MONTHLY BOX OF FOOD AND SNACK February 2019 - Box Review Top

Monthly Box of Food and Snacks is a new monthly snack box from thatdailydeal.com:

Get an assortment of delicious, brand name snacks and food delivered to straight to your doorstep every month for one low price! Almost everything you receive will be full sized items with well know brand names. Includes a variety of snacks from granola bars, chips, cereals, etc. A lot will even be organic! Please note, this box is an insanely good deal, so some best by dates could be just passed or about to pass or they could even have a year left on them. If you are a frugal shopper you understand that best by dates are arbitrary and the packaged foods we will be sending are perfectly fine after the best by dates. Items that could potentially melt will only be included in the cooler months. You may receive multiples of some items, but we will always send a good variety each month.

Some things to consider: Have a big family to feed? Feel free to order multiples, but keep in mind that it might result in doubling up on the exact same products or you could get completely different products. It will vary from month to month. Received something you aren’t interested in? Give back to your community by donating the unwanted items. Have someone you want to send a care package to like a student in college or a grandparent? Let us do the work for you by shipping this box directly to them!

Our February 2019 Review

MONTHLY BOX OF FOOD AND SNACK February 2019 - Info Card Front

I thought this was pretty cool to receive in the box: a recipe card. We received a lot of Hershey’s Gold bars in this month’s box and just enough to make this recipe (assuming 24 gold bars are individual pieces). It would be cool to get more recipe cards in future boxes.

I am excited to get granola in my snack box; its perfect for toppings on my morning yogurt. I’ve not yet opened this box as I still have some left, but I will get into it soon. I definitely won’t eat a whole serving, either, it is pretty high in calories and carbs, but a little won’t hurt. I also love that this box sends a lot of organic snacks.

Chewy bars are a hit with my kids, they make such a great after school snack! These are the perfect size, peanut butter flavor with tiny little marshmallows within. They were also gone in a flash, so I definitely see us buying more in the future!

Right away I thought how pretty this packaging is, it’s a real eye catcher! Its also has a good amount of protein and low sugar which is always appreciated in a snack. When I opened it, I immediately was hit with a citrus scent. When I bit into it, I was so overwhelmed with the orange flavor, it was just too much for me. My family felt the same. This is just not a snack for us. Off to the employee snack room, these go!

We got so many of these! I have never tried this particular kind of Hershey’s candy, and honestly, have never had the urge to try them, so biting into it I was a little nervous. It really wasn’t that yummy or appealing to me, it tasted like salted peanut butter, and a lot like the peanut butter in a Reese’s. But, like with most snacks and pretty much all candies, this is a hit with the kids.

Is it Easter already?! I know it isn’t far and also know these are a timeless favorite for a lot of people, and the Easter bunny when he packs his baskets. We get a lot of Reese’s candies or snacks with this subscription, or at least my household box does. I am not sure if I mentioned it previously, but I really burnt myself out of Reese’s after eating it so much during my second pregnancy. It is weird that this was once such a beloved snack and now I hate the thought of them, especially since I am getting so much of them! I will be saving these, though, for Easter treats for baskets I will pack for the kids teachers. I received just the right amount!

Jalapeno Lime Tortilla Chips (3), 1 oz – Buy a 2.5 oz Bag for $1.69

130 Calories │ 7g Fat│ 17g Carbs │ 2g Protein – Expires March 2, 2019

Chips are always an easy after school snack or an addition to lunch pails. When I opened these to try them, they smelled pretty good! The taste reminded me of the Cool Ranch Doritos and really didn’t pack a jalapeno punch. My husband also took a bag to work and said his were stale. I didn’t think mine were, but it may just be the way the chip is made since they are organic. I don’t know if we will get these again, though, but they were a good inclusion.

I was hoping since the jalapeno chips weren’t spicy that these would be since they are habanero and was totally curious to the flavor. As soon as I tasted them, I was hit with a BBQ chip flavor. There was some spice, but not much. Like the others, not a snack I would get again, but I am happy I was able to try these out.

I won’t lie, I wasn’t excited about this snack. I am not a fan or pretzel crisps and really think the pretzel should be left alone, nice and fluffy. These are a great snack for my husband though, so I will leave these to him. These are the kind of snacks whose calories will sneak up on you, though, since the above info is per every 10 crackers, so snack smart!

