    All my kids are adults now , none have children so I would have to pass on the kids box for myself, but would love to get it for a friend's children. I would pass on the chocolate box but the Japanese snack box is interesting and would love to try them. The most interesting is the foragers box. I would get this for myself as well as for my son whom already loves wild eatables. I already love fruits a veggies as well nuts and berries At least once a month we have a different salad that is with in our budget. I am always in search of something new to put into a dish and I think this would be perfect for just that reason. I love to pair fruits, nuts, berries and assorted greens as well as meats and cheeses to go into a salad or on the side that complements the dish.

    Thank you so much for introducing us to Bokksu! My husband and I ordered one box to try based on your review. We thoroughly enjoyed trying the Japanese snacks. We just subscribed for a year and ordered.some of our favorites from our first box.

    I want to point out that the Mexican chocolate isn't supposed to be eaten like a candy, it's supposed to be melted into milk for a hot chocolate. Although I've often used it to make cheesecake and it's delicious

    I heard about the Japanese bokksu box from Rachel and Jun’s channel.

    I'd love to see more wild food content. Maybe even get that company to spon/collab? foraging yourself can require a good chunk of expertise, so that box is a great idea.

    Can we have a video where you guys discuss what boxes you really have subscribed to personally especially since starting this series? To then discuss things like longevity and practically over the course of more than one delivery? Loving it by the way xx

    These are all super cool! I would love to see you do some twists on meals using the Bokksu snacks! I think it will be fun! Also I love the concept of the Little Cooks as well and maybe we can see the kids try it out. The chocolate one sounded delicious and even though the Forage box isn’t my thing, it’s great for experimentation like Ben said. Great video!!

    So, I went on your advice and bought the Cocoa Runners bars individually from their website, and wow. You’re right - why on earth do we accept the Nestle or Cadbury stuff. Honestly - they’re mind blowing my good, and I feel satiated after a few squares rather than a whole bar too.

    Hey, I'm Hispanic and grew up in South Texas. In my experience, Taza chocolate (like chocolate de abuelita) is best consumed as hot cocoa. 👍

    About the forage box: I live in the Austrian alps and we have a problem with illegal foraging of mushrooms on the one hand and legal export of mushrooms on the other. Organized groups raid the forests for mushrooms, sometimes illegally picking 50-60 kg a day (2 kg would be legal). The reason for this is the high prices paid in neighboring countries, especially Italy. But prices in Germany are high as well, especially for Austrian mushrooms. This leads to the absurd situation, that most of the mushrooms are sold in close by big cities like Munich, but also Vienna, while mushrooms from Ukraine, Russia, and other countries are shipped to Austria and sold in supermarkets on the countryside. For me that means, I either pick my own mushrooms (which I do), or I have to buy imported mushrooms with a huge CO2 footprint. I could drive 2 hours to Munich to buy mushrooms from the woods around my hometown though :D The most absurd thing is, that we have a weekly market in town where a greengrocer from Munich brings back the mushrooms from Austria, he buys wholesale there to sell them to tourists from Munich here. That’s crazy! And sending foraged products to big cities in individual packages does make it worse. People should at least get out of the house and visit the market in their city - less traffic, less packaging waste, less money to big corporations, and it’s a much better experience and keeps small businesses running. (I posted this as an answer to a comment earlier, but wanted to post it as a seperate comment, because I think it's something not many people are aware of. And it's important to me.)

    Somebody gift a chocolate box called Monty Bojangles. They're amazing, melt in your mouth and the taste is- chefs kiss. Every flavour is too good and I swear you'd finish the whole box by yourself in less than a week. 😆 I'll wait until I see a box.

