Keto Krate November 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.
Sweet Cheat Hot Chocolate Mix by Tiny Toad Creations, 5.29oz - Retail Value $6.95
This chocolaty mix is sweetened with Monk Fruit and great for mixing into any hot liquid like cream or coffee. With only 1 net carb per 2 tbsp, I don't feel bad having multiple cups. I like it better than the sugar-free cocoa mixes I've tried in the past because it doesn't have that chemical taste.
Jo’Burg Steakhouse Biltong by Brooklyn Biltong, 2oz - Listed Value $8 (Buy a 3 pack for $24.99)
I LOVE jerky snacks but they often have hidden carbs and sugars from all of the flavorings. This 100% grass-fed beef biltong (South Africa's version of jerky) is marinated in a vinegar-based marinade and then air-dried (not heat) to make sure it's tender. It's a bit stringier than typical jerky but it still tastes great. The best part: it has 30g of protein, 160 calories, and NO sugar in the whole pack!
Double Chocolate Chip Cookie by Know Foods, 2.01oz - Retail Value $2.99
If you are in need of a chocolaty snack, this cookie is sweetened with Allulose and has only 3g net carbs. It's ok but won't quell my need for a chocolate chip cookie. It's only slightly sweet and has a more brownie-like texture than that of a gooey cookie.
Crispy Quinoa Milk Chocolate by Coco Polo, 2.5oz - Listed Value $6.99 (Buy a 5 pack for $27.50)
This is some good no sugar added chocolate. The milk chocolate bar is full of popped quinoa and reminds me of a Crunch bar. It's sweetened with an extract of Stevia (which I don't like the flavor of) but I can't taste it at all. The chocolate is actually creamy and delicious. This would be perfect to stash in my desk drawer for any chocolate cravings that creep up.
Buffalo Walnuts by Crazy Go Nuts, 4.5oz - Retail Value $4.49
I really like these spicy buffalo walnuts! They are packed with flavor and have a great soft-crunch texture. The hardest thing for me is stopping before I finish the bag but since they are high in healthy fats and low in carbs, I can if I want to! Keto Krate provides a delicious looking buffalo bacon dip recipe on the site that uses these chopped up for flavor and crunch.
Creamy Peanut Butter and Sea Salt Glo Bar by Raw Rev, 1.6oz - Listed Value $2.49 (Buy 12 bars for $26.99)
I'm such a critique of protein bars and this one doesn't cut it for me. The flavor is subtle and not bad but the dry, gritty texture is something I can't make myself enjoy. This bar is packed with a bunch of minimally-processed superfoods though, so it's a great option if the mouthfeel doesn't get to you.
Spicy Dill Pork Rinds by Southern Recipe Small Batch, 2oz - Listed Value $2.49 (Buy 6 bags for $16.50)
Pork rinds are a staple food of the keto diet since they basically replace anything crunchy like chips, popcorn, or crackers. I like flavors on my pork rinds and you can't go wrong with anything pickle flavored. These have quite a kicky tang to them and might take you aback at first. I'm into it though. They're great with sour cream dip too!
Dark European Chocolate by Chocoperfection, 1.8oz - Listed Value $4.09 (Buy a 12 pack for $51.95)
Another chocolate bar is included this month. This one is a 60% dark chocolate naturally sweetened with chicory root fiber and erythritol. It has only 2g net carbs per bar and has a silky texture. I love that both this and the previous bar have no weird aftertaste.
Vanilla Cake Batter Squeeze Pack by Nikki's Coconut Butter, 1.07oz - Listed Value $1.99 (Buy 10 packs for $19.99)
I love peanut butter and can even handle most nut butters, but this is not my cup of tea. The pack needs to be kneaded to soften it up and then you can use it any way you would use other spreads. The flavor isn't bad but it is very coconutty and strangely crumbly. For the carbs and calories, I'd rather just stick to my natural PB.
The Verdict: Since I follow a keto diet (albeit, a lazy one), I loved having a curated selection of keto-friendly snacks delivered. As usual, the savory snacks were awesome and I'm very happy with the chocolate selection this month. I'm not crazy about the protein bar or the coconut butter spread, but honestly, that didn't shock me. Going off of retail and listed values, this box is worth $40.48 which is less than a dollar 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. If you are a low-carb person, I think this is a great box. If you are just looking for snacks, you might not find the same value here.
