April Blissmo Box - Almost Spring Snack box

The Blissmo box is a monthly subscription service geared toward organic & eco friendly products that are described as safer and better for you.  Each month they offer different boxes to choose from which vary based on themes or seasons. They offer various pricing for monthly 6 months subscriptions.  The base price is always $19.95 but for monthly subscriptions add $4.95 shipping ($24.90 a month) and for 6 months subscriptions the price is $19.95 with free shipping. You have to pay in full and the total would be $119.70.  The company advertises that you will receive between $19-$40 worth of items in each box.

Each month they send you an email with a choice of 2-3 boxes to pick from. My suggestion is to pick early because a couple of times they have ran out of the box I want. This month they had 3 choices (snacks, beauty and immunity) and I went with the Almost Spring Snacks box. 

This subscription is available in the US only.

The good:

Like trying new things but not sure what to try? This is a good way to start trying new products without being overwhelmed or spending a bunch of money. 

Variety: They offer a selection of 2-3 different themed boxes. 

Pricing: It's not too bad for what you get. Most of the boxes are over the paid price and offer some really cool stuff. 

Information: They include a card with information about the company and their products.  Also on the card they list the value of each item received, I really appreciate this. 

Skip a month? Yes, now you can skip a month and you won't be charged. 

The not so good: 

Limited number of boxes: Sometimes they sell out 

Blissmo Almost Spring Snack Box

Contents of box with retail price listed:

.9 oz. Organic Surf Sweets Jelly Beans. Value = $0.72

Rip van Wafels Traditional Amsterdam Wafel. Value = $1.56

1.8 oz. Kopali Organic Mango. Value = $3.99

2 oz. Kopali Organic Dark Chocolate Covered Mulberries. Value = $3.99 - I could eat these all day long. 

2 oz. Oren's Kitchen Wild Rosemary Almonds. Value = $3.99

2 Degrees Cherry Almond Bar. Value = $1.99

2 Degrees Apple Pecan Bar. Value = $1.99

The total value of my box is $18.23. I've tried a lot of the items that this box had but fortunately I like most of it.  The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the 2 Degrees bars. I tried them a while back and didn't care for them. I noticed these look a little different though. I'm hoping it's a new recipe and not just new packaging. All the other items are perfect for the snack box.

Verdict: Blissmo box has a wide variety to choose from and if you don't see something you like just skip. I decided to cancel this subscription for now. I'm looking to try something new.
