Fit Snack Box November 2020 Review
The information card is a bit flashier these days, as a full-color folded brochure. But there’s still a workout and a list of items in the box. There is also a QR code to get to online videos, recipes, and other subscriber-exclusive content.
On to the items:
This brand shows up fairly often in Fit Snack Box but they do usually send different flavors. I am saving this to pass on to a family member who likes meat sticks because I’m a vegetarian and my husband isn’t really into these. This is a good opportunity to point out that although some snacks in this box may be vegan, gluten-free, etc., this is not a dedicated box for any particular special diet, and it’s best to subscribe if you’re an omnivore or live in a household with others who don’t have a lot of dietary restrictions. This is kosher, keto- and Paleo-friendly. I do not know if the beef is grass-fed as I can’t find that information.
Rx AM Oats Maple (2.18 oz) – Buy 12 for $34.99
This is a new product for me. They are really sticking to the “putting egg whites in everything” strategy. Normally the egg whites make for a weird texture (see Rx Bars and Rx Nut Butters) but here it actually works. This is, by far, my favorite product from this company. The calories are a little higher than I’d like but nutritionally they are pretty well balanced.
This is an energy drink (well, it has caffeine and B vitamins) with some branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) so it may also be useful for recovery. (BCAAs may help with delayed onset muscle soreness from workouts.) It is supposed to taste like grapefruit and pineapple but, to me, unfortunately, it tastes like artificial sweetener and B vitamins. (You know that smell when you open a bottle of drugstore brand vitamins, that’s usually pretty much all from the B vitamins.)
Ultima Replenisher Cherry Pomegranate Electrolyte Drink Mix (3.6 oz) – Retail Value $20.99
All right, so this alone is worth nearly all the month-to-month cost of the box. As it happens, it’s also my favorite item in the box. We have received stick packs of different flavors of this product before, and they’re kind of expensive, like $1 per serving, but this is less than $1 per serving and I have also found out they have 90 serving packages for only twice this cost, which is approaching an amount I would actually pay for this product. I don’t necessarily think I am hurting for electrolytes, but I like the way this tastes and so I put it in my water at about half strength when I exercise. There’s no sugar and I believe this is about the one drink sweetened with stevia that I actually enjoy.
Rx Nut Butter Vanilla Almond Butter (1.13 oz) – Buy 10 for $15.99
I’m not such a fan of this. It tastes all right – I am a fan of vanilla and almond butter alone and in combination. But, the egg whites give this an odd, gummy texture that I don’t care for. I am also not big on nut butters in pouches like this because it’s difficult to get all of the product out.
Top Seedz Crackers 6 Seed (2 oz) – Buy 4.5 oz for $7.99
We’ve been seeing this brand some in Fit Snack Box recently, but the products have been varied. These are seed crackers and they taste like seed crackers. But I like the texture a bit better than some other seed crackers; I think it is the arrowroot, which means they have a little starch, which I think makes for a better cracker. These are vegan and gluten-free.
Be Bold Energy Bar Almond Butter (2 oz) – Buy 8 Bars for $28.00
We have received one of these before but it was pretty tasty so I don’t mind getting it again. These are kind of high in sugar with 12 grams of added sugar, but they do also have protein, fat, and fiber in a nice mix. I probably wouldn’t eat one every day but they are going to be a little healthier than a candy bar, at any rate. I did not put this in the refrigerator although that is something suggested on the package (I’m not entirely clear on why, as other products with the same ingredients don’t require refrigeration).
Be Bold Energy Bar Peanut Butter (2 oz) – Buy 8 Bars for $28.00
This flavor is new to me, though. I think I like it a little better but I am just a big peanut butter fan. Nutritionally, it is pretty similar to the almond butter bar.
Lesser Evil Popcorn Himalayan Gold (0.46 oz) – Buy 36 Bags for $23.50
This brand shows up all the time in Fit Snack Box but there are really quite a lot of different items and I can generally eat all of them (I am vegetarian). This is one of my favorites because the butter flavored coconut oil makes it taste like movie theater popcorn which, in my opinion, is way better than plain (aka sea salt). It is a little fatty because of the coconut oil but that is to be expected and it’s not like you’re eating buckets of it.
Verdict: The November Fit Snack Box had 9 items for an average value of $3.21 per item. This was a pretty good month. Even though I didn’t love everything, it is impossible to please all subscribers all the time, and I got to try a lot of new things. I was happy to receive the electrolyte drink mix and that was the highest value item in the box, and the oatmeal was a surprise find.
