Kath Younger Quarterly Box Subscription #KRF01

Kath Younger is one of the newest Quarterly curators. Her boxes focus on healthy eating and living, so I decided to sign up and give this box a try!

Kath Younger Quarterly Box Subscription Review #KRF01 Letter

Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items in the box and why they were selected. For her first box, Kath’s theme is “Best of the Blog” – some of her favorite finds from the past few years.

Kath Younger Quarterly Box Subscription Review #KRF01 Eat Real Food

Victory Garden of Tomorrow Eat Real Food Poster – Value $15

The physical box of this shipment was enormous thanks to this poster – and I’m glad Quarterly took care of shipping it the right way – it arrived in perfect condition. I think I’ll be framing this piece!

Kath Younger Quarterly Box Subscription Review #KRF01 Cuppow

CVille Cluster Granola – Value $7?

Cuppow Mason Jar Lid – Value $9

Peg’s Salt – Sample

I’ve received a few cuppows in other subscription boxes, so this one will probably be swapped. I’m really happy with the size of the granola, but I wish the salt would have been in a more usable container.

Kath Younger Quarterly Box Subscription Review #KRF01 Napkins

Girls Day Out Earrings – Value $12 (estimating value based on other earrings in her shop)

Dot & Army Black and White Napkin Set – Value $20

These earrings are little green rose studs. They aren’t exactly my style, so I’ll be swapping or gifting them, but I do like a lot of the pieces in the Girls Day Out shop!

And as someone who has never done any formal dining in her own home, I think these mix and match napkins are a less formal way to start!

Kath Younger Quarterly Box Subscription Review #KRF01 Cooking

Cook Smarts 3 Month Subscription – Value $21

I’m always a little skeptical with these kind of offers in subscription boxes – but I got three free months without having to enter any credit card info. If you have foods you avoid I definitely recommend checking it out – they offer all their recipes with gluten-free, vegetarian, paleo, etc options. This link should let you try it free too!

Verdict: I paid $50 for this box and received about $85 worth of products. (I’m counting the Cook Smarts subscription toward the value since it is completely free). I’m happy with the value of this box, and reading the letter with the box really showed the personal connection Kath has with each item – you can tell she really loves each item in this box!

What do you think of the first Kath Younger Quarterly Box?

  1. Liz, I hope you enjoy your Cook Smarts subscription and thanks for including a link to sign up for a free account. It is one of our biggest pet peeves when companies say they’ll give you something for free if you give them your payment info. We never want to be that kind of company! Enjoy your no-strings-attached 3 month subscription to Cook Smarts!

  2. I impulsively signed up for this box with no real expectations because I too was attracted to the ‘healthy lifestyle’ theme, although I’ve never actually heard of Kath Younger. I absolutely loved this box! Everything in it! I will definitely be keeping this sub going. My poster did arrive damaged however, my whole box got squished and so did the bottom of the print. I do really like it though, and plan on framing it and hanging it in my kitchen, I’m hoping I can just tack down the crumply parts and it will look ok.

  3. I really enjoyed this box. Love the napkins and can’t wait to try the granola.

  4. This looks like a good box. I am always wary of foodie boxes because of fatal allergies, but it is nice to view them online!

  5. Thanks for reviewing my box!

  6. I love the items in the box especially the poster. I’m thinking about signing up for the second box.

    • I thought the poster was a really fun and unique item for a subscription box. 🙂

  7. Those napkins are super cute!!

  8. I’ve subscribed to CookSmarts for awhile now. I think you’ll enjoy it! Creative, easy and delicious dishes, shopping lists, vegetarian, gluten free and paleo options for every recipe. But the best part, for non-cooks like me, is that it teaches you to cook and become more comfortable in the kitchen. (Eg. short videos on how to chop or prepare ingredients, what you can prep a day ahead) There’s an active private Facebook community, and the head chef is very responsive to any questions you might have.
