Last month, Jennifer on the Twenty-Something Bloggers blog, put the word out for an opportunity to try NatureBox. Usually I can’t shell out the moolah to subscribe to these boxes, so a free “demo” is always appreciated. On October 16th, 2013, my box arrived and I was pretty darn eager to crack into it.
In the Naturebox I got five different snacks to try. None of these snacks are made from things that are bad for you [which is always a plus, but let’s be honest I am the princess of horrible eating sometimes.] and some of the products are marked to be Vegan-friendly. I’m not an avid vegan [in fact I’m a carnivore…] but when there’s something that’s vegan-friendly, I usually attack it head-on because it’s made from nature & animal-friendly things.
Naturebox’s foods do not contain High Fructose Corn Syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, trans fats or any artificial colors, sweeteners or flavors. Each snack comes contained in a resealable pouch, so you can snack at your leisure and know that it’s going to be fresh each time you crack into it.
In my box I got Sourdough Cheddar Pretzels, Pear Praline Crunch, French Toast Granola, Flax Crostini Bites and Honeycomb Sunflower Kernels.
The included postcard gives you a few ideas [other than eating straight from the bag] on what to do with the particular snack.
As you can see the French Toast Granola was the first thing I tore into and it was awesome. I’m not a huge fan of nuts, so I was a little “ehhhhhh….” about the granola including pecans, but I didn’t even taste them, I tasted more of the maple and it was good. This bag did not last all that long.
I love sourdough pretzels and I love cheddar cheese. Putting them together shouldn’t be an issue, right? While the first chew and swallow was good, there are a few pieces that had an odd, bitter, wine-ish aftertaste.
The Flax Crostini Bites were unfortunately, not all that worth writing home about. Very plain and not at all flavorful or memorable.
I usually hate pear-flavored things, but I’m out to give this box of snacks an equal opportunity and make sure everything is tested. As expected these pear flavor-coated sweet nuts didn’t make it out of the gate. They were entirely too sweet and I don’t feel pear goes well with nuts, at all. Honey on the other hand is usually an awesome partner.
THESE WERE AWESOME. If you like David’s salted sunflower seeds, then you will like these, granted you also like honey. Like the French Toast granola, these were difficult to put down. Luckily, I DO have some self-control!
