I was really surprised when the mail carrier knocked on the door … I wasn’t expecting anything. I had just received my notification that my box had shipped a day or two ago, so I wasn’t expecting my Goodies box until a little closer to the end of the month.
But this was a happy surprise, and especially welcome given the evening that I had last night, and the day that I’ve been having today. Last week, my husband had come down with a bad cold (maybe it was the flu?) and he had to miss a couple of days of work. Anyone who knows my hubby knows that he just doesn’t miss work. He has to be really sick to miss it. Otherwise, he drags himself in there. That’s just the kind of guy he is. So when he needs to call in sick … you know he’s sick.
Fortunately, it wasn’t a long-lasting bug … he was feeling down and out for a couple of days, but he was able to head back to work after only missing a couple of days. And after a few more days had come and gone, I thought that maybe I was in the clear and I wasn’t going to come down with whatever he caught.
Yeah… no. It didn’t happen that way.
At some point late at night I started feeling really sick … hot one minute, freezing the next, and every time I’d swallow it felt like I was swallowing razor blades. Achy everywhere. In short … not feeling good. This just hasn’t been my month! First a sprained ankle, now some flu or cold bug. I guess we can’t be 100% … 100% of the time.
So, it was a nice surprise to have my box arrive today … even though I don’t have the taste buds to really enjoy anything (I’ll be saving these goodies until after I’m feeling better), it was nice to get a lovely box of goodies!
The “theme” card of this box reads “Trick or Treat” which suggests that there are all kind of indulgent goodies in the box. (I guess the fact that it’s called a “Goodies Box” might also lead one to assume that the box is filled with goodies too!), and really, that’s what’s in here. Most of these goodies are ones I haven’t yet tried! I like that, because I love trying something new. Who knows … I might just find a new favorite!
Tucked inside this month’s box are Toasted Coconut Chips from Dang, a Mayesa drink box (it appears to be a chocolate-y drink), Cinnamon Brown Sugar Smartfood Selects, Juicefuls, Nutella & Go, and a bag of Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle. YUM! Again, a box brimming full of yummy goodies for just $7. I am not sure how Goodies Co. does it!
I’ve tried Nutella before, and I do enjoy it, although I must tell you that I’ve discovered a better product (Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter) so I guess this is probably the only product I’m not super-excited about. But I’ll still enjoy it!
As I said before, I’m not going to start digging in to this box until I’m feeling better, I can’t really write a review on these foods with my tongue feeling as though it’s covered in a blanket and only about 1/4 of the flavor getting through. I want to have my taste buds in full working order to taste these!
Another fun box!
