These are some fantastic almonds. Legendary Foods Buffalo Blue Wing seasoned almonds have great flavor and really packs a punch. I eat almonds all the time and sometimes it’s very easy to get tired of the same taste. So that’s why it’s great to have snack pack like this around that really kicks it up a little bit. They’re not really that spicy either. The taste of blue cheese mixed with the hot wing flavor works really well together and actually creates more of a mild flavor. Closer to like a tangy cheese taste. I experienced no pain from spice and only good flavor. I only wish I could find these in the store near me.
I was a little bit hesitant at first to know if I would like this chocolate snack cake mix. Some of the other baking products that I’ve tried in the past that say they’re low carb always seem to have a weird aftertaste to them. And the sweeteners that use are not great. So to make a low-carb cake that actually taste good it’s quite a bit of a challenge.
I would say that the Good Deeds company has actually done a pretty good job with this one. No weird aftertaste, and certainly the sweetener doesn’t overpower the cake. The stuff would be great with a little whip cream on the side. Low-carb with no guilt. It’s made with sunflower seeds and probably some other stuff that I don’t understand. But it has a carb a piece and it’s a great substitute when the families eating birthday cake or getting together for a special gathering.
Honestly I would probably pick the stuff up more regularly if it wasn’t so expensive to get. Besides paying for shipping costs spending this much money on a cake mix just doesn’t seem right. It’s honestly just as cheap for me to avoid cake altogether. And let’s be honest if you’re on a low-carb diet and really trying to do it seriously you probably are not even thinking about cake. But for a special occasion why not.
This meat snack was a nice change of pace from the usual beef sticks and jerky. It's almost closer to that of protein bar in size, and is a very filling piece of meat. Lots of good flavor here, but not on the end of too spicy either. All in all very tasty. These Sweetwood Cattle Co Bully Bars would be great to keep in your bag or at your desk for a quick snack. I give this guy a 8/10.
Ayoba-yo Dried Beef Has been some of the best natural beef snack I have tried. Their ingredients are extremely natural and they don’t do a lot to the meat except to try and enhance the flavor a little bit. Great taste and not too tough to chew. This brand really tops my list of beef jerky’s I’ve tried. Keeps the carb count low and is a great snack. So many other beef jerky are loaded with sugar and a natural flavoring. These guys keep it simple. Look at the ingredients on that list. I haven’t had a single product from them I didn’t like.
I don’t know, there’s not much I can say about these Skout Pumpkin seeds. They taste boring to me. I mean they’re really nice and salty which is a plus for a snack. But I don’t know if I’m a fan of pumpkin seeds without additional flavoring. That’s just a personal thing. If you’re a fan of pumpkin seeds these are probably just fine. And the Himalayan salt is wonderful. But again I’m not a big fan of just plain pumpkin seeds so these may not be something I come back to. That’s me.
This review is in very in-depth because I’m not really an expert on pumpkin seeds so if you are please chime in.
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.
The October box is a nice well rounded box of snacks that cover both savory and sweet for low carb fans. I first off want to say that I personally prefer to have the tissue paper over the paper stings for packaging. Way less clean up and far easier to handle. Alway has a protein bar to try which is good. The Raw Rev company seems to be decent enough and I liked tis bar before. I like the looks of this Sweetwood Beef bar thats in the box. Looks really meaty and flavorful so I can't wait to try it. A chip substitute is always fun. Protein chips haven't been my jam in the past, but I like the idea of toasted coconut. More beef jerky is ok. It's a nice big bag so there is definitely a value there. A banana Nush Cake! I love Nush Cakes!!! Yum! More cake!!! Good Dees Chocolate snack cake! Cake everywhere! Wonderful! Almonds to try. Heavy on the flavor which I love! I would be happy with some Almonds in every box if I could have it. Lastly a jar of BBQ sauce. I use BBQ sauce all the time to spice things up so this is great to have some to reduce the guilt.
I thought this box was a great selection. Nothing disappointing to me at all. Not real big surprises either. Still a solid lot of snack and items to get me through the month. I can wait to try them all.

My wife and I discovered a wonderful new low-carb crêpe recipe several days ago. It makes a nice thin crêpe and they work wonderful for a casual Saturday or Sunday brunch. But one of the things missing from mine was a nice hazelnut spread. So I couldn't of been more excited to get one in the mail recently. Created with no sugar added Cleaneating NougatCreme Hazelnut Spead is a bit smoother than some of the others I've tried. It doesn't feel as waxy and itself is a little bit more oily. It's actually closer to that of the consistency of Nutella. Very yummy with hardly any carbs in it. So far this is my favorite of the hazelnut spread with no sugar and low carbs.
this company seems to do really well when I comes to chocolate. Give them a try and see what you think.
Guys stop what you're doing. I have reviewed a few different low-carb cookies on this site. Some good, some bad. Guys this is the one. This is it! Somebody did it no joke. Sweet mother of Mercy this is the cookie you have been waiting for.
I don't know what the Know Better Cookie company does that makes it work so well but it works very well. An awesome blend of ingredients that creates the perfect soft chewy sweet cookie that you've been missing.
Let me mention something to put it in perspective. At the time I was eating my cookie my wife was enjoying some actual sugary candy. I offered her a bite. She took a piece and indulged. The thing she noticed was that usually when she goes from real candy to something that I eat there's a distinguishable difference. It's usually found in the sweeteners and it usually makes the thing I'm eating not taste very good. That was not the case with this cookie. You should also know that my wife doesn't like coconut very much. This cookie has some coconut in it but it's not overwhelming and my wife was able to enjoy it just fine.
I'm a fan guys. I'll definitely try some of their other cookies in the future.
and Man these things are huge!
Keto Carne brand beef jerky always does a great job. The few times I've tried it the thing that stands out about them is that the flavor is strong. That definitely stands true for the flavor in their spicy beef jerky. The meat has some kick to it and the more you chew the more that flavor comes out. I shared some of this with my wife and she definitely got a little bit of a kick in the back of her throat. She couldn't eat very much because of the heat. But she was not born for struggle.
Anyway I like these guys. Any Jerky fan you should look them up.
I can honestly say that Rawxie's Crunch has grown on me. Very first time I tried this I thought it was kind of weird. Collection of seeds and seasonings mix together. He wasn't quite a trail mix and it wasn't quite granola. And it wasn't a cracker replacement either. I couldn't really figure out what it was. But when you come to except that it's at something it's actually quite marvelous. Rawxie's does a great job by putting a lot of seasoning in the bag. So there's no shortage of flavor here. I try to couple different kinds and they all stand out in their own way. Smoked paprika has a nice Pepper taste to it that isn't too overwhelming or spicy. The smokiness comes through and dwells for a few seconds.The big Takeaway for me here is that it doesn't feel like you're just eating a bunch of seeds. I actually have good flavor in here that makes for worth while snack.
I actually like to keep a bag of this at my desk. Great for curbing those little cravings you have throughout the day.
