World of Munchies Snack Box Delivery Review

World of Munchies Snack Box Delivery – Review & Giveaway

World of Munchies Serious Snacker BoxWhen I was just over 30 years old, I had the opportunity to travel overseas and go to Thailand. I was young, and it was my first time being an entire ocean away that was separating me and my loved ones. It just so happens that I went a mere 5 months after the tsunami hit, that was triggered by the Indian Ocean earthquake. While I never traveled to the tsunami zone, there were plenty of other beaches and coast line’s in Northern Thailand that could have fallen victim. I remember being thanked for traveling to Thailand many times over.

On my first night in Thailand after hotel check in, my travel mates and I decided to do two things: the first was watch the traffic on the busy Bangkok streets and the second was to visit the first convenience store we had any recognition of. Apparently traffic laws are much more lax in Bangkok and despite being on the sidewalk, we were almost hit numerous times. Also, as luck would have it, the corner we were on happened to have a convenience store with the green and red coloring we all knew so well.

I decided to take this chance and purchase some treats and I knew. I discovered many treats that trip that had I not tried them, I would have missed out. Since then, I am always on the lookout for new and interesting boxes and I think I have hit the nail on the head with my latest box find – World of Munchies. World of Munchies was started by the mind of an 11-year-old entrepreneur. I can say when you see the selection and diversity of the snacks included, they are not of an 11 year old palate.

Taffy Town: Peppermint Taffy Holiday Giveaway

Taffy Town: Peppermint Taffy Holiday 2015 Giveaway!!!

taffytownWhen I was young and my parents divorce was fairly fresh my father and I would spend part of Christmas with close family friends. There is little I remember about this family, other than a few details. The first detail I clearly remember is that they had a long coffee table with drawers with these simple puzzle toys inside. The second thing I remember is falling asleep on their couch and magically waking up in my bed. The third and final thing I remember is taffy. There was a bowl full of peppermint salt water taffy and I remember eating more of it then my dinner. I did not realize it was taffy but rather very sticky candy – I was not a salt water taffy fan but I sure liked this candy.

Treats Box Subscription Review and Giveaway – Japan Box

Treats Montly Box - JapanThe one thing that having a review blog does is force the reviewer outside of their comfort zone, and experience something they may not have had they not completed the review. At least that is the case for me, each day my comfort limits are tested to some degree.

Something that I want to do in my lifetime that pushes those comfort zone limits is travel to Japan. I am asked frequently why Japan of all places, and the answer is really a simple one – to see and taste new things. There is something about Japanese culture that is much more adventurous than the United States. I am not in a position to travel the 5,600 miles away (but this could change next year – I will keep you posted), but I can still experience the food of Japan in the form of Treats Monthly Subscription Box.

The Treats Monthly Subscription Box is a monthly subscription service specializing in international snack boxes. Each month you will receive a different country and the items will range from candy, crackers, chips, cookies, chocolate and more! I received the Japan box for review and it was full of treats including:

The Ginger People Review

The Ginger People Review and Giveaway

The Ginger People - AssortmentAs I have mentioned in the past, as I get older I seem to be getting more sensitive in the stomach region. The newest issue I just discovered is that if I have any dairy after a certain hour I pay for it about 8 hours later in the form of nausea and sickness. It took a little effort to discover why I was waking up at 6 am every morning sicker then a dog, but now that I have I can work around it.

This is not the first time I have experienced nausea and I am always looking for ways to ease that feeling it gives. During one of Jason and I’s many discussions he suggested that I try some Ginger Ale. I had tried this as a kid under my father’s roof with mixed results and honestly reliance on a memory that is aging. I decided to give a try to some ginger, but I wanted an easier method then the ill tasting ale.

taffytownTaffy Town Review and Giveaway

Confession time: When I was young anytime I was offered salt water taffy I declined because i thought that all salt water taffy tasted like salt water (who wants to taste beach water?). Finally one day in my late teens I decided to try it because all my friends loved it, and a love affair with taffy was born.
