SnackNation vs NatureBox
SnackNation is an awesome NatureBox alternative.
Here’s why you should consider switching…
More people than ever are starting to catch on – healthier snacking helps people become better versions of themselves. It’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to the snack biz – our core purpose is to serve as a catalyst for increased health, productivity, and happiness.
But not all healthy snacking experiences are created equal.
Love healthy snacks but not getting what you need out of your current snack provider? Looking to make the switch from NatureBox to SnackNation or one of the other NatureBox alternatives?
We want to arm you with the facts you need to make an informed decision and find the healthy snack provider that fits your needs.
That’s why we’ve put together this post laying out the top five reasons you might be looking for a NatureBox alternative. We’ve compiled the features, member feedback, and other info you need to be confident in your decision – whether you make the switch or not.
We hope this helps.
1. Discover Exciting New Brands, Not Generic Products
Sometimes you just need more than the same tired nuts and seeds. At SnackNation we work with the hottest, best tasting, and most innovative emerging brands on the planet.
NatureBox? Not so much. They are limited in the offerings because they only serve their own generically manufactured products. (Boring!)
Our view is that there are so many amazing brands out there, why not give them a platform to shine? These are mom and pop brands that started out with a vision, a dream, and a little elbow grease – companies that began in a dorm room (like R.e.d.d. bars), in a backyard smoker on LA’s Venice canals (like Venice Smokehouse jerky), or with a mom in Oregon trying to cook for her kids without refined sugar (like Betty Lou’s).
Here’s what some of our Members have to say about the brands in their monthly deliveries:
SnackNation is here to help you discover your next favorite snack. Brands love to use our platform to launch new products, SKUs, and flavors, so every month you’ll find something you’ve never tasted before. SnackNation offers packages for even the tightest of budgets with Dollar Snack Club, a monthly snack delivery service where you can try 6 new awesome snacks for only $1.
2. Enjoy Expert Curation
Our boxes are expertly curated by “Snack Scientists” who scour the country (and the globe) to bring you the best products and brands you’ve probably never heard of – but definitely want to.
Why does curation matter? Because there’s no discovery without it.
Curation guarantees that you won’t get stuck in a real life “filter bubble,” where you end up with the same types of things over and over again (the snacking equivalent of Groundhog’s Day). SnackNation guarantees a brand new snacking experience every single time, as brands and flavors are never repeated month-to-month.
Hey – maybe seaweed chips are your new favorite snack. You won’t know until you have the opportunity to try Ocean’s Halo.
That’s not to say that you have no choice in the matter. Our snack concierge makes sure that items you don’t care for are keep out of your deliveries.
Don’t take our word for it. Take it from Hannah Day of SnackNation member company Brightfire:
“The curation was a big deal for us. We were able to let SnackNation know what it is that we actually liked, what people didn’t like, and get something that everyone enjoyed – not just the picky eaters, or just the healthy eaters, or the just the junk food eaters.”
3. Get A Personalized Experience and Superior Customer Service
The word on the street is that NatureBox’s customer service leaves a lot to be desired.
One of the biggest complaints about NatureBox is that they don’t listen to what you want. That’s why you might end up with a product you don’t love – month after month.
Not the case with SnackNation. Every SnackNation membership comes with a dedicated “Snack Concierge” to ensure an optimal snacking mix.
Our customer service is one of our biggest differentiators, and one of the things we are proudest of.
In fact, we routinely throw member events at our offices in Culver City, just to get to know our members and learn how we can better serve their needs.
4. Get the Convenience of Single Servings
These days, life is lived on the go. You want to be able to grab a snack, throw it in your purse or your backpack, and have the flexibility of to eat that perfectly sized-portion when and where ever you happen to be.
That’s why we only deliver single serve portions. What’s more, many times the brands we work with only create single servings versions of their products for our boxes.
Here’s something else to consider – large sized bags can be incredibly unsanitary, especially in an office setting.
Think about it. During cold and flu season you don’t want everyone reaching into the same bag of cashews. No bueno.
5. Give Back to Families in Need
More than ever, it’s not enough for a company to provide an amazing experience for their customers. You have to be purpose driven, and put your money where your mouth is.
As a consumer, we also know that all things being equal, you’d rather use your buying power to help make the world a better place.
At SnackNation, we’re dedicated to the principle of social entrepreneurship. Not only is our product something that makes a positive difference in people’s lives, but we’re also dedicated to giving back to causes we care about.
That’s why for SnackNation box shipped, the company donates 10 meals to a family in need via a partnership with Feeding America.
It’s the thing that our members and employees alike are most proud of.
