Paleo-Krate-Feb-2016-1

Every month comes with a Paleo Krate recipe card.

Raw Crunch Bar Organic Dark Chocolate – $2.50

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 Bar Organic Blueberry Lemon – $2.50

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.

Jenny V’s Paleo Snacks Matcha Cookies – $4.50

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.

RxBar Protein Bar in Mint Chocolate – $2.17

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.

Paleo Baking Company Paleo Chocolate Cake and Muffin Mix 7.3oz – $6

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.

What do you think of this month’s Paleo Krate?

  1. Do you know what happened to Paleo Krate? I have not received April or May shipments, two of three months I subscribed, and their Facebook page and Website no longer exist . . . Their was a notice that they were having personal problems.
    “Due to an unforseen personal issue there will not be a Paleo Krate being shipped out this month.
    As some of you know, Paleo Krate is run by two people and when things happen that are out of your control, there is little else you can do about it. We are currently away from the state and tending to a matter that requires our full attention. We apologize for the inconvenience There will not be a rebilling this month on the 10th and boxes will resume shipment next month in the first week of April.”

    • Same here. Charged me for 3 months worth of boxes, nothing ever arrived nor did I get a refund. I just found the guy, Matt Prince, on Facebook and sent him a message asking for the $ back. (I found this page by searching “Paleo Krate” just because I was trying to find some contact info. Glad to hear I’m not the only one who has no idea what happened to them!)

  2. Hi Nancy! Thanks for the review! Some of these look pretty tasty!

  3. That’s a shame. I was seriously considering purchasing this box, but it doesn’t make any sense to at the price.
