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 they include many new-to-me healthy snack options. I like that they sometimes include coupons and they always have an information card. This month, the information card lists the value of the products, which is a new addition.
Mrs. Thinster’s Cookie Thins – Listed Value $0.61
I’ve tried these in the past and they’re quite good. I always enjoy getting them since they’re pretty low calorie for a sweet treat!
Coffee Blocks – Better Butter Coffee – Value $2.99
This is a new one for me. I know butter in coffee (and oil for that matter) has been popular in the past few years, but it’s never appealed to me. This product has butter, coconut oil, and eggs in it. I tried this as they recommend, with a mixture of room temperature and hot water. Apparently if you use too much hot water the egg will congeal…not appetizing. It wasn’t bad, but I couldn’t get past the mental block against butter, oil, and eggs in my coffee.
Bite Fuel Power Bites Protein Cookies – Peanut Butter – Value $2.50
These protein packed peanut butter cookies were pretty good! They were a little less ‘cookie’ like than normal peanut butter cookies – they lacked that little snap and crunch when you bite into them. The flavor was excellent though!
Zinc and Vitamin C – Tropical Fruit Flavor – Value $1.66
Honey and Eucalyptus and Vitamin C – Honey Flavored – Value $1.66
Dr. Pops lollipops are”a therapeutic range of lozenges on a stick which are specifically formulated for children.” The company says that these are an easy way to up your children’s vitamin C intake and build immunity.
These lollipops are relatively small (a bit larger than a cough drop, but much flatter) and the stick is quite short. These would likely be great for tiny little hands, but they were a bit clownish in mine. The flavors were great, but I can’t comment on the benefits of them!
The pita chips in this ensemble were delicious. When I used to eat hummus, I loved Wild Garden’s hummus and roasted garlic was my favorite flavor! I did have a friend try the hummus and they enjoyed it quite a bit.
Dippin’ Chips – Veggie – Value $0.64
These were really great – I enjoyed the flavor, they were crisp, and sturdy enough to be paired with any dip!
Crunchy Rob’s Brand – Himalayan Pink Salt Popcorn – Value $0.99
This popcorn was really solid – quite good, had the perfect texture and was nice and salty! I loved the new flavor of the pink sea salt on top – it’s a subtle change from the usual.
Earnest Eats Apple Ginger Trail Bar – Value $1.75
This trail bar was great. I loved the flavor and the fact that they are wheat, soy, and peanut free. (There are other allergens, so be sure to read the ingredient list). It was very moist and the almond butter was a great inclusion.
Torie and Howard Chewie Fruities – Listed Value $1.59
I’ve long sung the praises of these fruit chews – the flavors are more ‘grown-up’ than Starburst, they’re chewy, and packed with flavor. I love these and that’s not changing any time soon!
Bite Fuel Protein Granola Trail Mix – Red Berry – Value $1.09
This trail mix has cranberries, cherries, and almonds packed inside, along with 10 grams of protein per serving. I really enjoyed this!
Verdict: This month’s SnackSack has a value of approximately $18.15. The info card that SnackSack provided gave a few different values than I found online – their total came out to $21.72. That is a pretty small difference, but either way the value of this box is definitely below the cost every month.
With that said, I always enjoy the product mix and I’ve been loving this box since I have had some health issues and have to avoid certain foods – there’s usually a good amount of my SnackSack that I’m able to eat, and I love getting it each month!
