One of the first things you will notice is this super helpful information card that lists included product names and values. Another nice-to-have item in the box is a nifty burlap sack to haul your goodies around or store ‘em in your kitchen. Ohhh, I get it now… snack sack.
Wise Popcorn Sea Salt Air-Popped Popcorn, 0.5 oz. – Value $0.25 (buy a 1 oz bag for $0.50)
This popcorn was light and well-seasoned. I loathe too much salt or butter — give me healthy popcorn any day.
Made in Nature Choco Crunch Figgy Pops, 1.6 oz. – Value $1.66 (buy a 4.2 oz bag for $4.35)
With their sweet date and fig composition, these ‘energy ball supersnacks’ sort of reminded of Larabars. 3 were included in the package, and each was about 1.5 inches in diameter. Loved the coconut coating on the outside!
Made in Nature Tropical Fusion Dried Fruit, 1 oz. – Value $1.16 (buy 5, 1 oz packages for $5.79)
This little packet of dried fruits wasn’t my favorite of all the snacks included, but it would be terrific for someone who’s big on tropical flavors. The mix includes organic banana, pineapple, mango, coconut, ginger, and cacao Nibs. The bag doesn’t feel very substantial, so I wouldn’t dub this a sufficient go-to if you’re hungry.
Mrs. Thinster’s Cake Batter Cookie Thins, 0.6 oz. – Value $0.43 (buy a pack of 12 4 oz bags for $34.68)
These wafer-like cookies were way crispier than I was expecting! They were also very broken up in their package… I think there was only 1 in tact leaving lots of delicate crumbs that tasted JUST like yellow sheet cake.
Kitchen Table Bakers Oven Baked Parmcrisps, 0.5 oz. – Value $1.03 (buy a 9.5 oz bag for $19.65)
Speaking of crunchy, these parmesan were a delight. I’m a big fan of salty, savory snacks, and I could imagine these being amazing with a glass of wine. Add them to a salad for a little bite.
Kala Beautiful Beans in Tropical Curry, 0.75 oz. – Value $1.44 (buy a 5 oz bag for $9.62)
Can’t say I’ve ever tried a dried fava bean before today. But, ya know what, I was into it! I’d compare them to dried chickpeas which makes sense because… bean family. These have a subtle curry lime flavor that was really nicely balanced.
Dang Salted Cacao Toasted Coconut Chips, 0.7 oz. – Value $1.02 (buy a 2.82 oz bag for $4.11)
Ah, coconut is always the way to my heart. These coconut chips were super chocolatey, but you could still taste the natural sweetness of the coconut. I’d buy these in a second, and they’d be perfect for times when I want chocolate without actually opting for a big piece of it (which I tend to do).
Raw Rev Glo Protein Bar, 1.6 oz. – $1.07 Value (buy a pack of 12 bars for $12.89)
As far as protein bars go, this one was really lovely. The peanut butter, dark chocolate, and sea salt provided a nice balance of sweet and salty.
Rigoni Di Asiago FiordiFrutta Organic Fruit Spreads – Listed Value $1.20 (buy an 8.82 oz jar for $6.25)
I’ve never tried this organic fruit spread, but I’ve seen it before in stores. The sample packets were labeled ‘Strawberries & Wild Strawberries’ and ‘Apricot,’ but I actually received apricot in both. Not my first choice, but it was good. I had a hard time figuring out what I’d use it for though. Maybe paired with some nice cheese or as a topping on pancakes.
Banza Cheddar Chickpea Mac & Cheese, 5.5 oz. – Value $2.95
Gluten free pastas are something that I’m familiar with, so I was excited to see some mac & cheese in this month’s SnackSack box. This turned out to be a pretty typical-tasting bowl of mac & cheese, and it definitely hit the spot. Be careful not to overcook — chickpea pasta can easily become gummy.
Bakery On Main Bunches of Crunches Granola, 1.1 oz. – Value $0.54 (buy 11 oz bag for $5.43)
This granola is jam-packed with healthy, gluten-free grains. Love that chia seeds are in there! This convenient little packet would be great to toss in your bag as an emergency snack.
Peanut Butter Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams – Listed Value $1.20 (buy 16 oz jar for $4.99)
I was expecting this peanut butter to be a little more chocolatey and decadent for some reason. It was great, but it doesn’t divulge much from your standard peanut butter flavor. Awesome on toast with some bananas or strawberries.
Xylichew Peppermint Chewing Gum – Listed Value $1.99 (buy a 2.75 oz package for $7.67)
Okay, so, I really loved this gum, and I’m sort of confused as to why I’m so obsessed with it. The peppermint flavor was spot-on, and it lasted forever. Not too strong. Just really nice.
Vegan Rob’s Wild Rice Supergrain Mini Waves, 1.5 oz. – Value $1.88 (buy a 5 pack of 3.5 oz bags for $21.99)
Loved these as an alternative to potato chips. They are equally as crispy and satisfying but don’t deliver much in the flavor department. Really great if you don’t mind chips that taste healthy.
Verdict: This month’s snacks total up to $17.82, which is below the $22 price tag. Considering that you’re also paying for the convenience of sampling different brands, I would call SnackSack a good value if you love healthy snacking (make sure to use our MSA25 coupon to save 25% off if you decide to go for your first box)! My June favorites were the coconut chips and parm crisps, but I can’t wait to see what future months have in store.
