Kona Kase Box

I hadn't heard of Kona Kase until recently (thanks Jessica P).  I went to the Kona Kase website and thought this is something I'm definitely interested in. I contacted the good folks at Kona Kase and they graciously sent me a box to review. Color me excited!

Kona Kase was started because the creators Taylor & John were tired of eating the same boring energy bars. They wanted a way to for themselves and others to be able to try all the different brands out there without having to scour the earth looking for them. Voila - Kona Kase was born.

Kona Kase is priced at $15 a month with shipping included. They also offer a 3 month plan for $41 ($13.66 a month), 6 months for $77 (12.83 a month) or 12 months for $145 ($12.08 a month). The 3,6 and 12 month plans need to be paid for in full.  Each month Kona Kase will send a Kase of premium endurance products and boxes ship between the 10th and 18th of every month.

This subscription ships to the US and Canada.

The good:

Don't know what to buy: This is a great way to try protein bars, food, snacks and healthy stuff without having to go out a buy it.

Variety: They send a nice variety of products and I don't know if this is usual but it was all food and not supplements, pills or such.

The not so good:

Skip: There is no option to skip. You can cancel and restart.

Kona Kase Sampler Box. This is a sampling of products from past boxes.

Contents of the Kona Kase box with approximate retail value:

.8 oz. bag Enjoy Life Plentils in Dill & Sour Cream flavor. Value = 1.50

Barre Bar in Cinnamon Pecan. Value = $2.50

1.02 oz. 2nd Surge Ultra Energy Gel in chocolate. Value = $1.99

.88 oz. Cytomax Sports drink mix in cool citrus. Value = $0.87

(2) .5 oz Justin's Honey Peanut Butter. Value $0.56/ea.

35g Pure Matters Protein powder in Chocolate Pea. Value = $1.33

1.3 oz. Vitalyte Chia Surge in pineapple orange. Value = $1.75

1.8 oz. Pocket Fuel Almond Butter in Crunchy Banana Blueberry. Value = $2.75 - It had crunch but I don't think it was worth the calories. 

The total value of this Kona Kase is $13.81. I think this is very fair considering these are not items you can generally find at your local grocery store. I do admit though I thought "oh noooo, not the dreaded chia...." I have tried a few of these items before like the protein powder, the peanut butter, the plentils (although not this flavor) and the barre bars. Even though I've tried them before I'm cool with getting them again because I enjoyed those products. I'm most curious about the Pocket Fuel but it has a lot of calories (340 per packet). It says each packet is 2 servings but really who does that? Once it's open I'm eating the whole thing!

Verdict: I subscribed to this one.
