SnackNation December 2017 Review
Normally SnackNation comes with a page that explains their whole deal, but it was absent this month. I don’t miss it too much since it doesn’t detail the snacks included anyhow.
Deep River Mesquite BBQ Potato Chips, 1 oz. – Buy a case of 80 for $41.23
I love these chips! I think I’ve had them before on my own, and really enjoy the sweet BBQ flavor. They’re also really crunchy since they’re kettle cooked. These certainly didn’t last long in my house.
Another delicious chip! If you told me I’d be loving chips made from navy beans, I don’t think I’d believe you, but here we are. I’ve received another kind of these chips in the past, but these hint of lime ones are really flavorful and limey!! I’d definitely buy a whole bag of these to dip in homemade guacamole. YUM.
You can’t swing a cat in a room full of snack subscription boxes without hitting a few bags of brownie brittle. Even though everyone seems to like these, I can’t get into them. I think they are just too dark chocolately for me or something. It won’t be hard for me to find someone to pass these to.
First of all, have you ever seen a chip bag as cute as this one? It’s like a cute little newspaper about veggie chips! I love it. These are REALLY crunchy and not very salty at all which can be good and bad. I am a fan of saltiness, but it’s probably better for me if I don’t eat as much. I feel more wholesome just eating these.
Nature’s Bandits Organic Mango Apple Fruit Stix, 1 oz. – Buy a box of 16 for $18.99
Wow! These are packed with mango flavor and mellow out to apple. Super soft n chewy but a touch tart, these little fruit strips are super tasty and happen to be gluten-free and vegan as well as GMO-free. Plus- cute raccoon!!
Caveman Sweet & Smoky Chicken Bites, 1.1 oz. – Buy a case of 12 bags for $27.50
I got these back in October as well and can’t tell if I like them or not. I put them in my mouth and chew, and am like “these are kinda weird and not that great” but then I find myself continuing to eat them. There is something strange hitting the back sides of my tongue with these that tastes obscure. I’m checking the ingredients to find coconut sugar, maple syrup, and celery juice powder, so maybe it’s one of those. At any rate, these are a good snack to punch some protein into you when you don’t have time to sit down to eat.
Quinn Touch of Honey Pretzels, 1.5 oz. – Buy a 7 oz. bag for $5.79
Darnit, another snack I can’t stop eating! These little pretzel sticks are too addictive! They’re made with whole grain, brown rice, potato, and tapioca flour so they definitely have a “healthy” taste to them, but I don’t mind at all. They’re dusted with the perfect amount of salt too.
Tasty Brand Organic Fruity Gummies, 2.75 oz.
Gummies are the best, aren’t they? Everything in here is organic and they taste like I’m biting into juicy fruits (not the gum). The wild berry flavor they’ve included is free from artificial flavors and high fructose corn syrup (like all of the flavors), so you’d probably rest assured these won’t be bad to pop in a kids lunch for a sweet afternoon treat. I wasn’t able to find these to buy online, so I’m not sure of the value here.
Clif Whey Protein Bar, 1.98 oz. – Retail Value $2.49
I know I am loving everything so far, but holy moly this Clif Whey Protein Bar is outstanding! I would straight up eat this instead of a candy bar, it’s that good. The puffy peanut butter goodness on top is crispy and crunchy, and then it’s dipped into chocolate for the perfect marriage.
Rise Breakfast Bar in Crunchy Cashew Almond, 1.4 oz. – Buy a box of 12 for $17.99
This little bar is packed with almonds, cashews, amaranth, and crisp rice, being held together with sweet dates and honey. It’s firm yet chewy bar and had just the right amount of sweetness. This is a good snack to keep tucked away to ward off mid-afternoon snack attacks.
Enstrom Almond Toffee Milk Chocolate Bars, 1.5 oz. – Buy a case of 24 for $42.96
Straight up? I ate one of these two little chocolate toffee bars while photographing it because I couldn’t help myself. Heath Bars are one of my favorite candy bars (even though I’ve been made fun of for it by young people) and these are like a gourmet version of that. There’s a thick bar of toffee, that then has almonds on top and has been dipped in milk chocolate. Yeaboi!
Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds, 3/8 oz. – Buy a 1 oz. package for $1.39
You can never go wrong with smoked almonds, and Blue Diamond knows what’s up. These are smoky and delicious with a generous dusting of salt. This portion is just enough for me since too many almonds can make my tum hurt.
Sheffa Dark Chocolate Granola Bar, 0.85 oz. – Retail Value $1.09
This granola bar is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO and has no trans fats, but it’s also pretty yummy. As soon as I bit into it, I thought it tasted like a healthier version of a chocolate Rice Krispy treat! Not bad!
R Bar in Lemon Poppyseed, 1.6 oz. – Buy a 10 pack for $17.50
As I was photographing this, I took it out of the package to discover that this bar had “turned” (I will spare you the photos). The use-by date on the package is 7-6-18, so it was well within its date and there was no way for SnackNation to know. However, I felt like I should let them know in case this was a bad batch (Lot #17187). Their customer service got back to me the same day and was immediately apologetic and refunded the full cost of the box. They also assured me that they removed this product from their online store and boxes, just to be sure. It’s never fun to get an unusable product in a subscription box, but I think the way the company handles it says loads about them and SnackNation did a great job. It’s a shame because I do enjoy R Bars and was excited to try a new flavor, but stuff happens!
Skinny Dipped Almonds in Dark Chocolate Cocoa, 0.46 oz. – Buy a 24 pack case of this size for $20.00
I am game for more almonds, especially if they are coated in chocolate! This li’l bag has a nice amount to just nip your sweet tooth in the bud. The dark chocolate is rich and a little bit of sea salt make these all the more scrumptious.
Verdict: I am always pretty pleased with SnackNation. Their snacks are more on the healthier side than most other snack boxes, and they cover a pretty wide variety of protein bars, chips, fruit snacks, and nuts. I almost always find something new that I legitimately look for the next time I’m at the grocery store.
