This is a great idea that has so much potential, but they are having growing pains. I subscribed to a 6-month account (3 shipments), and got some very interesting food products that I would never have known about otherwise. I'm very interested in learning about new cuisines, and was able to do so with this subscription.
Unfortunately, the other reviewers are quite correct about the logistics. They don't pack the boxes with enough packing material, and a lot gets crushed, broken, open, etc. Bummer.
Their customer service is excellent. They sent me an entire new box when I complained, and sent a generous gift card for another issue, but I finally stopped complaining because I don't need gift cards, I need what I ordered in usable condition (not crushing and bending of products, and one of the jars was actually broken and leaking through the box). Only one box was undamaged out of the five I got.
I'd like to recommend this, and I'd like to re-subscribe, but not yet. Keeping an eye on it.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
