*Disclosure: I received a product sample of UrthBox for review. All thoughts and opinions, as always, are my own.
Recently I reviewed a sample box from Urthbox.com for review. I had not heard of Urthbox before, but they are a monthly subscription service where they deliver a box of goodies to you each month. This is cool, but what really made me interested in them is that they have Classic, Gluten-Free, Vegan, or Diet versions to choose from. I am always looking for new gluten-free products to try out so the gluten-free Urthbox seemed like something that was right up my alley!
When I received my Urthbox in the mail, I was impressed with how meaty it was. For some reason in my mind I thought it was going to be like Birchbox and I was going to get small samples of everything. Nope. This box was jam packed with goodies. And it was heavy with all sorts of different FULL sized samples. Fan-fricking-tastic.
Some of the items in the box were items I have tried before like Justin’s Peanut Butter in squeezable packs (love those things) and others were new items I had never heard of before like chocolate covered cashews. My Urthbox also came with a printed list of everything that was included and a list of stores where you can buy the products. You can check it out below:
Each Urthbox comes with around 12-15 snack items. It is priced at $25 a month and drops slightly if you buy in bulk. For example, if you buy 3 months worth of Urthbox it comes out to $22 a month and 6 months comes out to $19 a month. I think the value is pretty good considering you are getting full samples of everything. I mean, this box is literally jam packed with goodies.
Did I try everything in my Urthbox? No. A lot of the goodies were quickly swooped up by my husband! Between the two of us, we tried almost everything except the Annie’s rice.
Overall I was very impressed with how many snack items the Urthbox gives you in a monthly box. I don’t think I would continue to subscribe to this box monthly because I try and stick to paleo snacks if I can. I could see myself getting this once every couple months as a way to discover new gluten free snacks but once a month would be too much for me. However, if they made a paleo Urthbox, I’d be all over it.
I did notice that the Urthbox is available to purchase as a gift and I’ve been considering getting a subscription as a gift for friends of mine who are gluten-free or are just starting out on a gluten-free diet. It’s fun to get new snacks in the mail, and Urthbox has the great potential to turn you on to new products you may have never heard of before!
