Bestowed Box - June 2013 Review (Giveaway & Coupon Code!)

***Again, I know it's July, but I have quite a few boxes from June left that I'm going to sprinkle in because I'm behind on my boxes!! I will always post in the title of the post which month it is from! Thanks!***

Bestowed box is a subscription box for all you health food nuts out there! A nutritionist by the name of Heather Bauer helps to chose items for this curated health food box every month. There is a letter included in each box that describes each item and why Heather chose it for the box.

I was very excited when Bestowed offered to send me a box to review - I'm always looking for new ways to eat healthier! Especially for snacks. I never met a cookie I didn't like, and I'm beginning to think that it shows!

Bestowed box is $19/month (including shipping), and it contains 5-8 items each month (sometimes it also includes non-food items, such as the antibacterial wipes in this month's box).

COUPON CODE: Use the code 5OFFBESTOWED01 to get $5 off your first month (or your first yearly subscription) of Bestowed!

Without further ado....Bestowed box for June!

So - here is the list of the items that were in June's box!

Herban Essentials Towelette Sampler Pack (6 wipes) - Value $6

I like the idea of a portable (and antibacterial) towelette that is all natural. I will pack these in the "just in case" area of my purse!

ZICO Coconut Water (14 fl oz) - Value $2.50

I tried this...and I'm not a huge fan. I'm sure it is an acquired taste, but I just can't see myself drinking coconut water by itself to quench my thirst! It might be good in a smoothie or a little tropical shake though. 

gimMe All Natural Roasted Seaweed Snacks in Cheddar Cheese (0.70 oz) - Value $2

My husband LOVES seaweed snacks, and he thought these were just awesome. I tried them too, but seaweed in general (at least for me) has an unpleasant aftertaste that I'm not fond of, so I let him have most of the bag! I think I would have liked it better on a salad (as the letter in the box suggests) rather than plain. 

Bakery on Main True Bar in Coconut Cashew - Value $2

This was easily my favorite item - it was SO GOOD!! I wanted another one immediately, and I've been thinking about it since I ate it. Who knew that cashew and coconut would be a good flavor combo!!

ROOTS by Deeply Rooted Superfood Powder Mix in Blueberry (2) - Value $4

I haven't tried this one yet, but I am interested to see ROOTS' spin on the health food shake. They claim that it was made by a guy who was tired of drinking yucky-tasting supplement blends, and so I think it will be better than I'm anticipating!

Artisana Raw Superfood Acai Berry Nut Butter (0.5 oz) - Value $1.50

I also have yet to try this one, but it is the perfect size for a single serving. I will have this on wheat toast one morning when I actually have time to sit down to breakfast!

Coupon for a free Dr. Praeger's Sensible Foods item - Value up to $4

They do sell Dr. Praeger's items at Whole Foods, so if you have one near you (I, unfortunately, no longer do!), let me know if you would like this and I'll send it to you! I cannot use it, but it adds a nice value to the box, and their items are all natural, which is great!


I am very impressed with my first Bestowed box! I loved the coconut cashew bar, and the herbal wipes will certainly go to good use. The box was a great value, and it was all items that are good for me!

What did you think of the June box? Is there anything in it you would like to try for yourself?
