Cravebox Knorr Ultimate Thanksgiving Box

Cravebox has changed they way they send out their boxes.  They no longer offer a subscription service and limited edition boxes.  Now they just offer Craveboxes and this is how it works.  If you sign up for on their website to be notified when a box becomes available they will send you an email.  You submit your entry and if picked they send you out a box.  They will tell you the price of the box in advance but you don't get to know what's in the box, just the theme of the box. 

This box offered is the Knorr Ultimate Thanksgiving Box and they price was $14.00.  This box came before Thanksgiving, (although I personally had to work so that wasn't such a big deal for me) I'm just late on posting this. 

The good: 

Themed Boxes: While you don't know what exactly is coming in your box you know the general theme and the price it will be.  

The price: I don't think  I've ever paid more than $14.00 and the value (with the exception of 1 box) was always great.  

The not so good: 

I can't think of anything. 

Look at all these goodies.  I was super excited about this box. Also note everything in this box is full sized!

Contents of box with retail price listed: **Note all products are full size

Del Monte Favorite Recipes cookbook. Value = $3.00

Knorr 4 pack Homestyle Reduced Sodium Chicken Stock. Value = $3.99

Free Can of Pillsbury Grands. Value = $2.65

2 cans of Del Monte Whole Green Beans. Value = $1.99

2 packets of McCormick's Turkey Gravy Mix. Value = $1.69

7 oz. bag Brookside smooth dark chocolate covered pomegranates. Value = $3.99 - These are really good but of course I love almost anything dark chocolate. 

1 tub of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations. Value = $2.89

1 packet of frosting creations starter. Value = $0.99

$35 voucher for Folded Words by Walgreens. Can be used toward gift cards, tags, stationary, etc. - I ended up ordering some really cute personalized stationary for Christmas gifts.  

The total value of the Cooking Light box is $56.19.  The only thing I wasn't too exited about was the canned green beans only because I don't like canned green beans.  I've been wanting to try the frosting mix because I keep seeing advertising for it and I wanted to know what's so special about it.  The chicken stock will come in handy for all the holiday cooking coming up.  The voucher is also super cool especially since you can use it on things other than cards.  This is a great box! 
Verdict: Craveboxes are fun and filled with treasures.  

I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Cravebox.  I purchase these boxes myself.
