October Taste Trunk Sweet Trunk Review

Taste Trunk is one of the subscriptions I get every month.  Taste Trunk has four different trunks: Healthy, Sweet, BBQ, and Gourmet.  Taste Trunk is $29.00 a month and there is a shipping charge for new subscribers.  Every month, you get 4-5 tasty treats that fit with the box you choose.  The boxes themselves, are very nice.  The inside lid of the box always has a picture to fit with the month.  I like the little embossed seals in the box.  I loved my sweet trunk so much last month, I decided to try it again.
The Trunk Box
All trunks ship in the same boxes.  I love the embossed seal on the top.  The boxes ship priority mail, so the shipping charge is worth it.  These boxes are heavy!


First Look
Taste Trunk wins the award for best packaging.  They have an attention to detail that I love.  Notice the black and orange colors for Halloween
The Goodies
Cake Coconut Macaroons Price Unknown
These are made by the Cake company.  They are located in Lafayette, Ca.    They are famous for their coconut macaroons,  They also make specialty cakes.  These look delicious but unfortunately, my husband and I hate coconut.  I will be giving this to my father, who is very excited to receive them.
Marlos $14.99
Ahhh chocolate.  Now we are talking.  These are similar to biscotti, but different.  They have the crunch that biscotti has, but it’s a bit softer.  The bag has two different flavors: Midnight Marlos and Original Marlos.  My favorite were the Midnight Marlos.  They are made with Italian espresso, cocoa, Callebaut, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.  The original is made with chocolate chips, chocolate covered raisins, walnuts, orange juice, vanilla extract and cinnamon (among other ingredients).  The Midnight Marlos are really good.
Il Molenetto Bakery Italian Hazelnut Cookies $6.00
This company is based out of California.  These are made from hazelnuts and almonds with a layer of dark Belgian chocolate.  These were yummy!
Wooden Table Baking Co: Alfajores $7.30 est
These are vanilla cookies filled with dulce de leche and rolled in grated coconut.  Dulce de leche is made from heating sweetened milk until it caramelized.  Oh, the coconut, we are not friends.  I am going to have my father try these and let me know how strong the coconut is.  I really hate coconut, so I don’t think I will like these.  These sound really good (minus the coconut).
Information Cards
Taste Trunk always sends information cards with detail about the company and products of all the items in the box.  
The Whole Box

Final Thought: This box was disappointing to me.  I hate coconut, so that took two of the items.  I am not upset with Taste Trunk though.  This is the nature of subscription boxes.  Sometimes you like the products, sometimes you don’t.  Coconut is loved by many people, just not C and I.  We did enjoy the Marlos and the Italian Hazelnut cookies.  If you are interested in signing up, save  save 25% on your 1st trunk by using
