Bestowed Box Review + $5 coupon

Bestowed is a monthly healthy snack/food subscription box curated by a celebrity nutritionist named Heather Baur.  It is $19 a month including shipping, and you get your first month free if you sign up for an annual plan. They send 5-7 items each month, not including bonus things like recipes and things of that nature. Use code 5OFFBSTOWED01.  As you could probably tell by now, I have a slight obsession with food, so I was very happy when Bestowed gratuitously sent me this box to review. 
 It wasn't completely stuffed to the brim, but that is not necessarily a bad thing!
Hail Merry Almonds in Vanilla Maple ($2)- I love Hail Merry products! Their macaroons, and their almonds now too (not the granola).  These were pretty awesome, I never really thought about vanilla with almonds.

California Extra Virgin Olive Oil ($0.60)- Olive oil is something that will always go to use. And these are in little packets so I'll just use them for frying up some meat or something like that. The brand is what I get regularly anyways. 
KIND bar in Dark Chocolate Chili Almond ($2)- I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds tasty, because I like pretty much anything with a little kick.

Dr. Praeger's FREE ITEM coupon ($4)- Dr. Praeger's sells mostly veggie burgers I think. I've only had a veggie burger once in my life before, so I think they deserve another chance. Free coupons will always be used in my life.

Info booklet- I really like it when boxes include an info packet with descriptions of all the items. This one had really long descriptions, and even had some lifestyle tips on the back!
Mantiboba Hemp Hearts ($3)- I've gotten these in another box and they are pretty awesome. Hemp hearts are super healthy for you, I'll just add them to random things I eat.

Matt's Munchies Banana ($2)- My favorite item in the box! I would describe them as an fruit roll up for adults (even though I still eat them).  It came in a bunch of little bite-sized squares which was nice. And the flavor didn't taste artificially at all, just banana!

The total value of this box was about fourteen bucks. But this was just a review box, so I think it was just to see what kind of products they would send. I checked out reviews of the monthly box and all of them were above the $20 range, so that's nice. As for the products, I would say they are pretty awesome. All of them were/are going to be used very shortly. 

Verdict: I am debating if I should subscribe.

**I recieved this product free of charge in exchange for an honest review, getting it free didn't affect my opinions in any way.
