Miraculous™: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir Review

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 



Marinette and Adrien, two seemingly normal kids  live what appears to be an ordinary teen life in Paris with daily encounters that create amusing circumstances in school,  with friends, family, and even with strangers. But when the evil Hawk Moth threatens their beloved city of Paris, they transform into the superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir using super powers gained with the help of their magical friends. Hawk Moth is using his evil energy to transform normal people into super villains, so our two heroes need to use all their skills to defeat him.

Becoming Ladybug is a complicated process. First, Marinette needs a "Kwami," which is a tiny magical assistant (called Tikki). She also needs a "Miraculous," which is a magical accessory (her special pair of earrings). Tikki uses the Miraculous to transform Marinette, but her Ladybug super powers only work for a limited time!

It is a good thing that she gets a little help from her superhero partner, Cat Noir even though she insists she doesn't need him. If only she knew Cat Noir's true identity – her school crush, Adrien! It will take a lot – friendship, teamwork and skill – to outwit Hawk Moth. Will Ladybug and Cat Noir be able to balance their double lives and keep Paris safe? Will they ever find out each other's true identity? Until then – there is a whole city of baddies to defeat… SPOTS ON, CLAWS OUT!

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.

Your 1st box includes their welcome box, which includes either 1 full-sized hot sauce or 3 full-sized hot sauces, depending on what you selected, plus a mini tasting notebook. Your 2nd box and on includes 1 or 3 full-sized hot sauces. 


Here is what was in April's box:

Char Man Verde hot sauce  



Hoardables Cruel & Unusual Punishment

Both my husband and I love hot sauces so this is a subscription box we are both enjoying very much.  This is my third box from them and I am absolutely loving it. I love you get to try different hot sauces that I would never have even tried or even hot sauces I have actually never heard of. 

Do I think it is worth it?Yes, I do especially  if you love trying new hot sauces that you would not have heard of or could not find in stores here, I think it is worth it.
