What can I say, I am a complete sucker for monthly subscription boxes! I’ve tried out Bulu Box, Conscious Box, and Birchbox to name a few. Sometimes I love the contents of the box, other times not so much. I think I spent a solid month around the holidays researching subscription boxes to give as gifts. One box I didn’t stumble upon then, but recently heard about through the Sweatpink ambassadors is Kona Kase. It is a monthly subscription box for $15 each month that is filled with healthy snacks and supplements. Here’s what I got in my box:
Enjoy Life Seed & Fruit Mix – It was a mix of dried pineapple, dried cranberries, dried apricots, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. I really thought I would like this, but it was just too sweet! I won’t be purchasing this.
Turkey Perky Jerky – Turkey jerky flavored with guarana for energy. I’m on the fence about this because it tasted good, however I think the guarana may have given me a headache.
Body Glove Surge Energy Gel – I recieved a double espresso flavored gel, and since I’m not a coffee person I gave this sample away to a coffeeholic. They said that is was “okay tasting.”
Health Warrior Chia Bar in Acai Berry – This was a 100 calorie bar that tasted really good, but was pretty darn small. It really was jam-packed with chia seeds though, so I would consider keeping a few of these around for a small snack.
PROBAR Bolt in Orange – organic energy chews. I haven’t had a chance to try these just yet, but I love the idea of all the ingredients being organic and gluten-free.
Garukabar – Snack bar made with only 8 ingredients, including raw Vermont honey and 1% of all profits goes towards gorilla conservation. This was by far my favorite product in the box, it tasted AMAZING and the packaging was 100% recyclable.
Barbara Llewellyn Granola – All the ingredients sound great (pecans, white sesame seeds, sliced almonds, etc.) so I think I’ll put this in my morning oats, but I am having a really tough time finding any further info about it online.
Caveman Cookies – Cookies made only with honey, nuts, and fruit. The taste was pretty good, I could definitely taste the honey. I liked that they were individually wrapped and a little chewy.
Overall, the box was definitely filled with nicely sized samples, but I wasn’t a huge fan of all the products in there. It does seem to be worth the price, but I just don’t think I would actually purchase this box myself. It’s always fun to try, though 🙂
FTC: I recieved this box through Fit Approach to sample and review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Have you ever tried Kona Kase?
If you could, what kind of sample box would you create? I’m thinking a sushi sample box. Can you tell I’m still craving sushi??
