Subscription Box: Taste Trunk – The BBQ Trunk Review & Giveaway – ends 7/23


As you all know I’m a huge subscription box fan, I have reviewed well over 20 different subscription boxes. I had never heard of Taste Trunk until they contacted me a few weeks ago.

Taste Trunk is a subscription box that is delivered to your front door once a month, it’s a little different as you can choose from FOUR different trunks. They have The Gourmet Trunk, The Health Trunk, The Sweet Trunk, and The BBQ Trunk. Each trunk offers 5-10 wonderful items, coupons, and background info to match the theme of that specific trunk.


I reviewed The BBQ Trunk! My husband is always complaining I never get anything for him when I do all these great reviews, so I figured I would review this one and make him happy. I even let him open it when it got here, he said it felt like Christmas!

bbq2Here’s what we received in our BBQ Trunk:
1- Recipe and Informational Cards
2- Saucy Mama Backyard Brat Mustard ($5.00)- This was really good, we had some cheddar brats the other day and used this on them, great flavor! I love that it was made with red wine vinegar instead of regular vinegar. Nice touch.
3- Northern White Cedar Grilling Plank 4 pack ($15.00)- These are so awesome. We haven’t used them yet, but I can’t wait to try these with a nice piece of salmon on the grill. Best part is we got 4 of them in this pack and they are reusable! They smell wonderful!
4- Humboldt Hot Sauce Mango-Habanero ($5.25)- I LOVE this sauce, it definitely has a kick, with a slight onion-y and mango flavor. I used this on some grilled chicken I had last week. Great flavor!
5- Bourbon Smoked Pepper ($9.00)- This reminded me a bit of lemon pepper, but with bourbon. We used this on some steaks we had on the grill, it had a wonderful flavor. I love the cute little tin it came in as well.
6- BarbiQ Spice Rub ($5.00)- This smells really great, I can’t wait to use this spice rub on some chicken for the grill. This is enough for 2lbs of food, so we will probably get 2 uses out of it.
7-Miners Mix BBQ Rub ($7.49)- This would be really great on some ribs cooked slow on the grill. It’s a generously sized container too.

As you can see the contents of my BBQ Trunk were exceptional and came in at a value of over $36! The BBQ Trunk is available for $29 shipped, each month (don’t forget to use my coupon code below) which is a great deal! It’s such a nice surprise to get such awesome products in a box delivered to your front door.
