TastyIslandCrate Review June 2017 – Final Thoughts

TastyIslandCrate did a good job with their first box. There’s definitely some room for improvement, but they stuck to the Caribbean Island theme and provided a good amount of snack options. I really like the variety we received – cookies, chocolate, chips, salty, sweet……etc. The only thing I would have liked to see is a product card. I know product cards aren’t a crucial part of a subscription box, but when it comes to international snack boxes I find them very useful. I would also love to see different packaging going forward. A nice outer appearance can set the tone for the unboxing experience. I’m looking forward to seeing more from them in the future.
