this was the last box in our subscription, and it was time to decide whether or not to continue the service month-to-month, buy another package, or nix it altogether.
i was going to let bffbf pick the contents of this box, however, he totally forgot, and i ended up choosing them all right before our box was shipped out. i opted for one repeat item and four new ones:
oat bran dippin' stix
toasted cheddar stix
lemon tea biscuits
honeycomb sunflower kernels
the oat bran dippin' stix was the repeat item, so obviously we liked it a lot. the toasted cheddar stix actually taste just like the oat bran dippin' stix with a slightly cheesy flavor, and really salty. too salty. the lemon tea biscuits were pretty good, and taste like tiny lemon shortbread cookies. a few were more than enough to satisfy a snack craving. the honeycomb sunflower kernels were lightly sweet and tasty as well (although not as good as the praline pumpkin seeds from our previous box). i really enjoyed the guacamole bites, but it had the same issue as the toasted cheddar stix-- wayyyyyyy over-seasoned.
ultimately, we decided not to continue the service. i was more on the fence about it than bffbf was, but in the end, the snacks just weren't good enough to warrant a box every month. while i mostly liked the snacks that we received, they were often overpowering in flavor or totally under-seasoned. and really, most importantly, even with bffbf's help, i have trouble consuming all the snacks every month. i'm just not that big of a snacker, and i found myself snacking more just to get through them to clear out the pantry!
although this wasn't the right service for me/us, i definitely think it's a good one overall.
