I’ve been on a keto diet for almost a year under my doctor’s supervision and I’m down 70 lbs! My ambitious goal is to lose 100 lbs by the end of the year. Over the last few months, I’ve got back on track and started working towards this goal and I’m doing great! This box helps provide healthy and delicious keto snacks that I can have on hand when the cravings and hunger hits – which is often!

Fat 13g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 10/10
These guilt-free chocolate chip mini cookies are made with all-natural ingredients and are low-carb and gluten-free. They’re naturally sweetened with a blend of erythritol, monk fruit extract, and stevia extract.
I love the texture and the phenomenal taste of these cookies. They have a shortbread-like texture with the perfect crumble. They don’t taste at all like a low carb snack. I loved them and so did my husband and the kids. With this tiny portion, we got about 2 cookies each!
Curly Girlz Candy Sugar-Free Caramels in Chocolate, 2 oz – Listed Value $5.99 (Buy a full-size 4 oz bag for $11.49)
Fat 7g | Net Carbs 0g | Taste Score: 8/10
Curly Girlz makes sugar-free and keto-friendly candies. These sugar-free chocolate caramels are sweetened with a blend of plant-based high fiber sweeteners including tagatose and allulose.
This chocolate candy is a real treat. I love the taste and the not-too-sticky texture. I was expecting a rich and buttery caramel taste and it was very subdued. You taste the chocolate much more than the caramel. Still, the caramels are yummy.
MCT Bar – Cocoa, 1.59 oz – Listed Value $3.78 (Buy a box of 12 for $38.99)
Fat 19g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 1/10
Perfect for on-the-go, these keto-friendly bars contain 5g of MCTs derived from coconuts and 10g of grass-fed collagen protein. The cocoa bars are made with 100% organic chocolate and are non-GMO and gluten-free.
One point for those awesome ingredients! However, I cannot stomach that taste of this bar. It’s awful – the taste and the texture. It’s like a barely sweetened chocolate shot of castor oil. I’ve tried other flavors of the MCT Bar in previous boxes and they were much better than this.
Pork King Good Fried Pork Rinds in Himalayan Pink Salt & Vinegar, 1.75 oz – Listed Value $2.49 (Buy a 4 pack for $13.99)
Fat 6g | Net Carbs 0g | Taste Score: 10/10
Pork rinds, also called chicharrones, are keto staples and great alternatives to chips. Pork King Good is a woman-owned company whose rinds are light, salty, and crunchy. They come in mouth-watering flavors like these salt and vinegar rinds.
Delicious! I love how light these pork rinds are. When eating chicharrones, I’m usually very cautious of stumbling across a really hard and impossible to chew piece. These are the exact opposite – super light and crunchy. They almost melt in your mouth. Also, the flavor is great. These are better than salt and vinegar chips!
IQ Bar – Lemon Blueberry, 1.6 oz – Listed Value $3.00 (Buy a box of 12 for $14.99)
Fat 10g | Net Carbs 4g | Taste Score: 7/10
IQ Bars include ingredients that are good for your brain and support cognitive energy, performance, and health. They’re gluten-, dairy-, and soy-free and come in seven flavors including this tart lemon blueberry bar.
This bar is a little dry but the nutty texture and lemon and blueberry flavor make it enjoyable. It’s just slightly sweet and I’d prefer it if it were a little sweeter. My husband loved this bar more than I did. He would rate it higher.
Intakt Snacks Spicy Cheese, 1 oz – Listed Value $3.99 (Buy a 4-pack for $14.99)
Fat 6g | Net Carbs 1 g | Taste Score: 5/10
Family-owned Intakt snacks deliver keto and paleo-friendly snacks made with buttery cheese from southern Chile. This snack is made with cheese infused with spice and dehydrated at low temperatures.
How is it possible for a cheese snack to not be cheesy enough? These crunchy cheese snacks go from bland to incredibly spicy. Either the spicy flavor overwhelms the cheese or the cheese is very mild.
Brooklyn Biltong in Lemon Pepper, 2 oz – Listed Value $8.50 (Buy a pack of 3 for $19.99)
Fat 2.5g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 8/10
This tangy lemon pepper biltong is made with 100% grass-fed air-dried beef and no sugar added. It’s keto- and paleo-friendly and Whole30 approved.
Keto boxes introduced me to biltong and I’ve been hooked since. These are exceptionally flavored. To me, it tastes like dried peppery corned beef and I love corned beef. My only complaint would be that the cuts of beef vary significantly. There are lots of really tiny pieces versus the larger chunks of beef that I prefer.
Better Than Good Salted Caramel Protein Puffs, 0.88 oz – Listed Value $2.80 (Buy an 8-pack for $19.99)
Fat 3.5g | Net Carbs 4g | Taste Score: 7/10
These light and crunchy puffs are made with whey protein and two servings of fruits and vegetables. It contains 25% of your daily vitamins plus antioxidants and superfoods. And, these puffs are keto-friendly, non-GMO, and free of gluten, soy, nuts, and lactose.
The puffs themselves are pretty bland but the flavoring is bold and delicious. My husband and I both thought that they tasted like butterscotch. These are quite enjoyable. However, I keep running across super hard tiny bits of puff that are impossible to chew or swallow.
Ultima Replenisher in Lemonade and Raspberry, 0.12 oz – Listed Value $1.80 (Buy a full-size 3.7 oz jar for $14.99)
Fat 0g | Net Carbs 0g | Taste Score: 9/10
This replenisher will help replace electrolytes and rehydrate. It’s sugar-free and made with plant-based colors and flavors. It’s also sugar-, gluten-, caffeine-, and dairy-free.
I tried the lemonade replenisher and it was good if not slightly too sweet. It tastes like a drink and not just flavored water. Compared to the drink mix in last month’s box, I think I like the other one better. But, my family, especially the kids, love this one more.
FattBar in Caramel and Sea Salt, 1.06 oz – Listed Value $3.00 (Buy a pack of 5 for $13.75)
Fat 11g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 9/10
FattBar makes a range of snack bars packed with natural and nutritious ingredients and no added sugar. Rich and buttery, FattBars are loaded with nuts, flavor, fiber, and fat.
This chewy and sticky bar tastes more like candy than a healthy bar. It reminds me of a Sugar Daddy and is very dessert-like. It makes me feel like I’m cheating on my diet!
Skuta Pumpkin Seeds in Sea Salt, 140 g – Listed Value $5.99 (Buy a 6-pack for $24.99)
Fat 19g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 8/10
Pumpkin seeds are heart-healthy. They’re a great source of omegas, magnesium, and iron and are high in fiber, protein, and essential fatty acids. These Skuta pumpkin seeds are dry roasted with a touch of natural sea salt.
These pumpkin seeds are light, fresh, crunchy, and slightly salted. The portion is also generous. I like the spicier flavor from last month’s box a little better than these. Still, these have been my go-to snack for in between meals.
The Verdict: On the keto diet, one of my biggest challenges is finding healthy and keto-friendly snacks to hold me over between meals. This box had some great snacks that were a good mix of sweet, salty, and savory. I also noticed a theme with caramel-flavored snacks.
The High Key mini cookies and Pork King Good salt and vinegar pork rinds were the absolute best! The FattBar and lemonade Ultima replenisher come in a close second. Neither taste like “diet food” and they’re both sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. The MCT Bar was the only snack that I didn’t like at all. With only two of the snacks scoring less than a seven, this box was a hit! I can’t wait to try next month’s box.
