Snackbox is a monthly subscription service for Canadians, based in Vancouver, BC, that specializes in curated selections of premium, natural, and most of all, delicious, snacks. Each Snackbox has about 10 – 12 items with a $40+ retail value. The number of products fluctuate each month depending on the size of individual products.   The products selected are always natural, and made with ingredients you can pronounce.  What a fabulous way to discover new and healthier alternatives to the typical junk foods!

There are three subscriptions for members to choose from. Prices start from $24 per month for a six-month subscription, $27 per month for a three-month subscription, and $33 per month for a monthly subscription (plus $6.95 shipping and applicable taxes). See the “Buy it” section at the bottom of this post for a $15 off coupon!

Give the Gift of Discovery with Snackbox #FMEGifts

I was really excited to discover Snackbox as it is so hard to find good subscription boxes that will ship to Canada, and I’m honestly obsessed with subscription boxes.  There is nothing as fun as receiving a complete surprise every month, except knowing that what you’ve paid for it is just a fraction of its value. 

Let’s take a peek at what was included in the November Snackbox I received! 

 

Give the Gift of Discovery with Snackbox #FMEGifts

 

First off, I was extremely impressed and happy to find a card that detailed the contents of the box.  This is such an awesome detail as none of my current subscriptions include this.  The card is a complete guide that details the retail pricing, where you can buy the product, how to connect with the brand as well as a summary of the product.

Roasted Chickpeas

Arora Creations Gobi Spice (2 packets were included)

Retail:  $2.99-$3.99

Arora Creations Gobi Spice blends are the first ever USDA Organic Indian grocery products in North America.   I used the packet and followed the recipe included by Snackbox to make delicious roasted chickpeas.  These were super delish!

 

Enerjive Quinoa Skinny Crackers

Retail:  $6.99/box

Healthy food that is good is what Enerjive is all about.  They take pride in providing healthy, gluten-free options for everyone!  These were yummy and crunchy and the sea salt made them extra yummy!

 

Teas’Tea

Retail:  $1.99/500 ml Bottle

Brought to you by ITO EN, Tea’sTea is brewed with premium whole tea leaves, with no added concentrates or flavors which helps preserve the natural tea taste. Lightly Sweetened with natural cane sugar, Teas’ Tea brings you the perfect fusion of green tea and real fruit juice for the perfect thirst quenching beverage.   I was actually sent a pure iced green tea which was unsweetened. This was surprisingly refreshing.  I added a little fresh lime juice just to add a little zip and was it perfect.

 

Bella Viva Orchards Pear Slices

Retail:  $2.99-$3.99

These fruit bags are the perfect healthy, on-the-go snacks.  Dried without the use of any preservatives or additives of any kind, the fruits are all California-grown and dried.  These are absolutely delicious and actually do taste like pears.  I love that the only ingredient is pears.

 

Cocolico Toffee Coconut Dark Chocolate

Retail:  $6.00

71% Valrhona chocolate folded together with coconut and butter toffee pieces.   Wow!  I was a little shocked at the retail value for this chocolate bar but I completely understood once I got to try it.  Amazing!

 

La Fourmi Fruit and Nut Medley

Retail: $4.38

A blend of oven roasted nuts and premium dried fruit, for the perfect sweet and salty snack.  This is definitely what I would call gourmet.  Normally I kind of hate fruit and nut mixes for being too sweet and too dry but this literally is perfect.  Although all that yummy dark chocolate in the blend I received might be talking here.

 

Lara Bar

Retail:  $1.99

A delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices.  Made from whole food, each flavour contains no more than nine ingredients. 

 

Sensible Portions Veggie Straws

Retail:  $2.25

Made from real potatoes and flavoured with tomatoes and spinach.  I had to share my bag with Keira, I let her try a bite of one and the next thing I knew she was sitting beside me on the couch asking for more.  They are really quite delicious and a great alternative to the usual potato chips.

 

My Smoothie Green

Retail:  $3.25

Power packed with nutrients and made from mango, guava, spinach, nettle, wheatgrass, broccoli and green tea.  The flavour included in my box was actually wild blueberry and it was really quite tasty.

 

Pirates Booty Cheese Puffs

Retail:  $1.99

All natural and baked using real aged white cheddar, this snack is gluten and trans fat free.  These taste like yummy corn puffs except baked and free of trans fats.  Yum!

 

True to Nature Hemp Protein Bar

Retail:  $1.29

This protein bar is made with hemp hearts. a natural source of protein.  

 

Total Retail Value of November’s Snackbox: $39.10

If you chose the monthly subscription you would break even.  If you chose the 6 month subscription then you’ve gotten yourself a pretty good deal!

  1. I’ve heavily been thinking on ordering this for my daughter. She’s off to college in January & has no clue on ‘budgeting’.. she thinks cash is endless :).. I’m pretty sure this would b something useful to her after a month or two of kraft dinner and ramen noodles lol!!!

  2. A snackbox would be no good to me, I’m too much of a fussy eater, probably I’d only eat 15% of what’s in the box so for me it’d be a sheer waste of money.

  3. I love that there is such a variety of products available each month as well as it being a great value for your dollar! I also really like that the products are natural and approved by a nutritionist.

  4. I like that the snacks are nutritionist approved. I think this is great. A lot of foodie boxes have snacks in their boxes that are still loaded with sugar or sodium but are deemed “healthy”

  5. I like that I would get to try different healthy snacks that I would otherwise be leary of trying in case I don’t like it. Seems like a great mix!

  6. I like that not only are their products a healthier alternative to other snacks but they are also often produced locally(in Vancouver or BC) or Canadian.

  7. ****** What a great idea!!!! Good way to know you are having healthy foods added to your daily routine! Plays a great way to try new foods!!!!

  8. i like that they are trying to show us a healthier way to live, we all snack and they are showing us some healthier ways to snack.

  9. I love sea vegetables (NOT weeds!) and was surprised to find the flavour varieties of seasnax. I would love the chipotle or wasabi flavours. I have to admit that I would order by the case except that I would have to find a way to hide them from myself πŸ™‚

  10. I love that they offer gluten free products, my husband and son are both gluten sensitive. This is a great idea. thanks for the draw.

  11. I like how there are options to select 1, 3, or 6 month subscriptions. I love the idea of trying new products and the element of surprise

  12. I really like the Sensible Portions Veggie Straws what a great idea and versatile. I love the snack box items and they inspire me to make my own some great ideas here thanks

  13. I like that the offer new snacks each month, that way you get to try out different things so you can buy them at a later date.

  14. I love that this gives me the opportunity to try out a variety of healthy snacks that I wouldn’t have tried before or been aware of.

  15. I learned that the snackboxes come with a guide that tells you everything in them and where you can find more of a snack that you like.

  16. i love this idea!! would be perfect for our little family to have a snack box of healthy snacks for my husband to take to work and for my daughter and I to munch on at home
