January Blissmo Box

The Blissmo box is a monthly subscription service geared toward organic & eco friendly products that are described as safer and better for you.  Each month they offer different boxes to choose from which vary based on themes or seasons. They offer various pricing for monthly 6 months subscriptions.  The base price is always $19.95 but for monthly subscriptions add $4.95 shipping ($24.90 a month) and for 6 months subscriptions the price is $19.95 with free shipping. You have to pay in full and the total would be $119.70.  The company advertises that you will receive between $19-$40 worth of items in each box.

Each month they send you an email with a choice of 2-3 boxes to pick from. My suggestion is to pick early because a couple of times they have ran out of the box I want. This month they had 2 choices but I went with the New Year's yummies box. 

This subscription is available in the US only.

The good:

Like trying new things but not sure what to try? This is a good way to start trying new products without being overwhelmed or spending a bunch of money. 

Variety: They offer a selection of 2-3 different themed boxes. 

Pricing: It's not too bad for what you get. Most of the boxes are over the paid price and offer some really cool stuff. 

Information: They include a card with information about the company and their products.  Also on the card they list the value of each item received, I really appreciate this. 

Skip a month? Yes, now you can skip a month and you won't be charged. 

The not so good: 

Limited number of boxes: Sometimes they sell out 

Blissmo New Year's Yummies Box

Contents of box with retail price listed:

Ola Granola. Value = $1.15

Nude Food Bar. Value = $2.65

Cacao 7 chocolate pods (3) 75% cacao. Value = $4.00 - I love dark chocolate and this did not disappoint. There were 3 pods in the bag and it was very dark. 

My Super Snacks Blueberry Banana Acai Bites. Value = $2.99

Perfect Fuel Chocolates. Value = $2.38

Go Picnic Ginger Zip Fruit & Nut Mix. Value = $1.00

Caveman Cookies in original flavor. Value = $0.78 - every time I eat one of theses I like it more and more. 

Orgain Vanilla Shake. Value = $3.69

Lucy's Chocolate Chip Cookies. Value = $1.59

The total value of my box is $20.23. I was excited to see a high protein drink but it has 32 grams of carbs. That's a little much for me. I've been doing really good on low carb down 10lbs!  I figure the teenager will eat the granola, she loves the stuff! I'm not a huge fan of ginger candy but I'll give it a try anyway. The nude food bar looks promising but we will see, sometimes those all natural bars are blah. I saw the boyfriend ate some of the blueberry bites but he didn't finish the bag. I'll have to remember to ask him how it was.

Verdict: Blissmo box has a wide variety to choose from and if you don't see something you like just skip.
