Bestowed is a monthly subscription box that focuses on healthy foods and snacks. The box is curated by celebrity nutritionist Heather Bauer, and she includes healthy tips with each box.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a sheet detailing the items included and some healthy tips from Heather.
Lesser Evil Buddha Bowl Himalayan Pink Popcorn – Value $1.50
BareFruit Crunchy Granny Smith Apple Chips – Value $1.50
I liked this popcorn a lot, but it took me a few bites to get used to the coconut oil taste. And I always like apple chips!
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts – Value $3
Coco Libre Protein Coconut Water – Value $3
I’ve sampled these hemp hearts many times before thanks to subscription boxes, and I love them for adding to smoothies, or blending into my morning quinoa flake oatmeal!
I was looking forward to trying this coconut water (I assumed it would be dairy free since it was coconut based), but sadly for me it has milk in it. If you tried it and recommend it – let us know!
Good Greens Bar in Wildberry – Value $1
Miracle Tree Moringa Organic Tea in Strawberry and Mint (2 tea bags) – Value $1
I thought the Good Greens Bar was pretty good, and the sugar content wasn’t too high (12 grams). I’m most excited about trying this tea. Here are the supposed benefits of the Morniga tea leaves:
- Moringa leaves contain over 90 nutrients – including 47 Antioxidants, 36 Anti-inflammatories, 25 Vitamins & Minerals, and All 8 essential Amino Acids.
- On a gram basis, Moringa leaves contain 4x the Vitamin A of Carrots, 7x the Vitamin C of Oranges, 4x the Calcium of Milk, 9x the Iron of Spinach, and 3x the Potassium of Bananas.
And the tea is caffeine free.
This box also came with coupons for a one-month subscription to Prep Dish and a discount “gift card” to Urban Remedy for $15 off purchases of $50 or more (aka a coupon code). I’ll probably end up using the Urban Remedy discount since I love the brownie they sent out in a past POPSUGAR box!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $11 (not counting the Prep Dish or Urban Remedy coupons). I really like the food selected for the box this month, but value wise can’t recommend this box at the regular price. I recommend waiting for a Bestowed deal to pop up on Gilt City, Groupon, etc. or to buy a subscription next time they offer a significant discount.
