WHAT IS A BETTY BOX?

Ever since Birchbox became a household name, We loved the idea! Now it seems like there is a box for every possible taste.

Even though the Betties aren’t in the monthly subscription box business, we wanted to create something that featured fabulous goodies for women entrepreneurs just like you. But those of you who know us, know that we had to do it in our own Betty way.

Each month we personally curate items we’re sure you’ll love. Once we get our hand on them, we use our photography and design superpowers to show you just how awesome they are, and then we give you our honest opinion about each one. These are items we choose because we think they’re beautiful and clever.

If there’s a product you think we should know about, send us an email. It could end up being featured!

We’re ladies on the go, which means that some of our meals get eaten between meetings or projects, and we often power up with a snack in the car. Stopping for fast food isn’t an option in our book, so how do we quickly refuel while still providing our body with the tasty nourishment it needs?

This month’s Betty Box is a list of our favorite snacks to slip in our purse on the way out the door.

KIND | Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein: Available at Kindsnacks.com and Your Local Grocery Store

Before we go into all of the adult-like, responsible reasons you should love KIND bars, let’s just skip to what you really want to know. They’re absolutely delicious.

Besides being absolutely delicious, they’re made entirely from REAL ingredients that you can actually pronounce, and are certified non-GMO. Plus they hit that sweet balance of protein and carbohydrates that gets our motors running smoothly.

If chocolate and peanut butter isn’t your thing, KIND has many other mouth-water flavor concoctions like Almond and Apricot, Blueberry Vanilla Cashew, or Honey Mustard. (We’ve counted somewhere around 50 different flavors. Something for all your tastebuds.)

Other KIND favorites include:

KIND Healthy Grains® Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate  AND Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt

Hail Merry Caramel Sea Salt Macaroons: Available on HailMerry.com or find them locally here.

These aren’t the cookies you think they are. Hail Merry’s macaroons are a bite of delicious raw almond flour, shredded coconut, and maple syrup, with a touch of sea salt. Their credentials include: non-GMO verified, certified vegan, and certified gluten-free. With healthy ingredients like this, can we even call this a cookie? It certainly tastes as good (okay, better) than the original macaroon. Let’s just call it nutrition in disguise.

Another one of our favorites:

Hail Merry Myer Lemon Miracle Tart

Late July Sea Salt Multigrain Tortilla Chips: Available locally here.

Chips probably aren’t the first thing you grab when you’re looking for something to keep your head clear and your energy up when powering through a tough project. We’re not talking about fatty, deep fried potato chips. Or even highly processed corn chips. Late July Multigrain Tortilla chips are filled with the good stuff: flax, chia, brown rice, millet, quinoa, and amaranth. All of the ingredients are certified gluten free, non GMO, and organic. (Of course.)

You could eat them on their own. Or you could pair them with creamy hummus, fresh guac, or some veggie packed salsa. There are no bad choices here.
