May Tasterie Box - Signature Box

I can't remember where I heard of Tasterie but wherever it was had a 50% off deal so I thought oh what the heck I'll give it a try.

There is the signature box which is $25.00 a month with shipping included. The signature box has 6-8 healthy and safe foods as well as something to satisfy the sweet tooth. The snack box is $18.00 with shipping included and is packed with 6-8 yummy grab & go goodies. If you have a food allergy they have tons of options for you.

The good:

Food Allergy: There is bound to be a box for you with tasterie.

Skip: You can skip a month but you have to call or email.

Need a gift: You can gift a box to anyone.

The not so good:

Nothing really stood out.

I ordered the signature box. Since this is my first box I don't know if this is normal but two boxes were taped together.

My two boxes opened up

Here are all my Tasterie treasures.

Close up of the cashew fruit bar. I find that bars like this usually don't taste good but I'm willing to try it.

Contents of the Tasterie box with approximate retail value/price:

.5 oz. Angies Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn. Value = $1.00

FULL SIZE box box with 5 Udi's Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Granola Bars. Value = $5.50

1.5 oz. Beanfield Snacks Pico De Gallo Rice & Bean Chips. Value = $1.00

Awesome Foods Cashew & Super Fruit Bar. Value = $2.48

1.7 oz. Eden brown rice chips. Value = $4.40 - I can taste the faintest hint of seaweed but otherwise not much flavor.

1.3 oz. Rice Works brown rice crisps sea salt flavored. Value = $1.00??

FULL SIZE bag Bob's RedMill Ancient Millet. Value = $2.89

FULL SIZE bag Bob's RedMill Old Country style Muesli. Value = $4.39

The total approximate value of this box is $22.66. Since I only paid $10 it's a great value but regular price is $25.00 so it's about even. The boyfriend frequently eats all the chips and popcorn that we get in our boxes. I was excited to get the millet because I discovered that's something I can eat on the Fast Metabolism Diet. I can't believe of all the foods I've eaten I've never tried Muesli. The package says you can eat it hot or cold. The cashew bar looks interesting and like it has a lot going on in it. I liked this box and for a lot of people this may be items that aren't readily available at your local store. I have a Sprouts near my house which is where I do 75% of my grocery shopping and I see a lot of these items there. The nice thing is I can try these items and if I like them then I can buy more.

Verdict: I enjoyed this box. Can't wait to see what comes next month.
