Fruit For Thought April “Fruit Loops” Review
Here is the card that gives you some more information about the items included.
2 Chic Fruit Print Scarf
What a fun scarf! This is more for fun than warmth, as it is light and airy. Printed with various fruits, the bright colors scream “Summer is coming” to me, and I could see myself wrapping this around my hips at a pool party. The fringe adds a fun twist, too.
Pure Bliss Body Confections Are You Cereal Triple Body Butter – Retail Value $6
This smells JUST like fruit loops, and wow when I rub this body butter into my skin I smell like a whole snack. Along with beeswax and coconut oil, this is made with mango butter, cocoa butter, and shea butter. This is a rich cream that would probably be a bit heavy during the warm months, but it is perfect for elbows, knees, and all over if you’re not going out into humidity.
Pure Bliss Body Confections Cereal Lip Scrub – Retail Value $3
This is a drier lip scrub that smells just like sweet cereal, and I have no shame in admitting I enjoyed licking it off my lips after rubbing them together. Made with sugar, shea butter, and coconut oil this adds a bit of moisture while taking care of flaky lips.
Sweet For Your Skin Fruity Rings Mini Bubble Scoops – Buy a set of 6 for $6 (found on sale here for $5)
These bubble scoops are mini bubble bars that smell just like fruit loops, and each scoop is enough for one fun bath. These created more than enough bubbles despite their small size, and I am always happy to receive a bath product that allows for multiple uses.
Fruit Print Hair Scrunchies, 6 hair ties
The fabric on these hair ties remind me of pre-wrap from my athletic training days- they're soft, stretchy, and they don't snag on my hair. I have been using them to loosely hold my hair, and I like that they don't tug or feel tight while still being functional.
Berry Sweet Plans Confetti Tassel Clips – Retail Value $4
These rainbow tassel clips came at the perfect time- I am currently reading a thick book and using the hardcover sleeve to mark my place, but it feels like one wrong move and my place will be lost. I have already started using one of these clips to mark my place in my book instead, and I like that they are large and will work for a variety of marking and clipping needs. Plus, how fun are they with the rainbow tassel?
These were included to remind us of our childhood and wow, the nostalgia! I definitely remember smelling these in elementary school before coloring with the pigmented markers, and I am happy one of my markers is watermelon scented- that was my favorite of the bunch!
The Crispery Fruity Ringlets Handmade Marshmallow Crisp Treat – Retail Value $6
As soon as I pulled this out of the box my mouth started to water- it’s a sweet lovers dream of fruit loops and marshmallows. This is definitely a rich treat that should be shared with others (but I won't judge you if you eat it by yourself, and I can neither confirm nor deny that I ate mine in one sitting), and it felt luxurious to receive it in this box. I have seen these for sale before at nice candy stores like Lolli and Pops, so getting this in the box felt special.
Froot Loops – Retail Value $1.09
Look, I have been dieting for what feels like forever, but my sweet tooth still misses things like sugary breakfast cereal. Getting a single-serve packaging of froot loops is perfect for me because I am able to indulge once without having an entire box of cereal calling my name in my pantry. I love them, and I thought this was the perfect finishing touch to the box.
The Verdict: Fruit For Thought always nails the curation game, and the combination of thoughtful products and tasty treats is a big winner in my book. The fruit loops marshmallow treat was so good, I love the rainbow tassel clips, and the bath products were of great quality from an indie brand. While this box emphasizes thoughtful curation over high-value items, I calculated a total value of $23.09 for everything except the scarf (the big ticket item), the hair ties, and the markers.
