Nature Box (February 2016)

I'm really excited to be reviewing Nature Box once again. They have such a wide variety of options - from healthy to indulgent - to satisfy any craving should be easy. They scour the globe and partner with only the best growers and producers to bring you delicious snacks. They combine unique flavors, with ingredients you can pronounce, to create great snacks you may not want to share.

It's time to change the way you think about snacking.

The first treat I tried was the Aged Cheddar Lentil Loops. "What do you get when the richness of aged cheddar meets the beloved light, airy lentil loops? A crispy, savory snack that will make you ditch the chips and wonder where your favorite new snack has been all of your life. Beware. They're highly addictive so get ready to get loopy."

The second treat I tried was the Masa Crisps. "Made with yellow corn masa and flax seeds, these crisps offer a satisfying crunch that'll have you saying "chips who?" They're the perfect side dish on Taco Tuesday, and great for munching on movie night. Just don't crunch too loud over the good parts."

I loved both of these savory treats. The cheese lentils were so similar to "healthy" Doritos, just without all of the fat and calories. Kinda the texture of cheese puffs without the nails on a chalkboard crunch. The masa crisps remind me very much of the crisps I get when I visit my favorite Indian restaurant. They're a bit salty and somewhat thicker than pappadum, but have a very similar flavor. I enjoyed these even more with cream cheese. Mmm...

I next tried the Harvest Nut Mix. "Nothing says fall quite like crunchy leaves on the sidewalk. But what do you get when you combine peanuts, wild rice sticks, almonds, edamame, toasted corn and sesame sticks? A full-on Harvest party in your mouth, with enough crunch to boot. Open up a bag, throw on some flannel and let’s get this party started."

Then I had the Guacamole Bites. "Give basic chips the night off and snack on something new and full of flavor. Unlike those standard, store bought corn chips, these are seasoned to taste just like guacamole. They are crunchy and satisfying with the rich and spicy flavor of your favorite Mexican dip baked right in. Share them with friends at your next fiesta."

I couldn't get enough of the nut mix. Bring me more nut mix. I mean, they're not too much different than other nut mixes. Definitely a little higher quality. I totally dug the soybeans and I just loved everything in the bag. The guacamole bites were an interesting snack. I like guacamole but these only had the lightest guac taste. They were not too hard but still like a chip. The flavor is wonderful. I highly recommend both of these treats.

The last one I tried was the only sweet one I chose, Sweet Blueberry Almonds. "Sounds like something your Great-Grandmother would shout when she saw a squirrel in the garden! Well, you can shout all you want. These delicious roasted almonds are worth hollering about. They’re made with all natural fruit extracts for their sweet and tart flavor. Nothing artificial. Nothing chemical. And that’s no hogwash, as Grandma used to say."

These were delicious. Not only are you getting the crunch and nuttiness of the almonds, the blueberry powder adds just the right amount of sweet fruitiness. 

I was very happy with all of my selections this month. I wish I would have picked another fruit or sweet item, but I have quite a few of those coming next month. Based on what I received this time, I am looking forward to seeing how my snacks taste in March.
