Whether you need a constant selection of munchies for your kiddos’ lunches or your own, a snack subscription box is an easy way to make sure you’ve always got something yummy on hand. Here are some of our fave snack subscription services to keep those lunch boxes and work bags full of tasty treats.

Not only are subscription boxes a great way to get food in the house without actually having to go out and get it, but they’re also a lot of fun! They give you a chance to sample new things from other states, or even from all over the world.

Whether you have special dietary needs, want more adventurous options, or you’re just trying to eat healthier, there’s a snack subscription box out there for everyone.

Best Overall: Universal Yums

Universal Yums

One of the most popular snack subscription boxes out there, Universal Yums delivers great-tasting snacks from all over the world and makes it extra fun. Each box comes full of popular snacks from a different country. For example, past boxes have been from the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Brazil, and France.

In addition to the snacks, you’ll also get a 12-page booklet that includes recipes, trivia, info on what you’ve received, and more, which make this box a bit more interactive. It’s fun to see all the different things you’re going to get and is a great way to get a little taste of different cultures even while stuck at home.

You can choose from three different sized boxes: six+ in each box, 12+ in each box, or 20+ in each box. Universal Yums starts at $13.75 per month, depending on the size you pick.

Best Candy: Candy Club

If you just want a steady stream of sugary good stuff delivered to your home each month, then opt for Candy Club, a subscription box that sends (you guessed it) different kinds of candy. One thing to note is that Candy Club is a brand that sends their candies, so don’t expect to get an assortment of chocolate bars or gummies you might find at your local grocery store.

When you join, you can pick your flavor profile (Mostly Sweet or Mostly Sour), which will ensure you get a box of stuff you actually want to eat each month. You’ll receive six cups of candy each month, with items like pineapple rings, cookie dough bites, and dark chocolate malted milk balls.

You can choose the Fun Box (six, 6 oz. jars) or the Party Box (six, 13 oz. jars). Prices start at $29.99 per month.

Best for Giving Back: Love with Food

Love With Food

Want your snack box with a side of charity? Love with Food makes you feel good about indulging in a box of goodies each month by donating at least one meal to a family in need each time they send a snack box out.

Each box contains a nice mix of snacks that are both delicious and not terribly bad for you. All snacks are made from clean, real ingredients, and each one passes the 73 Banned Ingredients List (that means things like no trans fat, no hydrogenated oils, no high fructose corn syrup, and so on).

You’ll probably get a mix of salty and sweet snacks, with some candy, drinks, or beef jerky thrown in, as well.

Love with Food offers three different plans: Tasting (seven+ snacks and one meal donated), Deluxe (15+ snacks and two meals donated), or Gluten-Friendly (10+ snacks and two meals donated). Prices start at $8.99.

Best Vegan: VeganCuts Snack Box

It can sometimes be tough to find really good vegan snacks out there, so if you’re looking for some variety, VeganCuts Snack Box is a great idea. Each month, you’ll receive ten or more vegan snacks and meal items, like vegan chocolate, avocado chips, superfood smoothies, and even vegan drinks.

Boxes are expertly curated and sourced from all over the world for a really interesting selection. Each item is cruelty-free, so you know no animals were harmed for your snack.

Each box has a theme—for example, September’s is Fall-Off-Your-Chair-Tasty Treats. If you find you really love their snacks, keep in mind that VeganCuts also makes Makeup and Beauty Boxes.

MunchPak

Healthiest: NatureBox

NatureBox

NatureBox works a bit differently than most of these other snack subscription boxes, but we still think it’s worth a spot on this list. The snacks are truly delicious and healthy, and you get a lot of versatility and options.

NatureBox doesn’t send you a box of surprise treats each month. Rather, you pay for a yearly membership, and then you go on the site each month to select the snacks you want to get. If you prefer to know what you’re buying, this box is ideal.

The online store has a wide selection of items, and it’s not just snacks. In addition to salty and sweet snacks, there are oatmeal, coffee, candy, lattes, supplements, and even CBD snacks. You can also choose to buy your snacks in bulk.

NatureBox is $30 per year, but you do also have to pay for individual snacks (you get a member discount for each one).

Best Asian Treats: Tokyo Treat

Japan and China are known for a fascinating array of foods that we simply don’t have here in the United States. There are several snack boxes out there that are totally focused on Asian snacks, but one of the best is TokyoTreat. It delivers a monthly box of Japanese snacks and candies to your doorstep.

TokyoTreat curates and handpicks the boxes and each one is a surprise. The options are super unique and fun, so only get this if you’re an adventurous snacker! Some previous options include frozen Coca-Cola, Festival Sauce Cabbage Chips, and Soy Sauce and Butter Flavor popcorn.

You can choose the Classic (12 full-size items) or Premium (17 full-size items) box, and prices start at $31.50.
