You may have noticed I didn’t review July’s box. There wasn’t anything wrong with July’s box, but it was sort of “meh” so I decided to skip it. Here’s Josh tasting the squeezy bag of oatmeal mush:
Anyhoo, August’s box totally made up for it! Here’s the box, just opened:
Do I spy a full sized bag of candy? Why, yes!
Hey KIND? You had me at “salted caramel”. I’ve had KIND bars before and always enjoy them, but I hadn’t seen this kind before. (Get it? Kind?) This is basically a granola bar, but it’s not too sweet, has a great texture, and 100% whole grains. I love alternative grains, and this bar has SIX: oats, sorghum, millet, amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat. I would definitely buy these again. Om nom nom!
Enlightened Roasted Broad Beans
Uh, roasted bean snacks? Tons of protein? HELL YES! These were seriously delicious and hit all my notes: salty, nutty, crunchy AND healthy. A nearly perfect snack! If I can’t find these at a local store, I plan on using my Love with Food points to buy some. I wanted to eat them so badly I barely remembered to take a pic!
Fruity Pie – Apricot and Almond
Go Organics Apple Hard Candies
479 Degrees Sea Salt Popcorn
Wild Friends Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter
*sigh* I wanted so much to love this. You could definitely taste the coconut and the chocolate, but dang it if it wasn’t grainy. There’s a reason I stick with my mainstay, Skippy. It was good, but just not for me.
La Panzanella Croccantini Artisan Italian Crackers – Rosemary
Stash Lemon Rooibos Iced Herbal Tea Powder
Made The Hubs try this, since I’ve had rooibos before and it wasn’t my thing. (I’m a total tea snob, and rooibos is not true tea!) He made it and was sort of neutral on the flavor, so I took a sip. Basically it tasted like lemon water. Not bad, just not amazing.
All in all, a great box! Can’t wait to try September’s!
