Food boxes are essential in our house.  As you can read in my recent rant, I have had some hard time with Ghanaian food. But more noticeable in the last couple of weeks is the additional problems I am having with snack foods. Here in Ghana there are a lot of good grocery stores and we have the embassy commissary, but I still struggle finding healthy gluten free items.

UrthBox describes itself as the best way to discover healthy new foods, beverages, snacks and more for your home, the office or on-the-go every month. With a model similar to Birch Box, members log in after they receive their box and rate and review the products for points.  The reviews allow UrthBox to send more of what you love at member discounts and you can earn loyalty points for every purchase, redeemable at the UrthBox Shop.

So let's take a look at what we got. We asked for the gluten free box and got a great mix of items.  You cans see two different types of bars and cookies, below there are banana chips, pistachio banana chips and icebox water.  We LOVED the pistachio banana chips and I especially liked them because they didn't include any rice products either.

You can see there was also a lot of diversity in the box.  The You Love Fruit item was like a fruit roll up and didn't last long between Andrew and I inhaling them. Also included were these drink fruit additives. The treats from Gorilly Goods were also super great and filling.

The quality of the products overall was incredibly impressive.  UrthBox offers 4 size boxes Mini ($12.99), Small ($19.99 and 12+ snacks), Medium ($29.99 and 17+ snacks) and Large ($39.99 and 24+ snacks).  Much like other boxes they offer annual subscriptions that reduce the monthly rate. They also now offer APO shipping!

Overall, I give Urthbox a 9 on quality, 8 on cost, 8 on appropriate for the family (lots of good snacks for the adults but not great kids diversity) and 7 on fun.
