UrthBox January 2016

Urthbox is a healthy snack subscription that sends out all sorts of goodies that are better for you then regular snacks.  They offer four different boxes, vegan, diet, classic or gluten-free.  They also offer four sizes of box, mini, small, medium, and large, which range from 6 to 24 items per box.  I picked this one up on a Groupon so I got six months of the mini for $32.00.  Boxes normally run from $12.99-$39.99 a month. If you really like people you can also get an office box that has 100 snacks and will set you back $199 a month. Let’s see what’s inside this month.

The box this month was pretty light but opening it up showed that it was packed right to the brim.  The card is standard for this box, just the type and month.

Snack Out Loud Power Puffs Salt & Vinegar-14g $0.64

These are like a cheesy poof (yes silly South Park reference, I know), but they are salt and vinegar flavoured.  They also have high levels of protein and fibre while being gluten, nut, corn, and GMO free.  I’m always looking for a new snack and these have a low calorie count so that makes them a good option for me.

Paddington Bear Orange Marmalade Flavoured Banana Chips-23g $0.80

Well we just discovered the other day that the kids love banana chips so these shall become a treat for them.  Marmalade is regularly eaten here as well so that added flavour will be fine as well.  These chips are vegan, trans and sulphite free, and contain no preservatives.  The Paddington Bear part is not a selling feature as my girls don’t know who he is but I think it’s cute.

Qancha Corn Snack-28g $2.50

These snacks are similar to a Corn Nut but made from an heirloom type corn grown in the Andes.  They are air toasted and then given a light coating of oil and salted.  I have had a different product that is like these and they were very good and satisfied my cravings for salty snacks so I’m very hopeful these are just as good.

Snack Out Loud Crunchy Bean Snack-35g $2.00

These I have had before, though in another flavour, and they are so freaking good!  I had been very skeptical since it’s not really something I would ever think to try.  They are made from pinto beans that are roasted and salted.  Like all beans they are high in fibre and protein.  These are also vegan, gluten, nut and GMO free.

Dave’s Sweet Tooth Toffee-113.4g $5.00

OMG this sounds so good!!!  It is a mix of your regular toffee items, like butter, sugar and almonds but then they added milk chocolate.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  These are surprisingly low in calories, a quarter of this bag is only 120.

VoloVitamins Energy Drink Mix-5.2g $0.97

I’m always up for new water additives so getting one of these in a box is never a bad thing.  This one is Berry flavoured and has added vitamins to make your water or juice better for you.

Peaceful Fruits Wild Acai + Apple Fruit Snack-7g $1.17

This is just a healthy version of a fruit roll up. These are 100% Organic, vegan and paleo, gluten and GMO free, ethical trade, and rainforest friendly.  The only things in here are acai, apple, pear, and then some lemon juice.  I should let the kids have this but I think it’ll be my bedtime snack.

I am really impressed with this box.  This month has a value of $13.08.  Even though it’s the mini, I got 8 items this month and it doesn’t make me feel like it’s a rip off.   I am also happy that I can eat a lot of these things on my diet.  This is a good box if you are looking for snacks that taste good and are still on the good side of things.
