Here’s the Box Breakdown
All we could find upon first inspection is the actual bag that house all of this boxes goodies!
Everything that we received in The Well Necessities Spring Collection. This was one of the fullest boxes that we’ve ever received. There was LOADS of stuff in here and we could NOT wait to get our hands on it!

So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert was a detailed pamphlet that breaks down each item, why it was included in the collection and where you can get it. There are also some subscriber only discounts included as well!
I Heart Keenwah Quinoa Clusters
(included discount code)
These little clusters are guilt free! Tasty chocolate and sea salt create a delicious bite sized flavor that is unmatched!
We have had these before and were really excited to be having them again!
It’s almost like eating trail mix and chocolate!
Salba Chia Seeds
(included discount code)
We received a single serving packet of these raw chia seeds. Rich in fiber, protein and omega 3’s these add a great punch of wholesome nutrients to salads, smoothies, yogurt, or oatmeal. 
Plant Fusion Vanilla Bean Powder
This dietary supplement is completely plant based and contains no dairy, soy, or gluten. This vanilla Bean flavored mixture can be added to smoothies, baked goods or oatmeal to enhance protein. Lately we’ve really been digging these sorts of protein enhanced drink mixtures – we’re pumped to try a new brand.
Organic Gemini Tigernuts
(included coupon code)
Don’t let the name fool you, these little squishy snacks are not nuts at all! This is a root vegetable with a rich and nutty flavor. They’re prebiotic and also contain as much iron as red meat.
We had never heard of these before and after trying them we are really impressed! One of our favorite finds from this subscription box
Pukka Three Ginger Tea
A familiar favorite. While we’ve had Pukka Tea before we’d never had this particular flavor before and it’s scrumptious but kind of difficult to describe. We would describe it as warm and snuggly? Does that make sense? If you like hot tea this is definitely one to try. 
Mediterra Savory Bar
(included discount code)
This isn’t our first Mediterra product but this is our first Black Olives and Walnut bar and because we adore both we couldn’t wait to give this a go! Inspired by the Mediterranean diet this is rich in heart healthy fats.
There’s a mild onion-y flavor. This soft bar is earthy and filling (in fact we couldn’t eat this in just one sitting!)
Truth Bar
(included discount code)
This chocolate dipped coconut flavored bar promotes good digestion, fights infection and enhances the immune system.
Definitely for coconut lovers! We shared this with the kids and it was delicious!
Better Body Foods PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder
This all natural, gluten free and vegan peanut butter powder boasts 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter. To boot you can add this to oats, smoothies or make your very own “nice cream”. We can’t wait to try this out – looks yummy!

Sinfully Thin Blue Corn Popcorn
(included discount code)

Popcorn is kind of our jam, so to try a unique popcorn like this blue corn variety that we had never realized was a thing was really exciting for us!

Although it’s made from blue corn it doesn’t look much different than traditional popcorn. This pre-portioned popcorn makes the perfect alternative to other less healthy snacks

Brami Snacking Lupini Beans
(included discount code)

Award for cutest packaging, right here! Beyond all that these beans are the edamame of the Mediterranean culture. The Lupini Beans are a great post workout pick me up because of their high protein content

They look a bit like a lima bean but taste… like a pickle! These are filling and delicious! Definitely our favorite find in this subscription box

Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal
(included discount code)

Never miss breakfast again! This Gluten Free oatmeal is a perfect breakfast for those mornings you are running out of the door. Just add water or milk! Alternatively you can combine this with the plant protein powder or PB Fit for even more wholesome goodness!

Ojio Sport Thunderbolt Electrolyte

This fruit punch flavored dietary supplement helps prevent cramping and helps you stay hydrated, maintain your energy and your stamina. It also happens to be vegan, gluten free, and GMO free!
Just mix with water.

NuNaturals NuStevia Cocoa Syrup
(included discount code)

We were totally confused in the unboxing. We thought this was a sugar type additive. However it is in fact a cocoa syrup. We’ve actually had a coconut oil chocolate sauce before and it was heavenly so we are really excited to try this out!

Cocokind Lip Balm
(included discount code)

The organic coconut oil products that Cocokind makes are pure and smell delicious! This lip balm contains no chemicals and it’s even water free!

