SnackSack Vegan March 2018 Review
SnackSack includes a card that notes all of the products that are within the box, along with how to find them online. This is always super helpful when navigating your box, and also a great way to find how to purchase more.
Sometimes they also include coupons for a few brands whose items are included in that month's box. This month, there's a coupon code provided for Protein Toppers.
Every first-time customer receives a tote (sack), which is meant to hold your snacks. Perfect for packing lunches or trips to the grocery store!
Big Slice Cinnamon Toast Kettle Cooked Apples, 4.5 oz. — Retail Value $2.50
This first snack is certainly appetizing! While the packaging markets it as a healthy snack, I would argue that it's more like a healthier version of an indulgence. It basically tastes like apple pie filling, but a little less thick, and with 17g of sugar it's definitely a treat I'd consider a dessert. Either way, super yummy and definitely something out of the ordinary!
popchips Peanut Butter Nutter Puffs, 1 oz. – Buy 24 for $24.99
Speaking of 'out of the ordinary', these peanut butter puffs are a totally new concept to me. My household is passionate about PB across the board, so we were clawing at this bag of puffs! Turns out they're decent, but a little bland. We found them to be good, but not great—but again, interesting a fun to try.
Lundberg Family Farms Himalayan Salt Red Rice Quinoa Chips, 1.5 oz. - Buy 24 for $34.53
Gotta love a good tortilla chip! These red rice & quinoa chips are still largely corn-based, but at least they're whole grain. I just picked up some homemade hot sauce from a coworker today and dipped these chips right in. They're lightly salted, crunchy, and very delish!
Good Karma Chocolate FlaxMilk + Protein, 10 fl. oz. — Buy 12 for $30.00
I've had Good Karma FlaxMilk before (a different flavor) and really enjoyed it other than how super-sweet it was. This version has 10g of protein and 15g of sugar, so still sweet but in a more traditional chocolate milk-y kind of way. Flax milk is an acquired taste—it's rather earthy—but a great non-dairy milk to try for those on the market.
Artisan Tropic Sea Salt Plantain Strips 1.75 oz. – Buy 16 for $29.99
This is such a coincidence—I just tried plantain chips elsewhere for the first time this past weekend! I'm not a big fan of plantains served hot...they want to look like a banana and want to taste like a potato, but they just don't manage to do either very well. But, in chip form, I'm all for plantains! They're similar to other root veggie chips, which I already know I love, and are delightfully salty.
Chinook Seedery Dill Pickle Sunflower Seeds, 1.5 oz. – Buy a 4 oz. bag for $2.50
Back when I was a kid, my neighbor and I took ballet together, and after each class, we'd walk across the street and pick up sunflower seeds from a small shop. I've had sunflower seeds since then, but not the kind you have to shell like these. So these are such a throwback for me! The shells are dusted with a dill flavoring, which is fun for a little something different.
Vegetarian Traveler Toasted Bean Blend Tri-Soy Medley, 1.23 oz. – Buy 4 boxes of 3 for $23.99
I've received toasted beans in my Graze boxes before but usually blended with seeds or nuts or dried fruit. It never occurred to me to eat the dried beans any way other than straight out of the packaging, but the included card (which I showed above) suggests adding them to all sorts of meals, like stir-fries, soups, salads, stews, and beyond. Such a great idea and a great protein boost! Can't go wrong with a bit of crunch.
Frooze Balls Plant Powered Energy Balls, 2.5 oz. – Buy 8 for $19.99
I've tried my hand at making vegan energy balls in the past, and quite honestly they turned out very similar to this snack. These guys are made with clean, simple ingredients including raw dates, raisins, sunflower seeds, coconut, and peanuts, which makes them suitable for paleo and keto diets on top of being vegan, gluten-free, and kosher. Protein for everyone! I'm not a huge fan of cherries, so the dark forest flavor isn't my fave, but they're still a good sweet snack that's rather guilt-free.
The GFB Coconut Cashew Bar, 2.05 oz. – Buy 12 for $24.69
This bar doesn't quite pass my test of having more protein than it has sugar (it has 11g of protein and 12g of sugar), but it's close! The consistency is chewy and substantial, with a flavor that's both nutty and sweet. I found it a little too rich to each in one sitting, but that just means more to enjoy later.
TeaSquares Tea Infused Energy Snack, 0.7 oz. – Buy 3 2.25 oz.packs for $11.99
These little energy squares are really cool! By being flavored with green tea, they're naturally caffeinated and offer 4g of protein with 4g of sugar. To me, the flavor seemed subtle and not-too-sweet, with a light and airy consistency and a cool texture. Something different for me!
TRUWOMEN You're Mocha Me Cocoa Protein Powder, 0.96 oz. – Buy 10 for $17.49
My husband and I have tried a lot of different protein shakes and are always—like many others, I'm sure—searching for the perfect powder that's high in protein, low in sugar, and doesn't taste super fake. This one was pretty good! We mixed it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and shared it after a workout (we couldn't figure out how/why it's geared toward women as we couldn't find any ingredients that men should avoid, that we know of). It was good! It definitely tasted sweeter than we expected for only having 1g of sugar, which I believe is due to the Stevia. To the best of my knowledge, our bodies process sugar-like products the same way they do regular ol' sugar, but oh well, we enjoyed this mix!
Verdict: I so enjoyed this month's Vegan SnackSack! It was filled to the brim with snacks I've never tried before—some were different flavors of brands I know and like, while others were totally new concepts like the PB puffs and green tea matcha energy bites. I like that this box is generally health conscious, but also includes some less strictly healthy options to explore. I have already made a list of snacks I might like to purchase more of on my own!
