Goodies Box Review
This is a review of my recent Goodies box. This is a great box for trying out new food and snack products.
Item 1: Lays Stax Que Rico Adobadas chips - these have a slight spicy flavor but nothing extreme. They are also slightly cheesy. The website describes these are potato chips with a mexican flair and I feel like the description fits. This is a full size item.
Item 2: Cheddar Cheese Seaweed Crumbles- These look neat, but honestly I am not sure where I put them, maybe my husband ate them LOL. He likes stuff like this. Decent size snack pack.
Item 3: Dream Water NightTea night- this is in my fridge but I have not tried this. It is similar size to an energy or vitamin shot like they sell at the all the stores, these are just over $11 for a six pack on the goodies shopping section.
Item 4: 2 pack of Highland shortbread cookies- These are delicious, probably the best shortbread cookies I have ever had. SO good. Each bag retails for $5.99 and totally worth it, thinking of buying some.
Item 5: Pringles stix cheese- These are brand new and not even available for purchase on the site. Fed them to my one year old and my husband and they both loved them, kind of like a cheese cracker in stick form. Pretty yummy, not sure how much these will retail for, but it was neat to try them before anyone else I guess !
Item 6: Smooth snacks fruit pouch- This is similar to a lot of applesauce and fruit snacks out there, except that these have Chia seeds mixed with the fruit, makes it more filling but also more expensive. These retail for over $11 for six according to the shop on the site. Wow, it was good but not sure I would purchase at that price.
The Goodies box was $7. This is in Beta so not sure if it is yet available to everyone, someone had an invitation code that they gave me for this. Right now they are having free shipping on the site and a lot of things are on sale, so a great incentive to buy some full size items if you like what you got.
Also, you earn points for reviewing items. I have 162 points and apparently I am 138 points away from earning a free month of Goodies. This is after only one month so that seems pretty good, maybe in another month or two I will have earned a free month ?
The value of this box is great for $7, it is less than you would pay for these items at the store and I enjoyed them all. Would recommend this subscription to anyone if you get a chance to try it !
