Coupon for free Suja Juice. Value = up to $9.05
The total value of this months box is $26.65. The value is great provided I can find the yogurt and Suja juice. These may be items that aren't available at conventional grocery stores. I love the way the Mrs. Meyers soap smells and it works well also. It's something I would definitely buy again. I liked the seaweed chips which I've also received in another box but they weren't spicy. I'm not a super spicy fan so I hope these don't set my mouth on fire. I hope I can find the yogurt and the juice in one of the stores I shop at. I just have to know what makes Suja a $9 juice drink. I'm really curious about the cornbread crackers. I love cornbread, I mean really love it. I could live off of cornbread. I'm really hoping those crackers don't let me down.
Verdict: I think this box has some fun stuff to try and even though the value is lower than the price paid I think it's still a good deal.
