Want to hear about Nutribox and their healthy snack boxes?
Today I introduce you to Nutribox, a box filled with healthy snacks which are ideal for the workplace or even if you’re just a nibbler yourself. The boxes currently come in two sizes, small and large. The small retails at £25 and you receive around 18 items which include dried fruit and nut mixes, energy bars, vegetable crisps, fruit crisps, freeze dried fruit and even olives. The large box contains the same products but you get 50 items rather than 18 and it retails at £48 per box. Both boxes are available to purchase on the Fruitdrop website and prices include delivery. So just how nutritious is each box? Well firstly Nutribox is ideal for getting enough fruit into your diet but more importantly, each box has been designed by a nutritionist so it provides the right amount of protein, carbohydrate and fat to reduce sugar cravings which helps you to feel fuller for longer which in turn increases your productivity, perfect if you’re at work. It is also worth noting that all of the box ingredients are gluten free (although I do believe there has been some debate over this because of the fruit and nut bags but I’m really no expert)
In my box I received BBQ flavoured kale crisps, air dried apple crisps, dried cranberries, chili and oregano olives, dried banana, tropical fruit bars, blissful berry fruit bars, a chocolate mint protein bomb, no grain granola, trail mix and choc free fruit and nut. My favourite picks were definitely the kale crisps (they were really full of strong flavour and utterly delicious, a really nice change to regular crisps) I also enjoyed the chocolate mint protein bomb as it was a great alternative to an unhealthy Aero bar. For the rest of the goodies, they’ve came in really handy for snacking when I’m sat at my desk and when I am out and about, oh and of course when I want a sweet fix. I have found the trail mix and choc free fruit and nut bags are ideal as they are the perfect handbag size and they’re not too big so you don’t devour too much in one sitting. The only thing I didn’t really enjoy in the box was the bag of olives but I’m not a fan of them in general so that was certainly no surprise. Would I recommend Nutribox? If you’re someone who is a snacker and forever opting for bags of crisps and chocolate bars, I highly recommend checking the subscription out. I also recommend it to those who are always looking at ways to add more nutrients into their lives or if you’re a bit well, health conscious. Personally I think the price is a bit steep and would have obviously preferred it to have been more purse friendly but I guess that’s the way it is. If I had one more little niggle about the box, it would be that I wish it contained some more savoury items as apposed to lots of sweet products. Some people may disagree but I am much more of a savoury girl than a sweet gal.
