Another dried cheese. These are great because they are in small bags. Flavor is much different from others. Not much of an aftertaste which is good.
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?
First thing I pulled out of the box is a bag of Dried cheese snack. I love dried cheese so these are always a win for me. A bag of Protes Protein Chips to enjoy. I these chips, however seems like this bag may have gotten beat up a bit in the shipping. Next up was a bag of Chocolate chip cookies by Fat Snax. Always nice to have some dessert snacks in the box. A small bag of flavored almonds to try. I love having these in my possession for a snack. A couple of Meat sticks are always a given. The box had an enormous dill pickle. I like pickles, but this thing is huge. Almost a little intimidating. One thing that was a little fun and different is a bag of hamburger bun mix. I never get to eat buns with my burgers so this will really be fun to try and what a great idea to share in june when the BBQs are starting. There was a nice bottle of some BBQ sauce to try which is great. I always love trying new sauces, but usually low sugar bbq sauce is not the best tasting. Lastly there were a few small samples of teas and probiotics, which I do not care for at all personally.

Not much really going on here. These are good olives. Can’t really think of a good way to do an in-depth review on these so I’ll just say that they’re good and leave it at that.
Palmini linguini is a great substitute for traditional pasta for those of us watching our carbs. I cooked mine with some broccoli, grilled chicken, and Alfredo sauce. They were almost indistinguishable from traditional noodles. While I don’t completely understand the process that goes into making these, I will say that they work great. Soft and tender and just the right consistency to be a noodle. I will have to track these down to use again.
Garlic thyme is a great flavor for pork rind. Why do pork rinds always have to have spicy flavors. Let’s be fancy! We’ve earned it.
This bar was better than I expected it to be. The Free Range Chicken Peri Peri Style Bar was a nice taste that is close to that of a Mediterranean chicken. Lots of flavor here. It’s soft and moist with lots of layers of taste. Not quite like a jerky I would consider this closer to that of a meat stick. This would be great to have on the go for a snack to help fill you up. the texture was great too. It felt very authentic and not too processed.
I had high hopes for these Hintons pig Chips chicharrones but I wasn’t a fan. The main reason I didn’t like them was because they had a softness to them that should not accompany this type of snack. Perhaps it has something to do with the type of style of these are advertised as, but mine almost had a wetness to them. I’m used to these being more dried and Fried. They were crispy, but again I feel as though maybe they were not cooked long enough as the center of them was soft. If I missing something here please someone correct me. I don’t know if it’ll change my viewpoint on them but maybe I’ll give The snack a reason for having the consistency it did.
I am beginning to think myself a connoisseur of dried cheese. There are several companies on the market that make this and I am trying them all. I seem to be most partial to those that coming pellet form. By the way pellet form is in unappetizing way to describe any food. But don’t let my description turn you off. Intake brand Crunchy cheese lover original is a great snack. Rich buttery cheese which is dried out and doesn’t leave too many oils behind. It’s not too salty either which is nice. Some dried cheese snacks really leave you parched. I would love to find this in bigger bags to keep in my pantry for snacks. Great stuff.
