It seems everywhere you turn nowadays, there is a new monthly subscription box to fulfill some niche. Instead of just providing “stuff,” VeganCuts is actually providing something everyone needs–healthy snacks!
VeganCuts sent me their July Snack Box to try out, and it was full of all kinds of goodies from the sweet to the savory and even included some beverages. Everything from the box was tasty, and I’d eat any of them again, though I did have some favorites. Here is the full listing of items in the box with my top three listed first:
- Vintage Italia Garlic Olive Oil Pasta Chips. My wife and I both thought that these were amazing and hands down the winner of the box. Crunchy chips combined with the experience of eating garlic and olive oil covered pasta. So good!
- Tasty Bite Pad Thai. I’ve been looking for a new quick and easy lunch I can take to work and make in a hurry, and I have a winner. Tasty Bite is a big step up from something like a dried noodle cup, cooks in only a minute, and is delicious! We’ve already added these to our regular grocery shopping list.
- D’s Naturals Mint Chocolate Chip No Cow Bar. My wife didn’t like this at all, but I thought it was delicious and fulfilling. This is a protein bar, not a candy bar. They also have a peanut butter cookie dough flavor I really want to try.
- Chic-a-Peas Sweet BBQ Baked Chickpeas. These were a good crunchy snack, though I think I’d prefer the sea salt flavor.
- Bell Plantation Peanut Butter Thins. From the makers of PB2 come deliciously sweet peanut butter crackers.
- Nurtyvitta Banana Bar. This was probably my least favorite snack. I’m not a huge fan of sweet snacks or dried fruit, but it was edible, and I’m sure it would appeal to folks who like this sort of thing.
- Milas Foods DipIn Hummus Pack. You can’t really go wrong with hummus, and these guys come in a convenient travel size–perfect for on-the-go snacking and dipping.
- World Peas Ranch Flavored Peas. I’m a big fan of dried peas, especially wasabi ones, so I was excited about these. My wife loved them, and, while they were quite tasty, I didn’t get the ranch flavor I was hoping for.
- Lundberg Redwood Smoky BBQ Multigrain Crackers. These were good though nothing special. I’d definitely eat them again and give some of the other flavors a try.
- Scheckter’s Organic Energy Drink.I used to drink Monster by the case load but have long since stopped drinking energy beverages because of all the crud in them. Seeing an organic, all natural energy drink piqued my interest, and I’m glad I tried it. Sheckter’s was delicious, and I’d definitely drink it again.
- Flamous Falafel Chips. Falafel in chip form. Need I say more? If you like falafel, you will like these.
- Numi Organic Amber Sun Turmeric Tea. I have to admit this is the one thing I didn’t try. I’m not a big tea drinker, and turmeric tea does not sound appealing at all. My wife thought it sounded delicious, though, so I gave it to her to try. (Results still pending.)
VeganCuts also includes a nicely printed card with a listing of all the snack manufacturers so that you can easily connect with them, which is a great way to remember what you had after you’ve devoured it all and thrown away the wrappers.
The VeganCuts Snack Box starts at $19.95 per month for a month-to-month subscription, but the price goes down if you pay in advance for a longer subscription and includes free shipping in the United States. So is the VeganCuts Snack Box worth it? The value of the items in the box totaled up to $36. That’s almost double the cost right off the bat; however, none of these items can even be purchased individually online, so, to actually get all of these items, you’d probably end up spending a couple hundred dollars. The ability to get individuals of so many new items and try them out before deciding to buy them in quantity adds quite a lot of value as well. If you like snacks and want them to be healthier, VeganCuts Snack Box is a total no brainer.
In addition to their Snack Box, VeganCuts also has a Beauty Box. Anyone who is a vegan knows how hard it is to find good cruelty free beauty products. VeganCuts also has a bunch of great curated boxes at big discounts assembled out of products from past boxes and other items like the Men’s Grooming Box which is only $40 for over $100 worth of stuff (and if you’re looking to get me a gift, this would be a great choice.) Lastly, they offer gift subscription and gift certificates. If you aren’t vegan, don’t have any interest in trying them, but still made it this far, I promise you that giving this as a gift to a vegan you do know would be a sure win.
