A detailed explanation of the products included.
A picture of some of the gorgeous recipe cards that come in every box. One of my favorite features of Bitebox!
Three Little Figs ‘Cabernet Cracked Pepper’ Jam (Value $12.50):
I’m not too fond of having a spicy element in my jam, so I’m kind of scared of the cracked peppercorns. I do think this would be good to use in a cooking recipe though!
Oregon Growers & Shippers Strawberry Pinot Noir Fruit Spread (Value $6.50):
I used this in a chicken recipe (with chicken broth and basalmic!) that was recommended on one of the recipe cards that came in this box. It was a hit! I wish I tried it before I put it in the recipe though, because it’s great by itself.
Liber & Co. Pineapple Gum Syrup (Value $8):
This sounds delicious, and has beautiful packaging! I definitely plan to use this in some mixed alcoholic drinks.
The Art of Caramel Kentucky Bourbon Black Pepper Caramalized Corn (Value $8):
Unfortunately this is another item that I’m not really a fan of, due to the pepper. The caramel has a nice rich taste, but I don’t like spice, specially with my sweet. That being said, I think this has a nice flavor profile that more ‘adventurous’ people would enjoy.
Stonewall Kitchen Sea Salt Crackers (Value $6.50):
These are delicious; lightly salted and butter. I’m aching to buy some mild cheese for it! Nommmm
Sfoglini: New York Pasta Shop Bronx Brewery BXB Radiators (Value $8):
This is a really interesting pasta…it’s brown in color and has a disgusting look lol. It has a gritty after-taste in texture, but I cooked it down a lot and I got rid of that taste. This makes a ton of pasta, and it was great for last nights dinner 🙂
Final Thoughts: The total value of this box (not including the reusable bag, shipping, and recipe cards), was $49.50. Very pleased! I always love how Bitebox manages to send things that are entirely different, but yet somehow manage to work together perfectly. (Example, the jam and crackers.) I love how the recipe cards are beautiful done, and the recipes on them are simple and delicious. Although I’m not a fan of a couple items this month, they make great items to pass on, or most can be used in cooking if you don’t like it for it’s original purpose! So in love with this subscription.
