Yeah, I’m way behind. I’ve said it before, and here I am saying it again! Fortunately, though, the Goodies Box is getting better with arriving in a timely manner. June’s box arrived on the 27th of June and while it isn’t the biggest deal when the box arrives a day or two (and in some cases three or four!) days after the month is over, I like it when they get their act together and the box comes within the month it should arrive.
This month’s box seems to be all about snacking. There were six products in this month’s box, including a full-sized tube of STAX Que Rico Adobadas Chips, which I’ve already tried. These are pretty tasty. They remind me a lot of Pringles, not just because of the nature of the packaging, but the chips themselves have the same texture and potato taste as Pringles snack chips. That said, the flavoring of these chips is pretty unique, tasting like a cross between a spicy BBQ and a picante salsa flavor. These definitely have some kick to them!
The Cheese flavored Pringles Sticks were also tasty. These remind me a lot of “Cheese It” type crackers, except that they’re long, very slender sticks rather than square crackers. They’re crunchy, cheesy, and a lot of fun to eat.
The other three products in June’s box include: a sampler package of Duchy Originals Highland Shortbread cookies, Cheddar Jalapeno Pasta Chips from Pastitas, a bottle of “Dream Water,” and Honey Dijon Roasted Seaweed Snacks from Gimme. That last one is one that makes me a little nervous, because I am not a fan of seaweed. I’ll try ’em, but I have a feeling I won’t be finishing ’em. I guess we’ll see!
I can’t say that I’m overly enthused by the contents of this month’s box, although I am interested in trying the Pastitas chips because of their uniqueness factor, and the Dream Water holds some appeal as well.
One thing that I am a little disappointed with is that Goodies has stopped including a product card with their box. Instead, we get a card that says:
For details about your Taster’s Box and to review or buy, visit http://www.goodies.co/box
This card also includes a promo code for those who want to subscribe without a waiting list. (So if you want to subscribe without the waiting list – I wasn’t aware that there was a waiting list! – just be the first to comment on this review, include your email address, and I’ll email you with the promo code.
But I preferred getting the product card that told me a little bit about each product. This new card gives the box a much more “generic” sort of feel.
It’s still the best “bargain” tasting box that I’ve found … even if the products aren’t as gourmet as what I’d find with some of the other subscriptions I’ve tried.
