One of the latest cosnumer trends seems to be new takes on “fruit of the month clubs.” From eco-friendly beauty products to baby supplies to organic chocolate, there seems to be a green box for everything, allowing consumers to try out a wide cariety of samples before making larger purchases.
NatureBox focuses on snacks because that’s the easiest eating habit to change. Do you know that the average American eats almost 25% of their calories from snacking?
Every NatureBox item is carefully sourced and nutritionist approved. The snacks are natural and minimally processed, if at all. I scarfed down a bag of lemony pistachios in about five minutes flat. Yummy and healthier than anything you’ll find in your office vending machine, but what about organic and non GMO material? The company was super transparent when I asked these questions and gave me these answers:
“We are working to continually introduce more certified organic products into our monthly discovery NatureBox. We work with a variety of suppliers and at this time, we are unable to guarantee that all of the products each month will be organic. Certain suppliers and individual snacks are organic and we label them on the packages when this is the case but we aren’t able to ensure that all of our snacks are. Expanding our line of organic snacks is of a very high priority for us right now, especially as we prepare to launch our customized NatureBox site in a few months. This will allow our members to customize their snacks every month and we want to have a large enough organic product line to support our members who have made organic snacks a priority.
Our policy on non-GMO snacks is similar: our suppliers cannot always verify the presence or absence of GMO ingredients so unfortunately we are not able to confirm or guarantee that all of our snacks are non-GMO. We’re obviously most interested in partnering with verified non-GMO manufacturers and suppliers and are working to build those relationships but not all of our current suppliers label the products. When identified as non-GMO, we do note this on the packaging as well. This is very important to us as we grow our brand and products and hope that when we launch fully customized NatureBoxes, we’ll have a wider selection of appropriated labeled products.
As you can imagine, our upcoming launch of the new site is very exciting for us as it will allow us to ensure that our members are able to receive exactly the kind of snacks that fit their dietary needs and preferences.”
Each box costs just $19.95 and shipping is always free with NatureBox. My first box contained five packages of gourmet treats that I would estimate would cost about $5 each at the store. So that’s definitely a bargain. NatureBox also donates one meal for every box to feed the over 14 million children in America who go hungry. Sounds like a win-win for better snacking all around! And, of course, it will be an even bigger bargain for my readers using promo code REFER25 for 25% off your first box!
