This months box:

1) Turbana’s Natural Plantain Chips- I’ve never actually had any type of plantain chips, so i’m curious about these.

2) Newtree’s Organic Chocolate in Milk Chocolate with Cinnamon & Dark Chocolate with Belgian Biscuits. These are very itty bitty but look interesting.

3) GoGo Squeez – Apple on the go in AppleStrawberry. I’ve been wanting to try one of these suckers!

4) Firecracker ChocoPod– with sultry sea salt, smokey chipotle and dark chocolate. Best part? Its only 50 calories. It looks very tempting.

5) David Rio’s Tiger Spice Chai- this will have to get in line I have tons of other samples I have yet to try.

6) Kyotofu’s Modern Japanase Dessert (3 flower shaped Shortbread Tea Cookies)– this is a gluten free treat. Kyotofu’s has actually received New York’s Best Cupcake Award from New York Magazine.

That’s it folks!

Teen Time Cravebox – The Bubble Smacking & Good Looking Edition

I just got the Teen Cravebox today but I have to say this seems suitable for most ages. I loved this box and I’m so glad Cravebox is back in the game with some pretty kick ass boxes again. I have to say they pretty much got things for teens right on this and thus my title of bubble smacking & good looking edition box.

This box was priced at $11 including shipping. Cravebox has entries into a raffle for the theme box you enter into. Great way to be suprised and still get what you want. Check them out at :

I’m excited to try this out since its winter and well because I’ve hit my mid 20’s and prevention is the best method right? The consistency of this is lot thicker than it looks so a little goes a long way. Price ranges from $5.50 to $7.50

Its a Winter Wonderland with the Winter Favorites Cravebox

Hey Guys,

The holidays are over and radio stations are no longer playing Christmas music (yet here I am listening to it on spotify). I got my Winter Favorites Cravebox a little over a week ago but I’ve been wrapped up with festivities and shopping. Getting down to business the cost of the box is $14 and well over worth it! I really love this box, check out what was inside!

Winter TimeWinter inserts

Inside the box:
1) Camball’s Golden Butternut Squash Bisque- This came with a recipe card. This retails for about $3.99

2) Heniz Chili Sauce- This also came with a recipe card for meatballs, although this a great combo for fries or burgers (tried & agreed). $3.99

) Mary Kay’s Lip Gloss- I received the Red Pass 3 ion (Shimmer) lip gloss which is the perfect holiday color. This itself retails for $14! This is my first time trying a Mary Kay product and I have to say I am impressed with the product, it had good staying power and the color was as beautiful on as it seems in the bottle.

Holiday Time- Love with Food Box

The Holiday box of Love with Food arrived a few days ago but the holiday preparations have been keeping me busy. I really liked the holiday box, just because there were so many yummy goodies to try. Have a look.

Image

What the box contained:

1) Bag of 479 Sea Salt Caramel

2) Nunes Farms Honey Cinnamon Almonds

3) Nikkis Gingerbread Boy Cookie

4) 4 Taffy Town’s Salt Water Taffy Candy- this is pretty amazing stuff!

5) Big Chocolate Dipper’s Belgin Milk Chocolate Dipped Nutter Butter Cookie (whew that was a mouthful).

6) Kara Chocolates’s Candy Cane Milk Chocolate Truffles- I have to say I loved these, they melt right in your mouth. I would end up comparing the quality of the chocolates to Lindt.

7) Madecasse Chocolate’s 2 mini chocolates

8) Hill’s Brothers Mocha Mint Cappuccino Mix

9) Inserts for Ecomom ($10 credit for first time users), Craft Coffee’s 10% off (code LOVEFOOD), Cloud Mom, and Virgin Wines

I am pretty impressed by this box, it had the box completely filled with great samples. I was considering canceling my subscription after next month to cut down on costs, but now I’m re-considering. This month Love with Food also donated 2 meals for every box to NY & NJ Food Banks for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Moms: I have two Ecomom credits available from Love with Food that I have no need for. The first two people to reply (subscribed users) can have them! 

What do you think of this box? Have any subscription boxes that you love?

Wakey Wakey- Coffee Lover’s Cravebox

I stalked my mailbox the day this was suppose to arrive, thats how excited I was.

The Coffee Lovers (<3) Cravebox was $12

Image

I was expecting different coffee samples so I was surprised when I received only one coffee bag. Still completely worth it!

These are full sized items, which is way better than receiving small sample sizes. I think its cute how they decided to make it a coffee gift bag of sorts, with the little things one takes with coffee. If I wasn’t greedy I could have used this as a gift that a number of my friends would have loved.

I received:

1 Bag of Tully’s French Roast Coffee 

1 Bottle (375 mL) of Sugar Free French Vanilla Torani’s Syrup – We are looking forward to opening this and using it around christmas time with our family. We loved the last bottle we had received with Cravebox which was salted caramel. They also included a $1 off coupon.

Barbara’s High Fiber Cranberry Medley Cereal– This was a single serving with cranberry (as the name suggests) and pomegranates. I already ate this and its pretty dang good, sweet and the right amount of crunch.

2 Biscotti’s from Bakery Brothers 1 in Almond & 1 Cranberry Blueberry Almond 

This box beside the coffee (we are still working on our first bag) has already been put into good use. So I personally really like this box. So here’s to dragging myself up in the morning and brewing a nice strong roast so that I am less likely to hurt someone in the early hours of the day. Cheers!

My First Naturebox – Chow Down Time

Image

Yes, I know another subscription box service. BUT my justification (because I always have one) is that its HEALTHY snacks. This is something I would buy anyway when I go shopping so this saves me the ordeal of finding them and buying them. Because let me be honest when I don’t have the healthy snacks available and I’m out or hunggray I will hit that vending machine or scour my house for food/snacks.

This subscription box cost me approx $11 for my first month with the code NAPA40, which offers you 40% off the purchase. The regular retail price for this box is 19.95 a month including shipping. The box I have pictured is the November or December box which I received this morning.

Naturebox:

Each month, your box will include 15 to 20 servings across 4 to 6 different NatureBox snacks. We take pride in picking the healthiest and most delicious snacks for you to enjoy. You can trust that our products will be made from the most wholesome ingredients and will be minimally processed, if at all. Everything you eat from us will abide by our strict quality standards.

These snacks have no high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, trans fat, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavor or colors.

The December box contained:

1) Carrot chips        2) Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds     3) Cinnamon Spiced Granola

4) Chipotle Maple Almonds        5) Country Ranch Chickpeas

I have already opened up my ranch chickpeas which I was really surprised that I like since I’m not a fan of ranch.  The almonds I’m half way through the bag which I had to steal away from my mother because she got her hands on them.

**This box was bought with my own money & I was not reimbursed for my post**
