It seems like subscription boxes are all the rage these days. I am a frequent Stitch Fix user, I’ve tried Blue Apron, and recently I got to try a couple of Yumvelope boxes to review. Yumvelope is a monthly subscription service that delivers a box of 6 different artisanal food products.
The thing that’s great about the Yumvelope boxes is that no two are the same. I received a box in June and one in July and they both had very different items which was fun! The June box contained the following:
Madecasse Dark Chocolate with Salted Almonds
Gilded Nut Co. Salt and Pepper Pistachios
My three favorites in the June box were definitely the granola, the dark chocolate and the salt and pepper pistachios. The granola made for a great afternoon snack at work, and I loved how the dark chocolate was made from bean to bar in Africa.
I couldn’t have the popcorn so I gave it to the Englishman, and while the energy bar was good, it was a bit too dense to eat in one sitting.
The July box contained a different assortment of goodies, including:
Bart’s Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies
Again, I passed the popcorn off to the Englishman (it wasn’t his fave), but the Beanfields chips were free of corn and soy which was great! The banana drink was good (I think it would go great in a smoothie) and the chocolate chip cookies were a nice afternoon treat!
I really like the concept of the Yumvelope boxes – you get a chance to try products from brands that you wouldn’t normally try/see in stores which is awesome. Unfortunately you can’t list any dietary preferences, so it’s always a gamble to see what will pop up in your box next (which can be part of the fun!)
Thanks for letting me try out some delicious new snacks Yumvelope! I’ll definitely be buying more of that Madcasse chocolate in the near future.
