Keto Krate April 2021 Review
How can it already be April?! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, but as I get older, time sure does seem to fly. After a chilly month, I sadly fell back into some bad habits and happened to gain back the 5 pounds I had lost. With two camping trips booked, I am bound and determined to trim down a bit to feel a little more comfortable in my bathing suit, so I was excited to receive this month’s Keto Krate box to set me up with some keto-friendly snacks to help keep me on track….that is if the kids don’t snatch them up first! Scroll down to see what items I received this month.
Each month we receive a brightly colored pamphlet that gives us a bit of a kick-start each month. While it doesn’t include information about the included items, we do get a sample start-up menu, recipes, coupon codes, and success stories. All of the information is very helpful in encouraging and motivating me to stick with this lifestyle. As usual, we also received the links to the month’s product info in Krate Club, and tips on how to manage your subscription. I love how each page sticks to the Spring theme — the watercolor floral is calming and beautiful!
Original Beef Stick – Think Jerky – Buy a box of 10 for $22.50
Fat 5g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 10/10
As you may know, my family is a bit meat obsessed, so beef sticks are the big-ticket item every time we open this box. I am happy to report that this original flavored, grass-fed version contains 0 grams of sugar, 8 grams of protein, and only 80 calories. More importantly, it only contains 1 net carb and is totally delicious. Meaty, salty, and not too greasy, this hearty flavored beef stick was loved by all and disappeared all too quickly. I do have to say the nutritional value was perfect for my keto re-start, and I will be ordering more of these to have on hand for snack attack emergencies.
Keto Cookies – Snickerdoodle – Buy 24 cookies for $29.99
Fat 15g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 8/10
When I think of a snickerdoodle cookie, I think of a cinnamon and sugar-laden cookie that is extremely sweet and melts in your mouth. I’m not extremely fond of the traditional version but was interested to give this keto one a try. The overall texture was decent, and it looked like a cookie, which sometimes can be challenging when using almond flour, but the taste wasn’t quite the same. Don’t get me wrong, the flavor was good, but I noticed the typical “cold sensation” my mouth gets from eating too much erythritol. This isn’t something that would stop me from eating a tasty cookie, but I personally would rather sample a chocolate chip version.
Genius Keto Barbecue Snack Chips – Buy an 8 pack for $21.59
Fat 14g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 10/10
Admittingly, I think one of the items I miss most while following a keto diet is a good old chip. I have tried almond flour and coconut flour versions and while they can be tasty, they also can be dry and resemble a cracker more than a crispy chip. I have to say my mind was blown when I bit into this low-carb version finding them just as crunchy as a regular Dorito! I love the triangle shape, as it is so close to a “regular” chip, and while the barbecue flavor was different than a Lay’s B-B-Q chip, I found myself enjoying them so much that I couldn’t get my hand out of the bag…which leads to the one thing I didn’t like about these chips: the bag is much too big for the amount of chips received! Fill it up, people!! I need more!
Keto Farms Cocoa Dusted Almonds – Buy a pack of 6 for $14.99
Fat 12g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: 10/10
When I saw this packaging all I could think about was bitter cocoa powder and how I just couldn’t wrap my head around the combination, but boy was I in for a treat! These extra sweet, crunchy almonds are perfectly dusted in a cocoa powder that brings out all the natural flavors while adding a dessert vibe. I literally could not get enough of these nuts, and have put them on my grocery list — they are seriously that good!
Legendary Foods Blueberry Toaster Pastry – Buy a pack of 10 for $24.99
Fat 7g | Net Carbs 4g | Taste Score: 5/10
Growing up I ate my fair share of Pop-Tarts, and while I have matured out of those, I was excited to see how this low carb version might compare. Blueberry is a fine flavor, but not one I typically enjoy unless in a muffin or fresh from the bush. This pastry was almost sickeningly sweet, with a very artificial flavor. The pastry itself almost tasted a bit too salty? I thought it looked appetizing enough but just couldn’t get over the strong flavor. I think I will skip this and stick to the real berries, but was happy to give it a shot.
