Zatarain's Big Game Cravebox

Cravebox isn't a monthly subscription service they just send of boxes of really cool stuff if you are lucky enough to get picked.  Here's how it works.  Sign up on their website to be notified when a box becomes available they will send you an email telling you the drawing is open and what the price of the box will be.  If you choose to enter you will get an email about a week later telling you if you've been chosen or not.  They don't tell you what's in the box, just the theme of the box.   

This box offered is the Zatarain's Big Game Cravebox.  he price of this box was $15.00. I had entered the drawing and a few days later I received an email saying not only was I chosen to receive the box I got doubled for nothing meaning I was going to get a party sized box for free.  So instead of getting one of everything I got two of everything!  This worked out perfect since I'm having a Super Bowl Sunday Fun Day

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.  It ranges from $10-$18 but they always tell you what it will be before you enter.  I've only had one box come in under the price paid.  

Referral program: If someone lists your user name as a referral you earn points which may get you a free box.  Also it's retroactive meaning you can add someones user name even if you signed up months ago.  I wish it were clickable link but it's very cool none the less. My user name is pixiepower. 

The not so good: 

I can't think of anything.

Recipes using the products.  
The total value of the Zatarain's Box is $32.50.  I think this is a great value but only because I received 2 of everything.  If I wouldn't received the normal sized box it wouldn't been $16.25 which is probably the same or a little more than I would pay at my local grocery store.  There isn't anything in here I won't use except maybe the beads because I have a box full of them from Mardi Gras several years ago.  (I got them from the floats, I swear!).       

Verdict: This was a great box for me because I'm going to use it for my Super Bowl Party

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


  1. My box still hasn'n come yet. The USPS tracking said it was missent. So I contacted cravebox and said that I wouldn't get it before the big game, and they decided to completely refund my box. How awesome is that!

    1. Bummer that your box was misrouted. Cravebox has always had excellent customer service, that's so cool that they refunded the price of the box.
