The Goods

  1. Smarty Pants Mens Complete and Womens Complete Jellies. Regular price: ~$2.00

These both have Omega 3 fish oils and are free of GMOs, gluten, synthetic colors, artificial flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives.I have to say these are AMAZING. So incredibly soft for “gummies”, these are better than any fruit snacks I’ve had. I ate the womens AND the mens, it’s probably best I don’t get a bottle of these because I’d eat them all in one sitting, lol!

2. Fru-licious Freeze Dried Apples. Regular price: $1.00

image

This is 100% freeze dried apples, and is gluten and GMO-free with no added sugar. I really loved these. I’ve had freeze dried fruit before, but it’s usually kind of “half” freeze dried and chewy and dry, but these are completely freeze dried, the texture of astronaut ice cream, and must use super sweet apples because they’re as sweet as candy. Yummmyyy!

3. XyliChew Cinnamon Chewing Gum. Regular price: $1.61

image

This gum is GMO free with no artificial flavors. It’s also gluten free and vegan. It tastes great, and is really sweet despite that it’s sugar and artificial sweetener-free. It is sweetened with Birch Xylitol extracted from US forests. Xylitol helps slow the rate and amount of acid production in the mouth, reducing the acid-producing bacteria that erode teeth enamel. So it is sweet, cinnaminy(??), AND protects your teeth! As for how long the flavor lasts, I couldn’t tell you because I chew gum and swallow it like regular candy. I’m weird.

4. VanaPain PM Pain Relief. Regular price: $3.20

image

This is gluten and sugar free, non-habit forming, and works in minutes to alleviate pain and aid with sleep. I was not in pain when I tried this, so I can’t comment on it’s pain relieving capabilities, but it did help me sleep. It was sickeningly sweet despite having no sugar, and tasted absolutely terrible. Since I don’t have pain, I’ll just take Benedryl for the same effect. (The sleeping aid in this is the main ingredient in Benedryl).

5. Vital 4U – Probiotic Fiber Drink. Regular price: $2.00

image

When I saw “drink from the pouch” I automatically assumed it would taste like cough syrup or have a medicine taste and I’d have to choke it down. Surprisingly it’s actually tasty. I associated the experience more with how I feel about vitamin gummies, that taste good and I enjoy taking them as opposed to forcing down a medicine-y supplement. Pretty neat.

6. Pumpkin Seeds – Personal Trainer Food. Regular price: $2.00

image

This is from PersonalTrainerFood.com, which is a 28 day weight loss meal delivery program, which delivers healthy lunches, dinners, and/or snacks to your door. These seeds are not seasoned, they’re not really good or bad… just a crunchy textured blandness.

7. Original Nut Crunch – Bakery on Main. Regular price: $1.25

image

This Nut Crunch is certified gluten free, non-GMO project verified and dairy & casein free. It is made with cashews, almonds, pecans, and walnuts. This is a crunchy granola and nut snack that tasted great on yogurt! They’re not very sweet and make a great light snack by themselves as well. Sweet, subtle, crunchy goodness.

Value

I came up with a total of $13.06 for the items in this month’s box. I used a code to get 3 months for $10.00, so this is a pretty good value for me. My boyfriend saw the box and said that a box of samples is a rip-off, but I kind of like this box. It’s fun to try new things, even if it is just samples. I paid $10.00 for 3 months so I can’t expect too much.

Sign up for Bulu Box using this link and code “THREEFORONE” for three months of boxes for only $10.00!
