July Taste for Sweets

A long while back a reader named Kayla suggested I give this subscription a try. I looked it up and it sounded good to me so I signed up. What took so long to post this? Well I'm glad you asked. I had found a coupon code (GIFT25OFF) that got me a 3 month subscription for $36. The normal price is $16 a month so it saved me $12. I thought 3 months would be a fair amount of time to evaluate the subscription.

This posting is late because a whole bunch of confusion with my subscription. Somehow I ended up with two subscriptions, the gift one and a regular one and was being charged $16 a month. I was only getting one box so I'm not sure what happened. It took a couple of emails and a Facebook message to get the company to respond but hopefully it's all figured out now. I'm a little worried though because I'm hearing rumors that they are going out of business.

Price: $16.00 a month with no option to skip. Discount for pre-paid yearly plan at $168.00.

The good: 

Foreign snacks: if you like snacks from other parts of the world then this is great.

The not so good:

Price: The price is a little high but these items aren't not easy to find.


July Taste for Sweets

I'm not going to try and finds prices of all these items because that would take a lot of time and effort. I'm pretty positive it wouldn't add up to $16 but it was fun trying all the new treats. If this were a few dollars cheap I might consider it. One a side note it's worth mentioning that I was expecting the muesli bar to be dry and not good but it was great. I would totally buy it again.

I should have at least 4 more of these boxes that I've paid for coming so we will see what happens. August should be here shortly - can't wait.

Verdict: I thought this box was great I just wish it were in the $10-$12 range.

    1. No I haven't. I sent an email to them last week because I'm missing 4 boxes that I've paid for. I noticed their Facebook and Twitter pages no longer exist. I'm starting to think I've been hoodwinked!
