Healthy Surprise Review and Giveaway!

Last July, the wonderful Tara had a review on her site for a company called Healthy Surprise. We’re big snackers around these parts so I was definitely intrigued by the idea of good snacks (that I didn’t have to make myself because a cook/baker I am not) showing up on our doorstep every month.

I searched the Healthy Surprise website, decided on a box, used the discount code Tara offered, and I’m happy to say that we have been loyal customers ever since.

Seriously. The kids cheer when box shows up on the porch.

So, I thought why not do a photo review of Healthy Surprise? And you all would say “Great idea, Thea!” and I would say “I KNOW!!”


Healthy Surprise offers three size options: Starter Box (16-20 servings for 1-2 people), Healthy Box (32-40 servings for 1-4 people), and Large Box (50-60 servings for 2-6 people). All the snacks are vegan and gluten free. There have been a few misses that we have received (we all discovered that we don’t like seaweed snacks or nori snacks), but overall we’ve been really happy with the products that we have received.

We subscribe to the Healthy Box. Once a month, this little beauty shows up on our doorstep:

I already see some of our favorites in there. Olomomo Nut Co. Righteous Cinnamon Cayenne Almonds (excellent in my morning oatmeal)…Happy Hemp Raw Hemp Seed (also a great addition to my morning oatmeal)…and a few new things that I’m anxious to try out…

This is everything we got this month…well almost everything. There was a Maca Bar that never made it to the picture. Honestly, that little bar never stood a chance.

The box has a perforated lid, so we just tear off the lid, stand the stuff upright, and then it sits in the middle of the counter for a month (more or less). It makes it a lot easier to reach for something that is a good snack option.

O.K. I’m done now. You can start going through the box…

    Right now my go to snack is pretzel chips and spicy red pepper hummus or almonds. Although I end up eating more than I should.🙂

  6. Nuts and/or dried fruit are some of my favorite snacks.

  7. Tweeted!

  8. Pistachios, but given their prohibitive cost and the fact that I just can’t stop until the bag is gone, buying them is a rare occasion. So, I buy lots of those dehydrated fruit things for the kids and usually grab that. They are surprisingly filling and the crunch helps me feel like I’m being decadent🙂.

  9. Salted Almonds ! God I love them !

  10. pop chips…salty with a crunch!

  11. Alinda there’s my link. Hope indis it right🙂 I love spicy red pepper hummus and almonds. Plain almonds and lime n chili almonds
