FitSnack Box May 2018 Review
This box usually contains some ready-to-eat snacks and a few pantry items:
Usually there is an information card with a product listing and a workout on the reverse side, but I didn’t receive one this month. Instead, there was some product literature for one of the items in the box:
Freezinda Protein Powder Frozen Dessert Mix – Buy 5 Packs for $14.95
This is something I tried for the first time last month, in BuffBoxx, so you can see pictures of it prepared here. You mix this with protein powder and water and freeze and you get a frozen dessert out of it. Although a blender is not required, I’d definitely recommend one (a stick blender or hand mixer would be fine) for a better texture and consistency as well as thorough mixing. I found this to be acceptable and edible, but not as tasty as something like Halo Top (though it is probably cheaper than Halo Top).
Sun Butter (16 oz) – Retail Value $5.99
I am familiar with this product from other food subscription boxes, but I have to say, this is the first time I’ve received a whole jar. This is peanut free and made from sunflower seeds and does have the texture of creamy peanut butter, although the flavor is obviously not the same. My husband has been using this for after-work snacks in the same ways you’d typically use peanut butter. We will honestly probably stick to peanut butter, ourselves, but if you have an allergy or your kid goes to a peanut-free school, this does allow for a very similar experience in terms of sandwiches, cookies, etc.
These are compatible with Paleo-style diets (including Whole30) and are made from grass-fed, non-GMO beef that is not treated with antibiotics or hormones. You will occasionally get meat sticks and other non-vegetarian snacks in Fit Snack Box. Since I can’t eat this, and my husband is not really a fan of meat stick-type snacks, I’ve put this out on the “free snacks” table at work, where I’m sure it will disappear quickly, as I work in an office full of carnivores.
Chomps Original Turkey Snack Stick (1.15 oz) – Estimated Value $2.29
The turkey variety isn’t on the Chomps site, nor can I find it for sale anywhere else. It is possible this is a new item; sometimes you do receive new items that are just released or not yet released from FitSnack Box. At any rate, I’ve given it the same value as the beef stick from the same brand. This is another one for the “free snacks” table at work, where I’m sure it will be quite popular.
Zone Perfect Nutrition Bar in Chocolate Peanut Butter (0.72 oz x 3) – Buy 30, 1.76 oz Bars for $27.19
These are not full-size bars but, on the other hand, you get three of them, which is more than enough to decide if you like them. These are honestly about what you would expect for a bar associated with a diet company. The chocolate and peanut flavors are decent but you just know the soy protein “nuggets” (rather like Rice Krispies in texture) are there to bulk it up with a bit of air to make it feel like you are eating more.
Herbaland Protein Gummies (50g) – Buy a Case for $32
It is not entirely clear how many packets are in a case. (As an aside, companies really need to be better about providing that information. Case prices can be good or bad and it kind of depends on how many individual items you get!) Also, every flavor appears to be sold out right now except banana. But the above link is where you *would* order the item, if it was available. I have had these before, from Vegan Cuts, and they *are* vegan, so no worries about gelatin. The protein is pea protein. These have a texture less like gummies and more like Dots candy or something similar, but they are honestly not too bad for pea protein-based food.
Soloman Baking Co. Millet and Flax Chips in Cinnamon and Sugar (6 oz) – Retail Value $4.99
These are super low in calories per serving (only 70). I also like the texture; it’s not so hard or rustic for something made from millet and flax. And the cinnamon sugar coating was probably my favorite part. I’d be interested in seeing more items from this company (which was new to me) in future boxes.
Verdict: The May FitSnack Box had 9 items (counting the Zone Perfect bars separately), which makes the average cost per item about $2.88 (figuring a $19.90 cost for the box + $6 shipping). The Freezinda product is definitely appropriate for this box, and most people won’t have tried it already, and the millet and flax chips were a definite highlight. There were enough higher-value items (like the sun butter and millet/flax chips) to make the value average out.
