I’ll admit, healthy samples can be scary. Some that I’ve seen just look or sound inedible, lol. So my experience with Bulu Box is worth talking about, because my box was GREAT! Here’s a little feedback on what the items included in my box, to give you an idea of some of the amazing products included in the Bulu Box service!
SK Energy Shot “Flavor: strawberry lemonade”
Very tasty.. these usually take like some kind of battery acid or chemistry lab experiment, but this one was actually GOOD! It’s not thick or mouth coating, so there’s no long-lingering taste (not that it would a bad thing if there were, since this one actually tastes good!) and it’s got the consistency of water, so it’s very easy to drink. If you’re a fan of those sour drops you might’ve had as a kid, you remember the ones.. came in a super-tiny little squeeze bottle and would make your face pucker like crazy?! Yeah, those. Well, this tastes like those.. minus the face-puckering sourness, lol. So the delicious of candy, the ease to drink of water AND the caffeine of a 12oz. cup of joe? I’m impressed. OH.. and the biggest plus.. NO JITTERS! Those *other* energy shots make me feel like I just got an adreneline shot to the heart (hang on, I’m singing Bon Jovi now.. ok I’m back!) but not with these!! I just got a nice little buzz of energy without those jitters. Awesome product!
Simple Diet Dietary Supplement
Hubs took these, since thanks to my delicious cooking (his words) has made him pack on a few pounds more than he’d like to be carrying. Since he’s not a bear and does NOT need to store fat for winter, these seemed like something easy he could take. He’s not a fan of the drinks or bars. He said they were easy to take, though they had just a bit of an odd flavor. He did say he would continue to take these if we bought them.. so I guess that’s two thumbs up from him! What can I say, he’s a man of few words, lol.
PowBab (Baobab superfruit chew) “Flavor: tasty pomegranate acai berry”
YUM! These smell like bubblegum, taste like yogurt with the chew of taffy. What a pleasure to eat a “health chew” that doesn’t have a gritty texture or a weird after-taste. My mouth STILL tastes like delicious fruit. Two came in the pack, so I’m saving one for tomorrow (suggested serving is one per day) and I must say.. I’m looking FORWARD to it.
Energems (energy “gem” bites) “Flavor: chocolate”
Let me put these to you in an easy way… GIANT. DARK CHOCOLATE. M&Ms. That’s what they remind me of.. SOOOO good. Not only do these have the perk (get it? PERK!) of an energy boost, they also have vitamins B & D which just makes them even better! They do have a slight bit of a bitter after-taste, but I assume that’s from the dark chocolate, which I’m not normally a fan of… so there’s a chance that’s just me not being used to dark chocolate, forgive me!! Haha!
..a little later update: These definitely gave me a little BOOST, no jitters! Just thought y’all should know they actually WORK!!
Balance Bar “Flavor: double chocolate brownie”
This is not as gross as I was prepared for it to be.. I must be honest here. I have had Balance bars in the past and hated every one. This one surprised me. No, I won’t be running out to buy a box, but I didn’t throw it out! It does have a legitimate brownie taste with a nice chocolate coating, so it feels more decadent than a protein bar.
Teeccino “Flavors: Dandelion Dark Roast or Vanilla Nut
Call me Honest Abe here.. I had ZERO interest in trying this. It’s a tea that’s supposed to give you the “feeling” of coffee, without the caffeine and acidity. Um.. well a beverage without caffeine really has no place in my house, lol!!! Sorry y’all, I am a pretty open-minded person, but I knew when I saw these I wasn’t going to try them.. just not my “cup of tea” – sorry, couldn’t help it.
As an added little bonus, they sent an offer for 20% off the book “Eat This, Not That” with a sample recipe from the book! Not anything we’ll eat in my house, lol (Spinach-Artichoke Manicotti – not happening for me and hubs) but my mom will enjoy that recipe.
So to wrap it up, overall, I was impressed with the items in my Bulu Box. Without having selected any of these samples specifically, I actually liked nearly everything Bulu Box picked for me! I had a great time trying these products out and want to thank Bulu Box for the experience! I think you’ll enjoy the service, and because you’re such a loyal HTSFF reader.. I’ve got a special offer to share with you!! 🙂
