Fit Snack Box September 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.
MCT Bar in Caramel Sea Salt (1.59 oz x 2) – Buy 12 bars for $38.99
This is apparently a very new product that you can only pre-order right now (I mean, I guess the flavor is new — MCT Bars have definitely been around for awhile). I gave these to my husband because they have collagen, which is not vegetarian. He says (1) they are edible but (2) the oiliness is off-putting (they have coconut oil in them also) and (3) you can never totally cover up the meaty flavor that comes along with the collagen. I think these are mostly intended for people on the keto diet. If you don’t eat keto, there are more pleasant bars out there (according to my husband).
Angry Mills Protein Infused Almond Spread in Chocolate Chaos (12 oz) – Retail Value $14.78
This brand is more known for caffeinated protein spreads but this one is non-caffeinated, which suits me just fine. It looked a little better after it was stirred, for what it’s worth. This has added whey protein and the texture is decent although I’m not sure *when* I would typically use this — maybe with a few crackers on an afternoon when I have some calories left over (this is how I tried it for the purposes of writing this review)? I would not make a sandwich with it (chocolate sandwiches don’t actually taste as good as they sound, trust me on this) although I think it would be nice in some cookies or a smoothie.
Hippeas Nacho Vibes (1.5 oz) – Buy 6, 4 oz bags for $19.99
Hippeas show up in a lot of food subscription boxes. They are puff snacks made partly from chickpea flour (they also have rice flour). I was still happy to receive these, though, because I have never tried this particular flavor before. These are vegan so, while they don’t really taste like cheese, I find they get a lot closer than the flavor called “vegan white cheddar.”
Supernola Triple Berry Vanilla (1.5 oz) – Buy 12 bags for $35.88
We’ve received Supernola in Fit Snack Box before although this flavor is new to me. (I tend not to remind repeat brands if the flavors are different because sometimes I find that I might not care for one flavor but another one is more to my liking.) This obviously has berries from the color, although the flavor is more “nuts and seeds” to me than anything else, which honestly makes sense, since the first four ingredients are almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds.
California Livermore Red Walnuts (2 oz) – Buy 8 oz for $9.99
I had never heard of red walnuts before, most likely because they only grow in one small area. They taste like regular walnuts. But they are BRIGHT RED. I happen to love unusual colors in food (like purple and orange cauliflower, red carrots, etc.) so these appealed to me quite a bit. They are reasonably priced and would make a great nut topping with natural red color in a dessert or something like that.
Plantfusion Complete Protein Creamy Vanilla Bean (1 serving) – Buy 15 servings for $33.99
This is vegan protein powder and I think they may have recently redesigned their packaging. At any rate, the main base is pea but there are some others (like amaranth) to make the protein complete (i.e., contain all the amino acids essential for protein production in the body). This is sweetened with natural sweeteners like monk fruit extract, lucuma, and yacon. I tried it in a smoothie since this is how I would normally use protein powder, and it worked nicely. The flavor was noticeable but not overwhelming. I also think it blended well.
Jana Banana Dark Chocolate Covered (1.34 oz) – Buy 12 bars for $14.90
I was super hungry the day I got this box and I just ate this all on my own without sharing with my husband and I really liked it. Jana Banana bars have been making the rounds lately but this is different from the others I’ve received due to the dark chocolate coating, which pairs nicely with the banana both in terms of flavor and texture. I was definitely a fan of this one.
Gorilly Goods Coast (1.3 oz) – Buy a 12 pack for $30.99
Gorilly Goods products also occasionally show up in Fit Snack Box (they are from the same company as Supernola) but again, this is a new flavor we haven’t tried before. It is mostly cashews and raisins but with curry seasoning. It sounds a little strange but the flavor combination actually works pretty well. It’s got something of that salty/sweet flavor combination going on, but in a different direction from the salted chocolates and caramels I’ve seen around lately.
That’s It Apples + Dates (0.7 oz) – Buy a 12, 1.2 oz bar variety pack for $16.99
I had tried the full-size That’s It bars before, but these mini ones were new to me. I liked getting three different kinds to try but was a little surprised by how different the calories were in each bar (at 35, 45, and 60). The fig and date ones were pretty similar; both types of fruit work well in bars like this.
That’s It Apples + Strawberries (0.7 oz) – Buy a 12, 1.2 oz bar variety pack for $16.99
These were, oddly, the highest in calories of any of the That’s It minis provided. I don’t have a lot else to say about them except that they had the most distinct flavor of any of the bunch. I know there are some people who don’t like, say, Fig Newtons or Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars, and if that is true, you’d probably prefer the strawberry flavor of these as well.
That’s It Apples + Figs (0.7 oz) – Buy a 12, 1.2 oz bar variety pack for $16.99
These were pretty similar to the ones with dates, to be honest, although I did enjoy them. I like having a lower-calorie option available as the full-sized bars are over 100 calories each, and sometimes I just don’t want that many.
Verdict: The September Fit Snack Box had 12 items for an average value of $2.33 per item. In general, this was a great box for me. The red walnuts were a fun discovery, I loved the Jana Banana chocolate-covered bar, and I got a whole bunch of new flavors of snacks to try. I was sad that I couldn’t eat the MCT bars although my husband was able to, so they didn’t go to waste.
