Urthbox Review- A Healthy You!



Happy President’s Day, and hope you had a great Monday! I am always on the look out for good healthy food and lifestyle products, and when I found Urthbox I knew I found a subscription that I knew I had to find out more about. When Urthbox graciously offered to send me a box to sample I, of course, took them up on their offer to try out their new subscription.


What is Urthbox?
Urthbox, Discover a Healthier You. This  is a new subscription that allows you to try out the healthy new foods, beverages, snacks and more for your home, the office or on-the-go every month. You first pick what Urthbox you would like to try first: Gluten Free, Classic, Vegan or Diet.  Each box costs $25 per month. And each month you will get to enjoy 12-15 brand new full sized foods, snacks, beverages or lifestyle products each month, up to $50 value. 


January Urthbox
Classic Box

I am a little late reviewing this box, but I did not get this until February. However, by no means was it Urthbox's fault. USPS said that the box had to be signed for, so they did not leave it at the door. Then, I did not get a notice that they attempted to deliver, so I did not know until a couple weeks later that it was waiting at the post office. Needless to say I finally received it, and it was still very delightful and everything was still good to eat!

Next by Nature Chocolate Cashews
Okay, so even when you are trying to eat healthy you need to eat something to cure that sweet tooth. These chocolate cashews are so yummy. Seriously, I could have ate them all on my own. But since I do not need them all, I shared. 

Tasty Bite Indian Cuisine
I am not really into Indian food, curry or anything like that. But, my family members like more spice driven food like this. And, it is a healthy and quick version so I know they will really like it. When I say quick I mean quick, 1-minute meal! Perfect!

Annie Chun’s White Sticky Rice
I know I am Asian, and it is stereotypical that all asian’s eat rice. I am just not too into rice. It is very tasty, especially in Sushi, but it just is not in my diet. However, A will love this fast rice dish. 


Justin’s Classic Almond Butter
Yummy! I really am quite the almond, peanut, cashew butter lover. This was perfect for me, and perfect to take on the go to work. 

Inka Giant Corn in Salt and Vinegar
Well these were just delish. We opened these right up and started grubbing, as I am sure you can see by the picture since the bag is open. I usually do not like corn nuts, but these were so good. And, they were huge. Seriously, they were quadruple the size of regular corn nuts. 


Wow Baking Company Oregon Oatmeal Cookie
A’s favorite kind of cookies are oatmeal cookies, so you know who got to enjoy this one. I try my hardest to stay away from sweets, so it was my pleasure to let him try this yummy looking cookie out. i already know they are yummy, because they felt super soft, and a soft cookie is always a yummy one.

Annie’s Organic Horseradish Mustard
It is so interesting that when I was younger I really disliked mustard, but now i could eat it all the time. I was excited to try this mustard out. Great addition to January’s Urthbox.

Dang Toasted Coconut Chips
These are quite popular in my house, and they are just the tastiest. I have received these in other boxes, so I was excited to see them in January’s Urthbox. I would grab these over chips any day. Very good!


NEO Organic Energy and Electrolytes
Finding a healthier energy drink has been very big on my To-Do’s lists. I have been trying my hardest to stay away from energy drinks and coffee, so this may be a good substitute. 


EXTRA- Reed’s Ginger Chews
A little sweet with spice. I have grown up with my whole family loving ginger candies of all sorts, but I just do not like it. I cannot get over at how spicy it is at times. I know these will not go without someone enjoying the tasty treat.

TICKLED PINK OPINION
I did not do a price break down of this box, but I think the box seems to be definitely worth every penny, especially with the convenience of brining healthy alternatives for snacks right to my door. From my experience I know that it is hard with everything else: work, family, and everything, plus trying to add in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and eating right, well, it just gets a little hectic. I really like everything about Urthbox, and cannot wait to experience the other boxes that Urthbox offers. What I Also think is extra great about Urthbox is not only in the information card does it tell you more about each product, but it also tells you where you can get the product. For example, now I know I can get those yummy chocolate cashews at my local Fred Meyer. Definetly a great addition to the information card! Eating right and staying healthier is getting just a little bit easier with the help of Urthbox!

Until next time…
Stay Tickled Pink,

  1. 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.
