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:

eboost acai pomegranate energy + vitamin powder. Value = $1.40

(2) Lavle Belgian Dark Chocolate. Value = $0.78/ea.

Morinaga Mori-Nu Organic Tofu. Value = $1.58

Shine Organics pouch in calm. Value = $2.06

1 oz. Somersaults Dutch Cocoa Sunflower Seed Bites. Value = $0.82

1 oz. Tera'swhey Organic Whey Protein Powder in Bourbon Vanilla. Value = $2.59

Yogi Ginger Tea bag. Value = $0.31

Yogi Detox Tea bag. Value = $0.31

PrepDish coupon for $10 off a one month subscription. Value = $0 - This requires an out of pocket expense of $4.00

The total value of this months box is $11.19. These boxes seem to always have a low value. It's ok for me because I'm able to purchase them at a discount but if I were paying the full price of $20 I would be upset. I am looking forward to trying a few of the items in this box. I was thinking the other day that I hadn't made anything with tofu in awhile, then this tofu arrived in my mail. This brand is new to me so that will be fun to try. The dark chocolate bars were delicious AND I saw that they have 8g of fiber in each piece. Healthy and delicious! I have a protein drink that I'm really partial to but if I remember correctly I did like the Tera'swhey powder mix. 

Verdict: This box had just terrible value but some interesting new products to try.
