I really am enjoying this subscription. The brands and products they include are new to me, they have great curation and balance between salty and sweet, and I don’t have to worry about eating a ton of empty calories. This is definitely a great ‘better for you’ snack box. I really like that they usually include coupons, and they always have an information card!
There are always quite a few snacks included, so let’s get to the good stuff!
Oogies Chipotle Lime Popcorn – $1.26
This popcorn has a very light flavor. It is really good and if you’re a bit afraid of chipotle spice-wise, this popcorn is not spicy.
I could tell these were good for me when I started eating them. The flavor was decent, but the texture was not my favorite.
This was really good, and it is pretty good for you! It has 4 grams of fiber, 550 mg Omega-3, and real fruit. This would be an awesome light breakfast when you’re on the go, or a nice filling snack in between meals!
Nibmor Cherry Chocolate Bar – $0.91
This is outstanding. It is definitely dark chocolate, but the cherry flavor comes through so nicely, and complements the dark chocolate perfectly. I feel like I could eat a lot of this chocolate, and get myself in big trouble!
IHeartKeenwah Quinoa Clusters – $1.99
These are really good! They are very crunchy, and sweet. This would be a good option if you’re craving something sweet, but want something with a bit of nutritional value as well.
Sensible Foods Roasted Edamame – $3.50
Edamame is not my favorite snack, so take my words with a grain of salt. It has 70 mg of salt in the entire container, which was really shocking to me because I didn’t taste salt at all. I thought “Hm, this must be no sodium added,” checked and was in for a surprise. All in all this snack was decent for edamame. If you are an edamame lover, try this one! It was roasted all the way through, and very crunchy which was nice.
FlyJoy Peanut Butter Jelly Time – $1.99
This was good! I tasted the peanut butter much more than the jelly. These are gluten free, non-GMO, vegan, soy free, and Kosher. They only have 8g of sugar (which isn’t bad for most energy bars), 5g protein, and 5g fiber. I think I’ll be checking out this brand’s other offerings!
Laiki Red Rice Crackers – $1.25
These are really good! They taste so similar to Wheat Thins that I was kind of surprised they just have rice, oil, and salt in them! These are a great alternative cracker for those who are gluten free!
Trujoy Sweet Fruity Chews – $0.25
These are not my favorite fruit chew – the paper stuck to the candy, and the candy was incredibly difficult to chew. I received some Torie & Howard Chews in another box a while back and much preferred those in texture. The flavor of these was very good, but they were so hard to chew I couldn’t enjoy them!
Chosen Foods Chia Bites – $1.33
These are really good! They taste almost like sugar cookies in health food form. The vanilla flavor comes through very strongly. They have a high content of omega-3, 4g protein, and less than 6g of sugar per serving.
This was good, but I could tell it was healthy for me, if you know what I mean. I would definitely eat it again, because it’s better than most healthy cookies by far. It is raw, gluten free, vegan, and soy free. My information card stated that I was receiving the lemon poppyseed flavor, so this must have been a substitution. I enjoyed it, and would love to try the other flavors.
Gorilly Goods Fruit & Nuts – $1.88
This was really great! The texture was awesome, it was chewy and crunchy at the same time, and the flavor was amazing. It is organic, raw, gluten free, and vegan! I really tasted the banana.
Flamous Spicy Falafel Chips – $3.69
These have no: gluten, wheat, dairy, lactose, trans fat, cholesterol, MSG, hydrogenated oil, preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, nuts, soy, or shellfish. They also list organic and non-GMO ingredients only. They are really good! I think they would be delicious with hummus. The texture is very similar to a tortilla chip, and there is a bit of spice!
Oogies Tomato & Parm Popcorn – $1.26
This is absolutely delicious. The sun-dried tomato and parmesan flavors both come through great! The flavor is much stronger in this one than was in the chipotle & lime bag I also received in this shipment.
Verdict: This SnackSack comes out to $24.32 in value. I think that is excellent. I receive so many snacks from this box that I have never heard of before. Yes, sometimes there is a bit of overlap in their products, like this month I received two bags of popcorn. I honestly do not mind this – it is giving me options to try multiple healthier snacks, and I like trying them all!
Have you tried SnackSack? If one of your resolutions was to try to eat healthier – this would be an awesome box to try out for snack foods!
