What we CRAVE

Time for another Cravebox we received.  I will say this, out of all the craveboxes we've ever received, this one we were the most disappointed with.  More on the end of this post on that one.  Here goes.

The box was colorful.  I'll give it that.  

A little closer look at what we received.  

Don't let the cookie dough or double chocolate brownie fool you into thinking this is a candy snack.  It's okay.  If you were really hungry, you'd eat it.  It's not terrible but it's not all that great either.  And these are about 2 to 3 bites worth.

I know these plentils are just about everything free but that includes taste.  Yuck!  But I think the worst thing of all was the soy nut mix.  We all actually spit it out.  The girls' friend even said it's the worst after taste she ever had.  They give you some fake chocolate chip thing.  Trust me, NOT a chocolate chip.  LOL.  

This of course was a hit w/ everyone as it is candy.  Real candy.

These actually tasted like regular tortilla chips.  They were light and crispy and we could see buying them.  That is if they weren't $3.50 a bag!  And trust me, there is barely anything in that bag.  It's nuts.  

Bojan, who eats anything was a little reluctant to try these too.

Okay, if you are going to label something tasty, you might want to first try said tasty products.  I do believe they should have taken a vote for what people's favorite snack items are.  Taken the top five and put those in a box.  This was just not nice.  We like to try to go healthy on most things.  We eat a ton of fresh veggies & fruit in this house.  But every once in awhile, there's nothing like a sour cream and onion Ruffles potato chip.  Or Lays.  Mystic Harvest is not a household name for a reason.  I know many companies are trying to go "healthy."  But please, let's not forget taste.  And btw, this was NOT just me who tried these items.  I let everyone try including kids' friends that were over.  We agreed this should be on a island w/ castaways.  Just our opinion.  We still LOVE Cravebox but we definitely are hoping next month is better.
