We recently partnered with Keep Your City Smiling to add Gwell bites to the New York box. In doing so, we were excited to be in the company of amazing New York brands including Joe Coffee Company, Mast Chocolate and Palermo Body. It inspired us to come up with a few fun ways to use them in our daily lives.
