Trying out new snacks can be fun, but what if there was a way you could get a collection of delicious snacks geared toward your active lifestyle delivered right to your door? Thanks to Fit Snack, you can. Like other subscription boxes, subscribers pay a fee to receive a variety of goodies in the mail each month. Though you don't choose the products you receive, and Fit Snack doesn't customize boxes, the surprise is half the fun.
How does the Fit Snack team decide what goes in each box? The team attends trade shows and conferences to find some of their products, but they also search groceries isles and take applications from brands looking to be featured each month. They narrow options down by product category, then evaluate the nutritional elements and make final selections.
What's in a Fit Snack box, and how do the products taste? I received a complimentary box to try, and my first impression was that the box is a fantastic value. The box I received had 12 items from eight separate companies, and I was impressed with the variety of options. The Fit Snack team typically include 7-10 items each month in a balanced box that can be shared amongst a household with various nutritional needs.
If protein shakes are a part of your daily routine, NoGii Protein Powder is worth a try. The single serving packets contain two protein sources - whey and quinoa - and the powder is free of artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors. Each serving contains 20 grams of protein, which is a solid amount. The vanilla flavor pairs well with just about anything; mix it with a single serving of yogurt for a protein packed snack.
With the Protein Bakery Cookies and Brownies, it was love at first bite. Both the cookies and brownies were soft and delectable. They've got more protein than your average cookie or brownie, but make no mistake, they're still baked treats. Two chocolate chip cookies have eight grams of protein, but also contain 260 calories, 30 grams of carbohydrates, as 12 grams of fat. But as far high-ish protein, high fiber desserts, go they're great.
I'm still waiting on a lazy weekend morning to try the Oven Baked Organics Pancake Mix, but the fact that it's made from organic ingredients is a big plus. But I dug right in to the bag of Kay's Naturals Cookie Bites. They were
one of my favorite items in the Fit Snack box. The package I tried
included cookies made with ground espresso, which is always a plus, and
one serving got me 12 grams of protein with only 16 grams of
carbohydrates and four grams of fat.
Cinnamon Crunch by Somersault contains bite sized treats that look and taste like itty bitty cinnamon rolls, but they're crunchy. They won't fill you up, but if you're looking for a treat that won't make you feel like you've fallen off the wagon, they're a great option.
The Simply 7 Quinoa and Lentil Chips were also among my favorite items. Making chips out of lentils and quinoa might seem a bit odd, but they're crunchy, flavorful, and the quinoa-based snacks pack more protein (9g/serving) than your average chips. They're also non-GMO, gluten free, and kosher, if that's your thing.
Fit Snack also included their own Raw Almond and Pumpkin Mix, which I really liked, as well as Veggie Chips, which were less likable. The nut mix was a great addition to my afternoon yogurt snack, but the veggie chips left something to be desired with respect to flavor.
Overall, I was impressed with the quantity and variety of products included as well as the value of the Fit Snack box. Subscriptions start at $20 per month, including $5 for shipping, for a full year plan and $24 for a recurring monthly plan that can be canceled at any time. Given some of the items I tried cost up to $4.50 for a single serving, the value is clear.
