March Kona Kase

Contents of the Kona Kase box with approximate retail value:

Nuun Energy vitamin in cherry limeade. Value = $2.40

Picky Bars Smooth Caffeinator. Value = $2.30

Honey Stinger Chocolate Waffle. Value = $1.39

GU Energy Gel in Mandarin Orange. Value = $1.45

Kind Bar in Dark Chocolate Chili Almond. Value = $1.39

1 oz. Jelly Belly Sport Beans Quick Energy. Value = $1.25

The total value of this months Kona Kase is $10.18. This is actually a pretty good box of goodies for me. I really enjoy the kind bars although I'm hoping it's not spicy. I'm always looking to try new protein bars and the quest bar looks pretty good. I'm a huge fan of the honey stinger waffles. The nuun energy is a tablet that gets mixed with water. Kind of like an alka seltzer for energy. The picky bar is new to me and I like the idea of it but it has lots of carbs (28g). Maybe I'll split it up over 2 days. I'm trying to cut back on carbs and I would rather get them from fruits and legumes than an energy bar. Ditto for the GU energy gel. I've had these before and they do work but it has 22g of carbs.

Verdict: Overall this was a pretty good box of items although the value didn't meet the price paid.
