Good Habit Box Subscription Box Review – April 2015
Good Habit Box is healthy subscription box that includes snacks, teas, and breakfasts to help support a happy and healthy lifestyle. Subscribers choose whether to receive boxes weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. All items are gluten free (though not certified, as they may be processed in a facility that processes wheat) and vegetarian (but keep an eye out for honey). Additionally, for every box purchased, Good Habit Box donates a meal to a child in need.
There are 4 box variations available to choose from: Be Delighted (4 snacks and 2 teas), Be Balanced (2 breakfasts, 2 snacks, 2 teas, and 2 protein shakes), Be Mindful (4 breakfasts, 4 snacks, and 8 teas), and Be Fit (4 breakfasts, 4 snacks, and 4 protein shakes).
This is a review of the Be Mindful box.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

ASCEND Earl Grey Tea with Bergamot
I love earl grey tea. The blue flowers in this blend are lovely, and I was happy to see that the tea bags are high quality. My only complaint is that Good Habit Box offers four kinds of tea, and I think I would have preferred to receive two of each flavor (instead of 8 of the same flavor).
Very Forest Berry Oatmeal
Ginger Fig Oatmeal
I really liked the sound of both of these flavors! I don’t usually eat oatmeal for breakfast, but I was excited to try these. Overall, I thought they were both good, but they definitely tasted like they were healthy. I prefer my oatmeal with a little sweetness, so I mixed in a bit of honey.
Cashew Goji Berry Pepita
Cinnamon Apple Walnut
Both of these snacks are made without added salt or sugar. I liked both of them, but I think I’m more likely to regularly reach for healthy snacks if they’re sensibly seasoned. Still, I thought these were high quality snacks with a clever blend of ingredients.
Verdict: I liked Good Habit Box and enjoyed the convenience of having breakfasts and snacks at the ready. As of now, they don’t have a large variety of options available in each category (i.e. they currently offer 3 kinds of oatmeal, 8 snacks, 4 teas, and 1 shake), so I think it would be great to see their selection increase. It would also be nice to have the option to customize your subscription, or “trash” any snacks or breakfasts you’d rather not receive again. As far as value goes, it’s hard to do a specific breakdown, but I think $14.99 seems reasonable for the products I received (if maybe a bit on the pricey side). There’s certainly value in the convenience Good Habit Box provides, and I do think regularly receiving this box would help motivate me to make healthy food decisions throughout the day.
