**Product received for review. All thoughts are my own.

I hate shopping for snacks!

I know, I know...hate is such a strong word... but it's true! The rest of my grocery shopping comes pretty easily. I have my lists planned out- entree and sides, household needs, kitchen essentials... but when it comes to snacks, I draw a blank.

You see, my kids are snackers. My husband too! They eat all the time. When we think of snacks we so often think of junk food... and that's not what I want for my family all the time. Instead I want to feed them foods that I can feel good about. But where to begin? The trouble with healthier food options for me is that they tend to be a bit more expensive, and for what you'e getting, I completely understand... but at the same time, it makes it hard to branch out and try new things. If we don't like it? We've thrown that extra money in the trash! So, I find I tend to go with the same ol' snacks over and over again.

Until Chef Club Box that is!

Sounds pretty cool, right? But that's not the coolest part. Chef Club Box was created by a 15-year-old! Remmi Smith is far from your average 15-year-old however! Her Italian Salad Dressing is sold at Whole Foods and other specialty stores and she is a published author of Global Cooking for Kids, which as won a gold Addy award. Pretty accomplished for a 15-year-old, right! Chef Club Box is her latest venture in her mission to raise awareness about the problem of childhood obesity!

Having read all that, I was pretty intrigued and could not wait to try it out! When I first opened my Chef Club Box, I was greeted with a fun calendar that shared several food related 'holidays'. Did you know that February 4 was National Homemade Soup Day? I didn't either! But these fun days were fun to go through with my kids, and also helped to create some fun menu inspiration too! There was also a fun newsletter with activities for the kids.

But the real fun was inside... it was loaded with delicious and healthy treats for the whole family! Some snacks were more suitable for my kids, while others were ideal for my husband or I. It gave us a large variety of snacks to choose from and we were able to discover some that we could buy in the future too. Knowing ahead of time that we like them makes paying the higher price tag more bearable! My favorite though was the fun surprises for the grown ups... including Remmi's Italian Salad Dressing AND a stunning necklace from The Vintage Pearl- a jewelry company that I happen to be a huge fan of! The surprises certainly kept coming with this box!
