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!
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!
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.
Arora Creations Gobi Spice (2 packets were included)
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
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!
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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!
