I received a nibblr snack box for review. No other incentive was provided and opinions are my own.
nibblr is a new subscription snack service that delivers crave-worthy snacks to your home or office.
I am a snacker. Mere hours after finishing most meals I can be found picking at the leftovers. Only fueling my snacking ways is a health issue that requires me to do a good amount of eating, and to do it on a pretty frequent schedule. This translates into meals plus snacking, and maybe some more snacking, and oh yeah, don’t forget to pencil in snacking.
If you’re a person who loves to snack, or a person who has to snack, it’s important to remember that what we choose to snack on makes all the difference. That is precisely why nibblr piqued my interest.
nibblr delivers four portion-controlled snacks that are more or less healthy, packaged in individually sealed trays that make it easy and convenient to bring along wherever you go. The packaging, the individual trays, and the thought that went into these boxes on both an aesthetic and practical level is a major home run. The packaging is cute and the top of the box seems to always be a design of some sort made out in fruits and nuts. The individual trays inside are packaged well and contain full nutritional information as well as an expiration date.
I feel compelled to mention the inclusion of an expiration date. Usually when you buy trail mix and other similar snack items, like I so frequently do, you’ll see expiration dates that span several months, or even a year ahead. It kind of gives you the idea that it might outlive you. With nibblr, each snack had a late February expiration date, which made me feel good about setting my nibblr box on my desk to snack on whenever I needed to while I worked.
And snack I did.
The Sesa-Me & You snack mix was easily my favorite snack in the whole box. I could have easily eaten five trays of them. I didn’t think I was going to like them, though. The sesame seeds kind of threw me off at first, but I am so glad I tried them because they were gone moments after opening the tray.
Ingredients: almonds, sugar, sesame seeds, water, honey, margarine, salt
I knew I would love the Olde World Blend as soon as I saw the huge date pieces and red walnuts, and I was right. You can totally win me over with walnuts. I can’t get enough of them, and was really digging this blend.
Ingredients: date pieces (dates, dextrose), mission figs, red walnuts
The Caramel Apple snack mix was another that I knew I would love. You can’t go wrong with caramel, or with apples; never mind when they are mixed together.
Ingredients: caramel pieces, peanuts (peanut, peanut oil, salt), apples
Like the Sesa-Me & You mix, I didn’t think I was going to like the Olive You mini crisps. Not only did I think I wasn’t going to like them, but I was kind of afraid to try them. When I did, I was pleasantly surprised, but not totally wowed.
Olives are great sometimes, but not something I really crave when I want a snack. Including the olives, the Olive You mini crisps contain pumpkin seeds and dates, both of which I really like. The pumpkin flavor is pleasing and very apparent, but the olive undertones were a little too much for me. They were alright, but I did rate them as “no thanks” on the nibblr website so I do not receive them again in a future box.
Ingredients: enriched wheat flour, cultured buttermilk, brown sugar, pumpkin seeds, dates (dextrose), Kalamata olives, water, sodium bicarbonate, salt, canola and/or soybean oil, natural olive flavor, spices, tocopherols
Each nibblr snack could contain gluten, dairy, and nuts, and they do not currently offer snacks for those with specific food allergies.
You don’t get to choose the snacks you receive, but like I mentioned, you can rate snacks. nibblr has a page on their website dedicated to their 55 snack combinations that are available and could appear in a nibblr box. All of the snacks are automatically rated as “interested” when you start your subscription, but you can rate the snacks as you receive and try them so that nibblr can customize your future boxes with only snacks you are interested in trying.
Aside from the ability to rate snacks, what makes nibblr a little more unique than most other subscription box services is that you can choose whether you would like to receive your box at home or at the office (who works in an office and is always kicking themselves for not having more quick and healthy snacks at their side?) You can also choose how frequently you would like to receive your box, either weekly, every other week, or monthly.
Each nibblr box is $5.99, including shipping to anywhere in the United States. You can save on subscription boxes if you pre-order a 4-box subscription at $5.75 per box, or a 12-box subscription at $5.50 per box.
I really enjoyed my first nibblr box, and I’m really interested in seeing what other snacks I’ll have the opportunity to try in the future. I’ll have a couple more nibblr snack box reviews for you in the coming months.
