April 2016 Fit Snack unboxing time!
If you’re new to them, Fit Snack is a snack subscription box that’s curated to include items that are both well balanced and nutrient dense. When selecting products to include in the box, they use the Fit Snack “Perfect 10″. Put simply, they look for snacks that fall into one or more of these categories: Nutrient Dense (high in protein, complex carbs, low sugar index), Consciously Made (GMO free, organic production, sustainably farmed), and Diversified Energy (gluten free, clean eating, paleo, raw).
Each box will contain 6 to 9 healthy (yet satisfying) items that have total retail value of at least $30. While most of the items fall into the “snack” category, they also send cooking mixes, oils, and the like.
Subscriptions are $24/month (shipping included), or less with longer, multi-month commitments. It also looks like they ship worldwide. If you join Fit Snack using my link, you’ll save $3 on your first box!
Let’s see what’s in the April 2016 Fit Snack box!
A peek inside.
An info card listed all of the snacks, as well as accompanying photos, short descriptions, and a few discount codes.
Vintage Italia Garlic Olive Oil Pasta Chips – I’ve gotten these pasta chips in quite a few different snack boxes. They’re authentic Italian baked fresh pasta snacks made with semolina flour and Italian herbs. Not my favorite “chips”, but not awful.
Betty Lou’s Nuts About Energy Balls – A gluten-free energy ball made with all natural, GMO-free ingredients including peanuts, oats, and sea salt. Each ball has an impressive 13 grams of protein.
Betty Lou’s Caramel Peanut Smackers – Smackers are like a smaller, healthier version of a Snickers bar. Gluten-free caramel and peanut nougat covered in real milk chocolate.
Chinook Seedery Hatch Green Chile Sunflower Seeds – Large, non-GMO sunflower seeds in easy to crack shells. Hatch Green Chile flavor is made with a blend of chili pepper, dehydrated vegetables, black pepper, and other natural flavorings.
Wilde Chicken Bars – Two flavors of these slow-baked “meat bars” were included: Turkey Cranberry and Sweet Thai Basil. Each bar is made with real meat, ancient grains, seeds, fruit, and vegetables. One bar has 10 grams of protein and just 100 calories.
Purely Elizabeth Granola & Puffs Cereal – An ancient grain cereal made with granola clusters, pumpkin seeds, chewy figs, and millet puffs. I was happy to see that it was a ready-to-eat cold cereal, as opposed to a hot oatmeal which I’m not a fan of. The flavor was a bit on the bland side though, and I wasn’t crazy about the gross-looking dried figs.
Fit Aid Recovery Drink – The listing on Amazon describes this supplement drink as “a inch inchsynergy inch product”. Either I’m really out of touch with the supplement/energy drink world, or there’s some serious editing that needs to be done. From what I can gather from the bottle, this is a paleo-friendly, doctor developed “performance and recovery drink”.
Health Warrior Peanut Butter Cacao Chia Protein Bar – A vegan-friendly protein bar made with chia, oats, quinoa, pea crisps, cacao nibs, peanut butter, and other all natural plant-based ingredients. Each bar contains 10 grams of protein and is certified gluten-free.
April’s Fit Snack wasn’t my favorite, but mostly due to the lack of vegan-friendly snacks (which I can’t hold against them). However, I also think they could have included a few more items to fill out the box/increase the overall value.
If you’d like to try Fit Snack for yourself, they’ve kindly given me a special discount to share with my readers. If you join Fit Snack using my link, you’ll save $3 on your first box! No coupon needed — just use my link!
April 2016 Fit Snack Review
Just an “okay” box this month. A few additional items would have rounded it out nicely. (Preferably vegan-friendly ones. 😉 )
