Here’s a close-up of the burlap sack. There are even more treats stuffed inside it!

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Multigrain

Multigrain Tortilla Chips from Food Should Taste Good (1 oz.)- $.73

I recognize this packaging, but I don’t think I’ve ever tried any of the products from Food Should Taste Good. I’m a fan of these chips. They’re gluten-free and made with brown rice, flax, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and quinoa. The flavor is excellent, and they have a nice level of saltiness.

Rosemary Truffle Popcorn by Pop Art Snacks (1 oz.)- $1.75

I’ve sampled Pop Art Snacks Popcorn before thanks to subscription boxes. It’s become a favorite of mine, and I really like their unusual flavor combinations. (They make flavors like Tandoori Yogurt, Nori Sesame, and White Cheddar Jalapeno.) I can’t resist truffle popcorn, and I like that Pop Art adds rosemary into the mix, too.

Sweet & Tangy BBQ Power Puffs (.5 oz.)

BBQ puffs are a new discovery for me, and I was excited to see them in my SnackSack! The flavor is a little sweet, a little smoky, and a little spicy.

HomeFree Chocolate Chip Cookies (1.1 oz.)- $1.37

I’ve sampled HomeFree Chocolate Chip Cookies before, and I think it’s hard to believe they’re gluten free. They’re crisp, chocolaty, and have great flavor.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Boulder

Sea Salt & Black Pepper Kettle Chips from Boulder Canyon (1.5 oz.)- $1.36

Boulder Canyon chips are non-GMO certified and gluten free. I think their chips are great, and I like the combination of salt & pepper on the chips.

Lightly Salted Veggie Straws (1 oz.)- $1.16

I love veggie straws, and I buy this brand often. They deliver the same salty crunch as potato chips but contain a little less salt. They’re also gluten free, non-GMO, and cholesterol free.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Snapz

Dried Apple Crisps (.46 oz.)- $1.49

(I can’t find the exact product I received online, so I’ve linked to a different flavor.)

Crispy dried fruit is a great guilt-free snack, and these apple chips have great flavor.

Kameda Wasabi Crisps with Peanuts (.88 oz.)

This snack from Kameda is baked (not fried), all natural, cholesterol free and contains no MSG, preservatives, or trans fat. I’m a fan of the flavor, though I find the wasabi flavor to be fairly mild. (I don’t get the “big kick” promised on the packet.)

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Kutoa

Tropical Fruit Fusion Mix (1 oz.)- $1.40

This tropical fruit snack blends bananas, pineapple, mango, and coconut with ginger and cocoa nibs. I’ve never seen a dried fruit mix with cocoa nibs, but I like it. The added crunch adds a nice textural diversity.

Kutoa Blueberry Almond Bar (48 g.)- $2.08

I’ve tried a few different Kutoa bars. This Blueberry Almond is okay, but I think the Peanut Butter & Jelly is my favorite.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Pur

Pur Spearmint Gum (9 pieces)- $1.69

Pur makes aspartame-free chewing gum in a variety of flavors. I’ve purchased their gum before, and I’m a fan. Unfortunately, spearmint isn’t my favorite flavor, but I’m sure it will still get chewed.

Honey Stinger Energy Gels in Vanilla and Fruit Smoothie (1.1 oz. each)- $2.78

Honey Stinger makes a range of honey-based energy products. I’ve tried their waffles and chews before, and I’ve been extremely impressed with the quality and flavor of their products. The gels are tasty, too. I tried the Fruit Smoothie gel (the flavor is like a light, fruity honey), and I’m planning to save the Vanilla gel for my next hike.

Snack Sack Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Coupons

SnackSack also included a handful of coupons and promo cards. One of the coupons is for $10 off any purchase from the Pur gum website, which had me pretty excited. Unfortunately, shipping is $9, so the savings aren’t as great as they initially seemed.

Verdict: This is my third SnackSack, and I’ve been pretty impressed with their boxes. They send a good variety of tasty products, and I think their packaging is great. I couldn’t find a price for all of this month’s items online, but I’d estimate the total value of this box to be a little under $20. The value of this box might be a tad lower than their previous boxes, but that’s bound to happen from time to time. I’m pleased with the selection of items I received, and I discovered some delicious new snacks. I would happily recommend this subscription to anyone looking for a well-packaged, junk-free snack box!

Have you tried SnackSack?

  1. Those tortilla chips are so good with hummus!

  2. I have a really hard time justifying the price of most of the food and cooking boxes. With discount codes I think it’s an okay deal because I do love the experience of trying new things that I maybe wouldn’t try… But I hate spending $23 a month on a tiny snack box when I could buy family size snacks for the month from the grocery store for the same price (or less), and the same goes for cooking subs. $130 for 2-3 meals for each person is steep. They justify it by saying you’d spend more going out to eat, but I’m still cooking it myself and could buy the same ingredients for $30-60 myself. I’m one of those who buys boxes because of the bang for your buck. Food boxes don’t seem to have it.

    • I agree with you there! There are a few snack boxes I’m considering trying (like Universal Yums or 30 Days of Candy) but those are for the experience of trying new things that I probably couldn’t get elsewhere, not stuff I could go down to Whole Foods or Target and get on a day to day basis like a lot of these other snack boxes.

      And I agree that the meal delivery services are so expensive for what you get! You still need food for lunch and dinner on top of the $150 a week for dinners (for not all days of the week too)!

    • I think pricing and value is largely dependent on where you live. For people in large cities where produce and meat are extremely expensive, the 6 weekly meals can be a big bargain. We did Hello Fresh for 8 months and I priced out the ingredients at our local store. It cost $18 more to buy ingredients on my own. Plus there is value in having someone plan your menu and prompt you to try ingredients you never would have considered otherwise. HF is only $69/week for 2 people (it’s a waste for our kids so we don’t even bother; we save them for adult-only nights when the kids have games/practice and eat the meals I premake and freeze on Sundays).

      Now with snack boxes I am yet to see the monetary/bargain value. We do subscribe to Japan Crate but only because we lived in Japan and enjoy getting to have some of our past favorites. So e are available in Chinatown but most aren’t. We also tried Mantry a few times. It’s pretty much the only one where I felt there was legitimate curation involved. But even still I couldn’t justify $75 for just curation and 4-5 food items, wonderful as they may have been.
