August 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.

August Bestowed Box. 

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

1 oz. Mediterranean Snack Beanstalks. Value = $0.85

Kashi Cherry Cinnamon & Cardamom Overnight Muesli. Value = $3.99

Organic Slammers Snacks Superfood Snack. Value = $1.07

1.05 oz. Teeccino Dandelion French Roast. Value = $2.50

Teeccino Dandelion Dark Roast. Value = $0.52

Teeccino Dandelion Caramel Nut. Value = $0.52

eBoost Spruce Energizing Whole Greens. Value = $2.67

Follow Your Heart Vegenaise Coupon. Value = $9.00

.8 oz. Honey Stinger Kids' Organic Energy Chews. Value = $1.04

The total value of this months box is $13.16 or $22.16 if you include the coupon for the vegenaise. I've been wanting to try the vegenaise but it's so darn expensive! I'm happy with this box but the value is too low. Last month they included a coupon for free popsicles but I can't find the darn things anywhere which makes the coupon unusable for me. Luckily I know my store carries the vegenaise. All the other snacks I'm looking forward to trying.

Verdict: This box had some good products in it but the value could have been better.
