January Nature Box

Nature Box is a food related monthly subscription that sends 15-20 servings of delicious snacks from 4-6 different items.  Their products contain no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, no trans fat, no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.  The cost for this subscription is $19.95 shipping included.  In addition for every Nature Box sent out they donate a meal through Feeding America.  This month the theme of the box is "A Commitment To You" 

The good:

Good for you: You get snacks for you and your family that are good for you. 

Variety: There is something for everyone, fruit, nuts, rice crackers.

Skip a month: Yes you can skip a month or have your box sent to a friend.  The not so good is you have to call in order to do this.  There is no online option for this feature but they are working on it.  

Need a gift: You can send a 3, 6 or 12 month gift subscription.  Perfect for college students, frequent travelers, moms, singles, really anyone!

The not so good:

Customize: The boxes aren't customizable...yet. The company is working on a feature where you can choose which snacks you want in your box.  This will be cool.    

Want more: Love you snack and want to order more?  Currently they don't have an option to purchase more but they are working on making that a possibility. 


My Nature Box Treasures. 

Contents of my Nature Box:

(4) 8 piece serving Cranberry Almond Bites.

(2 1/2) 1/3 cup servings Orange Crush Granola.

(5 1/2) 1/4 cup servings of Wild Berry Bunch dried berries. 

(3 1/2) 1/4 cup servings of Chocolate Ginger Bliss

(4) 1 oz. servings of Lone Star Snack Mix.

Recipe for Berries & Cream Oatmeal from MOMables - uses the wild berry bunch and orange crush granola

Its hard to determine a value of the products because there is so much variation in this type of food.  I looked at a couple of organic dried fruit items online and they were about $4.50 a bag.  I know when I've purchased nuts before in a package or bulk it's about $3-$5 depending on the brand, etc.  What I received this month works out to be $4.00 a bag and I think that's pretty average for these type of snacks. I like that that send a variety of items because I enjoy the mixed nuts items but the boyfriend is more of a dried fruit kind guy.

Verdict: Great variety of items and great healthy snacks.   

I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Nature Box.  I purchases these boxes myself.
