Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon – March 2015 Info

Each box comes with a sheet detailing the items included and some healthy tips from Heather.

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon – March 2015 No Gii

NoGii High Protein Bar in Peanut Butter & Chocolate - Value $2.50

Tera's Energy Blend - Value $2.50

Nutiva O'Coconut Lightly Sweetened Coconut Treat - Value $1

The O'Coconut treat is the only item in this picture that is free of both gluten and dairy, so of course I ate it immediately - it's a delicious little coconut macaroon treat.

I'm sure my husband will like the NoGii bar - it gets good reviews, has 20 grams of protein, and only 10 grams of sugar (which is actually pretty low for most protein bars).

And I like that the Energy Blend is all organic - you can mix it with just water or add it to milk, a smoothie, etc.

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon – March 2015 Halo

Stash Organic Gold Cup Chai Tea - Value $4.20

Halo Seaweed Chip in Sea Salt - Value $3.69

I love Chai Tea and I really like this blend from Stash. I've tried straight-up turmeric tea, and it wasn't for me, but this is the right balance of flavors.

I've sampled these seaweed chips before and they're good - I just wish they didn't have cane syrup as an ingredient. (I'm trying to watch out for hidden sugars lately).

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon – March 2015 Hooray

Hooray Puree Spinach - Value $5

Jolly Oak Good For You Granola in S'more - Value $2

I've received Hooray Puree from Bestowed before and I think it is a great product. I'm always trying to add spinach to any meal I can, and this makes it super easy to add to sauces.

Based on the looks of this S'more granola, I thought my husband would love it - but he said it wasn't as tasty as he was expecting. I guess it is a little too "good for you."

Verdict: This box has a value of about $21. Hitting the cost of the box is actually pretty good for food subscription boxes, and especially good for Bestowed. (Usually the value is around $15). I would recommend this box if you are looking for a way to try out healthy snacks and foods, and I also would say it's best to wait until it is offered on sale or a deep discount shows up. I will post about it when that happens!

What do you think of the March Bestowed box?

Has anyone else noticed that if you peel of the new label on the spinach purée, the box is stamped “Best When Used By: 12/15/2014. A new label was made and out on top of this that states “Best if used by ‘5/21/2015.'”

I only discovered this when I went to list this product for a swap. I realized I wouldn’t be able to use it in time, so I figured I should list it. However, when I went to list the expiration date, I saw the label had small print at the bottom: “expiration date on the box was mis-stamped.”

Not wanting to list something up for swap that could possibly be expired, I decided to investigate further. Sure enough, according to the box, this spinach’s “Best By” date was three months before we even received it in our boxes.

I realize that there is a slight possibility that the boxes were actually mislabeled. However, why in the world would Bestowed include this product in their boxes?

If you have this spinach in your kitchen, I’d suggest you check the date on the actual box – the one underneath the label – and if your box is expired like mine – throw it away!

I’ll be contacting Bestowed to find out what’s going on with this product. I am so tired of boxes trying to inflate their values by included expired and/or questionable products. It totally ruins the reputation of the boxes and waste our valuable time. One of the primary reasons I subscribe to boxes like Bestowed is because I don’t have time to deal with this kind of stuff. I seriously hope I didn’t sign up for the entire year!
