Keto Krate February 2020 Review
I have been on and off the keto diet for about 3 years under a recommendation by my physician, and have had great success! Currently, I have been “living the lifestyle” for about a month and a half, and I have lost about 10 pounds, multiple inches, and just feel so much better! I have fallen off the wagon in the past because this way of living can be hard. I have 2 young boys and a husband who can eat the contents of an entire ice cream truck and still be fit, while I just watch and gain weight! I found this box to provide healthy, tasty, and fun keto snacks that I can have when we have family fun night without blowing my diet and without feeling like I’m missing out.
Because Valentine’s Day is upon us, we received a bright cardstock pamphlet filled with all sorts of info! The cover features 2 hilarious Valentine’s cards that can be cut out and given to a significant other or friend. (My husband thought they were pretty clever.) When unfolded, there is a page with ways to celebrate the big holiday without food. In the past, my husband has brought home chocolate covered strawberries and my favorite sparkling wine, but this year he’s going to have to figure out a plan B! (I’ll have to set this out as a hint!) The pamphlet also features a success story, the link to this month’s product info (krate.club), tips on how to manage your subscription, a delicious looking recipe for Magical Unicorn Cheesecake Bars, the Members-Only shop code, and an uplifting message about self-love on the back!
Chocolate Strawberry Keto Bar, 1.65 oz – Listed Value $3.40, Retail Value $2.95
Fat 18g | Net Carbs 5g | Taste Score: 5/10
Well here is the keto version of a chocolate-covered strawberry! The main ingredients in this bar are chocolate, almonds, coconut, strawberries, erythritol, and cocoa. Upon my initial sampling, I found this bar to be extremely bitter, but after chewing it for a few moments, I tasted the coconut and strawberry flavors really coming through. I liked the texture of this bar and the flavor pairings, I just wish the chocolate would have been a bit sweeter. Don’t worry- it didn’t stop me from finishing the entire bar!
Fat Fit Go Cinnamon Roll Cookie, 1.94 oz – Listed Value $1.99 (Buy an 8 pack for $19.98)
Fat 15g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 9/10
I absolutely love cookies but had yet to find a yummy keto version, that is until I tried this one! While I’m not the biggest fan of cinnamon, I found this almond and coconut flour cookie to be perfectly soft, chewy, and delicious with the perfect ratio of cinnamon. I see this company also sells chocolate chip, cranberry orange, and double chocolate versions that I might just have to try!
Kiss My Keto Cookie Dough, 1.76 oz – Retail Value $3.00 (Buy a 12 pack for $39.99)
Fat 19g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 4/10
Pre-keto I LOVED eating cookie dough, and my kids often ask for homemade chocolate chip cookies for school and I have to try and resist having a taste. I thought this cookie dough bar would be the perfect solution for the lack of cookie dough in my life, but I’m not convinced. This bar is crafted with egg powder, almonds, and coconut and MCT oils. I could tell this bar would be oily right away when it seemed to be stuck/melted to the package and almost slid out of my hand! Honestly, I didn’t get much of a chocolate flavor, and the inside didn’t really remind me of cookie dough. While I really wanted to love this I didn’t, so I will be putting it in my emergency stash in the car.
Ultima Replenisher 3 Pack – Retail Value $1.80 (Buy a 20 pack for $17.59)
Fat 0g | Net Carbs 0g | Taste Score: 9/10
Our family has been hit with influenza, so I am all about electrolyte replenishers right now! I love these individual packets and how easy they are to shake up in a water bottle. Just to note, these packets are non-GMO, gluten-free, plant-based, keto, and paleo. They include 6 electrolytes and trace minerals as well! I tried the raspberry supplement and found it to have a delicious berry taste, with no funny aftertaste. I can’t wait to give the lemonade and grape a try!
Munk Pack Peanut Butter Keto Granola Bar, 1.12 oz – Listed Value $2.00 (Buy a 12 pack for $24.99)
Fat 12g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 10/10
Oh, peanut butter keto bar, how I love thee! I am OBSESSED with peanut butter, and granola bars. Since re-starting keto, I have eaten probably more than my share of peanut butter, but have really missed the crunchiness of a granola bar. This particular bar brought me back to the good ol’ days! Munk Pack uses only real ingredients, and this bar includes peanuts, almonds, allulose, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, and coconut. I love the texture, the crunch, and the taste- the only way it could be improved is if it was bigger!
Spicy Cheese Intakt Snacks, 1 oz – Listed Value $3.99, Retail Value $3.99
Fat 6g | Net Carbs 0.5g | Taste Score: 9/10
These little crunchy curds are made with Chilean buttery cheese and are wonderfully seasoned with a blend of chili, coriander seeds, and cumin. I found them to taste a little like parmesan crisps, but with slightly more crunch. While they taste great on their own, the website suggests using them as croutons in keto-friendly soups and salads, and I definitely want to try that!
