The box was heavy and I couldn’t wait to dig in and see what came in my box!  All of the products that KlutchClub sends you are supposed to be full-size or multi-use.

Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips Salt and Pepper

Value: $1.00

I’ve loved all of these different bean chips that I’ve received in my boxes and these were no exception. These are corn and gluten-free and taste delicious with a bowl of vegetable lentil soup!

Organic Flavrz Liquid Drink Mix in Fruit Punch

Value: $5.99

This mix is made with real fruit and is 100% organic. It provides energy from green tea and is a great way to make your water taste a little yummier if you struggle to drink enough each day. I like that it is low sugar and is giving you extra energy naturally.

Baked Whole Food Bar Earnest Eats

Value: $1.40

This bar looks really tasty and it is heavy! I can imagine this would fill me up. It is wheat-free, vegan and has a little espresso to help wake you up.

Soy Greek Yogurt Good Greens Blueberry Bliss

Value: $2.99

I’m really excited to try this bar. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and each bar has 12g of protein! These bars have great reviews on amazon, some people say they taste like candy 🙂

Power Bar Performance Blends

Value: $5.00

These blends and I are good friends. They are super tasty, give you a nice bit of energy and have only 80 calories. I love having these around the house for a quick, on-the-go snacks.

Wheat-Grass Organic Seeds

Value: $3.40

I thought this was a really neat inclusion in the box! Wheat-Grass is a delicious snack and makes really good juices. Wheat-Grass is full of vitamin and minerals that are really good for your body and apparently can be easily grown inside. I can’t wait to try and grow this in my new house!

IMG_4050

Puritan’s Pride Rasberry Ketones

Value: $2.99

I wasn’t familiar with this type of supplement so I did a little research. There have been very limited studies that show that rasberry ketones may increase metabolism but no substantial proof has been found yet.

IMG_4051

Nawgan Alertness Aid Beverage

Value: $2.25

This drink looks perfect for me! I’m saving it till study time comes 🙂 This drink is specially formulated to sharpen focus and boost concentration, perfect!

IMG_4053

Delight Gluten-Free Magazine

Value: $4.00

I’ve never heard of this magazine before but I flipped through it and it is full of delicious gluten-free recipes. There were some yummy looking cocktails that I’m excited to try 🙂

There were also two gift cards in this box! One for $25 to WaveGear who sells sun glasses that float. And $75 to BistroMD, a service that delivers healthy, pre-made meals right to your door!

Verdict: The value of this box was $29.02 which is much more than the cost! I didn’t include the gift cards in the value of the box because they both would require you to spend a bit more money than the card offers. I really liked the products I received in my KlutchClub box, they were perfect for me and my college lifestyle! A lot of the products are great for studying and alertness and will come in handy once school starts. I’m really excited to try and grow my own wheatgrass too 🙂

Healthy Surprise Subscription Review!

Hi guys!

I can’t believe how fast July has passed us by. I hope you are enjoying box month!

Today’s review is for Healthy Surprise, a company that sends you full-size, healthy snacks to your door every month!

To see my first-impression of this box, watch the video below, or scroll on down to read my review 🙂

IMG_3779

This box was nice and heavy and I couldn’t wait to dig in. I’ve had such a great time discovering new, healthy snack brands and I wanted to see what Healthy Surprise had to offer!

IMG_3781

The Box: Healthy Surprise

The Cost: $33-$99/month depending on size of box

IMG_3782

Lydia’s Organics Rawkin Beet Chips Spicy

Value: $6.25

There are so many delicious veggies in these chips! I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to spiciness so I may make Tay try them but these could be a great alternative to potato chips!

IMG_3784

Just Tomatoes

Value: $2.35

I actually love raw tomatoes but don’t eat them as often as I should because I get lazy and don’t want to cut them. Sad I know. I’ll be very interested to try these dehydrated tomatoes and hope they are flavorful just like fresh ones. They have a great supply of Vitamin C & A and would be a great, on the go snack or as part of a lunch.

IMG_3785

NibNaks Crancherry Tart

Value: $2.25

Only ingredients: almonds, natural pitted cherries and cranberries ‘NUFF SAID

Just Great Stuff Cacao Acai Bar

Value: $2.00

This bar sounds so tasty and it is packed with antioxidants. I love a good chocolate and fruit combo so I’m excited to try this!

IMG_3786

Hail Merry Macaroons Strawberry

Value: $5.00

I was so thrilled to see these in the box! I became obsessed with macaroons while I was in France and anything that tastes yummy and helps me miss France less is ok with me! It’s great that these are gluten-free and vegan too!

IMG_3787

Plum Kids Organic Mashups Berry

Value: $1.00

I love these little squeezy snacks! This pack is way lower in sugar than a lot of brands I’ve seen and it’s made from 100% organic fruits and veggies. Yummy!

