August Urth Box

The Urth box tagline is "Discover a Healthier You". Well who doesn't want to do that? I recently found a deal on on Gilt for a 6 month subscription for $69. I thought for $12 a month, heck why not. Each month Urth box sends a box of healthy full size snacks for you to try. They have different types and sizes of boxes the choose from. You can choose a gluten free, diet, classic or vegan box. From that point you choose which size box you want. They have a small box (7-10 items) for $29 a month, medium box (12-15 items) for $39 a month, large box (20-24 items) for $59 a month. Shipping to US is included. If you choose a 3 or 6 month plan you can save up to $10 a month. So as you can see I got a really great deal on the small box plan.

Price: $19-$59 a month depending on size of box and plan. 

This box is available to US and Canada but extra shipping fees apple to Canada. 

The Good:

Variety: They have a variety of boxes to choose from depending on your dietary needs.

Products: They send full size products which is awesome!

The Not So Good:

Price: The price is a little high for a monthly box.

Skip: It doesn't appear there any way to skip.

August Urth Box

Contents of the Urth Box:

1.25 oz. 180 Nutty Rice Bites. Value = $1.49

1.1 oz. Popcorners White Cheddar. Value = $0.79

Bai Antioxidant Infusions in Tanzania Lemonade Tea. Value = $2.27 - This was ok, nothing spectacular. 

2 oz. Emmy's Dark Cacao Macaroons. Value = $3.29 - you know I love some dark chocolate. 

.05 oz. Weleda Skin Food. Value = $0.42

2 oz. EBoost Energy Shot. Value = $3.25

Powbab Taste Pomegranate Acai Berry 6 Chews. Value = $4.66

Wild Garden Hummus. Value = $2.19

The total value of this box is $18.36. This was about the same value as last month. For me this was a great deal because of the deal I was able to score on Gilt. If you are paying full price ($29) for this box then it's a terrible deal. Like last month I did like the contents of the box. I really liked the dark chocolate macaroons. The weren't too sweet but just enough to fix the chocolate craving. The nutty rice bites look tasty and since the boyfriend doesn't like nuts I'll get to try this one out. 

Verdict: The value is disappointing but the products were good. I have 4 more months of these so we will see if the value increases.

  1. This company has the worst customer service ever.

    I just moved and I changed my address on the website the only place you can change it. I get the tracking info for my August boxes, I'm subscribed to three boxes, and I check to see where my boxes are. Tracking info says they've been delivered, they shipped them to the old address though.

    Obviously I'm pretty disappointed so I email them letting them know what happened. They respond saying that I should have emailed them to change my shipping address and that if I want my August boxes I will have to pay $6 more per box for them to be shipped to the correct address, the address that I had already changed on their website which says NOTHING anywhere as far as having to email them to change your shipping location.

    I let them know that I thought it was pretty messed up how they were handling this situation considering it was their error and their website issues that caused it to happen. To which they let me know that they would be adding a note to their website to email them if you need to change your shipping address. Yet are still requiring that I pay them another $18 on top of the already $70+ that I paid for my August boxes.

    Now they've stopped responding to me and are censoring me from their Facebook page.

    This is a terrible company with terrible standards, they will not last long.

    1. that is awful! They should totally send you those boxes at their expense. How are you suppose to know their website doesn't work right?
