Goodies Box May 2013 Review + Instant Subscription Promo Code

My Goodies Co. box arrived more than a week ago, but it's taken me some time to get to it - wanted to try as many of the items before posting the review. Take a look at what I received this month:
The box was quite heavy when I picked it up and once I opened it, it was obvious why. There was a full-size bottle of coconut water inside. Here are more details about all the goodies:

Zico - Coconut Water
I am a huge fan of coconut - chips, shredded, in cookies or granola bars - however, for some reason I do not like coconut water. I've tried different brands to maybe "find" one I like, but to no avail. This Zico water was not different.

Beanitos - Chipotle BBQ Chips
I'm always excited to receive chips samples in my subs and I like black beans chips. This specific flavor, however, was too spicy for my taste. Their website shows some other flavors that I'd have preferred and that do seem yummy.

Numi - Organic Moroccan Mint
I like tea - mostly for winter and fall - and I've tried Numi before. This goes to my 'tea collection'.
Bronco Bob's - Mango Chipotle Sauce
I've taken an individual picture of this as it turned out to be my favorite item in the box. I like moderately spicy fruit sauces - this has a great kick to it without being too spicy. I loved it on crackers with my favorite truffle cheese. Absolutely yummy!

Sour Power Straws - Pink Lemonade and Blue Raspberry
I've never heard of this brand before so I was curious to try these. These are sugarcoated sour gummy straws. While I enjoy an occasional Haribo once in a while, I guess I'm just not a fan of the sour variety and neither is my daughter, so I was indifferent to these. I really liked the packaging though...

California Olive Ranch - Olive Oil
I'd definitely try those for my next salad. We are fans of olive oil and like trying different varieties.

Super Seedz - Sea Salt
These shelled pumpkin seeds were delicious! I love pumpkin seeds and this specific brand had them just right - shelled, crisp, not overly salty. I can definitely see myself buying more of those!

Wholly Guacamole Coupon + Clip
A coupon for one Wholly Quacamole dip + a clip has also been included in this month's box. I love this - my family loves guacamole and I haven't tried this specific brand before (as I typically make my own at home), so this is definitely a winner.

Overall, I liked this month's Goodies box. The Bronco Bob's Mango Chipotle Sauce and the Super Seedz Pumpkin Seeds were my favorite items in the box - really delicious. While the list of my not-so-favorite items is longer, I am still not disappointed because I discovered some new great-tasting goodies. And, at $7 / month, this is one of the highest cost-to-value boxes I'm subscribed to.

Now, you can sign up for your own Goodies Co. box without the wait list by using code SKIPTHELINE.
