Save yourself from the afternoon snack attack with a healthier alternative! You’ve probably heard of these healthy food subscription boxes while listening to Pandora. Or maybe you’ve even received a coupon for a free organic snack box in a recent mail package. I’ve tried a couple of them and have been pleased with my experience, although for me, I prefer to buy my snacks at the store. However, if you struggle with those 2 pm food cravings and find yourself wandering over to the vending machine for some not so nutritious snacks, a monthly healthy snack box may be a good idea for you. You could even have your healthy food subscription box shipped directly to your office. Alert: Fake cheese bites filled with preservatives, you’ve been warned!

Treatsie Review

Visit Website

Treatsie boxIf you’re a health-conscious person looking for healthy snacks, then Treatsie probably isn’t the right nibble box for you. Treatsie sends gourmet sweets to your door. If there’s something in the box that you love, then you can order more of it online. We know what you’re thinking, what about shipping chocolate during the summer months? Treatsie ships the orders in insulated packaging with ice packs to keep the sweets cold. That way you don’t end up with a melted pile of chocolate. If you enjoy trying new desserts, then this is the box for you.

  • Wedding favors available
  • Purchase individual snacks
  • Treatsie Loyalty Points (get $10 for every 100 points spent—$1 spent = 1 point)

Vegan Cuts Review

Visit WebsiteVegan Cuts

The Snack Box from Vegan Cuts ships with 7-10 vegan foods and drinks inside. The products vary in size from samples to full size so you can try lots of new items. Although this is a very diet-specific box, it’s an excellent option for those who are vegan or enjoy eating vegan goodies.

  • Majority of the foods and drinks are gluten free
  • Free shipping to the U.S.

Why Should You Buy a Healthy Snack Box?

Natural monthly food subscriptions are popular because they help you with portion sizes and provide healthier options than the candy bar you may be tempted to buy at the gas station. So if you’re looking to improve your health or just want to try some new snacks, these monthly deliveries offer great options!

Have you tried one of these boxes? What did you think?

One of Kimberly’s favorite things to do is cook. She is trying her best to be more conscious about the nutrients she puts into her body and enjoys trying new recipes. Kimberly grew up helping her dad with the family garden and hopes to have her own garden some day. She enjoys brightening up her dishes with the food mother nature can provide and enjoys composting her produce scraps.

Graze is huge disappointment. My 12 year old daughter found the website and talked me into signing up because we would get a small free snack box. You needed to sign up for a recurring shipment but it says you can cancel at any time. My daughter chose her preferred snacks and I put in my visa information. A few days later I felt uncomfortable about the over-priced service and cancelled it. A very rude customer service representative “Risa” told me we could only have the “free” box if we hadn’t cancelled the recurring order. Well, that isn’t a free… Read more »

Graze has a cut-off time for orders and shipment. You likely canceled your order before they put it together, so they took it as canceling the free sample as well. They’re pretty clear about that when you place an order or check your status.

Blue Sky Sodas if available in your area are a healthier alternative.

BEWARE: Urthbox has terrible customer service. I purchased a Groupon ticket for a three months subscription and Urthbox charged me full price although I entered a voucher number on their website. Since then, I have written countless emails to Urthbox requesting a refund as I should not have been charged at all. They have not made any steps to refund me. Absolutely terrible…stealing money from customers. I do not recommend you purchase anything from this company. Also, what others say is true… their subscription is automatically renewed. What a scam.

Hello fellow foodies,

I’ve been using HelloFresh for a while now, and I am continuously amazed at how simple their meals are to prepare and how fresh and delicious all of their ingredients are! Their packaging is a dream and their delivery is reliable. This is such a time save I don’t know what I’d do w/o their amazing service!

Cheers!

BUYER BEWARE with Urthbox. Read the fine print. The Auto Renewal is pre-checked. They won’t do anything to resolve the issue if you haven’t read the fine print yourself even if your start through a Groupon. You can’t select the snacks that you like or want to try. Try another service.

Graze lets you “hold your subscription” if you don’t want it to auto send weekly, bi weekly, or every 4 weeks. I hold it off if I still have many snacks left over, then resume later.

BEWARE: When you sign up for Urthbox there is an “AUTO RENEWAL” box that is PRE-CHECKED! I purchased a 3 month subscription for my daughter’s second semester in university and didn’t notice that they were continue to bill me until the second renewal ($250 later). Customer service was very unreasonable, condescending, and refused to do anything to resolve the issue besides cancel the subscription for the next time. They wouldn’t refund the money even though the next set of boxes hadn’t been sent and my daughter was at home for the summer so she didn’t even need the products. They… Read more »

I can say I’ve had a similar experience with terrible customer service at Urthbox. No email reminder, no notification of the full charge coming. Contacted customer service and received only childish response, three weeks later my box arrives. They had an opportunity to make this customer happy, no chance I’d ever try them again.

Kimberly has written an article that was actually fun to read. I really enjoy reading the pro and con. I am not so much into the subscription boxes the caters to dietary restriction. However, I do like the subscription boxes that provide a healthier alternative then eating chips or candy bars, and it seems that every one of these subscription boxes meet that requirement. If I had to choose a winner, it would be Love with Food. For me the best part of the subscription box is the mystery. It allow me to think outside the “box” and try something… Read more »

Wow, I really enjoyed this review and I’m gonna save money and health. Great job Kim! And now I can stop buying, cheese balls…and because I’m a Muslim (so can’t eat products with animal products, at least that’s not verified by an Islamic authority) I can choose vegan and this article is concise and to the point.

P.S. cheese balls are tasty!

I too was looking for a snack box option. I really only eat every other day or so (that’s a good week!) so looking for small healthy “snacks” that would help sustain me. Your article was very informative as I really didn’t know what was available. Thank you for making my choice a little easier with your comparisons.
