Keto Krate September 2020 Review
How can it possibly be September already?! My favorite season is fall, and along with the beautiful changing leaves comes back the responsibility of going to work! (I work at a school.) With that comes a lot of changes to my diet, and having these snacks around is key to keeping myself from engorging on vending machine snacks mid-afternoon! I love that this subscription introduces me to new treats to keep me on track. Let’s see how this month fared!
I love the included pamphlets this subscription sends each month. I find them extremely informational and love the cute clip art and helpful tips. I also find the success stories extremely motivating. Not only does this guide feature recipes, but it also includes inspirational quotes, the links to the month’s product info (krate.club), and tips on how to manage your subscription.
Better Than Good Baked Cheddar Protein Puffs – Buy a 6 pack for $15.97
Fat 4g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 10/10
I love this company – not only for their background story but for the taste of their snacks!! We’ve received different flavors of these protein puffs in the past, and they hit it out of the park every time. These crunchy, cheddary, easy-to-eat bites are packed with flavor, nutrition, and just plain goodness! Besides the love that I have for these, my kids actually prefer them to non-veggie infused cheese puffs! Winning!
Styrve Original Beef Biltong Air-Dried Beef Slices – Buy a 2.25 oz package for $6.99
Fat 2g | Net Carbs 0g | Taste Score: 8/10
Hooray for beef jerky! As we all know, the second this box arrives, my kids are sniffing around looking for the beef! I am really digging the colorful camo style pattern this re-sealable bag of air-dried beef slices comes in! The packaging is great, but how does this jerky compare to other brands, you ask? Well, the original flavor is pretty standard with notes of salt, a smidgen of garlic, and obviously beef, but the texture is a little different than most. These slices are a lot drier in texture than some and take quite a bit more time to chew, which can be a good and bad thing. My husband prefers this style, while I like my jerky a bit more moist. Nonetheless, it was eaten in a jiffy!
Flackers Sea Salt Flax Seed Crackers – Retail Value $5.51
Fat 12g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 8/10
I have to say, these are the most unique looking crackers I have ever seen in my life. They actually remind me of the little bird seed pellets I buy for my mom’s special bird feeder!!! I’m not scared though because I love any kind of seed, and if I can enjoy a cracker in a low-carb lifestyle I’m all for it! These little flax seed squares have 6 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber, and only 1 g net carb in a serving! The sea salt variety has really good flavor – the crunch of the seeds don’t taste like cardboard like one may expect, but have a nice nutty, roasted flavor with a hint of salt. I enjoyed a few on their own, but also tried it dipped in the garlic butter we received this month. You’ll just have to wait and see what I thought of that pairing! I’ll just say I am anxious to give these a try with some cheese dip!
SunYum Garlic Sunflower Seed Dip and Spread – Buy a 4 cup mixed variety for $14.97
Fat 10g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 5/10
So here is that garlic sunflower seed dip I was talking about with the flackers…this sunflower seed, oil, and garlic dip really had me intrigued as I LOVE garlic, but I gotta say…this was pungent!! I scooped a healthy amount onto my flacker, and I still think garlic is coming out of my pores 2 days later! While tasty, it was a bit too much for me…I may have to save the rest for over a long weekend when I have time to cleanse before having to be around people at work!
Dang Foods Lightly Salted Coconut Chips – Retail Value $1.59
Fat 12g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 7/10
Coconut chips are one of my staple snacks, so I was happy to see this lightly salted version in this month’s Krate. I was a bit disappointed when I tried them though…because to me they tasted just like the original version. I didn’t pick up on much salt flavor at all. I do enjoy these straight out of the bag, but find them to be a better addition to my grilled chicken salads and strawberry smoothies!
IQ Bar Almond Butter Chip – Buy a 12 pack for $24.99
Fat 12g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 8/10
Snack bars are one of my favorite items to receive in this box because I want to try a version before I commit to an entire pack of them. I find bars easy to pack and easy to eat, especially when I am on the go with school starting. This particular bar was packed with protein, fiber, and nutrients. I found the almond butter chip flavor to pair well together and be just sweet enough without having a funny aftertaste. Like a lot of low carb bars, it is a bit greasy looking, but I did really enjoy the flavor!
Pyure Brand Chocolate Drink Mix – Buy a 7.23 oz package for $5.48
Fat 0g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 8/10
I love Pyure as a brand! I use their organic stevia blend for baking! This tasty drink mix can be added to milk or an alternative to kill your chocolate cravings! I drank it with skim milk, and found it delightfully sweet!
