The popularity of edible and medicinal mushrooms has grown immensely in recent years, and shows no signs of slowing.
Mushrooms offer incredible health benefits such as anti-cancer properties, enhanced mental function and clarity, enhanced immunity, and much more.
Over the years many innovative health products have been made from mushrooms, and the company Fantastic Fungi has taken it upon itself to serve mushroom lovers in a new way: with beautifully curated, artistic treasures known as Forager Boxes, packed full of exciting mushroom-based products I had the opportunity to try recently.
The Forager Box: A Mushroom Lover’s Dream From Fantastic Fungi
Each new Forager Box debuts at the start of each new season, and includes a bevy of hand-selected treasures.
The first thing I noticed about this item was the impressive artwork on the box.
Detailed and impressive in scope, it has the look of a collector’s item from the moment you lay eyes on it.
The second thing I noticed was how badly I wanted to delve in and find out which mushroom-themed goodies were inside.
Here are my impressions of what I found:
Rainbo 11:11 Super Multi-Mushroom Tincture-
Hands down this is the best medicinal product in the box. I’ve tried a lot of mushroom tinctures and this is up there with the very best of them.
Just look at the ingredients list below: premium organic mushrooms all in one tincture for maximum health benefits for mind, body, and spirit.
Chaga (Inonotus obliquus, Fruiting body) Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum, Fruiting body) Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus, Fruiting body) Cordyceps (Cordyceps militaris, Stroma) Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor, Fruiting body) Shiitake (Lentinula edodes, Fruiting body) Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus, Fruiting body) Royal Sun Blazei (Agaricus subrufescens, Fruiting body) Agarikon (Fomitopsis officinalis, Mycelium) Maitake (Grifola frondosa, Fruiting body) Mesima (Phellinus linteus, Fruiting body)
Other ingredients: spring water, organic beet ethanol (30%)
Hone Mushroom Matcha Drink Mix-
One word after trying this product: “Wow!”
I love matcha, and the added mushrooms add a lot to the mix. I love the product design, health benefits and ingredients in this one. It is an incredibly healthy and great tasting product (if you like Earthy tastes) whether consumed cold or hot.
Another first class addition to the Fall 2022 Forager Box (learn more or order your box here).
Fung-tional Superfood Mushroom Cacao Mix-
Continuing the theme of top-tier products here, this cacao mix is as good or better as any I have tried in recent months. It has a chocolatey flavor and lots of high quality mushrooms. It tastes more like a hot chocolate than a hot cacao drink and manages to balance those two sides of the equation quite nicely.
Moku Mushroom Jerky-
Before trying this, I had never tried mushroom jerky before. I tried the sweet and spicy variety. Overall I appreciate the ingredients and aim of this product, although it wasn’t my favorite.
This one includes inventive ingredients like organic coconut aminos and organic chickpea miso. Flavoring includes pineapple juice and cayenne pepper.
Overall, I enjoyed the flavor, I’m just not big into the texture of mushroom jerky. I could see mushroom jerky lovers enjoying this product very much.
Other Items in the Fall 2022 Forager Box
I don’t want to spoil it for you, but there are other additions to the Fall 2022 Forager Box. One such addition is a drink (my favorite item in the whole box) and the other is a reusable gift item. Still another is a miner-rich condiment that will surprise and delight you in several different ways.
