**Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I was on vacation for a little bit ^_^ I was getting a little overwhelmed with my jobs, school, and the blog, so I needed to regroup. But I am back, and you better believe that I have some awesome July boxes lined up for you!!**

There is a new subscription box in town that is designed to fit every taste, whether you like sweets, health food, or just throwing some meat on the grill! It's called Taste Trunk, and it comes in four varieties (for now - they plan on adding more options!):

The Sweet Trunk - "Designed to satisfy your sweet tooth"

The Gourmet Trunk - "features new items...from the best gourmet lifestyle brands"

The Health Trunk - "Healthy living, made easy"

The BBQ Trunk - "Discover a new world of BBQ"

Each trunk comes with 5-10 items per month, and also includes discount codes and recipe ideas. The cards included with this box are so detailed, and they really give you a good background on the companies that provided items for the boxes - see the pictures down below!!

I chose the Health Trunk, because I like having a variety of healthier snacks to choose from, but there are SO MANY different choices out there that it can be overwhelming! So I like having the subscription boxes to introduce me to new brands. It was super tempting to choose the Sweet Trunk, but I'm glad I resisted, because this box was AWESOME ^_^

The boxes all cost $29/month, with shipping included.

Very classy box - this was shipped inside of another box.

Detail on the box - so pretty!!
First look inside the box. I love how organized it is!
SO MANY CARDS! I love them! Each one describes a different product in the box, and some have recipes or coupon codes on them. One of the cards describes Taste Trunk and the idea behind their boxes.

Vigilant Eats Organic Superfood Oat-based Cereal (Coconut Maple Vanilla and Goji-Cacao) - Value $8.40

This cereal is SO GOOD. All you need is water - they even include a folding spoon in each container! So far I've tried the Coconut Maple Vanilla, and it was kind of like a mix between oatmeal and cereal. It was so good, and super convenient for on-the-go. These are also gluten-free, and contain no soy, dairy, additives, preservatives, or refined sugar! I really want to buy more of these!

Teatulia Organic White Tea Bags (FULL SIZE!) - Value $8.49

I'm not a huuuuge fan of tea, but I'm willing to give this a try. There are 16 individual teabags in this canister, but you can use each bag TWICE, which is a great value! It comes from a single garden farm in Bangladesh, and is certified USDA organic. It smells heavenly!

Nunes Farms Sweet Chipotle Almonds (1.5oz) - Value $0.75
Nunes Farms Maui Onion California Crunchies Almonds (1.5oz) - Value $0.75

I do not care for spicy foods myself, but my husband is a huge fan, and he LOVED the chipotle almonds! We also got the Maui Onion California Crunchies, which are seasoned almond halves. I ate those all by myself, and they were amazing ^_^ They make a great snack, and Nunes Farms offers many different flavors and varieties of almonds.

Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters - Value $2.19

These are yummy, crunchy, and all-natural snacks that are good all by themselves, or (as the card that accompanied the box suggested) in a salad! I'm sure they would be good in other ways too, and the package is the perfect size. Peeled Snacks also makes other flavors - I can't wait to try them!

Nibnaks Apple Cosmo - Value $2.19

A dried fruit combination of apples, cherries, and raisins. I love dried fruit, and these were so good! They had a great texture, and they were extremely flavorful. Nibnaks is also dedicated to supporting sustainable manufacturing practices and keeping their products organic. 

Thoughtful Foods Giddy Up & Go Granola, Notoriously Nutty and Seriously Seedy (1.5oz) - Value $2.50

I preferred the Notoriously Nutty variety over the Seriously Seedy, but they were both very tasty! They were the perfect size to cart along with us to go camping or to a softball game.
Thoughtful Foods was created by a mom who was battling food intolerance alongside her two children. The line is designed to help people eat and live healthier by making it easy. Love that!

Dang Coconut Chips (1.43oz) - Value $3.20

Named after the creator's mother (who was from Bangkok), these are simply toasted coconut "chips". I was a little wary of these at first, simply because I've had shredded coconut before and I know that I don't really care for the texture. But this stuff...WOW. It was so delicious that I was sad when the bag was gone! This was probably my favorite item in the box, and I will definitely be buying more of them. They were crunchy, sort of nutty, and not too sweet. SO GOOD!!

San Franola Granola (1.55oz) - Value $2.00

This granola was created by a dad who simply wanted a healthier option for his family when it came to snacks. You can choose to get this granola with or without raisins (mine was with raisins), and it only comes in one flavor. San Franola freshly roasts all their ingredients, which makes their granola low in sugar, high in protein and fiber, and all around delicious! It had a hint of honey flavor, and it was very crunchy. Yum!

GloryBee Foods HoneyStix (5) - Value $1.55

These are so yummy - a quick little pick-me-up that I can take anywhere. I packed a few in my lunch box for work, and I've saved a couple at home...but I had to try one right when I opened the box! It was so good - honey with a hint of watermelon flavor! GloryBee honey is all-natural, plus these sticks come in over 27 different flavors! They also have AgaveStix, which are a great low-sugar alternative to the HoneyStix.

Total value: $32.02

The box costs $29/month, so the value of this box exceeds the cost, which is awesome. Not to mention that I got to try a ton of different (and amazing!) brands that I never would have otherwise uncovered. I love this box, and I will definitely continue to subscribe!!

What did you guys think? Would you try a Taste Trunk? Which one would you choose?

Until next time..... <3
