What Was In My Box?!

Theme: Gleeful Goodies
Something to take delight in…

Munk Pack
Oatmeal Fruit Squeeze in Blueberry Acai Flax

Vegan Cuts Description:

Ready-to-eat blend of whole grain oatmeal and delicious fruits in a squeezable pouch.

20180816_224734

My Review: Not as bad as I expected! It was really fruity with some chunky oat pieces in it. I didn’t like the mushy texture but, I never like these baby food for grown up squeeze pouches. A health nut who likes food that you don’t have to chew would definitely enjoy this!

Full-Size Retail Value: $14.99 – Pack of 6 [4.2 oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
No

Love Grown
Polar Puffs in Blueberry Vanilla

Vegan Cuts Description:

Fun and unique breakfast cereal cups powered by nutrition and made with beans.

My Review: I’ve actually bought a full box of this cereal before and it was okay. It has a light berry flavor but, isn’t quite sweet enough for my liking and the pieces seem stale.

Full-Size Retail Value: $8.24 [6.2 oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
Nope

Vegan Cuts Description:

Fudgy chocolate protein bar with melted chocolate chips, seeds and dates.

wp-1534483944081..jpg

My Review: Gosh, I hate these kinds of bars– they all taste the same, don’t they? Disgusting!

Full-Size Retail Value: $21.99 – Pack of 9 [38g]
Would I Repurchase?:
NO!

Crisp and light oat graham snack made without artificial colors or flavors.

Would I Repurchase?:
Absolutely

Rule Breaker
Birthday Cake Blondie

Vegan Cuts Description:

Decadent birthday cake blondie studded with white chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles.

wp-1534483943962..jpg

My Review: The smell of this right when I opened the bag was just horrific. It smelled like Play-Doh and tasted just like it, too!! Kind of like a fake birthday cake batter, if that makes sense.

Full-Size Retail Value: $27.99 – Pack of 4 x2
Would I Repurchase?:
Never

Sheffa Foods
Granolabar [x2] in Pink Salt Dark Chocolate and in Dark Chocolate

Vegan Cuts Description:

A crunchy, wholesome treat kissed with sweetness and a touch of salt for a guilt-free indulgence.

wp-1534483943983..jpg

My Review: I was given two of these! One had Pink Salt in it and the other did not [the one pictured above did not]. I thought these were excellent! I do prefer a more chewy granola bar and these were extremely crispy but, I loved the chocolatey flavor mixed with the crunchety oat pieces.

Full-Size Retail Value: $20.95 – Pack of 16 [0.85 oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
Yes

LesserEvil
Buddha Bowl Foods Organic Popcorn in Himalayan Pink Salt

Vegan Cuts Description:

Air-popped buddha bowl popcorn seasoned with extra-virgin coconut oil and Himalayan pink salt.

wp-1534557775773..jpg

My Review: If you were around for My June 2018 Curentlys… post, this bag of popcorn will like eerily familiar to you!! I had bought a whole big bag of this before and I loved it. The strong coconut scent is a bit obnoxious though.

Full-Size Retail Value: $14.99 – Pack of 3 [5 oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
Sure

Temple Lifestyle
Hungry Buddha Coconut Jerky De Coco in Jalapeno Lime

Vegan Cuts Description:

Raw coconut jerky snack made from gently dehydrated coconut ‘meat’.

wp-1534483944033..jpg

My Review: Noooo… this was so nasty, man. I couldn’t even swallow it.

Full-Size Retail Value: N/A
Would I Repurchase?:
No

wp-1534483944103..jpg

GoMacro
Macrobar in Dark Chocolate + Almonds

Vegan Cuts Description:

Dark chocolate and almond-packed bar with 10g of plant protein.

wp-1534483944120..jpg

My Review: Tasted EXACTLY like the other freakin’ bar that looked like this up there ^. Boyfriend said this one is a little bit worse though they were both equally terrible on my tongue.

Full-Size Retail Value: $30.10 – Pack of 12 [2.4 oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
No

wp-1534483944111..jpg

Feel Natural Energy
Energy Drink in Dragonfruit Lime

Vegan Cuts Description:

Refreshing naturally caffeinated “FEEL” energy drink in a dragonfruit and lime flavor.

My Review: Aww, I had SO much hope for this can! Too bad it was nasty. It tasted like soda after you’ve let the whole cup of ice melt in it.

