Here’s a close-up of the burlap sack.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
