Bespoke Post Review - January 2017 "Boost" - Men's Lifestyle Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

Canadian Box Addict pays for this subscription. This post contains affiliate links.
  
What is it? Bespoke Post Box of Awesome 
How Much? $45 per month + tax, plus $10 shipping to Canada (US dollars) 
What's in it? Fresh & interesting lifestyle brands for men built around a central, unique theme   

Bespoke Post is a lifestyle subscription box for men. Each month, Bespoke Post sends a new "Box of Awesome" - a box filled with a limited edition collection of products built around a specific theme. To complement the box, Bespoke posts how-to-videos, tips & tricks, and interviews with the makers. Their goal is to introduce men to something new. Many of the boxes could appeal to women as well, which is why I subscribe. You can also skip as many months as you wish, so I've been subscribed for a couple years, but only get the box a few times a year.

Over the years, Bespoke Post has worked to lower the Canadian shipping charge. Originally I was paying $20 a box for shipping to BC. Last year they managed to get the cost down to $10 per box (or for shop orders $45 and up) Canada wide. They also cover the brokerage fees and duties, so there are no additional fees due upon delivery.

My last box was in July 2016!


There were quite a few options available for January. This doesn't even show them all! I opted for Boost because I need a new blender and I like the bullet-style design of this one!

First look!

All about Boost: 

Drink up to make good on your New Year’s resolutions.

Even the loftiest goals suddenly seem a lot more doable when you’ve got the right tools, like this high-powered blender setup, close at hand. Fully equipped to aid with any health-centric objectives, it’ll bulk up your workout, increase your intake of greens, or simply enhance your mornings with a fresh, daily smoothie, saving you time and energy in the process. Here’s to cleaning up your act in the year to come.

From the Editors at Bespoke Post, we also received an article titled "How to Become a Morning Person". The article is available online as well, if you are interested.

WMF Bistro Long Spoon ($3.50)
Sometimes your smoothie separates before you’re done drinking it. Other times, you need to free a stubborn drop of shake from the bottom of your glass. In any case, occasionally an extra-long utensil will certainly come in handy. And this is just the thing, crafted from polished, dishwasher-safe 18/10 stainless steel with an extended handle and a balanced weight to help you get the most out of your glass. I've wanted one of these for a while but it's nothing something one rushes out to buy. It's handy for smoothies, milkshakes, and cocktails!

MyProtein Impact Whey Protein (3 x 25g pouches, $2)
Speed up lean muscle growth and cut short recovery time by sipping a shake blended with some of this. Coming at you in three different flavors – natural vanilla, strawberry cream, and chocolate brownie, to be exact – each single-serve packet is formulated with 96% pure whey concentrate, a high-protein supplement that’s low-carb and low-fat to boot. Before or after your workout, mix some up with water, milk, or whatever else suits your palate, and you’ll have a rich, healthy drink you’ll actually look forward to imbibing. I have yet to find a protein powder that doesn't taste chalky and gritty, so I'm curious to try this brand.

WMF Mix & Go Nutrient Extraction Blender ($65) 
Fuel more effectively with this amped-up appliance. Packing 250 watts of power, its four-winged stainless steel blade spins at 22,000 RPM, allowing you to liquefy anything you want – be that a hearty protein shake, a blend of fruits and vegetables, or even a batch of boozy milkshakes – without a care in the world.

To keep counters uncluttered in even the smallest city apartments, the base is designed with a sleek, streamlined silhouette and built from brushed 18/10 stainless steel. As for use, it couldn’t be more intuitive: just fill up the poly carbonate container (which is BPA-free and safe for the dishwasher, by the way) with whatever you’re looking to chug, attach the removable blade unit, stick it on the base, and press a single button to get down to business. Then, once you’re satisfied with the consistency, screw on the included sippable lid, and you’ll be all set to head to the office, gym, or wherever else, blended beverage in hand. 


I used to own a Magic Bullet blender and this one is very similar, but has way more power. I like the design of the cup better as well. We also received a screw cap with a flip top for easy sipping.

I tried the new blender out using a banana, frozen mango & blueberries, almond milk, and ice. 

The  Mix & Go did a better job at blending than my fancy Kitchenaid blender. The ice and frozen fruit was completely pulverized. I am super impressed!

The January Bespoke Box included a personal blender, whey protein samples, and a bistro spoon. The retail value is over $70 US! This box costs $60.40 US, including taxes and shipping to Canada. The blender is fantastic and does a great job pulverizing frozen fruits and other vegetables. I'm pleased as punch with this "box of awesome"!
