Or maybe this was sent in a special way.
For me anyways, I am a bit more picky as I've had food poisoning from restaurants quite a few times and it is never fun!

They were packaged in sealed pouches and sent priority mail. Instructions were to refrigerate before opening.

Okay, I won the giveaway at Boxed Mom. I get it free this month. I'm sooooooo excited! I can't wait to see what we get this month. :D

This month wasn't up my alley but my bf like it. Fingers crossed for an awesome one next month. At less than $10 I can live with a bad box here and there.

Yeah, they are sealed/vacuum packed, which is safe. :) Pouches and jars of sealed olives, pickles, peppers, etc are all over, this is really no different. :)

Not sure if anyone else is subbed for this month, but I got:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

six different flavors of brownie brittle...you're tasked with guessing which is which (mint, orange, toffee, etc.) They were all pretty tasty except for the chipotle. I usually like spice but this just tasted bizarre.

That's so funny, I loved the one you didn't the best.  I was going to ask them where they bought them, I loved it so much :-)

OH MY GOSH! The first month I decide to pause they send brownie brittle icon_eek.gif...icon_cry.gif!!!!! lol

 

I'm glad you guys were able to enjoy it though-- definitely sounds like I missed out on a yummy box!

post #101 of 139

This was my first box, and I was very pleased.  The theme wasn't quite as "adventurous" as I'd hoped for, based on previous boxes, but it was definitely tasty!  This definitely isn't a sub for people who want a crazy amount of value for their money, but I think it is well worth $9.92 for a monthly treat.  It's just such a fun concept, and I appreciate the thought they put into it!

I skipped this month too!! So sad.  I thought I would be gone when it was delivered but it sounds like this one came later in the month. Boooo!!

post #103 of 139

I got a box for this month. I hope it's something good!

post #104 of 139

Just went to pause my account--money is tighter for me in the summer so I'm cutting down for a few months. It was so easy to stop my subscription! Yet another reason I'm in love with this sub!

I got my box today! This is only my second month, and I was thinking of cancelling, because I'm subscribed to sooooo many boxes, but The Jungle Stand is just so well done and fun, I can't give it up yet!

post #109 of 139

I want to hear what you guys got! I paused my sub but for some reason a box was shipped out to me anyway, so I'm really curious to hear what you got!

I have no idea how to post those spoiler links everyone posts,  but I'll type the theme in white here Welcome to Taiwan!

Sounds like Pineapple Cakes, Suncakes, Wife cakes (Yes they're called wife cakes lol), and a whole lot of cakes ahhaa... Sun cakes are delicious. I think my bf's family might be bringing some of everything from Taiwan this trip :).. their snacks are delicious! The thing is, is that taste will vary depending on manufacturer. Hope you guys get some well made items :)

The typing in white is as good at hiding spoilers, but if you want to add photos or anything there's a box next to the quotation mark (") that's a black comment bubble. Once you click that a new box will come up allowing you to type in whatever spoiler you want. I think for photos you need to upload them first, highlight them and then click the black bubble to make it a spoiler.

Thank you!! I'm not sure about some of these, but I'll have to do some experimenting. DEFINITELY not trying the fourth option though...I wonder if my cats could eat it?

LOL the fourth option is a bit scary for me, but I will try it and I will encourage my kids to try it without telling them what it is first haha. I think it's important for them to try new things, and I have never tried it, so I might like it! I like that some options I have had from this sub box push me out of my comfort zone, and it's a fun time with family whether I enjoy every taste or not.

post #118 of 139

Okay, after completing my tasting last night, I decided to pause,lol. Not sure if I could handle many more boxes like this one sick.gif  I ordered Glossy Box instead biggrin.gif
 

post #119 of 139

Squid, like the one that came in the box, doesn't have much flavor itself so it'll taste like whatever seasoning is added to it. 

post #120 of 139

Got my July shipping notice! 

 

My kids will be wary this time after not telling them about the squid until after they ate it last time LOL

 

I do hope it's something tasty this month!