Full-Size Retail Value: $27.49 – Pack of 12 [12 fl. oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
No

wp-1534483944061..jpg

Bob’s Red Mill
Nutritional Yeast in Large Flake

Vegan Cuts Description:

Nutritional yeast flakes rich in B vitamins, fiber and protein with a pleasant cheesy flavor.

wp-1534483944014..jpg

My Review: I’ve heard tons of good things about these “cheesy” flakes!! I can never find it at the store though so I was ecstatic to receive this in my box. The cheesy flavor really is there– it’s not quite like Parmesan though… it’s more like cheddar popcorn seasoning.

Full-Size Retail Value: $10.50 [8 oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
Possibly

wp-1534483944071..jpg

Vintage Italia
Pasta Chips in Garlic Olive Oil

Vegan Cuts Description:

Sea salt snack chips made from real pasta with garlic and olive oil seasoning. *BONUS SNACK!* A past fan favorite that we just had to bring back.

wp-1534483944149..jpg

My Review: A really simple snack that will satisfy your cravings for something crunchy. The packaging and taste reminds me of a snack you’d be able to find at TJ Maxx.

Full-Size Retail Value: $2.59 [5 oz.]
Would I Repurchase?:
Sure

  1. Haha. I love the way you express yourself.
    I haven’t eat meat (except for fish very rarely) for 17 years. I eat a lot of this tofu / “vegetarian meat”. It can get tasteless, but it’s not bad.
    I ate vegan pasta once, with vegan cheese. I loved that.

    1. The popcorn is interesting because you think you are tasting coconut because of the scent but you’re not, if that makes sense?… lol some of other stuff was okay but yeah mostly bleh to me too. 😛

  2. This subscription box sounds really cool, with a mix of things you like and didn’t like!
    Those pasta chips look soo yummy, I’m craving them now even though I haven’t ever tried them before. The Granola bars look nice too.
    Does the popcorn taste of coconut or is it salty?
    That Jerky De Coco sounds and looks disgusting!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I agree! It was fun to try all the stuff even if some of it wasn’t so good. 😀 I liked the pasta chips, yum! & the granola bars, too. The popcorn tastes salty but, smells super strongly of coconut!
      LOL YES, the Jerky De Coco was definitely a big miss!!

  3. It’s so interesting to me that a lot of these vegan snacks are either hit or miss. Some of them seem absolutely horrid, while others are great. Now I know to be careful in picking out healthier snacks, lol. XD

    1. LOL yes, always be careful with those snacks in the “healthy” aisle. Some are such a miss!! But wow, there are some real gems, too. ❤ I do enjoy this box even if there are some weirdo snacks in them!!

      Liked by 1 person

  4. Awh man sucks that some of these weren’t as good as you were hoping. The chocolate bars really do look the same I probably would hate them too lol.
    And the Red Bob’s Mill I think it’s based over here? The headquarters are literally 15 mins away, I took my dad’s wife to apply there but that’s irrelevant haha
    The himalayan salt popcorn are sooo good! I love them!!
    This is a great box for those who are probably trying to find alternatives for certain things 😁

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I know… those bars are just ick, the way they look & taste is all the same!
      Gosh!! I forgot what I was eating that also had Made In Oregon on it!! I thought of you but can’t remember the food. lol.
      Yess!!! The popcorn is good, right?! Do they taste like coconut to you?! To me, they do not but boyfriend swears they do.
      I think it’s a really fun box, too. 🙂 I spend way too much buying random snacks just because they are dairy-free & they’re rarely good so I’m glad I am getting this to tame myself, hahaha. Every time I pick something up at the grocery store now… I’m like “wait, it might be in my box!” lol.

  5. I love the gomacro bars. I put them in the microwave (unwrapped) for about 10-15 seconds and they get so gooey, like a heathy cookie. I had to stop buying them because I loved them so much. Also nooch is life. I make a quick pasta sauce with sauted tomatoes and mushrooms in olive and and sprinkle nooch and other seasonings. So cheesy. The omni bf likes it like that as well. Or I blend it in when making cheesy sauces. I don’t eat it raw.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Interesting!! I wish I would have known to microwave it, I bet it’s way tastier that way. I’ve never heard of Nooch before. I’ll have to look it up! Thanks for the recommendation, love!! ❤
