CLEAN.FIT Box June 2019 Review
The majority of the items in this box are snacks, but you will occasionally get a supplement or other small fitness item:
There was an information card with more information on the brands and products in the box. This month, there were also coupons, information on how to get a free box, and a workout.
Skinny Bits Energy Snack (3 servings) – Buy 2 Servings for $8
These are spirulina algae tablets. Algae is a renewable and sustainable nutrient source (it can be grown in labs in clean conditions to minimize or eliminate the presence of heavy metals, for example). But. I am not sure I would call this a “snack.” Although it has some calories, this “snack” is essentially swallowing THIRTY TABLETS. Which is not my idea of a good time. And is also something I’d call a supplement rather than a snack. I gave it the old college try but apparently I am just not cut out for swallowing this many tablets at once. (Why would you want to do this? Well, there are tons of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.)
Bakeology Chocolate Chip Crunchy Cookie Bites (1 oz) – Buy 3, 6 oz Bags for $16.47
These were also in the Vegan Cuts Snack Box this month. They are vegan and gluten-free, but they actually kind of have a satisfying texture to chew and they don’t skimp on the chocolate chips.
Tipson Matcha Masala Chai (25 bags) – Retail Value $6.99
I am a big tea drinker so I am always happy to see an entire package of tea in a subscription box. I don’t like to drink matcha like where you mix up the powder with water because it never dissolves (it’s ground up tea leaves and has cellulose so it can’t dissolve!) but I know there are tons of antioxidants and that green tea is good for you. So I was excited for this product, which keeps the powder inside the tea bags. When brewed, this tastes strongly of cinnamon above all else, but I may have left the tea bag in for too long, to be fair. I’ll take this to work and put it in my tea drawer as I know the smell will be a pick-me-up (as will the caffeine).
Green Mustache Cheddarish (1 oz) – Buy 8 Bags for $15.90
These are gluten-free and vegan. I am not always a fan of gluten-free baked goods, but gluten-free crackers (made from flour, like these, not seeds) have about the best texture of any gluten-free baked good I’ve tried, and these are no exception. I don’t really think they taste like cheese at all, but most vegan attempts at cheese don’t taste like cheese. They’re decent little savory crackers, though, nonetheless.
Skout Dark Chocolate Cherry Bar (1.9 oz) – Buy 12 Bars for $33.48
These have a low number of ingredients and taste like what they are, which is a fruit and seed bar with some nuts as well. There is no added sugar and these are compatible with a number of dietary restrictions (kosher, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, etc.). I like them, and pumpkin seeds aren’t used enough in snacks, I think, although at nearly $3/bar, they are kind of pricy.
Skout Coconut Almond Bar (1.9 oz) – Buy 12 Bars for $33.48
You actually can tell the difference between this one and the previous one, which is great, as sometimes fruit and nut/seed bars are indistinguishable from one another. I do like getting multiple flavors of a snack because sometimes one doesn’t work for me and another does (in this case, I liked both). These do tend to stick in your teeth a bit, but a lot of these less-processed snacks can do that.
Walball – Retail Value $19.99
You’ll sometimes receive a small fitness item or bath and body item in this box, even though the subscription is mostly food. This item is meant to massage trigger points for pain relief. You can just press it against a wall or floor (or yoga mat) and it will stick in place without damaging the surface (it even stuck to the board I was using to take photos). Some areas can be hard to reach but I am having fun trying this in different places (right now I’m liking it for heels since I have plantar fasciitis).
Wild Minis Himalayan Pink Salt – Retail Value $1.75
A lot of Himalayan pink salt comes with huge, coarse grains, but sometimes that is not what you want, so I appreciate the smaller grain size here, since the grinder I was using for salt has broken. This is intended for use as a flavor enhancer and I do think it helps with that (I salted my dinner one night to try this out, which is not something I’d usually do since I have high blood pressure, but once won’t hurt). It is also suggested to use this for mixed drinks, i.e., with salt around the rim, so that is something you can try if you drink (I don’t).
Zeno Bar Almond Nut (1.6 oz) – Buy 12 Bars for $28.75
This has allulose, which can be found in figs and corn and which is almost as sweet as table sugar with many fewer calories so it doesn’t cause your blood sugar to spike. This is pretty much a standard nut and seed bar, otherwise. But it is gluten-free and soy free and vegan so it will probably work for a lot of people with food allergies. This one had a good texture (I am very particular about food textures).
Zeno Bar Strawberry Nut (1.6 oz) – Buy 12 Bars for $28.75
Here’s a second bar from this brand, which is pretty much the same other than the ingredients. I don’t know if I had eaten this without seeing the package, whether I’d know this was strawberry as opposed to some other kind of fruit, but I did enjoy it, and I’d be interested in eating some other allulose snacks because I did not find the allulose to have an off aftertaste (like stevia can). These bars are low in net carbs (they do have some fiber) if you are watching such things.
Verdict: The May CLEAN.FIT Box had 10 items, which makes the average cost per item about $3.50. The Walball on its own was $20, and the tea was $6.99, which leaves only about $8 for the remaining 8 items, so I would say the value was pretty good this month ($8 would certainly be less than the total retail value of all the remaining items purchased individually). I was very excited about getting an ovo-lacto vegetarian box, although this month seems to also be mostly a gluten-free vegan box, which I am admittedly less excited about. Most of the products were new to me, though, and I was pleased with the variety of items (yes, there were a lot of bars, but fitness-oriented boxes always have a lot of bars). I always find the small fitness items useful when they are included and there were still enough snacks to keep me happy.
