I read few blogs religiously, and browse hundreds of different blogs through my surfing of the web and Pinterest. Garrett has even asked me what happens when you finish reading the Internet, ha ha ha Garrett.
But a few days ago I came across a blog review of NatureBox. Ever heard of it? I’m sure you have heard of “cheese of the month” clubs or “wine of the month” clubs but what about a “healthy snack food of the month club?” Well that is exactly what NatureBox is.
For $20 a month you can get 4-5 different snacks (12 to 15 servings) shipped directly to your house. According to their website the food they ship is wholesome and minimally processed.
After perusing through the website and checking out the past boxes, I signed up for a six month subscription. Who wouldn’t love to get 4-5 surprise snacks in the mail once a month? Worry-free healthy snacks delivered to my door, can it get any easier? They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee so if I don’t like the first couple boxes I can cancel the remaining months.
I love to try new things so why not? If you are interested in trying these out, the lovely folks over at NatureBox are offering you a discount! The cost of a membership is just $19.95/month, but use the promo code HEALTHY and get 6 months and receive 1 month free (or a 12- month subscription gets 3 months free).
Oh and kudos to Nature Box, they donate one meal for every NatureBox sent out to feed the over 14 million children in America who go hungry.
I also found GoBites.com which is very similar to NatureBox. The biggest difference is that you get 14 individual boxed servings per month and you get to choose which off their menu you would prefer. The food is advertised on the website as 100% natural and almost all organic foods.
The menu looks awesome by the way. And you can get a one-month, four-serving trial for free (plus $4 shipping) so I signed up for that too — why not? If this one is good maybe I’ll do both or cancel the other one and go with this one. We will just have to wait and see but I am looking forward to “testing” out all sorts of new foods.
Follow-up (4/1/2012) : My gobites.com package arrived yesterday and I proceeded to open each one and try them all.The photo below show what the sample package looks like. 4 individual snack packs of their choice. If I decide to order more I get to choose which ones I receive.
This was Tropical Fruit Granola (above photo). I liked it. It was a little sweet for me but I love granola. 100% organic gluten-free granola made with cashews, coconut, mango and bananas
This was Antioxidant Mix (above photo). 100% organic pineapple, raw cashews, pomegranate and goji berries
This was Incan Treasure and probably my second favorite of the bunch. 100% organic lightly dry roasted almonds, mango, dark chocolate covered cacao nibs and golden raisins.
And I think Garrett would agree this was both of our favorites. Forbidden Rice Mix with organic fiery cashews and black rice sesame rounds. All in all we liked them. I am going to hold off until our first NatureBox comes and then compare which we like the most.
