Keto Carne Original Beef Jerky
a haiku review
not dried out slightly sweet
jerky for us all
I’ve posted about this brand of flax crackers before. They are some of my absolute favorite. Perfect for using with dips. They don’t have too strong of a flax taste and hold up really well for dipping. I love using this with some hummus. While there is an a lot of options to choose for the comes to flax crackers, of the ones that I have tried Curt’s Classic Flax Crackers stands out the best.
if you are a fan of pork rinds like I have become and you love these Southern Recipe sea salt and cracked black pepper flavored small batch pork rinds. They’re not too oily, have just the right amount of crispiness, and are perfect size for snacking. Salt and pepper flavor works really well together and isn’t overly spicy. They really let the natural flavors do a lot of the work. I consider this to be more of a simple pork rind, but in terms of quality they really do put in the top notch in rinds in these bags. If you’ve ever had pork rind that’s been over cooked or not puffy enough then you probably know what I’m talking about. These are exactly what you want.
I love trying low carb baked goods. They’re so hard to find and they can be absolutely hit or miss. The Good Dees company Chocolate Chip cookies make some great cookies. I enjoyed these especially since they didn’t have a strong stevia taste. Sometimes the artificial sweeteners taste too fake and they stand out and ruin the food. I don’t think that’s the case here. The cookies came out a little chewy in the center, just the way I like them. Overall these are a great snack choice and super easy to make.
I don’t know if the price is really something I can get behind, but I do feel that cookie Boyd for anyone who’s on the low-carb or keto diet.
Keto Krate is a new subscription box that is available in the long list of to your door monthly box subscriptions that is specifically geared towards the Keto and low carb lifestyle. They guarantee that all items in the box will be less than 5 carbs per serving and that the value of the collected items products will always exceed the cost of the box.
My desire to find some new snacks that were low carb is really what made me decide to give it a try, that plus who doesn’t like a surprise now and then.
My review's for the individual products in this box will be cut short here. I will be doing more in-depth reviews on each product and share links to those reviews here as I complete them. Right now I just want to talk about this month's box and what I got as a whole.
This months box of keto snacks Is jam packed with a few more items than usual. Box totals out with twelve items which is a ton more than the average seven. I had mixed emotions about this box this time. About half of the items seem like great practical items and the other half I’m not quite sure what to do with.
This box has two different types of bars. One is a peanut butter protein bar and the other is a bar made a free range chicken almost closer to a jerky. There’s a can of Palmini pasta substitute which I was excited to try. There’s a sample of nut butter, some burn butter which I’m not sure what that is, and a tea packet to try. I personally love nut butters. Always fun to try one when it’s flavored so I look forward to that. I have no idea what burn butters are for. I think some people use them in coffee. A snack pack of olives and a snack pack of pumpkin seeds, And a small bag of chicharrones to try. I do like pork rinds and I’ve been enjoying them more lately. So that will be fun to try out. The last two items in the box Are the most mysterious. An item described as a fat pack and what appears to be a savory crisp made of seeds and various natural ingredients. I haven’t quite figured out how to use either of these yet. We’ll just have to wait and see and I may have to do some additional research.
Usually the keto krate has a bit more of a wow factor for me than this month. That’s not to say I didn’t like these items, it’s just that there’s several of them I’m not sure are in my wheelhouse. Things like Burn Butter & Fat Packs, seem like those are for hard-core keto people. I’m usually happy with some nuts and some jerky. Still it’s fun that they try new stuff. But of all the boxes I’ve gotten from them this may be one of my least favorites.
One package of Skinny Salamis has two mini salami meat sticks in it. The Casbah Pork flavor of these meat sticks is nice and kind a different. It almost has a slight Indian taste to it as though it was filled with some curry spices. It’s hard to pinpoint the flavor exactly and that’s the best thing I could come up with. These things are firm and closer to that of a really hard salami. I like them.
So there is another keto snack box which is recently entered the mix. I have written about a couple of the others in the past and I think it’s alway great to compare what’s out there. My Keto Snack Box is a subscription snack box that is delivered to you once a month. At $38 a month they guarantee you will see 7 to 10 different snack choices all at 5 grams of carbs or less. Pretty decent concept.
So let’s take a look at what what’s in the box for April? The first two items out of the box are a low calorie soda and Energy drink both by Zevia. Drinks are fun but I usually prefer just one in my box so I can have room for something else. Some crunchy cheese snacks are always my favorite. A box of some fancy pistachios are nice. Pork rinds are great but small bags are a tease. I love the flax crackers they sent. They are some of my favorite kind of crackers. Some Beef jerky in the box is a usual but whether it’s a good jerky is really the question. Lastly they added some matcha Green Tea powder to the box which is great for a late night hot drink.
Overall the box this month is pretty good and has a nice well rounded amount of items in it. Some good snacks in the box. Not crazy about getting two drinks in one box, but all the other stuff is great. I look forward to see what else these guys have planned.
hey, these are some good beef sticks. People’s Choice Small Batch Beef Sticks have great flavor, tender, a little bit of moisture, and they taste fresh. Usually if a beef stick will hit those categories and it’s top-notch for me. You have a thing I like about these is because of the amount of pepper involved had a nice space to them. They weren’t too hot, but strong enough to give a little kick. The other thing I notice is the price. Usually for beef sticks of this quality you pay about a buck a stick. A package of these goes for about six dollars. That’s pretty good.
This is the second cookie that I have tried by the Keto Kookie company. The peanut butter Keto Kookie is even lower in carbs then some of their others. The flavor is really good and the cookie is pretty soft. The issue I had was that it was fairly crumbly and didn’t stick together very well. But the taste was good. You don’t just tasted like a softer version of a Nutter butter. You do get two small cookies in each bag which is nice because then you can share with a friend or if you like me stare at your wife/significant other intently while you eat both.
We’re seeing more and more low-carb cookies show up on the market that have a much better taste and quality. These guys do a good job. Well I wouldn’t say that they’re my favorite I’d say they do a pretty solid cookie.
