September 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

September Yumvelope.
Maddie thought this was her BarkBox so she stared at me waiting for a treat from the box. 

Contents of box with approximate retail value. 

Caveman Cookies in Alpine. Value = $5.70 - These are soft and kinda weird but also somewhat addicting. 

Frontier Soups Enchilada Soup Mix. Value = $6.00

Crum Creek's Mini Breadsticks. Value = $1.00??

Two Moon Rosemary and Sea Salt Shortbread Cookie. Value $1.75?? - Holy smokes these are fantastic!

Crum Creek Soy Nut Mix. Value = $0.89

Carman's Apricot & Almond Granola Muesli Bar. Value = $1.14

The total approximate value of this Yumvelope is $16.48. This is an ok value but I did think there were some great products in here. Those Two Moon Shortbread Cookies were amazing. Thank goodness there were only two because I couldn't eaten a whole box. I looked online and you can get a 8 of them for $7.00 but the shipping is $8 on top of that. Oh well. The Caveman cookies are interesting. I really don't know how to explain them. Crum Creek? eh, they are ok. The Muesli bar looks tasty and feels soft and from whaty I can tell it's from Australia. That's pretty cool. I'm exciting to make the enchilada soup, it's getting to be soup and crockpot season!

Verdict: The two moon cookies were the winner in this box! It make the little price difference totally worth it!
