Fruit For Thought “Cherry Berry” May 2019 Review
Here is the card that gives you some more information about the items included.
We also received some Laffy Taffy! This box usually comes with a few pieces of loose candy, and even though it is a small touch it always makes me happy.
Michel Design Works Mixed Berry Oven Mitt – Retail Value $9.99
I love receiving useful items like oven mitts in subscription boxes. I don't have a cohesively designed kitchen, I have a mish-mash like some who are living alone for the first time (granted, I've been in my apartment for three years, but living on a law student budget doesn't really allow for kitchen redecorating). I will take all the functional, practical items, all of the time. I love the longer style of this oven mitt that protects part of my forearms (where I have been burned before), and the berry design is berry cute.
Designs by Katieleigh Cherry Druzy Necklace – Listed Value $15
Druzy style jewelry is becoming more and more popular and I am 100% onboard that train. This simple red druzy stone with a gold chain goes perfectly with my favorite thing to wear- black dresses! The next time I want to look like the coolest thing since sliced bread, I will be pairing this necklace with a bright, matching red lip (is it me or does the Huda Beauty lipstick coming in the July Allure box look like the perfect match?).
Lord of Meringues Raspberry Meringues – Retail Value $3.99
Lord of Meringues is a fan favorite that I have tried from a previous box, and the meringues are truly a delight. They are flavorful, light, airy, and provide a good crunch without being stale.
I like the delicate raspberry taste, and the heart shape makes them extra photogenic.
Nectar Apothecary Strawberry Blossom Tea – Buy 6 single-serve tea bags for $28
I love a good herbal tea, and that is exactly what this is. Made with strawberries, blue mallow flowers, lavender, and jasmine (all organic!), this is a slightly sweet tea with a good blend of floral and fruity notes. I actually decided to use this to make a tall glass of iced tea, and I thought it was a refreshing summer blend.
Subscribers also received this small gift, which I think is adorable and sweet. Small boxes like this one are so much more likely to add touches like these, and it really adds to the overall curation.
The Verdict: Fruit For Thought continues to be a joy to receive, and I thought the mini box this month showed a more affordable option to the regular box that still has the same great curation. The necklace is exactly my style, the oven mitt is useful, and everything edible was tasty. The value for everything except the tea bag and loose candy is $28.98, which is below the $36.94 cost of the box ($31.99 plus $4.95 shipping). I think when you add in the value of the high-quality organic tea, you’re closer to meeting the cost of the box. This isn't the box for you if you're interested in a steal of a deal, but if you want thoughtfully curated unique items that are of high quality, this is a great one.
