February SnackSack time! — This month’s box theme was “L for Love”.
If you haven’t heard, SnackSack is a relatively new subscription box that focuses on delivering natural, “junk-free” snacks to your door every month. All of the snacks included will be free of “artificial junk” and offer a mixture of all natural, vegan, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and fair trade products. They’ll all be tucked inside a reusable burlap sack, which is shipped in a large box for ultimate snack protection.
Subscriptions are $24.95/month with free shipping. Discounts are also available for multi-month plans. — For a limited time, you can save 10% on your first box with coupon code “ROSE10″!
Let’s see what’s in the February 2016 SnackSack!
As always, the snacks were all shipped in a large box with a green SnackSack logo on top.
A peek inside.
The information card listed everything inside, along with a brief description. There are also little symbols next to each one indicating whether it’s vegan, gluten-free, and/or non-GMO. This month’s card also included a handwritten thank you note. 🙂
Good Health Sea Salt Veggie Stix – My girls love these! They’re crunchy snack sticks made with potatoes and other vegetables including spinach, green peppers, and celery. They have 50% less fat than regular potato chips and contain no artificial flavors or colors.
Pipcorn Mini Kettle Popcorn – I remember seeing these guys on Shark Tank! Pipcorn is made in small batches using kernels much smaller than the ones used for traditional popcorn. This kettle corn version is both gluten-free and vegan.
Little Secrets Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Candies – When I first saw these in the box, I was super stoked because I thought they were vegan-friendly. I bought a package of chocolate peppermint candies from this brand around the holidays and they were dairy-free and am-aaaazing. Sadly, these do contain dairy. 🙁 However, they are free of artificial flavors and are made with fair trade cocoa.
Jackson’s Honest Purple Heirloom Potato Chips – Small batch chips made with purple heirloom potatoes kettle cooked in coconut oil. These were good, but didn’t really taste much different than regular ol’ white kettle chips.
Nourish Snacks Monkey Love – I thought Nourish snacks were only available via their subscription box (if it even still exists?), but I just saw these same packages for sale in my local Wegmans last week. Cool! Monkey Love consists of chewy little granola bites made with bananas, chocolate, and other good stuff. Yum.
Chosen Foods Mango Bites with Chia – We received these in last month’s box, but in a different flavor. Not my favorite snack, but not bad. I tried to pawn them off on my kids, but they weren’t havin’ it.
Cosmos Creations Apple Cinnamon Crisp – A puffed corn snack made with non-GMO corn. Since it’s puffed, there are no pesky hulls or kernels to deal with. A nice toddler-friendly treat.
HannaMax Baking Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Chips – Thin & crispy cookie “chips” made without any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
Ona Cookies in Maple Pecan – I’m not crazy about maple, but these were really good! They’re made with a few simple ingredients including almond flour, honey, maple Syrup, and pecans. They were very dense and rich… with only 69 calories per cookie.
Just Fruit Bar in Apple Raspberry – This bar is made with pure fruit puree and fruit juice concentrates. I was going to try it myself, but instead gave it to my girls for a snack. They were pleased. 😉
Natural Sins Crispy Pineapple Thins – These are definitely the thinnest fruit snack I’ve ever eaten. They’re delicate slices of real pineapple sweetened with cane sugar. I think I would have preferred them without the added sugar, but they weren’t bad… Even though the thinness made me feel like I was noshing on dried butterfly wings. (Ew.)
While I didn’t enjoy this month’s SnackSack quite as much as January’s awesome offering, it was still a solid box. My favorites were the Monkey Love, Pipcorn, Ona cookies, and Veggie Stix. A vegan-friendly chocolate treat or two would have rounded out the box nicely. 😉
