PrettyFit BCAA Burn (30 servings) – Value $39.99
This is new since the last time I reviewed a PrettyFit box, but you can now buy at least some of the PrettyFit branded items on their website, including this BCAA supplement. What I like about this is that it doesn’t have any stimulants so it won’t keep me up at night, plus I feel like BCAA supplements help me retain muscle while losing fat. I used this at half strength, which is what I do with all products of this type, and I thought it tasted all right and dissolved better than my usual BCAA powder.
Bite Fuel Power Bites Protein Cookies in Chocolate Chip (3 oz) – Value $3.49
I liked these. They were quite soft but they had a little bit of a grainy texture (I mean that in a good way, like you get with snickerdoodles). They were high in sugar, though, and there weren’t many chocolate chips. But I actually loved the texture and would eat them again just for that.
Bite Fuel Protein Granola Trail Mix in Blue Mango (1.5 oz) – Value $1.99
Bite Fuel Protein Granola Trail Mix in Banana Apple (1.5 oz) – Value $1.99
I used both of these in a muffin recipe (what I do with most of my granola samples these days). I like that there were a couple of flavors (and a couple of products from the same brand, for that matter).
Hydracup – Value $11.99
This is a fancy shaker cup that helps break up clumps (among other features). Definitely a useful thing to have if you consume protein shakes or preworkout supplements.
Nogii Protein Powder in Vanilla Bean (0.74 oz) – Value $1.65
Nogii Protein Powder in Cocoa Chocolate (0.78 oz) – Value $1.62
These are gluten-free protein powders that include whey and quinoa as protein sources. I’ve had them before and I’m a fan of both. I kind of like getting samples of such things because I only use maybe a tablespoon a day, and the samples last me plenty long.
Sportea (1 bag) – Value $0.50
This tea has been around for a couple of decades but it’s new to me. It has a lot of vitamin C added and is a blend of green and black teas with ginger, eleuthero root (aka Siberian ginseng), and yerba mate. It tastes vaguely familiar to me but I think this is a popular ingredient blend.
Amrita Mango Coconut Energy Bar (1.8 oz) – Value $2.25
This is free of pretty much every major allergen. However, to me it just tastes like a date bar and it is kind of high in sugar. Don’t get me wrong, I like it, but there isn’t much making it stand out from other date bars I’ve had lately.
Amrita Chocolate Maca Protein Bar (2.12 oz) – Value $2.25
On the other hand, I enjoyed this a lot. I could definitely taste the maca but this had a soft (but not crumbly) texture and the chocolate was excellent.
There was also some product literature in the box.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $67.72 for this PrettyFit box. PrettyFit advertises it as being over $80 in value and it would be if you used MSRP for the products – I opted to use the actual price a customer would pay (rather than MSRP), which results in a bit lower value. However, for a box consisting entirely of food, it’s an excellent value for the cost. And it is above the price of the box by a fair amount. I was happy with the assortment of products (everything will get used up!) and am wishing I still had some of those cookies…
This subscription seems to alternate between supplement-heavy months and protein bar/powder/etc. heavy months. What I like is that you can customize it – if a certain month is not for you, you can skip or request an alternate pack. This makes it a great subscription for vegetarians, because you can take the protein boxes and skip any gelatin-containing supplements. Many of the items are also gluten free. This subscription is probably not a good choice for vegans, however, because I see a lot of honey, dairy, and sometimes egg.
