First of all, thank you Jungle Stand. One of these “tastes” blew my mind and I will never be the same. This was my first “tasting bar” and I will tell you right now, it will not be my last. Jungle Stand sends 6 sample-sized bites to experience each month. You aren’t told exactly what you are getting. It could be anything (edible). Scared?

Giving the Red Mini Peppers a Go
X Marks The Spot- Hidden Wild Card for the “Diamond of the Kitchen”
WHAT I LOVED
The Concept- I love strange eats! I think any true lover of food feels the same way. Anything new and possibly found somewhere across an ocean or two will likely delight my taste buds and make me very happy. I’m very happy
OLIVES!- Last months’ BAR consisted of pastries and the one before I *think chocolate and I didn’t expect olives. I LOVE olives.
The Game-Changer- My sweet South African Lover. The “Pepperballs” (South African sweet picante peppers stuffed with cream cheese) in this box took me to a place outside of my usual reality for a moment in time. They were delectable, exotic, sweet, crunchy and creamy. I am still blown away. The summary in the info sheet boldy asks if any of these tastes will “change your life”. Well YES it did Jungle Stand. It did.
Price- $9.92 with shipping? Nice. This is not just food. It is an experience. I would have paid $20 (shhh don’t tell anyone)
WHAT I DIDN’T LOVE
Mushrooms- I am very picky with my fungi and I just couldn’t deal with the texture of the stuffed mushroom in the tasting bar. There was only one mushroom taste so I could deal.
I can imagine I would be dissapointed if I just didn’t do olives, peppers or mushrooms but I do DO all that good stuff. This box is for the adventurous and I can’t wait for the next tasting bar! They should make this a twice a month thing. My husband loved it too. We sat here in olive heaven (a place that exists) for a while. It was awesome. He is getting used to me and my boxes so he’s usually like “Cool, you got a box” or something. For this one he was all like “What is this box”?…yeah, your welcome.
The good news is that Jungle Stand has offered to give next months’ BAR away to one of my readers. So ENTER. Good Luck
