Items from the California box were horrible, a redwood seed, bag of popcorn, pieces of dried orange, tiny coffee bar, and a small jar of peppercorn shower jelly. This is not worth the price. This is a rip-off.
There's approximately $9 worth of items in the Missouri box I received:
Cherry Mash (approx. $1/mash)
Red Hot Riplets (approx. $1/bag)
The Billy Goat Chip Co Kicker chips (approx. $0.75/bag)
Gooey Louie Butter Cakes (approx. $4)
Grace's Best Cookies (approx. $1)
St. Louis postcard (approx. $1)
The items are okay. Nothing surprising or particularly exciting/interesting. As a Missouri native, I was hoping to get some "real" Missouri items, but instead everything was from KCMO or STL. Things I could order online myself. The only thing in the box I'd consider uniquely Missouri is the Cherry Mash. The postcard wasn't even made locally in Missouri. Disappointing.
I'm glad I gave it a try, but I won't continue as a subscriber.
Absolutely inaccurate pricing information, nor does it accurately reflect costs of all the resources that goes into curating the box. The postcard was purchased from Missouri and we are glad you gave it a try also!
I ordered 3 boxes for my inlaws for Christmas, the first box was missing a few items they which out of stock and they didn’t send them later. Their third box was from Ohio, and my in-laws live in Ohio. This was supposed to be a travel box, not a box of food they can get at their local market. Really would have preferred someone spend the time to look and see where the recipient was located before sending out a box.
Sarah, we apologize that you had missing items in your first box, but we will ALWAYS rectify that situation if we are notified and given the chance. We cannot find correspondence from you addressing this prior to this review. We also cannot assume a box is not wanted because it's from a recipient's home state, nor do we have the resources or made any promises not to send a box from a recipient's state. Some people actually order a box or send a gift because it's from the recipient's home state. There is always the option to skip a month if you check our page to see what the next box is going to be if this is important to you. Lastly,...
The California Premium Box was a huge disappointment. See pictures. Postcard size is standard 4 x 6, so you can see how small things are in relation to that. For the amount of money (over $40), this is not worth it.
a package of two dried mandarin slices (crumbled)
trial size of balsamic vinegar
small square of candy
popcorn (seems to be a monthly favorite, probably because it looks big and takes up more room)
small container of shower jelly
grow-your-own redwood tree kit
