Vegan Cuts Snack Box June 2018 Review

I think Vegan Cuts has really stepped things up lately in terms of snack box curation. Let’s see what they sent for June:

The box came with this information card detailing the items in the box.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Coupon

There was a coupon this month for Softer Than Brittle, a snack that was also included in this month’s box. Sometimes there is more product literature, sometimes less.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Brittle 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Brittle 2

Softer than Brittle in Pecan, 2 oz – Buy 5.5 oz for $5.50

This is kind of flaky and really sticks in your teeth. It does have a nutty flavor but we couldn’t specifically identify “pecan” in there. That is not to say it wasn’t enjoyable, though! I think we have had this in peanut flavor before and I would not be opposed to getting it in additional flavors in the future (it also comes in almond and cashew).

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Cereal

Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal in Coconut Chai, 2.3 oz – Buy a 12-Pack for $47.99

I gave this one to my husband because it had something like 270 calories, which is way more than I can dedicate to a single serving of packaged oatmeal. He said it was “curry like” and then further qualified that that was not a bad thing if you like curry spices (which he does).

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Cherries 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Cherries 2

Stoneridge Orchards Montmorency Cherries, 1 oz – Buy 5 oz for $5.99 (found on sale here for $4.99)

This is a repeat item for me. Not necessarily from Vegan Cuts, but I have definitely received these from Love with Food a time or two. I do like dried cherries and getting them in a small package like this means I don’t eat too many at once. (I used to order non-branded dried cherries from Amazon, four pounds at a time…)

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Coffee

Kimera Koffee, 1 oz – Buy 12 oz for $21.95

I don’t enjoy the taste of coffee, but my husband likes it so I passed this along to him. He says this is decent for an American roast (maybe if you like coffee that will have meaning to you?) but didn’t necessarily notice any differences in focus or energy levels (but maybe that is because all we did after he drank it was go grocery shopping…).

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Crackers 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Crackers 2

Plant Snacks Vegan Cheddar Cassava Root Chips, 1.5 oz – Buy 5 oz for $3.99 (found on sale here for $2.71)

These are cassava chips so they are vaguely cracker or potato chip like (i.e., starchy). For what it’s worth, I remain firm in my conviction that nothing called “vegan cheddar” and seasoned with yeast extract tastes the least bit like actual cheese. However, if you are vegan or have a dairy allergy, I guess this is as close as you can get. That’s not to say these are bad – they are nice and savory and a bit salty and would be a good side with a sandwich at lunch time.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Drink

Rise Brewing Co. Lemonade Nitro Cold Brew Coffee, 7 fl oz – Buy 12 Cans for $31.49

Coffee again. This is another one I gave to my husband. He was not a fan (although he does generally like cold coffee drinks). He says, personally, coffee and fruit don’t go together.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Jana Banana 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Jana Banana 2

Jana Banana with Peanut Butter, 1.34 oz – Buy 12 Bars for $13.90

We got these in Love with Food a month or two ago. They have a pretty simple ingredients list and could be a good way to get some of the nutrition from a banana when it’s not convenient to carry a fresh one around. I am usually a fan of things with peanut butter and banana and that was the case here, too.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Mulberries 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Mulberries 2

Sunny Fruit Organic Mulberries, 1.06 oz – Buy 5.3 oz for $8.50

We got some Sunny Fruit apricots last month (I think) and I was a fan. They were some of the best-dried apricots I’ve had. I am not as big of a fan of these mulberries, but I don’t think it’s the quality (these are the same high quality with a nice degree of moisture as the apricots), I think mulberries are just kind of weird to eat on their own. I’d suggest stirring these into oatmeal or baking something with them instead.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Nutter 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Nutter 2

Popchips Nutter Puffs in Peanut Butter, 1 oz – Buy a 4 oz Bag for $3.99

This is another item I’ve previously received in Love with Food. I like them. They are gluten free and have a starchy and kind of soft base (compared to, say, Snapea Crisps) and are a bit oily on top, probably from the peanut butter. It’s a little bit like eating a peanut butter sandwich on white bread in a puff form if that makes sense.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Protein

MRM Veggie Elite Performance Protein in Chocolate Mocha, 37g – Buy 1 Pound for $29.99

I don’t drink protein shakes. I just don’t like the texture, especially when the protein is plant based (it doesn’t blend as well as whey). However, I do regularly put a little protein powder in my morning smoothies, so that is where this went. I think blending this with my other smoothie ingredients moderated the coffee part of the mocha enough to where I didn’t mind the flavor. This is non-GMO and gluten-free if that is of concern for you.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Rawcha 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Rawcha 2

Rawcha Chocolate Chip Coconut Bar, 30g

This appears to be a British product. I found a site where it is sold, but it is currently out of stock with no price listed. This has matcha in it as well as some other superfoods (turmeric, moringa, baobab). But you mostly notice the coconut and a little chocolate so they’ve done a decent job at actually creating an edible flavor for a snack with all those superfoods in it.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Rise Buddy 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Rise Buddy 2

Rise Buddy in Sea Salt, 1.4 oz – Buy a 12 Pack for $18

This brand has been making the rounds of food subscription boxes lately. I actually got this exact same item in Fit Snack Box this month (review coming soon). These are baked whole-grain rice crackers. I have to say, I am more excited about some of the other flavors as these are pretty plain. However, if you had some kind of dip or hummus, these would work pretty well as a delivery mechanism for that.

Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Spread 1 Vegan Cuts Snack June 2018 Spread 2

Lekkco Dark Chocolate Spread, 2 oz? – Buy 14.1 oz for $9.99

This is really just several different forms of sugar with chocolate. I never quite know what to do with chocolate spreads like this. They are definitely not appropriate for sandwiches (I have been there and done that and a chocolate sandwich is not actually as good as it sounds). I do think this would be good with bananas and might actually improve the flavor of plain rice cakes (but I only had cheese-flavored rice cakes so I couldn’t test that out). I just ate some with crackers but I really think it might be better with fruit or something.

Verdict: This month’s Vegan Cuts Snack Box had 13 items for an average value per item of about $1.77. That is a little steep for a few of the smaller items, but there were some larger items that helped the average a bit, so I guess it works out. There were quite a few items I’ve seen in other food subscription boxes lately (cherries, Jana Banana bars, Nutter Puffs, Kimera Koffee, Rise Buddy crackers, protein powder) but a few new discoveries as well. I wouldn’t say there was one item I was over-the-moon excited about, but I appreciated the mix of item types and think this is a pretty representative box for this subscription.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first box would be July’s box, but some of the products may be available from the Vegan Cuts shop. Check out our latest spoilers!

Value Breakdown: At $22.95 for this box, you are paying about $1.77 per item.
