The last few days for me have been spent opening packages, spending time with family, playing games, and watching A Christmas Story about 7 times. When the Hubbo and I got home from traveling to see my parents and his parents, I was excited to see a bright orange package waiting on me. It was my December Bestowed Box. Because really, can you open too many boxes with surprises in them in one day? Nope!
This month, I teamed up with Bestowed to do a product review. Bestowed is a monthly box subscription service focused on bringing healthy food, snacks, and beverages right to your door. You all know how much I love my other box subscriptions (Stridebox and Birchbox) so this was an easy choice for me to do a product review, plus there's a gift for you too. But seriously, who doesn't like to get mail that is actually fun? Every time a box comes to your door it's a fun surprise to see what is in it. All these items are focused on being healthy and yummy so I don't feel so guilty about it.
You can also send a box as a gift if you had that awkward situation of someone buying you a Christmas gift and you didn't have one for them in return. Oops! That's weird! I just fixed that problem for you. You're welcome!

The I Heart Keenwah Ginger Peanut snacks were my second favorite item in the box. They are small squares so they are perfect for snacking, they have a nice crunch to them which I like, and the flavor is actually pretty light. I was afraid the Ginger would be super strong, but it's actually not bad at all. In fact, you notice the ginger more as an after taste which is kind of nice and refreshing because it is not overpowering.
The I Heart Keenwah snacks are gluten free and 130 calories per serving. You can find the snacks at Iheartkeenwah.com.
Not gonna lie, The Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce made me super nervous when I opened the box.
1. I don't cook.
2. I don't like spicy food and the label says HOT!
3. I'm a picky eater.
4. I don't cook.
But I decided to be extra brave for you all, my blog buddies, and actually made a dish to give this a whirl. Surprisingly, it turned out not bad! The Hubbo liked it so that made me feel even better about my experiment. If you like a little heat to your meal, you would probably like this. I'm not a huge fan of spicy dishes and my eyes watered a little and my nose got a little runny because I'm a spicy food weenie!
Also I used the organic Simply Stock Chicken broth to make the rice for my experimental dish and it was really good on its own. I wish I had set aside some plain rice because it was so good!
You can find the Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce at Cost Plus and Whole Foods.
