Taste Trunk Review – The Sweet Trunk

Last month I mentioned that I had picked up a discount voucher and was going to check out The Sweet Trunk from Taste Trunk. Well, that box came and I was so unimpressed that I didn’t bother writing a review.

A funny thing happened, though.

I forgot to cancel my subscription and another Taste Trunk arrived at my door this month. Normally I hate when I forget to cancel, but it ended up being a fortuitous mistake this time around as the July Sweet Trunk was 100% better. I’m not sure if last month’s box was so bad because I had used a coupon and thus received a crappy box, if this box varies from bad to awesome each month, or if last month was just an off month. Regardless, I wasn’t expecting much from the July box so to say that it far exceeded my expectations would be an understatement.

Here’s what I received in The Sweet Trunk from Taste Trunk:

Gummy Bears

Bissinger’s Gummy Pandas – These were JUST what the doctor ordered yesterday. As soon as I poked through the box I had downed the package of blackberry hibiscus Gummy Pandas. They were absolutely delicious. These are two full-size bags and, if I’m not mistaken, this is a product that is sold at Whole Foods.

2014-07-21 20.32.10

Suite Foods Liège Waffles – So, these were dessert last night. I had the chocolate drizzled waffle and my husband had the non-chocolate waffle. These were a little stale coming out of the packaging, but were perfect after 20 seconds in the microwave. Apparently Suite Foods is a waffle shop in San Francisco that I’m going to have to visit the next time I’m out west.


Chronicle Books Friends and Family Sale: 35% Off Everything

The Chronicle Books Friends and Family Sale is happening now and you can take 35% off everything they sell!

Chronicle Books Coupon: Use code “FRIENDS” at checkout to take 35% off your entire purchase from Chronicle Books. This offer is valid through July 28, 2014.

While Chronicle does have fiction and literature, I’m always drawn to their gift items.

Case in point:

Outfit a Day Planner

This Outfit a Day Fashion Planner would make a great gift for the aspiring fashion designer. Figures appear on each page, allowing you to draw in a new outfit for each day. It could be good for planning out future outfit inspiration, or future design inspiration. Normally $14.95, it’s $9.71 after the discount is applied.

Beer Nerd Trivia Game

Despite being a book store, you can also find items like this Beer Nerd Trivia Game, which is a great gift idea for beer lovers. Normally $35, it’s $22.75 after the discount is applied.

Blog Inc.

I own Blog Inc. and it is full of fabulous tips for both bloggers and aspiring bloggers. Normally $16.95, it’s $11.01 after the discount is applied.

Shipping is free on all $25+ purchases at Chronicle Books.

Treat Yourself: Splendid Marcel Stripe Maxi Cover Up Dress

Splendid Marcel Stripe Maxi Cover Up Dress

Through the end of the day tomorrow, July 23, 2014, you can take an extra 25% off select sale items at Shopbop with code “25EXTRA”. This discount doesn’t apply to all sale items, just the ones found here.

I took a gander and while I wasn’t blown away (sometimes Shopbop is a little hit or miss), I did stumble upon this Splendid Marcel Stripe Maxi Cover Up Dress that’s on mega-sale and would make a fab treat for anyone wearing sizes XS or S. Originally $108, it’s now on sale for $32.40. After the additional 25% discount you’ll pay just $24.30, which is nearly an 80% discount overall.

Shopbop is now an Amazon-owned company and as such ALL orders ship for free using two-day shipping. There’ve been times, however, that I receive my order the very next day!

Beauty Box 5 Coupon: Get Your First Box for $6

BeautyBox5 August 2013 Unboxing

When it rains it pours! A rare Glossybox coupon was offered this morning, and now there’s an even more rare Beauty Box 5 coupon available!

For the first time that I’ve seen, new subscribers can get 50% off their first box from Beauty Box 5! Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty subscription box that sends out 5 deluxe beauty samples each month for $12 (including shipping). After the 50% discount is applied the first box will cost just $6, which is a fantastic deal. Beauty Box 5 can occasionally be a little hit-or-miss, but as a subscriber since day 1 I would say that EVERY box has been worth at least $6.

Beauty Box 5 Coupon: Use code “HALFOFF” at checkout to receive your first box from Beauty Box 5 for just $6. Please note that this offer is only valid for first-time subscribers.

Check out my July Beauty Box 5 review for an idea of the types of products you can expect to receive each month. The July box was actually pretty fantastic and included two full-size products!
