The name “Raw Crunch” says it all– this bar is a solid amalgam of nuts and seeds with some dark chocolate chunks here and there. If you’re a fan of nuts you’re sure to like this.
Raw Crunch Bars are handmade, gluten free, and certified organic. I didn’t really taste the blueberry and lemon flavors but I still enjoyed it overall. This is definitely a snack that can carry you over to the next meal.
I will eat just about any matcha flavored food these days and this was no exception. It’s a dense but soft and chewy cookie that’s packed with flavor. The matcha flavor actually wasn’t very noticeable but I liked it nonetheless. There are three cookies total.
This has a strong mint chocolate flavor and the consistency is reminiscent of chocolate fudge. The texture was so surprisingly dense that just a few bites filled me up.
Artisan Tropic Cassava Strips: Sea Salt 1.75oz – $1.99
This was my favorite item from the box. Artisan Tropic is a family owned business based in Charlotte, North Carolina that makes healthy tropical snacks. These cassava chips are delightfully crunchy with the perfect hint of sea salt. I’m not sure if I can go back to regular over-salted potato chips now…
Artisan Tropic Plantain Strips: Naturally Sweet 1.75oz – $1.99
My boyfriend ran off with this one and said it was “really satisfying.” He really liked the semi-sweet taste, the thickness of each chip, and commented on the high chip-to-air ratio in the bag. Then he asked for more.
I’m very excited to try this, maybe to make for a party in the future. There’s a recipe for making muffins or cake on the back of the bag. All Paleo Baking Company mixes are gluten, grain, dairy, refined sugar and soy-free.
Verdict: This month’s curation was great. You don’t even need to be on a Paleo diet to enjoy and appreciate the snacks. However, the value adds up to about $21.65. This is slightly more than half the cost of the box plus shipping. I don’t expect food subscriptions to have high value, especially not one that seeks to find unique snacks for a Paleo diet. Paleo Krate advertises 8-10 snacks per box while I only received 7, so maybe the low value this month is unusual. That said, I cannot justify paying almost $40 for $22 worth of snacks.
