UrthBox is a healthy food subscription box. In this monthly box you get snacks, beverages, and other goodies with a focus on Non-GMO, Organic and All Natural items. Choose between classic, diet, vegan, and gluten-free, as well as between four sizes of box.
This is the SMALL CLASSIC and the box is $29.99 per month, down to $19.99 per month on a 6 month plan. That is an awesome discount just for signing up for the half-year!

I’m not really sure how I would feel about getting a diet congrats card!

The contents of Urthbox April 2016.
Neo Super Water Alkaline Water ($1.50) This water makes the following claims:
- Alkaline, Electrolyte, Antioxidant Super Hydrator
- 9.5pH Alkaline Helps Balance The Body’s pH and Boosts Immunity
- Electrolytes and Increased Oxygen Hydrate The Body Up To 6x Faster
- Antioxidants Help Protect and Revitalize Cells
I guess getting it in this box is a good way to test them out!
Ultima Replenisher Balanced Electrolyte Powder Lemonade ($0.99) You can doubleup on the electrolytes with the little lemonade packet – or just add them to regular water!
Mini Me’s Organic Rice Bites in Strawberry Yogurt Coating ($3.39) We’ve had these in another flavor and we were really wanting to try this one – so we were excited to get this item!
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds ($1.18) These are shelled and ready-to-eat. Hemp seeds contain complete protein, so the are the perfect crunchy topper for yogurt, or straight from the bag.
One Planet Morning Magic All Natural Granola ($1.67) This is a really fun granola, and is getting tucked in my daughter’s lunch box – it has bananas, pepitas, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds. This is a nice healthy treat!
Smarty Pants Women’s Complete Gummy Vitamins ($0.37)
Smarty Pants Men’s Complete Gummy Vitamins ($0.37)
We have had Smarty Pants a lot, I tried the women’s one and it was much more tart than I remembered. Anyways, a nice way to try it out and yay vitamins!
Voke Tab Vitalizes Dietary Supplement ($7) Made with natural caffeine from tea leaves, acerola cherry, and guarana berry seed, each tab has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. I don’t really go for these types of items, I’d rather drink my caffeine!
Popchips – Barbeque Potato
Roasted Chickpeas – Sea Salt & Lime
The family is much bigger fans of these two items than I am, so I stuffed them in the snack drawer. My husband loves chickpea snacks and they seem like they’d be great with a beer. Now that I think about it, so would the BBQ!
Paleo Ranch All Natural Peppered Kippered Beef ($2.02)
Paleo Ranch All Natural Maple Syrup Kippered Beef ($2.02)
I wasn’t really sure what to think about these! It turns out that they are chopped formed beef, sort of like jerky, but mooshed back together. I was surprised that they were pricey, because it seems like the chicken nugget of the beef jerky world.
Mediterra Sundried Tomato & Basil Savory Bar ($1.99) I gave this a try and it was just too sundried tomato-ey. It would be great in a different flavor – maybe curry?
SunRype Wildberry Fruit Strip: My kids are nuts about fruit strips, roll-ups, formed fruit anything, so this was a fun snack. Although I admit, I do like to pull these types of snacks apart too!
Mrs. Thinsters Cookie Thins: Is it terrible that this is my favorite item in the box? No, wait, I think the Strawberry dipped wafers were! In any case, these taste exactly like they sound – like crispy delicious chocolate chip cookies!
The April Urthbox was a pretty good box, but with some notable misses for me – common box items like Smarty Pants & Hemp Hearts, weird water, and caffeine tabs. Oh and the savory bar. Otherwise I liked it. I have an annual subscription and we always end up eating/trying everything so I’m not terribly worked up about it, but I’m hoping for some more items with broad appeal next month. The best value on this subscription is on a longer term.
