Keto Krate December 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.
Sometimes, they include product coupons like this $15 off on RealGoodFoods.com.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Keto Bark By Choczero, 6 1oz bars – Retail Value $6.99
This chocolate bark is so good and I’m thrilled that we received 6 individually wrapped packs. I really like the crunch from the peanuts and, since they are sweetened with monk fruit (no artificial sweetener or sugar alcohols) there is no weird chemical taste. Each bar has only 2g of net carbs so I don’t feel bad even when I need two for a major sweet craving.
Toasted Hazelnut Milk Chocolate By Coco Polo, 2.82oz – Listed Value $6.99 (Buy 5 bars for $27.50)
Last month, we tried the crispy quinoa version of this chocolate and really liked it. This month, we received the toasted hazelnut version, and though I like the crispy one better, this one is still good. It’s sweetened with Stevia but I can’t taste it and it has a nice creamy texture when it starts to melt. I’d love to continue trying all of the different flavors.
Brick Oven Pizza Protein Crisps By Shrewd Food, 21g – Listed Value $2.79 (Buy 8 packs for $14.99)
Pizza in cheese puff form… yes, please! These little puffs pack an impressive protein punch of 14g per pack with only 2g of carbs. They’re made of milk protein isolate and coated with lots of pizza seasoning for a cheesy, crunchy treat that won’t use up all your carbs. They even get all stuck in your teeth just like regular cheese puffs. Ah…nostalgia.
Buffalo Crunchy Cheese Crisps By Bunker Hill, 2oz – Listed Value $6.25 (Buy a 4 pack for $14.99)
One of the first snacks I tried when I jumped on the keto train was parmesan crisps. I love cheese so it wasn’t a hard transition for me. These are just like thick parmesan crisps with a kick of buffalo seasoning. They are really strongly flavored and will certainly make your breath fragrant, but they’re made of 100% real cheddar and only have 1g carb per 7 crisps. I love to use them as croutons in a buffalo chicken salad too.
Peanut Butter Cookie Mix By Good Dee’s, 8.7oz – Retail Value $11.99
This may be my favorite keto discovery yet! I had zero hopes that this mix would satisfy my cookie needs, but I was sooo wrong. It’s incredible! All I needed was an egg, some coconut oil (or butter), some vanilla extract, and 9 minutes of bake time. The end result was a sheet of cookies that were delicious with a texture better than my regular recipe for PB cookies. We stuck some dark chocolate Kisses in some of them for an even more decadent treat. Each cookie (out of a dozen) has 3 net carbs. I honestly think that, if someone didn’t know these were low-sugar, they wouldn’t be the wiser.
Vanilla Almond Bar By Stoka Nutrition, 54g – Listed Value $2.99 (Buy an 8 count for $23.92)
Uhh. This doesn’t have a bad flavor. Actually, it just doesn’t have any flavor. The specs look good – 4 net carbs, gluten-free – but this granola bar look-alike is just a crunchy piece of cardboard. I will say, it has good ratings online, so maybe it just isn’t my thing.
Cheddar Bacon Almonds By Legendary Foods, 1.5oz – Listed Value $2.75 (Buy a 12 pack for $27.99)
In my opinion, almonds need some added flavor. The tough thing is that most flavorings have lots of hidden sugars. Not these cheddar bacon dusted nuts. They have lots of flavor and no added sugars. My only issue is that they are super dry because the coating is so thick and dusty.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar By Keto Bars, 47g – Listed Value $2.50 (Buy a 10 pack for $24.95)
I always run into a “nope” in Keto Krate and this is it for this month. Even less tasty than the Stoka bar, this guy has a dry, gritty texture and taste like pure sweetener. The grit sticks around even after chugging water too.
Chocolate Chip Cookies By Fat Snax, 40g – Listed Value $2.99 (Buy a 6 pack for $17.99)
As far as snack cookies go, these aren’t bad! There are 2 cookies in the pack, which always feels like a win. The soft texture and subtle flavor remind me of the cookie part of a Little Debbie Chocolate Chip Creme Pie but these only have 2 net carbs per cookie.
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 $46.24 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.
