August 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 August 2016 Fit Snack box!
The familiar teal box.
A peek inside!
An info card listed all of the snacks, as well as accompanying photos, short descriptions, and a few discount codes.
Dandies Vanilla Marshmallows – I was SUPER stoked to see this package of vegan marshmallows greet me upon opening the box! Traditional marshmallows contain gelatin and are therefore non-vegan, but these babies are 100% gelatin-free. They’re also all natural and non-GMO!
Vintage Italia Alfredo Pasta Chips – I’ve gotten plenty of these pasta chips in subscription boxes, but never this flavor. (Unfortunately, it’s one of the few that isn’t vegan.) These are made with non-GMO ingredients including semolina flour, olive oil, and parmesan cheese. Each bag has just 120 calories.
Honey Stinger Pink Lemonade Organic Energy Chews (BONUS ITEM) – Organic energy chews made with organic honey, organic grape juice concentrate, organic tapioca syrup, and other natural ingredients.
Elmhurst Harvest Pistachio Milk – I’m always happy to try new non-dairy milk beverages. I’ve never had pistachio, so I’m curious to see what it’s like. It’s lactose, soy, gluten, & GMO-free and has just 60 calories per serving.
Barney Butter Almond Butter – I’ve been eating a ton of almond butter lately (mostly as a dip for apple slices), so these will definitely get used ASAP.
Detour Simple Caramel Peanut Bar – This totally looks like a Snickers bar, but is way better for you. It’s packed with 10 grams of protein and is free of artificial flavors & sweeteners. It’s also gluten free.
Bite Fuel Chocolate Chip Power Bites – These non-GMO, gluten-free cookies boast an impressive 6 grams of protein per serving (18 grams per bag). They’re made with natural ingredients and have no artificial preservatives or trans fats.
Raw Rev 100 Spirulina Dream Bar (BONUS ITEM) – A 100-calorie snack bar made with organic ingredients including cashews, dates, sunflower seed kernels, spirulina powder, and sprouted flax seed. It’s vegan, gluten-free, and contains no refined sugars.
Kay’s Naturals Veggie Pizza Protein Puffs (BONUS ITEM) – These pizza flavored protein puffs are made with all natural ingredients, are gluten free, and contain 12 grams of protein & 4 grams of fiber per serving.
Fuel 100 Electro Bites in Pumpkin Spice (BONUS ITEM) – Described as an alternative to bars and gels, these little bites will help you power through your workouts. Each pack contains 90 calories and plenty of electrolytes to keep you energized. Ingredients include potato starch, organic coconut oil, organic agave syrup, and real pumpkin pie spices.
Hotze Vitamins HealthyPak (BONUS ITEM) – Doctor-designed vitamin packs to keep your energy levels high and immune system strong.
Coupons – I normally don’t include photos of coupons, but I always do when there’s one for a FREE product. Nice!
There were SO many bonuses in this month’s Fit Snack box! My favorite items were the Dandies (yum!), almond butter, pistachio milk, and Raw Rev bar. — If you’d like to try it out for yourself, they’ve kindly given me a special discount to share with my readers.
