Subscription boxes are all the buzz right now. In Canada it is hard to find a subscription box that contains healthy snacks. I like the concept of trying different snacks from different companies in small sizes. Recently I have discovered Snackbox and they fulfill my needs to enjoy a treat that is healthy and natural.
Snackbox is a monthly subscription and they take things seriously. With the help of holistic nutritionist and a team of experts they will select carefully the best snacks to send you home. What I like about them is that they taste the snacks to make sure you will enjoy them.
They sent me a box to try. It came in a nice, sturdy red box. They were very careful when they packed the box and it came in perfect condition. I like the fun of opening boxes and discovering surprises. This month we received 2 drinks, 9 snacks and 1 recipe. The recipe is for the Arora Creations Gobi Spice that is included in the box. It is to make Crispy Chickpeas. I can't wait to try them.
In the box they included a welcome card and another card explaining all the snacks, the prices and a photo of each items. They also tell you where you can find the snacks if you liked them. This will help me get more of my favorites when my box is empty.
Now let's take a closer look at what's in the box.
La Fourmi, Fruit and Nut Medley
I have never heard of this company before. Since we go cross-country skiing during the winter, this will be a great snack to bring with us. This Mélange contains Roasted Almonds, Dark Chocolate, Dried Cranberries. Dried Strawberries, Dried Cherries, Dried Blueberries and Dried Goji Berries. It will give us energy for the day.
Enerjive, Quinoa Skinny Cracker
Enerjive is from my area and I do see them at health expos in town. Anything I tried from them was yummy. They create food using wholesome and clean ingredients. These crackers are gluten-free and yogis, athletes, foodies, healthy eaters will love this crunchy snack.
Oi Ocha Japan's #1 Green Tea
When I was in Asia last year I have seen this drink in stores. My son was studying in Hong Kong and he liked this drink. I have not tried it yet but can't wait. This Oi Oacha is Japan's #1 green tea brand and means ''Tea, please!''. It is unsweetened, has no calories, and has Vitamin C.
This drink is a Blueberry Smoothie Blend. It it power packed with nutrients. It contains apple juice, crushed blueberries and banana, grape juice, crushed raspberries.

I am a chocoholic and was excited to receive chocolate in my Snackbox. Cocolico is a local Vancouver company. This Dark chocolate bars contains coconut and butter toffee pieces. They use 71% Valrhona chocolate. This will satisfy my chocolate craving.

Garden Veggie Chip snacks are made from real potatoes and flavoured with tomatoes and spinach. I really like this snack and the size is perfect. You can dip them in a homemade Greek yogurt garlic and dill dip for extra flavour.
This bar is a blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Larabar contains only the best ingredients.
Bella Viva Orchards Pear Slices
I have never tasted dried Pear Slices. In the Snackbox I received a full size from the Bella Viva Orchards company. This will be a great on-the-go snack. They dry the fruits and they don't use any preservatives or additives of any kind. Perfect for school, office, gym, and travel!

Another snack that I have not tried before. Pirates Booty is gluten and trans fat free. The cheese puffs are all natural and baked using real aged white cheddar.
Arora Creations Gobi Spice
This is a very interesting spice mix to use on chickpeas to make a Crispy Chickpeas snack. Arora Creations Organic Indian Spice blends are the first USDA Organic Indian grocery products in North America. I can't wait to try the chickpeas using the Cauliflower Gobi spices.

This product is made in Canada. They use superfood hemp hearts, a natural source of protein. It has 8g protein in this snack. This will be another great on-the-go snack for me.
