We all like snacks, right? I don’t know about you, but snacks can be hard to keep in check and not turn into a whole meal (I’m looking at you potato chips). So when Vegan Cuts asked if I wanted to review one of their snack boxes, I was ALL in!All of the products were new to me, but a few I have heard of or seen, jut not tried yet. I actually loved the variety of the products in the box, ranging from teas to chips to a glass straw (my most used/favorite item in the box so far).
The first thing I opened straight out of the box were the Mediterranean Snacks Sea Salt Lentil Chips, because they were chips (duh) and I was intrigued by the lentil part of them. I liked them, but probably wouldn’t search out for them on my own, simply because they weren’t enough of a perfect snack for me, but I liked trying different chips! Next up, I tore into the Nii Almond Chocolate Chip Bar. It was crazy good and I still have a half of it in my cabinet, but that isn’t going to last long at all. I would recommend these bars for traveling or a quick snack. The next day I tore into a couple of the breakfast goodies. The Vigilant Eats Maca Double Chocolate Superfood Cereal was a hands down winner in my box. I loved that the flavor was an espresso chocolate flavor and was the perfect blend of sweet, oat-y, and crunchy all at the same time. I would purchase this if I needed a quick breakfast or a traveling option for breakfast too, especially since the package is the bowl and all that is needed is hot water. I also drank the OatWorks Pomegranate Blueberry oat powered smoothie as well, which was a great mid-morning snack at work. I loved that it wasn’t chunky or anything, but was still really filling and flavorful. I usually eat lunch around 11am since I get up so early, but after having this during the mid-morning, I was able to hold off until 12:30pm (big deal in my book, I’m usually starving by 11).
Moving on the other products in my box, I had a glass straw, savory teas, protein powder, and a nut butter packet. The Simply Straws glass straw was my favorite by far out of the box, especially since it is something I can use over and over again. In true food blogger fashion, I was riding the paper straw train for the past year or so, but I don’t love that they are just thrown out and can get soggy really fast, so this glass straw was perfect. I’ve already used it 5 or so times and it seems to be durable and easy to clean, win win!
The Numi Tea savory teas were the hardest products to wrap my head around, it took me a while to really get into in the first place, so the idea of savory teas kind of freaks me out. Needless to say, I this one is something I’ll have to get used to, but I would be willing to try it again! The NuttZo nut butter packet is perfect for a peanut butter lover like myself, because I tend to eat nut butters straight off the spoon, I loved this packet! Finally, I have the MCT Lean Protein Powder left from the box. I tried a bit of this mixed with some water and was surprised by how much I liked it. I don’t usually seek out protein powders, because I picture those huge plastic bins of some mystery powder and that freaks me out, but I like that this powder uses pea protein, which is way less gross than whatever is in those other powders.
Overall, I would highly recommend Vegan Cuts Snack Box, I think it would be the perfect way to try a lot of new products and find out what other great vegan food companies are out there. I’m excited to possibly start subscribing to them soon, bring on the snacks!
