Monthly box of samples

Does anyone here subscribe to one of these. I started researching today as a gift idea for a friend who loves this kind of thing. There are a LOT of choices. Im actually tempted to get a subscription myself. Kind of a curiousity thing. Wondering if anyone has a recomendation for one.

  1. I tried and love graze! They are just small boxes and from england so there are some fun flavors (eaton's mess, curried rice crackers)
    I ordered for my coffee loving father and he can't say enough good things about it.
    Conscious box was a good idea but not worth it and they somehow screwed up my order, turned into a hassle to get my $ back for the box i never got.

    1. I get Goodies. It's fun, and all the things I dislike I give to my kids. I don't really buy many processed foods, so I find it worth the $7.

        My College2 love Goodies boxes-- and it's cheap and easy for me.

        I would love to see a list of other options.

      2. About what time of the month does the Goodies box usually arrive? I signed up last month and have yet to actually have a box arrive.

        Edited to say that I meant this reply to be under the post by Becca.

          They're sent in batches, I believe. I just got mine today!

            Thanks! I'll go out and sit by the mailbox!

              Ours have been wildly inconsistent in terms of arrival dates. But always after the 17th. If a box hasn't come before the 25th, there is usually an email from the company about delays.

        2. A little Google-ing found:

          Reviews of various monthly subscription services, online shopping sites, etc.
