Foodie Pages Tasting Box Review - April 2014 - Gourmet Food Box

This post contains referral links.
What is it? Foodie Pages Tasting Box
How much? $14.95 one time purchase, plus shipping
What's in it?  5 scrumptious tastes from some of Canada's top food makers

After ordering the March Tasting Box last month, I decided to get the April box as well. The box shipped the first week of April and was larger than a usual Tasting Box. It was also heavier!

 
First look


Louise Prete Fine Foods Sugo Pomodoro all'Amatriciana (737g jar, $9.99)
This is what was so heavy!

Kimberley's Own Nibscotti (3 pack sampler, ~$3)
This is a new addition to the Kimberley's Own line of all natural granola. It's so new it isn't even available for sale on Foodie Pages.

Batch Sweet Kitchen Salted Caramel Popcorn (5g sample, $0.50)
This sample was tiny... like a third of a cup tiny... but it was absolutely delicious!

Manning Canning Spicy Tomato Jam (45ml sample, $1.50)
This product is already a favourite of mine. I've been purchasing full size jars from Foodie Pages for a while now, usually two at a time, every 3-4 months. It's amazing with eggs, and also great in place of ketchup on burgers and meatloaf.


The April Foodie Pages Tasting Box contained four products, with an approximate value of $15. The value is exactly what I paid, not including shipping, which runs close to $10. This is the second box I've received post-subscription model change. Both have been very low value - equal to the cost of the box. Prior to the model change, the boxes always had very good value for money paid. Now with the low value, plus the cost of shipping, I'm not sure the Tasting Box is worth it anymore. It's a shame because I've discovered quite a few great products and great companies through the Tasting Box.
