I’m an easy target.
When an email arrived from Foodzie indicating I had been “chosen” to receive a free May tasting box, they knew exactly what they were doing. There’s a bullseye on my stomach and I took a direct hit to my soft spot, free food.
Unable to resist the temptation, (which happens a lot around snacks) I caved in and signed-up. The May box was free and subsequent boxes are $19.99, but I can cancel at any time. Ah, there’s the catch.
When you sign-up for the Tasting Box program, a new box of gourmet goodies is automatically sent to your doorstep and billed to you each month.
May Tasting Box contents
- Dried pineapple (1 small bag)
- Traditional Alfajores cookies (2 cookies)
- Lemon poppyseed and Almond biscotti (2 biscotti, 1 of each)
- Herb sea salts (2 packages)
- Pure Southern Iced Tea (1)
- Classic Seaweed snack (1)
The lemon poppyseed biscotti was divine. I wrote down the ingredients and hope to replicate it. The Alfajores cookies were okay, basically they are delicate shortbread cookies filled with dulche de leche. I’ve yet to dive into much else, I have this thing about saving stuff so it lasts longer.
Although I’m not sure if I can justify spending $20 a month on 6-7 snacks, after opening my first box of treats I haven’t canceled my subscription yet.
Foodzie is one wiley minx.
