I managed to get in on the very first (as in brand new) tasting box from Goodies, a new foodie subscription service that I came across while browsing the web. When I encountered the site, I first c0mpleted a short survey and it was determined that I should get the “Goodies” box (I guess there are other types of boxes associated with this company).
But these boxes seemed to get off to a rocky start. I was charged in the beginning of the month (err…that’s LAST month, mind you) and I did not receive September’s subscription box until yesterday … October 1st. Not ideal… especially since this is supposed to be September’s box. The excuse subscribers were offered about mid-month was that they wanted to include an extra “goodie” in the box, and felt that this one goodie would justify the hold on the shipment of the boxes.
OK, whatever. I’m a patient person. But, let’s just say that at that point, I’m not terribly impressed.
But now that the box is finally here, I am more impressed. That is to say, this is an impressive box. There are seven samples of different goodies. I’ve received fewer samples in other tasting boxes … for higher prices.
So what’s inside? The first thing I recognized immediately were the Pacific Sea Salt Somersaults. I’ve previously tried other flavor offerings of Somersaults and loved them, so I was excited to have them in this box, and even more excited to see that it’s a flavor that I haven’t yet tried!
Also inside the box were Crunch Dried Snacks from Sensible Foods, Gummy Multi-Berry Snap Infusion Candies, Kale Chips from snackLets, a bag of chips from Wai Lana, a package of Soft Baked Squares from Kashi, and a bottle of Rooibee Red Tea. (Yes, tea! Well, more accurately, rooibos, which I categorize as a tisane, but still!)
The best part about this box though, is the price tag! The monthly charge is just $7.00 … including shipping! Amazing! So, yeah, even though they had a late start on their first month rolling out the boxes, I can’t complain too much. I think that I definitely got my money’s worth with this box, especially when one factors in shipping cost.
So, just to recap, that’s SEVEN tempting goodies for just $7. I can’t wait to start sampling these goodies!