DNX Grass Fed Beef, 1.25 oz – Listed Value $2.99 (Buy a 12 pack for $33.99)
Fat 10g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 10/10
Beef jerky is a staple in my life, and this version is fantastic! I love that it incorporates uncured bacon, sea salt, and cracked pepper for maximum flavor! I also appreciate the easy to chew texture. Some beef jerky is so tough you have to literally chew it for an hour to be able to eat it, but this stuff is soft and delicious! My husband and kids were all over this, so I had to hide it! DNX instead of flowers for Valentine’s Day? I say yes!
Better Than Good Ranch Veggie Protein Puffs, 0.88 oz – Listed Value $2.99 (Buy an 8 pack for $23.95)
Fat 3.5g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 10/10
Yummy!!!!!! These ranch-flavored veggie protein puffs are seriously better than good like their name suggests. Not only are these puffs packed with 16 grams of protein and 2 servings of fruits/veggies but they taste AMAZING! My kids even loved them, and have requested them in their lunchboxes instead of Doritos! The story behind this company is special as well. They were originally crafted for the makers’ son as he underwent chemotherapy for Leukemia. The founders still pass their kindness on and donate a percentage of net profits to help other families in need that are being affected by childhood cancer. I am definitely buying these, and can’t wait to try the jalapeno cheddar flavor!
Original Beef Tomer Kosher, 0.9oz – Listed Value $1.99 (Buy a 24 pack for $25.99)
Fat 6g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 9/10
Like I said above, I love beef jerky, and this beef stick is another win! This kosher beef stick is made with chuck cuts of beef, mixed with seasoning, and baked in an all-natural beef casing, so there are no questionable ingredients or additives. I love the texture and flavor, and I found it to be a great snack to eat on the go! (My kids gave it two thumbs up as well!)
Smart Baking Company Vanilla Latte Smartcakes, 2.11 oz – Listed Value $3.75, Retail Value $3.79
Fat 2.5g | Net Carbs 0g | Taste Score: 10/10
Again, I have fallen in love. These Smartcakes are amazing! I have never had a low carb treat that is so moist, flavorful, and spongy! It is seriously incredible! The flavor itself is light and sweet, with a perfect hint of vanilla. If you really want to amp things up, this would be absolutely to die for with whipped cream and a strawberry on top! I am definitely going to be checking out the other flavors this company offers!
Dark Chocolate Thins with Hazelnut RossChocolates, 3 oz – Listed Value $5.99
Fat 12g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 8/10
While dark chocolate isn’t my absolute favorite, I have to say these dark chocolate thins with hazelnuts are pretty darn good. The chocolate is a bit bitter at first, but the hazelnut mellows it out a bit and adds the slightest crunch. I could also appreciate the size of the package! It was the perfect item for a Valentine’s box! I couldn’t find this exact version online but could find some larger candy bars. I also see RossChocolates offers a milk chocolate version as well! I just might have to order myself one!
Magic Spoon Fruity Cereal, 7 oz – Listed Value $9.99 (Buy 4 boxes for $39.00)
Fat 6g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 8/10
Pre-keto I had a loving relationship with Froot Loops. Since I have been back on the bandwagon, I haven’t really been craving them, but once in a while I just could use a little bite!! These Magic Spoon fruity bites have come to save the day! Made mostly from a protein blend, coconut oil, tapioca flour, and a sweetener blend, these little pink rounds smell almost identical to Froot Loops! I did question the nutrition facts though, because it states there are 8g of carbs, 2g of dietary fiber, and 0g of total and added sugars, but still lists the net carbs as 3g due to allulose? I’m not sure if that 3g should have been put in the sugar part or where, but at first glance, it looks to me as 6g of net carbs per serving. Besides that discrepancy, I found the cereal to be quite tasty, and a similar to Froot Loops. I had one serving with a serving of unsweetened almond milk and was really full! I also wanted to note, they included a delicious looking cheesecake recipe in the pamphlet using this cereal as the crust!! I must try it!
The Verdict: This is my first month reviewing the Keto Krate box and I am definitely a fan! While on the keto diet I don’t get as hungry as in my carb overload days, but I like the fact that I can still have a treat and stay on my diet. Like I mentioned above, I have small children, and a treat every once in a while is a must for us! (Quoting my 94-year-old grandma: “Life’s short, eat dessert first.”) This box has introduced me to some really fun and delicious snacks, and allows me the pleasure of enjoying a sweet/savory treat when the rest of my family does! I feel this was a very well rounded box with a great mix of sweet and savory snacks. While I didn’t love every snack, I didn’t expect to and was happy to find new favorites without buying an entire case of something I didn’t like. I also have to say, I enjoyed the Valentine’s Day theme! I can’t wait to see what I will discover next month!

Value Breakdown: The box costs $39.99 + free shipping which means that each of the 12 items in the box has an average cost of $3.33. I also wanted to share that on their website, it states the retail value of this month’s products is $43.88, but you would pay $45.30 in shipping costs for each product, plus you would have to spend $87.65 to get the discount code savings of minimum orders for each product, which would bring your total value to $176.83. I think $39.99 is a pretty good price!
