Conscious Box, who kindly sent me this box to review, is a monthly box of healthy, GMO-free goods to try, love, and buy. Every month, your box features a variety of food, bath, beauty, and household products. You can opt for Classic, Vegan or Gluten-Free options and can select between the Plus box ($19.95) and the Taster box ($9.95). I received the Plus box to review.
Conscious Box ships via USPS around the 15th of the month. I received this in mid-August – probably right before they shipped their August boxes out.
I subscribed to Conscious Box a while ago (well over a year ago), with a Groupon deal, but heard they have changed since then. My first thought was that this box contained more snacks than the previous boxes I have received.
The July 2014 Conscious Box theme is “Dig Deep” and included the following products:
~Vintage Chips Pasta Chips (Alfredo): I am always surprised at how good these pasta chips are. I have had them in a few boxes before and they are excellent. I actually like these more than real Alfredo sauce. (Note: The information card doesn’t list these and instead lists Beanfield Snacks: Bean & Rice Chips: Pico de Gallo).
~Hemp Hearts: I don’t love these alone, but mixed onto a salad they work well. Plus they give you a little extra protein which is nice.
~Buddy Fruits Fruit Break: From what I can tell this is the adult’s version of those kids applesauces / fruit pouches. I think the difference is that it’s larger than the kids ones? Anyway, I am going to give this one to L. He loves pouches and is always hungry. I cannot get past the texture.
~Cliff Bar (Crunchy Peanut Butter): This is one of the better Cliff bar flavors I have tried. They are very filing and are great to grab on the go.
~ChocoSlim: Meh. I am not overly excited by this. There is only enough for one use so it’d be hard to tell if it works.
~Everly (Peach Mango): Not bad, but I don’t like it as much as I like Spark. It’s certainly handy to throw in your bag and just add to a water bottle. It’s got 0 calories and no sugar and I didn’t get any of the after taste that sometimes comes along with products like this.
~Environne Fruit & Vegetable Wash: Should I admit that I don’t use a fruit & vegetable wash? I rinse them in the sink, but I don’t use a special wash. Is this really bad? Do you use a vegetable wash?
~Truvia: I would have loved a bigger sample of this so I could try to bake with it. I’m not sure what we will end up using this for. Maybe just sprinkled on some strawberries?
~Natralia Anti-Itch Cream & Heel Balm: I really liked both of these. The anti-itch cream helped L out a ton yesterday after we went geocaching and got bit by mosquitos and I liked the heel balm. I will be on the look out for more of this cream for sure.
~Coupons: Conscious box also includes an assortment of coupons in each box. This month also included a wine.com gift card. It’s actually more of a voucher because you have to spend money to be able to use it. I would have rather just had some additional samples!
I didn’t do a cost breakdown on the July 2014 Conscious Box, but there were 11 samples in the “Classic Plus” box which works out to about $1.80 per sample. I would have loved to see some bigger samples in here and maybe even a full sized product like I remember them doing in the past.
