KLUTCHclub is really different than any other subscription service I've tried. It isn't one I would normally purchase, but worth trying. For $18 a month they send a box that's geared toward health and wellness. I like to keep track of what I eat, but I'm by no means that interested in exercise. In fact, I hate it. I'll do cardio and pilates here and there, but...yeah, I just don't go to the gym. That was the main reason why I hadn't signed up to try this service before, but with the 50% off I was willing to give it a try.
I really, really like their packaging. It's a nice departure from the standard box that most subscriptions come in--this one is more of a long rectangle (rectangular prism, if you must), and it opens on one end. The flaps say "Get Ready" and "Your KLUTCH has arrived!," which I thought was a fun touch.
I think that this box was definitely worth $9, but since I'm not a fitness person I'm not sure I would want to pay $18 for it. But that is really just because fitness is not one of my hobbies; I think that those who were more into the health and wellness lifestyle would love this box. Here is what I got for July:
- Mighty Leaf Teas - I've gotten lots of Mighty Leaf teas in other subscriptions, but I'm glad I'm a tea drinker because they're one of my favorite brands. The flavors I got were Chamomile Citrus, Green Tea Tropical, and Organic Earl Grey.
- Molecule R - This is an informational packet about molecular gastronomy, and it came with a packet of natural emulsifier to turn liquids into foam. I've heard of molecular gastronomy on Top Chef, but I don't really know what to do with this. I'm going to read the packet to learn more.
- 1st Step Pro-Wellness/High Performance Fitness - This is a natural liquid Vitamin B-12 supplement. It's pretty much an energy shot to me. I haven't used it yet, but I will sometime this week since I'm going into work at 630am.
- Truvia Natural Sweetener - I've tried Truvia before and I'm not a fan. I have another package and I'm going to take these to work and leave them near the coffee for people to use.
- Nia - This is probably the most valuable item in the box, it's a certificate for a special Nia class. I've never heard of Nia before, but apparently it's a workout that combines martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts. It sounds super interesting and I'm excited to try it out!
- Zoye Vegetable Oil - I don't cook, so this is probably my least-favorite item in the box. It'll get put to use eventually.
- Mineral Hygienics - This is the second time I've gotten a $15 coupon for Mineral Hygienics. I never used my first one, so I'm not going to let this expire. Too bad it doesn't cover shipping, though.
- Goulibeur Cookies - To prove how much of a non-fitness nut I am, this was my favorite item! These shortbread cookies were so delicious, and I immediately devoured them upon opening the box. I just wish they had the nutritional information listed on the package.
- Cascal Fermented Soda - I drank this with my lunch today and it was so good! The flavor I got was Fresh Tropical (I think everyone got the same flavor), and I really enjoyed it. Even though it's fermented, it doesn't have alcohol in it. It was 80 calories for the can, but worth it as a treat once in a while.
Bottom Line: KLUTCHclub definitely earns its worth with the certificates for classes that they include each month. I think this was a good box as far as variety of items, though I would have preferred to receive a physical beauty item instead of a certificate where I have to pay shipping. All in all, I would recommend it to anyone who likes health and wellness services.
