Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs: Vegan White Cheddar, 1 oz. – Value $1.32
These crispy puffs were super tasty. Each puff is a bit more substantial than the orange cheese dust-covered version that we’re all familiar with (and not to mention healthier). They have a satisfying denseness with each crunch, and the white cheddar flavor is spot on. Love!
Hungry Buddha Coconut Chips: Pumpkin Spice with Turmeric, 1.4 oz. – Value $2.75
Bring on the pumpkin flavored everything. I’m by no means a fanatic of this seasonal favorite, but I can definitely get down with the occasion PSL and pumpkin pie slice, of course. Being that coconut chips are one of my favorite snacks, I was thrilled to give this flavor a try. It didn’t disappoint! The chips are delicate with a wonderful crunch, and the pumpkin/turmeric coating is subtle enough to add a bit of richness to the already creamy coconut flavor.
Teapigs Licorice and Peppermint, 1 tea bag – Buy 50 bags for $14.58 from Nutriglow
First impression: the NAME. What? I love it. This tea is refreshing with just a touchy of anise-y natural sweetness from the licorice. I don’t normally add anything to my tea aside from the occasional lemon wedge with black or green varieties, but, if you’re the kind of person who normally adds sugar, you definitely don’t need it with this tea. The bags are also adorably pyramid-shaped! Another thing worth noting: I’m not sure how accurate the pricing is here since I kept finding a package of 50 tea bags in the $30-$50 range in addition to this rogue $14.58 package. It’s a UK brand, so I bet that has something to do with the variation in pricing being that I’m located in the US.
Kashi Chocolate Almond Sea Salt Chewy Granola Bar, 1.2 oz. – Buy a box of 6 bars for $2.99 from Target
Granola and protein bars are some of my favorite items to receive in snack boxes. It’s just so convenient to throw them in your bag for a midday pick-me-up (and I need a lot of those these days). This one is delightful. I love a sweet and salty combo, and, while I wish that the saltiness came through a bit more than it did, this bar was nicely balanced and satisfyingly chewy.
That’s It Bar: 1 Apple + 1/4 Coconut, 1.2 oz. – Buy a box of 12 for $16.50 from Advantage Nutrition
More coconut! Yessss. It’s awesome that these bars have so few ingredients. I would’ve never thought that I’d enjoy this combo so much, but it really works. I’m excited to try some of That’s It’s more unique bars like Pear Ginger and Apple Blueberry.
Herbaland Protein Gummies, 50g – Buy a case of 12 50g pouches for $32.01 USD
Whoa — the concept of protein gummies is new to me and very cool! Each of these 50g pouches contains 28g of fiber and 10g of protein. Apparently, these are ideal for muscle recovery and growth post-workout. I’m 9 months pregnant and not exactly doing strenuous cardio like I used to, but I’m excited to give these a try again a few months. Their texture is sort of grainy and heavy but not in an off-putting way.
Crazy Richard’s 100% Peanut Powder, 0.42 oz. – Buy a pack of 8 0.42 oz. packets for $19.96
Peanut butter powder can get kinda weird, in my opinion, so I’m typically not huge on it. However, I like the idea of it having so many uses. The back of this package suggests several: blend it, mix it, bake it, shake it, stir it, top it, and drink it. I love the idea of adding this into a shake or mixing it into cookie dough for some extra protein (6g per serving).
Verdict: UrthBox continues to impress me with its quality vegan treats! This month definitely skewed on the sweet side, but that was good news for my recent sweet tooth. I’d much rather opt for a naturally sweet fruit bar rather than on over-processed candy bar. For $19.99, I received 7 snacks at a value of $2.86 per snack. Considering the small portions of most items, I’m not sure that this is entirely worth it. However, this month did have quite a few stand-outs. I loved the chickpea puffs, coconut chips, and both bars. Plus the protein gummies and peanut powder were interesting to test out, and I did end up enjoying those too! This is a great box for adventurous vegans and healthy snackers, overall.
