Things I Love – Healthy Surprise

Before I start, this is a product review, but I have been compensated in no way by the company.  I just really like their product and want to tell people about it.

A while back, I saw a bunch of bloggers talking about the Healthy Surprise Box.  A box of delicious snacks?  SIGN ME UP!  So I subscribed.  I got the Healthy sized box, which is the middle size.  Yes, that’s $66 dollars I’m paying for snacks every month.  I wasn’t sure it was going to be worth it, but I figured I would give it a shot.

First up, the box itself is adorable.  It’s designed so you can rip the top off and keep the snacks in the box and then use the box for something else.

And everything in the box is packaged well.

This is a photo of everything that was in my December box.  Those are all full sized products.  The Healthy box guarantees 32-40 servings.  Of course, some of those snacks are multiple serving packages and some are single serving packages.  So that’s why there aren’t 32 items there.

My review?  Well, this was my third box in a row and I’m definitely sticking with it.  I love all the different snacks that come in the box, and I love that they aren’t filled with fake processed sugars.  They’re all natural, vegan, gluten free, and soy free.  I don’t particularly follow any of these sorts of diets, but it’s not a bad habit to get into.

So at $66, is it worth it?  Well, let’s start out with some math.  This size box is shipped free, so the total cost is $66.  32 to 40 servings.  That means each serving costs somewhere between $1.65 and $2.06.  So… not the cheapest thing out there, I admit.  But I still think it’s worth it.  The items are high quality and much better for me than the 100 calorie snack packs I often rely on.  And I love the variety!

While the price does seem high, I’m not complaining at all, especially after I checked out purchasing some of the products.  One month, there was a delicious nut mix that I loved.  I had gotten a full sized package and they were good enough that I didn’t feel the need to eat multiple servings.  And I went to see if I could find them in the store and not only did I struggle to find them, when I did, one package was $9!  (Each package was 3 servings)  I definitely got a deal with that Healthy Surprise.

Has there been anything I didn’t like?  Only once, and that’s due to my personal preference. I got some crackers that were onion flavored.  I don’t like onion flavorings, so I passed that snack on to a coworker.  But the next month, I got the same crackers in cinnamon sugar flavor.  Delicious.  Sure, I don’t always LOVE all of the products, but for the most part, I’ve enjoyed everything I tried.

I think for me, the variety is a huge selling point.  I have a tendency to eat the same things over and over again.  I have standard breakfast, lunch, and dinner rotations.  So getting to throw in new things as a snack makes my daily meal plan so much more fun.

So if you’re looking to try something new and different, definitely give Healthy Surprise a try.  They run various offers from time to time, so check out their Facebook page for coupon codes.

  1. We have to have little indulgences. And your Healthy Surprise snacks amount to less money than a daily Starbucks fix. My daughter and I sometimes like to hit a local spot for a couple of good craft beers and a shared platter of wings. Buffalo wings are not health food, but I usually eat a low fat, low salt, high fiber diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, so sharing a platter of Buffalo wings once every three or four weeks is not going to kill me. (Actually we get “buff-a-que” wings, a Buffalo flavored barbeque sauce.) My wife orders some protein bar things online. That costs more than the supermarket granola bars and may or may not be healthier, but so what? It’s not that big an indulgence and is certainly a very affordable one. I think these small indulgences can help us avoid the really expensive and unhealthy ones.
