As my love for subscription boxes continues to grow so do the number of options – in an effort to tame my squirellness I have been trying to choose brands I can actually put to use. What is more useful than food!?!
Meet The Tasting Board, the delicious compliment and sister brand to Bright Cellars (check out my post here), a wine subscription company founded by two MIT grads. The Tasting Board uses an algorithm and a super short quiz based on your taste preferences to suggest amazing cheeses you likely have never tasted.
I’ll be the first to admit, while I LOVE me some cheese, I am by no means knowledgeable on the topic – maybe even less so than I was with wine – but they make it so easy and fun, I knew I had to test it out!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
- Begin by taking their super short online taste assessment by answering a few questions based on taste preference.
- Next, view your matches (and get PUMPED) for the curated selection of cheeses you will be receiving! They even offer a “surprise gift” option at check out – which can range anywhere from a cheese knife to add a fun element to your cheese board to a yummy compliment to the cheese matches, like a chocolate or a jam, etc.
- Before you know it your uniquely packaged cheese (including 4 different varieties) arrives at your door!
- The best part, after you eat them, you can rate each cheese (sort of like Pandora) and next month the selections sent take into account your preferences!
My package arrived just in time for dinner with a few friends. Naturally I brought the box along with me and it was a hit!! Legit – it ended up being the theme of the night! Each cheese comes with a card telling you where it’s from, what it tastes like and what it goes well with. The Gouda Truffle was hands down the crowd favorite. I mean, who doesn’t love a good truffle. In second place was the cheese furthest from my comfort zone (and exactly why I love services like this), the Red Rock Roelli, a cheddar blue cheese!
I even attempted my first pass at homemade mac and cheese! Which was a great success – I know this because my Fiancé considers himself to be a mac & cheese connoisseur and there were no leftovers to speak of!
I obviously liked this box for the delicious selection of cheeses, but I was equally as impressed (and surprised) at just how much fun it was – the tasting board is my new go to when heading to a friend’s house!
HOW YOU CAN GET IN ON THIS?
You can take the quiz yourself – its super quick and easy, it asks things like what is your fav dessert and snack preferences!
