I didn’t get a chance to try this, my husband was right into it, he loved it, he is a big cinnamon fan!

Original Tortatos

RW Garcia Original Tortatos 

Made with corn and Red Potatoes, love these, i’m sure I have tried these before, they go great with salsa and nacho cheese!

Wai Lana Chips

Wai Lana Chips Thai Curry and Lime 

WOW!  How did Urthbox know that i love Thai food, Indian food and anything with the word curry in it?  These are like little prawn crackers and taste like curry, I will totally be buying these in the future!

Macaroons

Hail Merry Macaroons

Love! Love! Love!  Who doesn’t like all natural ingredients with chocolate and coconut?  These are amazing!

rescue pearls

Bach Rescue Pearls – Natural Stress Relief Capsules

These work!  They really work!  It’s always stressful when you have kids, I took one of these after the kids went to bed and felt a bit more “mellow” about 30 minutes later.

caveman cookies

Caveman Cookies Original – Love cookies! Make them all natural, even better!  These will be a great snack to have in the car especially for Dylan!

la tortilla factoryLa Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortillas

Low Carb and healthy, I will use these next time we have a Tortilla night!

fruit strip

SunRype 100% Fruit Strip

I love fruit strips and my son loves fruit strips, this had lots of flavor!  Fruit strips are also a good alternative to fruit, especially for young kids like my son who won’t eat real fruit.

roots

Roots

When i saw these I had no idea what to do with them!  I looked it up on there website and I am guessing they are for flavoring water, pour the powder in and stir!

curry crunch

Zouq Curry Crunch Sweet & Sour Trail Mix

Love curry, these are like a “pub mix”, great to snack on!

irange pearls

 

NewTree Orange Pearls

These are sort of jello-ish and covered in belgian chocolate!  Chocolate and Orange is one of my favorite chocolate blends!

unrel

Unreal Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Bar

Okay, so I am a complete chocolate freak.  These taste just like Snickers!  Except they are alot more healthy and less fattening, thinking i may just have to switch to these!  My favorite product in the whole box!

dates

Natural Delights Medjool Dates

Me and dates are a no no, I can’t comment on these because I really just don’t like dates!  I will pass these on to someone!

The Verdict

I am super impressed by the curation, mixture of products and the number of products included in Urthbox!

I like that they have box options for people with different preferences such as vegan and Gluten Free.  I think Urthbox is a great way to find out about new products, some of which I had no diea existed, caveman cookies?  Awesome!

    This company has the worst customer service ever.

    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.

    This is a terrible company with terrible standards, they will not last long.

      Ah that is horrible! If you change your address on there website and they haven’t stated to do it elsewhere then they should either reship your boxes to you you or not even show a change of address form, I hope you get it fixed!
