Blog Update July 2017

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry I haven't posted in forever but I've been more focused on my book blog lately, and I was sick for a long time.  Now that I'm feeling better, I will start posting to this blog again.  I have a review coming up soon for another Daily Goodie Box that I received and a couple book boxes (that haven't arrived yet).  I'll also try to post some subscription box deals that are coming up.  Thanks so much for checking out my blog, and if you love books, please check out my book blog, www.tarasbookaddiction.com

Have a lovely day!

Just Chill- Stress Relief Drink


I received this Just Chill drink in the flavor Jamaican Citrus (Calm + Focus).  This sparkling beverage helps to reduce stress, increase focus, and reduce anxiety.  This is a good drink for me because I suffer from stress and anxiety.  I really liked the flavor of this beverage and I did feel more calm after drinking it.



Coffee Blocks- Butter Coffee


Coffee Blocks are made with organic ingredients.  I love coffee so I was happy to see this in the box.  Ingredients include organic virgin coconut oil, clarified butter, organic pure vanilla extract, instant coffee, and organic egg yolks.  I thought this coffee had a great flavor and I'd buy these to have in the morning.



Nature's Bakery- Raspberry Fig Bar


This Nature's Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar was delicious and I will definitely be buying these soon.  These fig bars are cholesterol free, dairy free, kosher, and non-gmo.  Healthy and delicious!


Gorilly Goods- Organic Snacks


I received the Gorilly Goods Coast Sweet Curry Cashew & Fruit snacks.  These snacks were so yummy.  I loved the sweet curry flavor of the cashews.  These snacks are organic, vegan, gluten free, and non-gmo.


Aloha- Daily Good Greens


This Aloha Daily Good Greens is a chocolate blend whole food powder dietary supplement that provides nutrients and helps to give you energy.  You can mix this supplement with water, smoothies, or any meal.  I mixed this with a smoothie and I did feel more energetic after drinking it.


XyliChew- Spearmint


The XyliChew gum contains no sugar or artificial sweeteners and is gmo free.  I thought this gum had a great flavor and I'll definitely be ordering more.


Jack N' Jill- Natural Toothpaste


The Jack N' Jill Natural Toothpaste is organic toothpaste.  I received the Blackcurrant flavored toothpaste.  This toothpaste is for children so I'll give this to someone with kids to try out.


Vermont Smoke & Cure- Cracked Pepper Beef & Pork Sticks



This Vermont Smoke & Cure Beef + Pork Stick was really good.  This is a great snack to bring to work to have during my breaks.  Yum.  


Nellie's All-Natural- Wow Stick Stain Remover


The Nellie's Wow Stick is an all-natural stain remover.  I thought this stain remover stick had a nice scent.  I haven't used this stain remover stick yet but I will update this post once I've tried this out.


Nellie's All-Natural- Laundry Soda Sample Pack


The Nellie's All-Natural Laundry Soda made my clothes look and smell fresh and clean.  I will definitely be using this laundry soda again.


Dream Water- Sleep Powder


I haven't tried this yet but I always have trouble sleeping so I'm hoping this will help.  I don't like using sleeping pills and this seems like a better alternative. 


My Thoughts:  I was happy with the products in the Daily Goodie Box.  I love how many of the products are all-natural or organic.  The snacks I tried were all really good.  My favorite products in this box were the Nature's Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar, the Gorilly Goods Sweet Curry Cashews + Fruit, the XyliChew Spearmint Gum, and Nellie's All-Natural Laundry Soda.  I thought this was an awesome box of products and I definitely recommend signing up on their site for the chance to receive a free box.
