Best Overall: Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest

Why We Chose It: Daily Harvest tops our list of healthy snack subscriptions for its variety of nutritious, whole food-based snacks and mini-meals.

Pros
  • Made with a short ingredient list of nutritious, whole foods


  • Nice variety of smoothies, oat bowls, snack bites, and more

  • Allows for custom-making your own selection of snacks

  • Registration and cancellation are simple

Cons
  • Portions of some items may be too large for snacking

  • Snacks are perishable, so they’re not all great for on-the-go eating

  • Some snacks require preparation

Overview

Many so-called “healthy” monthly snack subscription services are highly processed and loaded with unrecognizable ingredients. But not with Daily Harvest. This plant-based snack delivery tops our list for its transparency about its healthy, wholesome components. Oat bowls, chia bowls, smoothies, snack bites, and more are made with fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and little else, so it’s a great choice for vegans and vegetarians. Not only that, but 95% of the ingredients used are organic. When you truly want to eat healthier, Daily Harvest is hard to beat.

That said, since Daily Harvest’s snacks derive completely from fresh ingredients, they come frozen and are highly perishable. Some also require preparation, such as adding almond milk and blending for smoothies or baking for flatbreads. If your goal from a snack subscription box is total convenience for grab-and-go eating, Daily Harvest may not be your ideal pick. 

Getting started with Daily Harvest is quite simple. You’ll have your choice of three different subscription options: nine items of your choice per week, 14 items per week, or 24 items, which can be delivered monthly or weekly. With each subscription, it’s up to you to choose the items that arrive in your box. Each subscription also comes with a discount on the total price of items (about $10 off 14, and $20 off 24). 

Frequent promo codes and coupons can bring down overall costs as well. Want to skip a week or cancel altogether? Pausing or canceling your subscription requires just a couple of clicks.

Best Variety: SnackMagic

SnackMagic

SnackMagic

Why We Chose It: No other snack subscription service comes with as many options for snacks, diet types, and ordering plans as SnackMagic. 

Pros
  • Enormous selection of snacks

  • Choose from pre-selected or self-selected plans

  • Great for gifting

  • Snacks for multiple diet types

Cons
  • Variety of snacks and plans can be overwhelming

  • Process for ordering some plans is complicated

  • Must spend at least $45 to check out

  • Subscriptions are month-to-month only

Overview

One thing’s for sure: You’ll never be bored with SnackMagic’s box delivery service. For ultimate variety, this service has you covered. Select from a lengthy directory of snacks (like baked goods, nuts, dried fruits, protein bars, and many more), as well as beverages and pantry staples. If that’s not enough, you can also browse categories, like minority ownership, sustainability, and diet types ranging from gluten-free to kosher to pescatarian. SnackMagic’s variety is so immense, it may actually feel overwhelming (and with a dizzying number of pages, its website is somewhat confusing).

When you’re ready to order, SnackMagic offers three primary plans. Pre-curated “stashes” start at about $45 and come with your choice of theme. Examples include globally inspired snacks in the Around the World stash or artisanal, small-batch snacks in the Foodie Forward stash. If you’d rather pick out your own items for noshing, try the Build-Your-Own option. On this plan, you’ll add individually-priced items to your cart until you reach about a $45 minimum. Finally, there’s the Surprise Your Recipients plan, which allows you to gift a curated or self-selected box to family, friends, or anyone you’d like to shower with snacks. This plan also starts at $45.

SnackMagic’s deliveries are all month-to-month, so there’s no need for cancellation and they offer free shipping. If you’d rather not receive a box on any given month, simply don’t place an order.

Best Value: Love With Food

Love With Food

Love With Food

Why We Chose It: Love With Food is a great choice for your wallet and the world. For each box purchased, the company donates a meal to fight childhood hunger.

Pros
  • Low-priced plans start at about $9

  • Good selection of healthy snacks

  • For each box ordered, the company donates a meal to a food bank

  • Gluten-friendly option

Cons
  • Not very clear about where meals are donated

  • Website is somewhat confusing 

  • Email is the only means of accessing customer service

Overview

If you’re looking to sample tasty, healthy snacks but don’t want to drop a ton of cash, consider Love With Food. This snack subscription gets our vote for best value, with boxes starting as low as roughly $9 per month for seven or more snacks.

