Kona Kase Review

        Being healthy sometimes is just a way of life. You commit to doing it and then you find ways to carry out this plan so you feel better in the long run. Sometimes it can be hard in a sea of snack foods and sugary energy drinks to find something that works for you that is healthy and tastes good. That's why I love subscription boxes. I never get tired of being able to test something out and if I like it enough I will know what I love and I can find it to purchase later.
       Kona Kase is intended to be a box full of items you can use before, during and after training and races to discover what products give you the best results.
      It was started in May 2012 when creators John and Taylor were running the Relay (200 team relay from Calistoga, CA to Santa Cruz, CA) and found themselves tired of eating the same old boring energy bars, but finding similarly healthy alternatives wasn't easy.
      They wanted to create a platform where runners, cyclists, swimmers, and yoga/Cross-fit aficionados could sample different brands from around the country to find what works best for them. And so, Kona Kase was born.
       I received the July Kase and it had some great products I HAD heard about like Perky Jerky and ProBar Bolt (If you recall I did a review on ProBar). It also contained other items I hadn't heard of like the Health Warrior Chia Bar, and the Body Glove Surge among others.
       I had to fight Dexter for the Jerky, but I found most of these items to be absolutely awesome. The idea of a tasty energy chew, or that garukabar! Whole peanuts, dried cranberries and raw honey; does it get any better than that? The Enjoy Life Seed and Fruit mix is pretty spectacular with sunflower kernels, pineapple, pumpkin seeds, cranberries and apricots. Simple and yet full of vitamins and packed nicely in a easy to take along package.
        The idea that this particular box is only $15 a month is completely mind blowing if you are truly looking for something different and boring energy bars and sugary drinks aren't cutting it for you anymore. All kases ship free and you can cancel anytime making this the perfect chance to try something new. If that isn't good enough they are providing a coupon code to you for $5 off your first Kase! Just use the code "GIFTSUMMER"!!
