I’ve always loved — and highly recommended — NatureBox snacks, with their natural ingredients and wide variety. But I’m sure kids don’t want to take a grown-up‘s word for it. After all, I like olives! And anchovies! And stinky cheese! So, we asked six-year-old Toby and three-year-old Anton to sit down and give their honest reviews of NatureBox’s offerings…
Toby, who has his birthday front of mind (side note: it’s four months away), thought the Mini Belgian Waffles were a standout. “These are yummy,” he exclaimed. “Let’s definitely take these to my birthday party.” Anton’s dreamy take? “Pretend that I have a big giant dog that is a robot that I ride,” he said.
And on they snacked! Bite after bite, they gave their reviews:
Dried California Peaches
Toby: They’re sweet and good.
Anton: These are super super sweet. I need three peaches because I’m three.
Sweet and Salty Nut Medley
Toby: Yummy. I like the flavor. I’d like them in my school lunch.
Anton: [Thumbs up sign.]
Whole Wheat Strawberry Figgy Bars
Toby: Thumbs up.
Anton: The big robot is still a little hungry.
Blueberry Greek Yogurt Pretzels
Toby: These are G-O-O-O-D. Super good. They taste like blueberries. They’re my favorite.
Anton: If you give me two pretzels, I’ll turn my robot dog off.
Crantastic Cranberry Medley
Toby: They smell good. They taste super good. I want to eat them on a plane.
Anton: They are good.
Garlic Bread Cheese Crisps
Toby: They taste like cheese.
Anton: But you don’t like cheese that is not melted!!!
Toby: I like these. They’re crunchy. I would like to eat them on a plane.
Sea Salt Chickpeas
Toby: More please. Let’s take them to my birthday party, too.
Anton: Z-O. No.
The snacks were a huge hit (other than the chickpeas for Anton). NatureBox has more than 100 delicious flavors to choose from. They’re made without artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners — so they’re perfect for lunch boxes and playdates and everyday snacking. And Alex and I enjoy them just as much. (A few of my personal favorites are their Dark Chocolate Almonds, Salt & Vinegar Veggie Chips and Asiago & Cheddar Cheese Crisps.)
