They've got a line of snacks that are tasty and supposedly better for you.
https://www.graze.com/us/


EDIT: Being I used to go to Trader Joes a lot, I'm surprised I didn't mention this up front, but Trader Joes is too far away to work.

I tried the box one time, because I really like the snack box concept as a monthly treat. I just asked for a sampler of everything rather than picking specific stuff. If you look on their website under the Our Food tab you can see some of the stuff they have. My box included 1 Apple Cinnamon Flapjack, 1 Garden of England, 1 Herby Breadbasket, 1 Lightly Salted Popcorn bag, 1 Banana Caramel Dipper, 1 The Cheese Board, 1 Pizza Margherita, and 1 Nut and Fruit mixture one that I can't recall even when browsing through the list of stuff.

All of it was good to exceptional (my top favorites were the Herby Breadbasket and the Garden of England), aside from the popcorn. The popcorn was bland and wasn't very good quality.

I decided not to continue the service after the first box though, due to the quantity. 12$ for 7-9 oz. of snacks just didn't cut it for me even if I thoroughly enjoyed the stuff I got.

If quality over quantity is what you are going for, especially when it comes to healthier snacks, I would definitely recommend it. Or at the very least trying it once since the first box you get is half price. If quantity is a big deal in your decision for this stuff I would look elsewhere. (I would actually still try it one time since the first time is only 6$)

Designer junk food? Seriously? shake

Go to your local Trader Joe's. Half the price and twice the weight. Actual nutrition labels.

They constantly add new products, both seasonally and as part of their Darwinian stocking system: if it doesn't sell well, it goes extinct. For an example of a new product: Gingerbread Cookie Sticks

From the Product Information FAQ, http://www.traderjoes.com/faqs/product-information --

When you see our name on a label, you can be assured that the product contains:

YES quality ingredients
NO artificial flavors¹
NO artificial preservatives²
YES colors derived only from naturally available products³
NO MSG
NO genetically modified ingredients
NO partially hydrogenated oils (artificial trans-fats)
NO "marketing" costs
YES tasting panel approval
YES great price

[¹²³ See the notes at the link.]

I've not tried Graze, but I did do NatureBox for about three months. In line with what Walt has said, I was able to find similar snacks for less at Trader Joe's and, believe it or not, my local farmer's market. If you don't already shop at places like this, what you are ultimately paying for is the convenience of home delivery.

Trader Joes is a 3+ hour round trip. At best, that'll only happen a few times per year.


However, I have yet to check out the farmer's market.
