January 2016 Abuela Mami Review

        

Wow. Can you believe it's already February? Looks like this is going to be another one of those years that fly by at warp speed. The only thing I like about the beginning of a new month is that it brings a whole new batch of boxes with it. How bout we start this month off with a brand new box? It's the January Abuela Mami box!



Abuela Mami who very kindly sent me this box for review, is s brand new Cuban themed subscription service. The cost is $25.95 per month and each box contains a variety of Cuban goodies for you to try and experience. 


I'm seeing some food related goodies lurking here! I consider myself pretty adventurous when it comes to new flavors so I'm excited to see this!


The included card doesn't have a full detailed breakdown of each featured item but it does list them all. I hope they included more product information as they grow in popularity. 


Aluminum Cup with Lid --- I know this is simple, but I seriously love it! I honestly don't know if I have ever seen a cup with a lid like this. It is the absolute perfect size for soup and if I don't eat it all, I can just pop the lid on the cup and save it for later!


Chifles Plantain Soup Mix --- How about that?! A soup to go into my new cup! I don't think I've ever tried a Plantain, let alone Plantain Soup. It sounds interesting enough so I'm excited to have a taste test!


Keychain & Assorted Candies --- Strawberry and sesame candies. Yum. And I love the Cuba keychain made from a domino piece!


Badia Seasoning Mix --- I love seasoning and spice mixes! I'm constantly playing with new ideas and flavor combinations when I cook. I used this to season a chicken a couple of days ago and it was fantastic!


Cafe La Llave Espresso --- Coffee... It is the way to my heart. I seriously can't function without that punch of caffeine in the morning. It's been some time since I've used anything but kcups, but I certainly will not be letting this much coffee go to waste! It's wonderful!


Guava Paste & Fruita Bomba --- Abuela Mami suggests pairing both of these with white cheese or cream cheese. I'm loving the Fruita Bomba but I will admit that I am hesitant to try out the Guava Paste. It doesn't sound particularly appealing to me but I will give it a shot!


I love a subscription box that lets you have a little taste of another culture and country so of course, I really think this box has a massive amount of potential and I'm pleased with all the products featured in the January box. I enjoyed my little Cuban experience and I look forward to seeing what's in store for February!
