My Bountiful Bulu Box!

I am very lucky to be an ambassador for Bulu Box. Bulu Box is the first subscription box of its kind. It focuses on health, nutrition, and weight-loss. Each month the custom box is filled with a new mix of 4-5 premium samples to try. Shipping is free and you're able to cancel whenever you choose! Currently, they have a choice between the weight-loss box (which I chose) and the nutrition/supplement box (which my boyfriend was bummed I didn't choose). On to the box!
 
 
Mediterranean Snacks Tapaz 2 Go (pic from amazon.com)
Truth be told, before receiving this, I had never tried hummus. Yes, seriously! It just never really appealed to me. BUT now I'm a fan! How exciting to try something for the first time and actually turn out liking it! Mental note: try new undiscovered foods more often. Together, the hummus and the crackers were only 250 calories! My only complaint about the package was the fact that the lentil crackers (another first) were mostly broken in small pieces. You can bet I still salvaged most of them and I was surprised to find I still had a lot of hummus left......yes, that means I just threw caution to the wind and licked the plastic container. No crackers, no problem! That's how much I loved it! Hummus virgin no more!
 
Smarty Pants Adult Gummy Vitamins (pic from Smarty Pants)
 
I am not big on taking vitamins. I just hate that medicine-y taste they always seem to have. Ok, the Flintstones chewable vitamins, I did like as a kid. These vitamins don't taste anything like vitamins! It's amazing. They really taste like little gum drop candies. I'm very happy to have found these! Also, looking into the product more, I found out they have a weight management one now. That one looks to be twice the price of the regular gummies, so we will have to see. I'm sold on these though!
 

KIND dark choc chili almond bar

I'm trying out protein bars so getting this in my Bulu Box was great. I did love the flavor of the bar, but unfortunately, I didn't like that it was so hard to bite into. I wish it was a bit softer, I would have loved it. I will look into other bars from KIND though, definitely.
 
NeoCell Beauty Bursts
I was super excited about these. Mint chocolate, how can you go wrong? Apparently, when you add beauty nutrients like collagen type 1 & 3. I hated these. I feel bad typing that, but I'm honest. It tasted sort of medicine-y and it was like you had to chew and chew and chew the one piece. I'm all for improving my hair and nails, which it boasts, but not at that price. :(
 
MeStrength electrolytes & creatine drink mix (pic from MeStrength)

 
I really like this. My box contained the lemon lime flavor. I am not a big water drinker. I'm so picky. It has to be ice cold. Also, I have been using the Crystal Light things you squirt into bottles. I know it might be bad, but it's the only way right now! I like MeStrength though. My boyfriend is always adding creatine to his water and now I see what the fuss is about! I want to try other flavors now!
 
 
WhiteShield natural coffee stain prevention (pic from WhiteShield)
I like the idea of these. Preventing coffee stains? Just by adding it in your daily cup of coffee? Okay! We aren't huge coffee drinkers at home right now, but the occasional Starbucks trip will merit the use of some of these.
 
 
Right now, Bulu Box is running a special in which you get a free year of Women's Health magazine with any $10 subscription box! Also, using the code BULUGAN119, you can get 50% off any box subscription!  If you're interested in learning more about new healthy products click here ! I'm excited for my next Bulu Box!

  1. Everything in the box looks delicious! I LOVE hummus. I literally have it everyday for lunch and I can't eat anything but gummy vitamins. Really seems like a good box to invest in : )

  6. I was never a fan of vitamins either unless they were the chewable or tummies - but I definitely overdose on those, so do they really help me in the end?? ;)
    This box looks great - I'm definitely checking it out!
