The Story of Your Nonna Box

Each month, your Nonna Box arrives with its delicious and story-filled products ready to transport you to Italy via your kitchen. It’s a seamless and tasty experience, and yet so many stars must align before you ever receive your box.

One last taste of your Tuscan box

We’ve been so busy gearing up for Mother’s Day that we’ve hardly spent enough time oohing and ahhing over the Tuscany box itself.
