I guess you guys don't like bean tea.

Really love all of the snacks and it’s so fun to receive this box every month. Love the mix of snacks, sometimes the flavors are strange and I wish there were more sweets.

I love the boxes I get every month and each has really good snacks! I love bringing them into work and sharing the snacks with my co-workers. They’re happy and I’m happy so the boxes deserve a 10!

The day I get the message that the box has arrived, I’m always excited to see what’s in store. It’s like a gift on a holiday :)

Thank you to everyone who chimed in this month to let us know about their October Box experience! Doing this helps us learn how to make our future boxes even better!
