This is a review of the $15 introductory box, which is no longer available.
Shark Energy Drink – $3.00?
It was incredibly difficult to find this energy drink for sale online, so I’m guessing at the price. This energy drink uses natural caffeine derived from coffee beans instead of artificial caffeine. I am not an energy drink person, so this is going to a friend.
Portable Phone Charger – $10.00?
This is an exclusive item for Tether Box, so I’m guessing at the price. I charged this up and used it for a few days and it seemed to work well! It’s very light weight and the cord that charges it would also work for most Android phones.
Karmic Nature Lip Balm – $2.99
This lip balm is made with sweet almond oil, beeswax, coconut oil, avocado oil, mango butter, and cocoa butter. The one I received is cherry vanilla. It smells great, and goes on smoothly. I really like it!
Apparently I’m out of the loop. I had no previous knowledge of anything regarding the 240sweet franchise. Apparently they’ve been on a TV show, or something. Since I had no previous knowledge, I just tried my marshmallows and thought they were pretty good on my hot chocolate. Would I pay $1.00 per marshmallow? Nope.
Jackson’s Honest BBQ Chips – $1.19
I’ve received this brand quite a few times in boxes, and I am always happy to have more. Jackson’s Honest makes really great potato chips, and the flavors are all very good! These BBQ might just be my favorite.
Extra Gum – $0.83
I can always use more gum! This isn’t a super exciting item in the box, but definitely one that most of us can use!
UPDATE: Tetherbox let us know this box is their $15 introductory box, which is no longer available.
Verdict: This box is supposed to be aimed at college students, as a care package. I think the items in the box would all appeal to college aged students, and would work for any gender. The total value of the box is $28.01. It is definitely possible that I undervalued the phone battery bank – I tried to go in the middle of the prices I found. I think that any student that received this box would find it helpful, especially with finals coming up – spending late nights in the library, and needing energy (and sweets – I’ve only been back to school for a semester, and feel like I’ve already packed on the Freshman 15).
