I heard about The Goodies Company from my mom. Yes, my mom. She knew about a monthly subscription box before I did. Crazy right? I wonder where I get my love for shopping, presents in the mail and grab bags from? Hmm.
For just a $7/month subscription, the Goodies Co. Taster’s Box features an assortment of trial-sized, delicious new foods delivered directly to your doorstep. This month the box included a handpicked selection of Goodies that are both delicious and nutritious!
Anyways, The Goodies Company is still in Beta testing (did I phrase that right?) and they appear to be working out a few kinks. They charged everyone $7 at the beginning of September and didn’t ship the boxes until last week, which I guess everyone was super annoyed about. I didn’t really care because 1) it’s only $7, 2) it’s somehow associated with Walmart (check out the bottom of the Goodies Co. website, 3) it’s in Beta still and 4) if I didn’t get the box, I could just dispute the charge with my CC company and it’d be taken care of.
Seriously, this box was huge. I was impressed.
And like all good boxes, it included an information card:
Here is what was in the box this month:
~snackLets Kale Chips (BBQ Flavor): I have never given a thought about a BBQ flavored kale chip. They don’t sound like they’d be tasty, but they aren’t all that bad. It’s like eating BBQ flavored leaves.
~Snap Infusion: Never heard of these before either, do I need to get out more or what? These actually are pretty tasty little suckers. Plus, they are infused with vitamins and electrolytes, so it’s not like normal candy!
~Somersaults: These are basically protein “nuggets”. They contain more protein than almonds and more fiber than an apple. Heck, I’m game for these. And once again, I’ve never heard of these.
~Rooibee Red Tea (Peach): I’m not a big tea drinker, but I will make B try this. I might sneak a few sips too. It’s an organic beverage that high in antioxidants and naturally caffeine-free. I’ll let you guess if I’ve ever heard of this ;).
~Sensible Foods Crunch Dried Snacks (Tropical Blend): While I have never heard of this exact brand, I have heard of dried fruit ;). These are pretty yummy and I may just buy some after I finish these off.
~Kashi Soft-Based Squares (Chocolate): Okay, I know all about these since I am doing a blog review on them soon! They are made with whole grains, agave, sweet potatoes and beans, so they don’t taste like brownies or anything. But they for sure don’t taste as funky as they sound!
~Wai Lana Chips (Lime Chili): These are made with nutrient-rich cassava (no clue what that is) and contain 30% percent less fast than regular potato chips. Sounds good to me. I am not into spicy things, so B is for sure going to have to try these first!
I am beyond thrilled with my first Goodies Co. box and will for sure be continuing my subscription. I honestly cannot believe I got this huge box full of goodies for only $7. Insane right? If you want to subscribe, click here to get on the waiting list. If all the boxes are this good, I imagine they are going to have a TON of subscribers, so hurry up!
