Just as curated online content is the next big thing in digital publishing so is curated boxes of all sorts of goodies and stuff for every other aspect of life.
That’s right, companies are taking the thinking out of everything from clothes shopping to snacking.
This year, Silicon-Valley based Stitch Fix closed $12 million funding for its curated lux clothing boxes, joining the likes of Quarterly and Fancy.
They all take off from the curated snack box trend that include the likes of Graze, Fruit Guys, Conscious Box and others which were the hot trend about a decade ago.
Our staff and family tore into the curated box of wholesome, organic, gluten-free snacks that are delivered each month to subscription customers at $10 for a small box and $17 monthly for a large deluxe one.
And the plus is for each box delivered, donation goes to provide a meal to a hungry child at a local food bank. The company says it has donated over 255,000 meals to date. Sweet!
[After all, the Social Good Summit is around the corner.]
Each month has a theme and last month was “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” just in time for Major League Baseball‘s season opening. Check out the company’s website for more information on the unique, hard-to-find tasty snacks which varies based on seasonal themes.
And they weren’t joking about the “hard to find” part either. We hoofed through our town with the coupons that come in each box to get more of the yummy snacks after we demolished our complimentary samples, and that was a feat itself.
We gave up and went online. I guess that’s the point; no need to do all that work when we can just order a subscription and have our snacks come to us!
