Yay! It's open! The September Goodies Co. Taster Box was pretty nice! A good variety of unique food items… see below! I included a review for one of the items in the box, the rest of individual product reviews will come later!
Pure Life Spalsh Water: Mandarin Orange Splash - $1.00 on Amazon
Zone Perfect Nutritional Bar Greek Yogurt Chocolate Bar - $1.52 per 1.58oz bar
As you can see, I couldn't wait to take pictures to open the Zone bar up! It was really good for a nutritional bar (didn't have much of that nutritional bar "flavor"); it even had a delicious almost gooey layer of chocolate on the outside! Yum!! I would definitely keep this in mind next time I buy nutritional/meal replacement bars. I tend to get lazy with breakfast and usually opt for a Nestle or Carnation breakfast shake so this would be a pleasant little variety to my lazy breakfast routine.
Also, I should note that yesterday I was feeling like a cold was coming on AND I got around 4 hours of sleep. I'm the type that can sleep for 11 hours straight and feel like a zombie if I get less than 7 hours. So anyway, I grabbed the bar to go in the morning and nibbled at it over a couple hours. An hour or so after eating part of this bar I felt quite a bit of an energy boost! Alertness and feeling awake; it was so much better than a jittery, uncomfortable coffee caffeine high!
Ok, on with the rest of the box!
Numi Organics Savory Tea (Broccoli Cilantro) sample & $1.00 coupon- $0.67 per bag ($7.99 for 12ct. box)
Bare Fruit Fuji Apple Chips - Not sure about the price… I'd guess around $2.99, like the Kashi Crisps.
Sun-dried Tomato Basil & Feta Hummus Crisps - Also not sure about the price but a different flavored Kashi Hummus Crisps bag was priced at $2.99.
Gimbal's Scottie Dogs Licorice - $1.29 per 2.75oz bag
Attiki Thyme - ~$2.31 on Amazon ($29.99 per 455g container)
So, total this box has a value of ~ $13.77
Seems like a pretty good deal for $7/mth! Even better this month because I received it for free by using a promo code, I think the company may have emailed it to me after they noticed I didn't finish signing up or something. If I find a coupon code I'll definitely post it!
