CraveBox Cooking Light Series Review – Box 1 Starting the Year off Light

CraveBox isn’t a standard monthly subscription box, typically you complete a survey and if picked they send you out the box. I signed up on their website to be notified when a specially themed boxes and surveys becomes available. Recently, Cravebox has developed additional methods of obtaining one of their specially themed boxes. The first is through the purchase of a Series., the first series available is the Cooking Light Series. From the Cravebox website:

  1. Series Craveboxes are going to focus around one type of box or brand and will consist of 3-5 different boxes spanning over several months
  2. You have the ability up front to purchase all boxes in a series OR you can enter the drawing like a typical Cravebox for a single box

Crave Box tells you the price of all the boxes in advance (it is usually $15.00 or less) but you don’t get to know what’s in the box, just the theme of the box.

Barilla Pasta in White Fiber Mini Penne and Veggie Farfalle – $6.00
Yeah for Pasta with veggies and extra fiber, two things everyone could use more of in their diets! Pasta is such an easy go-to for the kiddo’s lunch so it is nice to add these to my pantry!

(2) Sun Rype Fruit Strip in Wildberry – $2.50
Great snack and the Kiddo loves these! These are actually considered treats in our house, they are 100% fruit and are great motivators for the kiddo. The only thing that could make them better is if they were organic!

Trident Gum in Island Berry Lime – $2.48

SnackWells Fudge Pretzels – $1.15
What a nice treat, Chocolate and only 100 calories!

7up Ten – $0.75

Belvita Breakfast Biscuits in Cinnamon Brown Sugar – $1.00
These smelled nice when I opened the package. They tasted pretty good knowing they are suppose to be a kind of meal replacement, but not sure if this would keep me satisfied as a full-time breakfast substitute.

Approximate value of this CraveBox is $14.88, this is the lowest value CraveBox I have received in fact, it was less than the amount I paid! I really hope the rest of the boxes in this series picks up on the value side, especially seeing that I prepaid the entire series! Until the next box, Crave on…
