The big box

When I got back from my adventures yesterday I noticed roomie had brought it a big box that had my name on it. I was a bit perplexed as the only thing I was really expecting was the peppermint oil which I knew would not be sent in that big of a container. Anyway, I opened it, it was something I had been sent from a survey site that needs to be evaluated. It was a food product packed in dry ice..which is always entertaining. We used to love to play with it, when we were kids,,although cautiously, as it can be dangerous. Have you ever gotten a big box and wondered what was inside?

Snow here is very hit or miss..some years there is virtually none, and other years we end up with 2 feet that all falls at once in February. Feb. seems to be the big month for snow here..if we get it, alot of it tends to fall then for some reason.

I've signed up many times to test and evaluate products, but have never been sent anything.

It's great when you buy something, forget you ever ordered it then have it turn up on your doorstep.

Yes, I didn't order this, but they always ask if you are willing to try a product, and sometimes send them..Sadly, I never got the Japanese whiskey I took a survey on once..lol. Now that would have been quite appreciated. It is usually something less thrilling.

No, but I have bought it in the store before so I am familiar with it. Maybe this weekend I will use it.

I get surprised by things like that on occasion. Our shipments that are like that are also inside a styrofoam cooler.

Yes, it really was..of course with the site..there is always a possibility you will be sent something..but it usually only happens a few times a year.

My mother-in-law would always send Christmas gifts in big boxes. I would peel back the wrapping from each gift, just to take a look at what it would be and then tape the paper back in place. I do not wait well for surprises.

dry ice reminds me of ice cream cakes. how do they receive your evaluation - online? are these for upcoming or existing products?
