Back in early February I stumbled across a breadcrumb trail leading me to enter a blogger contest hosted by Boxtera. The contest asked that in 100 words or less I explain why I should be given a March Boxtera subscription box for review. I tried to distinctly put into those very few words why I felt I was the right choice and I must have been persuasive because I was selected as one of the winners. Yay me! Every lunch blogger I know would love to receive a free box of healthy snacks!

Now I admit I am a lover of subscription snack box services! The concept of a variety of healthy snacks being selected, put into a box and delivered straight to my door is a dream come true when you are a busy working mother of 4! Most days I am lucky to find time to breath (and blog ;) ) never mind go browse stores for new and tasty healthy snack options! If someone is willing to do that for me at a very reasonable cost then I say THANK YOU!

February rambled on in chaos for my family with 2 of my children having serious health issues but we survived and at last a beautifully packaged Boxtera subscription box arrived! In a way it is like receiving a gift. A beautiful package arrives at your door, you get to open it and discover the surprises within! Well OK you do pay for it so not truly a gift, in this case you are looking at prices starting at $30 a month for a 12 month commitment which includes shipping. Smaller commitments available for a higher price.

So what do you get for your money? The March box included (see photo above):

  • Kale Krunch (2.2 oz) by alive & radiant Foods – GLUTEN-FREE
  • Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar Puffs (1 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE
  • Surf Sweets Sour Berry Bears (2.75 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE
  • Good Life Granola (4 oz)
  • Organic Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans (2 oz) by Kopali Organics – VEGAN
  • Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips (1.5 oz) by Food Should Taste Good Brand- GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN
  • Funny Monkey Purple Crunch (1 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE
  • Late July Organic Cheddar Cheese Crackers (1 oz)
  • The Simply Bar’s Lemon Coconut Protein Bar (1.4 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN
  • Clif Crunch Chocolate Chip Granola Bar (1.5 oz)
  • Seasoned Sprouted Lentils by The Perfect Snaque (1 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN
  • Organic Chocolate Dream Greens Bar by Just Great Stuff (1.5 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN
  • Stonewall’s Jerquee (1.5 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN
  • 1 container of skinnybits “tabs” (30 tabs) – GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN
  • Berry Antioxidant Nut Butter by Artisana (.5 oz) – GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN
  • Kelapo Virgin Coconut Oil (2 – .5 oz packets) – GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN

If you were keeping track that is 16 unique products in all to try out, in just one month’s box. All of the products are organic, the majority are gluten-free and many are also vegan. I can say this box will appeal to many people for many reasons. Do note that the box is not customizable for specific allergies at this time. I will say I am pleased however at the amount of products that are gluten-free, I have a GF child and this is a big plus for me. Products will vary every month but Boxtera strives to have at least 25 “individual servings” in each box. I can vouch that you will certainly receive an interesting array of foods to try and enough to last you throughout the month (until your next box arrives of course)! This particular box was also a very good mix of products to try for both adults and children! LOVE that!

Final iPackLunch breakdown:

PROs

  • Delivered to your door!
  • All are organic, some gluten-free, & some vegan products available in every box!
  • GMO Free
  • Great variety to appeal to both adults and children!
  • New & unique products that you might not see in your local stores!
  • Pretty package is reusable and recyclable!

Things to consider:

  • Price point is somewhat high unless you make a longer commitment (although pricing is typical for whole organic foods).
  • Not customizable for allergies (not advertised as such, although many gluten-free products are included).
  • Lots of packaging waste so do remember to recycle when possible.

All in all I found the box to be delightful! Still have questions? Connect with Boxtera on Facebook, Twitter or on their Blog!

Sincerely,

 

Lunch made with products received in my Boxtera subscription box are served in a Leaflet Tight container for my preschooler Trevor:

  • Berry Antioxidant Nut Butter by Artisana inside the bunny sandwich
  • Organic Chocolate Dream Greens Bar by Just Great Stuff in the lower right cup
  • Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips by Food Should Taste Good Brand under the bunny sandwich