You’ll enjoy a pre-selected mix of good-for-you snacks, such as popcorn, chickpea chips, whole wheat crackers, and jerkies, all made with no hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, or artificial flavors or colors. Plus, you can feel good about your snacks’ broader impact. For each box shipped, Love With Food donates a meal to a food bank. (However, their website is a bit vague on the details of where these meals are donated.)

In addition to the $9 per month subscription (called the “Tasting” box), Love With Food offers two other monthly membership choices: a Deluxe Box of 15-plus snacks for roughly $18 to $20 and a Gluten-Friendly Box of 10 or more snacks for about $22 to $25. Why the range of prices? Pre-paying up to six months costs the lowest while paying monthly costs the most.

Love With Food’s Snack Squad membership program provides discounts, and all boxes come with free shipping. Memberships auto-renew each month, but it’s possible to cancel as long as you do so by 5 p.m. the day before your auto-renewal.

Best for Keto: My Keto Snack Box

My Keto Snack Box

My Keto Snack Box

Why We Chose It: Staying in ketosis requires a delicate balance of carbs, fats, and proteins. My Keto Snack Box alleviates the hassle of monitoring your macros.

Pros
  • Multiple subscription options

  • Guaranteed keto-friendly snacks

  • Users praise variety

Cons
  • No self-selection option

  • Not very transparent about what will arrive in your box

  • Somewhat pricey

Overview

Balancing your macros to stay in ketosis can be a real challenge, especially when you’re first starting out on keto. A true ketogenic diet requires eating most of your calories from fat, a moderate amount of protein, and very few from carbs. My Keto Snack Box supplies snacks that are guaranteed to fit this breakdown. 

If you enjoy a good surprise, you might especially like this subscription. My Keto Snack Box curates eight to 12 snacks per month (all with 5 grams or less of net carbs) without spilling the beans about what’s inside. And while the service won’t tell you what’s coming in your box, the brand does share photos of past boxes on its Instagram page to give you a general idea of what to expect. Jerky, dark chocolate, cheese puffs, and even drinks are some of the items that round out their assortment of packaged snacks.

My Keto Snack Box offers four subscription options, all shipped on the seventh of each month. To enjoy your snacks on a month-to-month basis, you’ll pay about $38. Or, choose from three pre-paid subscriptions of three, six, or 12 months. Discount codes, free shipping, and a referral program are available and do sweeten the deal, though. Cancel any time with one click.

Best for Paleo: Healthy Surprise

Healthy Surprise

Healthy Surprise

Why We Chose It: Healthy Surprise has an excellent selection of snacks tailored specifically to the Paleo diet. All their snacks follow the guidelines of the diet closely and are free of wheat, legumes, dairy, corn, and soy.

Pros
  • Offers a Paleo Box with snacks that abide by Paleo diet principles

  • Monthly subscription saves money

  • Lots of snacks in a box

Cons
  • High price may be prohibitive

  • Though snacks are Paleo-friendly, they’re still processed

  • No free shipping

Overview

Since the Paleo diet focuses on minimally processed foods, it can be tough to find convenient, portable snacks that fit the bill. Healthy Surprise’s Paleo snack box does its best to make a caveman proud.

This monthly box of more than 17 snacks contains a mix of bars, chips, nuts, dried fruits, meats, and more. Per Paleo guidelines, all the snacks in Healthy Surprise’s Paleo box are free of wheat, legumes, dairy, corn, and soy. (Still, if you’re going for a true primal diet, you may feel a conflict about ordering a box of packaged snacks.) Two other options are available, the Classic Box and Big Box, but they are not Paleo-friendly.

Healthy Surprise’s Paleo Box comes with a rather high price tag of about $64 per month. But discounts like 15% off for an automatic subscription and $10 off for referring a friend can make this service a bit more budget-friendly.

Best for Vegans: Vegancuts

Vegancuts

Vegancuts

Why We Chose It: Vegans can enjoy a delightful monthly selection of plant-based snacks at reasonable prices with Vegancuts.

