So I put my order in for NatureBox in the middle of the month, and so it seems I’ll be getting my boxes from now on right at the end of each month, around 31st/1st of the following month, so I’m considering this my Jan/Feb order.
Anyway, I got this great Groupon deal for 3 Months of NatureBox for only $35! ($60 value). I had given NatureBox a chance in the past and had mixed feelings on it: I liked the concepts and 1/2 of the snacks, but I wanted to be able to customize my box and choose the types of snacks I prefer. So, I was really happy to see they now have an option to choose all 5 of your snacks each month (or you can leave it as is and continue to be surprised!)
I’m not a huge fan of seed-only mixes, nor so I enjoy ones that are unnaturally savory, like ‘ranch flavored’ or ‘tomato basil’, but I do love party mixes, dried fruit, sweet nuts and pretzels, so I spent time going through the options and chose a few very different and delicious sounding ones!
These are what I decided on:
- Zesta Fiesta Mix
- Yogurt Dipped Pretzels
- Chipotle Maple Almonds
- Sun-Dried California Peaches
- Salted Caramel Pretzel Pops
Let me break down the descriptions for you…
First up we have the Zesta Fiesta Mix, which is a yummy crunchy ‘chex’ style mix made up of nuts, cheesy sticks, and crisps. I love getting mixes like these and will definitely consider it again in a future box.
Here we have the Salted Caramel Pretzel Pops which are honey pretzel balls coated in a salty and sugary coating. They actually got a lot of negative reviews from fellow box-lovers (of course this happened after I ordered them), but I actually ended up kinda liking them. They do taste a bit ‘fake’ but remind me of if you rolled pretzels in funfetti cake mix powder so I can enjoy them in small doses.
Here we have Yogurt Covered Pretzels, which are simply regular twisted pretzels covered in a white vanilla yogurt coating. Can’t go wrong with these!
Next up are Chipotle Maple Almonds, which I chose for the mixture of spicy and sweet! I usually love honey roasted blends, as well as those 5-alarm-chili spice ones, so this one mixes them to give you the best of both worlds.
PLUS, I got this freebie! I’m guessing it’s because this is my first box, but I also got this package of Honey Crunch Crisps, which taste like honey-soy sesame sticks. They have a ‘chinese-food’ flavor in a way, while also being a bit sweet as well. I wouldn’t have picked these on my own, but I ended up liking them.
All in all, my favorite(s) out of the bunch in my Nature Box were the Zesta Fiesta Mix and Dried California Peaches! I don’t think I’ll be buying the Salted Caramel Pretzel Balls again (they were okay, but not worth getting again if I can try another snack) but would recommend all the other ones as well.
I already chose some new options for next month, and fingers crossed they’ll be as good, or better! Interested in your own Nature Box? Sign up here and use my link or promo code SHARE10 for 50% off your first box!
