Nutribox – Healthy Snacks Delivered

I love snacks. Snacks are the best. What could make snacks better? Getting snacks delivered directly to your door. Healthy yummy snacks you don’t even have to venture to Holland and Barrett for. That, my friends, is the dream. So, when Nutribox sent me a chirpy e-mail asking if I was interested in a box of sports nutrition snacks being delivered directly to my door, I was all in for the idea.

The Nutribox describes itself as “a box of deliciously nutritious snacks all made with gluten free ingredients, delivered FREE to your door monthly. Our healthy snack box is great if you want to eat more healthily or if you are following a particular diet or lifestyle and are looking for paleo snacks, vegan snacks, sports nutrition snacks, energy snacks or raw snacks.”

Inside the lovely box of snacks, there was this array of beauties…

I think you’ll all heartily agree this is an excellent snack selection for the discerning every day athlete. It’s all the sort of thing I would fill my top draw at work with and not feel bad about. It’s exactly the type of on-the-go snacks you can keep in your handbag for when runger strikes, or in your kit bag to have pre or post workout. I love finding healthy, nutritious packaged food that I can take with me to help me avoid making bad, caught-hungry-in-a-train-station-and-there’s-only-a-pasty-stand choices.It absolutely pained me to not be in the UK when this arrived. Luckily I have some ace (and hungry) friends who were willing to take one for the team and test the snacks out for me. Heroes. They set about testing, with several criteria, giving each snack a score out of 30. THIRTY.

The top three snacks were…

Ed’s favourite… 

“19/30. Damn good. Liked the texture. Good flavour and crunch. Like a peanut pillow. Memory foam pillow.”

Mike’s favourite… 

“16/30. None of us are marzipan fans. But we loved the texture. And the nuts. And the general idea of it. In another flavour*, it would have been tops.”

*I pointed out that the peanut flavour bounce ball was indeed, heaven on earth. 

Lucy’s favourite… 

“18/30. I loved these cheeky bad boys. Juicy texture with an acid explosion? Very sour. But we loved them!”

Other snack reviews include…

The Ludlow Nut Company Trail Mix and Scarlet Pumpernel: “For both of these we think ‘pretty standard’. Not pushing the seed boundaries. They’ve just poured seeds in a bag. Mr Ludlow has failed. F for effort. He’s disqualified.”

Pulsin Protein Sport: (see my previous review here) “The boys would be happy to take it to the gym…because they don’t care about the taste. And they are in pain.”

If you fancy one of these sexy sport nutrition boxes from Nutribox then I have excellent news! Nutribox have given me a whopping 35% discount code for the first 10 of my readers to use the code ‘SOPHIE35′ in the discount boxes at www.thenutribox.com/join. What superstars. Make sure you’re quick as there’s only 10, but if there’s demand for more I will give them my best internet smile and see if they can hook us up.

Thank you to Nutribox for bringing this excellent snack box to my attention, and to Mike, Lucy and Ed for so kindly testing out its contents.
