Spork Pack is a cooking subscription box with a focus on the gadgets, accessories, and cooking tools for your kitchen instead of just the food. Regularly $33.30 per month, all subscription plans are currently on sale, and you can use code NEWFRIENDS to save another 20% on top of that. However, I am concerned about the health of this subscription. They have ceased including information cards, sent me 2 less items than other subscribers received, and don’t appear to be answering customer emails. I can no longer log into my account on their website.

Cosomi Cookie-Cracker ($1.50) While other subscribers received theirs in new packaging, mine was old. Didn’t matter, it tasted fresh and the salty-sweet flavor was so good. I believe I ate these with a brownie sundae! I would totally buy these to have on hand for just about anything – wine and cheese, dessert accompaniment. Super unique.

Amki Sesame Snaps (50 cents)

Larabar Renola Grain Free Granola ($1.98) A nice chocolately vegan nut-based “granola.” This was good, not a suprise from Larabar.

Donsuemor French Almond Cake ($.85) Loved this! It was so moist and delicious, I love Donsuemor madelines but these took the cake!

Kyoto Ceramic Paring Knife and Peeler ($10) I found this very similar set online to base the price off of. I like these because they’re super sharp, but I will probably gift them only because we have a set of kid friendly cooking tools in this color scheme, and my daughter already thought these were for her – they’re not, they’re very sharp. If they were a different color I would have kept them (I realize that this is a very specific objection but I generally think this is a nice inclusion for the box).

Just Cook No. 19 Salmon Blend ($8.50) This is a great premium item, I loved the double lid, and it was super fragrant. I doubt I’ll use it on salmon, but my husband used this on some chicken tonight, which was delicious.

I like the products in this box, but it always worries me when boxes start sending out different boxes, stop including cards, and their website stops working. I’ll update when I find out more.

    I got the same knife and peeler as you did. But I got a whisk that I got from the January box and my cookie crackers were really old packaging too. I can still log into my account fine, I just canceled it the other day as soon as I received this box. It’s still showing all my info and that my status is “cancelled”.

      It’s really too bad – this box had a lot of promise. I get a blank page that says “error” in text at the top left corner.

      I just reset my password and it did let me log in. I cancelled, but I have a 6 month subscription.
