Hey fellow subscription box junkies, today I thought I would do a review of my (rather late) July Urthbox! In this box I received 7 different full sized snacks for sampling; Amazing Grass Watermelon Energy Green Superfood, Natures Bakery Double Chocolate Brownie, Watusee Foods Organic Rosemary Chickpeatos, Unique Pretzel Bakery Pretzel Shells, Manitoba Harvest Apple Cinnamon Hemp Heart Bar, Popcorners Kettle Chips, Inner J Maple Crunchy Snack Bar.
Amazing Grass Watermelon Energy Green Superfood
Amazing Grass Green Superfood powders come in 14 flavours, are sweetened with spirulina and contain a daily dose of vitamins and minerals, the flavour I am reviewing today is Watermelon Energy.
The first thing I did when I opened this month's UrthBox was reach for this cute little packet to read the ingredients list. I couldn't wait to try it after discovering that Matcha was one of the key ingredients! Unfortunately, my excitement ended the moment I poured the powder into a cup. The dark green powder had a sickly sweet odour that only got worse upon combining it with water. I used the recommended 8oz of liquid but could not get down more than a few sips. It tasted like I was drinking one of those Fruit To Go snacks. I give this product 2/5 stars because I hold out hope that it is better when mixed with other beverages.
Natures Bakery Double Chocolate Brownie
The second item I receiver in my box was this packet of Natures Bakery Brownies. The single packet contained two 90 calorie brownies. They had a rather pleasing texture and a very strong date flavour. They are a healthy (and cruelty free!) alternative to Bear Paw brownies. Overall I give this product 3.5/5 stars. I would recommend these to any parent raising a vegan child, they make perfect lunchbox snacks!
Watusee Foods Rosemary Chickpeatos
The third item I received were these "Chickpeatos" from Watusee Foods. Mine came in the flavour Rosemary but they are also sold in Chickpea Breadcrumbs, Cinnamon Toast, Spicy Cayenne and Tomato Basil. Right away upon opening these I was overwhelmed with a strong Rosemary scent, but was disappointed to find that the snack itself carried little flavour. They have the same type of consistency as pretzels but I found that they were way too dry and left me with a severe case of cottonmouth. You have been warned! 3/5 stars.
Unique Pretzel Bakery Pretzel Shells
Speaking of pretzels, the third item I received were these Unique Pretzel Bakery Pretzel Shells. They are just like regular pretzels but hollow on the inside. They are salty, simple and delicious. 5/5 stars.
Manitoba Harvest Apple Cinnamon Hemp Heart Bar
This bar was a lot chewier than I expected. I was expecting a bit more of a grainy crunch. There isn't an overwhelming apple cinnamon flavour or much going on at all to be honest. I suppose these would also be a good lunchbox snack, as each bar is full of protein and omegas, but I just did not enjoy it that much. 2/5 stars.
Popcorners Kettle Popped Corn Chips
From the looks of these chips I did not think I was going to enjoy them but man, was I wrong! These popped corn chips were sweet rather than salty and left a corny aftertaste and I ate them all in a matter of minutes. 5/5 stars!
Inner J Maple Crunchy Snack Bar
The last item in my July UrthBox was this Maple snack bar. I'm not usually all that big on maple flavoured foods but I really enjoyed this one! It was sweet, crunchy and completely delicious. It contained hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, pea protein crisps, and brown rice, as well as a variety of natural proteins and spices. I give this bar 4/5 stars.
That's it for my July UrthBox review, overall this box gets a 3/5! Save $10 on your August UrthBox purchase by clicking here!
