January 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 a discounted price of $10.00

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 using code 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.

January Bestowed Box. 

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

.53 oz. Bare Snacks Crunchy Apple Chips. Value = $1.39

Coco Libre Protein Drink. Value = $1.99

Good Greens Bar in Wildberry. Value = $0.99

.88 oz. Lesser Evil Buddha Bowl Himalayan Pink Popcorn. Value = $0.62

2 oz. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts. Value = $2.99

(2) Miracle Tree Mooring Organic Tea. Value = $0.32/ea.

PrepDish One-month subscription. Value = $14.00

Urban Remedy Gift Card $15.00. Value = $0.00 - Requires a minimum $50 purchase. 

The total value of this months box is $22.62 or $8.62 not counting the PrepDish subscriptionI didn't think this box of goodies was too great. The PrepDish is for new customers only so some people may not be able to use it. I was looking forward to trying the popcorn but the boyfriend got to it before me. The one item I'm not a fan of is the hemp hearts. I just don't like the flavor. I'm also a little leery of the protein drink because it has coconut water in it. I do not like plain coconut water at all so I'm hoping the chocolate will take care of that. I have a free month of PrepDish I received in another box that I haven't used yet. I intended to use it but the service they offer is pretty much what I do at home anyway. 

Verdict: I didn't feel this box was worth the $10 I paid let alone the regular $20 price.
