Here’s the list of items in this month’s box.

Here’s a close-up of the burlap sack.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review + Coupon - June 2015 - Peas

Organic Peas Please by Peeled Snacks (3.3 oz)- $2.99

I love crispy pea snacks, and I’m happy to see this baked version in my SnackSack. They’re delightfully crispy, and I like that each serving contains 5 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and 15% of the RDV for iron.

Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Smart Cookies by Bitsy’s Brainfood (2.13 oz)- $2.49

Bitsy’s Brainfood makes a range of cookies baked with “hidden” veggies. The crispy Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are pressed into alphabet shapes, and they have a delicious cinnamon oatmeal flavor. I couldn’t pick out the flavor of the sweet potato (which is probably a good thing for a kid’s snack). I also like the way these cookies are packaged. The box reminds me of animal crackers and is perfect for sending in a kid’s lunchbox.

Honey Stinger Strawberry Waffle (1 oz)- $1.39

Honey Stinger Strawberry Waffles sandwich strawberry flavored honey between two waffle cookies. They’re certified organic and really tasty!

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review + Coupon - June 2015 - Seedz

Somewhat Spicy Superseedz (1 oz)- $2

Maple Sugar & Sea Salt Superseedz (1 oz)- $2

I’ve sampled Superseedz before, but both of these flavors are new to me. I love pumpkin seeds, and I’m a fan of both flavors. I ended up mixing them together, and the mix of sweet & spicy was delicious.

Everything Savory Bar by Sheffa (1.27 oz)- $1.39

Everything bars were also featured in this month’s Love with Food boxes. They’re difficult to describe. They’re crumbly, savory, and taste a little like a block of crunched up crackers. I tend to prefer salty snacks to sweet ones, and I thought this was a really tasty, albeit unusual, snack. Savory bars come in a number of different flavors, and this “Everything” bar contains sesame seeds, poppy seeds, toasted onion, and roasted garlic (the classic toppings on an everything bagel).

Dark Chocolate Granola Bar by Sheffa (.85 oz)- $.99

The Sheffa Dark Chocolate Granola Bar is a more traditional snack. This bar is a mix of gluten free oats, dark chocolate, and hazelnuts.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review + Coupon - June 2015 - Figs

Baked Chickpeas by Chic-a-Peas (2 oz)- $2.29

These baked chickpeas are flavored with cucumber and a hint of jalapeno. I like snacking on crispy chickpeas, but Chic-a-Peas also suggests using them to add crunch to salads. I think this is a great idea!

Turkish Mini Figs by Fruit Bliss (1.76 oz)- $1.39

Fruit Bliss Figs are certified non-GMO, organic, vegan, and kosher. They’re sweet and crunchy, with just the right hint of sweetness.

Stretch Island Fruit Strip (.5 oz)- $.47

Each Stretch Island Fruit Strip contains ¼ cup of fruit and is non-GMO verified. I’m a fan of fruit leather, and I like the summer strawberry flavor SnackSack selected for this month’s box.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review + Coupon - June 2015 - Gum

Go Raw Zesty Pizza Sprouted Flax Snax (.5 oz)- $.92

This is a snack that I would never purchase on my own, but I really like it! The herby tomato flavor is really good, and it does actually remind me of pizza.

Gomacro Cherries + Berries Bar (.9 oz)- $1.29

Gomacro mini bars are organic, vegan, soy free, and kosher. I like the flavor and also the compact size.

Mini Glee Gum (5 mini boxes)- $1.65

Glee Gum is fair trade and non-GMO. Each box in this SnackSack contains two pieces of candy-coated gum (similar to Chicklets). I like the variety of flavors, and I think the little boxes are too cute.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review + Coupon - June 2015 - Coupon

SnackSack also included a handful of coupons and promo cards.

Verdict: I’m really impressed by this shipment from SnackSack! I enjoyed the products they selected, and I discovered quite a few new snacks. The packaging was a joy to unwrap, and I especially liked unpacking the burlap sack. It reminded me of going through my stocking at Christmas! In terms of value, the cost of the items included just about breaks even with the month-to-month cost of the box, so I’m happy with that. Based on this box, I would happily recommend SnackSack to those looking for a well-packaged, junk-free snack box!

  1. This box looks really good so I think I’m going to give them a try.

  2. While not directly relevant to the fish oil-cookie discussion, I wanted to add for those with severe food allergies that some organic versions of dried fruit, particularly bananas, may be treated with a shellfish or sesame spray as a natural preservative. At the moment the FDA doesn’t mandate disclosure of the coating as it’s not considered an ingredient. Imported non-organic regular bananas are even more likely to be treated with the shellfish “shellac.” I learned this lesson the dangerously hard way and only discovered the connection from an email from the national Food Allergy Network (FAN). So now I basically avoid dried fruit and only eat real bananas that my husband thoroughly cleans first.

    • Probably the shellfish-derived compound is chitosan. I work at a patent law firm doing chemistry/biotechnology work and let me tell you, that stuff is hard to avoid.

      You can get fungal chitosan, too, but it isn’t used nearly as often. Probably a matter of supply and demand. The shellfish stuff is derived from the parts of crabs, shrimp, etc., that no one eats anyway, so it’s just extracting one more dime out of a waste product.

      • Also, you can get a food dehydrator and make your own dried fruit. It’s not quite the same as the packaged stuff but you’d know everything that went into it.

  3. Where is the coupon?

    • Hi Sara, sorry for the confusion! Let me check on that for you.

    • Do you know if June is still available or would I be ordering for July?

    • Try coupon code ADDICTION10. It should save you 10% on any of their plans.

  4. They don’t only sneak veggies into those cookies, they sneak FISH OIL into them. I got them in another box once and I am so glad I read the ingredients first. It’s kind of weird to use fish oil for the omega-3s in cookies, I would’ve expected flax or something. Oh well. Other than that, it looks like a pretty good box.

    • Good catch, Ragan, and thanks for sharing that with everyone. I don’t normally check to see whether cookies are vegetarian or not, but perhaps I’ll have to start!

      • When I got them last time (in Bestowed, maybe?), I gave them to my fiance. He said they were good. I’m not sure how enthusiastic he is about being the dumping ground for all non-vegetarian food from subscription boxes, though. He puts up with my little hobby, at least. (I think he likes the Raw Spice Bar experiments, even though they’re quite time consuming.)
