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 Gourmet Popcorn – White Cheddar – Value $1.27
I love white cheddar anything, so this was my favorite of the two bags of popcorn sent. Popcorn isn’t my snack of choice, just because it takes so long to get it out of my teeth, but it is generally a better for you choice than chips, so I appreciate having some yummy flavored popcorn around when cravings hit!
Oogies Gourmet Popcorn – Movie Lovers Buttered Popcorn – Value $1.27
I enjoyed this bag of popcorn – it was nice and buttery, and slightly crisp, just like popcorn should be!
I really enjoyed this ‘cookie’ but I wouldn’t really classify it as a cookie. With that said, I’m not sure what I would classify it as? A muffin top possibly? The flavor was delicious; one reviewer on their site compares it to an oatmeal raisin cookie, which I would agree with! These are vegan and packed with nutrients.
Organic Tosi – Cashew Super Bites – Value $2.83
Tosi is a brand I haven’t heard of before, but they have quite a selection of healthy eating products on their website. These Cashew Super Bites have a short ingredient list: Organic Cashews, Organic Golden Flaxseed, White Sesame Seeds, Organic Chia Seeds, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Sea Salt. For all that goodness packed into these bites, I found these to be pretty tasty! Good for you and delicious – a rare combination!
Sugar-free gum just doesn’t do it for me – it loses it’s flavor way too quickly. With that said, the watermelon flavor here was delicious, and I’m not usually a watermelon girl!
Eat Smart Snacks – Sea Salt Garden Veggie Crisps – Value $0.72
I really liked these crisps. There were three flavors: tomato, spinach and potato. I think I would prefer these with some sort of a dip to cut the saltiness, but I did really enjoy the flavors and the crunch factor.
Ocean’s Halo Sea Salt Seaweed Snack – Value $1.33
I am not a seaweed loving gal. I tolerate the stuff on my vegetarian sushi rolls, but I just don’t like the brine-y, salty…green flavor of seaweed. With that said, it is good for you, and this is a pretty decent seaweed snack!
You Love Fruit – Tart Peach Fruit Leather – Value $1.46
I’m just not a huge fan of these fruit leathers, and I seem to get them quite often. This flavor was OK, but nothing to write home about.
I enjoyed this granola. The maple and cranberry flavors came through fairly well, and I loved the crunch this added to my yogurt. This granola is gluten and diary free, non-GMO, and low in saturated fat and sodium.
Love Grown – Blueberry Vanilla Polar Puffs Cereal – Value $1.00
I thought these sounded delicious – blueberry vanilla cereal? Sign me up. When I was a kid I LOVED the Blueberry Morning cereal by Post, so I was expecting something with that delicious blueberry flavor. There is some of that, and if you aren’t used to super sweet cereals, this cereal might be excellent to you. I could definitely taste the bean/lentil flavor in these puffs. Honestly though, the cereal was quite good for being only 100 calories per serving with all of the other added benefits: wheat and corn free, dairy free, only 6 grams of sugar…etc.
Verdict: This SnackSack has an approximate value of $14.63, which is a disappointing $10.00 less than the cost of the box. With that said, I did enjoy the snacks sent, and SnackSack does a great job varying the snacks so that there is a blend of sweet and savory. I always enjoy the fact that SnackSack introduces me to new brands of healthy snacks, and really loved the vegan sweet potato cookie I received this month – I might just have to buy more of those!
