I love getting a box of goodies in the mail.

Especially when that box contains goodies hand-picked by a celebrity nutritionist. Ohhh, don’t I feel special, haha!

There are a lot of boxes-‘o-fun out there that people can receive every month. My Twitter feed is filled with friends chatting away about theirs…But so far, none had piqued my interested enough. None until I was offered the opportunity to review a Bestowed box.

Okay, so what is this one? Why did I agree to give this one a go? Well, it’s a box of 5+ nutritional and lifestyle products all hand-selected by nutritionist and author Heather Bauer sent directly to you. All trusted and researched brands you can feel good about snacking on and using. I took a look at the list of brands they select from each month and I felt myself nodding along…yup, I like that one, yup, that one’s awesome, yup, ooohh I hope that one comes in my box! Once I did that and I felt like the goodies would receive my stamp of approval for myself, I was on board to review. Annnnnnd host a giveaway. Y’all love giveaways. 😀

The bright orange box came last week–the day before I went on my road trip for my destination half marathon. Woo hoo! Perfect timing for me take along with me as I traveled.

Upon opening the box, you’ll see a list of what’s inside. The note goes into great detail about each product. It lists the name of the item, why Bestowed loves it and why it received their approval and two tips about how or when to use it.

My box contained:

–Happy Family ~ Happy Squeeze Smoothies
–Simply Snackin Jerky
–Kind Healthy Grains Oats & Honey Clusters
–Green and Black’s Dark Chocolate (70%)
–Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars
–EBOOST
–Arrowhead Mills Oatmeal
–iTrain $25 Gift Card
–Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Hemp Seeds

Each box will come with at least 5 goodies to try…mine had 9! Actually 10, because there were 2 EBOOSTs.  😀 My sister did snag the other, so it went back down to 9. Haa.

I tried to take pics as I went along snacking my way through the box, but that wasn’t necessarily safe as I ate some of the contents while driving. I will say that my Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar was the first thing I ate and it was delightful, and the Simply Snackin’ Jerky was tasty, too. I already knew I would love the Kind Oats thanks to my last giveaway and I had had the Green and Black’s Dark Chocolate before–it was delish and made for a great coating on the chocolate covered strawberries I made!

The Arrowhead Mills Oatmeal came in super handy for breakfast on the road trip. This wasn’t like regular prepackaged oatmeals that are full of unhealthy crap and flavorings. Just simple, sodium free, organic oats. I whipped it up in the microwave with water and added in some of my own protein powder and topped it with a berry. Yum and convenient.

I still have to go through a few remaining items, but it was time to write this review and I’m a slow snacker! But what I tried was all fabulous and I now found some new brands that I love!
