Influenster Pumpkin VoxBox

A few months ago I signed up for Influenster. From their FAQ page: ‘Infuenster is a product disovery platform that lets opinionated, social media savvy consumers like you discover and share knowledge on products through sampling, reviews, and more!’ I’m still trying to get the hang of it, but it’s a fun place to browse. Then one day I came home to this pretty pink package sitting on my doorstep. After I put away my tons of groceries I dug into this box with my son.

Werther’s Original Soft Caramels

First up is the Werther’s Original Soft Caramels. I try my best to stay away from sweets, but every once in a while they get the best of me. I’ve never tried the Werther’s Original Soft Caramels before getting this sample, but I have tried their hard candies. I definitely prefer the Soft Caramels. They were in fact nice and soft. Very rich caramel flavor too. I make a very tasty caramel filled cookie that these would probably compliment nicely. A lot of the other soft caramels aren’t nearly as soft as these.

The goodness knows snack squares was a nice little surprise. I was really hoping to be able to try the peach & cherry, almond, dark chocolate flavor and that’s exactly what I got. It was surprisingly very good. I hate dark chocolate so I was a little hesitant, but I don’t mind it in these snack squares. It really works with the almonds and fruit flavors. The squares are chewy and textured. I love the large chunks of almonds. I sort of feel like I’m eating something I’ll regret later on, but at only 150 calories and 12 grams of sugar that just isn’t the case. They’re right up there with my go-to bars.

I’ll definitely look for these the next time I’m out. Especially for my son. He loved them just as much as I did. His after school snacks are mostly limited to fruit and some sort of nut butter or healthy(ish) snack bars. I usually have to buy 2 different kinds of bars, but this is one snack we can share together.

I’ve been a fan of Popchips for a while. I don’t usually eat chips, but once in a while I find myself wanting some. Popchips are light and airy. They’re never greasy or overly salty. While the Sea Salt flavor isn’t overly exciting to me, there are so many different flavors to choose from. The problem? I can never find the flavors I want to try. I’m looking at you, Sweet Potato! I also want to try the Boardwalk Kettle Corn. I can see myself going crazy trying to track these down.

I don’t think I’ve ever used Downy products before. The Ultra Downy Fabric Softener I received is the April Fresh scent. It smells so nice! It was the first thing I smelled when I opened the box. I used it just this morning to wash my bedding. It really does smell nice and fresh. I’m used to using just dryer sheets, but aside from leaving a strong smell on my clothes and bedding I don’t notice anything different. The Ultra Downy did leave my bedding feeling softer without an overwhelming scent.

My son is enjoying the Mr. Sketch Scented Marker. Thank goodness it’s washable. Although he’s come a long way and no longer tries to color on the TV. Yes, he actually did that. All I could do was make my best Jim Halpert face and vowed to never use the restroom while he was awake ever again.

I’ll be doing reviews for the Yucatan Guacamole and Alexia products this week. I’ve been wanting to post a few food related posts for a while. There’s a nice sweet potato nacho recipe I’ve been wanting to try and the guys of the household want some fancy waffle fries and gravy. Tis the season for comfort food?

Overall this was a pretty interesting box. There were a few new to me items that I was excited to test out. And it was nice to be able to enjoy some old favorites.

*I received these products complimentary. I was not paid or compensated in any way to write this review. All opinions are completely my own.
