Fit Snack Box January 2020 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.
Mountain Standard Camp Master Mix (2.9 oz) - Retail Value $6.50 (on sale for $4.55)
This has bell pepper, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, and a little bit of hot pepper, along with some citrus. It smells really good to me, a little bit like Lawry's Seasoned Salt (not exactly the same, but similar). This is not the kind of thing we cook with very often, but every now and then we try a new recipe and it turns out kind of bland, and I am keeping this around to liven those dishes up a bit.
Plantfusion Complete Protein, Rich Chocolate (1 serving) - Buy 15 servings for $33.99
This brand shows up in food subscription boxes fairly often (you'll see it in Vegancuts as well). It is vegan and primarily has pea protein powder but there are other sources as well, to make it a complete protein (like quinoa and algae). It is sweetened with lucuma, which is natural, and it does have some enzymes but not a lot of extra strange stuff as plant-based powders can sometimes have. I like to use this in my morning smoothies; it blends pretty well although you should note that I use a stick blender, I don't just shake or stir.
Weeks Honey Farm Wildflower Honey Straws (12 count) - Retail Value $2.99
I am familiar with this brand from some tea subscriptions I used to review. I don't put honey in my tea very often but every now and then I will get a tea in a subscription box that is too bitter on its own, and I like to keep a bit of honey in my desk at work because it also kind of helps when you have a cough. Honey straws are perfect because they're not big open jars that can crystallize.
Sweet Cheat Hot Chocolate (5.29 oz) - Retail Value $10.95
This is new to me. It is vegan and sugar-free. I mixed it up with unsweetened almond milk because I had extra (was afraid I'd run out of regular milk if I used that) and it was actually really good. It is only monk fruit, inulin fiber, and cocoa, and normally I don't care for monk fruit very much, but it was great here. As with most hot cocoa, you get chunks when you mix it up, it never really blends perfectly. But eating the chunks is a little like eating brownies, so those were pretty good too. I would buy this again in the future.
Bada Bean Bada Boom Sweet Cinnamon Crunchy Broad Beans (1 oz) - Buy 24 bags for $24.99
These are roasted broad beans. I've tried some of the savory flavors but these are one of the sweet flavors. I think I like the savory flavors more with this snack texture, but these are not bad, and they're better for you than eating actual desserts after a meal, since they are super low in sugar and still have some protein and fiber. These are not too hard, texture-wise.
Sinfit Protein Cookie, Birthday Cake (2.75 oz) - Buy 10 for $24.90
These are mostly whey protein and they contain dairy, soy, almond, and peanuts, so they are probably not great for folks with allergies. But, I don't have food allergies and they are vegetarian. They have surprisingly little grain (some rice and corn ingredients) so they are a bit chewy, but the sweetness is just about right for a protein cookie. Now I really need someone to send me the peanut butter kind of these to try out...
Nairn's Oat Grahams, Chocolate Chip (5.64 oz) - Retail Value $5.09 (on sale for $3.92)
I've had the plain ones from Love With Food and they are plain. These are somewhat less plain due to the addition of chocolate chips. They are gluten free and do have whole grain oats although they are not a high-fiber food. My husband informs me they are pretty good dunked in the hot chocolate from up above, as well.
Why Bar, Cherry Chia (2.3 oz) - Buy 9 bars for $35
These have oats although they are gluten free. They also have tapioca syrup, almond butter, sweetened dried cherries, coconut oil, and chia seed. Although the chia is last on the list, a whole lot of chia seeds got stuck in my teeth. It wasn't gritty like some bars that contain chia, and it tasted pretty good, although it was super chewy. These have a lot of protein and fiber, as expected, although they are also rather high in sugar, and it's a lot of added sugar from the tapioca syrup.
Hippeas Nacho Vibes (1.5 oz) - Buy 12 bags for $19.99
Hippeas show up in food subscription boxes fairly often. I am glad they are starting to send out different flavors, though (it used to be "vegan white cheddar" every month in every box). I think this one is my favorite flavor yet. It has just the right amount of spice, and the chickpea-based texture of these is growing on me as well.
Verdict: The January Fit Snack Box had 9 items for an average value of $3.21 per item. The oat grahams and cocoa as well as the spice mix were all full-size items, and the honey straws may count for that as well. You may not get quite as many items in Fit Snack Box as other snack subscription boxes, but you will usually get at least a few that are full-size, and that doesn't happen often with other boxes. For what it's worth, the items in this box generally seem more healthful than in some other boxes; you get fewer items that are basically candy and more that hit several highlights like whole grains, high fiber, minimally processed, etc. I think this is my favorite Fit Snack Box in the past few months, too.
