Callaloo Box Unboxing – March 2018 Posted in: Reviews
Try Trinidad & Tobago cuisine at home with the Callaloo Box which delivers sauces, condiments, snacks, and seasonings each month. Each box has a different theme and contains 4 to 6 items and costs $39.99.
My Callaloo Trinbago Creole Box included:
- Browning Sauce – used for meats, soup, stews and cakes
- Pimento Sauce – condiment
- Creole Seasoning – meat or seafood marinade
- Hot Pepper Sauce – condiment
- Cook Up Seasoning – meat or seafood marinade
- Coconut Milk Power – enhance the taste of soup, cakes or cocktails
- Jub Jub Candies
Cook Up seasoning and coconut milk powder

Overall I was highly impressed with the box, Malika and Jamila the co-founders of Callaloo Box designed. I loved how there was full sized bottles of the sauces, a detailed item listed with suggested uses, a recipe for Trinidad chicken pelau (and a link to watch them cook the dish on Youtube so you can follow along). This was the first time I’ve received a cooking video to complement a food book and I wish more food boxes included this feature as I find it much easier to follow along cooking when I can see how it is done.

The Callaloo Box would be perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about the food from Trinidad & Tobago. Offering excellent value per box, it is well worth the purchase.
