Can you believe we are already HALFWAY through June? Ughh I feel like summer has barely even begun, thanks to the less-than-desirable weather lately. Hopefully, this just means a later start to winter this year and no snow until mid-December. One can only hope!
Nature Box – June
Although I received my June box at nearly 2 weeks ago, I have been so crazy busy and just haven’t had the opportunity to taste-test all my monthly goodies.
Too busy to eat? Never thought that was possible. 😉
But I finally opened up all the bags and dug in!
If you’ve never heard of Nature Box before, it’s a subscription service that sends 5 different healthy snacks at the beginning of every month.
This June box is my 3rd one and I’ve been enjoying sampling unique health(ier) snacks without having to buy a ginormous bag! Just the right amount to satisfy a snacky mood. 🙂
The company sends a card detailing each item and offers suggestions of how to enjoy your snacks. The theme for June is “Picnic Season”.
Cherry Ganache Granola
This was my breakfast this morning. A yogurt bowl with all kinds of goodies – blueberries & bananas (on the bottom), Greek yogurt, sunflower butter, and the Cherry Ganache Granola. It was very tasty with the big plump dried cherries and whole roasted almonds mixed in with the crunchy granola clusters.
Peanut Butter Nom Noms
These are soft little cookies made with oats and peanut butter with chocolate chunks. It tasted like an oatmeal raisin cookie (minus the raisins) as the base but with a hint of peanut butter and giant melty chunks of chocolate. Delish!
Salsa Spiced Nut Mix
Just a hint of zesty flavor coating a cashews and almonds, plus a crunchy corn-type chip.
BBQ Kettle Kernels
Love these things! I believe they are the similar to the roasted kettle kernels (but with a BBQ spin on ’em) from April’s box which I adored! They remind me of those half-popped popcorn kernels at the bottom of the bowl. 🙂
And of course, Mr. Mac had to photobomb my picture!
These were good, but not my favorite. They tasted like your typical corn chip (aka Frito, etc.) but with a tangy flavoring. I mean, they were definitely yummy but I’m not the biggest fan of Frito-type snacks and I was hoping for more of a ‘guacamole’ emphasis.
Have a fabulous weekend!
