Back in March I posted about a new subscription snack service I had signed up for called NatureBox. I started with the free trial and received my first official delivery in mid-April, which I reviewed here. I’m now three boxes in and am still really happy with my decision to subscribe.
As I mentioned in a previous post, highlights of NatureBox products (according to the company) include:
- No high-fructose corn syrup (yay!)
- No hydrogenated oils
- No artificial anything, including colours, sweeteners and flavours
- No added sulfites
- Yes to high-quality, nutritious ingredients
- Yes to thoughtful sourcing
My NatureBoxes contain five full-sized snacks that I have pre-selected and added to my online ‘Pantry.’ You can add extra items at an additional cost. Every few weeks I go into my Pantry and re-arrange the items I want in my next shipment based on what I’m craving (salty, sweet, or something more breakfast-y). You can go in any time and select items from your pantry to include in your next order with an easy-to-use drag and drop tool.
The items in my most recent NatureBox were Lemon Tea Biscuits, Praline Pumpkin Seeds, Cashew Power Clusters, Asiago & Cheddar Cheese Crisps and Sticks ‘n Stones.
Lemon Tea Biscuits: More like heaven tea biscuits. Snort. These were amazing. Small but satisfying, they had an amazing shortbread taste with just the right amount of lemon flavouring. I had a dream where I married one and had no regrets. These are super tasty as a snack or with actual tea. They make a great wine cookie. That’s a thing, right?
Praline Pumpkin Seeds: These were fine. I wasn’t wowed but I didn’t hate them. I shared them with a co-worker under the guise of being nice but I just wanted someone else’s opinion. She liked them.
Cashew Power Clusters: These are the kind of snack that takes me a month to get through. Perfect for when you’re starving in your apartment and it’s like 11 at night and everything’s closed and you’ve eaten all the peanut butter straight from the jar and you just need something sweet and satisfying to get you through ’til breakfast.
Asiago & Cheddar Cheese Crisps: I loved these so much I ordered them again for my next box. Crispy and packed with cheese flavour, these are my favourite NatureBox snack so far. I’m smitten. They’re the new black. I’m thinking of dressing up as one for Halloween.
Sticks ‘N Stones: A hearty nut mix, these were deliciously salty (not overly so) and I would order them again. I ate them on the subway one night heading home from work and the woman sitting next to me looked like she wanted to steal them, so I take that as a ringing endorsement.
And now I eagerly await my June box…
Note: This post is not sponsored. I am paying for my NatureBox subscription out of my own pocket. Speaking of pockets, my pockets were – until I decided to try and make better snack choices – typically filled with high-sodium crackers, and I’ve been casually referring to pockets as CrackerPockets™ for years. Because that was the only thing I ever used my pockets for – a vehicle/storage centre for crackers. And then my friend told his niece that pockets were for crackers and now her mom probably hates me on laundry days. So really I’m doing this to save the pockets of small children from staining due to cheese dust (and also saving my denim jacket in the process). I’m practically a saint.
