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.

Sizes: They send mostly full size items!

The not so good:

Value: ** Values aren't outstanding but you get the try some really interesting products. I'm ok with this but if you end up not eating or using some of the product it will be a loss.

                                                            This box was full of food!

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

5 oz. bag Better Balance Crispy Parmesan Protein Chips. Value = $3.59

1.5 oz. bag Food Should Taste Good Blue Corn Chips. Value = $1.07 - We have received these before and I like them. The boyfriend likes them also but gets irritated that the bag is barely full. He actually counted the chips this time and there were about 11.

(3) Cocomama Quinoa Cereal. Value = $3.50/ea.

1 oz. pkg. Matt's Munchies Island Mango fruit snack. Value = $2.00 - I liked this but it was also in last months box. I don't think they should send the same thing that close together. 

2 oz. Sunfood Organic Goji Berries. Value = $3.99

2 oz. Biena Chickpea Snacks. Value = $2.99

.6 oz. Goldbaum's Pop potato. Value = $0.64 - I liked these. They were thick and not greasy. I would like to try the other flavors. 

The total approximate value of this box is $24.78.  For me the value is $14.28 because I can't stand the cocomama quinoa cereal. Of course that's not the companies fault though. Other than the cocomama I thought this was a great box. I'm getting used to the goji berries and they are definitely better mixed with something as opposed to eating them plain. I like the mango fruit snacks for sure, they are so fun to eat. I haven't tried the protein chips yet. The word protein in the title makes them sounds not good to me so we will see. 

Verdict: If this didn't have to cocomama stuff products it would've been a fantastic box! If anyone likes and wants the cocomama cereal email at pixiepowered@hotmail.com and I'll gladly mail it to you. I hate to see it go to waste. *****Yay, the Cocomama is going to a good home. I'm sending it to the first person who emailed me (Lyn). I'm going to keep the other emails I received though just in case I get more.*****

  1. If you have a "Jack's .99 cents" [They have stuff higher priced too] store around you, they sell Food Should Taste Good at a huge discount. I got a really big bag for $2.
