These almonds had a weird taste at first. Not bad, just not what I expected. Usually when something says it's cheese flavored you expect it to have more of that powdered artificial taste like that of a chip. These had the flavor crusted on them. And It wasn't a strong cheese taste either. I suspect that the probiotics have something to do with why its had the taste that it did. More of like a health nut thing. It's not to say that its bad, just not what I was expecting. As I ate more of these Sun Biotics Cheesy Almonds they seemed to grow on me a bit. The Texture and taste wasn't as distracting. I probably wouldn't seek these out again as I don't really feel like they did much for me and almonds have decent fiber in them already so the probiotics seem unneeded.
This Chocolate snack by ChocoRite is awesome! ChocoRites Chocolate Crispy Carmel is the closest thing your will find to a replacement for a Little Debbie star Crunch anywhere. Those Star Crunches were my jam back in the day. Obviously its why I chunked up so much weight but if you miss the days of yore of sweet chocolate snacks like this, Chocolate seems to do a great job. I really like it!
Can't remember if I have discussed these before, but I tried them again. Supper yummy and tender. Good flavor too. Great snack. Nice to have at the desk at work although I ate the whole bag in one sitting. Biltong Beef Slices are soft and flavorful and they don't have a lot of unnecessary sugars added to them like some beef jerky does.
This is a good solid bag of Flax Crackers. No seasoning on these babies so they are perfect to use with a French Onion dip or a Sour Cream dip of your choosing. I enjoyed them very much. The serving size seems small, but they tend to break up in the bag so you get a bit more out of each cracker. And look at the carb count. That is almost nothing! Food Alive Flax Crackers are a perfect deliver system for any dips you are wanting to transport to your gut.
This soda kind tastes like soap to me. Bleh! The natural sweetness always get me. I get it if you want the natural stuff. This is probably fine, but for me Sprite Zero does the trick.
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 yummy snack in this months box. I always love to get almonds as I eat them almost all the time So some Sun Biotic Almonds will be nice. Lots of chocolate in this box which is exciting but I am a little Leary as I just started doing Induction again and would love to avoid too many sugar alcohols. Flaz crackers are great for vegging out by the tv. Just need a good dip to use with them. Zevia sugar free soda will be fun to try. I see these in the stores often but never really had one. Im a Coke Zero guy. A beef stick and a bag of dried beef two meet snacks to help me out. and a jar of Elliots Adult Nut Butter. I love that stuff! We actually love to use it for our Low carb Pad This noodles! Glad to get some more of it!
Overall this box is pretty good. Not as surprising as some others as I have tried many of these things before, but all great items so I can't complain in that aspect. Most of all The peanuts butter is the most exciting thing for me. I really look forward to using it again.
If you read this blog than you know I try a lot of beef jerky and a lot of meat sticks. At a certain point they all start to kind of seem similar. Dried meat. This however is not the case. Big Johns Original Beef Jerky is some of the most flavorful jerky I’ve had in a long time. All natural handcrafted slow smoked over real Hickory this stuff has got awesome flavor. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I pretty much down the whole bag in one sitting. Luckily since is the jerky there’s not a lot of carbs involved so I wasn’t too upset. If you’re a fan of beef jerky this is the company but definitely tries to do it right. I would definitely recommend giving them a try for real authentic delicious taste.
I’ve tried some protein chips in the past and most times they have a weird artificial taste left over from them. For whatever reason these Protes Toasted Coconut Protein Chips weren't too bad. And the coconut taste was really nice. They were almost closer to that of a sweeter sugary chip. It was no problem for me to eat these and no real strong aftertaste which was nice. I can never seem to find these kind of snacks in larger bags though. Must be really hard to make and they don’t want to put them out in large quantities in case no one will buy them.
Anyway if you’re missing chips in your life I need a little crunch this is a great substitute. If you’re not a fan of coconut you may not like this flavor but the coconut has a good sweetness to it. I would eat them again.
