Munch Better is a subscription box for Canadians who want to discover amazing healthy snacks. You’ll get 5-8 carefully chosen snacks a month sourced from a variety of healthy food companies, and often a couple of samples. You’ll also get a special item to help kick-start a healthy habit. Some examples of snacks they include: raw energy bars, organic fruit and nut mixes, vegan cookies, artisanal crackers, dark chocolate…and much more.
Cost: $28/month, $79/3 months ($26.33/month), or $149/6 months ($24.83/month) - Shipping included. Ships to Canada only.
We love snack boxes around here, so I've wanted to try Munch Better for a while. What's good about this box is that a large portion of the snacks are vegan and gluten-free.
GORP Peanut Butter & Raspberry Clean Energy Bar
I didn't expect to like this, but it was not bad. The info card describes it as PB&J, but better. Whole raspberries, hemp seeds and plant-based protein provide fuel for whatever activity you've got planned.
A mix if organic seeds and sprouted buckwheat adds quality carbs, protein and essential fatty acids to meals and snacks.
Indulge Gourmet Kettle Corn
This popcorn is both salty and sweet, sprinkled with pure cane sugar and natural sea salt. I enjoy more salty snacks, but the sweetness of this popcorn wasn't overwhelming, so I liked it.
Three Farmers Barbecue Roaster Chickpeas
Sweet, smoky and addictive. These chickpeas are roasted with camelina oil and pack protein, fibre and serious crunch.
Alter Eco Dark Cacao Organic Chocolate
I love dark chocolate and this one is not only intensely chocolatey, but it's got crunchy nibs in it. So good!
Munch Better Banana Chocolate Power Cereal
This was created for Munch Better at uraaw.ca. It has a blend of buckwheat groats, oats, raisins, banana chips, flax, coconut, and chocolate chips.
Crio Brü Cavalla Brewed Cocoa
Each month Munch Better includes a feature product and this month it's Crio Brü. It's made from 100% roasted cacao beans for a boost of antioxidants and minerals, including magnesium. It also delivers jitter-free energy (thanks, theobromine!) and tastes wonderfully complex with notes of coconut and cinnamon. Munch Better includes instructions on how to properly brew the Crio Brü which I really appreciate! I'm looking forward to giving this s try!
February's Munch Better has an estimated value of $20.86. I thought it was a good box with some great, health snacks, but I am disappointed with the value. At $28/month, it's a more expensive box as it is, so I expect to get my money's worth and this box falls short. I'm not sure if Munch Better always has low value boxes, but I would like to see more products and a better value. However, I like that a box like this is on the market, especially for those who are vegan and/or eat gluten-free products.
