The Item: KitKat Iyokan
The Cost: $12.90 for 12 pieces
Coupon: Use coupon code ILOVEUMAIBOX to save $2 off your first box!
Why I love it: Everything from the January UmaiBox was so good, but this limited-edition KitKat was the clear winner. It combined the flavor of a Japanese citrus fruit with milk chocolate and tasted like a creamsicle. A three-piece pack was not nearly enough!
Another Savannah Favorite:
The Cost: $9.99 per serving
From: Blue Apron
Limited Time Deal: Save $60 of your first three months of Blue Apron ($20 per box) with this link!
Why I love it: This dish blew me away. Not only did it come together really quickly, but it was also incredibly delicious. Between the soft jasmine rice, the crunchy radishes and sauteed snow peas, and the flavorful stir-fried beef, this meal was superb and about as close to takeout as one can get for home cooking. The gochujang mayo brought it all together with a deep, hearty spice. I highly recommend it!

The Item: Orange Chipotle Glazed Pork with Coleslaw and Roasted Sweet Potato
The Cost: Sun Basket is $71.94 for three meals for two people
From: Sun Basket
Coupon: Get $60 off ($40 off your first order and $20 off your second order) with this link!
Why I love it: The orange and ginger glaze on this pork was absolutely to die for, and I loved the addition of fresh granny smith apple to a typical slaw. This meal as a whole hit all of the flavor notes you want in a good meal- sweat, savory, and acid. This is definitely one of the best meals I have ever had from a meal kit subscription, and the best part is I could recreate this with relative ease.

The Item: Yellowbird Sauce Serrano Condiment, 2.2 oz
The Cost: $8 for 19 oz.
From: Vegan Cuts Snack Box
Why I love it: This wasn't an instant favorite, but it became one over time. It reminded me a bit of (cucumber) pickles at first, which was strange, but I have grown accustomed to it and even though hot sauce is not something I reach for often, this is almost gone. Thinking back, I decided I am a fan and am even considering going for the (large) full-sized bottle.

The Item: Mayana Cloud 9 Chocolate
The Cost: $3.99
From: Heart & Honey (NSFW)
Coupon: Use code MSA10 to save 10% off any subscription!
Why I love it: I love sea salt with chocolate, and this little treat also had caramel and marshmallow. Even though it was smaller, it felt so decadent! The crunchy fleur de sel really took this chocolate over the top for me.

The Cost: Listed Value $25.00 (Member Price $20.00)

Why I love it: Although I typically reach for a Pinot Grigio, I couldn't help but pour a second glass while I was reviewing this wine. I thought that the lemony crispness was refreshing and it was a beautifully balanced wine to enjoy.

The Item: Garden Veggie Chips Mini Hearts
The Cost: Buy 12 packs for $17.88
From: Bonjour Jolie
Why I love it: I have had the regular chips from this brand before and they were good, but something about these crunchy little heart shapes actually tasted way better than the original. Plus they are so cute! I am always looking for healthy snacks that I can actually enjoy and these are considered a sensible snack, which means they fit the bill!

The Cost: Buy a 1lb. bag for $12.60
From: Universal Yums
Why I love it: These truffles were AMAZING! They were creamy and crunchy and smooth with the perfect amount of cappuccino flavor. I am not the world's biggest coffee drinker, but I could eat a box of these! My only complaint is that there was only 4, and yes I say "was" because they were gone the day I got them!
