Daily Harvest offers a colorful variety of superfood-based, Instagram-ready smoothies, soups, vegetable bowls, overnight oats, ice creams, lattes, and more.
One of the biggest problems with produce-driven subscription boxes is that you might not finish consuming the items before the next delivery arrives, making it likely that some of what you ordered will go to waste.
Daily Harvest solves that problem, as all of its pre-cut produce comes frozen, so you can store them away stress-free. The company knocks down other barriers to healthy eating as well: Everything is individually portioned, and the prep on your end usually entails blending the ingredients or just heating them up. The cups are also meant to be your vessel, so you won’t need to wash additional dishes.
You also have the option to filter your choices by additional dietary needs (like keto or low sugar). Options like Green Chickpea and Turmeric Soup, Mango + Greens Smoothie, and the Mulberry + Dragonfruit Oat Bowl are chock-full of health-supportive ingredients.
We highly recommend Daily Harvest's plant-based ice cream, which it calls Scoops. Flavors available include Vanilla + Salted, Swirled Black Sesame, Strawberry + Rich, and Rippled Berry Compote. Scoops have a coconut cream base and adaptogen ingredients.
You can choose a weekly plan (nine, 14, or 24 items that range from about $6 to $9 each) or a monthly plan (24 items), with discounts for more items ordered. Then, you pick the most enticing superfood eats. Overall, prices vary from about $54 to $196 per week or $124 to $196 per month.
If you’ve ever looked at the vegetables in your fridge and thought, “I want to eat you, but you’re so much work,” Hungryroot is a great option for you. The company makes eating more vegetables easy.
With Hungryroot, you get a mix of pre-chopped, spiralized, or riced veggies, sauces, ready-to-eat sides, snacks, and even desserts. Each week, you can select from dozens of options like spiralized kohlrabi noodles, braised lemongrass tofu nuggets, cauliflower gnocchi, kale pesto, lentil quinoa rice blend, and almond butter brownies. (The Thai peanut sauce is also a must-try).
Available options change each week and you can mix and match based on your needs. The majority of Hungryroot's offerings are vegan, but it also carries non-vegan add-ins like chicken sausage and hot-smoked salmon, so you can please any meat-eaters in your households.
Depending on how many meals you want, the average price ranges from $60 to $100 per week. Minimum weekly deliveries start at $59. To top it all off, customer service is very responsive.
Vegan snacks have come a long way in terms of creativity, nutrition, and of course, taste. Vegancuts will introduce you to delicious, packaged snacks that are perfect for when you’re on the go. You get at least 10 items, mostly snacks with some interesting pantry items (like date syrup or Pho broth) thrown in.
While many other snack subscription boxes offer vegan options, we love that this one is solely focused on them. Vegancuts’ curators often get their hands on snacks that are brand new to the market, so you won’t find them anywhere else.
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 decadent. Whether your diet is fully plant-based or you are just trying to eat fewer animal products, Vegancuts will help you discover some new foods.
Previous boxes have included waterlily puffs, vegan mac n’ cheese, oat milk lattes, toasted coconut cookies, and a vegan alternative to M&Ms. Subscriptions are around $25 and the price decreases depending on membership length.
Jerky is a portable, high-protein snack that keto followers swear by. Now, vegans can join the fun with vegan jerky.
With Fake Meats, there are a variety of brands and flavors to choose from, like barbecue, maple bacon, Cajun, Buffalo-spiced, Sriracha, and more. While it’s not exactly the same as its meat counterpart, vegan jerky—which is usually made from textured vegetable protein or soy—is tasty and satisfying when you’re looking for a savory snack. And, it's generally reminiscent of shredded beef jerky.
With Fake Meats’ vegan jerky subscription box, you get five to six varieties to try for around $15 per month. With reliable customer service, shipping included, and spot-on delivery tracking, there’s nothing to lose. As a bonus, you also get a discount off any other purchases from Fake Meats, a vegan’s dream with all the packaged foods you might need.
We’re not going to blame you if you choose to ignore this fact: many wines are not technically vegan because protein from egg whites, milk, gelatin, or fish are often used in the clarifying process, called fining.
