Chewy Moon Review
I was asked to review a new kind of snack box for kids, Chewy Moon. I have some fussy eaters at home but one thing I am careful about is filling them with sugary sweets and chocolate and so an alternative type of treat is always welcome.
I was sent a box of 5 snacks and an activity pack. The first thing I noticed was that the packaging was fantastic. It was bright and colourful and filled with lots of interesting and funny information.
Let me start with the five snacks we received in our box.
Jack and Berry, in a Space Chimp box. Contains 29g of strawberry shapes, cranberry, blueberry and flapjack. The kids all tried some of these and they were a big hit. My kids do love their fruits and these were a real treat. They rated them 5/5
Fantasticos, introduced by Loved Up Squirrel. Contains 25g pizza balls, edamame beans and baked cheese. These were hit an miss with the kids with only Boo liking the baked cheese and the Little Man liking the pizza balls. I love edamame beans so I was happy to finish these off. In fact I loved this pack the best so I'd give it 5/5 but the kids rated it 2/5
Cherry Cola, with Funny Duck. Ingredients, 30g of Cola raisins, cherry, cranberry. Funny Duck was a big hit and the kids favourite character. As they love raisins the kids really enjoyed the extra sweet and sticky cola raisins (Despite them not actually liking cola) the cranberries were also a hit but the cherries not so by Star. They rated them 4/5
Happy BBQ with Teo Moon. Ingredients 24g Smokey almonds, smokey coconut pecks. The kids are not big fans of nuts and would not even try the almonds. Their older brother really liked them though and Boo finished off the coconut pecks. Rating 1/5 but only because they don't like almonds.
Freaky Fruits with Dr Fluffy. Ingredients 30g Blackcurrant drops, apricot sticks, cherry cubes, peach cubes, raspberry strips. Another fruity treat and another big hit with kids. They rated it 5/5
As you can see, some of the packs were a big success and some not so, but if you sign up to Chewy Moon you can tell them your child's preferences. I'd ask them to omit almonds and edamame beans. I'd just have to buy my own.
The pack comes with the five snack packs, an nutrition fact sheet for parents so you can see exactly what your child is eating. A comic sheet called Chewy Moon Adventures, A stackable totem toy (that was really easy to put together, no glue or tape required,) a meet the heroes sheet and a brain busting fact card,
Chewy Moon is a subscription snack box for kids. You can get your first box for only 98p (wow) and future boxes cost £3.95 plus 98p postage. That works out at about 72p per snack which I think is great value and much healthier for your kids. You can cancel your subscription at any time, no commitment.
The boxes are customised for age, activity level and body type and can be bought for 3 to 12 year olds. When you sign up you give the relevant information for your child along with their preferences. The snack packs are filled with the tastiest and most nutritional snacks as approved by their taste panel of kids. Then the packs are filled with the fun stuff and posted out every week. You can note your favourite snacks online so that you can receive more of the things you like.
My kids really enjoyed their pack even though they may not have enjoyed every snack enclosed. They are a great alternative to sweet, sugary treats and a little more special that piece of fruit.
Disclosure: We were sent a box from Chewy Moon to Review, all thoughts and opinions are our own.
