June 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 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 or email 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:

(3.5) 6 piece servings Yogurt Dipped Pretzels. - These are really good. They taste like they have some lemon in them although no citrus is listed in the ingredients.

(3) servings Fancy Dried Figs. - I love me some figs but these seem a little dry to me.

(5) Whole Wheat Figgy Bars.  

(5) 1/4c Far East Rice Crackers. - These are always a favorite around my house.  

(5) 1/3c BBQ Kettle Kernels. - What I liked about these is they didn't have the strong smell like corn nuts usually do. They also weren't hard on your teeth. They had a nice light crunch. I think they could have used more flavoring though. 

Bonus Snack

(4.5) 9 piece Italian Bistro Pretzels.  

I don't know why I'm getting a bonus bag. Does anyone else get a bonus bag in their box? I won't attempt 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. The yogurt dipped pretzels are yummy! I'm going to skip next month because somehow we are on snack overload!
Verdict: Great variety of items and great healthy snacks and I'm thrilled with the customizing option.

  1. So lucky for the extra bag, I actually cancelled my subscription because of the customer service. They kept messing up my order :(
