It’s been almost a year sincebrought our day-to-day lives to a screeching halt. If you or your loved ones haven’t had much excitement in your life since the start of the pandemic, it might be time to try shaking things up in your pantry by signing up for a snack box. After all, snacks are a small way to add some variety to your day.
Like, snack boxes have taken off in recent years. Thanks to the web and lightning-fast logistics, we now have access to delicious snacks from all over the world more than ever before. A snack box or a monthly subscription box that curates boxes of interesting and, in some cases, hard-to-find snacks is one of the best ways to track ’em down and try ’em all.
There are plenty of snack subscription boxes and snack box services for delivery in 2020, each with its own specialty, curating mailings of sweet and salty goodies and treats. There are even healthy snack boxes that offer vegan snacks and made with nutritious ingredients (like dried fruit and nut butter) for health-conscious snackers or people with dietary restrictions. You can have them delivered monthly with a subscription option or get a one-time order, should you prefer.
In the spirit of better snacking, we rolled up our sleeves and unwrapped the best snack subscription boxes and snack delivery services in 2020. Regardless of whether you have a sweet tooth, are tracking your net carbs or are just in the mood for a variety pack that scratches your snacking itch, we’re sure we have a snack box subscription option for you.
We first compiled this list of the best snack subscription boxes and snack delivery services before COVID-19 hit, but we still stand by the power of these tasty snacks. We’ll continue to update the list periodically as new snack subscription options become available.
The Japanese have snacking down to an art form. The Japanese art of snacking, you might say. Bokksu knows this better than anyone, collecting some of the best Japanese snacks from the east and sending them in a one-time curated box or recurring monthly snack box. And oh boy are they fun. The best part about the Bokksu box is that almost none of these Japanese snacks remind you much of snacks we already have in the US, but are (mostly) freakin’ delicious. Which raises the question: “What the heck are we doing wrong here, people?!”
Best snacks: Seaweed tempura, green tea and lemon cakes. Japanese candy including yuzu gummies and matcha or strawberry Kit-Kats.
Not to be outdone, MunchPak features some of the best international snacks from around the world, including countries like Brazil, France, Canada, Greece and Japan, earning it a spot on our list of the best snack subscription boxes. While Bokksu is serving up 100% snack class, MunchPak has a few more, let’s call them, guilty pleasure snacks in its subscription box. If you’re a sucker for goodies like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and Sour Patch anything but also consider yourself worldly AF, this is probably a good snack box for you. Boxes start at just $9.95.
Best snacks: Biscolata mood cookies, Kingsbury Flamin’ Hot Claws and Fini sour candy straws.
This food subscription box is sort of somewhere in between Bokksu and MunchPak. With Universal Yums, you’ll get tasty snacks from around the world (like MunchPak) but of a slightly higher pedigree (like Bokksu), from sweet snacks to savory snack picks. Think good salted French chocolate, purple yam shortbread and Turkish-spiced Bagarati cracker chips. Boxes start as low as $13.75.
Best snacks: Black truffle potato chips, handmade baklava and garlic plantain chips.
You get one guess as to what this snack gift box and monthly snack subscription box does best. But we’re not talking boring old Milky Ways and Skittles here: Candy Club sends its own candies and they change monthly for subscribers with a sweet tooth. A healthy mix of fruity, sour and chocolate treats with the occasional cake bites, caramel or taffy thrown in the monthly box. You can order a one-time or monthly snack box with six candy cups in either 6- or 13-ounce sizes.
Best snacks: Sour strawberry belts, chocolate toffee peanuts and cookie dough bites.
SnackNation is built around the idea that employees with access to good snacks are happier employees and I can’t say I disagree. SnackNation doesn’t have the most interesting selection of the snack box delivery companies on this list, but its packages consistently include tons of familiar fan favorite snacks. If you’re the big boss person, small business owner or HR rep trying to make the most people happy with one single snack delivery, a subscription to SnackNation is a good bet. Oh, and it also delivers coffee and fresh fruit, which I guess is technically a healthy snack.
Best snacks: Hu chocolate bars, Country Archer jerky and Naked Bear granola bites.
Love with Food
