My February Bulu Box arrived the other day. For those of you that don't know, Bulu Box is the best way to discover vitamin, supplement, health and weight loss products! You can choose between Bulu Box or Bulu Box Weight Loss. Once you're signed up, you can earn an easy 50 points (that's $5!) or more each month by reviewing, sharing and completing short surveys about your products and samples. Use your Reward Points to purchase full-size versions of the products you like best. (that was the description straight from their website). It costs $10/month with free shipping. This was my third month receiving it and I received the Bulu Box Weight Loss version.
Bulu Box sends a bunch of coupons and advertisements in their boxes plus a nice information card explaining each of the products.
The Good Bean Roasted Chickpea Snack(~$0.75 for .75 oz sample) – This is a 90 calories sample of roasted chickpeas with sea salt. I like hummus, which is made of chickpeas however I’m not so sure if these will be as good. I plan to throw them in my snack drawer at work to try one day soon. The regular size is 2.5 oz and is 120 calories.
SoyJoy (~$1.58) - I haven’t tried this particular flavor but the last time I tried one of these I wasn’t impressed enough to buy another. Hopefully this flavor will be a little bit better. These bars use real fruit, whole soy and are gluten-free.
Power Crunch Proto Whey Ultraburn Protein(~$2.78) – the last protein they sent was actually pretty tasty but since I already do Shakeology (and LOVE IT), I didn’t purchase it. This one advertises to support fat loss and maintain lean muscles and only has 130 calories per serving (well, in the Vanilla café flavor that I received).
Fruit Chia Bar (~$1.67) – Chia seeds seem to be the new healthy food buzz word lately so I’m curious to try this. These bars are created using real fruit and all natural chia seeds and are supposed to be good for a candy alternative. Gluten and GMO free as well.
Chosen Foods MetaPowder High Fiber Blend Sticks (~$1.07) - This is apparently a weight loss drink stick? I’ve never heard of a drink stick before but it appears to be some sort of fiber blend that you put in your drinks (smoothies). It is supposed to help support your immune system, increase healthy gut bacteria, improve metabolism and aid in weight control. Sounds kind of like Plexus.
Total Estimated Value of Box: ~$7.85
Total Cost of Box: $3.75 - it's normally $10 (free shipping), I paid less because I found a deal on Plum District
Overall Impression: I’ve seen much better varieties of Bulu Box out there (more food samples), and looks like after I updated my profile since last month, this one is a little better, I have one month left on my 3 month subscription and am at this time I’m more than likely not going to continue as I’m not even getting $10 worth of stuff each month.
Did you get Bulu Box? Were you impressed?
