Something Snacks March 2015

Something Snacks is a newish food subscription box. The cost is $13 a month and you’ll be introduced to both new and familiar tastes!

Since giving up on Love With Food (I just don’t like the snacks included. There are lots of repeats and they are BORING repeats) I’ve been looking for a cheap food subscription to fill it’s place. I found out about this box through various blogs, so I thought I’d subscribe!

For the month of March, Something Snacks was having a contest. If you found a “pot of gold” it means you’re a winner. I found this and was super excited! :O I didn’t actually think I’d win something. I instantly posted on Instagram (papperdellex) and was told I’m 2nd place, but I honestly don’t know how they are matching up the prizes? If I don’t get an email from them soon, I’ll probably be annoying and email them. :p

Nunes Farm Fancy Nuts – Roasted Salted Pistachios! – Yum, these look good! I will have to eat them before friday, because I am starting a dental work adventure starting friday. :/

something snacks 2Inka Chips – Plantain Chips – I LOVE PLANTAIN CHIPS! I just never buy them. So, I’m super happy to get these! I haven’t tried them yet, but I plan to eat them all tomorrow. I know that once I start eating them, I won’t be able to stop.

Burts British Hand Cooked Potato Chips Sea salt & malted vinegar – These look interesting! These are an imported potato chip. I always look forward to trying imported products!

sea veggies and crispy fruitBoth of these bags are already empty!

Crispy Fruit – tangerine – I never thought of freeze drying tangerines, and this is GENIUS! I loved these so. freaking. much. I just can’t describe them. They’re good. So good I might buy a dehydrator so I can freeze dry some tangerines.

Sea Veggies – These are roasted seaweed sheets. I love roasted seaweed, so I was happy to eat them. It’s only 35 calories a bag, so it felt healthy!

cookiesThe last items in the box! Be-Bop Biscotti Grasshopper mint and some dipped shortbread cookies! Both of these items are amazing. I ate the Biscotti for breakfast. My husband took the cookies. It was a fair trade.

Overall, this was an awesome box~ I am looking forward to my free months for winning. I hope they contact me soon about that! In any case, I do recommend this box, because the snack assortment is fantastic! This is quickly becoming my favorite subscription, and this is after my first box!

Yumvelope February 2015 Review and unboxing

February 2015 Yumvelope
February 2015 Yumvelope

Yumvelope is a subscription service that sends out “healthier” snacks made with less processed ingredients. I say “less” because everything in a box is still processed, obviously, but this stuff just has things on the ingredient label that you can pronounce, which is always a plus!

For $21, you get a variety of unique and delicious snacks! Most of the stuff you cannot really find locally, unless you go to someplace fancy like Whole Foods – and even then, you might not find it. It’s a lot of fun to get this box! 😀 Though, I think Yum-o-Box would be a better name for the sub, since it no longer comes in an envelope. 😦

Alter Ego Truffles

Alter Ego Truffles – Assorted box – Aw, yes, truffles. I will never complain about getting a box of truffles. These are also very tasty! I tried the sea salt truffles and I am certainly pleased with them! They might not be as good as Godiva, but they are mighty tasty. :3 Plus, USDA Organic!

Ellas Heavenly Hunks – Original Oatmeal – Ugh, these were too good. So good that I need more of them. So buttery tasting and just, wow. If you like oatmeal cookies, you’d like these. :3

Goodlife Granola – I have not tried this yet, but the enclosed card said that this is a Yumvelope subscriber favorite, so I am looking forward to it! It does look mighty good! The only thing I don’t like about granola is that while it is healthy, I could eat an entire bag at once, which kinda negates everything healthy about it. :/

More delicious~

Mayesa Cacao Mint and Mixed Berry – I have had these before and I LOVED them. I’m really happy to see two more flavors for me to try! The taste is so rich and smooth and really impressive for a healthy drink.

Amrita Energy Bars – I am a nursing student, so anything I can just stuff in my bag and eat later in the day is appreciated! I am looking forward to trying these bars!

So, I am very happy with this Yumvelope shipment! I’ll eat everything – but then again, I’m not exactly picky, so if I say I’ll eat everything, it really doesn’t mean much. Even so, everything looks super delicious! I enjoyed this box a great deal and will stay subscribed for next month!

Graze Subscription Box Review

Current graze box!
Current graze box!

Graze is a subscription snack box. They send out 4 individually portioned snacks. You can pick to get the snacks every week, every two weeks, or once per month. I get the snacks every week because I love them! If you use a referral code, you get your 1st and 5th boxes for free. If you need a referral code, I’d appreciate if you’d use mine: DARRIN6PP

I always love my snacks, but I thought the assortment this week was particularly good!

  • Mocha Walnut Cake
  • Fruit & Seed Flapjack
  • Jelly Doughnut
  • Spicy Sriacha Peas
Graze Mocha Walnut Cake
Graze Mocha Walnut Cake

I am most excited for the Mocha Walnut Cake!

What I love most about Graze – the snacks are tasty and pretty healthy. I don’t have to think ahead about snacks to pack in my lunches because I get 4 snacks per week. Shipping is fast and they always charge on the same day. Calorie counts are always listed in the box and everything is super fresh.

What I don’t like – They have raised the price a couple of times. I use to get the boxes for $5. So, as  they raise the prices, the box becomes less appealing. At the current price, I still love it, but I don’t think I’d love it if it is raised again. The snacks aren’t quite as tasty as Nibblr, but they are much healthier!

Overall~ If you love to snack as I do, subscribe to Graze, or at least try out the first free box. I love snacking, so this sub is a no-brainer for me. I’ve been getting the snacks for over a year now and I still think they are fantastic!
