June BroBox

The newest offering in the subscription box game is BroBox. BroBox is a monthly box. They say they cater to the bro demographic sending the coolest products from awesome brands & expert craftsmen. The price of the box is $14.95 with shipping included. I found a deal on this and I think I paid around $7 as an introductory price. 

The good:

Not recurring: I see this as good and bad. Good because you don't have to worry about canceling and bad because if you want it monthly you have to remember to order it each month

Need a gift: You can send a BroBox to the bro is your life. 

Not just for bros: I noticed the items didn't have to be for men. Woman could use them just as easily

The not so good: 

Price: The price is OK. I think I would like it more at $10 or $12.

Shipping: They ship after the month is over. For instance this box is June but it didn't ship until July 5th. I like to received my boxes in the month they are for. 

This is the box the bro stuff comes in. 

All the bro stuff

The funny card included with the Dude wipes.

Contents of box with approximate retail price: 

Multipurpose pocket survival tool. Value = $5.00??

Lenny & Larry's Muscle Brownie in Peanut Butter. Value = $2.50 - This is delicious! I always expect these thing to be dry and blah but not this one! I only ate a quarter of it because that's all the boyfriend left me - guess he liked it also.

Aeroshot in green apple. Value = $2.99

Aeroshot in raspberry. Value = $2.99

(3) Dude Wipes. Value = $0.30/ea.

(4) Turbo Truffles. Value = $3.95 - these are pretty good.  Tasted like chocolate and has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of premium coffee. I'm not sure it worked though because I had that and a skinny mocha and felt exhausted all day. 

(2) Bold for Men Dry Shave Gel. Value = $0.68/ea.

The total value of this BroBox is $19.69 give or take a buck or two for the survival tool. It's heavy and has a can opener, knife edge, screwdriver, ruler, can opener, wrench, saw blade and direction ancillary indication. I asked the boyfriend is this was useful and he said "not really" but what does he know. Ha ha. I think I will put it in my glove box cause you never know when you may need to measure and cut something. The boyfriend uses an electric razor to shave so so I'll be giving the dry shave packets away.  I think the dude wipes are hilarious and even though I'm not a dude I'm going to use these after working out. 

Verdict: Interesting box. The first thing the boyfriend asked is if there was jerky in the box. Sadly no but there's always next month.
