Let’s talk subscription boxes.. They’re all the rage. From BirchBox’s monthly makeup boxes to BarkBox ‘s monthly box for dogs.. there is a subscription box for nearly everything! I like the idea of subscription boxes. I think they’re fun, and I like how they allow you to try new products that you might not have tried otherwise. I’m sure its no surprise to you all that my favorite type of subscription box is obviously one centered around health and fitness. 🙂 However, I’ve tried quite a few and they’re typically expensive and not really worth the investment. With a majority of the subscription boxes I’ve tried, I found there either weren’t enough samples, the samples were ridiculously tiny, or I couldn’t eat half of the samples because they were far from ‘healthy’!
FitSnack is different from all the other fitness/health subscription boxes I’ve tried. Their boxes are big, and they are jam packed with samples! The samples are typically large sizes and they are actually products that I can eat. On top of that.. there are so many different samples I never know where to start. I’m going to break down exactly what was in my most recent FitSnack box for you so you can see just how awesome it is!
Here’s what was inside:
Lenny & Larry’s The Complete Cookie
Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, 16g of Protein. Holy yum! This cookie was delicious! I have tried these cookies before, but the only Flavor I tried was the White Chocolate Macadamia Cookie a while back. I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate, but I liked it anyways! I was super excited to see the Chocolate Chip flavor in my box. It was chewy, loaded with chocolate chunks, and so delicious! While these cookies are much healthier than any other cookie you’ll probably find in the store.. they are still a cookie, (with close to 30g of sugar per cookie). I enjoyed half of this cookie as an after dinner treat, and I’m saving the other half for another night.
Simply Seven Snacks Sea Salt Quinoa Chips
and Sea Salt Lentil Chips– Ever since I started eating clean a few years ago, I rarely eat potato chips. As delicious as these crunchy snacks are, they’re typically greasy and have no nutritional value. I was pretty excited to try these chips. They are gluten free, non-GMO, trans-fat free, and have no artificial colors or preservatives. Both of the chips were very good! The quinoa chips were my favorite. I liked the flavor of them, and the fact that they had 9g of protein in the small bag!
Compete Chocolate Energy Bites-This was the only thing out of my box that I didn’t actually try. The first ingredient on these snacks were sugar, so I passed these along to my brother who is a distance runner and swimmer. These bites are made to be high in sugar, and carbs to help fuel you through long workouts. He said they were very good, and kept him full throughout this workout.
Oven Baked Organics Gluten Free Pancake Mix -I am in love with this mix! I typically make my own whole grain pancakes, with whole wheat flour or almond flour, but I was super excited to give this mix a try. Instead of just having plain pancakes, I added some chopped apples and cinnamon to the mix to make an Apple Spice Pancake. The pancakes came out very light and fluffy- they were delicious!
Nogii Gluten-Free Protein Powder– I was super excited to try this Whey/Quinoa Protein Powder . The protein powder is gluten free, has very minimal ingredients, and actually tasted good! I’m not normally a fan of vanilla protein powder, but I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor of this! It tasted like vanilla ice cream 🙂
Level Life Bar- Caramel Chocolatey Peanut– I had never heard of/seen these bars before I received them in my box. This protein bar was just ok. It didn’t have as much protein as I typically like to have in protein bars that I eat. It was very sweet (almost too sweet) and it felt like I was eating a candy bar, not a protein bar. I wasn’t really a fan, but it wasn’t the worst bar I’ve ever had!
SunButter Creamy Squeeze Pack -This was my first time trying sunflower seed butter. I have recently been seeing sunflower seed butter in the store. It has definitely been growing in popularity with most schools going peanut and tree nut free. I’m a huge fan of peanut butter, and relatively loyal to it – so I had never branched out to try sunflower seed butter. I really liked the taste of this sunflower butter, and that it came in an on-the-go packet! I wish this didn’t have added cane syrup in it, but I still enjoyed it!
FitSnack Veggie Chips – I saved the best for last. These things were so delicious, and highly addictive. I may or may not have devoured the entire bag in one sitting. The chips are made out of actual vegetables – sweet potato, taro, green beans, and squash. They were super crunchy and lightly salted. Easily my favorite snack in the box! I wish they sold these on their website because I would totally buy them in bulk!! So good!
FitSnack Almond/Sunflower Seed Mix – I liked that there were 2 ingredients in this snack: Raw Almonds and Raw Sunflower seeds. It is nice to see a simple snack, with pure ingredients. I’m a big fan of raw nuts, and I typically make my own mixes at home. I really liked the pairing of just almonds and sunflower seeds. The re-sealable package made this the perfect on-the-go snack.. I took it from school to work (pictured here.. with a big green tea to take on a long week!)
The verdict: FitSnack is WELL worth the money for the amount of samples, and quality of the samples you get to try! I would totally recommend this box to anyone looking for some fun healthy snacks to try!
