The box includes a basic “Happy Fall” card.
The outer box can be upcycled into storage space. They’re stackable and make for nifty organizational shelves! CampusCube kindly sent me a couple extra boxes in September so you can see what they look like when used together as storage solutions. The items shown are for scale.
Sheila’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Brownie Brittle – Value $3.99
I love brownie brittle! It’s quite possibly the best recent snack invention besides cronuts. The squares are deliciously thin and crispy. Each piece contains generous amounts of dark chocolate chips. Plus, there are only 120 calories per serving!
BookChickaPop Candy Corn Holidrizzle Popcorn – Value $2.88
This popcorn has candy corn-flavored drizzle and it tastes as amazing as it sounds. Each handful (because it isn’t possible to eat this one popcorn at a time) has the perfect amount candy corn sweetness. This is also included in the Guys October/Fall box.
Modern Oats Vermont Maple Oatmeal – Value $3.50
I appreciate fast and convenient breakfast options, so instant oatmeal is great. Some notable ingredients here include maple sugar and pumpkin seeds. Each bite contains the perfect amount of sweetness while the seeds provide a bit of crunch. I’m a big fan.
Republic of Tea Pumpkin Spice Travel Tin – Value $4.50
This is a black tea blend that includes ginger, cinnamon, and pumpkin. The tin contains six round tea bags. The tea is so aromatic and very appropriate for the season. I had mine with milk and it tasted like perfection.
Andalou Naturals Instant Brightening Face Mask – Value $3.69
This is a wash-off face mask that contains pumpkin puree, aloe vera, and manuka honey. It looks and smells like pumpkin pie. I started feeling a cooling sensation several minutes after application and it remained so until I washed it off. My face felt very soft, plump, and nourished afterward!
This is perfect as an on-the-go snack. The soft, chewy granola bites contain blueberries, apples, and apricots. I like how it’s not overly sweet. The fruit and berry blend is very tasty as well.
Krave Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky – Value $7
This jerky is amazing! It took me considerable effort not to eat the whole bag in one sitting. Each piece is soft, juicy, and tender. I love the sweet and smoky barbecue flavor.
Sinji Pouch Smartphone Cardholder Wallet – Value $7.99
This is an adhesive pouch-like wallet that you can attach to the back of your smartphone. The pouch is made of stretchy fabric so you can store multiple cards or bills inside. I think this is a great item to have for a college student. It’s really convenient for when you don’t want to lug around purses or wallets.
Harry’s Truman Razor – $17
This razor is made with a comfortable, matte rubbery grip plus a weighted core for better control. The blades have a flexible hinge and lubricating strip. Overall, it looks and feels like a high-quality item. The box includes a coupon code to redeem four free blades plus free shipping from the Harry’s website. The razor costs $9 while the four redeemable blades are $8.
FYI, every new subscriber receives the Sinji cardholder wallet and Harry’s razor in his or her Cube. Subscribers for whom this was the second Cube received a phone charger instead.
Verdict: The total retail value for this box is $52.55, which I think is a nice value especially at the $31.99 or $34.99 price point. I think CampusCube is a fun care package– I would have loved to receive this in college. Of course, you don’t have to be a college student to enjoy this either! I also appreciate the bonus upcycled storage box, which is both resourceful and environmentally conscious.
If you subscribe today you will receive the October/Fall Box.
