Fit Snack Subscription Box Review – March 2020

Fit Snack Box is a subscription box containing snacks that each has at least two of the following characteristics: GMO-free, high protein, low sugar, gluten-free, organic, raw, vegan, and/or all-natural. (That is, any given item might be low in sugar and vegan, or organic and gluten-free but not vegan, etc.)

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

About Fit Snack Box

The Subscription Box: Fit Snack Box 

The Cost: $28.90/month with free US shipping (save with longer subscriptions)

The Products: $32+ worth of full and sample size snacks, protein powders, pantry items, and other healthy consumables selected by a nutritionist.

Ships to: The US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, parts of Asia, and parts of Europe (shipping costs will differ for non-US countries)

Good to Know: This box usually contains some ready-to-eat snacks and sometimes a few pantry items. Although many items will be gluten-free, vegan, etc., you will also receive items with wheat, dairy, and meat-based ingredients on occasion, so it is best if you are an omnivore or live in a household with one.

Fit Snack Box March 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. These could be pretty useful if you are stuck at home these days as they seem to involve little or no equipment.

Sometimes there are also coupons and/or product literature, but not always.

 

Bada Bean Bada Boom Sweet Cinnamon Crunchy Broad Beans (1 oz) – Buy 24 bags for $24.99

After all the roasted chickpea snacks started showing up a few years ago, it was only a matter of time before other legumes got the same treatment. These work well, texture-wise, and are a good size for eating with your hands (unlike some things I’ve seen — dried lentils, anyone?). The sweet flavor works although I think I would prefer to try one of the savory flavors (and there are a lot of flavors for this product), just because of my personal preferences.

 

Why Bars, Cherry Chia (2.3 oz) – Buy 9 bars for $35

These are kind of expensive (almost $4 per bar) so it’s not the kind of thing I would probably try on my own (but that’s what makes it good to get in a subscription box). This really does have a lot of chia seeds, as I could tell when using a Water Pik after eating it…it doesn’t taste much like cherry, though. Also I had to cut it into tiny pieces because it is very chewy and part of my permanent retainer came unbonded and I can’t go get it fixed until June because of coronavirus-related restrictions on public activity, so anyway, don’t want to make that worse. But cutting this into tiny pieces worked so I didn’t have to bite it with my front teeth.

 

Flapjacked Cookie Bar, Chocolate Brownie (1.9 oz) – Buy 12 for $24.99

I have tried some other things from this company (muffins and protein cookie mix) but this was new to me. It was soft and honestly pretty good. It is sweetened with stevia, which I don’t like in drinks but find OK in food. This has some dairy ingredients and is vegetarian. It has 10 g of protein per serving and includes both prebiotics and probiotics for gut health.

 

Incredipuffs, Sizzlin’ Sriracha (0.74 oz) – Buy 24 bags for $29.99

These are mostly cornmeal with some bean flour, too. Nutritionally, they are largely starch with some fat, but low(ish) in sodium for a savory snack of this type. I have also tried the apple cinnamon flavor of these and I think I like these sriracha ones a little better. It may be for the same reasons as I’d like to try the savory flavors of beans (see above), I think I just tend to prefer that in snacks of this type. These have a little bit of a kick but are not too hot. They may give you bad breath, though, as they do include some garlic powder.

 

Backpacker’s Pantry Vegetable Medley (1.4 oz) – Retail Value $5.50 (found here for $2.99)

We had some pancake mix from this brand last month and it was pretty good. This is more backpacking (or prepper) food — freeze dried corn, peas, and carrots with a “sauce” that you reconstitute. It’s vegetarian but not vegan. I have stashed this in the pantry for now because with occasional empty supermarket shelves these days, we sometimes have to change our dinner plans, and having some shelf-stable vegetables as a backup seems like a good idea.

 

Moon Cheese Get Pepper Jacked (1 oz) – Buy 10 oz for $14.99

Freeze-dried cheese is very popular these days. I like it, but I find it sooooo salty that I can never finish a whole serving. I usually split subscription box snacks with my husband, though, and half a serving is about right for me. I think this is the first time I’ve received pepper jack and it is a little spicy but not overwhelming.

 

Kibo Chickpea Chips, Himalayan Salt (1 oz) – Buy 12 bags for $14.99

These come in three flavors (that I know of) and I’ve had the Mediterranean herbs flavor and also the pico de gallo flavor. These are the unflavored ones (well, in my opinion, “sea salt” doesn’t really count as a flavor). They are a little plain, whereas the flavored ones are kind of on the strong side. This is probably the only flavor you could use with a dip. These are a bit rustic but that is not so surprising for a legume-based chip, and they would hold up to all kinds of thick or heavy dips because they are pretty substantial.

 

Foods Alive Nutritional Yeast (1 oz) – Retail Value $1.99

I’ve received this from several vegan subscription boxes in the past. Some people say that this has a cheesy taste but I don’t think so. However, it is useful to have around because I have a few vegan cookbooks that call for it on occasion and this sample packet is just the right size for a use or two. This also has some B vitamins that may be hard to come by in a vegan diet.

 

Teaonic My Brain Mojo Clear Mind (1 fl oz) – Buy 12 for $36

Oh my. I am not a fan of these in general. I took a sip of this one and it tasted like drinking acid. There is lemon juice in here and NO SWEETENER. It seems the ingredients were chosen for purported health benefits without accounting for flavor. I am not one for taking a lot of supplements for brain health, etc., so I may not be the target audience. But I definitely think this would be more palatable with something sweet, even if it was just stevia or monk fruit.

Verdict: The March Fit Snack Box had 9 items for an average value of $3.21 per item. There were some items that were familiar to me (nutritional yeast, Why bar) and a few new ones. The FlapJacked cookie was one of the highlights for me and I’m happy to get some known items in new flavors (chickpea chips, Moon Cheese). Also the whole box was vegetarian this month, although that is not always the case. I thought this was a pretty nice mix of sweet and savory snacks, pantry items and ready-to-eat items, etc.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Boxes ship out around the 20th of the month so it is too late to get March’s box.

Value Breakdown: At $28.90 for this box, you are paying about $3.21 per item.

  1. I agree that nutritional yeast doesn’t taste cheesy! Lots of cheesy vegan recipes call for it and I like the taste but have never thought it was cheese-like!

  2. Thank you for the review Ragan. This box is priced too steeply for me, I’ll think I’ll stick to Love With Food.