If you’re strict about being vegan or just curious to try vegan wines, Vegan Wine Club is a great way to experience different varietals and appellations without worrying about the wines’ contact with animal protein. There are other services that give you the option to add vegan wines to your shipment, but we love that all of Vegan Wine Club’s wines are vegan.
There are three different options: the Signature Club, which includes reds, whites, rosés, and sparkling wines; the Light Lover Club, featuring white, rosé, and sparkling wines; and the Red Lovers Club, focused solely on reds. You can also add vegan cheeses from Miyoko's Kitchen and Vtopian Cheeses to your shipment for a perfect pairing.
Subscribers get six bottles three times a year. Pricing ranges from $164 to $176 per shipment, including shipping. The cadence and amount of wine feels reasonable, unlike other clubs that require you to buy that many bottles each month. Of course, if you want more wine, you can always buy additional bottles at a 10% member discount.
Imperfect Foods was created as a way to salvage “ugly” seasonal produce that’s perfectly good to eat but might look a little funny, and therefore doesn’t get sent to supermarkets.
The San Francisco-based company partners with over 200 growers around the country to pick up fresh produce that might otherwise get thrown away. Not only does the company help prevent food waste, but it provides grants to nonprofits that are working to improve America's broken food system.
Imperfect Foods also provides reduced-price boxes to low-income families, giving more people access to healthy fruits and vegetables. You can choose boxes of different sizes, and whether you want conventional or organic produce. Unlike a typical community-supported agriculture pickup, you can actually remove and replace any produce you’re not into.
You can also add groceries and snacks to your box. Items are priced individually, so the overall price of the box will vary each week, but will often be cheaper than buying produce at the grocery store.
A vegan lifestyle isn’t just about the food you eat, but also about the products you use. Petit Vour has access to over 10,000 different beauty products that are non-toxic, cruelty-free, and plant-based. Just fill out a survey about your makeup and preferences (skin tone, desired lipstick colors, etc.).
You’ll get four or five samples and full-sized beauty products for skin care, makeup, body care, and hair care that are worth $45-60. The shipment also comes with a card detailing each product and the full-sized retail price, so you won’t have to hunt them down.
Previous boxes have included Inking Scents Roll-On Perfume, Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic, KVoss Lip Treatment, and Harvest Natural Beauty Lengthening Organic Mascara.
Considering that natural and plant-based beauty products are typically more expensive than their conventional counterparts, Petit Vour’s boxes are a valuable way to find out which ones are right for you.
Monthly subscriptions are $18 when you pay as you go ($15 per month if you pre-pay for a year) and you can also get about $4 off your next box if you review items from your current bundle.
What Is a Vegan Subscription Box?
A vegan subscription box is a service that delivers specialty vegan products such as fresh produce, fake meats, vegan snacks, and even wine or beauty products, depending on the company.
How Much Do Vegan Subscription Boxes Cost?
Costs depend on how much food you order for delivery. For example, Daily Harvest prices vary from $54 to $196 per week. With Hungryroot, depending on the number of meals you prepare each week, prices range from $59 to $129 per week.
Are Meals in a Vegan Subscription Box Ready to Eat?
Since there are such a variety of vegan subscription boxes, it will depend on the company you choose. Some items are fresh produce, others are packaged and ready to eat, while others are packaged meals you'll need to prepare at home.
How We Chose the Best Vegan Subscription Boxes
We researched dozens of subscription services and used several criteria to choose the standouts on this list. First, to be considered, the service needed to be all, or at least substantially, vegan. Nobody wants to be guessing which items are vegan or realizing that they can’t eat half the items in the box.
Our favorite options offer good value for the price, a wide variety of products, have reliable delivery reviews, and have overall positive customer reviews. They are also easy to sign up for and cancel, and deliver to most of the United States.
We tried and loved three of the subscription boxes ourselves (Daily Harvest, Hungryroot, and Fake Meats). The best subscription services introduce customers to something new with each delivery so they’ll never get bored, and include other benefits such as offering customization, eliminating food waste (i.e. Imperfect Foods' "ugly" vegetables), making healthy snacking easy and delicious (i.e. Vegancuts' expansive snack selection), and providing high-quality premium products.
