Llwynog Says…

This is my first Goodies Co. Taster’s Box. I was really pleasantly surprised to see how healthy everything in the box was. I was all over the kettlecorn and the package was a perfect snack size. It was soooo good and the best part is that there are 4 ingredients, including the sunflower oil it is popped it, which gives it a really tasty unique flavor. I attempted the Cinnamon Cayenne Almonds, but they aren’t much my style, I can’t do anything too spicy. These taste sweet at first and then kick you in the mouth with an intense heat. I only ate one, the rest will go to a friend. I’d be interested to see if Olomomo makes any other flavors though.

I also tried to Coconut Cashew True Bar. It was alright, but a bit on the dry side. I’m not sure I’d seek it out. I’m terrified of the Zone Perfect bar, because from the packaging it looks just like very other health/protein bar and I’ve had far too many unpleasant experiences with those.

I’m keeping my subscription with Goodies and I look forward to seeing what shows up in May. Seven bucks is pretty inexpensive for a food box, thanks to the buying power of Wal-Mart. The program is still in the beta stages but you can sign up for an invite on their site.
