Boxwalla is a new bi-monthly subscription that sends you your choice of a beauty, food, film, or book themed box every other month. (I reviewed December’s Beauty Box not too long ago.)
Here’s a brief summary of the 4 different boxes offered: The Beauty Box features non-toxic, cruelty-free full and travel-sized products made by small businesses. The Food Box includes artisanal goodies such as jams, chocolates, coffee, and more. The Film Box will contain two films along with inserts with detailed information on each film. Finally, the Book Box contains 3 books and a fun book-related product or accessory. You can sign up for multiple boxes or switch between them as often as you like.
Subscriptions are $49.95/box and shipping is included.
I was recently sent the debut Food Box for review, so…
Let’s see what’s in the December 2015 Boxwalla Food Box!
The Food Box box was just like the one I received with the Beauty Box. It’s super sturdy and has an almost… upholstered feel to it. According to their website, the boxes and the information inserts are made from tree-free paper that is handmade from cotton scraps. Very cool.
A peek inside. Love the little cake sticker!
The theme for December’s box was “Holiday Breakfasts”. The info card listed all of the items inside, along with how to best enjoy them.
Inna Jam Black Mission Fig Jam ($13.50) – This big ol’ jar of jam is made from fresh — not dried — black mission figs. It’s a 2015 Good Foods Award winner and the info card recommends enjoying it on puff pastry with a dollop of goat cheese. Since that’s not exactly vegan-friendly, I might opt for their second recommendation — eating it with a spoon straight from the jar. 😉
Blackbird Food Co. Salty Sweet Granola ($12.25) – Hand-crafted, small batch granola from Portland, OR. This is a sweet & salty blend of rolled oats, pistachios, unsweetened coconut, dried sour cherries, pumpkin seeds, brown sugar, and more. It’s 100% vegan and made with love!
Oregon Truffle Oil’s White Truffle Oil ($14.99) – According to their website, this is the only truffle oil in the US containing domestically grown truffles. It’s also free of any additives and consists of only white truffles harvested in Williamette Valley and olive oil. Unlike many other truffle oils, this contains absolutely no synthetic chemicals or gases.
Chocxo Guantupi Ecuador Single Origin Dark Chocolate Bar ($8.50) – A single origin dark chocolate bar made with heirloom cocao from Ecuador. This contains 75% cacao and is rich in heart-healthy antioxidants. It’s also vegan-friendly! If you’re wondering why it was included in a breakfast-themed box, turns out it makes an awesome sipping chocolate when melted on low heat.
Chocxo Organic Dark Chocolate & Espresso Bar ($1.99) – At first, I was sad to see that the ingredients on this bar listed milk powder… Until I received an email from Boxwalla letting me know that there was an error on the label and that it’s actually dairy-free. Woo! Good thing I hadn’t given it away yet. 😉
As with the Beauty Box, I’m super impressed with the December Boxwalla Food Box! I was happy to see that all of the items were vegan-friendly and although the box was breakfast-themed, I loved seeing that healthy dose of chocolate in there too. 😉 The overall value was just over the cost of the box, which is totally fair as Boxwalla is definitely more about the curation than “getting your money’s worth” dollar-wise. Again, a great box of artisan treats!
