June Yumvelope

Yumvelope is a subscription service centered around food and snacks.  Each month you will 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 rate of $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 confirmed this is an extra month - so you get 7 months for the price of 6). The Yumvelope promises to send 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.

This subscription is available is the US only and ships from Illinois. 

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

Contents of box with approximate retail value/price listed.  

Dave's Midnight Cookie in Ginger Molasses. Value = $1.99 - This smelled delicious but was a little dry.

Dave's Midnight Cookie in Lemon Coconut. Value = $1.99 - Now this cookie was freakin delicious! The coconut made it moist and the lemon made it delicious. Great combo of flavors.

Eat Green Tea Edible Green Tea. Value = $25.00

Teeccino Dandelion Dark Roast. Value = $0.60

Teeccino Dandelion Caramel Nut. Value = $0.60

Teechia Blueberry Date cereal. Value = $3.50

Teechia Cinnamon Cranberry. Value = $3.50

1.25 oz. bag The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World. Value = $1.79 - These were tasty but I wouldn't say they were anywhere near the best chocolate chip cookie in the world.

The total approximate value of this Yumvelope is $38.97. This is the highest value I've seen and it has some fun products in it. I love green tea so this edible green tea is right up my alley. My favorite Starbucks and Jamba Juice drinks are the green tea ones.  The Teechia product I'm not too sure about. It has quinoa and chia in it which are not my favorite things. I recommends adding milk, yogurt or other non-dairy to it of which I have none so I haven't been able to try it yet. 

Verdict: I went ahead and renewed for another year. The send some fun and interesting products.
