Boxtera is a subscription box that sends you a selection of healthy, yet satisfying snacks every month.
Each box will consist of 5 different snacks that each represent one of the following categories: savory, sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. All of the snacks come in resealable pouches and are always free of trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial flavors, colors, & sweeteners.
Monthly subscriptions start at $19.95/month, but they also have a one-time discovery box for $24.95.
Let’s see what’s in my September 2015 Boxtera box!
The snacks were shipped in a quite large (and pretty heavy) box adorned with the Boxtera logo.
A peek inside.
September’s box featured some new flavors for fall. The info card listed each one along with a very brief description. Each Boxtera snack is resealable and contains a total of 4 servings per pouch.
Fiesta Sticks – These are described as salty corn sticks with a mild salsa flavor. I was excited to try these until I saw that they include whey. Boo. Ah well, I’m sure my toddlers will enjoy ’em.
Organic Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites – Woo! A peanut butter & chocolate snack that’s actually vegan! I was thrilled to see these in the box and would have tried some/taken a photo of them outside of the package, but we’re in snackage overload here and I’m trying to get through all of our current treats before I open more. #subscriptionboxproblems I did include a photo of the back of the package though, which is where you’ll find the nutritional info/ingredients for each snack.
Spicy Fava Beans – I kinda wish I would have taken a photo of the back of this package because the typos were… plentiful. (Examples: “oinion” powder, “garlicv” powder) Spellcheck that shizz, guys! Okay, typo rage aside, this is a spicy bean snack flavored with Cajun seasoning that includes chili powder and other spices (like oinion and garlicv 😉 ).
Wholly Wheat Mango Bars – These are basically a healthier version of Fig Newtons made with all natural ingredients including stone ground whole wheat, fig paste, mango paste, and rolled oats. My girls love fruit bars (we currently buy Nature’s Bakery), so I’m sure they’ll enjoy these.
Coco Nuts – While I do like peanuts and coconut, I’m not sure how I feel about the marriage of the two. I mean, I’m all about equal rights and whatnot, but this just seems wrong. Maybe I’ll just separate them all and put ’em in two different bags?
Boxtera Brew – I also received a bonus pouch of “Ande’s Specialty Roast” coffee. Cool!
Although I wasn’t a fan of the totally avoidable typos (former proofreader here!), I think September’s Boxtera box contained a nice selection of healthy snacks. As promised, it featured a variety of different flavors to satisfy all of your individual cravings.Browse more Food & Beverage Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory

The bags / healthier snacks kind of remind me of NatuerBox – how would you compare the 2? Does everyone get the same snacks each month (like Love with Food) or it is somewhat customized based on preferences (ala Graze) or do you get to pick your pantry (like NatureBox)?? And those typos would drive me crazy too!
But garlicv and oinion are my favorite flavors! I am actually kind of impressed with the fava beans though. I love them and they are kind of hard to find. We had an Italian bakery/deli that used to sell a roasted chickpea and fava bean snack mix that was delicious, even though there were only about 12 fava beans in each package . After it closed I have not been able to find a similar snack.
