April 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.  I ended up canceling my membership and resubscribing so I could customize my box.

This subscription is available to all US states and ships from San Carlos, California

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!

Customize: You can now customize your box.
The not so good:

 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 personalized Nature Box Treasures. 


Contents of my Nature Box:

(2) 10 ring servings Granny Smith Dried Apples

(5) 1/2c servings Guacamole Bites. - These taste good at first but they are a little dry with a weird aftertaste. I wonder if they would be good in taco salad?

5 Whole Wheat Figgy Bars. - I wanted the dry figs but they ran out so I got these instead.

(4) 1/4c servings Far East Rice Crackers - These are always popular at my house.

(4) 1oz. servings Dark Cocoa Almonds - These are so good, I had to order them again.

Bonus Snack

(3.5) 1/4c servings of Nature's Bounty Trail Mix.

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. I'm not sure why I received a bonus product but I'll take it! I am really curious about the guacamole bites - can they possible taste like guacamole?

Verdict: Great variety of items and great healthy snacks and I'm thrilled with the customizing option.
