Fit Snack Box August 2019 Review
One side of the information card typically has a little more information about the snacks in the box and the other side has a workout for you to try. Sometimes there are also coupons and/or product literature, but not always.
Palmonds Sweet BBQ (1.5 oz) – Buy 1 pound for $19.99
We received these in a different flavor in a past box and I am fine with getting them again in a new flavor. I found the last ones oddly addicting, and I think that was true here, as well. The BBQ flavor wasn’t particularly strong but then, I will snack on unflavored almonds so that isn’t a huge concern for me. These are gently dehydrated instead of roasted and I do think that affects the texture, which is somewhat better (I think) than your average raw almond.
Libra Chili Lime Meal Bar (4.2 oz) – Buy 6 bars for $30
This was a totally new brand and item for me. I’m kind of on the fence about this. It was definitely worth trying once, but it does have some egg whites and so it kind of has the same texture as an RxBar (I’m not a fan of those but I did like this a bit better). Chewing it actually wore out my jaw and I only ate half – I split it with my husband since it is 500 calories all on its own. I think the thing that keeps me from being 100% on board is the savory flavor. It is just a little bit strange for something with this texture that also has fruit and nuts. It’s not bad, but I don’t know that it’s something I’d seek out.
Luke’s Organic Cheddar Clouds (1 oz) – Buy 12, 4 oz bags for $35.88
We’ve gotten various snacks from Luke’s in past boxes but they’ve all been different and I am OK with that. These were cheesy and I appreciate that, but they strongly reminded me of Pirate’s Booty and I just don’t know how many things like that the market needs. I was a bit surprised that these had several whole grain ingredients because they were pretty starchy.
Incredipuffs Cinnamon Apple Pie (0.74 oz) – Buy 24 bags for $24.99
This is another item I’ve received in other flavors (here but also, I think, from Vegan Cuts) and I have always felt these had a better texture than most other puff-based snacks I enjoyed eating these quite a bit; they reminded me vaguely of a healthier version of Taco Bell cinnamon twists, though I will admit to not having eaten cinnamon twists for at least two decades so I may just not remember (at all) what they are like.
Conquering West Jerky in All Natural Hickory (sample pack) – Buy 5.5 oz for $13.49
You do tend to receive meat sticks and jerky on a regular basis with Fit Snack Box. Everything else was vegetarian so I’m OK with getting one item I have to pass along to someone else. Conquering West products don’t use chemical preservatives and the recipe was developed by a father and son. One thing I think is mildly amusing is all the cattle ranching imagery on their website, and the product name, and then the fact that it is made in New Jersey.
Nakd Cocoa Orange (35g) – Buy 18 bars for $19.99
From a flavor perspective, this was probably my favorite item in the box. I think these are originally a British snack and I have had some other flavors of these before, but the cocoa orange ones were new to me and quite good. What is really surprising is that this is only made from dates, cashews, raisins, cocoa, and a hint of orange flavor, but I felt the texture was better than most other date and nut bars. It looks like you can get these in the US now, and they are inexpensive, relatively speaking, and I would definitely consider ordering some more.
Sea Salt Superseedz (1 oz) – Buy 5 oz for $4.79
I think this may be the only item in the box that isn’t new to me, but it’s been awhile since I’ve seen these and I can’t remember which box I received them in last. They are plain roasted pumpkin seeds. I know I often complain about sea salt flavor as being bland but the pumpkin seeds have enough of a flavor on their own that it works here. These are a good source of various minerals including iron and zinc and healthful fats.
Sweet Potato Puffs in Bangin’ Bar-B-Q (sample pack) – Get 3 sample packs for $2.99 shipping
Here is another item we received in a past box in a different flavor. This worked well in terms of texture and flavor and the barbecue taste was a lot stronger than with the almonds. I do wish the package had some nutrition information, though, and it was pretty small as well.
Verdict: The August Fit Snack Box had 8 items for an average value of $3.23 per item. Some of the items probably come in at somewhat under that value (like the tiny sweet potato puff sample) but others, like the meal bar, are well above that. What I appreciated about this month was that 7 of the 8 items were vegetarian and I’d only tried one of them before (I was familiar with some of the brands but many of the flavors were new). This is really what I’m looking for in a snack box – discovering new snacks!
