Review: Goodie's Box.

I came across this subscription box several months ago by accident. I'm not even sure where I heard about it to be honest with you. It's was still in beta and they were only choosing a select number of people to buy into it in the beginning. For as cheap as it was, it seemed like a pretty good steal, so I jumped on the invitation and signed myself up. Three months later, I'm still loving what comes every month and it's definitely worth every penny.

Details: The Goodies Company is actually affiliated with Walmart and is something that they're working on to help bring better (specialty) products to their store. If you sign up for this box, consider yourself a guinea pig for what products they should and shouldn't carry. And for just $7 a month, I don't feel like a complete sell out to this giant. A week or so after you get your box, you get an email from the company asking you to write a review on their website including pictures and your feedback. This in turn earns you points, which then earns you free stuff including a month's box on the house. I personally haven't been too good about keeping up with this process, but I think it's great to earn freebies for speaking your mind :) 

Bonus: If you absolutely LOVE something that you've gotten in your box, you can sign onto the website and actually order it in a full size version and have it shipped to your house. This is great because it allows you to put it into one shopping cart and pay for everything all at once -- instead of getting a box and then having to source out each individual item on different websites. For me, this is a WIN!

November Box: This month's theme was 'Entertaining Made Easy' and I thought they did a pretty good job with this one for being a new concept. Oogie's White Cheddar Gourmet Popcorn, Alter Eco Quinoa Dark Chocolate bar, Bobby Sue's Nut, Bigelow Tea Pumpkin Spice, a fun little Flourless Bliss Souffle Mix, a small dose of Lotus Bakeries Smooth Biscoff Spread and some American Vintage Wine Biscuits in White Wine, Shallot and Cayenne flavor. Not to mention that they tossed in a nice canvas Goodies Co tote that I'm gonna rock at the farmer's market this summer.

December Box: The them for this month was 'Naughty & Nice' and I think it was pretty nicely done. I was thrilled to see a full size box of World Table Chocolate Caramel Cookie Thins. This alone made the box awesome! It also had 2 Sun Cups in Dark Chocolate Mint and Sunflower Butter Milk Chocoate (both nut and gluten free), an Effie's Homemade Oat Cake, Barefruit Cinnamon Apple Chips, a bag of Rocky Mountain Popcorn in Cinnamon Sugar, and some Eat Smart Naturals Veggie Chips.

January Box: The theme for the month was New Year, New You and was centered around giving you healthy snacking alternatives so you could stick to your resolutions to eat better on the go! The box included: Nature's Bakery Whole Wheat Fig Bar, Stretch Island Fruit Chews in Cherry, Go Nola in Maple Pecan, Flamous Falafel Chips (my favorite), Skeeter Snack Cookie in Skeeterdoodle, Cascal (all natural soda) and Wild Garden Traditional Hummus and Pita Chips to go box. The hummus/chips combo was a great concept and I wish there were more things like this. I was a little perplexed that it didn't need to be refrigerated though.

Final Thoughts: This box is by invitation only, so you better go over and 'request' an invite if you're interested before they max out their subscriptions! I'd say for only $7 bucks, it's worth every penny and the items they send are great for on-the-go or just a quick snack. Can't beat that!
