Some people eat to live, other people live to eat. Either way, eating and drinking the same old same old can get a little boring day after day. Feel like you need a little variety?
Fortunately, getting some variety in your diet is easier than ever thanks to the internet. There are countless subscription services that can bring a vast array of foods and beverages right to your door, and that even includes complete meals.
Here are a few of our favorite services!
Have you wanted to go vegetarian but couldn’t figure it out? Or maybe you’re already vegetarian but wished there was a meal subscription box that you could eat?
Splendid Spoon is a worthy option: weekly boxes shipped to you, containing 100% plant-based meals that taste great.
There are three plan options—Breakfast, Breakfast+Lunch, or Breakfast+Lunch+Dinner—that each serve five days every week.
You can pick and choose which meals you want every week from Splendid Spoon’s 50+ meals selection. Convenient, healthy, and delicious!

You’re probably busy. After all, most people are these days, which is why they’re turning to food delivery services. HelloFresh is meant for busy people who still want a good meal at the end of the day.
The service offers plans for two or four people, with options for three or four recipes per week.
You can pick from Meat & Veggies, Veggie, Family Friendly, and Low Calorie menu options. With plans starting at $8.99 per serving plus $7.99 shipping, it’s not that expensive either.

3. Blue Apron
Another full meal subscription service, Blue Apron might be a more recognizable name than HelloFresh. While the menu options are different between each service, the overall services are similar. It mainly comes down to which has the menu you prefer.
Blue Apron might seem somewhat more expensive at $9.99 per meal per person, but Blue Apron’s pricing includes shipping so you’re actually getting a slightly better deal.

If you listen to podcasts, you’ve probably heard about Naturebox. Like, a lot. Don’t let that stop you from trying the service though, as it has some delicious snack options that are often (but not always) healthy.
Whether you prefer salty snacks or sweet treats, Naturebox probably has something you’ll enjoy.
The service used to work as more of a traditional subscription service, but it has switched to a membership model, where a $30 per year membership gets you a discount on snack purchases.
Of the many coffee subscription boxes available, Driftaway Coffee is easily one of the best options.
The unique aspect here is that Driftaway Coffee equips you to explore different coffees at your own pace, and over time personalizes each box to your own tastes based on the feedback you gave on previous boxes.
Driftaway Coffee also promotes sustainability (through eco-friendly packaging), fair trade (through contributions to coffee farmers), and carbon neutrality (through collaboration with Cool Effect).
Is ethical coffee important to you? Go with Driftaway Coffee.
Do you wish you had access to better cuts of meat but don’t have a good local butcher? Give ButcherBox a try. This is another service you might have heard about on podcasts, but with a more singular focus.
As the name implies, ButcherBox is a subscription service for meat. This includes grass-fed beef, free range organic chicken, and heritage breed pork. There is currently a wait list for the service, so if you’re interested, sign up sooner rather than later.
Alcohol is generally an entirely different story, but we figured we’d include one subscription on this list for those readers who like to imbibe. With Winc, you answer a few questions to help the service determine the type of wine you like and they take it from there.
Once you’ve told them about your preferences, they’ll send you new wines to try every monthly. Pricing starts at $39 per month plus $9 shipping, and that gets you three bottles per month. Not grocery store table wine cheap, but not expensive either.
For whatNerd readers: 35% off your first Winc order!
Looking for More Snack Boxes?
This article is just a shallow peak into a vast ocean of subscription services, so only two of the services here cover snacks.
