Fit Snack Box October 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.
Incredipuffs, Sizzlin Sriracha (0.74 oz) – Buy 24 bags for $29.99
These show up in a lot of food subscription boxes. They are largely made from corn and/or corn starch as they have very little fat, protein, fiber, or sugar. Despite that, they do have an appealing texture (i.e., they don’t remind me at all of cornstarch packing peanuts, which is more than I can say for other puff snacks). The flavor is spicy but not overwhelming.
Incredipuffs, Cinnamon Apple Pie (0.74 oz) – Buy 24 bags for $29.99
These are honestly pretty similar in most regards to the sriracha ones except they have a cinnamon apple flavor. This is one of those rare snacks that works with both savory and sweet flavors. They remind me vaguely of a better-for-you version of Taco Bell cinnamon twists (if those things even still exist — I probably haven’t had one in over 20 years so they may be long gone).
Palmonds, Salty Sweet (1.5 oz) – Buy 1 pound for $19.99
We’ve had these from Fit Snack Box before but they are pretty good. They are glazed with coconut sugar and coconut aminos for a sweet/savory sort of taste, but they are mostly just like almonds with a hint of something else. I’d be interested in trying some of the other flavors of these as well.
Sinfit Protein Cookie, Snickerdoodle (2.75 oz) – Buy a 5-pack for $13.75
This is super dense. It is mostly made of dairy-based protein ingredients (like whey) but also has some nuts. It is not very cookie-like and is more like a protein bar, although perhaps sweeter. This is really high in protein and has quite a lot of fat, though almost no fiber. You could almost make it work as a meal replacement if you added some fruit. It doesn’t have the texture of a snickerdoodle at all, but all things considered, the flavor is pretty similar. This wasn’t particularly crumbly or messy to eat.
Sinfit Protein Cookie, Birthday Cake (2.75 oz) – Buy a 5-pack for $13.75
This is pretty similar to the snickerdoodle one except it has sprinkles and no cinnamon. Also I did eat it (well half of it) on my birthday. These are a little high in calories compared to protein bars (this is 310 calories where protein bars are usually, but not always, in the 180 to 220 range) but that could work for some people’s nutritional goals. I’d be interested in trying other flavors of these, as well.
Wicked Cutz Smoked Mesquite Beef Stick (1.5 oz) – Buy a box of 4 for $8.76
You’ll get about one meat stick per month in this box. I am a vegetarian and my husband is not a big meat stick eater so I sent this home with my dad who visited earlier in the week. These are made in the USA and are gluten-free, if either of those are of concern to you.
Bob’s Red Mill Peanut Butter Apple Spice and Oats Bob’s Better Bar (1.76 oz) – Buy 12 bars for $22.99
This has a little each of protein, fiber, and fat, but also a fair amount of sugar. I think I’d class this more as a snack bar or energy bar than anything else. It is tasty and has a nice texture and the oats included are whole grain. The ingredients list overall is pretty simple so it is great the texture works (simple ingredients list foods are often hard or sticky or crumbly but this isn’t). I am a fan of Bob’s Red Mill as a brand and buy a lot of their products.
Bob’s Red Mill Peanut Butter Jelly and Oats Bob’s Better Bar (1.76 oz) – Buy 12 bars for $22.99
Here is a different flavor of the bar above. Nutritionally, it is pretty similar to the previous one, although it has cranberries and strawberry powder instead of apple. These are gluten-free and vegetarian but not vegan because they do contain honey. This one also tasted good and had a nice texture.
Superseedz Maple Sugar and Sea Salt (1 oz) – Buy 5 oz for $4.79
I have had these before in other flavors (usually sea salt, aka “plain”) but this flavor was new to me. And it was really, really good. The maple was just perfect for fall and it worked well with the pumpkin seeds. The salt really brought out the sweetness, as well. I am a fan.
Vahdam Cardamom Masala Chai Spiced Black Tea (sample) – Buy 3.53 oz for $8.99
You’ll see Vahdam Teas in Fit Snack Box all the time but they are good teas (I’ve bought some on my own) and it’s always something a little different. This is a nice spiced black tea that I find myself drinking at work pretty often, especially as it gets cooler outside. This one stands up to extra long steeping if you forget to remove your tea bag, as well.
Purely Inspired Organic Protein, French Vanilla (1.27 oz) – Buy 1.5 lbs for $19.99
This is vegan and organic and the primary component is pea protein. I don’t find pea protein blends super well but it is actually fine in smoothies along with other ingredients. This has a lot of vitamin C and iron and, for what it’s worth, vitamin C can aid in the uptake of iron, which may be important for vegans and vegetarians since plant-based iron is typically not absorbed as well. (Caffeine hinders the uptake of iron so don’t have this one with your morning tea or coffee.) The vanilla flavor is pretty standard.
Verdict: The October Fit Snack Box had 11 items for an average value of $2.63 per item. The Sinfit protein cookies were totally new to me and I particularly enjoyed the pumpkin seeds. I gave the meat stick away but everything else was vegan or vegetarian and I was able to enjoy it and even though I have had some of these items before, they were all things I generally like so I wasn’t sad to see them again.
