I mentioned it a few weeks ago, but Goodies Co. has announced they are launching a Kid’s Box of Goodies, which just like their original Taster’s Box is only $7/month! The box is geared towards kids ages 5-8 and is a great way to discover and taste new snacks (both foods and beverages). The first box is shipping in August, but L and I were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of it.
As luck would have it, L was still home when it arrived yesterday. I have no clue where it came from. It just appeared on our porch sort of out of nowhere. I like secret deliveries, so I didn’t even check the tracking label. And L knew right away just from looking at the box that it was for HIM. The box itself is very kid like and perfect for L.
Another reason I didn’t pay too much attention to the label is because I peeled it off so you could see the adorable box the Goodies Kid’s Box comes in. It’s totally meant to be colored by the recipient and I think that’s a great idea! I also love the idea of decorating this box and then using it as a gift box! I think L’s Nana would love a box colored by L instead of just a plain old boring box.
So I was totally expecting to receive a box which included the items on the Goodies Co. Kid’s Box section of the webpage. But I was happily surprised that the box included all different items! Yay!!! I confirmed with Goodies that this is the box that subscribers will receive for August, so if you were hoping for seaweed, sorry ;).
The Goodies Kid’s box didn’t come with an information card (L could care less if I read him information on snacks), rather it comes with a card that gives you a recipe to play with your food, i.e. to make GLOP! GLOP is just corn starch and water and we’ve made it before, but we will totally do it again. I do have to say that corn starch is a staple in many Pinterest type kid’s projects.
Here is what our box included:
~Crunchmaster Grammy Crisps: Word on the street is that these taste like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and I can’t wait to verify this for myself. Sadly, I pinky promised L that I would not try any of the snacks in his special box until we could try them together when we got home from up-north, so I must wait. But the last day to order in time to get the August box is July 25th, so I wanted to get my post up as quickly as possible.
~Diamond Bakery Hawaiian Animal Cookies: These are little ocean creature shaped graham crackers and I think they are what I want to try the most out of the box. They are made in Hawaii and I know if I saw these at the store, I’d buy them based on the package alone.
~barefruit Crunchy Fuji Red Apples: I’ve had these before and they are delicious! I was excited to see more of them in the box for sure and don’t know why I don’t ever grab them when I am at the store. Next time!
~Motts Medleys: Both B and L love fruit snacks and Mott’s are a favorite. L will probably eat these while he decides what to eat next from his box when he gets home. L is a growing boy and must eat something every 2-3 hours (he’s always been like this), so I keep fruit snacks and the like handy in the car for “emergencies”.
~Tangy Zangy Twisties: These seem to have been released quite recently and are sure to be a new favorite of L’s. And while yes, eating a piece of fruit would be healthier, these are made from 100% fruit juice, so that’s a plus for sure.
~got milk Straws: These straws are a huge deal around our house and L always asks for him when we run across them at the store. And since I was so curious about them the first time we got them, I tried them and can confirm that they are quite delicious. And fun.
~Enjoy Life Chocolate Chip Cookie: Can you go wrong with chocolate chip cookies? I think not. There having been very few (if any) times in life that I have thought to myself, wow, that chocolate chip cookie sucked. They just don’t suck. A chocolate chip cookie can solve many problems can’t it?
From the little time L got to spend with his Kid’s Goodies Box, he was thrilled. Totally thrilled. Without question we will be adding this to our monthly subscription box collection. I mean for only $7/month (including shipping), how could we not?? It’s a perfect way to get out of our snack rut (and we’ve so been in one this summer) and test out some new things without spending a fortune on full sized items.
