The last Snackbox by Foodee was curated by Erin Ireland containing only local products. This box came with 12 different products.
What I love about the Snackbox is how they open your palate to different snack options if you are looking for healthier snack options. Healthy snack doesn’t have to be bland and flavourless, there are tons of options in your local grocery store.

When the box arrived on my desk at work, I was pretty excited. You really never know what you’re going to get.
Fresh is Best Tortilla Chips are pretty awesome. When my coworker saw it in the box, he raved about how good it was. The chips were quite fresh and had the perfect crunch when I bit into them.
Urge Chocolates came in a plain packaging, but don’t be fooled. It was pretty darn tasty. The people in my office went nuts over this product and finished it up so fast.
Skeet & Ikes Trail Mix is organic and isn’t salted. I’ve always found it hard to find nuts or trail mixes that don’t have salt. This product is simple but quite delicious.
Rumble Energy Drink tasted pretty bad. Even though it was dutch cocoa flavoured, it tasted very watery and bland.
Hippie Snacks has their coconut chips in the snackbox again. There are the best coconut chips I’ve had. They are thin, crispy and taste natural.
Powerplant Fruit Bars was covered with delicious chocolate. For those picky eaters out there, this product is raw, organic, vegan, gluten-free, and peanut free. These bars are made in Kelowna.
Hardbite Chips are my favorite chips! They are kettle cooked and have an amazing crunch to them. I love very crunchy chips. I still prefer their original flavour.
OrganicLives Chocolate Macaroons comes with 3 in the box. It was very good! A mix of coconut and chocolate.
Granola Girl had a small sample. It went well with some soy or almond milk. I wish I had a little bit more of this sample since it didn’t even fill a small bowl.
Salted Caramel Peanut butter by Monkey Butter. I’ve seen them a lot at food conventions and they always have crazy flavour combinations. The salted caramel peanut butter tasted ok, but I much prefer their chocolate flavour.
Kitchening & Co had their Ginger Chocolate Cookies in the box. My coworker described the taste of this cookies as thinking out of the box. While the taste was complex he was able to distinguish the cinnamon, chocolate and ginger taste. The texture was not your ordinary cookie which made it even more interesting and delicious. The chocolate chunks were a joy to savior as they were proof of authentic chocolate in the cookie.
Overall, I still enjoyed the Snackbox! Every month, it is an adventure to see whats inside. Since I don’t really actively search for products, it good that some of the best organic and gluten free products are inside to test out. Even though the products are natural or organic, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are 100% healthy.