The flavor was minty and the texture was really oil rich and creamy. This is a great lip balm for conditioning.

Sir Kensington Ketchup

(included discount code)

Great ketchup flavor with all natural ingredients! This ketchup retains a traditional ketchup flavor without being overly processed like other popular brands you find in the grocery store. We haven’t had a chance to try this yet but definitely will be!

Sun Chlorella Granules

These granules are good for immune health, digestion, and aid in ridding the body of toxins. All you have to do is sprinkle them in your drink or over your favorite dish and you’ll have an added health boost!

Simply 7 Quinoa Chips

These Sea Salt Flavored chips are made with all natural quinoa and have a hearty, earthy flavor

These have a much deeper and more complex flavor than traditional potato chips and we personally love the crispiness as these are just a wee bit thicker than the average chip!

Kuli Kuli Pure Moringa Vegetable Powder
(included discount code)

Moringa is an antioxidant with cancer fighting properties and contains immune boosting Vitamin C. Simply add this to hot water or hot tea to harness the moringa leaf powers. If you are feeling really daring add to yogurt, granola, oats or even eggs!

Banza Shells Made From Chickpeas
(included discount code)

We are excited to try these although we haven’t had a chance yet. This is a break from your run of the mill pasta and contains 25 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber. We are curious about the flavor as we just love chick peas! The color of these is also really similar to a regular piece of pasta unlike wheat pastas which usually look much darker

Berry’d Treasure Nourish Snacks

(included discount code)
This brand is founded by NBC’s Jay Bauer who is a registered dietician from the Today show!
This berry granola is pre-portioned so you get the exact right amount. Great for topping yogurt, granola or smoothies.

The bite sized pieces were perfect for eating right out of the bag though!

Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Squeeze
(discount code included)

These cute squeeze packs of oatmeal contain all the great nourishment of oatmeal in an easy to consume package! We tried only a small bit and passed the rest on for the kids to try! It was very good, and to our delight not overly sweet!

The pirate enjoying his plunder

Eat Healthy Designs Thank You Berry Much Card
(discount code included)

A clever way to say thank you! This company was founded by registered dieticians!

We love the back as well. Simply adorable!

Simply Gum in Natural Mint

Beautifully packaged this is the ONLY gum on the market to contain absolutely no synthetic ingredients! We are avid gum chewers so trying an all natural gum alternative was a task we felt pretty confidant we could accomplish

The gum itself wasn’t wrapped in individual papers. There were however these small papers in the side of the box so you could easily dispose of your gum

The gum looked a little like a pellet and the flavor was minty but also has a bit of anise flavor. We’re reminded of Fisherman’s Friend cough drops

NuNaturals Nustevia 

A zero calorie all natural sweetener!
We received two of these packets in The Well Necessities Collection

Cocokind Organic Facial Repair Serum

(discount code included)
If there is one universal truth about us it’s our love for skincare products! We’ve never tried this brand or a coconut facial serum so we got straight to it. It’s an oily substance and smells very much like coconut. It was quickly absorbed by our skin and left us feeling glowy and hydrated!

Emmy’s Coconut Vanilla Macaroon

(discount code included)
We love Emmy’s – these yummy macaroons are naturally vegan and gluten free. Sweetened with agave these have a great flavor and texture

Emmy’s has many different flavors from cacao to strawberry!

Go Raw Super Simple Sprouted Flax Snax

Because these are made with seeds these little chippies are an excellent source of fiber and protein. We’ve had Go Raw products before but not this particular kind. We are planning on using them for dipping in our mostarda!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. We have to say that The Well Necessities is a fierce contender when it comes to healthy snack boxes, we are amazed by the sheer volume included in this subscription. The presentation is great. We love the bag and that we receive a detailed insert with discount codes for things that we like! The quality is awesome! Each brand is included for its wholesome nourishment and vegan standards. The curation is amazing. We realize this is a quarterly subscription so it has more items than the average monthly box but we really feel like they’ve gotten together a great variety for subscribers to sample.
As far as box economy we couldn’t find most prices because of samples sizes. We feel that this subscription is worth WELL over $50 and think the price of $29,99 is super affordable! We love this subscription box!
