Food and Drink Subscription Boxes Mini-Series: Posted Pantry
This is the first instalment in my mini-series covering Food and Drink Subscription Boxes.
Food subscription boxes are still a relatively new phenomenon in the UK but they are going from strength to strength. The trend really seemed to gain traction when Ben Jones posted his first Graze box to offer lifestyle-conscious snackers an alternative to the dusty vending machine in the corner of the office.
Now you can satisfy your food foraging and drinks detecting needs for almost anything without even leaving the comfort of your own wifi hotspot. There are some brilliant subscription boxes out there for meat, alcohol, snacks, artisan food, grow-your-own kits and so much more. Think of them as your own personal foodie shopper trawling through the racks of artisan food and drink to find something that’s just in your size and colour.
Product Review: Posted Pantry’s Yorkshire Box
Appeals to: foodie foragers, local business supporters and farm shop frequenters.
This subscription box came parcelled up exquisitely to give a great premium feel as well as protecting the integrity of the goodies inside.
£22.50 which, for the volume of product you receive straight to your door, is brilliant value; plus you’re getting the added concierge service of hand picked products.
Twisted Chilli Tandoori Marinade
White Rabbit Yorkshire Honeycomb Chocolate
Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil
Bracken Hill Yorkshire Lemon Curd
Side Oven Organic Biscuits for Cheese, Organic Museli & Goldenberry’s
Posted Pantry have opted to bring together some of Yorkshire’s finest artisan producers as an introduction to quality food in the White Rose county.
Verdict: in a word, good’un! This is a great way to broaden your food horizons without leaving your own kitchen. In structuring the subscriptions regionally you also get a great sense of the story behind the producers and a greater insight into where the food comes from. Get yourself signed up!!
