Gourmet Goodies Delivered to your Door

There seems to be a couple of gourmet clubs out there where you sign up (and pay) and are sent a box of gourmet goodies once a month.  While, I normally like to go out and shop/hunt for fun, new food items, I think this sounds fun.  I love surprises in my mailbox, especially if it is food.  I’m also thinking this could be a great gift idea.

Here are a few that I found:

Gourmet Spotting
$29.99 (+ $7.95 shipping and handling)

“Every month, you'll receive a box filled with 4-6 delicious and tasty gourmet products from both up-and-coming and well known food brands. Each delivery will include a mix of categories, such as condiments, snacks, pasta & grains, sauces, etc... Products are generously sized, with enough product to allow you to enjoy it and share it. You'll also want to take advantage of Gourmetspotting.com, which is packed with product information and tips, including recipes, stories of our producers, and interesting news about the food industry.”

Love with Food
$10 (+ $2 shipping and handling)

“Love With Food helps you discover new organic, all-natural snacks delivered to your door every month. Our subscription membership starts as low as $10/month. Every month, Love With Food members will receive a curated box of unique, hard-to-find tasty snacks which varies based on seasonal themes.
For every box sold, we donate a meal to several food banks such as the Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength - No Kid Hungry. Join us to help end child hunger one meal at a time!
Say goodbye to boring grocery selections and start discovering your Love With Food experience!”

Fancy Food Box
$39 (+ shipping and handling)

“Each Fancy Food Box includes five or more food products - anything from cookies and chocolates to teas and sauces - along with a selection of tasty recipes and pairing suggestions.”

Artisanal Foods – Gourmet Surprise Box
$99 per month ($150+ Retail Value) Free shipping.

“Your kitchen will always be stocked with fun, handcrafted, inspirational ingredients.  Artisanal Foods will send an email previewing your upcoming order 5 days before it ships. Love what we've chosen for you? Do nothing and your box is on its way. Want to send it to a friend or skip the month (and the bill)? Simply change or cancel your order at anytime.”

Connoisseur of the Month Club
$29.99 (free shipping)

“If you’ve ever wanted to travel the different flavors of the world, but still enjoy the convenience of having the products shipped to your door, our Connoisseur of the Month Club is the perfect culinary getaway! Each month is themed around a country or a flavor, to demonstrate the varied and colorful flavors of our world. From Spanish tapas to Moroccan pantry staples to the smoky flavors of the American Southwest, we select the best products from a range of cultures, both near and far.


For particularly interesting products, we do occasionally select a single flavor to feature. In the past, these have included everything from the pungent flavor of Japanese wasabi to the revered black truffle. Each month’s shipment normally includes 4 items, although for select months it may be 2-3 items of exceptionally high quality. Each month’s shipment includes our newsletter, explaining that month’s theme, and the history behind each product. This newsletter details the product’s origin, who makes them, and serving suggestions for how to use them. Soon you’ll have a culturally diverse pantry of global ingredients.”

I’m curious if anyone has signed up for one of these "gourmet food clubs"?  I’d love to hear your experiences.

Meanwhile, I decided to sign up for the Food with Love club.  I will let you know when I get my box.

Cheers!
