I was excited to be chosen to receive a Goodie box and once received, I was not disappointed. There was a nice mix of products for me to try. I also liked that the portion sizes are bigger than other sample boxes.
For March’s edition of Try It Tuesday, I decided to give my honest opinions of the products that I tried.
Here are some of the products in my February box:
JustChill – Stress Relief Drinks
I had the ginger flavored drink. I do not usually like zero calorie drinks because I don’t like sugar substitutes. I liked this because it had a strong ginger flavor which I think helped to mask any of the possible after taste of the sweetener. It was definitely refreshing. I believe this is best served cold and is a great alternative to ginger ale. I recommend it and would buy this again.
Vermont Smoke & Cure – Cracked Pepper Beef & Pork Sticks
These are pretty tasty and full of flavor. I think these make a good snack.
Nature’s Bakery – Raspberry Fig Bars
The pack came with two fig bars that are just a little bit thicker and wider than the fig bars your grandmother might be used to eating. While I could not taste the raspberry flavor, I did think these were delicious. I ate these as my breakfast one morning and was surprised how filling they were. These are so-o-o-o much better than another well-known national brand that I will not name.
Jack N’ Jill – Natural Toothpaste
I cannot remember using kiddie toothpaste when I was little. I am so used to using regular toothpaste that the first time I tried this, it seemed like it was not strong enough to clean my teeth. I realized that I was not accustomed to natural toothpastes and decided to keep using it. For example, I had to remember it was not going to foam up in my mouth because that chemical was not present in natural toothpastes. A foamy mouth is one of those things that I have always come to associate with “clean” feeling. Once I got over my initial hang ups, I started to enjoy the qualities of the product. This is a very mild teeth cleanser. Because it is all natural, I think definitely would use this for my children’s teeth.
Nellie’s All-Natural – Laundry Soda Packs
I could look at the packaging and imagined that this would be a quality product. I was not disappointed. These laundry packs cleaned my clothes like they I figured they would. I like the fact that this is a natural product. All natural does not mean I have to walk around with dingy clothes. Great stuff!!!
Coffee Blocks – Butter Coffee
I have heard so many good things about bulletproof coffee (coffee with butter) that when I saw this, I was excited. I do not usually drink coffee. Regular coffee makes me sleepy. I was hesitant to try this because of that fact. I tried it one morning…I. Was. Hooked. I followed the directions and it was too strong at first. Instead of 12 ounces of water, I used 16. It was still strong but not so bitter I could not drink it. I added a teaspoon of honey to sweeten it. I drank it at 9am. At 6PM, I felt like I was still hyped up from that cup of coffee. I had so much energy. By the end of the day, I was tired and went to sleep with no problem. RECOMMEND!!!!! I already told my bulletproof coffee loving friends that they have to buy this.
Aloha – Daily Good Greens
This is my least favorite product of the box because I am not a fan of protein powder shake mixes. And the only chocolate I like is milk chocolate. I mixed this packet with water because I do not like milk. I don’t know if that affected the flavor. I can say that Aloha brand was better than most, but I probably won’t be buying this flavor. Overall, it did not taste like minerals and vitamins. I think I could drink the vanilla flavor mixed in juice or a smoothie with no problem. I do like the fact that it is full of a lot of good, healthy ingredients. It would make a great addition to anyone’s healthy regimen.
This is was so delicious. Ingredients include organic cashews, organic raisins, organic coconut nectar, organic coconut, organic curry, sea salt, and organic cayenne. I have never had a curry flavored snack and was curious how it would taste. I loved it. Great balance of flavors. I ate it slowly because the small package was almost 200 calories! But the flavor made it worth it. I savored every morsel.
TOW Final Word: Overall, I am glad to have been introduced to these neat products that I am now adding to my regular shopping list! Let me say again that I am in love with Gorilly Goods cashew nuts and the Coffee Blocks!!!!
