Nature Box August 2016

Nature Box sets forward to make snacking part of a well balanced lifestyle. None of the snacks contain artificial ingredients, high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils. There are a few different membership options. When you first sign up you can select to receive a box every week, every 2 weeks or once a month. You can also decide whether you want to receive 5 or 10 snacks in each box. The cost is $19.99 for 5 snacks and $34.95 for 10 snacks. Shipping is free for in the US and only $4.95 to Canada. Keep reading to the end to find out how you can try your first box for FREE.

When I first saw the box my expectations weren’t super high. I think I just expected a bit of a bigger box for these items, but after I opened it I was pleasantly surprised with the size of each of the bags. Once you sign up for your first box you are prompted to decide if you want to choose your snacks or have it be a surprise. After picking your 5 (or 10) you can keep adding snacks to your pantry. Any future box you get will only consist of items that are in your pantry, but the combination that you get each month will be different. This is great if you are a bit particular with your snacks or if you have any dietary restrictions.

Since I had picked them out myself I knew what was in the box, but I was still excited to dig through and check them out even more. And of course to try them! Everything was in a branded bag and I was VERY happy to not see any of the annoying crinkle paper used for padding.

The Goods

Nature Box August

Sourdough Cheddar Pretzels–These pretzels are made with real cheddar and buttermilk. They have less than 150 calories per serving, and less than 10g of sugar.

Nature Box August

Double Berry Fruit Peels–These are raspberry and blueberry fruit peels. Same idea as the Fruit To Go strips. They are made with real fruit puree and juices. They are vegan, non-gmo, less than 150 calories per serving and are low in fat and sodium. There were 10 individually wrapped strips in the package, perfect for a quick snack. It was easy to resist overeating since I didn’t have an open package sitting in front of me.

Nature Box August

Salt & Vinegar Veggie Chips–These are made with yucca, purple sweet potato, yellow sweet potato and plantains. They are all handpicked from a Central American rainforest, artisanally cut and then crisped. Salt & vinegar are one of my favorite chip flavors, second only to Ketchup chips. I know chips aren’t healthy so it’s nice to have a healthier option. These are vegan and have no added sugar. My only complaint is that the bag was quite scrunched when I got it and the chips were pretty broken.

Nature Box August

Santa Fe Corn Stix–These corn sticks are vegan with less than 150 calories per serving and less than 10g of sugar. They are made with yellow masa corn and a zesty salsa seasoning that’s a blend of tomato, onion and green pepper.

Nature Box August

Honey BBQ Crunch–This mix has less than 15g carbs, 10g of sugar and is filled with fiber. It contains honey roasted peanuts, cashews, pretzels and some BBQ seasoning.

Final Thoughts

I had been hearing about Nature Box for a couple of years now and I have no idea why it took me so long to try it. I’m happy with the snacks and the portion sizes. I have about 25 options currently sitting in my pantry, and it seems like they do regularly add new options to their selection. Not only do I have full control over WHAT I get, I also have full control over WHEN I get it. It’s very easy to go under your account and change the frequency of your orders, whether you want it more or less often. You can also pause and cancel your membership from there as well. Another great bonus? If you don’t like a snack they will replace it free in your next box! This isn’t going to be a super regular box that I get since I’m hoping the snacks will last me for a bit, but I like having the option to get one whenever I want. 

If you want to give Nature Box a try you can follow this link. This will get you a box absolutely FREE, all you have to do is pay the shipping. That’s how I ordered this box and it only cost me $5USD for all these snacks!
