You can choose from classic, gluten-free, vegan, or diet box options. Choices include one month, three month, or six month subscriptions.

 
In the January box I received nine products, plus one extra goodie Reed's Original Ginger candy chews. Here is a short video of me unpacking my UrthBox.

 

 
 

Since it was already unwrapped, the Wow Baking Cookie Oregon Oatmeal was shared first.It didn't have raisins after all,  but it was plumb full of cranberries and apricots and other wholesome ingredients. It was a filling and delicious take on a classic cookie.

Annie's Naturals: Organic Horseradish Mustard was a welcome addition to our fridge. We eat a great deal of mustard as most ketchups are loaded with high-fructose corn syrup. The horseradish in this brand was not overpowering, but had enough kick to make it tantalizing.

Dang Toasted Coconut Chips was an absolutely delectable surprise to me. Ingredient list? Coconut, sugar and salt. I do not know how they make this crispy goodness taste so good, but they are addictive. I refused to share. I just made promises that I would get the kid their own bag. Maybe...I can see using the coconut chips in parfaits, on top of a smoothie, or even mixed into a bread crumb coating. They were my favorite item in the box. 

Annie Chun's Rice Express Sticky White Rice  is something I have eaten before. It tastes good and is easy to prepare. I decided to pair the rice along with the Tasty Bite Jaipur Vegetables.Whew! Talk about spicy, but I loved it. This is a nice shelf stable product, does not taste like packaged food, and the ingredient list is very short.
 .
There was only one beverage in the box, a Neo Organic Super Energy DrinkI do not normally drink energy drinks because of the high caffeine which can be problematic for me.  This brand offers the boost of an energy drink without the health woes. My husband sampled it for me and gave it a high rating, saying it had a fruity flavor. I took a small taste and also enjoyed the flavor.

Inka Crops Inka Corn - Salt and Vinegar were opened next.Corn nuts have never been on my snack circuit, but I tried these with an open mind.  I have to say they were very bland. Crunchy yes, but tasteless. 

As I mentioned in the video Justin's Nut Butter Almond Butter has had prime shelf space in our kitchen cabinets. It is not as smooth as store brought processed peanut butter, but that is not an issue. Rich flavor abounds, and it is easy to use in recipes.  

Most people enjoy nuts dredged in chocolate. If you are one of those choco-nut lovers, then you have to buy Next by Nature Dark Chocolate Cashews.I made one of my kids take them downstairs so I would not devour the bag in one sitting. Yummy.

This was a great crate of goodies, all of which were gluten-free. I loved the amount of items received, the variety and that they were full sized products. The shipping was super-fast which is a must for us snackaholics. Most of the items are available on Amazon and at Whole Foods.

What do you think of this subscription box?  Will you give it a whirl?

(p.s Make sure you get the Dang Toasted Coconut Chips. You can come back and thank me later.)

Pros and Cons

Urthbox provides a variety of  subscription options, and dietary choices. Also, since they average 9-10 products per box, the cost per item averages out to $2.50 -$2.75 each. I think that is very affordable. Just think, regular potato chips run over $3.00 a bag. Considering that all of the products are full size & healthier choices you will definitely get your money's worth. Plus you will across wonderful new products to experience.

Perks

They offer referral points plus member discounts, so you can earn big loyalty points for every purchase. Those points are redeemable at the UrthBox Shop.
