FitSnack Box February 2019 Review
This box usually contains some ready-to-eat snacks and sometimes a few pantry items. Although many items will be gluten-free, vegan, etc., you will also receive items with wheat, dairy, and meat-based ingredients on occasion, so it is best if you are an omnivore or live in a household with one:
The box came wrapped in cling wrap and taped, which was a little strange. You can see above how the information card was attached to the box. Maybe it got wrapped once, then they realized the cards were not in there, attached them to the outside, wrapped again, taped, and shipped? It seems complicated but I can’t come up with anything else. Anyway, one side of the information card has a list of items for the month and the other side has a workout.
We have received these before in several different flavors. My favorite one is still Brickoven Pizza, but these were oddly satisfying for a sweet flavor. They kind of reminded me of kids’ breakfast cereal (but with less sugar). They did stick in my teeth a bit, but overall, I enjoyed them.
Lesser Evil Buddha Bowl Himalayan Gold Popcorn (0.46 oz) – Buy 12, 5 oz Bags for $39.99
I have had other popcorn flavors from this company before, but I think this is my favorite. It does a passable job of mimicking a butter flavor (this is vegan) and is actually quite nice for bagged popcorn.
Authentic Italian Pasta Chips, Alfredo (1 oz) – Buy a 5 oz Bag for $3.49
I have had these before in other flavors from Fit Snack Box, as well, but I am good with getting a new flavor of something I’ve tried because sometimes if one doesn’t work for you, another one might. I share all subscription box snacks with my husband and when I asked him what he thought of these, he said they were not as flavorful as he expected. And he’s right, I had independently formed the same impression. They’re not bad, but there’s not much cheesy about them.
Go Macro Macrobar Protein Pleasure, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip (2.4 oz) – Buy 12 Bars for $34.95
I like these, but this company needs to start sending a different product out. I have probably had the equivalent of a whole case in the past year, between snack boxes, vegan boxes, and fitness boxes. These do have a good texture for a vegan, plant-based protein bar, and they are tasty, but beware they are much higher in calories than most protein bars (these are 290; others tend to range from 180 to 220).
Plotz! Honey Nutters (4 oz) – Buy 4 Bags for $19.99
These were new to me. I at first expected them to be like miniature pieces of a KIND bar (there is one called “honey roasted nuts and sea salt” they reminded me of at first glance) but they are actually softer and chewier and also really good. It’s probably good I only got the one bag because the ones I have left are really tempting me.
IQBar in Matcha Chai Hazelnut (1.6 oz)
I haven’t provided a link in the item title because this appears to have been reformulated and no longer contains hazelnut. You can buy the new formula here for $24.99 (box of 12). I am actually kind of sad these have changed as I did really enjoy this one – it wasn’t stale at all, despite the older packaging. And the combination of chai spices was sort of warming and comforting, which was nice on a cold, rainy day.
PB Fit (0.84 oz x 2)
This is an item I know well, having received a rather large jar in a box last month or the month before. But that is OK, because it is a type of item I buy regularly and keep around. I put this in smoothies and my husband puts it in his oatmeal and sometimes we also mix it into baked goods. (I do NOT mix it up and eat it like real peanut butter, although I have seen that suggested.) I find this to be quite similar to PB2, to be honest. I doubt I could tell the two apart if they were set in front of me without labels.
Verdict: The February FitSnack Box had 8 items, which makes the average cost per item about $3.24 (figuring a $25.90 cost for the box + shipping, and counting the two PBFit packages separately). I didn’t notice quite as many repeats this month (or if I had tried the products before, like the protein crisps or pasta chips, there were different flavors this month) and everything was again vegetarian, so I was happy.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Boxes ship out around the 20th of the month so it is too late to get February’s box.
Value Breakdown: At $25.90 for this box, you are paying about $3.24 per item.
