I know, my completely underwhelmed reaction is totally making you excited to read this review, right? Sorry. I promise, there were a few good things this month!
|Hey, at least the box is pretty neat!|
I already pretty much knew the contents of this box (thank you, MakeupTalk forum!), and for all the items that weren't very exciting, there was one that I knew would totally save the box.
Wine Gift Card! And $50 in wine from a $7 box is a pretty darn good deal! I've checked out the website, and the wines are usually sold in packs. In fact, you can't place an order for under 6 bottles (Ha, like that'd be hard). You do have to spend at least $51 to use the card, and there's a $10 shipping fee. So, however it goes, I'll be out at least $11. I'll let you all know if I find something good to use it on.
|Not sure how this would pair with the wine...|
The first actual food item was Kettle Corn by Angie's Popcorn. For some reason, I don't like sweet stuff on my popcorn, so I've promised it to Knight if he gets a smiley face from his teacher today! (This is why I probably won't cancel my subscription. SOMEONE in this family will eat everything in the box!)
|Wow. It even LOOKS boring.|
This was a Cashew & Coconut "truebar" from Bakery on Main. The premise is they have nothing to hide, so they don't coat their stuff in chocolate or try to make the packaging all exciting. Which means they totally haven't learned anything from 50 years of market research. My husband ate this, and I tried a small bite, and... DRY. Almost like the Belvita biscuits from last month. Dip this thing in some chocolate already!
|See? Chocolate! Exciting packaging! COOKIE DOUGH!|
Much better! Unfortunately, they made the packaging so exciting that my hubby pouted when I tried to claim this for myself. So, from the 1/2 a bar I was able to wrestle away from him, this tastes delicious! If I were seriously trying to lose weight, and wanted to indulge my sweet tooth while not falling off the diet wagon, this would be my choice. However, I'm currently on the add-more-fruits-and-veggies plan, with an occasional break for real cookie dough.
|Olomolo, I don't want to hear about your "righteous" nuts.|
These were hilarious. Unintentionally, I'm sure. My husband claimed these, and immediately popped about 5 in his mouth without taking the precaution of having a glass of water nearby. There's no excuse, he read the label. So all of a sudden he starts yelling "Cayenne! Cayenne!" and careening towards the fridge with a desperate look in his eyes. I probably wasn't much help, what with the laughing and falling to the floor. And while I appreciated the hilarity, my husband has requested that I not purchase these, and I'm going to respect that (tee hee hee!!).
|Ho ho ho....|
|If I drink this, do I have to do ALL of the activities |
on the bottom of the can?
Despite the pink can, I will not be going for the Raspberry Acai Green Tea Energy Drink from Celsius. Why? Well, it's not just the incredibly long and pretentious name. It's mainly because I act like a rabid Chihuahua when I have too much caffeine. And all the bouncing and yipping just aren't cute.
So that's this month Goodies Box. Not my favorite, but the last 3 months haven't been either. Do you hear me, Goodies? Cookies, and lots of 'em! Whole boxes!
Do you get Goodies? What did you like from this month?
