Let’s see what’s in the August 2015 Cub Snacks box!
Everything was shipped in a large white box that featured a cute Cub Snacks logo sticker on top.
A peek inside!
There wasn’t really a need for an info card, so a little welcome card was included instead.
The recipe for this month was “Nice ‘n Crispy Bars”. The ingredients — all of which were included in the box — were listed, as well as the kitchen equipment you’ll need to use to make it happen.
Full step-by-step instructions were listed on the back of the recipe card.
All of the ingredients need to make the crispy bars are pictured above. Everything was pre-measured and portioned into sealed & labeled bags or BPA-free containers. The ingredients consisted of rice puffs (made with brown rice), natural peanut butter, cold pressed coconut oil, raw unfiltered honey, rolled oats, pink rock salt, raisins, and dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate drops.
Two child-sized aprons and paper chef’s hats were included for your child to get into the role and protect their clothes.
My girls just turned 3, so we had to closely watch/assist them while making the bars. If it were up to them, the oats up there would have been strewn across every inch of the dining room floor. 😉
Once the dry ingredients were mixed, I melted/blended the chocolate, peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey on the stove. The girls helped mix it into the oats & puffed rice.
“Fun Food Facts” and a crossword quiz were included to kill time while the bars cooled, but my kiddos are still too young to give a rip about those sorta things. 😉 Plus, the bars are supposed to chill for at least 3 hours… So they had to patiently wait until the next day to taste their treats.
The finished bars! They don’t look all that impressive, but I gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty they were. The blend of chocolate, peanut butter, and oats was perfect.
The treats were clearly a success!
We had a great time with our Cub Snacks box and I was really happy with how well our treats turned out. I love that they use non-dairy ingredients with an emphasis on natural/organic ones as well. The monthly cost seems a little steep for what you get, but this box is definitely more about the experience and convenience than the actual monetary value. That said, don’t forget that you can save $8 on your first order with coupon code “2LIT8OFF“! Good through 10/18/15.
