Yumvelope Box. Review.

Last month I got Yumvelope Food Box in a mail.  This is the other monthly food box that you can order on line.

What is Yumvelope?

Yumvelope sends out some of the best-tasting artisanal food products to their customers monthly. $21 gets you a large USPS padded envelope sent to you filled with a minimum of six full-size products, including snacks, drinks, desserts, and chocolates.

Yumvelopes are the newest way to discover awesome brands and find new favorite products. Be it dutch-process hot cocoa from a small-batch chocolatier or granola baked with Michigan maple syrup, there’s certain to be a product for everyone in each shipment. Unlike “sample” style subscriptions, you will always receive full-size products. Unlike “expensive” style subscriptions, your subscription won’t break the bank!

Why I picked this box?

All their products seem to be healthy.

They send you a lot of products that you can not find in any state.( I even got one granola bar from Australia).

Their customer service is great.

You don’t need to sign up for a year or 3,6 months, you can just try it once and decide if it works for you.

Here is what was in my box:

1. Caveman Cookies.

Vegan, gluten free, flour less delicious cookies. The ingredients are very simple: honey, almond meal, hazelnut meal, toasted ground carob. They are really delicious, but you can easily make your own ones at home. There were 5 cookies in the box.

2. Crum Creek‘s Mini-Breadsticks.

These are vegan soy breadsticks. Their ingredients didn’t make me happy: soy oil, wheat flour, corn syrup etc. They taste ok, but probably I wouldn’t pick them at the store.

3. Arizona Sunset Enchilada Soup Mix.

I tried these soups before and I liked them. I didn’t make this one yet, but I am planning to make it soon, and I am sure it is as good as the other ones.

4. Crum Creek. Soy Nut Mix.

This is the soy snack, a great alternative for nut-free snack.  It is organic, which is important for soy products, and it tastes pretty good. The ingredients are: organic non GMO roasted soybeans, organic chocolate chips, organic sunflower seeds, organic pumpkin seeds, organic raisins, sea salt.

5. Two Moon Shortbread. Rosemary and Sea salt.

This shortbread will work great with the cup of hot soup. It tastes good, but the only reason I won’t buy it anymore: the calories: 165 calories for one serving and this little shortbread has 2 servings. It means this tiny piece of shortbread is 330cal in total, like a bowl of salad.

6.Carman’s Kitchen Granola Muesli Bar.

The bar is made in Australia, which made it unique for me. It was a full size bar and it tastes as good as the other granola bars. Great snack on the go.

In general it was a great experience to try this food box. I tried some new foods, that I didn’t tried before, and some of them are in my food list now.