I have never seen these before and, as a lover of Cheese Its, was really excited to try them. The picture of them on the front of the packaging made them even more appealing – they look like real cheese! They did not disappoint! They are full of intense flavor and pairs well with the beef sticks we got (see below).

I love, love, love rice crispy bars and used to mix them with my chocolate pudding cups as a kid at lunch. I have never tried Annie’s organic bars before but they were pretty good. Not as sweet as a rice crispy bar but just as delicious.

Food can be intimidating. Beef jerky, a snack I love and cherish for its delicious beefy flavor, is so good on its own. But jerky, with wild blueberry and quinoa? Intimidating. But I went in with an open mind and tried this. First a few nibbles then a bite. It wasn’t that bad, but it has a flavor I cannot place. The blueberry isn’t pronounced (which I am grateful for) but it’s not exactly meaty. I would probably try this again if I crave a healthy snack and if beef jerky isn’t available.

As soon as this was unboxed both my husband and my son wanted to try them. They were pretty good and definitely delivered on the jalapeno flavor but were lacking a cheesy flavor. The entire bag is gone now so it was a win in our home. Unfortunately, I was unable to find these online.

I got these in my December box and was happy to get them again. They are a great quick snack with a good amount of protein. I also love how the box serves as a little holder for them so they stand in the pantry.

Verdict: Monthly Box of Food and Snack, or Snack With Me, is a loved subscription in my home. As soon as the kids come home from school, their first words are “What’s for dinner. I need a snack!” My husband also stocks up on snacks for the work day and I grab one as I am leaving in the morning for my long commute. This box is perfect for us since we are all big snackers. My favorite thing about this month were all the bars we got, Chewy Bars, the beef sticks, Crispy Rice bars and individual bags of chips. The best snack in the whole box is tied with the Chewy Bars and the Smoked Gouda.

  1. I get too freaked out by foods past their best by date. I know for many of the items it really is not a big deal I just have a mental block about it. But I will say I do like the variety and quantity you get with this box.

  2. This is one of the only subs I can actually financially justify. It’s fun to get the variety each month, but it actually makes sense money wise for our family. I so often stop by the gas station to grab a snack (I know I should just stock up at the store, but I don’t) and stuff has gotten SO expensive there.

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of expired items.

  4. I think you can find those Friday’s Jalapeno poppers at the Dollar Tree.

  5. The Reese’s eggs have to be from last Easter if they are expired 2018.

    • Sorry I meant if they expired January 2019 they would be from Easter 2018.

  6. I’m questioning the decision to put expired chocolates in a gift for others?

    • Honestly I felt the same way reading this I got the same box (technically this is my January box, paid for in december) and it just arrived last week. My eggs have the same expiration and opening them they definitely have that white film chocolate gets as it sits around (still safe to eat but not pleasant on the eyes)BUT because of the peanuts I would never gift these. Nuts are not something I feel should be eating post expiration date….

    • 😱😳 I was looking at the wrong expiration date when I wrote the last comment. Needless to say the candies are long gone and consumed and are and WILL NOT be gifted!

  7. This looks like a fantastic gift idea to send to a college kid! The kids have tons of stuff, but food is always welcome, and this great variety is definitely a draw. This prices better than the standard boxes meant for college kids, and everything will be consumed by them and their buddies.

  8. Is this box something that needs to be purchased when you want, or will it come monthly?

    • It comes monthly. But I think you can do a one time box and just cancel.

  9. I got the exact same box. But my pretzels were open all over the box. And the chips were all crushed. I was so sad. Cause I love this box. The krave bar was my favorite.

  10. Love the idea as I love me some snacks but think I may prefer more variety then multiples of the same item I may not like. Will keep an eye on this though!

  11. I will need to keep an eye on this one. If they are consistent with the number of items, it could be worth it for my house. We have bought the smoked gouda cracker chips at Walgreens, before a road trip! They are good! Granted the main reason I actually got a Costco card is due to their large lovely chunk of gouda they have there. hehe (We have found many more, must haves, since then lol)

    • Agree. Love the Gouda chips. Have purchased them before also.

      My comment is how old is that jerky stick to have an expiration date of Feb 4 2019. Too many expired item for my taste.
