So today I'm finally going to share the Nutribox Mini - June box* from thenutribox.com with you. I say finally because I've had it for a couple of weeks and I've finally managed to eat my way through everything!
Nutribox is a monthly subscription box company, from the UK launched in November 2012. It's aim is to make healthy eating enjoyable and easier with these delicious monthly boxes containing gluten-free snacks!

The boxes vary each month, containing a mixture of fruit and nut mixes, snack bars, savoury snacks and treats, they are all gluten-free and they even offer the option of a Vegan box!
I received the Nutribox Mini, a letterbox friendly sized box containing 10 snacks!
Here's the first look and what I received:
Pulsin' Energy Bomb: Banana Crisp, 50g - Vegetarian - Gluten free - A dense, crispy natural energy bar made with dried banana, guarana and ginseng. Best eaten 30 minutes before exercise.

I am pretty open to trying new things and don't mind gluten/dairy free or vegan products so this was a great treat for me!
My favourites from this box would have to be the Pulsin' Banana Crisp bar, it tasted delicious, soft with a slight crunch from the dried bananas. I felt it kept my energy and concentration levels up during exercise;
Frank Blueberry Bar, I love blueberries and chocolate so this had to be a winner. The texture was soft with a chocolate topping. I'd definitely have again;
I also loved the Ludlow Nut Co bags, I had these on top of my porridge for breakfast, it made breakfast far less dull as I didn't have any fruit. Yum yum!
I wasn't so keen on the Nakd Ginger Bread Bar. To me it tasted far too much of clove and not enough of ginger. Perhaps it was just my taste buds. The texture however was delightful!
Overall, I am super happy with this snack box, it's crammed full, I mean you couldn't fit another snack! The snacks themselves are all great portion sizes, perfect to have with luch or a midafternoon snack without feeling naughty and they're all good for you!
I definitely recommend if you have any specific dietary requirements or even if you just want to try something new!
