February Yumvelope

Yumvelope is a subscription service centered around food and snacks.  Each month you receive a large USPS envelope filled with yummy goodies.  The cost for this service is $21 plus $3.00 shipping or you can sign up for a month to month subscription 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.  Yumvelope has also started a meal donation program for each envelope purchased, and you know I'm a big fan of that. 

They have also recently changed the format of the info card that they send.  It now has the product name, three adjectives that they feel describe the product, the price and the website to re-order.  I really like this new format.   

The good:

Variety: There is a good variety of items.  

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 or close to full size products which is always nice.  

Meal donation: For every Yumvelope shipped they donate a meal.  

The not so good:

Skip: No option to skip a month

Yumvelope Treasures! 

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed.  

1.7 oz. NUNU Chocolates dark chocolate and soft caramel chocolate bar. Value = $5.00

Barre Bar, pirouette cinnamon pecan bar. Value = $2.50

Morning Sunshine handmade really healthy satisfying all natural cookie. Value = $2-$3 per cookie. - This was a little dry, probably would be ok with coffee.

(3) Stash Tea, green tea, chamomile nights herbal tea, organic merrymint green tea, Value = $0.35/ea.

Kika's Treats Salted Crunchy Caramels. Value = $6.50 - I managed to sneak one of these and it was so good.  The caramel is semi-soft but the salty has the perfect crunch.

Garuka Bars, raw honey primal energy bar. Value = $3.00 - This was delicious! It's the perfect combo of honey, peanut butter and oats.   

The total value of this Yumvelope is $20.05-$21.05.  I can't wait to dive into this box!  I have to pace myself though for fear of a sweetness sickness.  The chocolate bar and caramels sound absolutely amazing!  I heard the boyfriend diving into the caramels last night and I told him he had better not eat them all.  There had better be at least one for me to try or I'm gonna start hiding the goodies!  I've received the Barre Bars before but in different  packaging, wonder if they are changing it.  The cookie crumbled a little bit but it feels soft and looks good.

Verdict: I've really been enjoying my Yumvelopes, I'm going to keep this subscription going. 

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