Vegancuts Snack Box September 2019 Review
Vegancuts has had a pretty solid year so far. Let’s see what they sent for September:
The box came with this information card detailing the items in the box. There was also a coupon.
Peatos Fiery Hot (1 oz) – Buy 4, 3 oz bags for $14.99
I don’t know if I would call these “fiery” hot but they are a little bit spicy and they did have a decent texture. I would be willing to try more products from this brand in the future although I notice several of their flavors are not vegan so I’m not sure that will happen. These have a little more fiber and protein than average for savory snacks but are about average for sodium.
Back to Nature Mini Chocolate Chunk Cookies (1.25 oz) – Buy a 9.5 oz box for $3.25
This brand shows up fairly regularly in Vegancuts Snack Box. It is also easy to find at Whole Foods if you’d rather just get one box instead of a whole case or something. These were super crumbly and kind of dry but the texture was oddly satisfying. I don’t know if there was an intact one in the entire bag but that is probably due to being packed with other items in the same box. If you are into dunking cookies into (non-dairy) milk, these would be pretty good for that.
Vegan Rob’s Spinach Puffs (1.25 oz) – Buy 12, 3.5 oz bags for $52.30
These do have a bit of a spinach flavor although the amount of spinach is minimal (i.e., it does not actually count as eating your vegetables when you eat these). I thought they were OK although a bit starchier than I prefer in a puff snack. My husband, with whom I share nearly all subscription box snacks, refused to finish his, however, so it is possible some people will not like them.
Earnest Eats Superfood Oatmeal Apple Cinnamon Flax (2.35 oz) – Buy 6 servings for $16.99
For what it’s worth, all of those fruits pictured on the front? Not actually in the package (I mean, not freeze-dried — of course they wouldn’t be in there fresh). I guess that is a serving suggestion. Anyway, this has almonds as well, which was reassuring since I started eating this and couldn’t figure out what the crunchy stuff was. This is about twice as many calories as I like to see in an oatmeal product but the flavor was pleasant and these would make a good breakfast with a piece of fruit and/or (non-dairy) yogurt.
Soon Veggie Noodle Soup (2.64 oz) – Buy 6 cups for $7.74
This is actually a great idea. I haven’t eaten noodles like this for decades because I don’t trust most of them to be free of chicken/shrimp/etc. I’m saving these for a meal sometime when I don’t really have time to cook since they are shelf-stable and 340 calories, which is kind of a lot for just a snack for me. One nice thing is, these are super-affordable (just over $1.25 per cup) as opposed to the other soup item from this box, which we’ll get to in a bit.
Frooze Balls Salted Caramel (2.5 oz) – Buy a 5-pack for $14.99
Of all the items in the box, I was most looking forward to these. The packaging just made them look delicious to me. And they were pretty good, if not quite as moist as the packaging would lead you to believe. These are called “energy” balls and are mostly dates and nuts but somehow manage to not remind me of every other date/nut product I’ve tried the past few years.
Jana Banana Bar with Peanut Butter (1.4 oz) – Buy 12 bars for $14.90
These have been making the rounds lately. I think I got a Jana Banana bar in all three of my snack boxes this month. If you want some of the nutrients from banana but don’t want to deal with fresh ones going bad (we may have a freezer full of brown bananas…), this could be a good option. These are basically just dried banana and peanuts although they do also have added sugars (such as cane syrup).
2Fit Protein Bar, Vanilla Crunch (1.65 oz)
These are currently unavailable everywhere that I looked, but I linked to the manufacturer’s shop page in case they come back in stock. They are sort of crunchy but in the sense that they are soft overall with a few crunchy bits. What you don’t see in the picture is that they are absolutely dripping with oil, which I think is a feature of a lot of protein bars with added coconut oil. They are actually well-balanced in terms of protein, fiber, and fat, but the thing keeping me from buying them (I mean, aside from them being out of stock) is the oiliness.
True Lemon Fruit Infusions, Lemon Strawberry (10 pack) – Retail Value $3.99
This is meant to mimic the flavor of infusing fruit into your water (as opposed to making your water into lemonade or something). I’d say it does the job pretty well, as the flavor is quite mild. Up until you get to the last bit of the bottle, when the flavor is super strong. Perhaps I didn’t do the best job mixing? Anyway, this is worth a try if you like fruit-infused water but feel that it’s wasteful to use fruit that way (which is something I always kind of thought).
Tsubi Soup Miso Soup (0.37 oz) – Buy 24 for $65
One day I really didn’t feel well, like I was getting a cold or something (honestly, I think it has more to do with the air in my office building, but anyway). So I tried this. And I absolutely loved it. It was only 35 calories and was so much better than drinking broth, plus it made me feel better. I immediately started looking to buy more and, wow. The $2.70 per pack average price kind of threw me off. I am just not willing to pay that much for something with only 35 calories. I did find some competing products that are a little cheaper that I may check out instead.
Verdict: This month’s Vegancuts Snack Box had 10 items for an average value per item of about $2.50. There weren’t as many high-value items this month but I would say at least the Frooze Balls, Fruit Infusions, miso cube, and oatmeal exceeded the average. I was honestly pretty happy with this month. Not everything was gluten-free, and I think that added to the overall snack variety. Asian-style soups are underrepresented among vegan and vegetarian snacks so I was happy to see a couple here, and the Frooze Balls were a nice discovery as well.
