October 2015 Fit Snack Review: Portable Snacking in a Box

Once again, I was excited to find out what was in store for me in the October Fit Snack box.

October Fit Snack Box
This time, Fit Snack packed in a bunch of portable snacks, great for days full of errands.
TruProteins Whey Protein Powder in Coconut Cream Pie is sourced from grass-fed Australian cows and contains no GMOs. I did try this because it’s pretty low in fat, and it was very coconutty. It mixes better in a shaker bottle than in a glass with a spoon.
Raw Rev Protein Bar in Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt is made from minimally-processed plant-based ingredients. I really liked the taste; it was definitely candy bar-ish. I liked that it packed in 11 grams of protein and was quite satisfying.
Caveman Foods Chicken Primal Bar with Sweet Cherries is basically a dream come true for me. I love anything meat, and this was sweet and savory all at the same time. There are no added hormones and no nitrates, so I felt good about eating it, too.
Love Grown Foods Mighty Flakes in Chocolate Joy are made with beans and lentils. It’s like eating chocolate flavored corn flakes, but without the wheat and corn. I ate mine with almond milk.
Fiona’s Vanilla Sunflower Granola is a pretty tasty yogurt topper. I’ve only had a tiny bit, but it’s really good and will liven up my plain Greek yogurt nicely.
Yummy Health Snack Bars in Coconut and Peppermint are both full of natural ingredients. They’re aimed at kids, so they’re not packed with sugar and things that will have the kiddos bouncing off the walls. I’ve been trying to foist the peppermint one on my kids, but they have expressed zero interest. (Because my husband is allergic to coconut, I don’t feed my kids coconut in case they are also allergic.)
High Brew Coffee only has 20 calories and is cold-brewed. It’s a great source of caffeine without the jitters and with the delicious taste of cold brew coffee, all in a cute little can.
Bonus: Peak Energy Mints (which I haven’t tried, but am packing for my Manhattan trip) have caffeine, D-Ribose, and B vitamins for an extra kick out of your slump. Allegedly you won’t crash or have jitters, so I’m all for it. You’re supposed to dissolve the mints in your mouth 15 minutes before an activity (or when you need a boost).
Overall? It was a pretty solid box. As usual, Fit Snack included a card explaining what everything is, plus a bonus workout on the back that uses outdoor stairs. If you’re interested in signing up for your very own Fit Snack box, use the link below and get a free gym bag:
