Urthbox is a subscription service that sends you, on a monthly basis, a ton of trial-sized snack items to sample. The company offers gluten-free exclusive boxes too – good news for us GFers! The focus is on healthy snacking, so most (not all) of the snacks had a healthy ingredient or two but many of the items still had a lot of calories (dieters be forewarned!).
The company was kind enough to send me its September box to try. I also joined Urthbox’s affiliate program and this post includes affiliate links.
Upon arrival, I was so excited to see this box packed full of goodies. It was exciting – like a kid must feel on Christmas Day opening a surprise present. I could not believe how many items were packed in this tiny box – wow – Urthbox, you should give your packing team a raise!
I only recognized and used one of the products in the box (Chia Squeezes); everything else was new to me. There were sample sizes of BOPs potato chips, granola from Made Good, snack bites from Gorilly Goods and Frontier Bites, bars from Goodkid, along with cookies, drink flavoring, granola bars, boxed water, and more. I took a bite of most of the items that I could bear (sorry, some things just aren’t that appetizing to me like sour cream flavored potato chips), the rest I offered up to my friends.
Sadly, despite the fact that I LOVED trying all these fun items and despite the fact that I really enjoyed my Urthbox experience, I didn’t discover any product I would go out and actually purchase. Honestly, it’s because I do not like the taste of coconut and 90% of the items in the box had coconut. Not sure why Urthbox think gluten-free people like and/or eat so much coconut, but a little variety of flavors would have made the box even that more delightful. Coconut is not my thing even though the ingredient has risen to meteoric fame in the last few years.
Overall, I really dig the UrthBox. There were a generous amount of snack items to explore, and the concept is an A++ with me (minus the coconut obsession).
Would you like to try Urthbox for yourself? Sign up for a monthly Urthbox Subscription, ranging in price from $12.99 to $39.99 per month depending on how many samples you’d like included in your box.
Here is a $5 off deal that never expires in case you missed the September deal. Good luck and let me know how it goes!
