I love getting boxes in the mail, although sometimes it does require a little fancy footwork with the hubby…
‘What this old thing?!’ doesn’t work so well when you are holding a box full of clothes/boots/food in your hands!
Anywoo, about a week ago I received a box from KLUTCHclub to review their monthly service.
It’s a great concept, and one that I was intrigued to try. For a monthly fee ($16-$18), you receive a box packed with product samples that value over $100 and fit into a healthy living/lifestyle. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the number of products and the sizes of the product samples with the $16 price tag!
Since this blog is mainly for fun, I made a promise to myself that I would only review or accept products that I really like or enjoy using/trying. I researched their recent reviews in Glamour and Shape and decided to give it a try!
The box was loaded with goodies, and being the pregnant, constantly hungry person that I am, I ripped into the snacks immediately!
The box came with a product guide right on top, outlining each product, why it was chosen and how to use it! This was a great tool for some of the items I wasn’t quite sure what to do with.. (flax meal, I’m looking at you!).
After I read all the information, I lined up the goodies to try and decide where to start! I ended up going ‘nerd’ and reading about each one and also reading the ingredients on each of the packages. I was relieved that I didn’t have to use the hubby’s Ph.D. to decode any of the ingredients and I was comfortable with everything listed.
I opened the Acai energy chews right away and really liked them! Good flavor, lots of vitamins and perhaps a bit of extra energy (although I’ve been so tired these days it’s hard to keep my eyes open!). I also broke into the Good Greens Chocolate Peanut Butter bites. Honestly, it wasn’t the same as a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup, but it did curb my chocolate and peanut butter craving, so I’ll deem that a success! I’ve tucked the other two into my carry-on bag for our upcoming trip. At 50 calories and individually wrapped they are the perfect travel food!
I also loved the Pure Matters Protein powder- I used it in a simple shake this past weekend. Just milk, Pure Matters Chocolate Protein powder and a frozen banana. It was a great mid-afternoon snack and again, curbed that chocolate craving that seems to be stubbornly persistent! I’m usually pretty picky with powders, I hate anything that tastes like chemicals.. so, I was really plain in how I decided to prep it and didn’t have a problem with the taste at all!
Two last notes, without pictures… I’ve been using the King Arthur Flour Whole Flax Meal sprinkled on my yogurt- it adds extra fiber and the taste isn’t bad (although it did take me a second try to get used to it! I recommend starting with a fruit yogurt, not a plain one… ).
I also really like the Yurbuds Sport Headphones. They were designed for women, and they’ve stayed put on both my treadmill walks and my neighborhood dog walks! I’ll consider that a victory! It’s nice not to have to adjust them constantly!
So, all in all, I really enjoyed receiving the box and having the opportunity to review it. It’s certainly something that I’ll consider continuing for myself and may even consider for friends and family presents during the holidays! It’s something that I think my sister would really enjoy receiving as well..
