Let’s see what’s in the September 2016 SnackSack!
The big white box.
A peek inside!
The information card listed everything inside, along with helpful symbols next to each one indicating whether it’s vegan, gluten-free, and/or non-GMO.
Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs – I had never heard of this brand of vegan cheese puffs, so I couldn’t wait to try ’em. The first bite was kinda iffy, but the more I ate, the more they grew on me. The puffs are made with all natural/organic ingredients including chickpea flour, rice flour, sunflower oil, seasonings, and pea hull fiber. (They taste a lot better than they sound!)
Biscottea Traditional Teatime Shortbread – I’ve gotten these in a few other snack subscriptions and always save them for my parents. They’re all natural shortbread cookies made with pure ingredients like butter and vanilla.
Skout Almond Blueberry Organic Trail Bar – A nutrient-rich food bar made without any refined sugars, dairy, soy, or unnecessary fillers. Ingredients include organic dates, gluten-free oats, almonds, blueberries, and lemon peel.
Kate’s Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Grizzly Bites – These chewy little squares tasted way more like a candy bar than a healthy snack. (And I’m NOT complaining.) Organic dark chocolate, peanut butter, rice nuggets, oats… Heck yeah! So good.
Everly Peach Mango Drink Mix – I have a daughter named Everly, so I’m always happy to see this beautifully named drink mix. 😉 It’s all natural, sugar free, and has zero calories.
Vintage Italia Veggie Pasta Chips – I’ve tried quite a few different flavors of these pasta chips, but I’ve never seen a veggie combo like this one. Sounds good! It’s vegan-friendly and made with non-GMO ingredients including enriched durum semolina, olive oil, spinach powder, dehydrated broccoli, and kale.
Mrs. Thinster’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Thins – Super crispy nut allergen friendly “cookie chips” that are free of corn syrup, GMOs, and artificial flavors, colors, & preservatives.
Fru-licious Fruit Ice Pops – I keep seeing these in subscription boxes, and I’m honestly not a fan. They’re full of sugar (in various forms) and just seem very unhealthy. (I guess I’m kinda picky about my ice pops. 😉 )
Crunchy Rob’s Pineapple Habanero Popcorn – A uniquely flavored popcorn featuring non-GMO butterfly popcorn, sunflower oil, pineapple, extractives of habanero chili pepper, and other all natural ingredients. It’s gluten-free and has just 35 calories per cup.
Tasty Brand Organic Cookies – For some reason I thought all Tasty Brand cookies were vegan-friendly, so I was a little sad to see that these adorable vanilla stars were made with real butter. 🙁 They’ll still make a nice snack for my kids though. Not that I wouldn’t give them any if they were vegan-friendly. (Um, okay, I probably wouldn’t. Shhh!)
Luna Protein Bites in Chocolate Peanut Butter – I love Luna bars, but unfortunately (for me), these protein ones aren’t vegan. However, they ARE gluten-free and low glycemic. I really wish they’d veganize ’em, cos chocolate peanut butter sounds awesome.
As always, a nice collection of tasty morsels from SnackSack. My favorites in the September box were the Hippeas puffs, Grizzly Bites, popcorn, and of course Everly. 🙂 — Remember, if you’d like to try out SnackSack for yourself, you can save 10% on your first purchase with my exclusive coupon code “ROSE10″!
