All of the snacks they send are deemed “healthy” and don’t contain preservatives, harmful additives, or artificial sweeteners.

Mariani Sweetened Dried Cranberries, 0.5 oz. – Buy two 5 oz. bags for $11.88
I love cranberries and these dried ones are a great little snack pack for when I’m out and about, too busy to stop for food. It’s the perfect time of year to munch on these tart red fruits that are packed with nutrients and antioxidants.
Yomms Snacks in Nutty Chia, 1.3 oz. – Buy two 12 oz packs for $23.88
Ermegerd, these are sooo yummy. The pecans are caramelized in sugar and rolled in sesame seeds and chia seeds! This is another wonderful Fall snack. I ate this small bag immediately and then demanded I get more, to no one in particular. I guess this is where Alexa or Google Home comes in handy, right? I shout out snack demands and they are delivered to my doorstep?
RXBar in Peanut Butter – Retail Value $2.29
As far as protein bars go, I like the RXBar and have actually purchased them before. They have simple ingredients and no weird chemicals. The peanut butter flavor is really rich and this dense bar has no gluten, soy, or dairy to be found. Plus, they have nice minimal packaing to match their minimal recipe.
MadeGood Vanilla Crispy Squares – Buy a box of 12 for $11.39
Holy cow, these are just like a rice krispy treat except all organic and contain vegetable nutrient extract from stuff like spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, beets, and shitake mushrooms! You can’t taste ANY of that, but just knowing they’re in there while I am enjoying this sweet crispy snack makes me feel ultra-healthy. How’d they get this to stay so gooey and chewy though??
Duke’s Chorizo and Lime Smoked Shorty Sausages, 1.25 oz. – Buy a 5 oz. bag for $6.89
Whoa- these taste just like taco seasoning! Tacos are my number one favorite food, and cured sausages like these are pretty high on my list, so these are a total win! You definitely taste the lime flavor that lends even more to the taco-ness of these lil sausages. They’re not too moist, and not too dry. Yummy!
Peanut Butter and Jelly R Bar – Buy a 10 pack for $17.50
R Bar is similar to RXBar in name and in the way they approach a simple ingredients list. There are only three ingredients in this protein bar: dates, dry roasted peanuts, and raisins. For this reason, you can imagine how close to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich this comes, but minus the mess that may come with it. This would be a good co-pilot for the holiday road trips coming up.
Dulce de Leche and Caramel Balance Bar, 1.41 oz. – Buy a box of 6 for $6.03
Comparatively, the Balance Bar has waaaaay more ingredients than the previous two protein bars. It’s soft granola-bar-esque body has been dipped into several different flavors and then drizzled. There is an explosion of caramelly sweetness all over. This one is a bit too sweet for me, but if you like diguising your protein with decadent flavors, this is the one for you.
Wonderful Roasted and Salted Pistachios, 1 oz. – Buy a 12 pack for $12.60
How can you go wrong with pistachios? They’re kinda fun to eat, even though a bit involved, and are a classic snack when you need some protein. They’ve been roasted and dusted with salt, so I can’t resist popping these in my mouth to get my salt fix before peeling them open to eat.
Munk Pack Double Dark Chocolate Protein Cookie, 2.96 oz. – Retail Value $2
My friend Kelly tried some of this cookie and described it as “not tasting like a protein cookie”. It’s soft and it doesn’t stick to your mouth like other similar cookies do. The double dark chocolate flavor really packs a chocolately punch, so if you’re craving something decadent while you’re trying to get your protein in, this is a good choice.
Barnana Organic Coconut Chewy Banana Bites, 1.4 oz. – Buy a 12 pack for $21.99
Barnana is a “Super Potassium Snack” that comes in little protein cubes. The ingredients are simple: banana and coconut, both organic. These are similar to ones I received in last month’s SnackNation box but have the addition of dried coconut to give a little texture and coconut flavor to the banana. These look a little more appealing than the original banana bites too, if you ask me. 😉
Tropical Chips Lime Plantains – Buy similar 60 ct for $25.09
I’m not the biggest fan of plantain chips, even though I feel like I always finish a bag when one comes in a box. These are a level-up because they’re lime flavored! That REALLY brings something to the table, I’ll tell you. These chips are salty, and the lime makes you pucker, yet I keep going back for more. I am really into these, which is a slight surprise.
Lillie’s Carolina Dirt BBQ Kettle Chips, 1.6 oz. – Buy a case of 36 for $40
I’m a big fan of BBQ chippies, and these are hecka hardy and crunchy! They’re a touch sweet and aren’t overly seasoned, so you get a mild but delicious BBQ flavor. They also won’t stain your fingers orange. I’ll have to keep an eye out for Lillie’s!
Late July Sea Salt Multigrain Tortilla Chips, 1 oz. – Buy a 6 oz. bag for $3.34
I ate this whole little bag with the salsa from Degustabox this month, and it was awesome! These seem to be healthier since they’re multigrain but are still crunchy and salty: both things I want in a tortilla chip. The chips are nice and thick too, so they won’t break when being dipped.
Pop Chips Ridges in Buffalo Ranch, 0.7 oz. – Retail Value $1.49
When I die, coat me in buffalo sauce and bury me in an oil drum of ranch dressing, please. These chippies are surprisingly spicy for not being labeled as such! I can take some heat, but these make me want to drink some milk afterward! Highly recommended for anyone who loves buffalo sauce!
Go Lite! Sweet Maui Onion Popped Chips, 0.875 oz. – Buy a 3.5 oz. bag for $3.55
I’m not into onion flavor or things that are sweet but salty. These are both of those things but are super light and airy like you’d imagine. They’re made with cassava, which I had to google (it’s the same as yucca). I’m going to have to stick with potato, or at least try a different flavor of these to get on board.
Verdict: SnackNation was packed with all sorts of healthy snacks. I liked MOST of them, but a few were a miss for me. Discovering new snacks that aren’t bad for you is a great experience and I like that they include a lot of different protein bars that I can supplement a breakfast for since I am the laziest person alive. Those Yomms pecans were my number one this time around I’m actually looking forward to ordering more. For $24.99, I received 15 items which is a great deal in my opinion, because those protein bars alone retail for more than the average cost of $1.66 here.
