One of my favorite movies as a kid was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, partly because Willy Wonka was fascinatingly creepy but also because there’s nothing more fantastic to a child than an imaginary world of endless candy. And not just gumdrops and chocolate bars—we’re talking creative candy. I mean, everlasting gobstoppers? Brilliant.
Then you get older and watch the movie and realize that this amazing world of candy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For starters: cavities, sugar content, hydrogenated oil. This disappointment was recently fixed with our introduction to NatureBox, also known as Willy Wonka for Real People—a giant selection of delicious, healthy snacks that are sent to your home—healthy equivalents to the everlasting gobstopper. Like sriracha roasted cashews, banana bread granola, salt and pepper lentil loops.
Let me tell you how this works with our family.
Brett pulls a chair up to the computer while I’m snack browsing on the NatureBox site and gets way more involved than usual in my online shopping. He gets very excited about cheddar and onion sunflower kernels while I root for citrus kick almonds and lemon tea biscuits. We settle on five choices, compromising on things we know the kids will like.
They like the Granny Smith Apple Circles because they’re tasty and make cool glasses.
NatureBox snacks have been great additions to my kids’ lunch boxes. I try to get beyond the old sandwich, Pirate’s Booty and grapes routine, and NatureBox has provided some healthy variety to my kids’ snacks. They ate Granny Smith Apple Circles and Barbecue Kettle Corn and had milk and Lemon Tea Biscuits for an after school snack. And the Soft Baked Cherry Granola turned our plain yogurt into a much more interesting treat.
NatureBox works as a subscription service that offers you the ability to discover and enjoy healthy snacks on a monthly basis, and it’s all conveniently delivered directly to your doorstop with free shipping (as little as $15.95 a month). Plus, for every box of snacks that’s delivered, NatureBox donates one meal through Feeding America to help the hungry. Every month, you get to select 5 different snacks (3-5 servings per snack) from over 100 to choose from. All products are made from wholesome ingredients with strict quality standards: no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, no trans fats, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors. You can narrow your search to nut-free, gluten-conscious, vegan, etc.
