I am still playing catch up on a few reviews from December and one of those is my December 2014 UrthBox! I signed up a while ago through an offer on Gilt City or Rue La La or something along those lines and this is actually my second month.

UrthBox is a monthly subscription which delivers healthy new snacks right to your door. They offer a variety of box options (The Classic, The Gluten-Free, The Vegan and The Diet) which come in sizes ranging from Mini to Large. The Mini “Discovery Box” is $9/month and contains 4-5 snacks. The Small “Part-Time Snacker” box is $19/month and contains 8-10 snacks. The Medium “Happy Snacker” box is $29/month and contains 14-16 products. And finally, the Large “Full-Time Snacker” Box is $49/month and contains 20-24 snacks.

First Look

I purchased the “Happy Snacker” box and knew how many snacks to expect, but I was still quite impressed with the size of this box!  It was packed full of snacks.

The Card

UrthBox doesn’t include a detailed information card, but my December 2014 Medium “Happy Snacker” box contained the following items:

~Next by Nature Dark Chocolate Pretzels: These were great!  I’m not familiar with this brand, but it looks like they have a lot of great snacks.

~Home Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies: I love these cookies.  This box arrived last month at the same time as a few others, so after I took my pictures of UrthBox I snacked on these cookies while I unboxed everything else.  They are gluten free and all natural and delicious.

~Vintage Italia Pasta Chips – Alfredo: I’m not a huge fan of alfredo sauce, but alfredo pasta chips are a different story.  They are a great alternative to potato chips and have a lot of great flavors to pick from.

~The Good Bean Smoky Chili & Lime Chickpeas: I didn’t eat this specific bag, but I have tried them before and they are good!  I recommend trying these on a salad instead of croutons.

~Frontier Bites: Frontier Bites are made with only eight ingredients and are a nice on the go snack.

~Barefruit Crunchy Sea Salt Caramel Apple Chips: These aren’t quite as good as a caramel apple (or better yet, apple slices dipped in warm caramel), but they are pretty darn good.

~Hana Black & White Cookies: I cannot locate an information on these cookies, but they were good.  Very good.

~Peter Rabbit Organics Mango, Banana & Orange Pouch: I personally cannot get into the pouch trend.  I just cannot.  WB used to love them but I cannot get him to even try them anymore.  Now, L? He loves them.  Totally loves.

~Raw + REV 100 Fruit, Nut & Seed Superfood Bar: I wasn’t a huge fan of these.  They were a little too dense for me.

~Ricky’s Lucky Nuts – Coffee: I gave these to B to take to work since I knew he would appreciate them more than I would.  And I am sure he snacked on them while drinking a cup of coffee.

~Chimes Ginger Chews: I believe that ginger helps with hunger (or something along those lines), but I wasn’t a fan of these.  They tasted like ginger and peppermint which I guess are just two flavors I don’t like mixed together.

~Matt’s Munchies Premium Fruit Snack (Ginger Spice): I generally like ginger, but I wasn’t crazy about this one either.

~Positive Energy Orange Juice: This is basically caffeinated orange juice.  And I am cracking up because B was this close to giving it to the kids with breakfast one morning.  Luckily he looked at the label right before he opened it!

I didn’t do a cost breakdown on this box, but it works out to a little less than $2 per item. It’s a nice option if you want some snacks, but you don’t want traditional snack foods.  I am going to keep this one for a while, but I might downgrade to the Small box option.

Do you subscribe to UrthBox?  Have you been happy with your subscription so far?  If you are a new to UrthBox and want to sign up, you can use the coupon code “CRUNCHWEEK” to save $10 off your first month!

    I sort of miss UrthBox. Had them for about 9 months. Always thought everything in there was high quality. But I canceled all food subs for (1) financial reasons and (2) because I was eating everything in there in about 2 days. If I went back to a food sub in the future, though, it would probably be UrthBox.

      I need to stop eating all the food in the boxes.

    I’ve had those pasta chips from Urthbox before. The flavor was good, but they were like a huge salt bomb. Incredible for me.

      That’s probably why I enjoy them so much!
