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.

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?!

20130124-213414.jpg

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!
