Fit Snack Box March 2021 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 the items you’ll find in the box. There is also a QR code to get to online videos, recipes, and other subscriber-exclusive content. I greatly dislike viewing websites on my phone (too small to see with my vision being what it is) so I wish an alternate way of accessing this content was available.
On to the items:
Bakery on Main Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola Bar (1.2 oz x 2) – Buy 3, 6 oz Boxes for $21.57
This brand has really been doing a subscription box push lately but I am still happy to see these because it is a DIFFERENT product than we’ve been bombarded with lately. These were pretty tasty, I think because they’re high in sugar. These are made with gluten-free oats but they do contain soy protein and they are vegetarian but not vegan because they do contain honey despite being free of dairy and eggs.
Craize Guava Toasted Corn Crackers (1 oz x 2) – Buy 12, 1.75 oz Packages for $24.00
We haven’t seen these for a little while. I have had the guava ones at some point in the past but I don’t remember if it was from Fit Snack Box or somewhere else (these have been popping up in multiple boxes). Anyway, these are some of the sweeter varieties. I’m not super familiar with fresh guavas but these have a vaguely tropical flavor that overshadows the corn. I think this might work with those chocolate nut butters that often come in snack subscription boxes although it was decent plain as well.
Wicked Cutz Uncured Bacon Jerky, Breakfast Style (2 oz) – Retail Value $6.49
This is uncured bacon jerky; you’ll get a fair amount of jerky and meat sticks in Fit Snack Box and I see why because the keto diet is so popular these days. As for me, I am holding on to all the meat sticks and jerky and will mail it off to a family member who is not a vegetarian one of these days. This is not something you should eat if you are watching your sodium intake as it has 1260 mg in one serving, which is 54% of what you should get in an entire day! It also manages to have 6 grams of added sugars, so maybe this is not so great for keto? But it is high in protein. This is something you should probably share, or consume in moderation. That is just so much sodium.
I don’t know how much this costs because it’s currently out of stock, but I’ve linked to the Amazon page so you can find it when it comes back in stock. Similar to the peanut butter and chocolate ones up above, this is pretty high in sugar but quite tasty. This one also is certified gluten-free but not vegan due to the honey content, and is processed on equipment that processes a lot of different kinds of peanuts and tree nuts (granted, this will work just fine for a lot of people). I am not a regular consumer of granola bars but I would at least consider this one occasionally if I was, for flavor and texture reasons!
Caffe di Artisan Liquid Coffee Concentrate (4 pack) – Buy 20 Assorted Pods for $29.99
I gave this to my husband as he is the coffee drinker in this house. He said this was good coffee. He noted that each pod makes about 5 oz of coffee so if you are into big mugs, you may need to double up. This does not require a machine, it is a liquid concentrate so you just add it to a cup and add hot water. The pods are biodegradable, which is the selling point here. One thing I like, as a non-coffee-drinker, is this just does not smell the same as a coffee machine at work, the smell is much less objectionable to me. I could see using this in baking as well.
Bakery on Main Ancient Grain and Seed Superfood Unsweetened Instant Oatmeal (1.75 oz x 2) – Buy 50 Packets for $38.00
This looks like it’s undergone a packaging change or some rebranding (we received the newer version in the box, don’t worry). It is unsweetened and unflavored and honestly pretty plain. But I guess that means you can customize with your own stir-ins and toppings. I like a simple spice mix that I make up at home (nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, cloves) and some honey or maple syrup. This takes a fair amount of water compared to the amount of product but I think that’s because, like most commercial instant oatmeals, it has some oat flour in addition to actual oat pieces.
Hilo Life Super Cheesy Crispy Cheddar Cheese and Almonds (1.48 oz) – Buy a 6 Pack for $14.98
Now, this is actually a keto snack. (Not that my diet is even remotely keto, I’m writing this as I wait for a giant Uber Eats order of pasta and bread and cheesecake…) But it’s a mix of almonds and freeze-dried cheese. Like all freeze-dried cheese, it’s pretty salty but the almonds temper that somewhat. If like me, you have a bit of trouble finishing an entire serving of Moon Cheese, you may find this a little more to your liking. This was a new brand and new item for me and I’d be willing to try their other flavors as well.
Verdict: The March Fit Snack Box had 11 items (counting the doubles as 2 items) for an average value of $2.63 per item. This was a pretty good month for Fit Snack Box. Although I couldn’t eat the jerky, everything else was vegetarian, and I was pleased to try some Bakery on Main items that were not just granola for once. They make a lot of different breakfast items, after all! My husband was a fan of the coffee, which was a brand and concept new to both of us, and the nuts/cheese mix was new to us as well.
