Formed in 2012 The Nutribox company provides a healthy alternative to the normally un-healthy and guilt ridden mid-morning snack. The concept is a simple one, once a month (or as often as want) you receive a box – packed inside you’ll find an interesting assortment of health orientated treats perfect for when you’ve got the mid-morning munches.
There are three different types of boxes you can choose from; The Vegan, The Original and the one i’m reviewing The Sports Nutrition and two different sizes containing at least 9 or 18 portions. The Sports Nutrition box is designed for people who train hard and watch their diet. The snacks are chosen to provide high energy for post training glycogen replacement and high protein to meet muscle growth and repair needs.
What I enjoy about these boxes is that the majority of the contents are not products I’ve seen before, the Bounce Almond Protein ball was a particular favourite so was the bright green coloured Bounce Spirulina & Ginseng Defence Boost. Very seasonal was the Rude Health – The Pumpkin bar which combined pumpkin and apple with almonds and pumpkin seeds and a hint of spice from cinnamon and ginger.
Other items were a tasty & delicious Trek Coconut bar, fruit & nut mixes, a moreish flapjack and my favourite a rich (but healthy) Beond organic raw chocolate bar. The quality of the products I couldn’t fault and with prices starting from £12.95 including postage represents decent value for money.
Each month thought and attention is put into the contents with seasonal products included where possible, the variety certainly is interesting and it has definitely helped me cut down on my trips to the office vending machine as well as help contribute to my protein intake after a heavy weights session.
Sure not all the products are going to be winners (though none have been duds either) but for me these were few and far between but that’s the chance you take on discovering something new that you love that you would have probably never come across otherwise. Anything that can add a bit of excitement to a Monday mid-morning hunger pain when the only alternatives are crisps or a chocolate bar is very much welcome!
