November Yumvelope

Yumvelope is a food/snack monthly subscription service.  Each month you receive a large USPS envelope filled with goodies.  The cost for this service is $21 plus $3.00 shipping or you can sign up for a month for a flat $21.00.  If you like what you get then you can sign up for 6 months for $126.00 w/shipping included and a bonus shipment (I'm guess that means an extra month free).  With your payment they promise to all natural hand picked delicious items in each envelope.    

The good:

Variety: There is a good variety of items.  A couple of the products I received I've tried before and like so I was glad I received them.  

Discounts: The try and send a promo code for each product so you can order your favorite products at a discounted price.  

Size: They send full size products which is always nice.  

The not so good:

Value vs. Price: This seems to fluctuate from month to month.  Lately it's been in the higher range. 

Contents of box with retail price listed.  

8 oz. bag Allgood Organic Pacific Northwest Cranberries. Value = $13.00 - these are so yummy, the perfect amount of tartness. 

.8 oz. bag Margherita Pizza flavor Plentils. Value = $0.99 - I really wanted to try these but the boyfriend got to it first. 

4 oz. bag of the Good Life Granola. Value = $3.00

1 Kate's Tiki Bar in Coconut Mango. Value = $2.79

.75 oz. bag Sensible Foods Cherry Berry Crunch Dried Fruit. Value = $1.66

box of 12 individual packets of soy sauce is a fish shaped container. Value = $8.99

Bonus item for submitting a survey:

Earnest eats bar in cran lemon zest. Value = $1.75

The total value of this Yumvelope is $30.43 (not including the bonus item).  This is an incredible value.  I though the little soy sauce packets were awesome.  I can't tell you how many times they boyfriend asks for soy sauce to go with his lunch from home.  These will be perfect! The cranberry bag is huge and I know I will put those to goo use.  I enjoy mixing them in with my yogurt or oatmeal.  I'm a little overloaded with granola but it will get eaten.  I'm really liking the sensible foods item.  I really enjoyed their dried corn so I'm sure the berry will be delicious. 

Verdict:  I like the items in this box and they value was great!       

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Yumvelope.  I purchase these monthly subscriptions myself.
