This is my first ever box from Blissmo. I am not sure if this is a “Best of” or “Introductory” box. I was able to skip the month of August very easily online. I only skipped because I had just ordered this box.
You can get your own Blissmo Box here. You are able to choose what type of box you would like each month-usually between food and beauty, but sometimes there is a third choice. The price is $19.95 per month, plus $4.95 shipping. If you subscribe for 6 months, you get free shipping. You can get a 1 time Blissmo Bites 2 pack for only $29.95 with free shipping if you want to try the box out.
Boulder Canyon Natural Foods Kettle Cooked Potato Chips. I like Kettle cooked chips, and normally purchase the Cape Cod brand (since I live in the North East). I have seen this brand in my natural food section, however, and I am excited to try them. I love that Boulder Canyon purchases green energy credits. My family also purchases energy from a green supplier. We pay extra, but I feel really good about putting my money where my mouth is-so to speak. This 2 oz bag is 2 servings, and a generous sample size. Value is about $2. Boulder Canyon is having a facebook giveaway where you can enter to win a month’s supply of boulder canyon and an awesome lunchpack. Enter here.
From Left to right TWO DEGREES bar ($2 value available on amazon), Van’s Cranberry Almond Bar Gluten Free ($1.20 Value), Graw Bar ($2.50 Value), Ginny Bakes Cookie 2 pack ($2 Value with free shipping on Amazon).
Lydia’s Organics Kale Krunchies in Mega Green. These were one of the surprise products in the box for me. When I first saw that the only full size item in the box was something green, I was immediately reminded of the seaweed from my Love With Food box in June. I like my kale Russian, with some bacon (or at least Olive Oil) and wine.
I had to admit, they were beautiful. I hesitantly brought one leaf to my lips and closed my eyes. Then, I had a few more just to make sure! It wasn’t bad-I really like the spice combination. These are good for me? I am going to look for these at my local health food store-but online, the prices range from $8-$12 for one bag of these Kale Krunchies. Visit Lydia’s Organics website to locate a bag for yourself.
“Pease porridge hot, Pease porridge cold, Pease porridge in a pot, Nine days old”-English Folksong. Couldn’t help myself. Earth’s Supergrains porridge is a mixture of oats, other whole grains and seeds. This is a 62 g sample ($2 value). I can’t wait to try it tomorrow morning! You can purchase through their website online, and get free shipping when you purchase 3 bags. There is also a Raw Rev 100 Cherry bar. These bars are orgain, gluten free, kosher and more. Raw Rev is also made in NY-and only 100 calories ($.75 value).
This was the other surprise for me today-Halfpops, 2 oz ($1.5 value). I haven’t had a corn-nut in 15 years, but these reminded me so much of corn nuts. Except, where corn nuts were chip-your-teeth hard, Halfpops are just satisfyingly crunchy. They aren’t very healthy-this is an indulgence. You can order these directly from Halfpop if don’t live in the west or NYC ( where you can purchase them in store). Right now, you can purchase sixteen 2 oz bags for $23 and get free shipping. I am going to see if my husband and daughters like them first, though. If I had 16 bags to myself, I’d be in trouble!
The total value of this box was about $23, which is right in line with the cost of the box. With some boxes, I am interested in the monetary value, and with others, the curation is more important to me. In this case, when I consider that I can’t obtain most of these products without paying shipping for each one separately-there is a monetary savings. But, I would never have known about several of these products if it wasn’t for Blissmo. So far my impression of Blissmo is positive. I feel that the box was well curated, and I received a nice mixture of products.
