The August Fit Snack box arrived right before I took off to New York for a conference. There was only one item that I could toss in my bag without worrying about it getting crunched or confiscated by TSA, but that’s okay.
I did love the August Fit Snack box, though. Included “officially” (as in, listed on the card they put in every box, which also has at-home workouts you can do on the back):
Elmhurst Harvest Pistachio Milk: I’ve heard of cashew milk and almond milk, but I’d never heard of pistachio milk. I’m now a believer. I liked it chilled and in my coffee. It has a creamy flavor with a bit of nuttiness.
Dandies Marshmallows: I am not proud. I ate these in an “I need SUUUUUGAAAAR” moment. I felt slightly better knowing that they’re vegan and non-GMO. They tasted just like regular (i.e., gelatin-based) marshmallows.
Vintage Italia’s Pasta Chips: Not gluten-free, but very tasty. I got the alfredo ones, which were pleasantly cheesy. As an Italian-American, I’m not sure if I’m supposed to like them, but I do.
Detour Bar: The August Fit Snack box had the Detour Simple bar, which doesn’t have artificial ingredients, gluten, GMOs, sugar alcohols, or trans fats. This was the one item I tucked away in my personal item for mid-air snacking. The caramel peanut bar I received was really good, on par with other protein bars but without the icky aftertaste.
Barney Almond Butter: I don’t even know how to express how much I love Barney Almond Butter. It’s smooth, it’s creamy, and it comes in snack packs. If I had wanted to, I could have slipped this inside my liquids bag and snacked on it as I roamed Manhattan.
Bite Fuel Protein Cookie: These cookies have 18 grams of protein per bag – but a bag is actually two servings. They’re gluten-free, and they’re quite tasty, especially if you dunk them in milk, as I like to do. I think these were the only cookies I’ve ever been mad at, though, because they’re not great for post-workout or pre-workout. They’re a treat, albeit a slightly healthier version than the packaged cookies hanging around the cookie aisle at the grocery store.
Bonus Item: Hotze Vitamins: Fit Snack has been including bonus items in the boxes, and the August Fit Snack box was no different. The vitamin packs are $39/month. You can save 10% using the code FITSNACK10 if you want to try them.
Fit Snack also included some cool items that weren’t on the official product card. I received the veggie pizza protein puffs I like, Honey Stinger bites, sodium bites (both of these are great for testing on distance runs), and a Raw Rev bar.
Overall, Fit Snack put together another great box. The September one just arrived, so I’m looking forward to opening it.
