I’ve tried quite a few subscription boxes over the years. All of them fun and exciting to unbox. However, for the most part, I found that a lot of the pretty things I received sat in a drawer forever and I ultimately had no use for. One by one, I would try and eventually cancel them. I loved the excitement, anticipation and unveiling of each box but not the waste.
Then COVID hit. I’ve been stuck isolating at home for over 100 days now. Totally isolating. This means, no grocery stores, and no browsing for new snacks, which, to be honest, is a favourite hobby of mine.
Then I stumbled upon an Instagram story featuring the subscription box of my dreams – A snack box. Not just a snack box – A healthy, balanced one.
Two months in and I’m already blown away. It was love at first unboxing.
First off, it’s a local company for me, which I’ve prioritized supporting in this current climate. It also seems to be run by some pretty awesome people – Customer support is beyond friendly and helpful. Major pluses.
The box itself is so well curated. It features an amazing balance of both sweet and savoury snacks with ingredients I can feel good about.
Having lived with Ulcerative Colitis for a decade now, I’ve constantly been seeking out new snacks (I’m a major snacker) that are healthy and easy on my gut.
I receive the “Classic Box”, however there are various other options that cover different kinds of diets, which I think is very well thought out.
Over the last two months, I’ve been introduced to snacks I wouldn’t even think existed or know to look for! It’s been a fun food journey. I try not to view spoilers for each month before I receive the box as it’s extra fun to open not knowing what can of surprises you’ll get! It’s a little slice of joy in these hard times.
Now, for the value – It’s major! I’ll admit, every time I try to calculate it I give up – All I know, is it’s always WELL over the cost of the box.
Now to unbox! These were the items I received in the Original June box:
1. GoGo Quinoa Puffs
Like most products in the box, this is a full-sized bag! These were interesting. A nice light snack with a refreshing taste.
2. Koochikoo Sugar Free Organic Lollipops
There are 10 lollipops in this package and to say I’m obsessed with them would be an understatement!
3. Zak Organics Crunchy Peas
I didn’t know that eating peas this way was even a thing but now that I do, there’s no going back – These will be a snack staple in my life!
4. Lilo Clusters
Like an oreo but one I feel better about after eating!
5. Healthy Crunch Granola Bar
An allergen-friendly granola friendly granola bar that contains probiotics AND fruits and veggies!
6. Bobo’s Oat Bar
These have actually been a snack favourite of mine for a while now so I was excited to find one in the box! They are super filling and equally tasty.
7. Snack Bomb Energy Balls
These are the perfect mid-day snack!
8. Daydream Water
This sparkling water infused with hemp extracts and adaptogens, for me, was the absolute highlight of this box. I had been longing to try it for a while but hesitant because of the price tag. Well, let me tell you, I have since bought two cases of it because this. stuff. WORKS.
9. Riceworks Gourmet Rice Snacks
I actually ate these with homemade salsa and they were way tastier than tortilla chips.
10. Remix Bean Bark
This is an example of something I would never gravitate towards buying – Yet, loved, and felt good about eating!
11. Duke’s Smoked Shorty Sausages
A long time favourite of mine and one of my go-to savoury snacks on the go! Needless to say, I was super excited to find them in the box.
And there you have it! 11 items. Most of which, full-size. An awesome combination of sweet and savoury to suit your various snack cravings and enough snacks to keep you smiling for a month. Not to mention, a saved trip to the grocery store when we’re all a little weary of going out! And, a fun, monthly surprise!
I’m so glad to have found this box, it’s been a wonderful snack journey, and the first subscription box I truly use 100% of.
