August Goodies

August Goodies

The card included in the box does not have any details of the items.  They are full size items and have full information on the packages. I have to say that this box was much better than my July Box for me.

The first item was a 180 snacks Rice Blueberry bites ($1.49).  If you read my LoveWithFood review for August you may have seen that I loved these!  Now I have a larger bag…they are delicious and nutritious.  Definitely ordering more and I might try other flavors.  There is also a Snapz apple crisps with cinnamon ($1.49) which is a yummy healthy snack.  These have three ingredients only: apples, cinnamon, and lemon juice.  The Emmy’s coconut vanilla macaroons ($2.95) look so good.  I am saving these for me and me alone.  These are organic, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO certified.

Sweets for Me

Sweets for Me

The Glenny’s Easy Peasy chile lime pea chips ($2.99) look interesting, these will be a Mike snack and he will let me know if he liked them.  The PopCorners chips ($1.99) in white cheddar will also be for Mike.  He loves white cheddar popcorn even though he dislikes popcorn so I think he may love these. Hope he lets me try one…LOL.

Salty Snacks for M

Salty Snacks for M

The Wild Garden hummus snack combo dip and wheat pita chips ($2.19) will make a great snack on the go.  Mike really likes hummus and we have never purchased snack packs.  They also included gluten-free Pretzel Perfection pretzel sticks in chipotle BBQ ($1.99) which goes to M once again.  Anything with spicy possibilities is his automatically.  Plus BBQ is his thing too.  This month has been a BBQ month for food boxes.

Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks

I had the Nature Crops bar with quinoa, dark chocolate, and almonds ($2.75) yesterday morning.  Not a favorite for me, it was too hard to chew but the flavor was not bad. Mike will be trying the GoMacro macrobar in peanut butter chocolate chip ($2.89) and I’ve read some good reviews on these bars.  The PowBab immunity boost ($4.66) will be saved for those pesky days when a cold is imminent. We always have emergen-C on hand at home and this will be a great product to try instead.

Bars and Vitamins

There was also a bottle of bai5 Antioxidant Infusions in tansania lemonade tea ($2.27) in our box. Mike wanted this right out of the box, he will have to share with me.  We both love Arnold Palmers and if this is tasty it will make a healthier option for us. There was also a small sample of Weleda skin food which I will not include in the overall value of the box.  I received another sample from Target yesterday so both Mike and I can try this out.  The full size bottle is available at Target for $19.

Lemonade, eBoost, Wella

Lemonade Tea, eBoost, Wella

The box had a total value of about $24 which is good since most of these items are not sold separately.  I liked a lot of the new items I tried so far and will be looking for them in my local stores.  I think the August box had great items and had a great value and variety.  Only one small sample in this box.  If you decide to sign up for Urthbox let me know, they give referral points only if I email them the information on who was referred.  Hopefully they will set up a better point and referral system soon.

The card included in the box did not have any details of the items.  They are full size items and have full information on the packages. The first item was a Pop Art Thai Coconut Curry gourmet popcorn ($1.75).  The flavors were nice and a bit spicy.  I’m a baby with spice, so this item will be enjoyed by M. The other flavors on their site sound yummy.

Popcorn

I’m not a huge beet fan, I tend to juice beets with oranges and carrots to get the good vitamins and minerals.  I was excited to see if I’d like these Natural Sins crispy beetroot thins ($3.25).  At first I thought they were pretty tasty but then the beet flavor came through (what did I expect…LOL).  I would eat them for the nutritional value alone.  The mango thins look delicious, hope they include those another month!

Beet Chips

Beet Chips

This tasted like a seaweed salad from my local sushi place.  The Seafood Love roasted seaweed ($.75)  tasted very fresh, it was just an odd snack for me.  I loved being able to try this out, part what is so great about getting subscription boxes.

Seaweed

Sorry for the terrible picture of the beverages, you can get a good view in the picture of the box.  The first beverage included was Mamma Chia Chia Squeeze in blackberry bliss ($1.75).  Chia is great for so many things.  Saving this for a quick on the go pick me up.  The Neo energy drink ($1.50) is in the fridge for M.  Great healthy option for a long day before heading out for a quick 20 mile ride.  The last item is a Smooch fruit snack ($2) in strawberry, banana, blueberry.  Another great healthy snack on the go.

Beverages

Beverages

The box included two drink mixes.  The first is an Amazing Grazz green superfood in chocolate ($1) which supports body alkalinity, boosts energy and your immune system. The second drink is a Ground Based Nutrition superfood protein smoothie ($2.85).  Another item for M to add to his cycling pre-ride snacks.

Smoothies

Smoothies

There were two salty snack size bags. The first is a bag of Good Boy Bops ($.50) sea salt baked chips.  Saving this for days when I have to pack lunch for work…but they look delicious.  The scond is a Harvest Snacks Snapea Crisps ($.50) which I tasted right away.  I loved them, they are like snapea Cheetos.  I estimated the price on these snack size portions.

I haven’t tried the Halo seaweed chips ($2.00) yet.  They look pretty good and have only 85 calories with a sweet garlic and sesame flavor.  I like that the bag is pretty big so I can share with M.  If you want to try them out they have a coupon on their website.

The sweet snacks included Honey Stinger energy chews in fruit smoothie ($2.25) which once again go in the cycling snack bin.  Lots of snacks for M in this box, this is one of his favorite brands too.  There was also a bag of Home Free cookies ($1.49).  These were like vanilla wafers and vegan.  I didn’t love them but they were okay and great for anyone with allergies.  The last item in the box, a Amazing Grass green superfood bar in berry ($3), I tried for breakfast and it was not my thing.  I think it was a texture issue for me but the flavor was not bad.

The box had a total value of about $25 which is good considering most of these items are not sold separately.  The items were all new to me and I felt great being able to try some new things.  Many of these I cannot find locally and it’s great to know what I’d want to buy if I see them elsewhere.  All in all, I still consider this a great value and variety.  No tiny samples in this box.  If you decide to sign up for Urthbox let me know, they give referral points only if I email them the information on who was referred.  Hopefully they will set up a better point and referral system soon.
