Food Trip To Review October 2016

Wow, it has been a really great couple of months for Canadian subscription boxes. I have another new one to introduce you to. We have been spoiled lately and I have a feeling it’s just going to keep getting better and better. Today we are looking at Food Trip To. Every two months they deliver to their clients a new country in a box.

Food Trip To Review October 2016 – Final Thoughts

I am very intrigued by this box. While I wasn’t totally wowed by this month’s items in particular, I am really loving the idea behind it. Let’s break it down for a second…..each box comes with recipes, ingredients, and cooking utensils from another country. That is an AWESOME idea. You all know how much I love cooking, and how much I love receiving kitchen goods, I just think that the Japan box is a little out of my comfort zone. While the recipes are awesome and all, I find them just a tad intimidating, for me personally. I would love to see them planned out differently. The ingredient lists are all scrunched together and that might be adding to the intimidation factor. I am REALLY excited to see what the December box is all about.

XOXO
