My Review:

Bestowed is a monthly subscription service where you can subscribe to receive a box of healthy snacks each month for only $15 per month. That is a great price that includes shipping. I was very fortunate to be able to check out their most recent November Bestowed Snacks box, my box was filled with so many unique and interesting items that I loved. I love to try new healthy snacks, as  a snack lover I try to snack as healthy as I can, and to be able to try a bunch of new to me items that is a great thing.  As soon as the Bestowed box arrived I could not wait to din into it, it was like Christmas morning I loved the idea of the surprise that the box is.. What is in this box? Hmmm? This box was stuffed and full to the brim with cool items, this is what was in my box:

Tessemae’s Red Wine Vinaigrette, this is great for salads or marinade. The vinaigrette was sour and tart very delicious. I am a huge fan of this.  A great salad topper or a dip. This was one of my favorite items in the box. The very bottle itself was cook as well, the cap was in the old style wax top very funky.

EBOOST, this was a powder to add to your water a great energy drink. This was made with natural ingredients—green tea and vitamins C, D and B.  These little packs, pack a great wake up punch before a workout or while you are traveling. These handy packets would be great for a pick me up, while on the road.

SeaSnax Sea Sprinkles, Grab & Go Pack, this was my absolute numero uno favorite item in this box. Seaweed? What? Yes, it was unique sweet and salty and it was delicious. Did I mention this was seaweed? I was being daring and I tried it, and it was oddly addicting, I asked my daughter if she wanted to try it, and strangely enough she did want to try it and she loved it too. The bog was gone before you knew it!

Hail Merry Macaroons this was a sweet treat that reminded me of my days at the Ocean City NJ boardwalk. My mother and I would walk up on the board walk and stop by one of the sweet shops for some freshly baked macaroons. These reminded me of those fresh macaroons I loved as a child.. And I love the name!

Chobani Champions, this was a coupon to buy a pack of Chobani Champions yogurt. I have seen this yogurt in my local box store for many months now and I have never tried it. I was concerned that I would not like it. I was able to try the yogurt, I tried a classic strawberry flavor and it was so creamy and so very good. Yet another unknown gem snack to me.

Pacific Organic Pumpkin Puree, pumpkin puree.. now what to do with pumpkin puree was not what I was thinking… I love to bake with pumpkin and as soon as I saw this puree my mind was rifling through my recipes in my head… I have so many great things I can do with this organic pumpkin puree. But I settled on making my famous pumpkin muffins for my daughters class, I am sure they will love them, they are divine!

Qdoba Mexican Grill, this was a card that was loaded with a meal from Qdoba. This is great for me, I am right near a Qdoba, it is a great place to eat and I am looking forward to having my free lunch. This also included some great recipes from Qdoba, they sound delicious and I will be truing them I am sure my family will love the recipes.

A great variety of items were in the box. I was amazed that this was only $15 a month, a great value. Bestowed Snack boxes offers subscriptions for 6 months ($90.00) and 1 year (165.00). If you are looking for a great gift idea for a person who loves to try new things this would be like having Christmas once a month for 6-12 months what a great gift!

I would love a subscription for the holidays, it is such a fun and different gift. This gift will be used and enjoyed and not packed away in a drawer somewhere, to never be seen again. SO if my husband is reading this hint hint, this would make a great gift for me. This would also make a great gift or anyone who loves to travel (most are great travel snacks ).

You get 5 or more healthy snacks selected each month for a pretty reasonable price. I also learned about a few snacks I'd never heard of on their favorites page, I was pleased to see that many are child friendly.
