August 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


Smooch fruit pouch. Value = $1.99

Morning Sunshine Breakfast Cookie. Value = $2.08 - This was pretty good but it was kind of dry. I could taste the coffee though and I thought it had the right amount. 

(3) Wild Friends Nut Butter. Value = $1.00/ea. 

Miraculous Mixes Brown Sugar Blondie Mix. Value = $8.99

Plated gift card. Value $52.00-$58.00 - you have to spend $6.99 shipping but it's still a good deal. 

The total approximate value of this Yumvelope is $16.06 or $68.06 with the gift card. I was super excited to see the gift card in the box because I've been wanting to try plated. I've been looking for a replacement for pop-up pantry and fresh dish. The wild friends nut butters look yummy. I really want to try the cinnamon raisin one on some raisin bread. Overkill? maybe, but I don't care. 

Verdict: Great box of fun snacks.
