Snacks are what keeps the world moving. Yes — healthy, well-balanced meals are important to stave off hunger throughout the day, but the secret sauce to avoiding hunger? Snacks. You’re bound to get peckish during that mid-afternoon slump where it’s too late for lunch but too early for dinner. So what do you do? Grab something light to satisfy the craving. Now the question becomes, what do you grab? There are plenty of snack options out there to choose from, which can make the selection overwhelming.
Are you a cheese and crackers person? A potato chip person? A vegetable crudité lover? How about a candy fanatic? Whatever your go-to is, you’re going to want options, and you’ll want to make sure you never run out of your favorites. The solution? Snack subscription boxes. They make snack boxes for everything these days — so treat yourself to a selection of gourmet refreshments monthly that’ll power you through your days. These boxes also make great gifts for anyone on your list heading into the holidays because who doesn’t love snacks? Enjoy the best snack subscription boxes available for delivery right to your door.
A curated box of snacks to your door each month, each themed with a different country. The snacks are hand-picked by in-house snack experts and range from salty to sweet and sour. And you can add a drink as well if you’d like. They have three different sizes to choose from — mini, original, and premium so you can pick what works for you. The snacks are also shipped directly from the source so that you can rely on their quality, authenticity, and freshness.
2. Bokksu Japanese Snack Box
Some say Japanese snacks are the best snacks — and we don’t disagree. We’ve written about this Bokksu snack subscription box on Spy before because it’s such an awesome product and one of the best ways to get snacks delivered. Each snack is sourced by hand from centuries-old family businesses in Japan, and many of them rarely make it to supermarkets in the states, so you know you’re getting something truly unique. Each box is bursting with snacks and flavor — 20-24 snack and tea options, to be exact. Each one also includes a beautifully drawn booklet with info about all of the snacks, as well as allergen info.

Pretzel nuggets are filled with either peanut butter, almond butter, dark chocolate, peanut butter, or plant-based cheese. There’s even an allergen-friendly pretzel stick bundle.
BEST FRUIT SNACKS
5. RIND Variety Snack Box
RIND snacks upcycle fruit rinds and turn them into healthy snacks. No, this isn’t an oxymoron. The company creates signature treats like straw-perry, coco-melon, or their new dark cocoa sea salt coconut crisps. If you prefer something classic, they also have single-flavor chips like apple, peach, or orange. These snacks are vegan, paleo-friendly, and use non-GMO ingredients. RIND has a VIP subscription service that can save them 10% off subscriptions when they sign up. Delivery frequency can be every week or once a month.

They also make seasonally themed cookie boxes like the Chocolate Love Cookie of the Month. Cookies can be customized regarding allergens and gluten. If baking is your way to reduce stress, they also offer a DIY Cookie Kit monthly subscription.

11. FULFIL Nutrition Variety Box
Instead of a candy bar with empty calories, try snacking on a bar that’s good for you. While these snack bars look gooey, crunchy, and bad for you, they’re chock full of goodness. Each bar contains 15 grams of protein, 20% of the daily value of eight vitamins, 1 gram of sugar, and three or fewer carbs per bar. The variety box contains four of the following bars: chocolate hazelnut, chocolate salted caramel, chocolate peanut caramel, and chocolate peanut butter.
BEST FOR PASTRY LOVERS
12. Wildgrain Subscription Box
If your idea of the perfect snack is a pastry or bread straight from the oven, sign up for Wildgrain’s membership box. Artisan pastries, sourdough breads (imagine it drenched with butter), and pasta are sent to you monthly. When the box arrives, pop the bread or croissants, or pastries in the freezer. When you’re ready for a snack, simply put them in the oven for 25 minutes, and then they’re ready to eat. All baked goods are made with clean ingredients without preservatives. Each box is different, as the offerings are based on what’s in season. Right now, they’re offering free croissants for life when you sign up for a monthly membership.
