Goodies Co. is somehow associated with Walmart. It's a monthly subscription where for $7, they will send you 5-7 (mostly) full sized products delivered. You can taste them, review them and buy them on their site.  The subscription service is by invitation only. You go to their site and request an invite. I think my invite took about a month. 

I got the February box #7. 
A very neat, large box showed up unannounced at my doorstep. I love surprises but I knew what was in the box because there were several spoilers online. 
The box was neatly packed with a detailed information card. 
Plentils (the name is so off - plentils?!) is a lentils based chips. I liked these. It's gluten free and barely 100 or so calories. Perfect snack for whenever. 
I got two sample good sizes of Peanut Butter & Co's flavors - Dark Chocolate Dreams and Peanut Butter. I tried the Dark Chocolate Dreams and it tastes exactly like Peanut Butter with a very very faint hint of Chocolate. Not enough chocolate for my taste. 
Now this is Wai Lana, a Banana with dried fruit bar. Sounds Awful, right? And you know what? It was awful. The most awful thing I have ever tried and trust me, I have had semi-cooked snake and squid dishes from local dives in Beijing and this takes the cake. I hated it, in that when I bit into it, I almost threw up. It could not have found the garbage sooner. 
I have never seen Snack Wells or their Yogurt Pretzels before. But lil O really liked these. 
This is Bacon Pop's Cheddar Bacon Popcorn. I popped this easy to make popcorn in my microwave and it totally stunk it up. This popcorn has a particular smell (not particularly nice though). It just tastes mildly cheddar flavored with some weird seasoning. I didn't get bacon (not that I wanted bacon in my popcorn) and did not like this popcorn at all. I ate some and tossed the rest. BK and lil O didn't like it either. 
Chips Ahoy is more or less a constant at our home. So I wasn't thrilled to be seeing this in a subscription box. And Reese is not a favorite in this household - so I wasn't into this either. 
So long story short, for $7 a month I think I will try a couple more of the Goodies boxes. In this box the only two things I may buy are the Plentils and Snack Wells. I love Nutella too much to try Peanut Better Co. And the rest were terrible.
