Who doesn’t love to get presents in the mail each month? I know I do. I’ve tried a few subscription boxes the past few years. Some I love (Pop Sugar Must Have) and some are just ok. I was excited when I was sent this Bulu Box from Sweat Pink.
(I was provided a Bulu Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are, as always, my own.)
How does it work?
Each month you receive a box of 4-5 samples of fitness, health or nutrition related products. The idea is that the sample size will give you a “taste” of the product so that you can decide whether it’s something you might like to purchase. You are then able to purchase full size products on the Bulu site and accrue points that you can use for future merchandise.
Here’s what came in my box:
I am not a big protein powder person mostly because I find them really bad tasting. I had seen a couple of other bloggers talk about their love for Quest so when I discovered it in the box, I was eager to give it a try. I received the Vanilla Milkshake flavor. I did not see any instructions of the back of the package of how much liquid to add so I guessed and added 8 ounces of skim milk and shook it up. I was pleasantly surprised that honestly it tasted like a vanilla milkshake! I did not experience any of the mealy, gritty taste that I’ve found with some other powders. I like that it is available in single serve packs for convenience.
The Quest package has 100 calories with less than 1 gram of sugar and 22 grams of protein.Would I try it again? Yes!
I am very picky about the fuel I use on my runs and bike rides. I prefer the chews or blocks over gels purely because of texture. I was excited to see there was a pack of Movit Energy Gummies in the box. I’ve never seen them before and decided to take them onto my run.
The texture was similar to that of a gummy bear so if you like those, you will like Movit Gummies. The citrus flavor was mild and pleasant. Movit Gummies have 60 calories per serving with added CoQ10 and folic acid (not commonly found in other energy chews).
I love having the opportunity to test out products in small quantities before committing to buying them. If you like to do that as well, you can get 50% off of a 3 month subscription with code: SWEATPINK here.
