Boxtera: Healthy Snacks Delivered To Your Door - Review

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Boxtera is a monthly subscription of the best gourmet products found on the market. Customers choose a monthly subscription of 5, 10 or 20 full-size healthy boxtera snack pouches which are delivered directly to their office, dorm or home door. Each boxtera discovery box includes five adventurous all-natural snack varieties that fall into one of the five taste categories included in your gustatory perception; savory, sweet, sour, bitter and salty. You can also find individual snack pouches sold separately by visiting their Market Place.

My eating habits within the past few months have changed for the better. I still divulge in junk food and fast food from time to time, but I've become more aware of what goes into my body. That's because I've been working out so much lately and participating in roller derby practice that I need snacks and foods that will be beneficial to my body.
Boxtera sent me one of their monthly subscription boxes of healthy snacks. Inside the box were five indiviudal snack pouches. Of the five snacks, I've only tasted one prior. The other four were a whole new tasting experience for me.

Mango Chews - With no artificial flavors, these orange edibles are chewy with a little bit of sourness. These were my husband's favorite and he'd eat handfuls before heading to work. He liked the different spin on the mangos and their texture. The Mango Chews looked like flat orange strips of leather, but definitely tasted better.
Dried Tangerine Slices - These tangy and sweet dried tangerine slices also had a chewy texture. I ate them by theirselves as a snack and also added a couple smaller pieces to a salad for additional flavor.

Pub Mix - I've had snack mixes similar to this one and the Pub Mix I received from Boxtera was close to them. There's a whole crunchy mixture of pretzels, sesame sticks, rye chips, crackers and peanuts. It's a perfect combination.

Hisbiscus Flowers - This is the only snack I wasn't a big fan of. The dried hibiscus flower blossoms were pretty and I like the concept but I couldn't get past the fact that I was eating a flower. The texture was chewy and there was a slight perfumy taste.

BBQ Banana Chips - Who would've thought barbeque and banana would go so well together? These crunchy chips were a combination of spicy and sweet. Upon first bite, you were welcomed with a BBQ flavor. By the time the whole thing was chewed, you could taste the sweetness of the banana. It's an interesting combination that works!

I would never in a million years have thought to mix BBQ and Banana together. What a combo. The Pub Mix and the Mango sound great.
