Fruit For Thought “Blood Orange Kumquat” January 2019 Review
Here is the card that gives you some more information about the items included.
Tarocco Blood Orange Shampoo, 8.6 oz – Retail Value $18
I am pretty picky about the shampoos that I use, but I really loved the refreshing blood orange scent this had. I enjoy reaching for citrus scents in the morning when I am trying to start the day off right (or just fully wake up), and this would fit right in with my other citrus necessities.
GGCreations75 Kumquat Bath Bomb – Retail Value $3.50
This bath bomb has a bright citrus scent thanks to notes of kumquat, orange, and pineapple, and it is made with mango butter, cocoa butter, shea butter, and apricot oil to hydrate your skin. I don’t think you will find a more hydrating bath bomb than this one for the price, and I loved the scent.
Serum No 5 Kumquat Lime Cuticle Serum – Retail Value $6
This cuticle oil is made with jojoba oil, Vitamin E, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, and grapeseed oil. I abuse my cuticles and take nowhere near the care I should of them, so I am always happy to get more hydrating oils like this one in the hopes of one day applying it regularly. I enjoyed the zesty kumquat lime scent, too.
Sweet Addict Blood Orange Caramel Sauce – Buy an 8 oz jar for $10
This stuff is dangerous- it is SO good. I could literally eat it with a spoon, and I think it would also be super delicious mixed with cream cheese as a fruit dip. I wasn't sure how the blood orange would pair with the sweet caramel, but it complemented rather than competed. The blood orange was like a savory back note to the caramel, and it was so tasty.
Lord of Meringues Citrus Meringue Gift Box – Retail Value $9
There have been many tasty subscription box snacks of the years. Favorites of mine have included the Cinnamon Churro Smashmallows from the March 2017 Popsugar Must Have box and the Chuao Chocolate Bar from the February 2017 Popsugar Must Have box (for the record, Chuao remains my all-time favorite chocolate brand). But these delightful meringues may actually be my favorite subscription box treat of all time. The citrus flavors include blood orange, lemon, key lime, and grapefruit, and the citrus is light and perfectly pairs with the airy meringues. They melt on your tongue once you bite through the outer crust, and they really are just incredible. Lord of Meringues is actually just a city away from me since they are located in New Orleans, and I think I may need to take a road trip soon.
Blood Orange Diet Coke, 12 oz – Retail Value $0.99
I am not much of a coke fan, diet or otherwise (if I am indulging in a soda, it's usually a small-brand root beer or cream soda!), but I actually quite enjoyed this blood orange diet coke. It wasn't overly citrus, but it was rather like a squeeze of orange was added into some diet coke. I would drink this again!
The Verdict: I have never had a kumquat before, so I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to expect with this box. I am a happy camper that it was a zesty selection of citrus that included some incredible treats, and overall I thought the curation was great. Fruit For Thought is a fun way to see, smell, and taste different fruity themes, and I am excited to see what February has to offer.
