Review: healthy snack box & a giveaway


As you can see from my weekly groceries haul posts, I’ve been trying new products every week. It’s fun, it’s something that I look forward to, and it allows me to explore new food, otherwise I’d end up eating the same food over and over again. So when the people from bestowed contacted me to try out their monthly healthy snack box, I couldn’t be happier. 🙂

Bestowed is a monthly subscription that costs $19 (shipping included), you get 5+ healthy (and yummy!) products to try each month – each one hand picked by nutritionist and author Heather Bauer. They choose their brands carefully, decisions are based solely on a products’ ingredients and nutrition, and how it fits into an overall eating regimen. We also consider things like where a product is made and the packaging that it comes in.

    I tend to only buy snacks at Trader Joe’s and try new ones fairly often. They make it very easy with their “new items” aisle. One of the new items i just tried last week was the kimchi at Trader Joe’s. Decent for Tj’s!

    Lately I’ve been enjoying apples and PB for a snack. I’m always on the lookout for new products every time I go to Whole Foods. Oftentimes I look for products I see on everyone’s blogs.

    I love apples dipped in peanut butter or with slices of cheese (gouda or fontina!)

  5. Madeline

    And I tend to buy new products a lot – I’m a sucker for trying out new foods and flavors!

  6. My favorite snack right now is peanut butter, banana and rice cakes!

  7. I buy new products whenever I spot ones that interest me…which is almost every day. 😉

    I’m trying to add more snacks to my diet and this looks like a fun way to try new things! I like Luna bars and yogurt but looking for new ideas. What are your favorite snacks?

  9. Lately, my favorite snack has been carrots and hummus!

  10. I used to buy new products to try all the time. But truth be told, I’m trying to save money (so I can go on a trip to Peru!!) so I’m currently trying to cut back on unnecessary spending and usually that means snacks I probably don’t need 😦

  11. Yin

    Right now my favorite snack is mixed nuts (from CVS)!

  12. Yin

    I very rarely try new products since I’m always on a tight budget!

    My favorite snack is walnuts and freeze dried mango from Trader Joes. I often buy new products, just like you whenever I go to Whole foods or Farmers markets. I tweeted as well. Twitter https://twitter.com/auleeka
