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.  Kona Kase ships between the 10th and 18th of every month.

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.

The not so good:

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

February Kona Kase

Contents of the Kona Kase box with approximate retail value:

The Cookie Department Snap Back Ginger Detox Cookie. Value = $2.50

Omnibar Cranberry Rosemary Bar. Value = $3.00

Nature's Bakery Strawberry Fig Bar. Value = $1.25

Mazama Bar in Chocolate Banana. Value = $3.50

22 Days Nutrition Daily Mocha Mantra. Value = $2.69 - very strong coffee flavor with a chocolate coating. The bar itself is thick and slightly chewy. 

Honey Stinger lemon waffle. Value = $1.39

The total value of this months Kona Kase is $14.33. Let's talk about this Omnibar for a minute. The description says beef, almond butter, sweet potatoes, oats + flax seed bar. Beef? Well that can't be right. First ingredient? Ground beef. This weirds me out a little bit. I mean I eat beef jerky but that's dehydrated and this is mixed with other stuff. I'm not sure about this but I will definitely try it and I'm going to make the boyfriend try it also. I'm not a fan of the Mazama bars either. Mostly because that one bar has over 400 calories and 50g of carbs, this would be fantastic if I was some sort of athlete but sadly I am not. I know I like the fig bars and the lemon waffles. Surprisingly the 22 days bar wasn't too bad. I ate half of it before going to the gym and the other half when I was done.

Verdict: This box was ok, not a super value but I got to try a few new things.
