Urthbox is a fun way to discover some healthy snacks for you and your family

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the products for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
Urthbox offers healthy snack options for almost everyone on your list including you!  2014 is a new year and you can make a fresh and healthy start every day.
Urthbox makes healthy options easy to choose.  Every single Urthbox product is carefully curated and checked for ingredient, source, calorie, nutrition and manufacturing reviews. You can feel confident you are choosing something good for you and fun!
Select from Classic, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Diet or Snacker Box Options. They offer one month, three month, or six month subscriptions. Think about how excited you will be each month when you open your carefully selected yummy and fresh new snacks, drinks, food & more tucked into your Urthbox.  Don't worry if you find a new favorite is super easy to purchase it easily through the Urthbox online shop. It's January...start right now to make healthy foods a priority in your life. Let Urthbox help you do it every month.
Prices are reasonable as well. You can get one month subscriptions for $25, 3 months for $22 per month and a 6 month subscription for $19 per month.  Clearly the best value is the 6 month subscription and that makes your life easier.  Set it up and no worries. Shipping including in all the plans. Just wait for the mailman to enjoy your goods.  See what is inside and decide for yourself.

I just received the January Classic Urthbox.  I like that each box has a card with a summary of the products in the box and where you can buy them at stores near you.   I was interested to see that you can get credits for future purchases by sharing Urthbox with friends and colleagues through social networks...up to $12 per post! If you don't want to leave the comfort of your home you can log into the Urthbox site and just buy extras of what you like from each month's box.  Be friendly and share and you can get lots of extras too!

There was an interesting variety of healthy items in this box including NEO Organic Energy, Dangs Coconut Chips, Annie Chun's White Sticky Rice, Inka's Giant Corn, Wow Oregon Oatmeal Cookie, Annie's Organic Horseradish Mustar, Justin's Almond Butter, Next by Nature Chocolate Cashews and Tasty Bite Natural Indian Cuisine.  Keep going to get the details.

Have you ever tried toasted coconut chips?  So yummy. Good by themselves or sprinkle them on your granola or on Greek yogurt. Excellent. Love that they are non-GMO, gluten-free and tasty.
Dark chocolate, nuts, what in the world could NOT be perfect about this combination?  Add all natural, gluten free, no artificial colors or flavors and it is totally perfect. Seriously, these are super delicious.

I am funny with Indian....sometimes I am in the mood for it and other times it does not appeal to me so much. My husband was excited about this one.  I liked that it was a fast meal that has no MSG, is gluten free, vegetarian and non-GMO.  You can even microwave it so on those busy days if you enjoy Indian you can have a fast, healthy meal. The ingredient list was very clean looked too. You can't beat the convenience either.

This looked so amazing to me right out of the box!  I kind of remember something like this when I was a kid but I don't think it was all natural and GMO free.  If you have gluten issues there is no problem with this Inka Corn because it is gluten free. They are tasty and have some serious crunch. A good departure from the usual chips and they are available at Costco and Trader Joes.

Have you seen Jason's products before? These are so convenient. I have been buying them for a while now and I was happy to see this in the box. Easy to throw in a lunchbox or bag or keep in the car for when you are having a hunger crash. Squeezes right out and tastes great. All natural and gluten free, vegan too!

Oooh, I love Annie's Natural's but I had never come across their Horseradish Mustard.  We love horseradish and mustard and I had sometimes mixed them on sandwiches in the past to give them some zip. This is much easier. I enjoy Annie's products and like that they are all organic too. Get ready for some serious zip but this tastes so good you will come back for more.
Awww, they had to throw in one of my favorites.  We were duking it out over this Oregon Oatmeal wheat and gluten free cookie. Non-GMO and tasty. It was the perfect texture too just soft enough with a bit of chewiness. A good cookie.
One of my friends who is originally from Taiwan always laughs at me because she thinks I am such a nut because I love sticky rice. I always order it in restaurants. I could eat gallons of it but I limit myself. I can only get to the gym 4 or 5 times a week so I leave it as a treat. I like that the Annie Chun's Rice Express White Sticky Rice can be steamed up fast in a minute. You can beat that fast anywhere so at least when I really want the sticky rice I can make it fast and it is in a reasonable portion. All natural, vegan and gluten free too.
I had never seen NEO organic energy plus electrolytes before and I was interested. No artificial ingredients or amplifiers. USDA organic, gluten free and vegan. I am going to try this one before the gym on Monday and I will let you know. Definitely looks like a reasonable option. *
The final little extra in the Urthbox was two Reed's Ginger Candies. I love Reed's Ginger Soda which I keep in the house in the event that someone is sick.  I love that these, like Reed's Ginger Ale are all natural, gluten free and vegan. Tasty and good to keep with you especially if you are flying or going on a cruise.  They can relieve some nausea at least it works for me!*

Urthbox has a nice blend of items and looks like a fun subscription box I am such a savvy shopper I was surprised that they even found a bunch of items that I had not seen before.  Urthbox does the work for you so you can enjoy interesting new healthy options every single month.

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.
