A selection box is a box of chocolate bars which contains a variety. e.g. a bar of fudge, a small block of chocolate, a small Mars bar, a small Kit Kat and so on.

Using "each" tells us that both people (or all the people) got the same. i.e. There wasn't a total of two crackers - there were two crackers for each person. (Same with the fruit, nuts, selection boxes and key rings).
