Urthbox is a snack subscription box that focuses on products that are natural, organic, and GMO-free.
They offer 4 different box options to choose from: Classic (healthy snacks), Vegan (no animal or dairy), Gluten-free (100% gluten-free), and Diet (calorie/fat/carb conscious). They also offer 4 sizes (Mini, Small, Medium, and Large) ranging from $14.99 to $49.99/month. Monthly prices drop significantly with 3 and 6 month plans. Shipping is always free.
Let’s see what’s in the February 2016 Urthbox (Mini)!
A peek inside. Urthbox doesn’t include info cards — just a card like the one above that states the month and type of box. I received the Vegan Mini.
Qancha Air-Toasted Heirloom Corn Snack – I was really surprised by how good these were! They’re a simple snack made with just 3 ingredients: Chulpe corn kernels, avocado oil, and sea salt. They reminded me of a cross between popcorn and corn nuts.
Peeled Snacks Peas Please – My girls are all about pea snacks, so I thought they’d love these. Unfortunately they pushed them away after a few bites. I’m guessing it was due to the “Garden Herb” flavor. Kind of a bummer since snacks like these are such an easy way to get kids to eat their veggies. 😉
Paddington Bear Orange Marmalade Banana Chips – Real banana chips sweetened with a tangy orange marmalade flavor. I wanted to try these myself, but my kids beat me to ’em.
Giddy Up & Go Granola in Seriously Seedy – I’ve gotten this brand of granola a few times in other subscription boxes and I’m always happy to see it. It’s packed with good stuff like organic raisins, pumpkin seeds, oats, flaxseed, and more. It’s also vegan and gluten-free.
Designer Protein Sunshine Protein in Chocolate – A 100% plant-based (vegan) protein powder made with pea protein, fruit & veggie extracts, and more. Each serving contains an impressive 16 grams of protein.
XyliChew Cinnamon Chewing Gum – An all natural chewing gum made with birch xylitol extracted from sustainable US forests. It contains no sugar or artificial sweeteners and is both gluten-free & vegan.
Peater – The Original Green Pea Cookie – While the little pea on the label is super cute, I’m still a little wary about trying these pea-based cookies. They’re described as being “sweet, savory, crunchy and creamy”. Hmm… Maybe I can get the girls to try ’em first. 😉
Nuvia Cafe Instant Healthy Coffee – An all natural “healthier” coffee drink with lower acidity and less caffeine than traditional coffee. It contains no artificial additives, sweeteners, or preservatives and is vegan-friendly
While I definitely enjoyed the selection of items in February’s Urthbox (Mini Box), I’m a bit disappointed by the price. If I’m understanding correctly, this size box sells for $24.99/month (but goes down to $14.99/month with a 6-month plan?). That seems crazy high for anyone who chooses to pay month-to-month and it’s clear that the value is no where near $25. $14.99 is a fairer price, but it’s silly that you can only get that rate with a 6-month commitment. That said, if you’d like to try a box, you can save $10 (making the Mini just $14.99) when you click on this link. (No coupon needed.)
February 2016 Urthbox Review
I have no complains about the snacks, but the monthly price is totally unjustifiable. I honestly have no idea how they feel that $24.99 is a fair price for what you receive. I suppose it’s their way of getting customers to commit to a longer plan in order to save money, but still… Doesn’t seem very reasonable.
