July 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. This breaks down to $18 a month). 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

June Yumvelope

Contents of box with approximate retail value/price listed.  

Bearded Brothers Energy Bar in Bodacious Blueberry Vanilla. Value = $3.00 - Kind of dry.

Bearded Brothers Energy Bar in Fabulous Ginger Peach. Value = $3.00

(2)WOW Baking Co. Lemon Burst Cookie. Value = $2.48/ea. - These are some of the best cookies I have ever had. I received them in another box months ago and was super excited to see not one but two in this box.

Crunchies Roasted Veggies. Value = $4.99 - These were ok, a little dry. The boyfriend said they were dumb. 

Marshall's Farm Honey Straws 9 pk. Value = $4.50

Marshall's Farm Honey Bear. Value = $3.70

The total approximate value of this Yumvelope is $24.15. I love, love, love the lemon cookies. They are dense and super soft and delicious! The energy bar is ok but like a lot of health food stuff it's kind of dry. They have some nuts and what not that are good for you so I'll eat them eventually. I thought the roasted veggies were ok but they would probably be better mixed with something, I just don't know what. I love the honey straws they are fun to eat on their own for a nice light sweet treat.

Verdict: Great box of fun snacks.
