Bestowed ships in a pretty orange box. This box got a bit wet from a storm, but the contents were safe.
Zevia Giner Ale: This is a blend of real giner and citrus oils. This has zero calories and no sugar. I really only drink giner ale when I am sick, so I am going to save this for one of my family members (or I) have a upset tummy.
Update: My husband tried this one night. He had an upset stomach, but wasn't a fan. He said it had a diet flavor.
Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil: If you read my blog, you know my strong dislike for coconut. This is coconut oil and is used for cooking. This is 100% organic, trans fat free coconut oil. This is an all-natural , flavorful, energy packed alternative. This is rich in vitamins, minerals and has a long list of impressive health benefits.
Saffron Road Crunchy Chickpeas: I love salty snacks, but they are not very good for you. These are non-gmo, gluten free and are a natural snack. There is fiber and protein as well. I was really prepared to love these, but they are much to spicy for my tastes.
Zing Bar: This is wheat free, vegan, soy free and non gmo. It has 10 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. I was really excited to try this, but I hated it. I actually didn't swallow. It honestly tasted like dirt.
Energy Fruits: This is filled with selected fruits to pack some great healthy eating. All the fruit is crushed and blended together and they even add some vitamins. I am interested in trying this, although I know my 2 year old would love this. He is a huge fruit eater and loves pouches.
Aquatowel is an individually wrapped wet towel made of 97.4% water. It is used for the face, hands, and body but could also double as a cleaning wipe for a variety of surfaces. It is free of perfumes, oils and harsh chemicals that can cause allergies or other adverse reactions. This will be put with my travel items.
Runa: This is two packets of cinnamon-lemongrass guayusa tea. Guayusa is native Amazonian tree leaf that indigenous people int he Ecuandorian Amazon have brewed like tea for thousands of years. Drinking guayusa is essnetial to what makes them “runa”- fully alive. C is the resident tea drinker
There are a couple coupons. First there was a 1.00 the Zevia, and there was another card with a 1 month free membership to Yogadownload.com
Final Thought: I was really disappointed in this month's box. The Zing bar and the chickpeas were not good at all. I wish there were more items in this month's box. This box seem much smaller than previous boxes. I hope next month's box is better, because this didn't meet expectations.
