August Goodies Co. - Taster's Box

Goodies Co. is a monthly subscription that sends out 5-8 trial sized food products for $7 a month w/shipping included.  Yep just $7 for this tasty little box!  Goodies Co. is a Wal-Mart brand which to me means these products should be readily available should you want more.

The good:

Price: $7 is a very reasonable price to pay for a box of snacks to try.

Points: If you write a quick review on their website you can earn points for rewards.  It takes 300 points to earn a free box.   

Want more: You can log onto their website and purchase the things you enjoyed from your box.  

Skip: You can put your account on pause for up to 3 months at a time. You can do it online and it's super easy.

The not so good:

Information: They used to include an information card with the product name and price but they stopped doing that. Not a big deal really but I miss it.

August Goodies Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

.5 oz. Tangy Zangy Twisties in Sour Wild Berry. Value = $0.30

Sample bag of Poplets toasted corn centers. Value = $0.30 - These are good but I like the halfpops more.

Pronto Southern Pecan Liquid Coffee Brewstick. Value = $1.00

Hershey's Cookie Mix. Value = $2.28

Nature Valley Granola Thins. Value = $0.30 - The chocolate on these was a nice surprise.

Mott's Medley's Fruit Snacks. = Value = $0.30

Fiber One 90 Calories Chocolate Fudge Brownie Bar. Value = $0.50 - These are delicious! I discovered these several months ago and they never get old. The lemon ones are fantastic!

The total approximate value of my Goodies Co. Box is $4.55. This value is even lower than last month! I really like the items in these boxes but I'm getting a little annoyed at the low value. I don't make cookies usually because the last thing I need is a plate of cookies but I these look pretty tasty. The boyfriend always eats the fruit snacks that come in our boxes so these are cool. I keep meaning to take the brewstick to work with me but I keep forgetting. I'm hopeful about it, I hope it's good. 

Verdict: I like the items in this box but I wish it had at least one more item in it to bump up the value. 


  1. I was happy [well mostly] with the box until I saw it was such a low value :(

  2. My box was totally different, I wish I had yours! I had the poplets and the twisters but had veggie chips (eh), sunflower seeds amd healthy eye water.

  3. what the heck is healthy eye water? Now I'm intriqued...
