Goodies August Taster's Box Review

This is my second month of Goodies and... eh... still not wowed. Goodies subscription service costs $7/month and delivers a box of snacks and drinks to sample at home. This company is an affiliate of Walmart (gross) so one positive is that if you find something you love, it should be easier to locate than the obscure products you sometimes find in other boxes!

Here's first looks of the August box:

Info on Box Tops for Education! Love it! My girls' school got over $7,000 last year from Box Tops! :)
First glance is a little fuller than last month! 

And the breakdown:

Nature Valley Granola Thins, $.60

Fiber One Bar, $.40

Pronto Coffee powder, $1

Poplets Corn snack, $.25

Mott's Fruit Snacks, $.17

Tangy Zangy Fruit Snacks, $.25

Hershey's cookie mix (full size), $2.28 

So I came up with a total value of less than $5..... For real. And, just to be fair, I got most of the prices from the Walmart website... This was my problem with July's box, too, that the value is just not there. You get points on the website when you review the products and can use those to get future boxes for free, so there is some added value there, but it takes a lot of reviews to get a single $7 box (5 points per product, 300 points to earn a free box).... 

We will use everything that this box contained so I'm going to go on and stick around for at least one more month. I'm going to need to see some major improvement, though, to keep subscribing! 

You can use code IAfbP2 to try your first box for free. Anything is worth trying for free, right?? :)
