March Goodies Co. box

Goodies Co. is a monthly subscription that sends out 5-8 trial sized food products for $7 a month w/shipping included.  Yep just $7 for this tasty little box!  The other thing about Goodies Co is they are a Wal-Mart brand. Right now you have to sign up to be on the invite list to get a box. I don't think it takes too long to receive an invite though.     

The good:

Price: $7 is a very reasonable price to pay for a box of snacks to try.

Points: If you write a quick review on their website you can earn points for rewards.  It takes 300 points to earn a free box.   

Information: On the information card they have started including the price of the items which is great for my blog.  It's also helpful to have that information handy just for general knowledge.  

Want more: You can log onto their website and purchase the things you enjoyed from your box.  

Skip: You can put your account on pause for up to 3 months at a time. You can do it online and it's super easy.

The not so good:

It's all good!

The theme of this box is Rise and Shine.

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

1 Rip van Waffles Stroopwafles. Value = $1.33

1 oz. Ola! No Nut Vanilla Granola. Value = $0.67 - I'm overloaded with granola but I started mixing it in my oatmeal and it add a nice texture.

1 Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Coated Granola Bar. Value = $1.30

1 pk BelVita Cinnamon Brown Sugar Breakfast Biscuits. Value = $0.80 - I really enjoy these little biscuits. 

1 oz. Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves. Value = $0.38 - I just bought the fig preserves and it is sooooo good.  I've had the strawberry before and it's good but not outstanding.

1 oz. Erin Baker's Breakfast Cookie. Value = $0.43 - I liked this.  It's only a 100 calories which is nice and complimented my oatmeal well.

1 pk Jovan's All Natural Instant Breakfast. Value = $1.60

2 pack Nabisco Triple Berry. Value = $0.75

The total value of my Goodies Co. Box is $7.26.  I really enjoyed this box.  It was full of items that will definitely get eaten. Not all of the items were new to me but that's ok because they are items I liked. I think this box is such a great value at $7. I have a snack container that I leave on the island in the kitchen and it's nice to be able to reach in there and grab a little something to go.

Verdict: This box is great and the price is right.  


  1. We almost got the same thing. I am jealous you got the Rip cookie though! I got Aloe juice instead. I love those little waffles. I had one when I was in Amsterdam and I am soo addicted! I ask my friend in the UK to send them over all the time! [I been told certain Starbucks carry them but I rather like the "legit" ones :) ]

    And you also got the "better" Breakfast cookie!

    1. Oh, that cookie is soooo good! I've had them once before but I don't remember where. I'll have to check my local Starbucks for them or try and find them at World Market. I'll behonet I've had aloe juice and was not a fan.

  2. It probably something new but I was able to pause my sub for 2 months with my Goodies box! A couple of weeks ago!

    1. Thanks for the info. I updated the post. So glad this option is available.
