Boxwalla is calling this their “Slowly Summer” box because it’s perfect for picnics, summer meals, etc. This card is filled with information on all of the products in the box as well as the brands/vendors who make them and where they are made.
Rick & Grant LeBeau’s Rickaroons (Chocolate Blonde), 1.6 oz. bar – Value $2.08 (buy a box of 12 for $25.00)
My chocolate chips were a little melty by the time I had a chance to have one, but they were pretty good. The problem for me is the coconut which is significant considering that it’s the main ingredient in these bars. You could really taste the coconut in this one and I don’t like coconut. Other than that small detail, these were good! If you like coconut, you will definitely enjoy these bars.
Rick & Grant LeBeau’s Rickaroons (Megaroon), 1.6 oz. bar – Value $2.08 (buy a box of 12 for $25.00)
My sentiments from above also stand for this one. I will say that this bar was definitely more nutty in flavor and softer. Still pretty coconut tasting.
Warrick & Ashley’s Wozz Kitchen Creations Spicy Summer Mango Chutney, 11.8 oz. – Value $10.00
When they said spicy, they weren’t kidding! As soon as I tasted this, I was immediately hit with the spice. Not in a bad way, of course, but definitely noticeable. It was, however, also sweet and generally tasty. This would be good with cheese and crackers or mixed in with your fave meat or veggies over rice.
ZenBunni Queen Moon Reishi Gheenache, 28 servings – Value $20.00
Super chocolatey treat! You can add this to your hot chocolate drink for more richness, add it to coffee, dessert, or on top of toast with fruit. Really good and very rich. You could definitely also taste the earthiness of the mushrooms.
ZenBunni Kathmandu Chai Coco, 16 serving bag – Value $20.00
This drink mix was very interesting! It was like a hot cocoa mix, but the “mix” was more like crushed up cocoa and various other roots and spices. The flavor was definitely chocolatey, but also had a little spice, perhaps chili? It also had a flavor that I don’t quite recognize that is very root-like and earthy. It was okay, but not something I would immediately grab for on a regular basis.
Verdict: The value of this box is approximately $54.16 and the cost of the box being $44.95 with free shipping. I would say that the value is worth the price of this Boxwalla subscription. The ZenBunni items were clearly the most expensive coming in at $20 each. I think that is definitely a lot for what they are, but they are also unique items you can’t find anywhere else. That is what you are essentially paying for with this box. I am interested in trying their beauty box too!
