Cravebox: Coffee Lovers (Limited Edition)


As some of you are aware, I am a member of Cravebox – which is a subscription service that provides food based and beauty/health related items to their members.  It’s geared towards being a monthly subscription – but boxes do not come monthly.  Lately, they’ve been gearing more towards limited edition special boxes for members to request to be included in the drawing for the particular boxes that are available.  I received an e-mail about a Coffee Lovers box and I immediately added myself into the drawing since I am a complete coffee fanatic.
I received my box on Friday, opened it and I have to say … I’m a little bummed.  The box, in my opinion, could have been a whole lot more spectacular, especially for the $12 paid for the box.  I will use the products I received and I am happy I got sugar-free syrup since I have a French vanilla in the cabinet that I’m using up.  The coffee is also a repeat of the Cooking Light box I received last month as well as the syrup (except this one is in a new flavor).  I feel as though when I need coffee I’m a deal seeker by heart and I’d get me some coffee for $12 – not just a bag, cookies and a syrup LOL.  So, yeah, not 100% thrilled this time around – sadly.  End tirade.
Here’s what I received in my box:
          Tully’s French Roast Coffee
          Torani Sugar Free French Vanilla syrup
          Barbara’s Bakery High-Fiber Cranberry Medley
          Biscotti Brothers Almond Biscotti
          Biscotti Brothers Cranberry Blueberry Almond and Oats Granotti
QUESTION:
Have you ever heard of Cravebox?

Cooking Light (Limited Edition) Cravebox

I currently am subscribed to the Cravebox program.  Cravebox is similar to a Birchbox subscription but in this box the boxes are geared more towards food (and food related items), a healthy living and some beauty.  This particular box is a special/limited edition box – centered around Cooking Light.  I signed up to be included in the box availability drawing and was selected.  The reason I signed up is because I’m a Weight Watchers member and am always looking for something new to test out in the kitchen.  I know in the past Cravebox has provided magazine subscriptions so part of me had a glimmer of hope that that would be the case this time around.  The box arrived and I will say the one item I was most excited about was the Torani syrup.  I’m a huge coffee lover and I purchase my Sugar Free Torani syrups on Amazon.
Here’s what I received in my box:
          Perfect Pinch Salt Free Garlic & Herb Seasoning by McCormick (x2)
          Nectresse 100% natural, no calorie sweetened by Splenda
          Tully’s French Roast Coffee
          Fruit Crisps by Dole – flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Peach and Apple Pear
          Salted Caramel sugar free syrup by Torani
          Coupons, recipe cards, magnet, etc.
I’ve tried the McCormick seasoning in a dish I was cooking and it’s a good flavored stand-up McCormick seasoning.  The peach fruit crisp is mediocre and the salted caramel syrup is ah-ma-zing!  I’ll be trying out the coffee this week at some point and most likely the Nectresse sugar packages as well.
So there you have it, my Cooking Light Cravebox!
