Unveiling...this baby is packed!

All the Goods!


 The Daily Crave Veggie Chips 
{ The Daily Crave Veggie Chips weren't bad.  I had them with my lunch today...not super flavorful, but crunchy - which satisfied my craving for potato chips. }
Beanitos Bean Chips
{ These were pretty good.  I wish I would've had some guacamole/salsa/bean dip on hand to dip these in.  I'll be purchasing some of these for an upcoming party we're having. }

Just Tomatoes
{ Ummm...I love tomatoes, I mean LOOOOVE them.  I really didn't like these.  They were super sweet, but all they are is dehydrated tomatoes.  I prefer mine fresh.  B-Real hates tomatoes, so we gave them to his dad to try...still waiting to hear what he thinks of them. }
Lydia's Organics Rawkin' Beet Chips Spicy
{ These went directly to B-Real's dad with the Just Tomatoes bag.  Still waiting to hear about these from him. }


 Caveman Foods Nuts
{ I tried the Caveman Nuts - meh! I was super excited, because I love nuts.  The front photo shows tons of nuts, then in the corner just a smidge of sunflower seeds.  The pkg. said it would include cashews, macadamia nuts, walnuts, pistachios, and sunflower seeds.  Except for the 2 pistachios and 1 walnut...it was ALL sunflower seeds.  Don't get me wrong, I like sunflower seeds.  However this package should just read SUNFLOWER SEEDS, not NUTS. }
Hail Merry Macaroons Strawberry
{ B-Real & I both tried these - although he only ate 1/2 of one since they have so many carbs - and both of us liked them.  They aren't overly sweet, and you definitely taste the coconut in them.  We are a coconut oil household, so these were great.  I like the variety of items they have online as well.  If you get a chance to try these - do it!  Make sure you check out the bottom of the bag as well though, they have a really fun drawing on there! }

Nibnaks Crancherry Tart
{ These were really good...you can't go wrong with dried fruit though. }
Plum Organics Kids Mashups Berry
{ I LOVE Plum Organics!! I can't say enough about their products. They are the only store bought baby food I will give Squish.  She has loved everything I've given her - the Puffs, the Cremes, the Teething Biscuits.  I will wait to give her this since it has Strawberry in it. }


Gopal's Raw Brownie Original
{ I wanted to love this, I really did. Brownie...wha??? Of course I love brownies, and I even love GF brownies - that I make - but the "raw"-ness of this just didn't do it for me. I wish I had liked this more, I was really rooting for this one. }
Just Great Stuff Cacao + Acai Bar
{ I tried this bar the other afternoon while pumping for a little pick me up. I had skipped lunch - so I could pump - and was pretty hungry.  I don't think I'd pick this again, unless it was one of the only choices...but it wasn't bad.  I think I just didn't like the raw, gummy texture.  It was pretty tasty, although I would rather eat my nuts and fruit straight up. }
Gorge Delights Just Fruit Bar Pear Strawberry
{ This bar was pretty tasty! I typically have bars of all sorts stashed in my pump bag, and this is one that I might add to the mix.  }
The Lowdown: Customer service is A+ with this company.  The packaging, shipping, and design is impeccable.  Many of these items I've never heard of, or the company is new to me.  I really liked this box, even if I didn't like all the products.
I purchased this box as a one time box, but I'm thinking about signing up for their Starter box, and then gifting one to a friend.
