Merco box, have you ever heard of it? I hadn't until this opportunity. Which by the way I'm so glad I took. The box is full of local goods, and I'm all about supporting local companies especially since we own one now. So what's in this box? A ton!! Lets just go through the pictures…

 *OM Power Bar(top left)- From the looks of this bar it's not my style. I'm not much a 'health bar' person, I'd much rather eat my fruit roll up or candy bar for a snack. I always look at the ingredients before I try something of this style because 1 if it has peanut butter in it, I'm done with it. I don't like peanut butter bars or drinks or smoothies, I know call me crazy. The 2nd ingredient in this bar is Almond butter and I absolutely LOVE almond butter, it's my substitute for peanut butter. After reading that I got a little braver and unwrapped it to take a smell. Smells yummy (yes I'm this picky). Next part was the texture, if you don't believe me I'm picky about food textures. I can't eat a lot of a banana or yogurt, I took a bite into it and the texture fit my fancy. Lets just say I ate it up after all those tests. Yummy!

*Healing Salve- To tell you honestly, I didn't know what a salve was so I had to ask my husband. After figuring out what the product was I tried it out. I was expecting it to have a smell to it because all Apothecary stuff in my mind usually does (but obviously I don't know much about this subject). This product doesn't smell. I was slightly disappointed at first but then thought, it's probably a good thing it doesn't smell so I'm not wearing a million different flavors. If you don't already know, I have eczema so I put a little on the spot that were slightly breaking out and so far so good. The thing about healing, it's not instant so we will just have to wait and see. Oh the product is a pretty green color, that's a win in my book.

*Fit Me Tea-Yum! I love tea! I love all teas! This tea is yummy! I'm a berry type of tea person so I went straight to the G Blend first. Umm I hadn't finished opening the package and the smell was just amazing. It smells so rich and just made my mouth salivate instantly. Let me tell you the taste didn't disappoint either. Can't wait to try the other ones. The packaging is also fun, I love the organic raw feeling. 5 stars in my book!

*Colombia Guatica Coffee- Unfortunately I don't drink coffee so I'm not able to review this product, but my coworkers are going to love it. They always rage about Colombian coffee, I'm sure the smell will make me want some at 3 in the morning when I'm fighting to stay awake at work. Can't wait to smell it! 
*OM Power Protein- If this drink tastes anything like the bar, I'm sure I'll love it. I mixed mine with almond milk, it smelled good. Tastes good, but make sure to mix well enough. My first sip was kind of chunky, but not bad just chunky. The texture was smooth after I got it all mixed and vanilla flavored. I love vanilla flavored protein drinks so my thoughts all together…YUMMY! I'm liking this OM Power company! 
*Les Madeleines Cafe- The 3 madeleines didn't last long that's for sure. They were soft, which was amazing because I did the review about a week after I received the box. So they were soft, they were yummy, and they were gone in 3 min! Thank you for sharing these yummy treats, and they are very well priced $3.75 for 3 of them. 
*Eco Treasures soap nuts- Can I just say I had no idea what the hell these were! I almost ate one until Jeff was like, what are you doing don't do that! I'm glad he stopped me it would have put a bad taste in my mouth, literally! So soap nuts, I've never heard of them before. I was reading the flyer that came with them and they are organic berry off of a tree that grows in the Himalayas. They naturally contain antibacterial cleaner called saponin and there are a ton of uses for them. Anywhere from an all-purpose cleaner to washing clothes. I myself have just used them to wash my hands with. I'm not going to lie I was so skeptical. How are these nuts going to suds up and clean my nasty lawn mowing hands…oh but don't worry they proved me wrong! They got my hands all clean and fast. So I'm keeping them, I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to use them on my clothes yet, they will have to gain my trust first. I'm excited to see where this new relationship will go. 
Not only are there products that come in the Merco box, but it also includes coupons. This box included a free pass to Downtime Yoga, $10 to Rodizio Grill, $5 to Our Childrens Earth, buy 1 get 1 1/2 off to Ballet West. It's a great deal and a fun adventure. Merco box has limited edition boxes available for Fathers Day ($35 plus S&H) and Mothers Day ($14.99 plus S&H). I could see these making prefect gifts for those parents or inlaws that are hard to shop for. 
Merco box wants to offer you 25% off your purchase of a box with the coupon code 'iheartutah' Please check out their website and support local companies! I loved this box, no lie.

This is really neat! I might need to try to find those soap nuts at my local natural foods shop. They sound like they'd be good for travelling!
