Why did you enter if you didn't want it?

If she's anything like me, I am always tempted to enter even though I have been appalled by the last several boxes, just on the off chance that it's an amazing box and then I would regret NOT entering. I resisted, but I was tempted.

Yup. That. ^

I didn't enter. I liked the thanksgiving box, but didn't like the coffee one or holiday spruce. Those were total wastes of money, I feel robbed. lol. But I'm hoping the people who got in at  least get their money's worth. Maybe they stepped it up after the complaints.

I'm in...card's been charged and I'm just waiting on my box.  This will be my second box.  I wasn't a fan of Thanksgiving (canned green beans and powdered turkey gravy...no thanks) but I'm not ready to write off cravebox just yet.  It did include the credit for the cards and stationary and even though I personally don't like chocolate a lot of people enjoyed the chocolate covered pomergrante seeds.  Hopefully this one will be wonderful!

Ha! They weren't chocolate covered "seeds"  they're more like a flavored gummy or soft candy center, they were the best part of the Thanksgiving box, although I have had them before and they were not new to me.  But I was still happy with them!

 

I'm curious what you guys get for the Winter fav's. I almost nearly signed up, but the last couple boxes (coffee and spruce up) were stinkers (in my opinion).  I would have gotten the most use out of the spruce up stuff, but $14 is a lot for shipping of samples (again in my opinion).

Box has shipped! smile.gif

post #44 of 86

Yay! Hoping for a good box. I have had about 3 crummy ones in a row! (Book Lover/ Thanksgiving/ Cooking Light). *sigh*

Addicted--what else can I do?

post #45 of 86
My shipping notice says the box weighs 1 pound and they used UPS this time instead of FedEx. Hmmm ... I am hoping for a good box, too.
post #46 of 86
mine shipped too, although the weight has me thinking this is a total dud, but i will wait and see

Weight is no indicator, though! Remember that this is a company that has sent out canned green beans, lol..:)

oh, i did not enjoy the salty caramel flavored Torani...i don't want salt in my coffee...thankyouverymuch.

Also, the Nectresse was really really sweet...wayy too much.

The coffee was meh...not strong enough for my buds.

I enjoyed the Dole fruit cups, and the McCormick is still in my pantry, unused.

So there!

Lol thanks for sharing. I was curious because i loved loved loved that box. Loved everything you mentioned above even baught more torani =X but that nectresse was a little too sweet, i loved the coffee. I think they need to fine tune their survey maybe so that people get items that they will really like. Even a question of how do you like your coffee. Would be helpful (in food based boxes) I am sorry you didnt like yours though =(

I think mine will be here Monday!

My tracking says my box has been in Des Moines since Friday. Um, it originated in Colorado. Des Moines is 150 miles farther East from Colorado than I am, like literally a straight line farther East from the city where I live. Could they not just have routed it through Omaha? I guarantee it will go through Omaha the day it's delivered to me. I am in Iowa, but all my out of state packages, whether UPS, FedEx, or regular USPS get routed through Omaha. One of my Birchboxes went to Des Moines once, but 8 hours later it was back in Omaha and I had it the next day. What is up with the way shipping works in this country. No wonder the USPS is practically banckrupt. Did anybody ever tell them or UPS that shipping things half a state farther than it needs to go wastes money and fuel and hurts their bottom line? Anyway, I will get it eventually, but shipping snafus lately have been very not amusing. I just thought I would share. What does everybody else think about stuff not shipping through the nearest major hub or by the most direct route?
