This bar is like a more decadent version of a similar bar I’ve had from KIND. It’s chock full of filling organic nuts and drenched in sweet, satisfying dark chocolate. It makes for an awesome afternoon snack, especially when my sweet tooth is tingling…
I’m a big fan of pepper. I love sprinkling it on my food and waiting a few extra seconds before I say “when” to the peppermill man at restaurants. This salt and pepper combo made for a great snack for me. I love anything that gets me to eat more hearty, healthy nuts instead of reaching for a chip.
This is a really clever idea! I looooove chocolate, but am trying to wean myself off of eating it too often. These chocolate-powdered nuts help curb that craving, and my body is grateful that I’m not having a candy bar or fancy coffee drink. Is it as decadent an experience as actual chocolate and peanut butter? No, but I did love munching through these tasty nuts.
More nuts! This is a combination of almonds, walnuts, cashews, raisins, cranberries, and more. It’s a great on-the-go trail mix type of snack that I bet would go great in a school lunch.
Wickedly Prime Dry Roasted and Salted Soft Shell Almonds, 1.25 oz – Value $0.87 (Buy a 30 pack for $25.99 on Amazon)
Prime has its own line of snacks now? Wow! These almonds were a neat alternative to peanuts, though I wasn’t wild about having to shell them. It’s not the effort involved—it’s just harder to enjoy them on the go when you’re making little crumbles everywhere!
I like pea crisps, though I think they’re an acquired taste—they have a very subtle bitter aftertaste, but texture-wise, I love their airy, crispy, crunchy bite!
I got Pop Corners in another subscription box a long time ago, and I just love ’em! They’re hearty and sweet like a corn chip, but they have a smoother consistency (not grainy or gritty). The lightly sweetened, gluten-free recipe is great for a sweet treat that won’t weigh you down the rest of the day. It really does taste like kettle corn!
Kettle Potato Chips with Avocado Oil in Chili Lime Flavor, 1 oz – Value $0.48 (buy 24, 1.5 oz. bags for $17.33 on Amazon)
Wow were these chips good! They’re light, crispy potato chips with just enough heft to give a good crunch. The flavor packs a pop—that lime has a real zip to it! My favorite thing is that these are made with avocado oil. It doesn’t impact the flavor in any way, but it feels better than something fried in a less healthy oil.
I’ve had all kinds of veggie chips before, but most end up trying to be a veggie version of a potato chip. These crisps were totally different—they’re chunky combinations of peas, black beans, and rice that have a hearty, lightly salted flavor and the consistency of a water cracker. I could totally see myself nab some of these from Amazon in the future!
Off the Eaten Path Hummus Crisps, 1.25 oz – Value $1.40?
I couldn’t find these listed on Amazon, so I’m pricing them the same as the other Off the Eaten Path product. These crisps had a TON of flavor packed into each bite. The taste reminded me less of hummus and more of a rich Italian focaccia bread with olive oil and basil. And the light chips were a tasty, satisfying crunch to enjoy.
Planters P3 Portable Protein Pack, 1.8 oz – Value $1.79
While I didn’t try the jerky in the middle of this pack (I’m a vegetarian, unfortunately for the jerky), the nuts and seeds were really tasty. I appreciate that this little to-go tray of protein-packed snacks could be so handy for folks heading to or from the gym, teens, and tweens heading to after-school practice, or just packing a more substantial lunch for work or school!
Verdict: For $9.99, I got $15.50 worth of hearty, wholesome snacks to discover. That’s even more of a good deal when you consider that you get the $9.99 back as a credit. I will say that this was a nut-heavy assortment, so if that’s not your thing, you may not love this box as much as I did. But especially as a vegetarian always looking for ways to get more protein in my diet, I found a lot of tasty products in this package!
