The whole concept of KarePax is perfect for me and my husband, and it's really a niche that hasn't been tapped yet. Each month, they send a combination of two or three independent comic books with a unique mix of snacks, including 11-13 full size snacks and a handful of penny candy. The snacks combine regional, international, and retro snack items. They're also really happy to work with customers, so if comics aren't your thing and you want even more food, or if you want something sort of geeky and comics-related but don't want to read new comics, they'll be flexible (but seriously, there are so few comic book stores left and the indie comics market needs us, guys).

|I bet these are good. I wish they were nut, gluten, fat, AND gelatin free. :(|
On the other hand, we could eat all the hazelnut-related items, and I love hazelnut! I also loved that the items came from all over, including Taiwan, Indonesia, and Austria. The Dutch Wafer Rolls are pretty simple, but they're hazelnut and chocolate, so that's a good thing. My husband hasn't tried the hot chili pepper and lime tortilla chips yet, but he's excited to try them.
Finally, customer service is pretty important to me. Although some people think that a smaller company can manage customers better than a large company, I'm not sure it's not really the same - less people to manage, but also more to manage as a whole (for a small company) versus a large customer base but a dedicated customer support team (big company). KarePax is not only responsive, they also reply quickly, are truly interested in feedback, and really do want to make your box the best for you personally (they even ask if you have children or if the subscriber is a child in order to ensure your comics are appropriate for anyone under 14 if so). For me, what I love about subscription boxes is that I am shopping through actual people, and usually getting products I wouldn't get on Amazon or at the store nearby. If I wanted customer service that was automated and impersonal, Amazon is more affordable. I'm paying for that extra connection and customization, and the quality of service I have seen with KarePax was really one of the major deciding factors in signing up.
