About two months ago I was reading a blog about KlutchClub. I thought it sounded pretty interesting and it hadn’t gone viral all over the blog world so when I was approached to try it out I was pretty interested. I know a lot of people don’t care for review posts but I got this product for free and I’m going to give you an honest LOLZ review (as I normally do).
KlutchClub is a similar idea in that every month they send you a whole slew of products from various companies. Being in the indecisive person I am, it’s great for me…it’s like playing the lottery or scratch cards but I never win. I received the package about 2 months ago, but since I have been traveling the last two months I needed extra time to review it and try everything. No, I don’t post reviews before I try every single part of the product that I’m physically able too.
Here is a photo that was on their website..I’m not a photographer or relatively good at any photography except for coffee a day or selfies so I thought this was better.
The box I got is called the “Energy Box” and had all of the following inside:
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts (2 oz.)
Wyman’s Blueberry Juice
Amino Vital Endurance Packet
Nature’s Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Cleansing Bar
Shakeology protein mix
Juil $50 Gift Card
Green Tea Hawaii 3 single servings green tea & 1 single serving coffee
Psssssst Dry Shampoo (
Acacia Strength Tone Lengthen Workout Sampler DVD
GNU – Bar
The first thing I noticed in the package (maybe because it was on top) was the Hemp hearts. A sample pack of raw shelled hemp seeds. To be honest, I had absolutely no idea what they were..I had heard of foodie hemp in passing but that’s it. They tasted pretty good and kept me full during the day at work. I put them in yogurt because I’m that creative. The package had 330 calories (25 grams fat, 5 grams fiber and 18 grams protein) so being diabetic this was a really optimal stat for me. Anyways, they were good, kept me full and boost great stats.
There were quite a few protein powders in here (which I like after long runs…and that is it…no protein shakes randomly in the day…or for breakfast…gross). So I waited a few long runs to test each. The shakelogy is 150 calorie (18 grams of protein powder) which I had after a 15 miler. It tasted as good as protein does. It did it’s job for my muscles. (There were 3 packages in there).
There were also 2 packages of endurance Amino vital-An amino acid supplement. I had never tried anything specialty like this. I had one of those packages with each of the shakeology (like a little team). I didn’t notice any special differences in muscle recovery but I do know they tasted amazing. (I really like orange and chocolate though…the chocolate was the protein powder and the orange was the flavor of the amino drink).
Also in the box was a flavor and fiber bar. I know you guys have heard of these and they are good and have a lot of fiber. I had it on the airplane. I like the texture a lot…so chewy. Not much to say about that, I like bars on the go which is when I’m traveling. Now that I’m not in class anymore, I don’t need to worry about eating a big crunch apple in a lecture hall. I used to eat bars more in lecture halls because they were quiet.
One product I was not able to try was the blueberry juice. Juice has always made me very sick (diabetes). I gave it to my 16 year old brother and he liked it a lot. He said it tasted like blueberries…go figure.
I gave the green tea to my housemate only because I don’t care for tea. I had the bonus instant coffee and it tasted like normal coffee to me. (if you follow me on instagram I dedicated today’s #coffeeaday to it).
Dry shampoo: Ladies love dry shampoo. I wash my hair every other day and I used this the other days (in place of my other dry shampoo). “PSSSSSST!” is the ORIGNAL dry shampoo. I guess that makes it better…which actually I found it to be a bit better so I ended up buying some in place of my treseme.
The next two products were by Natures Gate and body wash as well as cleansing gel. I really enjoyed the lemon gel because I enjoy the smell of lemon. The papaya didn’t brighten my skin as stated but then again you probably have to use it for a while.
Finally the mud mask. I have never gotten a mud mask but there is a first time for everything I guess. This was an interesting experience…I watched plenty of mud mask you tube videos beforehand. What was my verdict? My skin felt the same after the mud mask then before…just clean.
They also gave a 50 dollars off Juil Soles but let’s be honest I live in upstate NY and sandles are needed for about 1 month out of 12.
Anyways-what a wordy post.
Here are the cliffnotes:
My favorite product was actually the Foodie Hemp Seeds. They had great nutritional stats that kept me full (very full at first) throughout the afternoon at work. I didn’t vomit from them which is a plus.
My least favorite (that I tried) was either the papaya body wash (my skin is still dull) or the amino acids (my muscles recovered at the same speed with/without.)
Would I recommend Klutch?
Actually yes I would. I’m one for playing the lottery though and the thrill of not knowing what you are getting excites me. I had an overall good experience with my contents in the box.
Question for you:
- Have you ever tried a Russian roulette grab bag coming to your door?
- 2. Do any of these products look interesting to you?
