I'm sure by now you've heard of monthly subscription boxes. They come in all kinds from pets, beauty, tech, gaming and food. These boxes are a great way to try items you wouldn't necessarily buy on your own, and find new brands to love and items to share with your family and friends. When Green fork-N-spoon, who curates organic/non-GMO monthly subscription snack boxes, asked if they could send me a box to review, I was excited to see what would be included!
The Green fork-N-spoon snack box I received was full of delicious products. It had chocolate, candy, potato chips, tea, granola and other fun things to try.
I was actually surprised at how much was in the box. I was eager to try everything in the box. Some of the brands like Endangered Species Chocolate and Stretch Island I was already familiar with, others I had never heard, and some products, like the seaweed snacks had me completely curious! As you can see there is a good mix of items in the box from sweet to salty and for adults and kids alike.
Let me point out a few of the items that interested me the most.
The first was the Numi Savory Tea in Carrot Curry.
The sample was one tea bag (attached to a $1.00 off coupon for a future in store purchase). I don't know what exactly what I was expecting, but it wasn't what I got! I thought maybe it would be a full bodied tea...it was actually more like a soup broth, and I really liked it! I imagine that it would be great to curb that afternoon hunger pang where we often reach for chips or candy bars. Or to brew up and put in a travel mug for those dreary cool days where we sit on the side lines of a sports field cheering on our kids.
I also really liked the Somersaults Cinnamon Crunch Snacks.
It's something I'll be looking for on my store shelves now. These little nuggets of sunflower seeds and whole grains with some molasses to sweeten them just a bit, have a satisfying crunch and a whole lot of goodness to them.
The Mediterranean Snacks Lentil crackers in Rosemary and Herb were good as well. They were nice and crunchy, not oily at all and had just the right amount of flavor to them.
I had been wanting to try seaweed snacks for a while now, because I have been hearing from some friends on Facebook about how good they actually are....
Well they're not for me. LOL! But I tried them, and had they not come in this box, I probably never would have. Now I know to pass them by in the store.
Inside the box were also samples of hemp seeds and orange almond coconut oil. Both of which I'm eager to try using in a couple of recipes in the future.
Overall, I was really impressed with the Green fork-N-spoon organic/non-GMO snack box. It's $29.00 per month, where you can cancel anytime. It is a little less expensive if you do a 3 month or 6 month subscription. Or you can gift a box to someone for $29.00 as well. If that seems pricey to you, take into consideration the fact that in general organic/non-GMO products have a more expensive retail price. Also it might save you money in the long run by giving you a taste of products you want to spend your money on in the future, and those you don't.
