Melissa includes a handwritten/drawn letter with each box – I love it! The theme this box is “Knock Out Your Morning.”
On the flip side of the letter are recipes for paleo pancakes and eggs.
Arthur Egg Holder – Value $9.20
This hard boiled egg holder is adorable – it even has a removable sword/spoon. I love eggs scrambled, but not hard boiled, so this is going in the gift/swap pile.
Knuckle Duster Mug – Value $30
We’ve received a few of these mugs in Fancy Boxes in the past, and they always make great gifts. (The only thing I don’t like about this mug is that it isn’t dishwasher safe). And on this one the gold paint is already starting to rub off.
Tega Earl Grey Rooibos Organic Tea – Value $7
I’m a little obsessed with tea, so I love discovering new brands in subscription boxes (especially if they are organic and fair trade). This flavor is a winner for me, and I plan on trying more from the Tega brand!
Old Salt Merchants Black Powder Salt – Value $10
Yawp! Coconut Chai Bar – Value $3
This Black Powder Salt is made with activated charcoal and supposed to be good for digestion. She also used it in her included it in recipe for Egg-Cellent Yolks. The Yawp! bar was pretty good. It wasn’t too sweet, but I didn’t like it enough to want to buy more.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $60. For food boxes I don’t expect the value to be much more than the cost (that’s just the way it is with food subscription boxes), but I would have preferred more food in this box like the first box. I think the mug and egg cup are fun items, but just aren’t for me personally, so this isn’t my favorite box. What did you think of #EAT02?