JIMMY! Protein Bar Strawberry Nut – Buy a box of 12 for $34.99
Fat 15g | Net Carbs 5g | Taste Score: 8/10
This bar really surprised me. I thought it was going to be berrilicious and nutty, but I found it to be more chocolatey than anything. While like a lot of keto bars, it was a bit on the greasy side, but pretty darn tasty, even if the strawberry flavor didn’t come through as much as I would have liked.
BrightFox Blueberry Vanilla Drink – Buy a case of 24 for $79.99
Fat 0g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 4/10
How cute is this simplistic, contemporary design of a water can?! I love the geometrical fox mascot with the bright blue print. I received the blueberry vanilla version of this filtered water, and I can honestly say I just am not a fan of any flavored water. I like my water plain and straight from the tap. This water is bursting with tart blueberry flavor and even smells incredibly strong! I did give it a whirl, and just didn’t love it, but I am impressed with the amount of potassium, vitamin E, vitamin B6, and vitamin B5 it contains! Because this stuff is insanely expensive, it will not go to waste, I’ll either save it for when I’m super thirsty, or send it with my husband to work.
Iota Tamari + Apple Cider Vinegar Roasted Sunflower Kernels – Buy a 2 oz package for $3.99
Fat 15g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 10/10
If you’ve read any of my past reviews, you may know my palate is not very cultured. That being said, I have never heard of tamari, so a little research was needed! Upon my reading, I found it is a popular Japanese soy sauce that is made by fermenting soybeans to create a very savory flavor. I love sunflower seeds, and the saltier they are, the better. These tamari and apple cider vinegar seed aren’t quite as flavor-packed as I thought they might be, and I’m very okay with that! I found the seeds themselves to be a bit more savory than usual, but not vinegary in the least. I really enjoyed this flavor and had a hard time resealing the package because I couldn’t stop eating them!
Tomer Kosher Original Beef Stick – Buy a case of 24 for $25.99
Fat 6g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 10/10
Now this is what I’m talking about when I want a beef stick! The delicious softness of this beef stick is everything I love: it’s salty, it’s beefy, it’s moist, and it’s chewy! Perfection! I loved the original flavor, and had to fight my kids off so I could savor it myself!
Intakt Crunchy Cheese and Black Pepper – Buy a 12 pack for $28.00
Fat 6g | Net Carbs <1g | Taste Score: 6/10
I wanted to love these cheese bites so badly! I am a huge cheese fan, and when I receive these cheese curd style snacks I am jumping for joy, but this version just wasn’t my favorite. I found the size of the curds to be great, but the flavor of the cheese was just lacking for me. I am used to cheese curds being powerfully cheesy, whereas I felt the black pepper flavor took away all the cheese flavor. I did notice that they offer a variety of flavors, so maybe I just need to give a different flavor a shot…the raspberry version sounds pretty interesting…
Good To Go Cinnamon Pecan Bar – Buy a 9 pack for $23.94
Now this is I think was my favorite sweet snack this month! I have never tried this particular bar before, and I am a fan!!! The chewy texture and the absolute decadent flavor with just the right amount of pecans for fun was the perfect combination. Usually I don’t love cinnamon so much, but in this bar it is fantastic. My kids (who don’t follow a low carb diet) were also very impressed with these, so you know they must be good!
The Verdict: I really enjoy the Keto Krate box, and while last month was a home run for me, this month was more of a mix, and I’m totally okay with that! The point of this box for me is to try new brands, flavors, and snacks that I normally wouldn’t go out and buy without knowing I would like first, because let’s be honest: these snacks are spendy!!! While there were a few misses, I am happy to say I found some new favorites, and it’s just really fun to give all these new snacks a try! I can’t wait to see what they send next month! Please send more beef!!!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Unfortunately, no. If you subscribe today, your first box will be the October box.
COUPON: Save 25% off your first Krate. No coupon needed - just use this link.
Value Breakdown: The box costs $39.99 + free shipping which means that each of the 13 items in the box has an average cost of $3.07. I also want to share that on their website, it states the retail value of this month’s products is $42.15, but you would pay $70.91 in shipping costs for each product, plus you would have to spend $155.79 to get the discount code savings of minimum orders for each product, which would bring your total value to $268.85, so I think $39.99 is a pretty good price to test out different snacks and find new faves!
