Forget those tiny treats peddled in many subscription boxes. The best thing about Urthbox is that the organic, natural, and non-GMO snacks they ship out are all full-size.
UrthBox offers four menus—classic, vegan, gluten-free, and diet—and four size choices, which range from seven-plus to 27-plus snacks. The best value is for a 12-month subscription where you can choose from the following memberships: Mini (around $20), Small (about $30), Medium (approximately $40), and Large (around $50). You can also pay monthly, or for three- or sixth-month subscriptions. You get a free bonus box with any multi-month plan.
You’ll get an interesting variety of chips, cookies, drinks, granola bars, chocolate, and more. It’s a great way to discover some interesting treats that may eventually make it into your routine.
Urthbox also offers lots of discounts and coupons for members, so you can continue getting the snacks you love for a lower price. Whether you’re buying snacks for yourself, your family, or your office, there's something for everyone.
Shipping within the U.S. is free, but delivery to Canada costs around $7.
Getting healthier is no easy feat, especially when snack attacks are lurking around the corner, ready to sabotage your hard work. That’s where Fit Snack comes in.
Each month, you’ll get an assortment of nutritionist-approved snacks to help you curb cravings and fuel your workouts. While plenty of subscriptions offer better-for-you options, Fit Snack is specifically designed to support you on your fitness journey. The company's offerings are decidedly “healthy,” not just slightly healthier junk food.
Previous boxes have included bean chips; clean energy drinks; hormone-free, low-sugar jerky; herbal wellness shots; and additive-free protein bars. If you fall in love with a particular snack, hunting it down is easy.
With each delivery, there’s an accompanying card that lists each item along with links for where you can purchase it. On the back, you’ll even find some training suggestions to help you stay fit. The downside is that there are no customization options, so this is best for people who want to eat clean, but don’t have specific dietary restrictions beyond that.
There are four recurring plan options to choose from: a one-month subscription (around $29 monthly), a three-month plan (about $28 monthly), a six-month plan (approximately $27 monthly), or an annual plan (averages $26 monthly). Depending on which package you choose, the initial purchase price will differ.
This snack box is a savior for vegans, particularly if you live in an area where vegan packaged goods are not easily available at your neighborhood grocer.
With Vegancuts you get at least 10 items, mostly snacks, with some interesting pantry products like date syrup or pho broth thrown in. While many other snack subscription boxes offer vegan options, this one stands out because it is solely focused on them.
Vegancuts’ curators often get their hands on items that are brand new to the market, so you won’t find them anywhere else. In each box, you'll get a variety of treats across the sweet-to-savory spectrum, along with some that are on the healthier side and some that are more of a decadent treat.
Whether your diet is fully plant-based or you are just trying to eat fewer animal products, Vegancuts will help you discover some truly unique treats. Previous boxes have included waterlily puffs, vegan mac n’ cheese, oat milk lattes, toasted coconut cookies, and a vegan alternative to M&Ms.
You can choose the frequency of your deliveries with one-month (about $25), three-month (around $75), six-month (approximately $135), and 12-month memberships (about $259). Shipping within the U.S. is free.
The Cravory has taken cookie creativity to the next level with its gooey, crisp cookies that come in some wild flavors. Lucky for us, the San Diego-based bakery has a monthly cookie subscription that ships all over the country.
Six new seasonal cookies of the month are created for each delivery, so you’ll always get something you haven’t tasted before. Past flavors have included pumpkin pie, citrus shortbread, cookies n’ cream milkshake, and pancakes and bacon.
There are three pre-paid subscription options: a half-dozen (starting around $11 per month), a dozen (from $25 per month), or two dozen (approximately $45 per month). There is a $7 shipping fee on the two smaller boxes, but it’s free for two dozen cookies, so your best bet is to choose this one. The bakery also has month-to-month cookie subscriptions starting at $13 each month.
We suggest (if you have the willpower) splitting the subscription with a friend, or sharing some cookies with others for good karma. The cookies can also be stored in the fridge or freezer to extend shelf life if you want to save them for later.
If you’re the kind of person who loves to eat your way through every place you visit, Universal Yums might be the snack subscription for you.
Each month, the service features a variety of sweet and savory snacks from a different country. But unlike other international snack boxes, this one chooses snacks from one country at a time, as opposed to snacks from various locations at once. In doing this, Universal Yums tries to give you a better sense of the breadth of flavor profiles enjoyed in each featured place.
The unboxing of a Universal Yums subscription is a treat in itself: Each bundle comes with a 12-page booklet of fun facts, trivia, and recipes from the country of the month, so you get a little more familiar with different cultures.
