The contents of the box.  I thought six food items was a pretty good number for a “mini” box.

Laiki Red Rice Crackers:  made with the bare minimum of ingredients, these puffy crackers rely on the natural taste of the rice to impart a hearty flavor.  Goes well with hummus.

PaleoLife Primal Cocoa-Nut bar:  this paleo-compliant bar boasts a big cocoa flavor, but it has enough sweetness to make a balanced and enjoyable bar.  I really liked this bar, and the texture was a nice change of pace from typical paleo bars, as it was drier and slightly crumbly, not a tough, gooey mess, though a bit oily.

Spiced & Infused Popcorn with Bombay Seasoning:  This is the second rebranding of this product of which I am aware.  It was formerly known as Mumbai Masala, then Cobra Corn.  It is now known as “Spiced & Infused”.  Perhaps they are cultivating a more upscale image for sale in healthfood stores — as far as I can tell, the recipe has not changed.  The corn is well-popped, and the seasoning is fantastic.  It is savory and packs a lot of flavor, but it is not “curry” flavored — it is bright and not too spicy to enjoy.  Worth a try, even if you are not a big fan of Indian food.  The packaging notes that it contains turmeric (presumably because of the anti-inflammatory and other health benefits), but the corn is not burdened with the musty flavor sometimes resulting from too much turmeric.  This is a great product, and I hope the rebranding is a sign that they are expanding their distribution.

Nourish Snacks Chili’n in the Corn’r:  ridiculous name, great snack.  The lime and chili seasoning is tasty and does not suffer from the artificial let’s-add-citric-acid-and-call-it-lime flavor that seems to be part of the chili-lime canon.  The best surprise was the texture — the kernels are crunchy and light, and none were tooth-creakingly hard.   I was able to crunch my way through the pack with ease.

Matt’s Munchies Banana Coconut:  Packaged like fruit leather hits on a long strip of parchment, these tasty patches went over really well with Brandy.   They are tasty and naturally sweet.  The bits of coconut provided a great bit of texture and flavor, as well.

RuckPack Combat Nutrition:  The name of the flavor cracks me up:  “Strawberry Assault”.  This sizable energy shot packs a wallop of B vitamins, as well as Beta Alanine, A-GPC, Theanine, Taurine, and CoQ10.  The blast of caffeine is derived from Green tea.

Salted subscription:  This innovative program grants access to a library of cooking classes featuring some of the nation’s top chefs.  Each episode is in full HD, and they even have a Chef Hotline for cooking help.  The box includes a 3 month subscription ($30 in value)!

I do want to note that we receive some complaints in the comments about this subscription with cancellation – it can be a bit hard to cancel, so we suggest using a prepaid credit card. However, we really like the size of this mini discovery box – $8.99 a month! Since we last reviewed a box they really changed the sizes of everything.
