I have a serious addiction to typical snack-foods (chips, chocolate, ice cream – you name it…I tend to eat WAY too much of it). That’s why I’m excited to share information with you about Snackbox – a Vancouver-based company and my new favourite go-to option for delicious, healthy snacks delivered right to my door!
The lovely folks at Snackbox sent me a trial package a couple of weeks ago, and I can’t rave about it enough. The concept is simple – sign up for a 1-month, 3-month or 6-month subscription to receive 10-12 nutritionist approved snacks on your doorstep each month. Each Snackbox contains a mixture of sweet, savoury, chewy and crunchy snacks. Packages are shipped through Canada Post Priority Mail to any mailing address in Canada. You get a very detailed “menu” along with the products including photos, ingredient list, retail value and where to buy them online or in store. Packages start at $24/month and include $40+ retail value in each box. What I love most about this is the surprise of new snacks I’ve never tried before (and didn’t even know existed), and the information about where I can buy my favourite items afterwards.
Now onto my favourite four items from the eleven included in my trial box:
1. Bella Viva Orchards Pear Slices – yum. yum, yum and oh so healthy (great to throw in my purse for on-the-go!)
2. My Smoothie Green – this individual serving size smoothie (blueberry flavour) was so delicious that I had a mini heart attack when my husband dumped the second half of it in the garbage (I had left it on the counter while I went to the bathroom and he mistakenly thought it was finished!).
3. Enerjive Quinoa Skinny Cracker – wow, these were incredibly tasty…the only down side was I ended up eating the whole box in one sitting (which kind of defeats of the purpose of their relatively low calorie count per cracker!!)
4. Pirate’s Booty Cheese Puffs – my girls (aged 1.5 and 3.5) gobbled these up in seconds!
For any of you who want to order Snackbox for yourself or as a holiday gift for family or friends, the company is offering our Modern Mama readers $15 off your first box (using promo code MODERNMAMA). And if you’d like to enter to win a free box right to your doorstep ($40+ value), enter through Rafflecopter below (contest ends at 11:59 pm on Tuesday, Dec 10th, 2013). Good luck and enjoy! We have no doubt you will.
Cheers! – Angela
