Natural Calm Drink Mixes (5) – value $4
Supereats Kale + Chia Chips in Chili Lime – Value $1.50
These kale chips were pretty good! And I was surprised to see the first ingredient is actually kale!
Balance Bare Energy Bar in Sea Salt Caramel Nut – Value $1.50
Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter – Value $1
I love Justin’s products (their dark chocolate peanut butter cups are the only way I can get my dairy-free Reese’s peanut butter cup fix every once in a while). This chocolate almond butter is delicious too – it’s not overly sweet, and a great way to take care of a chocolate craving without feeling like I’m being very unhealthy.
Qure Water – Value $2
Bitsy’s Brainfood Smart Cookies in Orange Chocolate Beet – Value $1.50
I’m not sure about the pH+ level benefits of this water, but it is just a quality tasting water, so that works too! I couldn’t try these cookies since they are made with wheat, but I like that they add in lots of healthy ingredients to the mix.
This box also came with a Hello Fresh coupon code.
Verdict: Based on my estimates, this box has a value of $11.50. Considering the monthly cost is $20 a box, I’m very disappointed in the value. (Normally Bestowed boxes aren’t this low in value though, so I’m hoping September is just an abnormality). In general I appreciate the curation of this box and I’ve discovered quite a few new healthy brands thanks to Bestowed, so I’m hoping October is a better month.
