Fruit For Thought June 2019 “Lemonade” Review

Fruit For Thought June 2019 lemonheads

This box comes with an info sheet every month, but I was a bad blogger and forgot to include it. You can always expect some type of small bonus candy, and this month it was this cute box of Lemonheads that I promptly devoured.

June Clever Lemon Dish Towel - Retail Value $12

My kitchen is slowly being fully outfitted through the items sent in this box, and I am a-okay with that. This lemon printed dish towel features the phrase "easy peasy lemon squeezy," and it features a sewn-in loop that keeps it from falling off the handle. This is made of 100% cotton and is machine washable, which is an absolute must for me.

Scrub It Pink Lemonade Body Scrub, 4 oz - Estimated Value $5 (Buy the 16 oz version for $20)

This scrub smells exactly like pink lemonade, which was my drink of choice growing up. Along with smelling like nostalgia, this scrub is on the drier side so it really helps to buff away dry skin. Ingredients include sea salt, coconut oil, and vitamin E.

Grey Ghost Bakery Lemon Sugar Cookies, 2 cookies - Buy 6 sample packs for $11.99

This box always brings the tastiest snacks, and these lemon sugar cookies were no exception. They had a nice crunch without being stale or too hard, and the candied lemon zest really balanced the sweetness you expect from a cookie.

Voesh New York Pedi in a Box in Lemon Quench - Listed Value $4.40

Can someone please explain to me how in my many years of receiving subscription boxes I have never gotten a pedi in a box before? This is awesome! It contains four steps: a salt soak, a sugar scrub, a mud mask, and a massage cream. I don't pay nearly enough attention to my feet as I do the rest of my body so I appreciate that this lets me pamper myself in a new way, and I loved the refreshing citrus scent.

Fruit For Thought June 2019 steamers

Basik Bath & Body Shower Steamer in Lemonade - Estimated Value $3 (based on shower steamers offered here)

Basik Bath & Body Shower Steamer in Pink Lemonade - Estimated Value $3 (based on shower steamers offered here)

I love shower steamers and believe they are underutilized and underappreciated. These bad boys smelled exactly like a fresh glass of lemonade, and while the instructions say each steamer is good for one 5-7 minute shower mine lasted much longer than that.

Michel Design Works Lemon Serving Set - Estimated Value $12.99 (based on a similar style here)

Would you believe me if I told you I didn't previously own a serving set before this pair? It's the truth! I am happy to be one step closer to being a functioning adult with this lemon-themed melamine serveware, and I think tossing salads together is going to be much easier now. Plus, they're dishwasher safe, which is a must in my apartment.

The Verdict: Fruit For Thought always nails the curation game, and I love that I can always expect my box to have a tasty treat. The lemonade theme this month was a lot of fun, and this box was a great mix of practical items and self-care. This box emphasizes thoughtful curation over high-value items, and I calculated a total value of $40.39 for everything except the cookies.

Fruit For Thought has a new fruit (or sometimes vegetable) theme each month. We curate hard to find and artisan items, with scents, flavors and colors to go with each theme. We send it with a gift like presentation and pride ourselves on curation vs. value.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

I ordered my FFT box on July 9th. When can I expect my box? It was supposed to be a gift and I had requested immediate shipping. Now it is too late. Was there some kind of a problem?

Hi Bev,
We spoke to you directly and resolved this for you! You subscribed after we had already sold out of July so you would have started with the August box, so we were happy to give you a refund.

I’d never personally subscribe to this box. The value of the items themselves/ themes aren’t something I’m into.

I’d rather save my $50 or even blow it at the 99cent store and feel as if I got my money worth/ happiness in.

I sub to Goddess Provisions, now I’m with that box for the “curation” I get things I normally wouldn’t buy that are unique plus value feels there for me over all most times. I get to try & see new things.

Now if people actually feel that way about this box that is awesome if it brings happiness into someone’s life like that.

But I feel mass majority would rather have a $50 shopping spree at the Dollar Tree without guilt if given a choice between the two.

I’m not sure how this box has 3.5 stars. To each is their own.

Stick with Fab Fit Fun.

I like this so much better than fab fit fun, but you’re right, it’s very niche. If you like cute fruity themed things, with some of them created by actual artists then supplemented with mass produced items, this is for you. If you’re not into fruity themes, probably not.

But his box continues to sell out every month, and its curator works really hard to keep providing a lovely sensory experience. This box is a labor of love from its owner, who also personally provides top-notch customer service.

Cute… but would not pay more for a box than the contents are worth. I can put a theme together myself.. looking for value, high quality and items of interest

Interesting they had Basik products, I wonder if this box has the same owners as Dot Boxx?

I’ve received Basik in 2 other subscription boxes and ordered lotion and body wash from them. They are not owned by either.

I can not get my head around the favorable reviews for a box that so frequently costs more than the RV when M S A so clearly points out lack of value in other boxes.

I completely agree with you. I saw this review and thought to myself “highway robbery”. You can get lemon kitchen towels at Dollar Tree, and lemon printed utensils at target for cheaper. Not to mention, when those are your highest priced items, the box is a dud.

My thoughts exactly! Why are they giving this box a pass when there is so little value for such a high price? Not a good value at all and goods that are easily found in dollar stores.

If you read “the verdict” it clearly states curation over value.

Yes, and this is the only box they seem to consistently give a pass to for this. Even Robb Vices who has done some phenomenal curation gets torn to shreds when the value is anywhere near as low as the cost yet this box gets weirdly glowing reviews.

how many boxes do we see that favor curation over value, when the value is this much below the cost of the box? Profit margin high on this one.

Because Pamela the lady who owns and runs this box was a major msa fan girl on the forums when it was still around.
