FLAVR BOX,october.

so as of last month the release day is now bee set for the last day of every month.
this month we received our boxes with no info sheet and only 4 items,after a bit of social networking we were told that the info for the box would arrive by email,still not arrived.and the reason for 4 items was the expense as normally they wouldn't be able to include them in our boxes.
i do feel that we should really of been informed of these new changes before box arrival but hey ho.
