Foodzie Out ---- Petit Amuse In

Share Article

With their recent acquisition by Joyus, Foodzie is out of the subscription gourmet sample box arena. Luckily, artisan food lovers can rejoice in a new start up, Petit Amuse, which promises unique delicious samples for just $10/month including shipping.

Petit Amuse Sample Box

Petit Amuse is a new online store that promotes sales of gourmet snacks from artisan food producers through a monthly tasting box. The company name is based on the French term, amuse bouche, which refers to an off-menu one-bite appetizer specially prepared by the chef. Similar to how an amuse bouche excites the palate, Petit Amuse aims to surprise and captivate its audience with new and crave-worthy treats. All products are hand-picked based on taste and company values.

Although Petit Amuse offers a monthly sample box subscription service, the similarities with Foodzie end there. Compared to Foodzie’s almost $30/month box, Petit Amuse is offering its monthly subscription box, which includes 3-4 deluxe samples, for only $10.

Further, customers who are interested in buying full sized products will find that Petit Amuse is a one stop shop. Instead of having to buy large quantities and pay shipping for each individual company at Foodzie, Petit Amuse customers can purchase a variety of products at any quantity on the website for $7.99 flat rate shipping.

Most importantly, Petit Amuse strives to create a real connection between the producers and consumers through in-depth producer videos and Q&As specifically created for Petit Amuse. It is this connection that will help support small producers and sustain artisan food production.
