My Review:
Of all the monthly subscription services that I have tried or seen reviews of, this is probably the last one I would have expected myself to like.  I'm not athletic, not a fan of exercise though I am a fan of losing weight and becoming healthier- so when I decided to try this out for my review - I was pretty skeptical of what a monthly box from BULU could contain that would interest me in trying it every month.

The box from BULU arrived with a few small items inside:

~ Beauty Bursts: Gourmet Collagen Soft Chews Dietary Supplement in fresh mint chocolate flavor from NeoCell

  *a tiny little wrapped candy about a 1/2 inch long - tough to chew like caramels - flavor is ok but not something I would want to try again if I plan to keep my teeth intact.

~ MESTRENGTH ~ live elevated electrolytes and creatine - 8.75g powder to mix in my "favorite drink" -

  *does not go well with Mt. Dew - at least I don't think it would so I tried it with water - has a bit of a citrisy flavor.  Not a bad taste just one I would have to get used to if I drank it regularly

~ Smarty Pants ~ Gummy Vitamins for Grownups -serving size is 6!! 

  *Yes, 6 Gummy Chewy vitamins every day - sorry but I'm not that fond of gummies.  Would be ok for those who don't mind gummy chews - but I'm not a fan.

~ WhiteShield - 2 tiny packets of Natural Coffee Stain Prevention for a Beautiful Smile 

  * love this idea, just pour it into your coffee - mix it up and it is supposed to prevent that horrible coffee stain from staying on your teeth.  I don't drink coffee, but I like the idea of preventing unnecessary stains and keeping my teeth as white as possible.

~ KIND - nuts & spices dark chocolate chili almond bar.  All Natural, Non GMO, Gluten Free, No Sugar Alcohol, Low Glycemic, Low sodium, only 5g of sugar.

 *ok, I'm not a fan of dark chocolate but don't hate it either - now putting chili in my chocolate does not encourage me to eat it!  I tried this - and at first was pleasantly surprised to find I did actually like it - then the heat arrived.  I'm not very tolerant of spicy foods - and though the heat from the chilies is mild for me (which means most people wouldn't even notice it) it is not something I would prefer with my chocolate bar.  If the chili was left out, I think i would have really liked this bar and even looked for more to purchase.

So, being the reviewer I am - I went on a search to see what other flavors they have - they do have more of the Nuts & Spices, but also have Fruit & Nut (apple cinnamon pecan!!!), PLUS (peanutbutter, dark choc & protein among others), Honey Mustard, Honey Smoked BBQ and many others - so I won't discourage anyone from checking out KIND - I'd personally love to try some of their other flavors!

To be fair, I had my spice loving son try it and he said "it's ok" - he didn't seem to care much for it.

~ Tapaz 2 Go - a package of lentil crackers w/sea salt & classic hummus

 * I love the crackers and like the hummus.  I am usually a big fan of hummus, but this one seems a bit sweet to me.  Almost like it has honey in it.  I prefer my hummus plain or with garlic or sundried tomatoes so having it be sweet is not my preference.  Again I had my son try it - he loves it - loves the crackers and the hummus - his exact words "that's good . . . that's really good, can I have it?"

Final thoughts - though this BULU box is not something I personally would sign up for, I must say that for those who prefer healthy, gluten free eating; and trying samples of new things to improve health and fitness, this is the perfect box for you - and it starts at only $10 a month! Not bad for samples of weight loss, nutrition and fitness items to try!
