November 2015 UrthBox Unboxing
My first impression of this box was based on how long it took to arrive - over a month and half. It disappointed me because I’m now on a strict eating plan, so I can’t actually eat any of the treats in this box. Still, I wanted to unbox the UrthBox and see if it was worth the cost. There were thirteen items in the box, so I’ll be describing a couple per image.
The first item I pulled out was the Belicious REVIVE pouch, which was actually my least favorite item because I don’t like beets. This is a high-value snack, though, estimated at $4, so it’s a good item to have gotten from this box. The second item I pulled out was my second favorite, which was the pouch of Movit energy gummies. I haven’t actually gotten to try them, but I love gummies, so that’s what I’m basing my evaluation on. The estimated value of the pouch is $1.
I then pulled out a couple of nutrition bars, one being a FLYJOY bar in the Blueberry Almond flavor and the other being a Goodkid bar in the Apple Cinnamon flavor. The first of these is worth $2, while the other is worth $1.
Next, I pulled out some Crunchmaster multi-grain crackers (estimated value $1) and Seaweed Chips (estimated value $2.) The Crunchmaster crackers aren’t too appealing because they aren’t anything special and they only have seven crackers in the bag, but the Seaweed Chips look good.
A carton of Icebox Water was the next item. I was incredibly happy to see this, because it’s something I could actually drink on my eating plan! The water is valued at $1. The other pictured item is a bag of Cofresh Caramel Peanuts, which is valued at $2.
For those readers keeping count, we’re now to our eighth item, which was a pouch of Brother’s All-Natural Freeze-Dried Strawberries and Bananas. Honestly, this sounds so delicious! The value of this item is estimated at $1. I followed this item with a packet of Nairn’s Gluten Free Biscuit Bakes, which are valued at $1.
The final three items: RawRev Glo Creamy Peanut Butter and Sea Salt bar ($2), GoGo Squeez Appleberry pouch ($1), and Jackson’s Honest Potato Chips Purple Heirloom bag ($1.) All three of these items looked attractive to me, but again, I can’t actually eat any of them.
So, I can’t consume any of the box’s items aside from the water. Still, did I at least get a good deal on the products?
The total estimated value of the items in the box is $20. I paid for $25 for the box, so at that price I don’t believe it is worth the cost. HOWEVER, the prices of the boxes have since been lowered. You can now get this size of a box for $20, matching the estimated value exactly. And if you consider the bonus of having someone curate the items for you, I think UrthBox is well worth the price if you’re a fan of healthy snacks. Take advantage of the code "urthboxholiday10" to get $10 off your first box, in which case you'll get $20 worth of healthy treats for only $10!
