I hadn't ever heard of this subscription box until I received an email about a promotion they were having. This is a $19.99 subscription box, but they were offering a special discount for $6.99 plus two free gifts! I figured, why not give it a try?
It came in a HUGE heavy box! Inside it was wrapped with a cute little sticker, and everything even moderately breakable was packaged in bubble wrap. I was immediately impressed.
I thought I'd show the two sweet little extra gifts they sent me first...
You can't tell as much in this picture, but this is a quite large bag of mini cow tales!
They also sent me a bag of Haribo sour gummy bears. I am not a big Haribo fan, but these seem similar to Sour Patch Kids, which I love, so maybe they will be good! I can't really complain too much anyway since they were a free gift with the box! And candy! Perfect for Halloween.
Now let's get into the actual products in the box. It came with nine different things, but a few of products came in multiples!
The first thing I pulled out, fully bubble wrapped, was this Sharwood's Tikka Masala sauce. It is a Indian simmer sauce. I have heard about Tikka Masala sauce many times on food network, but never tried or attempted to make it before. Pretty excited! This is valued at $4.99.
This is Brianna's Home Style Poppy Seed Dressing, and is made to be used as a traditional salad dressing, or as the main dressing for coleslaw, fruit, potato, tuna, and chicken salads. It sounds like a nice tangy sweet dressing and I'm excited to try it! This bottle is valued at $3.99.
I got these Chef's Cut Buffalo Style Chicken Jerky in a Love With Food box once as well! I am not a fan of jerky so I've given them to the men in my family, and my dad says it is really good stuff! This bag is valued at $5.99.
I've seen these Beanitos White Bean Chips featured in a few different subscription boxes recently, but I hadn't ever tried them before. These are in the flavors Nacho Cheese and Hint of Lime. I'm not a lime fan, but these remind me of Doritos. These are valued at $1 each, and it came with a coupon for a free full sized bag as well!
I wish I had good things to say about this, but honestly this non-alcoholic Ginger Beer is probably one of the worst products I've gotten in a subscription box to date... It was so yucky!! These are valued at $1.50 each.
These are NibMor dark chocolate bars, one with blueberry filling and the other with cherry! They are both full sized chocolate bars, made with read fruit, and they sound amazing! These are valued at $1.39 each.
These Basil and Garlic Olives were an odd little addition to the box I felt like. But then again, I'm not a fan of green olives... So I will probably end up giving these to my mom! These are valued at $1.49, and also come in the flavors Lemon and Rosemary, Chili and Garlic, and Chili and Oregano.
I felt like these Honees Honey Lemon cough drops were an even more odd addition to the box! All kinds of food, snacks, and cooking ingredients... and then cough drops? I mean, I guess it is useful to have! These are valued at $2.75.
I somehow forgot to take a picture of this during the original shoot, but I made sure to take one when I used it tonight! This is "Ponti Glaze with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena," and is described as a dressing, but is basically a balsamic glaze which can be used on basically anything! This bottle is valued at $5.99.
Tonight I made honey bacon glazed chicken with balsamic vegetables and it was pretty amazing! I'd definitely use and make it again!
The papers that came with this pox included a two recipe ingredient card for the Tikka Masala sauce, a recipe for the Brianna's dressing, and a coupon for the Beanitos chips!
This is probably one of the weirdest boxes I've ever gotten honestly... It was multiple different ingredients for meals, none of which went together, and cough drops? It was odd, but that's not to say I don't like it! It was a really good value, and come with a few exciting things to try! The total value of this box, not counting the two free gifts or the coupon for a free bag of chips, is $34.98! Thats pretty amazing for a $20 box that I payed $7 for!