Pros
  • Reasonable prices

  • Plant-based snacks contain no animal products

  • Beauty boxes also available

  • Donates monthly to animal sanctuaries

Cons
  • No personalized customization

  • Only one snack box option

  • Email is the only way to access customer service

Overview 

Vegans and non-vegans alike may find something to enjoy with Vegancuts, a snack service free of animal products. The service's snack curators pick 10 or more bites like bars, nuts, popcorn, chocolate, and dried fruit to include in their monthly snack box. If you order before the 12th of the month, the first box will ship between the 11th and 17th. If you order on the 16th of the month or later, the first box will ship the next Monday, Wednesday, or Friday.

This subscription option costs about $25 monthly and ships free within the U.S., but you also have the option to pre-pay for three, six, or 12 months. (The six- and 12-month subscriptions get discounted by $15 and $40, respectively.) And though the 10-snack box is Vegancuts’ only option for snacks, the company also offers a separate vegan beauty box for the same price. Another bonus: Vegancuts donates a portion of each monthly purchase to an animal sanctuary.

Cancellation is a simple process on the Vegancuts website, but users may find other aspects of the online experience are somewhat frustrating. The site doesn’t offer a customer service phone number or online chat option. The only means of contacting customer service is via email. 

Best for Athletes: CLEAN.FIT

Clean.Fit

Clean.Fit

Why We Chose It: CLEAN.FIT is a fitness snack delivery service with heart. This female-owned business invests in good causes while providing snacks to fuel your workouts.

Pros
  • Boxes are curated with athletes in mind

  • Company plants a tree for every box sold and donates excess products to food banks

  • Excellent variety for special diets

  • Many snacks are organic

Cons
  • Customer service via email only

  • Many snacks are sample-sized, not full-sized

Overview

If you’re an athlete, you probably know the importance of refueling post-workout with a mix of protein and carbohydrates. CLEAN.FIT provides snacks that help you do just that with a unique mix of bars, nut butter bites, protein powders, cookies, crackers, and beverages, to name a few. 

With a CLEAN.FIT subscription, you’ll have two basic snack box options with free shipping offered within the U.S. First, there’s the regular size box, which includes nine or more snacks (about $35 for a month-to-month subscription or as little as about $30 per month for a pre-paid year). Or, for larger appetites or more snackers in the house, try the SuperSnacker box, which comes with at least 18 snacks (roughly $60 monthly or as low as around $51 for a pre-paid year). The variety of box options doesn’t stop there. Both the regular and SuperSnacker boxes can be customized for gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan diets. Cancel any time by following a few prompts in your online account.

Not only will CLEAN.FIT’s snacks fuel your cycling, running, or lifting, they might lead you to discover a new workout to enjoy. Each snack box comes with a suggested workout routine from a professional trainer. Meanwhile, CLEAN.FIT’s promise to plant a tree for each box purchase (and donations of excess products to food banks and women’s shelters) may make its higher price tag worthwhile.

Best for International Snacks: Try the World

Try the World

Try the World

Why We Chose It: Try the World’s two snack box options will introduce you to foods from different cultures and countries.

Pros
  • Fun variety of global snacks 

  • The company prioritizes snacks from small, family-owned food producers 

  • Extremely helpful website

Cons
  • Snacks may not be as healthy as other subscription services

  • Boxes are not customizable

  • Snack box only includes six snacks

Overview

Want to sample a world of global flavors without leaving your home? Try the World is just the thing.

Two subscription options are on tap here: Countries and Snacks. With the Countries box, you’ll receive a monthly package of seven or eight foods from a single country, such as olive spread from Argentina, pistachio cream from Italy, or roasted chickpeas from India. If you pay every month, this box costs about $39, but pre-pay for three, six, or 12 months to save anywhere from $4 to $10 per box.

Interested in more variety? Check out the Snacks box, which features six snacks from six different countries (around $19 per month or roughly $15 per month on a 12-month payment plan). You have the freedom to switch between boxes at any time, but there’s no customizing the contents of your boxes. Cancellation is uncomplicated to do online but must be completed at least five days prior to your subscription renewal date.

