Paleo Life Box Subscription Box Review – July 2015

This box was sent to me at no cost for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Paleo Life Box includes a card detailing the items in the box.
Bubba’s Vanilla UnGranola (6 oz)- $8.99
Oats are a no-no for paleo dieters, so grain-free granola is a popular, paleo-friendly replacement for the traditional oaty version. “Ungranola” is a mix of almonds, coconut flakes, cashews, honey, and vanilla. Bubba’s recommends mixing it with some fresh fruit and coconut milk for a delicious paleo breakfast.
Lemon Pie Coco-Roons by Wonderfully Raw (6.2 oz)- $7.99
I received Brownie Coco-Roons in a previous Paleo Life Box, but I much prefer these. I think the lemon flavor is well pronounced (without being overpowering), and the flavor of the lemon and coconut together does remind me a little bit of coconut & lemon meringue pie!
Goji Spice Supernola (2.75 oz)- $3.50
Supernola is another grain-free granola product. This one is made with nuts, seeds, goji berries, black lava salt, cinnamon, and red maca. Even though there are two paleo-friendly granolas in this box, they’re quite different. Bubba’s Ungranola is toasted and crunchy, while Supernola, on the other hand, is much softer.
Megaroon Macaroon by Rickaroons (no weight listed)- value $2.08
Rickaroons’ Megaroons are a healthier take on classic coconut macaroons. They’re made with a combination of coconut, almond butter, chia seeds, and cocoa nibs.
Hyper Hawaiian Crunch by Thunderbird Energetica (1.7 oz)- $2.13
Thunderbird Energetica’s Hyper Hawaiian Crunch Bar is made with buckwheat, mango, papaya, pineapple, prunes, and raisins. It’s vegan, raw, made with no added sugars, and is free from gluten, soy, and agave. I like this flavor combination, and I love that this bar is fat free!
Pecan Persistence Bar by Thunderbird Energetica (1.7 oz)- $2.13
“Gather” bars are full of seeds and nuts and are “inspired by the diets of our ancient ancestors.” This Pecan Persistence bar is made with dates, pecans, almonds, pistachios, and a mix of dried berries. It’s low in sugar, grain-free (of course), and high in Omega-3s. Last month, I received a Superseed Spirit Gather bar in my Paleo Life Box. It was good, but I prefer this one.
Grass Fed Beef Bar by Brick’s Bars (1.5 oz)- $3.75
Brick’s Grass Fed Beef Bars are made with tender beef, chunks of uncured bacon, chopped cranberries, raw sunflower seeds, and black pepper. They’re gluten, milk, and soy free and contain essential nutrients, Omega 3s, and 10 grams of protein. I’ve always enjoyed jerky, but Paleo Life Box has introduced me to a whole new world of meat snacks! Both this bar and the Epic Bars (featured in previous Paleo Life Boxes) have really interesting flavor combinations that I think are delicious and exciting.
Cacao Mint Date & Nut Bar by Kur (.88 oz)- $1.99
Scandinavian Kur bars are much smaller than most other bars on the market. At .88 oz, they’re really only big enough for a bite or two. They’re made from dates, nuts, and cacao and don’t contain any sweeteners, syrups, or soy. I really like the Cacao Mint flavor, and I think the small size makes this a perfect choice for a quick energy boost between meals.
Paleo Life Box also included promotional materials from a couple of the brands featured in this month’s box.
Verdict: I like that Paleo Life Box sends boxes heaping with full-sized paleo snacks. The value this month comes in at $32.50. This is a little less than the value of last month’s box, but it’s still in the break-even range with the discounted monthly cost of a 3 or 6-month subscription. I’ve been fairly impressed with Paleo Life Box, however it’s important to mention that there is a fair amount of brand repetition. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing (if you don’t mind trying new snacks or flavors from brands that have been featured previously), but it’s something to keep in mind if you’re considering subscribing. If product discovery is a top priority, this may not be the best box for you. However, if you’re looking for a shipment of paleo-friendly snacks and don’t mind a little repetition, I would recommend checking out Paleo Life Box.
