UrthBox - June 2014

I received this product for review purposes.

I hope your taste buds are ready for an adventure!


Introducing UrthBox, a company designed to discover a healthier you! Their subscription box consist of a large variety of options and prices. For example you can choose from a small box also known as a discovery box (7-10 products), medium box also known as the part time snacker (12-15 products), or a large box also known as the happy snacker (20-24 products). You also have a variety of lifestyle options to choose from such as gluten free, diet, classic, and vegan. Prices start at $19 depending on the size of the box and the length of the subscription and shipping is free to the U.S., $6 for international.


 Today I'll be reviewing June's small classic box. Check out my yummy snacks!


Naturalsins Crispy Beetroot Thins - I've gotta admit that I'm not a beet eater. I actually can't remember the last time I've even tried consuming beets. These however were not as bad as I thought they would have been. They're super crunchy, basically chip-like and are actually a bit on the sweeter side. 

Seaweed Love Original Roasted Seaweed - Ok, so call me weird but I love seaweed! These are awesome and I highly recommend to any seaweed lover.


Smooch Strawberry, Blueberry & Banana Fruit Snack - I usually steal little pouches of blended fruit like these from my little sister so it wasn't a surprise that I instantly loved this one. It's made up of three fruits and also fortified with chia seed and acerola. Great for on the go!

Missy J's 3 Truffley Treats - I was super excited to try these at first only because I saw one word, "coconut". However these turned out to not be something I'm into. I absolutely hate almonds, and I've learned my lesson with sea salt in sweets so next time I'll decide to read the entire wrapper before I stuff my face.


Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters in Apple Crunch - These little ball of clusters are delicious! They're surprisingly really sweet although they're organic and made with very few ingredients. Love!

Home Free Mini Vanilla Cookies - These cookies remind me of something my grandmother used to give me as a little kid and they're great! The vanilla taste isn't overpowering and the size of each cookie reminds me of Nilla wafers.


Ground-Based Nutrition Superfood Protein Smoothie - This smoothie is entirely plant based and literally something I need in my diet considering there are 17 grams of protein per serving. Gotta have protein!

Katapult Daily Survival Superfood in Tomato Basil Flax - I was a bit skeptical on trying this at first by the looks of it. Each piece literally looked like bark but when I tried it, it totally tasted like pasta sauce (probably because I received it in tomato basil). I'm not a fan of flax seeds but I can actually tolerate these.


Saffron Road Bombay Spice Crunchy Chickpeas - I love fresh chickpeas so when I received these I was super excited to try them. They have a nice crunch and are seasoned well. The size of this bag was also great to share (6 oz!). 

Overall this box was incredible. I received 9 products which is great considering that UrthBox promised 7-10. I loved over 90% of the box which is rare since I'm a super picky eater. I haven't tried many food subscriptions to compare this box to but overall this is great for a "small" box. I can't even imagine what the large box would be like. If I were to purchase this box monthly for $19, I can honestly say that it'd be worth it. I was introduced to tons of new snacks and even a couple of new favorites (I can't get enough of those apple clusters!). 

P.S. - If you're interested in purchasing a subscription or gifting for a friend, you can receive $10 off by using the code CRUNCHWEEK. The next box ships in 13 days so you might want to hurry!

  6. I am so signing up with that $10 off offer. A box for $9 isn't too bad especially since the products are good sized. I really loved that chickpeas and yes I would suggest reading the wrapper before stuffing your face. It was disgusting!

  7. This is a great box, I personally wouldn't use the service as I am a bad snacker and quite enjoy my unhealthy snacks in moderation however I know a LOT of people who would love something like this. Might just get my bff a sub for her birthday!

  9. This company has the worst customer service ever.

    I just moved and I changed my address on the website the only place you can change it. I get the tracking info for my August boxes, I’m subscribed to three boxes, and I check to see where my boxes are. Tracking info says they’ve been delivered, they shipped them to the old address though.

    Obviously I’m pretty disappointed so I email them letting them know what happened. They respond saying that I should have emailed them to change my shipping address and that if I want my August boxes I will have to pay $6 more per box for them to be shipped to the correct address, the address that I had already changed on their website which says NOTHING anywhere as far as having to email them to change your shipping location.

    I let them know that I thought it was pretty messed up how they were handling this situation considering it was their error and their website issues that caused it to happen. To which they let me know that they would be adding a note to their website to email them if you need to change your shipping address. Yet are still requiring that I pay them another $18 on top of the already $70+ that I paid for my August boxes.

    Now they’ve stopped responding to me and are censoring me from their Facebook page.

    This is a terrible company with terrible standards, they will not last long.