If healthy eating is a top priority, Taste the World might not be your best bet. While some snacks like banana chips or chia seed pudding are quite healthy, the aim of this service is to provide a culinary adventure, not prime nutrition. The service also doesn’t cater to any individual diet types. Even so, this one is a fun way for the whole family to experience new flavors and cuisines.

Best for Allergies: Bitewell

Why We Chose It: Bitewell caters to those with food allergies through vegan and gluten-free snack boxes, plus a shop-able pantry of individual allergen-free items.

Pros
  • Snacks crafted by registered dietitians


    Online interface allows you to talk directly with dietitians

  • Supports small businesses

  • Vegan, gluten-free, and allergy-friendly options available

Cons
  • Free shipping is only for members

  • Some snacks are quite small

  • New app has yet to launch

Overview

Got food allergies? Bitewell’s got solutions. Founded in 2020, this up-and-coming subscription service features a pantry of foods you can shop by allergen, food certification, or diet. Or, if it’s a pre-selected box of snacks you’re after, choose from its three dietitian-curated monthly boxes: the Discovery Box, Vegan Box, or Gluten-free Box. 

The Discovery Box, which costs about $25 as a one-time purchase (or roughly $20 as a subscription) comes with eight to 12 bites that may include jerky, coffee beverages, adaptogen-infused bars, and more. The Vegan and Gluten-Free Boxes, meanwhile, are available for either a one-time purchase (about $35) or a quarterly subscription (roughly $30). You can expect eight snacks in the Vegan Box and nine in the Gluten-Free Box. One caveat, though: With Bitewell, very small items, such as mints and gum, count toward this total.

Bitewell also strongly promotes its general $5 per month membership, which provides users with free shipping, members-only sales, and early access to new features.

Final Verdict

While tastes certainly vary, for our money, Daily Harvest comes out on top. Minimally processed real food ingredients, ample variety, and customizable service plans make this an excellent choice for nutritious snacking throughout your day.

However, if you’re seeking snacks to support a special diet, provide extreme variety, fuel your athletic performance, or take you on a culinary trip around the world, you can’t go wrong trying out the other options on this list.

How to Choose the Best Healthy Snack Subscription Box

To select your ideal healthy snack subscription box, first, consider what your health goals are. Being on a specific diet or simply trying to get more fruits and veggies will steer you toward an option that works for you. In addition to budget, a service’s variety of snacks, the ability to customize a box on your own (or be surprised), and frequency of delivery may also factor into your decision.

Benefits of a Monthly Healthy Snack Subscription

Convenience is the name of the game when it comes to the healthy snack box experience. Getting small bites dropped at your doorstep can certainly save time and sometimes even money. Allowing a delivery company to choose snacks for you may also introduce you to new foods you might not try on your own. Last but not least, a monthly snack box is a fun surprise to receive in the mail.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Do Healthy Snack Subscription Boxes Cost?

It’s not surprising that there’s a range of prices for snack subscriptions. Monthly boxes can start as low as around $9 and go up to roughly $60 or more. Prices will depend in part on whether snacks are organic, contain specialty ingredients, or have been selected for special diets.

Are Healthy Snack Subscription Boxes Good for Special Diets?

Snack boxes are a great option for specific diets. Once you find a subscription service that caters to your dietary needs, you can rest assured you’ll be noshing on snacks that support the right kind of eating for your special diet. Of course, it’s important to verify that what you see is what you get. (For example, gluten-friendly doesn’t always mean 100% gluten-free, so you may want to inquire about ingredient details.)

What Comes in a Healthy Snack Subscription Box?

“Healthy” is a broad term for sure, and there’s no one-size-fits-all diet. The contents of a healthy snack box will vary, depending on the service you choose. The spectrum ranges from frozen, perishable smoothies and grain bowls (as with Daily Harvest) and nonperishable packaged snacks (as with SnackMagic) to snacks tailored to suit specific diets (as with My Keto Snack Box). 

Methodology

With literally hundreds of snack subscription boxes on the market, it’s no small task to decide which to recommend. We looked for services that offer snacks with ingredient lists of whole, minimally processed foods, limited sugar, and moderate calorie counts, as well as those best tailored to each dietary goal on our list. Price was also a consideration, and we also made sure to consider subscription boxes that ship nationwide.