Previous boxes have included carrot and pistachio Turkish delights from Turkey, pomegranate jellies from Greece, and peanut candy from Brazil. There are three monthly subscription options available: the Yum Box offers five to seven snacks for around $15, the Yum Yum Box contains 10 to 12 snacks for around $25, and the Super Yum Box features 18 to 20 snacks for approximately $38.
After Danny Taing spent years living in Japan and enjoying the food, he was disappointed at how difficult it was to find authentic Japanese snacks in the U.S. As a result, he created Bokksu, a snack subscription service that curates unique gourmet Japanese treats.
Bokksu has built relationships with artisanal Japanese snack makers, so each treat is authentic—and they're not something you would easily find on store shelves outside of Japan. This service is a great option for someone who is curious about or is already in love with Japanese culture.
Each monthly box has a theme, like mochi madness, hanami blossoms, citrus summer, or glamorous Tokyo. Previous items have included sakura candy, seaweed tempura and shrimp chips, chocolate adzuki beans, mochi puffs, Japanese Kit Kat flavors, and so much more.
Each box has 20 to 24 assorted snacks, candies, and a tea pairing. You can choose from one-, three-, or 12-month packages. Depending on the frequency of your subscription, starting at $40 per month for an annual subscription. Shipping is free.
For those with dietary restrictions or allergies, this may not be the right service because there are no customization options available.
If you’re living the keto lifestyle, you know how hard it can be to find satisfying low-carb snacks on the fly. Keto Krate is a great way to prepare for when cravings hit, with snacks that are truly delicious and satisfying.
Each box comes with 8-12 items, along with recipe ideas and coupons. All snacks are gluten-free and keto-friendly, containing less than five grams of net carbs per serving. Additionally, the snacks in Keto Krate boxes avoid maltitol, a lower-calorie sugar substitute that can cause some people to experience bloating and indigestion.
There’s also a gift option, perfect for the keto friend who tends to get hangry between meals. It’s a win-win. Previous boxes have included options like parmesan peppercorn pork rinds, pizza almonds, maple waffles, chocolate, and keto gummies.
Keto Krate costs around $40 per month, with free shipping within the U.S.
If you're looking for store-brand snacks with no surprises, Variety Fun is the service for you.
The company offers a box full of mainstream products like Lay's chips, Doritos, animal crackers, Goldfish crackers, pretzels, Rice Krispies Treats, Oreos, and more. It’s basically childhood nostalgia in a box: a 40-snack collection featuring the best part of every lunch you had as a kid.
If you’re looking for comfort food or need to appease picky snackers who want something familiar, Variety Fun is a great option. It certainly beats combing the grocery store aisles for snacks that will make everyone happy.
Variety Fun offers two types of subscriptions: a Fun Box for around $30 a month or a Fit Box for about $40 a month. The Fit Box is ideal if you're looking for healthier snacks, but there's no option to customize it with specific dietary preferences.
Your first box will arrive three to five days after you order.
If you're not looking for a surprise in your subscription or have specific allergies or dislikes, NatureBox is for you. The company works a bit differently from other subscriptions, as it uses a membership model.
All products are NatureBox-branded, and you choose exactly which snacks you want. NatureBox's foods are all free of artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, and MSG. That’s the baseline.
From there, you can customize and filter snacks by a variety of dietary preferences. Need snacks that are high-protein, gluten-free, low sugar, and under 150 calories? There are options for that. Looking for vegan snacks that are also low in sodium? You'll find those too. You can choose from several types of nuts, trail mix, popcorn, cookies, lentil-based snacks, chocolates, and more.
Members pay around $30 per year, which gets you deep discounts on NatureBox snacks, as well as about $5 toward your purchases each month. You can also buy NatureBox's snacks a la carte without a membership to try it out. Your first delivery is free.
What Is a Snack Subscription Box?
A snack subscription box is a monthly delivery of your favorite snacks. You choose the frequency and your snack preferences, and a box is shipped to your home.
Can I Customize My Snack Subscription Box Order?
Most of the companies listed pick the snacks based on the company's specialty. For example, Universal Yums ships snacks from different countries each month, so the only customization is how many snacks you prefer. Plus, you get a booklet included so you can learn about the country of the month. Another company that keeps you surprised is Cravory Cookie Subscription. Each month, you'll receive six brand new Cookies of the Month. However, NatureBox allows you to customize and filter snacks by a variety of dietary preferences.
Are There Gluten-Free Snack Boxes?
While most of the companies do not have gluten-free snack options, Keto Krate snacks are always gluten-free. At UrthBox you can choose a gluten-free menu. And Fit Snack says that 80 percent of their snacks are gluten-free.
How Much Does a Snack Subscription Box Cost?
Prices vary depending on the size of the snack box you choose and the frequency of delivery. For example, UrthBox has four monthly memberships, depending on the size of the box. Mini is about $15, Small is about $25, Medium is about $35, and Large is about $45.
