Snack Smarter with Snack Break Subscription Box

Oh, the snack. A staple in most of our everyday lives. If you're like me, you aren't much of a breakfast eater (even though you know you should) and will skip lunch to get work done (again, you know you shouldn't.) Before you know it, it's 3 pm and all you've eaten was two clementines and a cup of tea. I know, it's not the best, because it can turn you into a ravenous angry-pants, and nobody wants to deal with that. Plus, you're more likely to eat things you shouldn't in quantities you shouldn't and then feel slightly terrible about it. There is an easy solution to this cycle- Snack Break. But What is it? Read on and find out.

Snack Break is an ingenious Canadian based subscription service that sends you a monthly box of snacks. Um, yes please! Not only are they snacks, which already has you interested, but they're good for you snacks. Smarter snacks. Snack Break has rules about the snack they offer and don't mess with anything you'd feel guilty about scarfing down. All of their snacks meet one or more of the following criteria: organic, gluten-free, non GMO, raw, source of fibre, and vegan. They also offer a fully gluten-free selection upon request.

I was able to sample the Personal size box, which includes 9-12 snacks each month. I was really impressed with the selection I was sent, and found that everything was not only really tasty, but also really great for beating the mid-day, hunger induced slump. I loved that most of the snacks featured high protein and fibre stats, meaning they were more than just empty calories. They made for a more substantial, filling snack.

As mentioned, I sampled the personal size box, but they also offer Medium with 15-18 snacks ($45), Team with 35-40 snacks ($99) and custom and one time boxes for office meetings and groups. The prices might sound a little high, I admit, but shipping is included, and the type of snacks they offer can sell for $3-$5 each. You're not only saving the time and energy of having to shop for them yourself, but you're saving a little coin too. Plus, you're not stuck buying a whole case of something and being stuck with it for the month. They ship boxes anywhere- home or office- which means you can snack smarter wherever and whenever.

I think Snack Break is a great idea! There are a few snack subscription services, but few that ship to Canada. Those that do, get pricey quite quickly, as my Canadian friends know, the exchange rate is rarely on our side. As such, Snack Break only ships within Canada at this time. If you're interested in trying Snack Break for yourself, use code iknowallthesnacks (lower case) to save $5 on any order this February.What do you think? Could you use this sort of service at work or home?
