Every once in awhile I come across a product that I cannot wait to share with other families and this is definitely one of them. I was contacted by the Snackbox company and was asked to review their product. Snackbox is a monthly NON commitment product that is delivered to your door once a month for what I would say is a decent cost of $24.00 a month if you sign up for 6 months, although they say you can cancel it at anytime and it’s 100% money back guarantee. For that $24.00 you get $40 retail value in each box of 10 – 12 nutritionist approved snacks with new snacks every month! Their mission on their website is ”To inspire healthy lifestyle choices by providing all-natural, nutritionist-selected, tasty snacks, delivered conveniently to your door.”
The prices are as followed for subscriptions: “The prices for the box and shipping are as followed: ”The prices start a $24 for a 6 month sub, $27 for 3 month, and $33 for a monthly sub. The prices are all PLUS $6.95 shipping, and the subscriptions auto-renew when each respective term is up. So a 3 month subscriber gets billed every 3 months until they contact us to cancel.” This is one area I would like to see a change as paying monthly is much more feasible to families rather then one lump sum up front. I know it would make me feel more comfortable paying for it monthly rather then the whole amount at once.
In order for me to give up my time to review a product it must be something I am passionate about and food is something I am VERY passionate about. Not just any food but healthy snacks for my kids. I forever struggle with getting them to eat healthier but find that when I purchase stuff I think they will like it turns out they don’t and money is basically being wasted. There are many choices out there these days for healthy snacks with lots of promises about what’s inside that I tend to get overwhelmed with the process so I find that Snackbox
helps me figure out A: What is healthy for Snacks and B What will my kids like. I know parents say Healthy snacks are ones at home but let’s face it as busy families the alternatives can sometimes be useful so we want to find the healthier choices for our kids.
Our box that we got to review consisted of 11 items:
– Arora Creations Gobi Spice
– Enerjive Quinoa Skinny Crackers
– Bella Viva Orchards Pear Slices
– Cocolico Toffee Coconut Dark Chocolate
– La Fourmi Fruit & Nut Medley
– Lara Bar
– Sensible Portions Veggie Straws
– My Smoothie Green
– Pirate’s Booty Cheese Puffs
– True to Nature Hemp Protein Bar
The kids and I quickly sat down and read the accompanying brochure that described each product and where it came from. It was very well done and it told you what the retail price is and where you can find the product if you choose to want to purchase it later.
All in all I don’t have anything negative to say about this product itself except for the pricing choices. I believe it is a great way to learn about new healthier snack products that you sometimes may wonder about. They offer enough variety in each box for everyone in the family to try and the information provided is excellent! We found in our family that everyone had their own favourite choices of what they liked and what they didn’t like.
