I'm a lucky girl. Vegan Cuts sent me their August snack box to try out! I've been wanting to try a Vegan Cuts box forever, so this was a fun treat for me.
If you're unfamiliar with Vegan Cuts, they're a vegan online marketplace that features all sorts of vegan goodies. In addition to buying items a la carte, you also have the option to try a subscription service where Vegan Cuts will send you a box full of different samples to try out each month for $19.95. Currently they offer a snack box, and a new beauty box (which I'd love to try as well!)
For August's box, there were several items I couldn't test out being I'm gluten-intolerant. Jim on the other hand had no issues testing those out. Here's a quick recap of what came in this month's box and what Jim and I enjoyed most.
The Macro Greens Nutrient Rich Superfood Bar was one of my favorites. I loved that it was gluten-free, chocolate, and not too sweet. I had it as my mid-morning snack at work and it kept me satiated through lunch. I'd for sure pick these up again if I saw them at my local grocer.
Lady Jane's Toasted Hemp Seeds w/Sea Salt was also pretty yummy, though I had some difficulty not spilling the seeds all over my desk due to its packaging. I really enjoy hemp hearts on things like salads and such, and I had no idea they even came roasted so that was a bit of a treat for me. The only thing that surprised me is for such a tiny package how calorically dense these seeds are. Granted they are full of nutrients, protein and keep you full, they had a bit more fat in them than I usually eat for a snack.
The Boulder Canyon Rice & Bean Chips were by far my favorite! They had this interesting umami flavor I think due to the Adzuki beans. They were light, crisp and slightly salty. I ate them solo, they were so flavorful on their own I wouldn't want to ruin the experience dipping these in anything. I will for sure pick these up again if I spot them at my grocer. Yum!
Jim tried out the Food Should Taste Good Multi-Grain Tortilla Chips and really enjoyed them. He liked that they were gluten-free as well. He also tried the Snapea Crisps and Nature's Bakery Fig Bar, which he mentioned in passing he liked but I didn't get to press him for details.
There's a few items we have yet to test which we are going to soon. This includes the Smooze Fruit Ice (which is currently freezing in my freezer), the Seaweed Love Roasted Seaweed, the Viana Mild Jumbo Veggie Snack Sausage to Go (which looks yummy but I can't eat gluten, boo!), and the EatGreenTea.com sample pack.
All in all we really enjoyed everything we got to taste in the box. It's not too late to order your own August Vegan Cuts Snack Box and try all these items yourself. Just visit www.vegancuts.com and subscribe today.
