Keto Krate October 2018 Review
I try to follow a keto-based diet most of the time. It really helps me keep my blood sugars stable and allows me to snack without having to give boluses (of insulin from my pump) as I graze. Just to clarify: I still have to use insulin, but the fewer carbs I eat, the less insulin I have to use. I’m always excited to try new snacks and condiments that are suitable for keto since they are some of the hardest items to find.
Instead of including an info sheet detailing the products and a monthly recipe, the information has been digitalized! Subscribers can head to krate.club in their browser to get the full details on everything sent this month.
A coupon for Keto BHB from RSP is also included.
Sugar Free Hemp Brittle by Curly Girlz Candy, 2oz – Retail Value $5.79, Listed Value $5.99
Let’s start off with my favorite snack of the box. This brittle is packaged perfectly for a snack serving and has 0 net carbs (total carbs – dietary fiber and sugar alcohols)! I wouldn’t even know it was a “health food” had it not come in this box. It’s caramelly and chewy just like regular brittle but without the crash.
Organic Sugar Free Dark Chocolate by Macalat, 42g/1.5oz – Listed Value $4.89 (buy a box of 12 for $58.68)
I think this is a good option for when I need a bite of chocolate, but I can’t see myself eating a whole bar for warm, fuzzy feelings. The 70% cacao dark chocolate is dairy, stevia, and soy-free and uses erythritol for sweetness. It is a bit smoother than other sugarfree dark chocolates I’ve tried but has a weird aftertaste. I’ll just stick with some regular dark chocolate and hope for self-control.
Cheese Lover Original by Intakt Snacks, 1oz – Listed Value$3.75 (Buy a pack of 4 for $14.99)
I love cheese puff snacks and I was hoping these would be similar. They are made of just dried cheese and are gluten-free. The texture is hard and crunchy but doesn’t have much flavor. I think this would be a good alternative to croutons or crackers for soup though. But, if you did want to eat the whole bag straight, there are only 2g carbs for the whole bag.
Every once in a while I crave a noodle dish and we typically make spaghetti squash or Shirataki noodles (aka feet noodles, ha). These veggie noodles are made from peach palm hearts and have only 6g net carbs per pack. They are already soft, so you just pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes or onto the stovetop for 5. I didn’t notice any weird flavor since I’m used to slathering my noodles with sauce and parmesan to cover that up anyway. They are a bit expensive compared to my normal options though.
Grass-Fed Beef Stick Bites by Mission Meats, 4oz – Retail Value $7.99
Yum! These are delicious. The bites are made with 100% grass-fed beef, water, and a bevy of spices so they satisfy my need for a savory snack. I’d say these are just like the typical beef bites you know, but they are actually better. With no added sugars and high-quality ingredients, plus a charitable brand, each pack has 28g protein and only 4g carbs!
Savory Parmesan Krackers by Pywiack Krackers, 3oz – Retail Value $4.99
These may look like bird seed blocks, but they are super tasty, crumbly crackers. Almonds, chia seeds, and flax seeds are packed together with spices and parmesan to give these a savory, kicky flavor. Only 6g net carbs per bag mean I can eat the whole thing if I want. And, I do.
Original Smoked Beef Stick by Landcrafted Foods, .9oz – Listed Value $2.49 (Buy a box of 20 sticks for $49.80)
Anyone up for a fancy Slim-Jim? Well, here you go. The difference is you’ll find only 100% grass-fed beef and spices in this stick, no fillers or grains. It’s easy to carry in my purse and I like that I can eat it without getting my hands greasy. Even though this is the original flavor, it has some spice. I’m interested in what their spicy version would be like!
Salted Caramel + Pecan Protein Bar by Bhu Foods, 1.6oz – Listed Value $2.50 (Buy a box of 12 bars for $29.99)
Nope, nope, nope. I’m so picky about protein bars and this one just isn’t my thing. Even though salted caramel is one of my favorite flavors, I couldn’t taste it at all over the protein taste. It is nice that there are still chunks of pecans to gives it some texture.
Hazelnut Instant Butter Coffee Pack by Burnbutter – Listed Value $2.49 (Buy a box of 8 pouches for $14.99)
If you’re keto, than you probably have tried Bulletproof coffee or something like it. It’s when you blend grass-fed butter, coconut oil, and MCT oil (if you’re fancy), into your hot coffee. It gives you a ton of healthy fats for energy and natural sweetness from the whipped butter. I love the idea of on-the-go packs like this. The flavor was good but I miss the frothy part. Without the blending action, the oil just kind of floats on the top of my mug. I’d recommend getting a handheld frother for your desk or even just squeezing this into your blender with coffee for a quick solution.
Hillside Mix – Pumpkin Seeds and Kale by Gorilly Goods – Listed Value $2.79 (Buy a box of 12 for $33.48)
High five to Keto Krate for all of the delicious savory snack this month! This mix is made of pumpkin seed and kale with some kicky seasonings for a subtle but delicious crunchy snack. Only 3g net carbs and lots of nutrients make for a great afternoon treat. Plus, Gorilly Goods gives part of their proceeds to protecting gorillas in the wild.
The Verdict: Since I follow a keto diet (albeit, a lazy one), I loved having a curated selection of keto-friendly snacks delivered. The savory snacks were awesome and I’m going to be purchasing some more of that brittle for sure. The only thing I won’t eat is that protein bar. Going off of retail and listed values, this box is worth $46.58 which is only a few dollars higher than the cost + shipping. But, the value is there for me because I’m able to try a variety of snacks that I know will fit my diet. Plus, I’m not playing hit-or-miss with whole packages of snacks from the store. I don’t think you’d find the same value if you weren’t trying to be low-carb though. I’m hoping for some condiments in upcoming months since those are a tough find.
