Here’s the Box Breakdown
first look inside the aloha pack
Our first glimpse inside the Aloha Pack. Everything is really securely packaged!
what's in the aloha pack
Everything that we received in our Aloha Pack.
It’s a super fun and colorful collection of items!!

So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert details each item that we received
li hing strawberry sour belts
These are really similar to our sour belts but they have a distinct strawberry flavor and are coated in Li Hung Plum Powder that is rather tasty! They’re also a little less stiff than the version that we are familiar with. Which makes them softer and a bit more easy to chew
We shared this with the kiddos and they love them! 
Yay! This reminds us (sorry for all the comparisons) of the “Oriental Snack Mixes” with a couple additions. If you aren’t familiar – it’s like a chex mix, covered in soy sauce! Oh so yummy
Each cracker is different and hence – yields a different flavor. 
lilikoi butter
Oh YES! In case you were wondering Liliko’i is Hawaiian for passion fruit. Liliko’i butter is a thick and creamy spread that combines Liliko’i juice, butter, sugar and eggs. It is absolutely delectable and we are so happy to have received this really big (4.2 ounces SQUEE!) jar!
As you can see it almost has a pudding like consistency and makes a great topping or spread. We personally eat it right from the jar!
This tiny treat from Honolulu Cookie Company is a shortbread cookie that includes a pineapple filling for a crisp sweet finish! Not overly sweet and just the right amount of tart! Very yummy!
plumeria
This was our free gift in our box. The Plumeria (we totally thought this was a gardenia) symbolizes positivity and is used in leis and for many other special occasions. You can use these flower clips to distinguish whether someone is single or not as well. Worn over the right ear means she is available and over the left means taken. Only one question… our left or your left? Either way this is a gorgeous little accent!
filthy farmgirl soap
In love with this soap – a great Jasmine floral scent made with all natural ingredients, in their own words, “No Yucky Stuff”. We also love the package and the name – it’s lost of fun! 
We could look at the wrapper a long time. There’s a lot going on there!
dirty farmgirl vanilla smoochie lip balm
This 100% all natural lip balm smells just like vanilla ice cream. We love that it’s made with beeswax and a mixture of other super hydrating oils. 
This is a great everyday lip balm. Not overly heavy but offers great protections. And we love the package and scent! 

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Aloha Pack offers a colorful way to experience Hawaii without ever having to leave your house. It’s fresh and fun and we think it has LOADS of potential. The presentation is great – the box is adorable and everything comes exactly as it should. The quality is amazing. We are so impressed with the soaps and the Liliko’i Butter! The curation is awesome! We love that it isn’t the “expected” mix of items typically found in a Hawaiian themed box. And we have to admit it’s really interesting to see Hawaii’s take on different everyday items! This is great for someone that wants to see paradise or the Hawaiian transplant longing for a piece of home. We love this box!
As far as box economy we didn’t do a breakdown of each item price wise because we would have to also account for shipping (which would be – pricey to say the least) we think the $49.95 monthly fee is really great – especially since shipping is FREE!
