Saffron Road Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce – Value $4.25
This sauce is vegan and gluten-free! It’s also made with wholesome ingredients – definitely a great pantry item for non-Plated meal nights!
Kind Bar in Dark Chocolate Chili Almond – Value $1.50
Snikiddy All Natural Baked Fries in Cheddar – Value $1.50
My husband liked the cheddar fries, and I love Kind bars, so these items were wins!
Pacific Organic Chicken Simply Stock – Value $2
Organic chicken broth and Simply Organic mixes are both staples in our pantry, so I’m always happy to have more. (I love these smaller chicken stock containers). I use simply organic chili mix nearly every week, so I love trying new mixes – I may even try this with coconut yogurt!
I Heart Keenwah in Ginger Peanut – Value $5
These were really good, but very hard (not sure if I just tried them too soon after they had been in the cold weather though).
Verdict: I thought the curation of the box this month was excellent. All the products were healthy and many of them were organic. I also appreciate a mix of snack and pantry items. On the flip side, this month’s value wasn’t as great as other months. I paid $19 for this box and received $16.25 worth of items (plus a $1 off coupon for Saffron Road items). If they consistently sent out boxes with a value of less than what I paid, I would probably think about canceling this subscription, but most boxes have had a value of more than what I paid, plus I really like the items this month, so I’ll keep subscribing!