Crispy Cuts Sweet Chipotle Pork Rinds – Buy a pack of 12 for $22.54
Fat 6g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 10/10
When I first started following a low-carb plan, pork rinds scared the heck out of me, but now years into it, I am actually quite fond of them. This sweet chipotle version was the perfect balance of sweet and spicy, and the large amount of air in the packaging kept these light airy crisps well intact. I would definitely be okay receiving these again and do plan on purchasing the 12 pack in the near future.
Skuta Chili Maple Pumpkin Seeds – Buy a pack of 6 for $24.99
Fat 18g | Net Carbs 3g | Taste Score: 10/10
Hooray for pumpkin seeds! Like I’ve mentioned before, I am a pumpkin farmer, and I love me some roasted seeds, but these hulled bits of deliciousness are just so tasty I can’t get enough! The sweet maple and chili flavoring mix perfectly well with the nuttiness of the seed and has me reaching into the bag for more and more and more. This flavor combo is quite unique and has quickly risen to take the top spot for my favorite new snack!
Proudly Pure Bacon Parmesan Crisps – Buy a pack of 4 for $24.95
Fat 7g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 7/10
I have found parmesan crisps to be a hit or miss kind of snack as they can be quite strong in flavor. I decided that while these were pungent in parmesan flavor and quite salty, the bacon flavor balances them out a bit, and they made for a delicious addition to my daily salad. On their own, they were a little too powerful, but as a little extra, they were perfect! I have to say the shape was quite interesting — the picture almost makes it look like fried chicken!
Fat Snax Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies – Buy an 8 pack for $14.99
Fat 16g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 9/10
Chocolate chip cookies are one of my weaknesses when it comes to sweets, and I have had a bit of a hard time finding a version that is anything like my top-secret non-keto recipe. While these mini cookies won’t ever take the place of my sugar-laden favorites, I have to say these are darn good for a low-carb cookie. The almond flour is the perfect ratio, and forms a nice-shaped cookie with a good texture, and isn’t as crumbly as some I have tasted in the past. The chocolate chips are on par as well and left me feeling satisfied and happy.
Keto and Co Shortbread Keto Cookie Mix – Retail Value $9.99
Fat 9g | Net Carbs 2g | Taste Score: NA
Yes to large baking mixes in this box!! I was really excited to see this spendy item included, and can’t wait to try it! I just ran out of butter, so I was unable to make these in time for the review, but based on what I’ve read, there seems to be mixed emotions regarding these. I checked out the Keto and Co website and found people use this as a base for low-carb pecan sandies, and thumbprints! Sign. Me. Up! As soon as I get to the grocery store, I will be making these.
Real Garlic and Herb Beef Stick – Buy a 12 pack for $14.99
Fat 5g | Net Carbs 1g | Taste Score: 5/10
I was really excited that we received two meat sticks this month, as the last couple of months have only featured one. Garlic is one of my favorite flavorings, but when it came to this beef stick, I was a bit overwhelmed by the saltiness and the garlic flavoring…It was just way too strong. My kids (who typically go nuts for all things meat) took one bite and then each downed a glass of water before politely declining any more tastes. I passed the leftovers off to my husband who concurred, though polished it off as it would be a crime to waste meat!
The Verdict: Keto Krate has been a fantastic way to try a vast variety of low-carb options without purchasing large quantities of snacks without knowing how they are going to taste. Sticking to a keto diet can be hard, but with the incredible selection of low-carb foods, it makes it easier to stay the course. I was happy to see the return of two meat items in this month’s box, even though we didn’t end up caring for one. I appreciated the curation of items and the mixture of sweet and savory snacks, finding new favorites, and being able to cross a few dislikes off my wish list. Keto snacks tend to be pretty spendy, so this sub helps me decide which brands to purchase more of on a larger scale without wasting money on items I might not like. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for next month!
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 May 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 11 items has an average cost of $3.63. I also want to share that on their website, it states the retail value of this month’s products is $40.49, but you would pay $33.00 in shipping costs for each product, plus you would have to spend $39.21 to get the discount code savings of minimum orders for each product, which would bring your total value to $112.70, so I think $39.99 is a pretty good price to test out different snacks and find new faves!
