  1. My answer is the same as Eric’s. I knew it existed, but never wanted to try it because it sounded disgusting. But it’s actually delicious! I’ve gotten other people hooked on it, too.

  2. OMG that “sugar cookie” chocolate, holy cow.

  3. I love that popcorn too! I love the Money on Honey Droga Chocolates and the Cookie Mix that came in a Mason jar from PopSugar. They sure did snacks right!

  4. I think my fave were coconut marshmallows in a LE PopSugar box. I savored them and made them last!!!

  5. BritBox had a sweets box that you could buy as a one-off. All the chocolate from the UK was amazing.

  6. I have to declare a tie between some balsamic vinegar received in a Try the World box and Enstrom’s toffee received in Love With Food.

  7. ZaxSnacks from My Texas Market

  8. Jarred tomatoes from a Try the World box! So delicious on toasted bread.

  9. Naturebox’s Sriracha Cashews. Wish I could buy them elsewhere!

    • You can buy these at some Target locations where they sell NatureBox! They’re also my favorite. Work used to get the corporate sub and I’d steal the whole bag of these… 🙂

  10. Graze flapjacks are so good! Wish I could buy them at the grocery store!

  11. cinnamon sugar marshmallows from PopSugar. Was the brand smashmallow? I can’t remember. My husband and I devoured them.

    • OMG, those were awesome.

  12. Degustabox once sent out yogurt covered strawberry fruit snacks. They were made by Welch’s and the sort of thing that SHOULD have been available in every grocery store. Alas, they are not sold in my neck of the woods. They were spectacular. It’s been well over a year, but I still check the Welch’s website at least once per month to see if any stores within 100 miles of me have started selling them.

    • Those were so yummy!

  13. Sommers granola from Robb Vices

  14. Treatsie (August 2015) TUMBADOR PB&J Bar – the most sophisticated peanut butter and jelly I’ve ever tasted.

  15. i really like several naturebox items, including the cheddar hatch chile crackers and the lemon shortbread cookies. there was this delicious cookie in the italy box from try the world once, and a delicious little cake/cookie thing in their korean box too!

  16. Some kind of BBQ chips that Popsugar sent out a couple years ago, I forgot the name of the brand but it was so good!

    • I think those were the One Potato Two Potato Hawaiian BBQ chips. So good!

  17. Money on Honey Droga Chocolates….the squares of decadent honey caramel dipped in dark chocolate and finished with sea salt…..divine. The ones we got in the last popsugar were good, but the first ones, were thicker caramel, and just divine.

    • Oh yes!!!!

  18. The Big Picture Farms caramels from RV. (And I had the Cretors popcorn for breakfast today.)

  19. Toasted Coconut marshmallows and the Vosges Peanut Butter Chocolates, both from I believe PopSugar LE boxes. I have repurchased both and have received both as gifts from my husband and friends because everyone knows they’re my FAVORITES!!!

  20. Those Parmesan whisps!!! And Willa’s Shortbread from a Batch Box.

    • Definitely the Whisps!!

  21. Pecan mustard from PSMH. So delicious to make egg salad with!

  22. The chai caramels from big picture farm that came in the summer PS LE box.

    • My son loved those so much that he ordered another box from the farm. They had to be shipped in an insulated box because it was August and we live in Texas. With shipping, that one box cost $35!!!

      I really enjoyed lots of snacks from NatureBox. Jalapeño cashews are amazing. The strawberry fig bars are so delicious.

  23. Sweet and Salty Surrender from Sweet is the Spice which I got in Haterchy Box. It’s a granulated sugar/spice mix. Sprinkle it on the best vanilla ice cream you can find. It is kind of dessert that makes people go wow!!!

  24. I love the little French chocolates and cookies Emma & Chloe tucks in with my monthly jewelry piece

  25. Oloves olives, I think from Love with Food. The lemony ones – they don’t make them anymore. : (

  26. Vineoh! Winter box, the Brix chocolate for wine. Great with wine, great by itself!!!

  27. I loved the ladyfingers from Oui Please. Still not a $30 cookie but oh man we’re they good!

    • You can buy them from yummy bazzar for less than $3 😊

  28. Peri Peri sauce from Degusta Box. Finished the whole jar just having it with quesadillas lol. Spicy and savory

  29. Non sweet from Degusta were the Whisps! The sweet treat was that big tube of chocolates from Popsugar.

  30. Goodie Girls cookies from Popsugar must have! Any of the treats in Popsugar are yummy!

  31. Churro Smashmallows from the March 2017 PopSugar box

  32. Sugarfina sugar lips from a LE Birchbox, and Vosges dark chocolate caramels from PSMH December box.

    • Yes!!! The sugar lips!

  33. Horseradish mustard from RV

    • I loved that mustard, too!

  34. Pasta Chips (Marinara flavor) from Love With Food

  35. I loved the raspberry walnut Orchard Bar from Love with Food. Orchard Bars are now my go-to work snack.

    I also loved My Cup of Cocoa from PopSugar.

    Other greats are: CC Made Dark Chocolate Sauce & Salt of the Earth OMGCB Brownie from Amazon Sweet Surprises (RIP 😢).

  36. The Terrapin Ridge Pecan Mustard from Pop Sugar and real Canadian All-Dressed potato chips from Get Canucked.

    • That mustard was amazing!

  37. A sweet, but salty chocolate bar from a Yuzen box.

  38. Grey Ghost Bakery cookies from Sweet Surprise.

  39. In the Vineoh! Welcome box there was a Pretzel Surprise Marshmallow Crispycakes from the Crispery. They are very rich so I shared with my husband over a glass of wine. One of my favorite sweet treats for sure.

  40. Emys cookies

  41. Very small sample size for me but the Ion bar in last month’s Universal Yums box was awesome chocolate with pieces of almond orange and lemon.

  42. Annie B’s popcorn from LLB Serendipity and Dave’s Sweet Tooth Toffee from Love With Food. Tried other brands of both and they just don’t compete!

  43. Sugarfina Champagne Bears!

  44. Whisps

  45. Anything non-chocalately. Not a big chocolate lover

  46. Sugarfina!

    Too many favs to list

    Technically not a food but I’m so obsessed that I will buy any type of box that includes the brand 😊

    • YES! Such a good one! I love those Sugarfina gummies! 🙂

  47. I have two.
    – the sweet and hot mustard by Liss Ellas from the June 2017 Hamptons Lane (I have been swearching everywhere to try and buy it and I can’t)
    – the sriracha cheese puffs from the March 2017 Robb vices box.

  48. Brianna s salad dressing. It makes salad taste better than fries

  49. Nando’s Peri peri sauce from Degusta box or the pineapple rings from nature box are my favorites.

    • Ooo I forgot about those pineapple rings! SO good!
