Sampler boxes are so much fun to get! I always get a regular sampler box for turning in 100 samples from Out of the box Sampler but part of the reason I do the 100 samples is because I actually like to see what is out there that other people make. I also like to see what other packaging ideas there are that people do. Regardless, I enjoy all the samples I get every time. For this month Out of the box Sampler decided to use a tote bag for their bodacious sampler box which I thought was really neat! Their bigger box is awesome because you are guarantee to get every sampler from everyone that is donating for the month. I tend to buy the biggest box for myself and have Michelle mail out my free regular sampler box to a friend just to brighten up some one's day. I like putting a smile on people's faces :)
In this valentine's box, I got 62 samples. I ended up receiving. lotions , soaps, bath salts, bath bombs, candle tarts, candles, perfume, a car freshener, dog treats ( which I gave to my dog danger already), earrings, and even magnets. I am sure there so much more but I just need to look at things one at a time. Some places have coupon codes to use too which is neat but I don't mind paying for the full price of their products! So much love and effort goes into their products that I see it when I look at every one's stuff in the boxes.
Did I mention my favorite part of the biggest box is the FOOD!!!!! yes I get to try all sorts of the food too, i feel like a kid at a candy store when I see my food bag. I haLabelsven't tired everything yet but so far my favorites that I eaten are Ken's Airy Crunch Peanut Brittle ( which is the best I have had, so I have already marked them on Etsy for future purchases), and Antoillier Chocolates sent Spicy Mexican Toffee ( which I have already made them a favorite too on Etsy) No the toffee wasnt spicy and I am not a huge toffee fan but the way this was mixed with chocolate tasted amazing ... Its not super sweet which is what I like, I am the Semi sweet chocolate gal so this actually works for me. I can eat sweet but wow I loved the balance of this and will be purchasing from them later!
On the upside to sampler boxes, I donate so people can see what I make. this has actually helped me get discovered more about what I do. So I do feel its worth doing these sampler boxes because i do get people that come to from there and let me know they found me through Out of the box Sampler. So its also good for promotional advertising :)
Next month Out of the box sampler having an extra treat box in addition to their regular sampler boxes. I can't wait! It's all about Food for that box so I will be getting one of those next month and be showing you what's in them!
