September Cravebox Tasty Favorites

Cravebox is a monthly subscription service that consistently send great products.  Each Cravebox is $10 a month with shipping included.  Each months box is a different theme.  They also have limited edition boxes they send out a few times a year with different themes.  Those boxes are limited to 1500 and are separate from the subscription boxes.  You can sign up to be notified when the limited edition boxes raffle is happening and make a one time purchase of that box.  On all boxes they don't tell you how many products you will receive just that it will be a mixture of everything from food to beauty to home and everything in between.  This month's theme for the subscription box is Tasty Favorites.   

The good:

The price: $10 a month is a totally reasonable price for treasures!  

Variety: You get a variety of items so there is a little something for everyone...that is is you wish to share your treasures.  Also these are products you can find easily online or in the store. 

The not so good:

Wait list: No one likes to wait for treasures.  I can tell you though, it's totally worth the wait. 

Skip a month: There is no skipping if you don't want a box.  The only option is to cancel which I don't recommend unless you want to cancel for good.  If you want to sign up again you will be put back on the wait list.

Tasty Favorites!

Contents of the box with retail price listed. 

2 mini energy bars from Balance Bar.  Value = $0.90/ea. (box of 10 $8.99)

1 oz. bag of Soy Nut Trail Mix from Crum Creek. Value = $0.55 (10 packs $5.50)

7 oz. bag Purple Corn Tortilla Chips w/Sea Salt from Mystic Harvest. Value = $3.50 - I loved these.  They were thin and crispy and had a really good flavor. 

.8 oz. bag Plentils lentil chips in garlic Parmesan flavor from Enjoy Life. Value = $0.99 - These are good but I preferred the plain ones. 

2.65 oz. bag Werther's Original Caramel Apple Filled treats. Value = $1.25

The total value of this box is $8.09.  I was really surprised by this because usually their boxes greatly exceed the price paid not come in under.  It's almost like an item is missing from the box.  A lot of people complained about this box and have said they are canceling their subscriptions.  I also heard people complaining about getting "mini" Balance Bars complaining didn't even send "full size" bars.  This is actually a new product from Balance Bar and it's called a mini energy bar so it is considered full size.

Verdict: Even this box was a little disappointing usually the subscription boxes are awesome. 

*** I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Cravebox.  I pay for these subscriptions myself.
