This month, we celebrate the Holidays with burgundy paper! There is no info card in this box.


This box is FULL of goodies!


Paqui Tortilla Chips, Sour Cream & Salsa Verde flavor ($0.72, based on a $3.99 for 5.5 oz bag). I’m so happy to get another bag of these tortilla chips! Last month, we received the Cheese Flavor and it was gone in a second. I gave them to my husband who thought they were slightly stale, but good tasting. We checked the Best Before Date was November 7 2016, so I wonder if it was leftover chips or just an oversight.

Elan Coconut Smiles, ($2.99 for 125g). I’m not the biggest fan of coconut crisps/chips (but I love fresh coconut), so I was a bit disappointed to see another bag of coconut crisps (we had one last month from a different company). But I was actually very surprised by the taste! They are not flavored or sweetened, they are not fried or anything like that. They have been delicately toasted, so they are not crisp like chips, but they have a nice bite to them. They are quite good!


Yupik Organic Dates. ($2.99) They are sweet, chewy, tasty. They have their pits, so they are not ready to use, but they are a perfect snack. I try to always have some around, but I usually eat them all before I can cook with them. These will not be an exception, I give them three days top.


Meditree, Pure Autralian Botanicals Tea Tree Facial Cleanser. ($14.95) I’m so happy I can try this cleanser! I have an acne prone skin, even if I haven’t been a teenager in a long time, so this will be perfect! The texture is weird, it’s part gel, part liquid, but it foams nicely on the skin. It contains Tea Tree Oil, Willow Bark extract, Aloe Vera, and Chamomille. My skin loves chamomile, I’m very excited to see the results in the next couple of days!


St. Tropica Organic Coconut Hot Oil Hair Mask (5 $USD) This microwaveable mask is made of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Biotin, Green Tea, Hibiscus, Amla and Horsetail and will give you stronger, longer and thicker hair. It sounds awesome, but I’m not sure I want my hair to be thicker… I’ll probably give it a try for the strength part.


Mettrum Originals Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds (sample). Made in Canada, hemp seeds are an excellent source of Omega 3 and Omega 6. You can either eat them straight our of the bag or on a salad. I had never tasted hemp seeds before, and I was missing out! It’s soft, but it reminds me of sunflower seeds (I love sunflower seeds). It’s soooo good! Now I want some hemp seeds butter.

Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand &Body Lotion (sample). I don’t like lavender scented hand and body products, so I’ll pass on this little guy.


New Chapter Bone Strength Plant-Source Calcium supplements (18.99 $USD on amazon). This calcium supplement is plant-sourced and non-GMO. Also with D3 and magnesium. This is a great supplement for people who need to add calcium to their diet.


Pukka Organic Tea Samples. I love teas, and I just want to drink them all! The detox one sounds delicious, as does the star anise& cinnamon. The flavor combinations smell great and unique!


IronKids Nutrition ($6.67 for 4 packs, $20 for 12 packs on Amazon) I don’t care if kids are the target market for these ones, if they are tasty and I can find them in my local market, they are fair game. They are non-GMO, and also peanut and gluten free, so I can share them with my husband. And they are good! The base is made of puffed rice with a bunch of seeds thrown in. I feel like cheating while eating them. They are very light, slightly sweet, and satisfying. My favorite is the mixed berry (it contains cranberries!) Each bar is 120 calories, with 4g of fiber and 2g of protein. I see a future for this snack in my house!


November’s box was a bit meh for me, but December’s box was so worth it! I liked almost everything in it! I found new snacks (the IronKids nutrition and the hemp seeds), my husband still likes the tortillas chips, the teas are a nice touch (going into the Holiday Season with herbal teas is a must), and the facial cleanser is exactly what I needed right now. I’m really really happy with this month’s box!
