Paleo Life Box included a personalized card inviting me to provide feedback on their inaugural box.
Cascade Ranch Kale Chips by Pacific Northwest (1 oz)- value $5.99
(I couldn’t find the Cascade Ranch flavor on the Pacific Northwest website, so I’ve linked to the Stumptown Original flavor.)
Unfortunately, kale chips are my food kryptonite. They’re one of the few snacks I simply don’t like, so I’ll be passing these along to a more appreciative snacker. I love the packaging, though, and I think it’s worth mentioning that these are vegan, raw, organic, and gluten-free.
Dill Pickle Snip Chips (2 oz)- value $5.99
At first glance, I wasn’t sure what to make of these Snip Chips. I love parsnips. In fact, they’re one of my favorite veggies. But parsnips with coconut and dill pickle flavoring? I was skeptical that these flavors would work well together. Sadly, for me, they didn’t. I’d like to try another flavor, though. I think the Chipotle Lime Cilantro flavor sounds great.
Freeze Dried Strawberries by Crunchies (1 oz)- value $5.49
I love freeze dried fruit, so I’m always happy to receive it in a food box. The Crunchies Strawberries were delicious, and I like that Paleo Life Box included a full-sized pouch.
Banana Nut Crunch Grain-Free Granola by Paleo People (5 oz)- value $6.60
I really liked this product and was happy to see yet another full-sized snack pouch in the box. The combination of fruits and nuts was tasty, and I liked the subtle banana flavor. Since it’s made without grains, the texture and taste is different from traditional granola. (I think “nut cluster” is definitely a more appropriate name.) The Paleo People website suggests trying this sprinkled on top of a banana parfait. I think that sounds great.
Free Range Turkey Snack Sticks by Nick’s Sticks (1.7 oz)- value $3.25
I like jerky and meat sticks, and I thought these were delicious. They’re made from free-range turkey and are free of hormones, MSG, antibiotics, and dyes.
Rainforest Caveman Cookies (2- 16g. cookies)- value $1.90
Caveman cookies seem to pop up in Paleo boxes quite a bit. Unfortunately, they’re not really a favorite of mine. I like their chewy texture, but the flavor just isn’t for me. I have a few friends who adhere to a strict Paleo diet (and love these cookies), so I’ll pass them along to a good home.
Organic Coconut Snack Bar by Simple Squares (1.6 oz)- value $2.50
Simple Squares Coconut Snack Bars are paleo, organic, non-GMO, gluten free, and contain only five ingredients. I thought this bar was good and would make a great post-workout snack.
Carrot Ginger Veggie-Go’s (2- .42oz bars)- value $2.78
I really like fruit leather, and I thought these were excellent. The ginger flavor is very strong, which adds a nice spiciness that I liked a lot. I was also surprised to see that each package is only 20 calories!
Verdict: I really liked the selection of treats included in this Paleo Life Box. Not all of the products were a hit with me, but I appreciated the variety and liked that a good number of the snacks were full-sized. The value of the products included totals $34.50, which is pretty good for the $30 cost of the box. (It would be a great value if shipping were free!) This is only the first shipment from Paleo Life Box, but I hope future boxes continue to have the same high value and wide selection of products. If so, I think this would be a great snack box for Paleo dieters.
