MixtBag tortilla chips

For lunch today, we made nachos with some leftover taco meat, cabot sharp cheddar cheese and MixtBag tortilla chips.

RW Garcia makes a special recipe tortilla, the MixtBag that we received from our March 2012 Conscious Box has yellow and blue tortilla chips.

What makes these chips different is that they are all natural, contain no trans fats and are gluten free. We don’t have any food allergies but we always like to try new things. 

The real test is asking Lizzy (she’s almost 5) what she thought about the chips. 

Lizzy says, “The chips are tasty and really crunchy, and not too salty.” 

What I liked about them is the list of ingredients- everything can be pronounced: stone ground yellow corn, stone ground blue corn, sunflower oil or corn oil, sea salt, water and a trace of lime. 

So thanks to the Conscious Box, we had a yummy addition to our homemade nachos!

Green Grab Bag vs Conscious Box 2012

Green Grab Bag vs Conscious Box 2012

Let me be clear, I’m NOT saying one is better than the other.

I wanted to showcase 2 companies Green Grab Bag vs Conscious Box  side by side so you can see 2 great eco-friendly subscription services.

That being said, I took photos of my most recent shipments from GGB and CB - side by side, just so you can see both and how they stack up, and what each has to offer.

I won’t be listing individual items in this post- they will be in a separate post for each shipment received.


This is what each was shipped in

  • the GGB weighed 1lb  cost was $15 with shipping included
  • the CB was 13oz  cost was $12 + $7 shipping = $19 total

Here’s a photo of the packaging inside each box.


Here’s what I received inside each bag/box

What I will say is this: THIS MONTH

  • GGB offers more beauty, skin care and fragrance products, many are natural, organic and vegan, and is packaged ready to gift!
  • CB offers more edible treats, many that are natural, vegan and gluten free, and came with a bunch of additional coupons.

To subscribe to either- follow my links:



Want to know more about what exactly was in each box? In the next few days I’ll post what I received in a separate post.
