Fancy Pants Food Box November 2013 Review

The Box
This is the very first Fancy Pants Food box! I am so SO excited that I heard about it beforehand and was able to snag the first box for free (they were giving away free boxes from a promotion code I had found)! Even if I DID have to pay for this box, I would have still absolutely loved it! As a matter of fact, I believe I WILL be paying for this box next month; I want to keep them coming!

Fancy Pants Food box is “…Amazing food you’ve probably never heard about, to your doorstep every month. You get 5-8 trial sized products and they are always from off the wall brands that are new and up and coming or just that you most probably haven’t heard of before or are really familiar with. This is certainly a wonderfully unique box!

cost
This box is ONLY $10/month! That is such a great price if the boxes are always like their first amazing box this month.

the goods
In this first box, a card was included with a little list of the products + prices of full sized items. They also have a “Fall” theme going.

Fall is in the air! It’s the perfect time for family, friends, and FOOD! We hope you enjoy all of the great discoveries in this month’s box.”

Fancy Food Box November 2013 Review

IMG_3746
The Box Fancy Food Box sends out amazing gourmet artisan foods every month! Full sized items, and all things that you wouldn’t normally buy in the store. This is my fourth Fancy Food box and I have loved each and every one! This month, they did a Thanksgiving theme : )
IMG_3747
cost $39/month, + shipping costs (mine is $7.95). The value of the products inside is almost always double the cost of the box, if not more. Even if the value WASN’T that high, I’m sure they would still make an awesome box that was worth it! The Fancy Food Box has yet to bring me down.
