Nature Box Free Trial- January 2015


I know that recently I posted about several subscription services that I have been wanting to try. Right around that time, Naturebox launched their full website for Canadians which allowed the free trial to be purchased by us. You do need to pay the $7.95 shipping cost but you get 4 single serving sample packets of snacks and then one full sized bag of snacks as well. This allows you to get a feel for what their snacks are like, should you want to fully subscribe.

Be aware that purchasing the trial will automatically set up you up to be re-billed monthly for the full subscription unless you cancel before you are charged again. The monthly deluxe box is $19.95 monthly (plus shipping) and you get 5 full sized bags of snacks. They do have other size options which are: 3 snacks ($13.95 + shipping), 10 snacks ($29.95 + shipping), or 20 snacks ($49.95 + shipping). The shipping for Canadians is $7.95 per box. It used to be $4.95 but the cost went up for some reason when they launched the full site which isn’t the best. With the exchange rate at the moment, the cost can end up being fairly high. Let’s see what came in my trial box.

January 2015 Box.

Cranberry Medley BagCranberry Medley

Cranberry Medley

Looking for your midday snack boost? Munch on this fresh new take on dried blueberries and cranberries flavoured with pomegranate and açai. With no artificial sweeteners, this is one super snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you guilt-free.

I was worried that this one would just taste like dried cranberries which I don’t mind but they can be a little tart/bitter. These were really tasty! They have a sweetness to them which is just great. I haven’t decided yet how I want to eat these. Either by the handful or mixed in with my cereal in the morning.

Garden Tomato Crunchies BagGrden Tomato Crunchies

Garden Tomato Crunchies

These Crunchies are a great choice for all the almond fans out there – the bite-sized pieces let you enjoy an effortless almond crunch. Plus, the tangy flavors of summer tomato satisfy a savory craving even when you can’t get your hands on a vine-ripened variety.

I was pretty excited to be getting these. Almonds aren’t my favourite but I love that these are just almond pieces. I also love tomato so I was looking forward to trying them. At first taste I thought they were just alright but I find myself returning to the little bag to have some more. I wouldn’t say they just taste like tomato, but there is something so familiar about them to me. I almost want to say that they remind me of the pizza flavoured Pringle Stix. I’m not sure if that’s what it is or not but it might be.

Jalapeno Cashews BagJalapeno Cashews

Jalapeño Cashews

Grab your favorite ice-cold beverage and kick up your feet as you enjoy these Southwestern-inspired cashews. With minimal ingredients, these savory cashews have the protein you need to help you feel fuller longer. The spicy kick from jalapeño seasoning makes for a fiery crunch that will leave your taste buds tingling.

Pouring these out, I didn’t they looked all that seasoned but I guess that’s how they make them healthier. Usually seasoned products have a more granulated seasoning on them but it is a lot of salt in those. I do love seasoned things so finding a healthier option is great for me! These are such an interesting snack. They aren’t really spicy like you would think something would be when it is jalapeño flavoured. However, they do have that super yummy jalapeño taste! I am super excited about these! I know that nuts are good for you, but generally I don’t like them enough to just snack on them. These will be a better option for me than regular seasoned nuts would be.

Sea Salt Sun Crunch BagSea Salt Sun Crunch

Sea Salt Sun-Crunch

You’ve had an early dinner so the snack attack starts around 8pm. You don’t normally get into the habit of late-night eating but a few bites won’t hurt. Crunch on this savory snack with a hint of salt and a complete sunflower crispiness. Just round it out with an ice-cold glass of fruit-infused water!

For some reason, I was picturing these as thin crackers but they really are quite thick. You can see from the picture that they are just loaded with sunflower seeds. They definitely look pretty healthy! These certainly are crunchy which is awesome because there are many times when I am craving something crunchy to snack on but can’t find anything in the cupboard. They do taste relatively salty but it shouldn’t be too bad as long as you aren’t sitting eating the whole bag.

Blueberry Nom Noms BagBlueberry Nom Noms

Blueberry Nom Noms

Sink your teeth into these soft baked Nom Noms- they are almost like the cookie dough your mom wouldn’t let you eat as a kid, but good for you!

Now, let me preface this one with me saying that I had seen a lot of people getting nom noms (in different flavours) as their full sized item and I wasn’t particularly excited about it. I didn’t really want to get them because there were other things that I would have rather tried. I did get them and silly me, what did I know about anything before. These are really tasty! You only get about 5 in a package but they are really big and dense. You wouldn’t need much of this to fill you up. I am glad that I got to try these ones!

I am really happy with my sampler pack for Naturebox! I think that I will get a full months worth and see how I feel about it. It can be a little expensive with the shipping cost and exchange rate but maybe this will help me be a healthier snacker which would be good for sure! Talking with my brother and my dad I offered to get a bigger box if they wanted to split it with me. Just to share the love and lower the cost of course! At this point, I would recommend Naturebox to friends, especially if they lived in the US and actually only had to pay $20 a month for it.
