Skoshbox is going green and now posts info on the snacks on their site rather than sending detailed booklets as they did before. They also sent this advert encouraging subscribers to post pics of their boxes with #skoshbox hashtag for a chance to win a $10 shop credit!
Peapari: Peanut Butter Flavor – Retail Value $4.54? (value based on similar product)
This snack was so interesting! Just by looking at the box, I thought this was going to be a cashew covered in some sort of sweet shell. Instead, these are more of a crunchy puff, no peanuts in the center. The snack is very light and fluffy with a melt in your mouth texture. This flavor is peanut butter and oh so sweet and creamy!
Kabaya Pureral Gummy — Retail Value $1.69
The softest and sweetest gummy I have ever tried! This snack honestly looks like a candied dried apple slice. When you pop one in your mouth you are hit with this delightful apple flavor. When you get to the center you get this really strong sweetness that blends so well with the apple taste. So soft and sweet!
Polinky Assari Corn — Retail Value $2.90
This little corn puff snack was so fun and delicious! The little puffs reminded me of Chex Mix, I could totally see this being included in a savory trail mix! The corn puff itself is extra crunchy with a hint of salt flavor. What you mostly get though is this delicious sweet flavor like sugar and a sweet corn. So delicious!
Kabaya Tough Gummy — Retail Value $2.58 (currently out of stock)
This bag comes with three, yes three, different gummy flavors! There are ginger ale, cola, and cider. The gummy is extra chewy, most likely why they are called tough, with this delicious sugar coating on the outside. These really tasted like a bold Sour Patch Kid because they have that sweet sourness but the flavors in each gummy are so different and delicious!
Coris Mic Ramune — Retail Value $1.00?
My son thought this little microphone was for him so he had a blast running around with it! Inside are these delicious cola flavored candies. They look like a hard candy but are a little softer similar to Pez. I didn’t get a strong cola flavor, but I think this little candy is more meant for the awesome microphone.
Bake Cookie Chocolate — Retail Value $3.01 (currently out of stock)
Favorite snack of the month! These little cookies are the perfect amount of sweetness with hints of vanilla. The center is filled with chocolate, but it really had more of an icing or even chocolate mousse-like texture. You get a ton of these cookies in the box, but I am not ashamed to say that I ate all of them very quickly. Chocolate, sweet, and so much goodness!
Verdict: I really love how unique each of the snacks from this month Skoshbox were! Each snack was so delicious and were ones that I have never seen or tasted before from other snack boxes. As I mentioned earlier, Skoshbox is no longer sending monthly booklets in order to be more green, which I absolutely love! To learn more about each snack you just go to their site for the same detailed look at what is featured in that month’s box. Not only was the snack curation so different, but I love that Skoshbox is standing out to ensure that their customers can still get all of the snacking information they need online while helping our environment!
To Wrap Up:
Can I still get this box if I sign up today? No, if you sign up today you will receive the December box. All orders will start shipping for December on 11/30.
Value Breakdown: This monthly box is $12 a month with free shipping. I received six snacks which average out to $2 per item. Each item was very hard to find to purchase online which usually means that the snacks are a bit more exclusive. When you look at the unique items from this month, I think the overall value is totally worth the monthly cost.
