Vegancuts Snack Box September 2021 Review
Vegancuts is a snack subscription box that curates a collection of vegan snacks delivered to your doorstep each month. The contents of the boxes change each month as they highlight different brands and flavors every month. However, you should always expect to receive something salty, fruity, and even breakfast selections. Each month, your subscription also supports an animal sanctuary.
This review is for the Snack Box, which is $24.95 per month.
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.)
Vegancuts items are all packed neatly in a cardboard box. The box is high-quality and can be great for storing your vegan snacks all in one place. Every time I open the box, I feel like I’m unwinding a puzzle, where every piece fits perfectly with another one. It’s incredible to me how from a somewhat medium-sized box, you can fit eleven different snacks and drinks.
I’m always thankful to look over the cards Vegancuts includes with their boxes. The card lists everything inside the box and gives you insight into each snack’s flavors, nutritional facts, and quick facts.
What’s Inside The Box
Double Chocolate Snack Bar – $23.94 for a pack of 9
Think of having a miniature chocolate cake you can take with you. These bars are exactly that. With five grams of protein and only 160 calories per bar, they are a guilt-free snack or morning breakfast if you want something sweet. I loved the double chocolate flavor that was intense enough to feel decadent but not overpowering.
Nacho Cheese Pigout Porkless Pork Rinds – $3.99 for a bag
Here’s a disclaimer: I don’t like pork. I’m a vegetarian, but I’ve never been a fan of pork at all. So, finding these in the box was a bit of a disappointment for me. On the other hand, my husband, who’s a happy carnivore, was thrilled to see these and devoured the bag in less than 5 minutes. While he doesn’t say these are your real-deal pork rinds, he was surprised to find out these are vegan, gluten-free, and have about seven grams of protein per bag. So much so that I was tasked with getting these again so we could have “man snacks” around the house more often.
Sweet Potato Puffs – $29.99 for 6 bags
When you go to Spudsy’s website to purchase these sweet potato puffs, you get a GIF of a dancing sweet potato – that was me while eating these. They’re the perfect marriage between cinnamon crunch, puffs, and that distinct churro flavor. Each bag is only 4oz, and I say only because I wish I had a gigantic bag of these around all the time. They have just the right amount of sweetness, spiciness, and crunchiness to tackle all of your afternoon cravings. Out of this month’s box, this is one snack I’m certainly getting again.
Sparkling Botanicals Black Lemon – $40 for a 12-pack
I will forever be thankful to Vegancuts for introducing me to Sparkling Botanicals. They’ve changed my vegan drink game forever. The black lemon tea we received this month was sublime. It was citrusy, refreshing, floral, and energizing. I had mine over lunch paired with a salad, and it felt like the perfect companion. I would probably keep some of these in my house for a hot afternoon – living in Florida, I get lots of those!
Lonestar Vanilla Pecan Food Bar – $24.99 for a 12-pack
Although I have high standards for food bars, this was a pleasant surprise. Made with dates, pecans, vanilla, and chia seeds; this was a food bar I enjoyed eating. As I’m sure many of you do, too, I often eat food bars when I’m running late or as a pre-workout snack. In that case, these Bearded Brother vanilla pecan bars are the ones to have around. They’re slightly sweet but still have the pecans’ nuttiness, making them perfect for the fall season.
Organic Dried Apricots – $5.99 for a pack
Two things I love: dried fruits and apricots. One thing I didn’t like: the ones from Sunny Fruit. While I’m a big fan of dried fruit, I never realized I don’t like soft and mushy dried fruits, which is what these are. The first bite was very mushy, almost as if I was biting into a rotten apricot. Though the texture wasn’t my thing, the flavor was there. So, I guess it all depends on your preferences.
Ummunityaid Go – $39.99 for a 30-pack
I love how Vegancuts makes selections based on the month. As the seasons change, a great immunity drink can help keep our defenses up. This was a powerful blend of everything I needed to keep my immune system in check with vitamin D, echinacea, magnesium, and zinc. The flavor was orange, but as with every hydration drink, it had that fizzy, washed-out citrusy flavor that you really can’t wrap your finger around. Nothing extraordinary from this powdered drink, just a good one to try and have in the house.
Maple Multigrain Muffin Instant Oatmeal – $16.99 for a 3-pack
I have a love-hate relationship with most instant oatmeals. This one, in particular, has a 10/10 for flavor, texture, and ingredients. But, 1 packet still has 10 grams of added sugars. That’s 21% of the recommended daily value. Outrageous if you ask me. This was a disappointment for someone who cares deeply about the sugar contents in the things I eat. If they could lower the sugar on this one, I would probably eat this as breakfast every day. I paired mine with fresh banana slices, blueberries, and strawberries, and the result was fantastic. I even think this would be worth baking into a real muffin because the flavor is terrific.
CLIF Nut Butter Filled Bar – $19.80 for a 12-pack
This CLIF nut butter bar was a real surprise. While these don’t look delicious at first glance, the flavor is there. These bars are as rich and decadent as they can get. I received a mix of chocolate and peanut butter with what seemed to be rice crispies, but later reading the ingredients, I realized it was rolled oats. All in all, these could be great to keep in your purse and have as breakfast, afternoon snack, or post-workout snack.
Maple Walnut Snacks – $4.49 per pack
Do you remember those cinnamon nuts they used to sell at the malls? These taste exactly like that! They are delicious walnuts covered with maple syrup and cane sugar. They have a soft crunch to them but tons of flavor and richness. Of course, as a sweet treat, I wouldn’t say these are your everyday snack, but they’re fun to have around the house for whenever your sweet tooth cravings kick in.
BBQ Flavored Baked Puffs – $19.99 for a 6-pack
Please don’t hate me, but I’m not a fan of BBQ sauce. While my husband was all over these baked puffs, I tried one and didn’t like them one tiny bit. The BBQ flavor was overly sweet and spicy, plus the puffs are very airy, so you feel like you’re eating a BBQ cake. Still, per my husbands’ reviews, if you like BBQ, then you will love this vegan and gluten-free option. So, I’ll let you try them on my husband’s word, and hopefully, you enjoy them as much as he did.
The theme this month was “Fall-Off-Your-Chair-Tasty Treats,” a collection of fall favorites that included some of their subscriber’s most-loved snacks. To me, this had a great variety of different flavors and types of snacks. However, I wasn’t a big fan of most of the flavors, but I can see it was a personal taste. On the flip side, I’m happy they included pigless pork rinds and BBQ puffs because it shows non-vegans there are vegan-friendly options to some of their favorite carnivore snacks.
