My First Urthbox

   A few weeks ago Gilt City had a deal for Urthbox.  I have been looking to try a natural snack subscription box for quite a while now, and the Gilt City deal was too good to pass up.  The deal was a 3 month subscription for $39.  Considering the box is normally $25 a month, this was a great buy!

   The Urthbox comes in 4 different varieties: Classic, Gluten-free, Vegan or Diet.  Considering I am watching the calories nowadays, I went with the diet variety.

  On Saturday I received my first box, and I was pleasantly surprised!



I loved how the box was packaged, and it even came with two $10 gift certificates for the Urthbox store, which I can use to purchase items that were in this box or previous boxes.  What I felt it was missing though, was a detailed description card.  I like boxes that come with information about each product and their prices.


Snacks

*Bejanfields Bean & Rice Chips in Pico De Gallo
*Viana Picnicker Veggie Snack Sausage To Go- Is this really a vegan Slim Jim? Amazing!
*Shelton's Jalapeño Turkey Smoked Snack Stick- I'm hoping this is good, because at only 45 calories it appears to be a great snack.
*Snapea Crisps 100 Calorie Pack- I already know I love these- and I'm so happy to see they come in 100 calorie packs!
*Licious Organics Honey Cookies Cranberry Almond
*Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts- I've heard a lot about Hemp Hearts and these are supposed to be a good topping for cereals or yogurts



Beverages
*NEO Water- This super water is higher in alkaline, electrolytes, and antioxidants than normal water.  I wonder if it alters the taste at all.
*Svelte Cappuccino Organic Protein Shake- I've read a lot about this Svelte brand and I like these protein shakes that are already made.



Misc.

*Spatone Pur Absorb Iron- This is basically a liquid iron supplement.  I've never heard of something like this, so I'm going to do some research before trying it.
*Salba Chia Boost- I think this is just a package of chia seeds, which I use and love.
*Eco-Dent Natural Oral Care Products- Gum, mouthwash and Toothpaste samples
*Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil- I LOVE coconut oil and always love to try new brands of it.

All in all, I have to say I'm pretty pleased with my first Urthbox and I can't wait to receive next months. 

Have any of you ever subscribed to Urthbox?  Any good healthy snack box recommendations?

I just wanted to let you know that this company, Urthbox, is ripping people off. I have been trying to sort out an issue with them for the past week, here is a run down of what has happened.

I just moved and I changed my address on the website the only place you can change it. I get the tracking info for my August boxes, I'm subscribed to three boxes, and I check to see where my boxes are. Tracking info says they've been delivered, they shipped them to the old address though.

Obviously I'm pretty disappointed so I email them letting them know what happened. They respond saying that I should have emailed them to change my shipping address and that if I want my August boxes I will have to pay $6 more per box for them to be shipped to the correct address, the address that I had already changed on their website which says NOTHING anywhere as far as having to email them to change your shipping location.

I let them know that I thought it was pretty messed up how they were handling this situation considering it was their error and their website issues that caused it to happen. To which they let me know that they would be adding a note to their website to email them if you need to change your shipping address. Yet are still requiring that I pay them another $18 on top of the already $70+ that I paid for my August boxes.

Now they've stopped responding to me and are censoring me from their Facebook page.

I've been all over the internet and have found MANY other people having issues with this company. They are gaining a very bad reputation and I can't see how any other company could want to be associated with them.
