Fruit for Thought is a new, subscription box that sends fruit or vegetable themed packages each month. They were bimonthly, but have recently introduced a monthly option as well. This is a review of the regular subscription box.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The packaging on this box is always really nice.  The items come wrapped in tissue paper with a fruity ribbon and sticker holding it all together. There is also usually one item that comes wrapped in wrapping paper – so fun!

The August/September box theme is Pink Lemonade!  The October box theme will be Peanut Butter Banana.

Set of 3 seed bead stretch bracelets by Stephanie Martin Co. – $10.00

I received two yellow and one pink seed bracelets. They are very delicate and pretty, and seem like they will fit most people. The bracelets themselves do stretch, and they came pre-wrapped for gifting if you would like to gift them!

Here’s a closer look at the bracelets.

Sheet of Pink Lemonade Stickers – $2.50

These are super cute stickers. I wish I had more use for stickers than I do, because I find that I am getting quite a few sheets in my sub boxes.  

Pink Lemonade Beach Ball – $1.00

This is the perfect item for the end of summer beach trips! The ball is a bit smaller than your standard beach ball, but it’s much cuter!

2 Packs Lemon/Pink Lemon Seeds – $3.00

I am really tempted to try to plant these, even knowing that with my luck they won’t ever even sprout. I have the blackest of black thumbs and I think seeds smell my fear. We’ll see if I ever figure out how to get these in the ground without killing them.

Lemon Magnetic Bookmark – $4.00

These are seriously cute. They’re a perfect little gift for those going back to school, or even just using them for that end of summer novel that you’re reading. I tend to really like magnetic bookmarks because they stay put!

2 whimsical Pink Lemonade Stand Cards – $3.00

The art work on these is really cute. I think these would be perfect framed or used as intended. I received three cards, but only two envelopes – I think this was a mistake, but it lets me display one of the cards without feeling guilty for not using it!

Hand Painted Pink Lemonade Frame – $12.00

How sweet is this little frame? I think this would look adorable in a little girl’s room, or used for a party decoration. I will probably keep this for the latter purpose – I am the go-to party person and I am always looking for new decor!

Tipsy Daisy Lemonade Daze Wine Slushie Mix – $9.00

This is a lemonade mix that you can use with wine and water to make a wine slushie. I don’t drink alcohol, so I am going to save this one for someone that will use it to it’s fullest potential! It has four ingredients: sugar, citric acid, lemon juice powder, and honey powder; so this should be pretty safe for most food allergies or intolerances, but don’t take my word for it.

Pink Lemonade Bath Bomb – $4.00

This pink lemonade bath bomb smells amazing. I haven’t had the time to relax in the bath tub, but I’m definitely looking forward to using it soon. This bath bomb contains glycerin, coconut oil, palm oil, castor seed oil, safflower seed oil, water, sorbitan oleate, soybean protein, titanium dioxide, fragrance oil, colorant. I would imagine with all those oils and gylcerin included, this would be pretty moisturizing!

Pink Lemonade Chewy Candies

Fruit for Thought always includes some sort of treat in the boxes and this month it’s chewy candies that taste like pink lemonade. I really enjoyed these!

Verdict: Fruit for Thought is always a fun box to get. The curator and owner, Pam, does an excellent job at finding items to fit the theme that are useful and fun. My favorite box was probably the Pina Colada box in May, but this one is definitely still a fun assortment of items that are totally giftable too. I think this box would be a really fun option to give as a gift subscription!

Have you tried Fruit for Thought yet?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. The review was great and the box was cute. The catch of course is that the box costs $46.00 ( that’s with shipping) and the box is worth about $48.50…… I think I will just continue to read the reviews but skip on the box until it becomes cheaper.

  2. Cute box, and nice review – but this doesn’t look like a box worth almost $50 (I always count in shipping costs). Nothing is stand out here, and this kind of feels like stuff I could get at Wal-Mart.

  3. Hmmmm I don’t really like this box as much as the last one reviewed. I’d only use the bath bomb, the slushie mix, and the candy. Still on my sub wish list though.

  4. I think the West Coast coupon was added as a mistake – the shipping is a flat rate of $7 or $8 depending on the box purchased. The West Coast coupon was effective a few months ago and the company re-worked their shipping policy.

  5. The shipping as listed confuses me. In the cost it says that it is a flat rate shipping price but then the coupon says $10 shipping which is more than both flat rate shipping prices listed and it says it varies on weight for east cost which isn’t flat rate. So what would be the point of the coupon? Or is the coupon wrong or not intended for this box?

    • I agree. The shipping charges make no sense. $7 for the small box, $8 for the large box but, with the coupon, it’s $10 for the west coast. Maybe I’m missing something…..
