Healthy Snacks At Your Doorstep

by Courtney on March 25, 2012

So, have you guys heard about NatureBox? Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had never heard of it either, but I’m so glad that I did. And now, I want to share it with you!

NatureBox is a subscription service that offers the ability to test out different, healthy snacks on a monthly basis. Their products are made from wholesome ingredients, with strict quality standards: No High Fructose Corn Syrup, No Partially Hydrogenated Oils, No Trans Fats, and No Artificial Sweeteners, Flavors, or Colors.

I think one of the other things that immediately caught my attention, before even checking into the snacks, was the fact that NatureBox believes is helping those in need. For every box sent out, NatureBox donates one meal to feed the over 14 million children in America who go hungry. Isn’t that great?

So each month, there is a new box full of goodies sent out, and I was asked if I would like to try out the snacks from this month’s March box.

My box was filled with five different types of snacks- three sweet and two savory.

And each snack also included full nutrition facts.

The three sweet options included their Nuts for Granola, Dried Cherries, and Figgy Bars with Honey. The granola is just subtly sweet but has an incredible flavor. I haven’t tried out the Figgy Bars yet, but you can bet they’ll be opened soon enough. And as for the cherries, don’t be surprised if you see them make an appearance this week in some oatmeal. Winking smile

The two savory snacks in the box included their Firecrackers and Sunshine Chips. I haven’t tried the Firecrackers yet, just because the name frightens me just slightly. Spicy + me = no good, but I’d be willing to bet that Jay will love these.

The Sunshine Chips, on the other hand. Ohhh myyyy…

Do you guys remember the last time I had these in my possession? Yeah, they’re fantastic.

In addition to the snacks themselves, the box also came packed with an information sheet, filled with facts about each of the snacks, ways to incorporate them into snacks/meals, and even a recipe which I may end up trying out soon!

Right now, NatureBox is offering a special coupon for anyone who may be interested in signing up for a subscription.

The promo code “HEALTHY” may be used for 25% off your first month of subscription.* Just enter it in the promo code box at checkout, which you can find here.

(*The 25% discount is only applicable to the month-to-month subscription. 6 month subscriptions receive 1 month free and 12 month subscriptions receive 3 months free.)

They’re also working on coming up with some new NatureBoxes which will address various dietary needs and personal preferences, which I think would be really cool. Then again, anytime there’s snacks on my doorstep, let alone healthy ones, that’s already pretty darn cool. Smile

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post, but I was sent a March snack box free of charge to try out, with no obligation to share. All statements and opinions are from Yours Truly!

What a great service! Sometimes when snacks are labeled as healthy, they are still super processed and have a laundry list of ingredients. Those snacks look and sound incredible! I also really appreciate that they donate to hungry children in America. Worldly causes are great but we can’t forget those all around us that are in need. Thanks for sharing this!

Are each of the pouches a single serving?

No, they’re larger than that. The figgy bars bag had 3, so that portion was smaller. I’d say each bag is probably 2-4 servings.

Wow! Those look so yummy!
You can always mail me those Firecrackers ones if they’re too spicy (I loooove me some HEAT!), hehe.
It’s always fun to get something in the mail… especially if they have fig bars in them :D

Yummm! I wonder if having the snacks picked out for me with the knowledge of another box being sent in a month would reign in on my buying things I don’t need. What an idea!!!

This looks great! Wish it was available in UK!

I used to get something similar called a “Graze Box” but then the started putting cakes & brownies in – not what I signed up for at all.

Courtney, do you know if I can order just one box at a time or do I need to choose a 6- or 12-month subscription? I’m just not sure…thanks! : )

Thanks for reviewing this product. I just ordered a box to give it a try. I have a very busy schedule with some weird hours so having healthy snacks delivered right to my house will be great.
