September 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.

The total value of this months box is $16.51. This is one of the better boxes I've received fro Bestowed. I think the value could be a little higher but the products are good. I was excited to try the steel-cut oatmeal buy what a disappointment. Maybe it was the flavor but I didn't care for this at all and I really like steel-cut oatmeal. What I was totally surprised at was the yummy health bar. It was kind of like a peppermint patty but healthy and not in a gross way. The popcorn and seaweed were delicious, two of my favorites. 

Verdict: This box was delicious!
