The box came with this information card detailing the items in the box.
Beanitos Black Bean Chips (1.2 oz) – Value $0.86
I get these frequently in snack subscription boxes. I like them, and I do sometimes buy them at Whole Foods when I am looking for tortilla chips. The chip is supposed to be bigger but these seem to have been crushed by a can of energy drink.
Beanitos White Bean Chips in Garden Fresh Salsa (0.7 oz) – Value $0.42
This is another item I have frequently received in snack subscription boxes, including from Vegan Cuts less than six months ago. I find the salsa flavor to be fairly mild and these can definitely handle a topping or dip.
Wowbutter (1.12 oz) – Value $0.56
This is peanut free (made from soy) and is supposed to taste just like peanut butter. I found that it *kind of* tastes like peanut butter (enough that it might be a viable alternative if your kid goes to a peanut-free school). But not exactly. Also, four of my cats got very excited when I opened this. They were all meowing and looking at me expectantly like I was going to give them a treat. I have no idea why, but it was hilarious.
Miracle Tree Moringa Ginger Tea (1 bag) – Value $0.27
I think Vegan Cuts must have a shipping container full of Miracle Tree tea bags somewhere. This is one of the better flavors (the fruit ones are kind of strange). It helps to take the tea bag out after a relatively short time. (Moringa is a tree that is supposed to have various health benefits.)
Dark Dog Energy Drink with Coconut Water (pineapple flavored, 12 fl oz) – Value $2.52
I think this is my third or fourth can of Dark Dog Energy Drink from Vegan Cuts. In fairness, they do send different flavors each time. I think the pineapple flavor of this one may be my favorite so far. Calories are not so bad, either, compared to something like Red Bull.
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal in Blueberry Hazelnut (2.5 oz) – Value $2.49
Here is another item I have received in many food subscription boxes. I do like having these on hand as an alternative to KIND bars some mornings. I ate this at work one day and enjoyed it.
Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar in Strawberry (2 oz) – Value $0.79
This is another item I have received in at least half a dozen food subscription boxes. (You get two of the little bars in one package.) I like these and have bought them from Amazon many times in the past (where they have lots of different flavors, including mango and lemon, not just the usual strawberry and raspberry).
Libre Naturals Granola Bar in Double Chocolate Chip (1 oz) – Value $1.19
This is a new brand for me. I don’t often eat granola bars (unless they come in food subscription boxes) but I thought this had a nice texture – not too hard – and the chocolate flavor was good.
Rawrev Glo Bar in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (1.6 oz) – Value $1.83
Ah, back to the repeats. I have gotten these in fitness boxes, vegan snack boxes, non-vegan snack boxes, etc. I have probably eaten a whole case worth in the past six months. They have an unappetizing appearance (my husband called it “the gray mass”) but they do taste pretty good and they’re not too sticky.
Navitas Naturals Cacao Tart Cranberry Nut Bar (1.4 oz) – Value $2.29
I like getting this brand in subscription boxes because it usually costs more than I want to pay at the store. This could be a good alternative to something like a KIND bar (those usually have honey and so are not vegan) if you are looking for it. I don’t remember too many cranberries; I mostly noticed the chocolate.
Tasty Brand Organic Fruit Snacks (0.8 oz) – Value $1
And another repeat item. These are pretty sugary so I wouldn’t eat them often (but then, the serving size is small). They have a nice combination of tart and sweet going on and a pretty good texture for a vegan fruit snack.
Vanilla Cocomels (3.5 oz) – Value $6.99
I like caramels of all kinds, even non-dairy ones like these. (Actually, these are probably the best non-dairy ones I’ve tried and yes, this is another repeat item for me.) I did worry a little bit about dental work but I found that my teeth were safe if I chewed very carefully and deliberately.
Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Raw Almond Butter (1.5 oz) – Value $1.50
This was a little chunky but I like that in nut butter. It paired very well with the maple carrot Smart Crackers I had left over from Love with Food.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $22.71 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Snack Box. That is pretty close to the cost of the box. I do feel the number of items was appropriate and I liked everything. I just wish there had been more unfamiliar or new items. I knew about Beanitos, Cocomels, Tasty Brand fruit snacks, Dark Dog energy drink, Rawrev Glo bars, Nature’s Bakery fig bars, Bob’s oatmeal, and Miracle Tree tea before receiving this box (mostly from past Vegan Cuts boxes) so there just wasn’t that much that was new to me.
