~We were out of town for the weekend and I didn’t have a chance to work on any reviews. I have to get caught up ASAP because I have a lot of boxes coming in the mail this week. So now you know why I haven’t been around, but you can look forward to lots of reviews this week!
I was one of the lucky few who were able to purchase the Foodie Pages Tasting Box. This subscription box used to be available to regular subscribers, but they changed the subscription plan in August and they now only make 50 boxes available. It’s on a first come first serve basis. Boxes go on sale the first of each month at noon EST.
Cost is $14.95.
The Tasting Box includes 5 scrumptious tastes to enjoy, made by Canada's top foodmakers. This is your chance to sample and learn from the incredible culinary talents right here in our own backyard!
Number Three Crisps from Feys + Hobbs (Victoria, BC)
Deliciously addictive and good-for-you multigrain crisps. We love them because they’re the perfect one bite size - and they don’t fall apart and ruin your party outfit.
Deluxe Soup Mix from Full of Beans (Bornholm, ON)
Ten different types of locally grown beans in one impressive package! Makes a hearty, gluten-free soup which packs a healthy punch. Comes with Kim’s soup recipe, too!
Magnificent Mango Chutney from Major Craig’s (Ottawa, ON)
Chutney made tasty! Magnificent Mango is Andrew’s newest flavour, packed with loads of mango and a dash of cumin. Try it on a grilled cheese sandwich!
Spicy Tomato Jam from Manning Canning (Toronto, ON)
Each jar is handmade with special attention to every detail, from the selection of ingredients to the creation of the recipe. We love to spread it on a toasted English muffin, topped with a fried egg and spinach. Who needs ketchup?!
Newget from The Newget Kompany (Edmonton, AB)
Newget is no ordinary confection. It’s a wildly original chocolate base treat that always starts with a foundation of the finest dark, milk, or white chocolate. Newget flavour comes from roasted nuts and spices mixed in- different taste combinations to satisfy your next craving.
I purchased this Tasting Box as a gift for a relative, so I didn't sample anything. I will definitely try to get this box again next month. I love the idea of trying all these Canadian food companies. Did you get in on this month’s box? What do you think of the Tasting Box?
