Little Life Box April 2015

Little Life Box is a monthly shipment of items that help you to try out items so you can try out healthier or alternative versions of things you use or eat everyday.  You will get up to a dozen items each month and they promise to never ship you the same item twice, though you may get a different flavour of the same item.  They are a Canadian company as well so that’s nice too.  Subscriptions will run you  $19.95 a month or less with longer plans.  They offer a purely Vegan option as well.  I went with their original box since I don’t have a preference towards vegan items. I have found that these boxes are stuffed full!

The inside is very pretty and you get the cutest blank post card in each box.

Under it all is the products.  Again this box is full to the top!

Grandma Emily’s Granola Bars-$2.50 each

The first  granola bar is a mix of pure chocolate blended with fruits, oatmeal and nuts.  It is a source of fibre and iron and contains no wheat.  It is a soft bar and looks really tasty. The second one is a tropical fruit bar. I’m not sure how it get’s that name since the only fruit in it at all is cranberries. They are a little expensive for me to consider them as a regular snack for the kids but I know there will be no problems getting them to eat this ones.

Three Farmers Balsamic and Cracked Pepper Roasted Chickpeas-$5.00

I have never tried roasted chickpeas before.  I’m not a huge fan of chickpeas in any other form but maybe these will be like corn nuts.  Okay now I’ve tried them and they are okay.  A little on the spicy side from the black pepper though.  I wouldn’t eat them by the handful but a few at a time will be good. I’m surprised.

Crio Beans Chocolate Covered Cocoa Beans-$3.94

These are really good!  They are covered in dark chocolate and have that awesome crispy center of a cocoa bean.  They are shockingly low in calories.  They are super high in antioxidants and that will be my excuse to eat a few a day.

GoGo Quinoa Dark Chocolate Cake Mix-$2.65

This mix is enough to make 6 cupcakes.  I had received a cookie from this brand in an earlier box and it was really good so I’m thinking this will be okay too.  I had never eaten quinoa before that cookie and didn’t know what to expect.  If there was no label on this you couldn’t tell by looking that it was not normal cake mix.

Camino Espresso Dark Chocolate Bar-$5.49

I’m sad.  I dislike dark chocolate and coffee.  My husband on the other hand will enjoy it.  I do like this brand of chocolate bar and the other flavours I’ve tried have all been fantastic.

Tea India Masala Chai Tea Latte Mix-$3.58 each

I love chai tea.  You just need to add hot water and you get a cup of deliciousness.  Suoer happy to get these.

Wow Butter-$0.05 each

I’ve had this before and it really is just like peanut butter.  With Bug in school now I guess I’ll have to start buying stuff like this if she needs lunches or snacks.

Ecotools Bamboo Cosmetic Applicators-$2.69

This is a cool addition to the box.  There are 20 in there with 3 assorted head shapes.  These will be good for quick times when I don’t have my big brushes handy.

Pure Biodegradable Cleaning Products-$0.50

There is a laundry soap sample and a multi use cleaner sample.  You get 4 loads of laundry from this sample and the cleaner is one capful to 2L of water so there will be plenty with that one.  I have tried a few natural products like this and find that they work just as well as chemical cleaners.  It’s nice to know these will be less toxic for the kidlets and I can worry less about them putting things in their mouths after I clean them.  They also included a discount code for the online store.

These cards are a healthy living tip and a note saying they have a Mother’s Day gift box.

This months box has a value of $32.53.  There were 13 samples and with the exception of the chocolate bar I like everything, thankfully Hubby will take care of that one.  This box had a bit more of a variance in items instead of just food products.  I’m really enjoying this box and have found some new things I would never had picked up on my own.
