April Kona Kase Box

Kona Kase is a monthly box designed to fuel your active lifestyle by sending nutritional products, inspirational quotes and training tips. The box 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.  Kona Kase ships between the 10th and 18th of every month.

This subscription ships to the US and Canada (additional $8 shipping). Ships from Oakland, Ca. 

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.

Value: The value varies but is usually never above the $15 price.

April Kona Kase Box

Contents of the Kona Kase box with approximate retail value:

Amrita Plant Based Nutrition Bar in Apricot Strawberry. Value = $2.50

Nutryvitta Banana Bar. Value = $1.80 - This is interesting. It's brown and soft and tastes like compact concentrated banana. 

Newman's Own Dark Chocolate Cups with Raspberry Centers. Value = $2.89 - yummy!

Pocket Fuel Pineapple Coconut Almond Butter Blend. Value = $1.49

Clif Kidz Bar in Honey Graham. Value = $0.94

Dr. Will Bar. Value = $2.00

The total value of this months Kona Kase is $11.62. While this is a pretty good box of nutritional products I'm disappointed at the value. I wish they would get closer to the $15 subscription price. A couple of these things I've tried before and a couple are new to me. I really like the raspberry cups but  how can you go wrong with dark chocolate and raspberry centers. The pocket fuel looks good although I wish it had more than 5g of protein. I hope the honey graham bar has a graham cracker crust. I always forget how much I love graham crackers.

Verdict: Overall this was a pretty good box of items although the value didn't meet the price paid. I canceled this box and I believe this was the last one in my subscription.