    Nutritionists are not the same as dieticians, dieticians have medical qualifications and recommend diets based off scientific research. Nutritionists pedal supplements and either don't acknowledge the latest research or extrapolate weak evidence found in an in vitro/animal model level to a human level. Think turmeric protecting you from cancer. As much as I'm sure the maker of the kids cooking kit is well intentioned and the recipes are great, you should be wary of the claims of any nutritionist and seek evidence to support the supposed health benefits of these ingredients :)

    I Love this kid cooking kit because, I have boys and.. anyone with boys knows how they are a little more ballsy than girls. My eldest son has been in the kitchen with me ever since he's shown interest. I started by giving him his own pot and spoons and then he'd make his own concoction. Then he'd graduate to cheesy eggs.. really easy stuff. The other thing we do is grow our own fruits and veggies. So this is perfect for my house hold. My eldest son is 4 so.. he's still a little messy but having everything pre-portion is absolutely perfect.

    Was a little annoyed to see that the Bokksu wasn't actually $40/month. It's $50/month. It's only $40 if you sign up for a year of service. Wanted to give it a shot, but was having a hard time justifying $40, let alone $50 for something I don't know if I will enjoy or not.

    The "taza" is meant to be drinking chocolate.

    Doesn't seem like these reviews are being quite critical and cynical enough. It's all good having a positive attitude but it feels more like a sponsored bit than a review to help the viewers.

    I don't know how to submit a show idea, but I always wanted to see the guys, the "Normals" plan out a party for a kid. Cake, ice cream, drinks... Nothing too fancy, but they get to use teamwork and have a few days to plan and prep first. Make ahead and all that. Then deliver and set the whole thing up. The goal isn't about competing with each other as much as mission accomplishment. Bonus if it's for a real kids party, since there would be real stakes.

    Are we going to get a herbology badge put up for grabs at some point? I know the boys have been notorious for naming the wrong basic herb on occasions so a blindfolded identification badge and then a test to see if they can pair the best meat/food with use cases for each herb and maybe an on-the-spot meal to use two of the herbs effectively... that'd be a fun watch.

    One of the biggest things about some of these boxes, is that some don’t really push on how to get more of what you like. Such as the Japanese Snack box, you are at the company’s mercy as to what they send and if there is something you want more of, you have to hunt for it. And if it’s a smaller company locate in Japan (as an example), you might not be able to get more of it again.

    Love this video, really interested to see all the stuff that you can get through the post! I just had a blindfold battle idea, may require more work from prep team, but could you do a comparison video between instant pot and standard cooking (oven/hob) meals and to see whether the time/ease of the pressure cooker makes a blindfolded difference to the cooking?

    Taza chocolate is also vegan, for those who are looking for something like that. It does have a bit of a grainy texture, but it is sooooo yum.

    It’s a shame that the kids kit is all pre-measured. Half of the fun and knowledge gained is from weighing, spoons, sizes, fractions, counting etc. I get the convenience but just missing out on the whole experience.

    i’m pretty sure the “taza chocolate” isn’t supposed to be eaten by itself I mean I don’t see why not to, however, we have those in Mexico and they’re used to make hot chocolate, hence the not so pleasant grainy texture (sugar) bc it’s meant to be dissolved in a drink. Also, “taza” means cup, so chocolate, in a cup, hot chocolate. cool box tho.

      You are spot on. A place I used to work had most of the different varieties...tried them.all and it honestly has ruined me for hot chocolate. The round shape is so it fits in most mugs...pour hot milk over it...O M Goodness. Talk about "yes daddy"

    It's great that the Little Cooks box exists, but to hear the guys talk about how good it feels to know that it's a good product because the founder is a "nutritionist" is not good. By all means she might be very knowledgeable, but "nutritionist" is NOT A PROTECED TITLE! Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. Dietician, however, is a protected title.

    VERY VERY expensive. My goal is to spend less of eating well. I only see these as feasible for gifts. The one for kids is cute, but I bake all the time with my grandkids so don't think I need that. The Japanese snack one is scary, highly over processed overpriced carbs and sugar.

    The chocolate one seems like the best deal - single origin, fair trade chocolate can sometimes cost $10-15 per bar (for the REALLY good stuff), so getting something like this box means that you benefit from this company buying specific bars in bulk

    Just a reminder, in the uk nutritionists is not a protected term, you don't need to have any expertise to call yourself a nutritionist. Not saying that all nutritionists are wrong but don't just blindly trust them. The protected term is dietitian
