Box 4 Contents:

 
Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams & Smooth Operator Packets (Actually not a bad size)
Wai Lana Fruit & Nut Bar in Pomegranate-Cherry (Nice sized bar)
Chips Ahoy! Chewy Chocolate Chip & Reeces (Two cookies, I think)
Plentils Crunchy Lentil Chips in Light Sea Salt (We shall see...)
Snackwells Yogurt Pretzels (100 Calorie Pack)
J & D's Bacon Popcorn (VEGETARIAN Bacon Popcorn...walking contradiction, no?)
 
 
 

 

This was the first month receiving this box, and I think it's okay. It doesn't seem as large as past boxes that they offered, but the majority are things that I would not have purchased.

I can't believe they're sending out chips ahoy... I spend so much time trying to get my super-skeptical of anything subscription-related boyfriend excited about this box (we're both foodies), showing him whole wheat fig bars and quinoa chocolate and wine crackers only to end up with something full of hydrogenated fats and HFCS. What a disappointment. :( Hopefully, the rest of the stuff will make up for that and I'll be able to trash the chips ahoy before he sees them.

Ok so my boxed shipped and is out for delivery. They really kept their promise regarding this month's shipping. This is the first time I've ever had my box ship earlier than the 20th.

post #130 of 201

Well, I've tried several things in my box and haven't really cared much for any of it...first time that's happened! Oh well, you win some, you lose some...hope next month is awesome.

This box disappointed me. A lot. December's box was the best, but January was good. February was just blah.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

the chickpeas were NASTY. and I like chickpeas.

I gave the bacon popcorn to one of the supervisors, as he loves bacon and I wouldn't be able to stomach the stuff. It is a reasonable sample product though.

The peanut butter sample size was great (two massive foil packets). I'm sure it'll be ok, but I prefer crunchy peanut butter.

The lentil chips. tasted like puffed oats. No thanks. Waste of calories.

The chips ahoy were ok, but nothing I would buy again. Same with the yogurt pretzels

Overall, my issue was that the products were mostly unremarkable and cheap. It just didn't feel like a box of goodies. It felt like a lunchbox put together by a 12 year old who wanted to pretend he was eating healthy.

I think I would have liked the chickpeas had I gotten a different flavor, but I got the spicy ones and I'm not much on spicy.

 

Haven't tried the popcorn yet...I do like bacon but we'll see what I think of the popcorn...

 

I tried the chocolate peanut butter packet and it was just okay. Not chocolately enough for me! But tasted good. Probably woudln't buy it, though...I'll stick with Nutella.

 

The Plentils were boring and I agree, not worth the calories. I didn't think they were gross, but I didn't think they were good, either.

 

I dislike Chips Ahoy, I just don't think they taste good and I don't care for the texture.

 

Snackwells...well, I do like yogurt pretzels. But they are certainly nothing new or interesting...

 

I just don't get the inclusion of the Snackwells and CHips Ahoy. I thought this box was meant to introduce us to new/interesting goodies, and I'm pretty sure nearly every person in the dang country has tried a chips ahoy cookie and a yogurt pretzel...

post #133 of 201

And I loved this month's theme...I just don't think they did enough with it.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Looove the idea of odd pairings. But these things weren't odd pairings. 

 
Why not a bacon chocolate bar? So many possibilities.

 

post #134 of 201

Got mine today. Hub immediately stole the bacon popcorn but he hasn't popped it yet. We were too busy eating the graze box lol. Tomorrow we will test drive this one.

post #135 of 201

Vegetarian bacon popcorn?? sounds interesting.

 

I remember going to a Korean new year's event and they had food tables- one lady was selling vegetarian chicken someweird named dish.

And I thought it was because her english was bad and assumed she meant "chicken and vegetables"? nope.

A lot of asian shops here sell flavored tofu that is like beef, chicken or fish.

The dish I tried had chicken-style tofu (it was fine).

Bacon salt is vegan, as are Bac-o's, so I don't think it's that weird :)

 

Haven't tried it yet, though!

I didn't care for the bacon popcorn . It has a strange taste...not bacon-like. Not even fake Bac'os-like. It was very salty though. Not something that I would buy. I do like the Lentil Chips those are pretty good.

I tried it this morning for a snack. I didn't mind it, but I wouldn't buy it. It smelled exactly like bacon while cooking, but didn't taste especially bacony while eating it.

got box #3:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

-lentil chips

-chips ahoy

-pb/chocolate spread

-snackwell yogurt-covered pretzels

-bacon-flavored popcorn

-chickpea snack

kind of a huge box to send out such small samples lol

 

other than the pb/chocolate spread, I'm not particularly excited to try anything, but I wouldn't say I'm disappointed either. all subscription services seem to do this; the first few months are great--attract a lot of hype, etc--but the rest just can't compare (even though they're not bad in and of themselves). realistically speaking, I don't think it'd be financially viable for them to continue sending boxes like December's, since the sub is (currently) only $7.

 

I tried the chips ahoy cookies, and they're actually not too bad, just a little too sweet. though, it seems a little schizophrenic to send organic/HFCS-free/all-natural snacks, along with nabisco stuff. haven't tried anything else, but I'm curious to see how that bacon popcorn tastes!

post #140 of 201
I'm not disappointed in this box. I wouldn't say I'm thrilled either, but it has a decent amount of varying items. It's not super exciting considering its my first box, but I definitely don't want to give up on it already. One thing I'll say is I'm not too pleased with the familiar brands, only because I signed up to try new interesting brands, but I'm sure they'll both taste good anyway.

I was away for the weekend, but when I got back, my box was waiting for me. :) Below is a pic of what I got in Box 9.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

I'm a little disappointed in this box because of all the hype the company's had with the past boxes. I loved the items that were included in those boxes, so this one was a let down, especially since it was my first box. I haven't tried anything just yet, but just going off a first impression when I opened my box. The one item I'm dreading to try is the bacon popcorn.

 

For one, I don't have a microwave in my house since I'm used to not using one growing up, so I'll have to go to someone else's house to try it. Secondly... I've never understood the concept of bacon flavored anything that's also vegan and vegetarian friendly. It just doesn't sound right... or appealing. I rather have the real thing...

This is box 7

Excited to try the margherita pizza chips and not thrilled about banana fruit bar...

post #143 of 201

I got my box.  It wasn't incredibly impressive, but I always find something that either I or the kids like that is completely unexpected, and that's why I would never cancel Goodies!  My highly picky 3-year-old actually liked the Plentils, and I'm very happy to find something I can give him instead of chips!   We're trying out the cheddar-bacon popcorn today... should be interesting!

post #144 of 201
I was so excited to receive my first box this month but never received a shipping confirmation... So I checked my account and come to find out, my account is suspended. WTF?! I never suspended it. All is well, no one seems excited about this box.
post #145 of 201

I got box 7 and OMG, the plentils are so good! I wasn't impressed at first with the box contents (especially the chips ahoy...hate those), but the plentils make up for it. Allergen free for me which is a huge plus!

Box 15, more on my blog. I was not real impressed. The Chick Pz were revolting to me. I like chick peas but they made them disgusting somehow lol. The box seemed too junk foody for my tastes, but I'll give it a few more months as it's so cheap.

Somehow... that doesn't surprise me. >.< What did it taste like, out of curiosity? Was there any actual bacon flavor or something fake tasting?

post #150 of 201
I was throwing out the bacon pop no expiration date on it. I'm date crazy.
