The Box

Bestowed is a monthly subscription box that sends healthy and delicious food, snacks, and treats, all hand-picked by celebrity nutritionist Heather Bauer. This was my first month trying out a Bestowed box, and I was oh so eager to see which delicious treats would be in my box this month!

theme

This was my very first box so I’m not sure if they normally do a theme or not, but I don’t think this month’s July box was themed. At first I thought the title could have been “Hello Yum”, but then I figured that maybe all the cards say things like that. haha.

the goods

1 • Health Warrior Chia Bar – Açai Berry 
$23.50/ 15 pack
I haven’t tried this yet because I figured it would be a good snack for work, but it looks absolutely delicious! I’m excited to try the yummy flavor and I love that it’s only 100 calories and full of fiber and protein. Check out the bar here.

2 • 34 Degrees Crisps – Natural 
$18.46/ 6 pack – 4.5 oz boxes
I have gotten these before in a subscription box and think I may have received a better flavor back then because these “Natural” flavored ones don’t really have any flavor at all. I tried just dipping them in my whipped cream cheese along side some pretzels, but it still wasn’t even too great. Not the best crackers/chips in the world, but you can eat 18 of them for just 100 calories so it would be a pretty good snack. Check them out here.

3 • Hooray Puree Butternut Squash Puree 
$4.00, 2 packets in each box
This product was certainly very new to me and quite surprising. Even after reading through the back of it and seeing all the dishes you can add it too, I guess I’m still not sure what the point of it is or really what the benefits are of using it. They advertise it as “veggies made easy”. I’m very intrigued to try this one out. Check out their website here.

4 • Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Chips – Sweet Potato 
$3.89
These chips were preeeetty delicious. I always love a cool new crunchy snack, so naturally I was excited to try this. It was perfect packed in my lunch! Check out the chips here.

5 • Emmy’s Organics Vanilla Coconut Macaroons 
$2.95
Eh. These were way, way too coconutty for me. The texture looked so soft and delectable and just moist and amazing… unfortunately, I just really didn’t like the flavor. I’m sure coconut lovers will appreciate this cookie! Check out the macaroons here.

6 & 7 • 1 year subscription to Organic Gardening & Barre3 Online 15-Day Pass 
I wasn’t really too excited about either of these things because they are not anything I would personally use. If anyone else would want them, they’re all yours!

winnersHonestly…. the only thing that I really liked were the Food Should Taste Good chips…..Oh and their excellent info guide about the products inside, I always appreciate a nice box guide and they did a great job with this!

losersHmmmm well, honestly for me, pretty much the whole box…. I might try out one more month to see how the next one goes…

This wasn’t my favorite box, but only because I just so happen to not eat most of the things in this box normally. I might try it for one more month and see if August works out a little better for me.

all love & smiles,