Gorge Delights Just Fruit Bar

Value: $1.50

The flavor combo of Pear Strawberry sounds delicious! They are a great source of fiber and would be perfect for an on-the-go snack.

IMG_3788

Beanitos White Bean with Sea Salt

Value: $1.40

I’ve tried a lot of bean chips lately and have been pleasantly surprised with their tastes. These chips are free of GMO ingredients and have a dash of sea salt on them. Mmm.

IMG_3789

The Daily Crave Veggie Chip

Value: $1.00

I’ve heard great things about this brand! Taylor’s sister is obsessed with their veggie sticks. I love any alternative to snacking on potato chips because sometimes you just need that salty fix. I’m curious to try these!

IMG_3790

Caveman Nuts

Value: $2.40

I love mixed nuts but they can be super high in salt content. These nuts are all raw and have no added salt or preservatives!

Righteously Raw Chocolate Pure Dark & Divine Mint

Value: $2.50

These little chocolates are super rich with antioxidants and have no refined sugar. My mom is obsessed with dark chocolate and like to find the highest cacao content that she can, so I will probably pass these along to her to enjoy 🙂

Verdict: The value of this box was $28.00, just under the cost. However, I love the fact that I have never heard of hardly any of these brands. It’s a lot of work finding new companies that produce honest, yummy, healthy food, and if there is a box that can help me do that, I think it’s worth the small extra cost. I love that the snacks are full-size and that I can taste a good amount before I decide if I want to buy them or not. This box would be great for someone with food allergies as they only send natural products that are corn, gluten and soy-free and are vegan. I loved this box!

IMG_3480

The Box: Gfreely

The Cost: $25/month (for 1 month, prices go down if you subscribe for more months)

Gfreely is a subscription box that finds a variety of tasty gluten-free snacks and foods and sends them to your door each month. They also will often send gluten-free recipes along with their boxes!

IMG_3481

I was super excited when I saw all of these snacks. It looked like a nice array of snacks.

IMG_3482

Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal in Goji Cacao

Value: $4.20

This cereal looks yummy and super convenient. It comes with a spoon so all you have to do is add cold water and you’re good to go! I was impressed to see that it is certified organic, gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO.

IMG_3483

Ginnybakes Coconut Oatmeal Bliss Cookies

Value: $2.00

Naturally I had to dig in to one snack as soon as I opened the box and it was these. And let me tell you, they are so good! I was a little surprised by how much I liked them. These would be perfect to take to class in the morning for a quick but nutritious breakfast. They’re super soft and chewy and also 100% organic and gluten-free!

IMG_3484

Moroccan Tagine Simmer Sauce by Saffron Road

Value: $3.69

I was excited to see this sauce in the box. It’s great to receive snacks but why not mix it up with some things we can cook with too? I have no idea how to cook Moroccan food, but I’m going to find out now that I have this yummy looking sauce to use!

IMG_3486

Kay’s Naturals Protein Pretzels

Value: $1.45

I’ll be the first to say I’m not a huge fan of pretzels but these cinnamon sugar ones caught my attention. These are made with lean soy protein and are full of fiber. I do love cinnamon and sugar, so I’ll give these a shot 🙂

IMG_3487

Rice with Adzuki Bean Snack Chips with Natural Salt

Value: $1.50

So these looked incredibly tasty too and I didn’t wait too long to try these chips either. These may be my new favorite chip. They are salty and super crunchy and have a nice flavor, not just like a boring tortilla chip. These would be great with any kind of dip too!

IMG_3488

Halfpops Natural Butter & Pure Ocean Sea Salt Popcorn

Value: $1.50

My heart rose and then sank when I saw this snack. I love love love popcorn but I unfortunately can’t eat it with my braces. So this snack will be passed on to someone in the fam. However, it looks super yummy. It’s air-popped locally in my home-town of Seattle. When I get my braces off I’ll be trying this brand.

IMG_3489

Chiquita Banana Fruit Chips

Value: $3.00

This is a nice big pack of banana chips. Personally, I’m not a big fan of dried fruit but for someone who enjoys them I imagine these will be yummy. And I do like Chiquita Bananas!

IMG_3491

Graw Bar Original

Value: $3.00

If I didn’t think I’d bore you by listing the ingredients of this bar I would. They are all natural and packed with protein and yummies. This will be perfect to throw in my purse or gym bag and looks nice and filling. It is also raw and organic.

Sun Cups Sunflower Butter and Dark Chocolate

Value: $1.67

I am super curious about these! They are organic, nut-free and gluten-free and they look heavenly! What a great option for people with nut-allergies! I’ve never had sunflower butter but I’m really excited to try out these chocolate cups.

Verdict: The value of this box is $22.01. I realize this isn’t a high-value box but I am still impressed by all of the snacks inside! A lot of these brands I have never seen in stores, so if you really are looking for some new gluten-free choices, I think this is a great option to help you make your life a little easier. I myself have already found a new tortilla-chip alternative after just one box from gfreely!
