Trying new snack foods – Commercials, friend recommendations, or try them yourself?

New Snacks every month - You can be in the KNOW with Goodies Co

When it comes to new snack foods, do you watch commercials, read blogs, listen to friend recommendations, or do you have to try them yourself? For my family, we tend to learn about snack foods through commercials and blogs. We might think about trying them if we hear then from a friend or family member who has tried them. But, unless we definitely hear bad things (and sometimes we even ignore that) we HAVE to try them ourselves.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Walmart Labs for Goodies Co. I received compensation for participating. However, all opinions and stories are my own.

Being a former review/giveaway blogger, I have had the opportunity to try many products and sometimes I still get pitches from companies to try their new treats. I don’t typically accept much anymore because I simply don’t have the time. For treats that we can’t find in our stores, or we don’t have a coupon for, or can only be bought online, I sometimes find these treats on other giveaway blogs and try to win.

This one time…on a blog giveaway…I won some neat little dried fruit treats and I was so excited. I hadn’t seen them in stores and I had several bloggy friends who were trying them and raving. I just knew that my boy would love them and we were on a super health kick so these were perfect. Then…they arrived. Not so good. I was sad.

If you’re the type of family who loves to try out new snack foods, but you can’t always justify buying it before really knowing it is good for your family, I have a suggestion!

Snack foods to try before you buy!

I have always loved the idea of monthly subscription boxes and I have reviewed a couple of them in the past. I think this idea of sampling snack foods in a subscription is just perfect for a family like mine. Just looking at the Goodies Co. Fall box, I can tell you that I have always wanted to try quinoa, but I’m afraid to buy anything in case I don’t like it. And, really, you know you want to try that Oogies white cheddar popcorn, right?!

New snack foods for the seasons!

If you like snack foods, and you like to be the first to try something so you can spread the word… Then it seems to me that Goodies Co. is right for your family as well. Let me tell you all about it.

Goodies Co. – Monthly Snack Foods Subscription {Taster’s Box}

When you subscribe to Goodies Co. you will receive a monthly box of 5-8 snacks for $7/month. After you try the snack, tell them what you think by reviewing the products on the website. By providing your opinion (and you know you will always have one), you will earn points toward a FREE Taster’s Box and other rewards!

Please Note: Goodies Co. currently only ships to the continental US.

As you can imagine, this type of monthly subscription is quite popular and you have to have an invitation to this program. But, seriously, don’t be discouraged because of course I have an “in” for you! You get to cut in line, cheat the system, be a VIP…

Visit the Goodies Co. promo page and use the code JUNEVIP and you will instantly receive your invitation!

Once you enter the code into the promo page, you will receive 2 emails from Goodies. The first will state you are in line for your invitation, the next will instantly tell you your invitation has arrived. This shows you how you skipped the line!

Tell me – what are your favorite “NEW” snack foods?

  7. What a bummer about those fruit snacks! Yeah, I’ve had snack “letdown” before. This box looks like a solution to that problem and a nice little surprise every month!

    • I’m thinking a few months just to try it out would be fun! My boys love their snacks so we might fight over who gets what… ;)
