Stuff We Love: NatureBox


We love snacks. They’re the one thing that gets us through the inevitable afternoon slump—that and another hit of caffeine. Most of the time when the 3 o’clock hunger pangs creep up on us, we just run to the nearest convenience store. We try to take time to scan the ingredients, but we’re full-blown hangry at this point, and all of the options seem to include more sugar and salt than we care to admit. So we grab the closest bag, get our fix, and go back to work.

But snacking doesn’t have to be unhealthy. A friend tipped us off to NatureBox, a subscription service that sends you delicious (and nutritious!) snacks every month—no need to make frantic trips to the vending machine or convenience store. NatureBox lets you search its more than 100 snack offerings by taste (savory, sweet, spicy, tart), nutrition (vegan, non-GMO, high protein), and ingredients (gluten, soy, milk, nuts, eggs), so it was super easy to find the perfect snack to satisfy our cravings.

We fell in love with the first box we got. The honey dijon pretzels were finger lickin’ good and the blueberry Greek yogurt pretzels satisfied our cravings for something sweet and savory. Plus, we felt good about what we were snacking on. The label featured ingredients we could actually pronounce—and we love that the products don’t contain high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, or artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

The boxes are all about customization, but if you’re too busy to pick the snacks, you can opt for NatureBox to surprise you. We were a little anxious to let someone else pick what we’d be snacking on, but that’s exactly how we discovered big island pineapple, the pinwheel-shaped dried fruit that’s our new obsession.
