October Bestowed Box

Bestowed was created by nutritionist and author Heather Bauer in an effort to answer the question everyone had when it comes to health food.."which one of these is really the best?" Each month, Heather and her team of health and diet experts carefully curate 7-10 healthy snacks, beverages and lifestyle item and send them to you. Bestowed has also partnered with The Food Trust and for each box sold they supply a kid in need with a days worth of snacks. The price of this box is $20.00 a month with shipping included. They also have 3 and 6 month plans that offer a 10-15% discount.

Bestowed offered this box to me for review for the cost of shipping ($7.95).

Price: $20 a month w/no option to skip. Discounts for 3 and 6 months prepaid plans. 

This subscription is only available in the US and ships from New York. 

Bestowed is offering 10% off any subscription to my using LOVEHEALTHY. 

The good:

Variety: I liked that there was some variety to this box. It wasn't just limited to food or products, you get both!

Good size samples: The samples are full size or close to it.

Information: They include a sheet with product info and tips on usage.

The not so good:

Skip a month: I didn't see an option to skip a month.

October Bestowed Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

.5 oz. Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers. Value = $0.50

Gnu Foods Peanut Chocolate Chip FiberLove Bar. Value = $1.00

Gnu Foods Cinnamon Raisin FiberLove Bar. Value = $1.00

Hooray Puree Spinach. Value = $5.00

Little Miracles Organic White Tea & Ginseng Energy Drink. Value = $2.29 - This was very good. I would buy this again and it's conveniently sold on Amazon. 

(2) Numi Tea Indulgent Chocolate Tea. Value = $0.39/ea.

2.1 oz. Peeled Snacks Cinnamon Apple Clusters. Value = $5.49

(2) packs Glee Gum. Value = $0.23/ea. - I'm not a fan of glee gum. 

The total value of this months box is $16.52. This box has a much better value than last months box. It's still not at the $20 mark though. The apple clusters are showing up everywhere. They aren't a new product but maybe they are just trying to boost sales. I tired the FiberLove bars before and as I recall they weren't too bad. The most interesting thing in the box this month is the spinach puree. The box says you add it to recipes to get you veggies in. The off part is it doesn't say how much to add, and the color is really green, is it going to turn your food green? I went on their website and it suggested adding it to guacamole which would solve the green food issue. We don't have issues with getting our veggies in, we happen to love salads and I'm a big spinach fan but I'm still curious about this. I wonder how it tasted plain? And why is green food so scary looking?

Verdict: This box had some fun new food items to try and the value is better than last months.
