Food is personal, food is social

Goodies Co. is here to help you discover new foods you’ll love.

If you’re anything like us, you often find yourself thinking, “I’m so tired of eating the same old thing.” But branching out can always be difficult. Why? Because trying new foods is expensive, time-consuming and risky. What if it doesn’t taste good? It’s money down the drain, not to mention a dull and very disappointing meal.

That’s no way to live.

And that’s where Goodies Co. comes in. 

For just a $7 per month subscription including taxes and shipping, the Goodies Co. box features 5-8 delicious new foods hand-picked and delivered directly to your doorstep. We always try to get you as much value as possible for your $7, and are proud to say that our box costs less than half of the sum of its parts if sold individually.

You get to receive a surprise every month, sample new foods, and expand your palate without breaking the bank.  We always try to include a wide variety of foods, from healthy, organic, artisan, and international, and definitely steer clear of being too niche (all organic, all gluten-free, etc.). We want everyone to be able to enjoy Goodies Co! And whatever you love most from a Goodies Co. box is always available for purchase in full size from our online storefront.

We also believe in rewarding our loyal customers, and offer points for reviews our customers leave about products on Goodies Co. Points can soon be redeemed for discounts on future boxes and items in the store, ensuring that Goodies Co. subscribers keep getting new products they’ll love.

Products that are considered for inclusion in a Goodies Co. Taster’s Box are always tasted by the Goodies Co. team, and tasted by volunteers from our Tasting Lab, where each potential product is graded for ultimate deliciousness.

Goodies Co. is a new experiential ecommerce site developed by @WalmartLabs in Silicon Valley.

Given Walmart’s tremendous reach in the grocery sector, we saw an opportunity to build upon the market in new ways. Goodies Co. was born out of Walmart’s firm ties to food, while also innovating and refining upon the core pillars of discovery commerce. Goodies Co. is bridge-building between physical fulfillment of a subscription box, and a rich associated experience on the Goodies Co. site and social channels. The opportunity ahead of Goodies Co. is tremendous; by reaching both those that love the emerging discovery commerce sector and subscription boxes, while also getting interesting foods to customers in new ways.

Try us out, and let Goodies Co. show you just how good life can be. Sign up with your email address now at Goodies Co, and feel free to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more delicious surprises.
