Vitacost Be Box Be Fit -- 1 Box
1st month great, 2nd month just awful!
I was very pleased with the quality of first march's be fit box even though I don't anticipate using some of the items. April's was straight up lazy- some omega vitamins that are close to expiration, an energy chew sample, an atkins bar sample, a protein powder sample and another bite of something. not worth $14 including shipping at all. very disapointed. Will be cancelling my subscribe and save.

I was looking forward to this package and the great samples/products it promised for $70 worth. I just received the April box today and I am very disappointed. Two full size products, and about 5 samples. The samples are the ones you were able to get for free with a $49 order....and the two full size products don't even come close to $20 . I won't be ordering again. Did the whole package worth the $ 13.99? Probably. But not more than that.

Not Really "Fit"...
This was my first "BE ___" grab-bag box that I've ever purchased from Vitacost. I was really excited to order this after reading all these reviews, but I was actually highly disappointed with my box. I received mostly whey protein powders, energy supplements, and snacks... which I feel like match the description for the "BE STRONG" box more than the "BE FIT." The protein samples say that they're for building "maximum muscle" and energy powders and chews say "1 hour of performance energy"... which all seem to suggest use for muscle bulking anaerobic exercise and are not too female friendly. The snacks were also really high in fat (46% DV of saturated fat in one serving!). There was also a "cardio" salmon oil omega 3 supplement, but the description says that it's aimed at targeting cardiovascular heart health and nutrition, which would be more appropriate for the "BE WELL" box. In any case, I thought that a "BE FIT" box would maybe contain green tea supplements or other metabolism boosters and low-calorie snacks or drinks... stuff that would actually help me stay "fit." The items I received were just not what I expected. I guess I'll try a different box next month :/

These boxes are good value for the money... but it looks like VC is phasing out its 'pick two samples' bonus and putting the manufacture's promotional samples and/or soon to expires into these boxes.
I really liked the 'pick two' it was kinda like Vitacost's kiss on the cheek every time I placed an order. Now I feel like I have to buy them dessert for that kiss on the cheek :(...

First time was a Charm...Second..Not so much
First time i received this box it was choked full of all kind of things..Felt it was well worth the claimed 70 dollars..So i ordered another the very next month and received a total of 5 different things and none of which i will ever use..Almost felt like they had forgot to put things in..Won't be ordering again..
