Onnit Keto Box August 2018 Review
This box came with a detailed info sheet. We also received a “gift card,” which really just had a code for 10% off the Onnit website.
This month we also received a mini booklet with information on a vegan keto diet.
A coupon for Primal Kitchen was also included!
Onnit Powerfood Active in CochoMaca, 15.1 oz – Retail Value $38.50
I will be honest, I am not quite sure if I buy the claims this product makes—it states that “combining protein for your muscles, and a host of micronutrients to support your body, this is powerfood at its finest.” That doesn’t really jive with the nutritional info, where a serving contains only 3 grams of fat and 5 grams of protein. I know the keto diet is high fat, moderate protein, and low carb, but that seems just a bit too low. This is definitely low carb, as it has 2 grams of carbs but those two grams are dietary fiber so the net carb count is zero. I followed the instructions on the container and mixed it with 8 ounces of water before taking a sip, and then I promptly dumped it down the drain. This tastes exactly like your standard chocolate protein powder, except I hate chocolate protein powder. I do think it is impressive that this doesn't have any sugars considering it tastes comparable to other chocolate protein drinks that have lots of added sugar to make it taste palatable. This would be best in a smoothie with other ingredients to add more fat or protein as needed for your dietary concerns.
Front Porch Pecans in Habanero BBQ, 4 oz – Estimated Value $5.75 (buy a pack of 4 for $22.99)
I got to try the sea salt version of these pecans in my August Keto Krate, and I was happy to see these pecans in a different flavor. The pecans are awesome quality and a decent size, and the habanero BBQ flavor starts out mild with the heat building as you eat them. Per serving, these have 1 gram of net carbs, 2 grams of protein, and 22 grams of fat. Great snack!
Bunker Hill Chili Lime Crunchy Cheese Crisps, 2 oz – Estimated Value $3.75 (Buy a pack of 4 for $14.99)
These crunchy cheese crisps live up to their name—they’re crunchy and they’re cheesy! The ingredient list is simple, just cheese, chili powder, dehydrated lime juice, sea salt, and silicon dioxide (to prevent the cheese from clumping). I am not a big fan of cheese crisps like this, but since they appear so frequently in subscription boxes I am trying to get over it. I thought these had a nice tex-mex flair thanks to the chili lime flavor, and I would want to snack on these with some slices of chorizo for a flavor party in my mouth.
Kettle & Fire Miso Soup with Chicken Bone Broth, 16.02 oz – Retail Value $9.99
You know that thing where you say or type something, and then almost immediately you see advertisements for it and you feel like big brother is watching? That's how I felt when I saw this Kettle & Fire bone broth in the box! Literally, the day before I received this subscription I was on the Kettle & Fire website because I was looking to make some bone broth of my own! I don't care if you’re on a keto diet, Jenny Craig, or just an average joe—bone broth is SO good for you! It is different from stock because it is slow cooked for extended periods of time, which causes the actual bones to break down so your broth is rich with protein, collagen, and amino acids. This particular bone broth is made with organic ingredients and organic pasture-raised hens. I have a surgery coming up in a few months, and I am saving this to have some savory miso soup for my recovery after. If you’re interested in making your own bone broth, I recommend starting here! I cook mine in a crockpot on low for about 20 hours, and it makes the most incredible broth for homemade chicken noodle soup.
Pearson Ranch Wild Boar Jerky, 2.1 oz – Retail Value $7.99
Well, I can now no longer say I have never had wild boar! This jerky packs 12 grams of protein per one ounce serving along with one gram of carbs, and it comes in small squares in a resealable bag. I thought this jerky had a punch of heat thanks to red pepper, and overall I thought it was really tasty. I think this would make an awesome snack along with a few of the pecans from this month for optimal fat, protein, and flavor.
Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel Packets, 0.54 oz x 2 – Buy a 12 pack for $34.95
I got to try the Vanilla packet in my July Bless Box, and this box included a vanilla coconut and a chocolate coconut. I mixed this with a cup of hot chocolate and I actually enjoyed it. I am still not sure exactly what collagen is though—according to the info book this is formulated without sugar, dairy, whey, gluten, or soy, however that doesn’t exactly solve the riddle. Collagen is supposed to be good for my skin and can also promote heart health, but I am still not positive this is a supplement I need in my life.
The Verdict: I think the Onnit Keto Box has stellar curation! I find the products to be useful and tasty (ignoring my taste buds hatred of chocolate protein powder), and I liked getting a mix of pantry staples like the bone broth and the protein powder along with the snacks like the pecans and jerky. I do not follow exclusively a keto diet, but I do believe this box provides the tools to eat healthier without sacrificing flavor. The value of everything in the box except the collagen packets adds up to $65.98, which is right about $10 over the $55.95 cost of the box, including free shipping! It is a bit of a bummer that the protein powder was a miss for me considering it makes up a large cost of the box, but I also know I am very unique in not enjoying chocolate-flavored things.
