Each box comes with a card detailing the items included for that month.
Flamous Organic Spicy Falafel Chips (1.6 oz)- value $1.67
I’ve had falafel chips before, and I really like them. They’re made with herbs, spices, and legumes to mimic the flavor of falafel, and, naturally, they’re great dipped in hummus. They’re also organic, non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, and kosher.
Thai Coconut Curry Popcorn by Pop Art (1.25 oz.)- value about $1.15
This popcorn is flavored with savory Thai spices and coconut milk. Curry-flavored popcorn is definitely a new discovery for me, and I think the flavor combination is really interesting. I like Thai curries, and I thought this popcorn definitely referenced the flavors they typically incorporate. It was mild (not spicy at all) with subtle flavors of coconut and lime. I’m a big fan of this product, and I was happy to see that there are only 55 calories per cup!
Organic Thai Red Rice Noodles by Explore Asian (8 oz)- value $3.80
I might be alone here, but I really like when snack and food boxes include products like this. It’s great to receive snacks that you can eat right away or grab on the go, but I think it’s also nice to receive something that can be incorporated into a meal. Truthfully, I’m never as excited to see these products when I open the box, but I feel differently when I’m scouring the cabinets looking for something to throw together for dinner. There’s a recipe on the back of the packet for Thai Red Rice Vermicelli and Vegetable Egg Rolls that sounds interesting. I might give that a try if these don’t end up in veggie noodle bowls first.
R W Garcia MixtBag (1.5 oz)- value about $.50
MixtBag is a gluten free mix of blue and yellow corn tortilla chips. In addition to being gluten free, they are vegan (of course) and non-GMO. I like the idea of mixing blue and yellow tortilla chips, and I think the mix of colors would look great poured into a bowl. With Cinco de Mayo fast approaching, these might be a good choice for entertaining.
Dark Dog Organic Energy Drink (12 fl. oz.)- value $2.50
(Note that through the end of April, Amazon is offering BOGO on cases of Dark Dog Energy Drink.)
Dark Dog is non-GMO, organic, and a natural source of caffeine (because it’s made with green tea, yerba mate, and guarana). Personally, I avoid energy drinks, but this one gets excellent reviews on Amazon.
Grab the Gold Gluten Free Snack Bar (2 oz.)- value $2.49
Gluten Free Multi-Grain Crackers by Crunchmaster (.5 oz.)- value $.43
Grab the Gold Snack Bars are made without high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, and dairy. They’re also vegan, high in fiber, and contain no trans fat. Flavor wise, they’re made with peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate, which helps make them taste a little like a no-bake cookie.
I enjoyed the gluten free Crunchmaster crackers. As someone who can (and does) eat gluten, I’m always impressed when I taste a gluten-free cracker or cookie that I can’t tell is gluten free. That was the case with these.
PureGreen Proten in Vanilla by Vibrant Health (.31 oz.)- value $1
YumEarth Naturals Sour Beans (.7 oz)- value $.80
YumEarth Naturals Fruit Snacks (.7 oz)- value $.80
PureGreen Protein is a powder derived from vegetables that has the amino acid ratio of human muscle. It’s an alternative to protein powders derived from whey and egg albumin.
I love YumEarth Naturals candies. They’re vegan and organic, and free from gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, and artificial colors and dyes. I think they’re a great alternative to less natural candies, and their natural flavors are terrific.
Verdict: This is my first Vegan Cuts Snack Box, and I enjoyed it. The box was packed to the brim with treats, and I feel I discovered some great new Vegan snacks. The value is a little over $15, which is less than the $19.95 monthly cost. I think this box would be a great choice for those looking to discover new vegan products, but I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone in search of a high-value food box.
