Monthly subscription boxes are everywhere lately. Birchbox, Lost Crates, Love Club…I just did a Google search of “subscription boxes” and the number of options left me sort of overwhelmed. Generally, I think these boxes are really neat, but not worth $20-30 a month for things I’m not sure I’ll like.
So when NatureBox emailed me a couple months ago to ask if I’d be interested in trying out one of their boxes of snacks, I didn’t say no. Who says no to free snacks?
NatureBox is a subscription service that sends 4 to 6 different snacks to your door each month. The snacks are 15 to 20 servings in all…if you can manage to close the bags after only a 1/4 cup serving. NatureBox promises no high fructose corn syrup, trans-fats, partially hydrogenated oils or artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors. Every snack has nutrition facts on the back.
The contents of the box changes each month. July’s contained Zesta Fiesta Mix, Garden Tomato Crunchies, Sunny Trails Snack Mix, Lemon Pucker Pistachios and Southern BBQ Sunflower Kernels. I really liked the variety of snacks that were in the box and that each bag had such unique flavors. I never would have thought of lemon pistachios, but they were delicious. 4 of the 5 snacks had nuts, but I love nuts and the different flavors made it seem like totally different foods.
Opening each of the bags and enjoying new snacks this month has been really fun. I’ve tried to stick to the suggested servings and make the bags last as long as possible. Now that I’d tried it, $19.95 actually seems reasonable for these snacks; dried fruit and nuts are pretty expensive at the supermarket. I had mixed feelings about the amount of packaging, but a quick email to NatureBox let me know that the bags are made of recyclable rice paper so everything in the NatureBox is recyclable. Impressive.
