Snack With Me July 2019 Review
Correction: Last month I posted about some peanuts I received that were pretty expired. After reading some comments on the review, I realized I had to double-check the packaging, and when I did, I learned I did have the expiration date wrong. Thanks for pointing that out! Needless to say, I have triple-checked important facts, such as expiration dates, before posting this review. Thanks, everyone!
Lately my boxes have included a recipe card for either pairing with something in my box or making with something from my box. This month, it is a dip for some chips we got.
Annie’s Organic Lemon Drop Cookie Bites, 6.5 oz (2 boxes) – Retail Value $6.72 ($3.36 each)
140 Calories │ 7g Fat│ 18g Carbs │ 2g Protein (per 6 cookies) – Expires June 23, 2020
I have come to expect some sort of Annie’s product in our monthly box since they have been present in almost all of the boxes I have received so far. I enjoy trying the new stuff we get though and was excited to see this cookie. The size of the cookies is dangerously perfect: it can be gone in a bite or two! The cookies were pretty good in my opinion but the house was split on this one. That being said, we probably won’t buy them again but I am happy we received two boxes!
Kimchi Tortilla Chips, 5.5 oz – Retail Value $2.29
140 Calories │ 7g Fat│ 18g Carbs │ 2g Protein (per 1 oz chips) – Expires July 17, 2019
I will be honest, the picture on this bag of chips really scared my daughter away and made my son hesitant to try it. I guess the idea of dried veggies scared them away, especially when they are sprinkled with seeds. My son and I really enjoyed them. They were pleasantly extra crispy and had a good flavor. This chip is also gluten-free, vegan, kosher and non-GMO.
Pop Corners Sweet Heat Chili, 5 oz – Buy 12, 7 oz bags for $30.00
120 Calories │ 4g Fat│ 19g Carbs │ 2g Protein (per 1 ounce) – Expires November 15, 2019
These were really delicious! The chips resemble Doritos but are a little puffier. The heat didn’t hit right away but when it did it was shockingly good! I really enjoyed these and so did my son. My daughter doesn’t really like spicy foods so she hated when the heat hit her.
Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips, 5.5 oz – Get an 11 oz bag for $3.98
140 Calories │ 7g Fat│ 18g Carbs │ 2g Protein (per 1 oz) – Expires July 09, 2019
Personal preference: I am not a fan of sweet potato in any form. At first glance, I was a bit hesitant to try this chip out. The chip wasn’t that bad! It really didn’t taste much different than a tortilla chip but did have a weird after flavor. My son, the obvious lover of everything in this month’s box, loved these and kept reaching for more.
Dill Pickle Sunflower Seeds – Get a 5.35 oz bag for $1.38
170 Calories │ 15g Fat│ 6g Carbs │ 7g Protein (per 30 kernels) – Expired July 15, 2019
Snack With Me sends some pretty interestingly flavored sunflower seeds to us and I am not entirely sure how I feel about it. In May I got coconut and this month I got dill pickle. I love sunflower seeds and I love pickles. I just don’t know about them together. Hesitation aside, I tried them. They were not as delicious as a pickle and I did not like them. The kids liked them okay, though. Hopefully the next time we get some sunflower seeds, they will be original.
Twizzlers Sour Mini Twists, 1.85 oz (2 bags) – Get an 8 oz bag for $1.98
180 Calories │ 1.5g Fat│ 40g Carbs │ 1g Protein (per container) – Expires July 2019
I do not normally like licorice and for that reason have never enjoyed Twizzlers products, but I was excited to try these. I love sour candies more than I should. These remind me of Sour Punch Straws and they even tasted pretty similar too! I enjoyed snacking on these and was excited to have a sour candy in this month’s box.
Annie’s Friends Bunny Grahams, 1.5 oz (4 bags) – Get a 7 oz box for $2.99
160 Calories │ 6g Fat│ 24g Carbs │ 3g Protein (per packet) – Expires July 21, 2019
The kids were excited that they got these! These were a familiar snack that they love. The little bunnies come in chocolate chip and chocolate bite-size cookie snacks. We got 4 bags of these and with the two older kiddos, I would be surprised if there are any left.
Annie’s Cookie Dough Protein Bar, 5.85 oz – Retail Value $3.49
140 Calories │ 8g Fat│ 16g Carbs │ 6g Protein (per bar) – Expired June 21, 2019
Another Annie’s product! I didn’t know that they made protein bars so this was a treat! The flavor is peanut butter cookie dough and has chocolate chips all through the bar. The bars honestly feel like cookie dough and are really soft. They were super peanut buttery and weren’t that bad – I just don’t have a deep love for peanut butter as much as I used to. But, once again, this was a hit with the kids!
Duke’s Shorty Tall Ball Hot & Spicy Smoked Sausage, 1 oz – Get a 16 oz bag for $24.95
140 Calories │ 11g Fat│ 2g Carbs │ 8g Protein (per package – Expired June 3, 2019
The last couple of months have brought me Duke’s sausages in different flavors, and honestly, I am tired of trying them out. I just don’t love this jerky as much as my preferred brand. This month, they sent an ultra-big, long version of their hot & spicy sausage. I took a bite and thought it was okay – a little spicy but not too spicy for me. I saved the rest for my husband who devoured it with a slice of Colby jack cheese.
Wagyu Beef Steak Strip, 0.8 oz (5 packages) – Get a box of 20 for $39.95
110 Calories │ 7g Fat│ 3g Carbs │ 6g Protein (per package) – Expires August 19, 2019
Wow, I got 5 packages of these and I was really hoping I would like it since there is so much! But, like I just mentioned above, I am picky and have a preferred jerky brand. I know this is a steak strip, but that’s pretty much jerky in my opinion. Plus, this one was wet and had some liquid in the package. I just don’t know how I feel about wet jerky and when I tried it, I held true to that. There are just some foods that shouldn’t be wet. I understand this is completely a preference, but this is coming from someone who hates milk in cereal (love my cereal dry). I kept these for my husband whose first question was, why is it wet? It ended up hurting his stomach so this is something I just took to the office. A couple of people were pretty excited – this is a pretty pricey strip of steak.
Sweet Tarts Soft & Chewy Ropes, 1.8 oz (2 packages) – Get a box of 24 for $17.97
180 Calories │ 0g Fat│ 44g Carbs │ 0g Protein (per package) – Expires End July 2019
Another familiar treat! The kids love this candy and were excited to see these! They are a sweet chewy treat that we all really like. These were gone pretty quickly too!
Verdict: Snack With Me is a completely random snack box sent every month and I never know what to expect. I have learned to anticipate certain treats, such as Annie’s products and a good mix of sweet and sour products. This month I didn’t discover anything new or anything that I really loved and felt like this box was strictly experimental, but the kids enjoyed most of the snacks so it ultimately is a win in our household. I don’t hold that against this box, though. I enjoy the randomness of the box and appreciate the opportunity to try and discover snacks I wouldn’t normally try on my own.
