You have probably heard of several projects from @WalmartLabs, such as Polaris, a Walmart.com search engine; Shopycat, a social gift finder; Classrooms, a program to simplify back-to-school shopping.

Goodies Co has today November 26 introduced Free Shipping to help shoppers enjoy goodies from Cyber Monday till Friday, November 30 as Christmas fast approaches. The firm ship goodies for free plus every full order clients will make this whole week.

Goodies Co says it wants everyone to enjoy free shipping on all their full sized orders or on anything they love this festive season!

Here is a little history.

On November 14 WalmartLabs launched to the public, Goodies Co to help users discover new foods they’ll love. The $7 a month food subscription service for consumers to sample out new delicacies handpicked by the Goodies co team includes treats like wine biscuits, pumpkin souffle mix, dark chocolate infused Quinoa bars, and white cheddar popcorn all wrapped with a brief description just in case you might want to order for the same after tasting.

The Need

Goodies Co. was not just launched to make money.

Walmart says many fear trying out new foods because they think branching out is expensive, risky and time-consuming and might be disappointing if it doesn’t work.

It’s a solution.

According to Ravi Raj, vice president of products @WalmartLabs wants to end that fear of launching out.

Raj says, “We continue to experiment with new offerings to delight our customers and leave them with a smile. With Goodies Co., subscribers have the pleasure of opening a box filled with delicious treats every month that they like or may never have tried before.  Great value combined with a community of food lovers and the sheer surprise of what a box might hold makes Goodies Co. a compelling offering.”

$7 a Month, Different Themes & Tastes

Send every month, under different themes, the gift box is becoming a phenomenon with many particularly due to its simplicity.

After you subscribe to Goodies Co for just $7 a month with no extra taxes or shipping charges, they get the Goodies Co. Taster’s box, taste what’s in it, review and buy the treats they love. The buyers earn points on that for further use on their next purchase.

User ‘Tastymony’

According to  Jason Coleman of Gadsden, Alabama, a Goodies Co. beta tester  and food video podcast host at BevNerd.com,

“The Goodies Co. box is packed with high-quality foods that I would not have found elsewhere at a price that is unmatched. The themes make me look forward to opening my Goodies box to discover what is inside every month.  It’s a great way to taste and experience new foods in a fun and healthy way.”
