It is always interesting to me to read the opinions of different bloggers. We actually rarely all agree on a box. Case in point: this controversial Cooking Light Cravebox. Anisha of Everyone Loves a Treasure was disappointed in the value. The box is only worth $8 and she paid $16. Lindsey of Renolyn Reviews doesn’t chew gum or eat carbs, so the box was pretty useless to her. I have no problem with this box, because it lived up to their promise to me of being vegan AND I did not pay for this box. Cravebox has a new referral program where about 10-20 will be selected of every person who refers another and be put in the drawing to get his or her current or future Cravebox for FREE. Apparently I was picked for this round. I have no idea how, but I am flattered and grateful that any of you have used my referral codes. I hope you will continue to do so for Cravebox, because I really would love to receive Book Lovers for free this month. Enter my username “kylajaclyn” in the referred by section at checkout. Cravebox still has Cooking Light boxes available as well as a Buy Now option for Axe Men Hair Styling Products. Don’t forget the five instant boxes currently available as well!!

I was extremely happy with the coupons this month. Usually I cannot use them, but I will use all of these. We got coupons for Trident gum, Barilla pasta, and Snackwells snack packs. As you can see above, the box also came with a Cooking Light mini-magazine.
First up is Barilla pasta in Veggie and White Fiber. I plan to take this home over spring break and make some delicious vegan recipes with it. I’m sure we can find something to throw inside of it besides just pasta sauce. The Veggie looks particularly delicious.
Once again we have a belVita snack, but I can finally try a new flavor. This one is Cinnamon Brown Sugar. I have grown to love these things, and I always eat them in a pinch when I don’t feel like cooking an elaborate breakfast in the morning.
This plus a Root Beer 10 were in the Resolutions Cravebox. It’s a bummer to see them again so soon, but I did enjoy them the first time around. When I saw the question about these in the pre-survey, I knew they would be included again.
I haven’t eaten a 100-calorie snack pack in quite some time, but I liked these pretty well. I like chocolate, and I like pretzels, so it was a good combination.
You know how I feel about SunRype. Moving on.
This gum is pretty great. It’s a flavor that I enjoy.
Cravebox Cooking Light Selects Grade: B
My Favorite Item From the Box: I can’t wait to make something delish with the veggie pasta.
Final Answer: The consensus is that Cravebox is beginning to lack in originality. This many repeat items this soon is not cool. I am mildly okay with it, because I like all of their go-to products except for SunRype. I enjoyed this box, but Cravebox is rising in price from $10-$15 a box to $15-$20. I don’t think I will be able to convince anyone else to buy any boxes if they don’t step up their game just a bit.
