Not much that distinguishes this Cheddar Air Cheese dried cheese from some of the others out there. Very similar to Moon Cheese. Tastes great with a good crunch. If you like dried cheese this works great.
The KetoWatt Peanut Butter bar claims that it crushes sugar cravings, fills you with energy, and keeps you in ketosis. While those things may be true, the bar itself lacks a bit of flavor that some of the other low carb bars on the market have. Peanut butter seems to be one of the easier flavors to hit, and this bar does do it. The bar even has big pieces of peanut in it. But the flavor overall is kind of bland. Its edible. But not at all anything that stands out for me. It’s a 4/10 at best.
It's important to mention that the bar only has natural ingredients inside. Not many low carb bars can claim that. That definitely effects the taste. I guess you sacrifice a little flavor to know what's going in right?
The Paleo Ranch Garlic Jalapeno Kippered Beef stick is pretty tasty. It's tender strip of meat but what stands out it’s the taste. It has a nice level of heat from the jalapeno but It's not too spicy at all. Overall good flavor. Not too hard and just the right level of juicy. 8/10.
I love a good soft baked cookie so it's good to see some new options out there on the market for those of use trying to eat a bit healthier. The Nui Cookie company has some cookie flavors that are a little fun too. I tried their Nui Birthday Cake Cookie which overall was good. It was a little bit crumbly for me and didn’t hold together as much as I would have liked, but it was soft baked and chewy. The taste was good but the birthday cake flavor wasn’t very strong. It was really closer to that of a sugar cookie with some rainbow sprinkles on it. This cookie was decent. Not the best I have had but hold strong and Is a good basic cookie. 5/10 probably.
This stuff is really good. It taste like a fancy Hamburger. No joke. Like mustard and ketchup, but not in a gross way. Like a slight sweet way. Yummy. I ate too much of it in one sitting. Gem the a try Three Jerks Filet Mignon Jerky.
Not entirely sure what these things are. Are they a cookie? Are they a sweet? A candy? I don’t really know. And I am not entirely sure that It matters to be honest. The Krunchy Melts Dulce De Leche Meringues are yummy and sweet and a perfect treat that’s easy to consume without too much sugar. I love that they are light and not too rich either. I would say that the consistency reminds me of honeycomb candy I used to eat as a kid. Kinda hard at first but then they really soften up and melt away in your mouth. Perfect for the lover of all things caramel.
This stuff was pretty good. It's kind of like a little packet of fudge. Not exactly sure why a person would need it outside of helping to address a chocolate craving. A quick easy snack.
If you read this blog you know that I am constantly on the look-out for Low Carb products that meet my lifestyle and help to make my life a bit easier. Saving time on cooking, and having a variety of snacks available help to make the diet a bit easier on myself so I don’t get bored with the same old things. So when I discovered that there was a new subscription service that sends you products that fit within the low carb lifestyle I was on board.
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.
So every box has a nice little welcome card that explains all the items you received and then usually has some promo codes in case you need more of something. I have already found myself using this for a snack I receive in my last box that no one carried in the stores near me. I had to have some more so having a little discount was great to give me the incentive to get some shipped to me.
Lots of great items this month and a couple that I was pretty excited to try out. So what was in my box this month?
The box this month felt like it was jam packed with items. And while I wouldn’t classify them all as snacks, most of them were and they seem promising. First thing I saw was some Meringues cookie things. No idea what they actually are, but I love big stuff like this. There are a few options for dried meats here. A filet Mignon jerky, a beef stick, and a Bar. All look great. The jerky looks extremely fancy. I love cookies and its great to see more cookie options out there. So a birthday cake cookie is right up my aisle. There is some water mix to try which may be good and some dried cheese which I always love. A peanut butter bar in the protein side. Also some fat oils to eat which I usually don’t care for. This was a decent box because it had a lot in it, but I'm not really a fan of these fat packs and I think they are not much use to me. So those items I usually don’t care for.
Overall a good box. But would love to see less of the fat packs and more traditional snacks.

I dropped the ball and totally forgot to take a photo of these buns when they were done. Sorry folks,
But these are fantastic. I was totally worried that they would not be dense enough or for that matter be too dense. That they would have a weird after taste but that wasn’t the case at all. These things were perfect and filling.
First up, these are supper easy to make. 3 ingredients added to the mix, mix it up, knead the dough, and make some balls to bake. They fluffed up and turned out perfect.
So how do they taste? I used them a few different ways over the past few days.
The buns are kind of bland, but in a good way. They don’t take from what ever the real source of the meal is and they help to really fill you up. I enjoyed it. I would easily get some of these again.
