The box arrived on the afternoon of November 20th. I was kind of surprised, really, because I have gotten used to the box arriving much closer to the end of the month… but it seems that with each month, the Goodies Box arrives just a little sooner than it did the month previous. I’m OK with that. They’re ironing out the kinks, and still managing to keep the price at just $7 per month. I’ve been happy with this subscription.
The theme of this month’s box is “Entertaining Made Simple,” and while I don’t usually do much entertaining (I am agoraphobic, and I usually have trouble with one guest, more than one is positively anxiety-inducing!) I do enjoy the foods one might serve at a dinner party … as they make fantastic tea-time treats.
And, incidentally, this box does include a tea! Granted, it’s bagged tea (Hey, Goodies Company, get in the know! Loose leaf is the only way to go!) but it’s still tea. Bigelow Tea’s Pumpkin Spice tea, to be precise. I’ll be reviewing that tea on the SororiTea Sisters blog at some point!
The other goodies in this month’s box include: American Vintage Wine Biscuits, Lotus Bakeries Smooth Biscoff Spread, Bobbysue’s Original Flavored Nuts, Pumpkin Souffle Mix from Flourless Bliss, White Cheddar Popcorn from Oogie’s, and a Dark Quinoa chocolate bar from Alter Eco. Yum! Looking forward to these yummy items … and they are all new-to-me! Bonus!
And speaking of bonuses, this box did include a special bonus gift! Upon opening the box, I was greeted immediately with a reusable, canvas shopping tote! Wow! The card insert that is included with every box explains:
We are grateful to have you as one of our first subscribers! To show our thanks we are excited to gift you the enclosed Goodies Co. Farmer’s Market Bag.
Yay! I do try to bring my stash of reusable bags every time I shop … sometimes, I forget, but, I do try. And it will be nice to have yet another to add to my stash! It will definitely be put to good use.
This is the best box from Goodies Co. yet!
