What I Reviewed:
Conscious Box was nice enough to send me one of their monthly ‘boxes’ to sample and review! The idea behind this company is so cool!! From their site:
Conscious Box is a monthly delivery of pure and sustainable products that are handpicked from businesses that care for the planet—just like you.
Handpicked products delivered monthly

[Crunch Master crackers, MixtBag tortilla chips]
[acai drink mix, Tera’s Whey Pomegranate Protein Powder, Java Juice coffee extract, natural coffee creamer]
[mint tea mints, an all natural lozenge, olivella eye cream, EBOOST antioxidant drink mix]
[yellow tomato seeds, coupon for a morning sunshine breakfast cookies, a 15 dollar credit to an online beauty store, a 5 dollar credit to Hip Mountain Mama]
Overall I thought the variety of products in the box was perfect! From beauty to snacks to apparel! And everything with a healthy/natural/eco-friendly flare to it! Definitely “conscious” products…the people behind these companies are conscious of their impact on the world around them, on their customers, and on the environment for sure! Its awesome that Conscious Box promotes such well rounded businesses. Plus, signing up to receive a box from them each month allows you to get exposed to so many cool products! I love discovering the newest stuff on the market so Conscious Box is very appealing to someone like me.
Thanks again CB for the sample box!
In addition to the fun delivery from Conscious Box, I also got a very exciting package from GNU!!! GNU bars are one of my FAVORITE varieties and are actually one of the first product reviews I ever did on the blog (I won’t be linking to that post however…the old ones are so embarrassing HA!).
When I heard GNU was coming out with new flavors I wanted to get my hands on them immediately! Luckily they showed up at my door pretty quickly!
No words. Well actually I have a few. YUM. The description on this bar said it tasted like a Blueberry Poptart…but I would have to disagree. ITS BETTER! Loved the whole pieces of dried blueberry and how the bar really tasted like fresh blueberries…a hint of vanilla as well!
I am a carrot fiend so I knew I was bound to like a bar that featured them! So cinnamony and fragrant! I could smell its sweetness as soon as I opened the package. And it actually did have a flavor reminiscent of carrot cake! The rice crisps were especially delicious in this bar. Loved the spices too!
Can you believe I have never actually had a blondie?! So I really didn’t know what to expect with this one but if real homemade blondies are anything like this bar then I know I would love them! This tasted so caramel-y and delicious! The chocolate chips added just the right amount of sweetness and the texture was so amazingly chewy.
Out of the three I would say the blueberry was my favorite…but the other two were equally as satisfying! SO happy to have these new flavors to choose from and I can’t wait until they hit store shelves! Hopefully that happens soon because I am already craving more of these!
Do you have any questions for me? I need a few more before I can do a full Q and A post this week!
What is your favorite bar brand?
Ultimate bar flavor that you would love to see out on the market?! GO!
Ps: Anyone looking for a guest post? I wrote one up a while ago for someone and it was never used! I don’t want to waste it!
