Crave Box – Back to School Snack Box Review

CraveBox isn’t a standard monthly subscription box, typically you complete a survey and if picked they send you out the box. I signed up on their website to be notified when a specially themed boxes and surveys becomes available. Recently, Cravebox has added two additional methods of obtaining one of their specially themed boxes. The first is through the purchase of a Series. From the Cravebox website:

  1. Series Craveboxes are going to focus around one type of box or brand and will consist of 3-5 different boxes spanning over several months
  2. You have the ability up front to purchase all boxes in a series OR you can enter the drawing like a typical Cravebox for a single box

The second new method introduced is the “Instant” Crave box. Their explanation of an Instant CraveBox, again, from their site:

For each Cravebox shipment, we hold a few back as replacement boxes. But if all the replacement boxes aren’t sent, we have a few boxes from our original shipments available. Other times, products are so highly rated that we’re able to get a few more. So we whip up a completely new, mini-shipment containing some of our faves and voila! An Instant Box™ is born.

Crave Box tells you the price of all the boxes in advance (it will always be $15.00 or less) but you don’t get to know what’s in the box, just the theme of the box.


Yeah! My Cravebox Back to School Snack Box is here!


First Peek!


Earthbound Farm Coloring book – $0.50 (?)

Earthbound Farm Free Product Coupon – $6.00

Earthbound Farm additional Coupons 2 x$0.75 – $1.50

We Love Organic and like salad in this house, so the coupons from Earthbound farm are great for us! The coloring book was a great bonus as the kiddo is starting to learn how to color within the lines!


Barilla Mezze Penne with Marinara – $3.00

Barilla Coupon – $1.00

Barilla has entered into the microwavable meals. We have not tried it yet, but I imagine it would be great to take to work!


Honest Kids Juice Pouch in Grape – $0.75

This is one of the few companies that has portable organic juices marketed to kids. Although the kiddo is not big into grape juice, I am really happy to have and organic alternative to the sugary, high fructose corn syrup alternatives out there!


Good Health Natural Foods Veggie Stix – $0.55

Monkey loved these (they are not the first variety he has had) he is a big fan of chips and any where I can sneak in a veggie is great by me (I did not read the ingredient labels in depth, but I did notice a good amount of vitamin percentages.)


SunRype Fruit Strip in Wild berry, Strawberry and Strawberry Banana – $3.78

Great snack! These are actually considered treats in our house, they are 100% fruit and are great motivators for the kiddo. The only thing that could make them better is if they were organic!


Kraft Handi-Snacks in Pretzel with Cheese Dip – $1.00

I remember these (actually one with the butter crackers and the little red cheese spreading stick) from when I was younger. Due to the use of annatto, we will not be eating these, but they sure did bring back memories – do your remember the peanut butter ones?!


Stride iD Gum in Peppermint – $1.25

I haven’t tried this yet as I am still trying to get through the end of my last pack of gum, but I do know I like Stride and am hoping this is as good as what I have had before!

The approximate value of this CraveBox is $19.33. This is still higher thatn the $14.00 I paid, but it is considerably less than most of my past boxes. So far, I still really like the CraveBox program and will undoubtedly continue to participate! Crave on!
