There was no card included this month.  I researched the items to find out more information.  This month they included two kitchen gadgets and 5 snacks/food items.

For the kitchen gadgets this month they included a ceramic paring knife and Horizontal Y Peeler.  The items do not have a brand and pricing them has been difficult.  I found a $10 set on Amazon and another set on Kyocera Ceramic Knives for $30.  Not sure which is closest.

The food items included an interesting variety:

  • Donseumor French Almond Cake ($0.85):  This little cake was delicious.  My only complaint is that only one was included.  I will be ordering some of their baked goods soon.
  • Larabar Renola Chai ($1.50):  Can’t wait to try this one tomorrow.  Sad that I can’t find this flavor online, I love chai.
  • Cosomi Cookie-cracker ($1.60): I’ve had a different flavor and really enjoyed them.  Can’t wait to try this sweet n’ salty flavor.
  • Amki Sesame snaps ($0.50: I remember these treats from my childhood, my dad was always looking for nutritious options for us.
  • Just Cook No. 19 Salmon ($8.50): A Creole-inspired blend of paprika, lemon and bay that strikes a perfect harmony with the flavors of coriander, cumin and smoked chili. I will be trying this on their salmon recipe.

The February SporkPack had a total value between $23 and $43. It’s really worth it due to the new and exciting products you get to try out.  I found at least two items I will be ordering.  Can’t wait to see what they include for our March box surprises.  If you are a foodie like me, sign up and await these wonderful items each month.

Pairs well with stir fried meats and veggies. Mix it with pasta sauces for a simmer sauce, mix with ketchup for a dip..
  • Ips Egg White Chips in Sea Salt & Black Pepper ($1.69):  I have read good things about this snack.  Very high in protein which makes it a great filling snack.
  • Kameda Crisps Wasabi Flavor ($1): I immediately yelled mine…as we saw this item in the box.  Mike just laughed of course! I will be trying this out on our next cold front.

This month they included two kitchen gadgets and 7 snacks/food items.  There were some familiar items and some great new finds.  I will use and try all the items in the box and told my husband there was no way I was gifting the cute kitchen gadgets.

For the kitchen gadgets this month they included:

  • Joie Oink Oink Measuring Cups ($6.99):  Super cute cups, I have seen these before and I think they are adorable.  They are like Russian doll nesting cups in pig form!  On the site it would be $5 additional for shipping.
  • Joie Kitchen Devil Oven Pull ($2.99): I did not know this existed, how do I not own this already.  Will come in very handy when I get inspired to bake cookies.  The site would charge an additional $5 for shipping this item.

The food items included an interesting variety:

  • Jayone Jeju Mandarin ($5.25): These were a very interesting snack.  Just as the bag claimed these are very sweet.  The item is 100% dried mandarins.
  • Pacific Gold Beef Jerky ($2.00):  This snack will go to Mike.  I’m not a huge beef jerky fan and he needs the extra protein as a cyclist.  I’m sure he will enjoy this lowfat treat.
  • Popbar Hot Chocolate on a Stick ($2.99): I immediately yelled mine…as we saw this item in the box.  Mike just laughed of course! I will be trying this out on our next cold front.
  • Nature’s Bakery Blueberry Fig Bar ($1.00): Mike and I love these bars.  We buy the big box at Sam’s Club and fight over the last one.  These are delicious non-GMO treats.
  • Crunchies cinnamon apple ($1.99):  This snack will be a great sweet treat for our packed lunches.  These are also available in other fruits.
  • Organicasaurus Cheddar Cheese ($1.50): These are made by Good Boys which also produces Bops chips.  We are adding this to our snack drawer.  Christmas time will bring several nieces and nephews for visits and I will feel great giving them a healthy treat.
  • Clif Kid Z-Bar Iced Oatmeal Cookie ($1.00):  Mike will use this snack on one of his weekend bike rides.  He loves most of the Clif snacks and won’t care that it’s supposed to be for Kids.

This month they included two kitchen gadgets and 5 snacks/food items.  I was familiar with several of the brands.  I was still unsure how they items are related to one another.  The good thing is that I know that I will use and try all the items in the box

For the kitchen gadgets this month they included:

  • Oggi Spring Loaded Tea Infuser ($10):  I will be using this item at work.  I use a lot of loose tea in our home and feel that it tastes better.  I was going to look for a good tea infuser to use at work.
  • Kikkerland Handheld Pepper Grinder ($9.34): This is a nice little gadget to use when we pack salads for work.  I haven’t tried it out yet, not sure I would go and buy an item like this.

The food items included:

  • Bamboo Lane crunchy rice rollers ($5.99): I’m curious to try these alone and with peanut butter.  Nutritious snack options always welcome in our home. (Low fat, low sodium, gluten free, and vegan.)
  • 180 Snacks Trail Mix Crunch ($1.50):  I’ve tried other snacks by this brand and they never disappoint. (Gluten free, vegan, and kosher)
  • That’s It fruit bar ($2): Mike and I both love fruit bars, wish there were two to share.  I will try this out next week.  These bars are non-GMO with no sugar added.  (Gluten free, vegan, and fat free)
  • Choco-Pie ($0.37): I’m looking forward to trying this yummy treat.  They remind me of a childhood favorite with it’s marshmallow center and chocolate coating.
  • Lucas Salsagheti ($0.45):  These candies are very popular here on the border.  They are spicy watermelon flavored tamarind candy similar to Sour Punch Straws.  This is not a new discovery for us, but I’m sure other subscribers will like this new find.

The October SporkPack had a total value of about $29 which right around the price of the box. This has not been my favorite box but it is still one of my favorite subscription boxes! Looking forward to the November box surprises.  If you are a foodie like me, sign up and await these wonderful items each month.

There were two delicious snacks included this month.  The first was a freeze dried Nature’s All organic corn retail for $9.27 and can be found for as low as $5.99.  This was surprisingly delicious! It was airy and tasted just like sweet corn…mmmm.  Great nutritious snack.  The second was a bag of Himalania dark chocolate goji berries.  Right up my alley, I love chocolate covered raisins so this is a big hit for me.  These have a retail value of $5.68

For the kitchen gadgets this month I felt they did a great job with two Oggi items.  The first is an Oggi double bubble hand blown oil and vinegar cruet.  I won’t really use this item much and I will be using this as part of my mom’s birthday present later this month.  This retails for $14.17 on Amazon with prime shipping available.

The second item is all mine.  It is an Oggi sugar and creamer set that I really needed.  The creamer I have is difficult to wash.  Everyone who comes over loves my coffee and I know this will get plenty of use.  This retails for $14.79 on Amazon with prime shipping available.

This Jem Sweet chocolate crumble is delectable.  It was definitely melted due to the South Texas heat.  It’s still yummy right out of the jar.  Can’t wait to add this to vanilla bean ice cream.  I may need to purchase the espresso crumble and try it out too.  The price on this item is $8.00.

The Chimes ginger chews were delicious.  The size of the bag was perfect to share and it was nice that they were individually wrapped.  They have a spicy hint from the ginger and the peanut flavor compliments perfectly.  The price for the chews is $1.75.

For the kitchen gadgets this month they included three Island Bamboo Hue utensils.  The first is a silicone spoonula MSRP $12.33 (Amazon for $7.72).  The next item was a silicon angled spatula MSRP $14.50 (Amazon for $7.79). The last item was a silicone basting brush MSRP $14.30 (Amazon for $7.72).  I will use all three utensils from this box and I really like the red silicone, adds a pop of color to my kitchen and can withstand 450F.
