This month’s theme was chocolate and fruit!


Lady Walton’s White Chocolate Amaretto Cookie – $0.91

Target used to sell their own brand of cookies similar to these, and they were my all time favorites!  I’m not sure why I never looked around to see if there were any cookies similar, but I am so glad Something Snacks decided to include these!  This cookie was lightly crunchy, sweet, and amaretto flavored – I’m smitten all over.  

180 Snacks Nutty Rice Bites with Blueberries – $1.75

These were really pretty good.  They seem to be decently healthy, and I believe they are gluten free.  The flavor was nice – lightly sweet, nutty, and fruity all at the same time.   

Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies – $0.88

If you have to eat packaged chocolate chip cookies, these are the ones to go for.  They’re soft, sweet, and chock full of chocolate chips.  I prefer more salt in my cookies, but they’re really good for manufactured cookies.  


Raspberry KitKat from Japan – $1.25

I really liked this!  There’s something about all of the new flavors of KitKat that I’ve been able to try since subscribing to subscription boxes that excites me!  I know, it doesn’t take much.  My favorite has been the Sakura KitKat, which unfortunately, I can’t find online!!

Del La Rosa Peanut Candy Marzipan Style Covered with Chocolate – $0.87

I used to love these little pasty discs of peanut matter.  These will suck all of the moisture out of your mouth in about 2 seconds.  The chocolate addition here is nice, but these are never going to be a favorite of mine as an adult!


Lulu Platanitos Plantain Chips with Lemon – $1.00

I really liked these.  Plantains are something that I wasn’t super familiar with until a few years ago, but I love them!  These chips are lightly flavored with lemon and delicious.  I love the crunch, and the lightly sweet flavor of the plantain.  

Knott’s Berry Farm Apricot Shortbread – $0.60

If there’s another cookie that is so reminiscent of childhood than these Knott’s Berry Farm shortbread cookies, I don’t know it!  I grew up near Knott’s Berry Farm, and it was always so weird to me that they had a full line of jam, jelly, cookies, and whatever else they sell, because to me, they’ll always be an amusement park!  These were really good though – you can’t go wrong with shortbread. 

Verdict: This Something Snacks box has a value of about $7.26.  Even if you sign up for a longer subscription, you’re paying about $12.00 to the US…I think it would be nice for the value on this box to come up a bit.  I do think it is a fun box to get, since there’s generally a nice mix of sweet and savory though.

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. Those plantain chips were absolutely AMAZING! I immediately went online to see where to buy them. They don’t really have them in stores near me, so I’ll have to buy them in bulk from the makers directly online, which is perfectly fine with me! I could honestly eat every single bag in one sitting if I let myself ?
