The theme this month was "Better together" and it features food combinations that are supposed to prove why some things are just better together. Here is what was in my February box:

The individual goods:

  *Peanut Butter and Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams and Smooth Operator single use packages: Whether it's the dream team combo of chocolate and PB or something wilder, this sweet, nutty butter is the way to go.  ($4.99/16 oz jar)

 *Enjoy Life - Plentils Crunchy Lentil Chips in light sea salt: Lentils and chips? That's not a combo you see every day. You'll be smitten with these boldly seasoned, protein-packed, better-for-you lentil crisps.  ($5.16/pack of 4- 8ox bags)

  *Nutty Bean ChickPz: Chickpeas aren't just savory anymore. Enjoy the delightful crunch of roasted chickpeas uniquely combined with just the right touch of sweet seasoning. ($3.98/ pack of 2 - 2oz)

 *SnackWells Yogurt Pretzels: Enjoy this classic sweet-salty combo in moderation with 100-calorie packs of salted pretzel rings coated in sweet, tangy yogurt. ($2.99 for 4.68oz box)

*Nabisco Chips Ahoy Chewy Chocolate Chip with Reese's: You love them each solo. Now experience the magical combination of Reese's Peanut Butter cups baked intp deliciously chewy Chips Ahoy Cookies. Double Yum. ($3.49/ 4.68oz package)

 *J&D's Bacon Pop: Bacon makes everything better, doesn't it? The unexpected hit of smoky bacon flavor in this light and fluffy vegetarian popcorn makes for quite a delicious duo

I was impressed with how fast the Goodies box arrived this month. They seem to yo-yo back and forth with their shipping dates every month. Sometimes it is around the 10th, sometimes the 27th. While I am excited to try most of the ingredients in this box, I was a little disappointed that there weren't any full size products this month. I'm not entirely sure that this box is worth the money for me. I probably won't eat the Lentil Chips or ChickPz. Although I will give them a shot...eventually. Maybe I am just bummed because I technically can't eat anything in this box. I am on a low sugar and low carb diet and while some of this stuff is healthy-ish, it isn't good enough for my diet. We already decided to split the Chips Ahoy as a Valentine's Day treat since we have been so good the last few weeks (and lets face it; we are cheating on dinner for Valentine's Day too). Other than that I have no idea when I will tear into the rest of it. Hubby is super excited for the Bacon Popcorn in the future when he will allow himself the mass amount of carbs that are in the package. I will probably eat the SnackWells in two servings so that I can have them. The Lentils and ChickPz on the other hand...not worth it for now.

I feel your pain. I would want a healthy box - protein bars, protein drinks, etc. LOL. well, not totally healthy. I just like easy drinks and foods I can nosh in a hurry that wont totally kill my way of eating.

Try bulu and the graze box for healthy. My allergies don't mix well with this box so I'm done with it after this month.

Some of these look delicious! You should definitely give the lentil chips and roast chickpeas a try if you're trying to eat healthier- those seem delicious and nutritious. But bacon flavored popcorn and Reese's chocolate chip cookies? YUM!

I would totally try the Plentils and the Chick Pz! The yogurt pretzels and the cookies are a given. I'm a bit skeptical about the popcorn with bacon.
