Sleek Treat Review January 2017

Sleek Treat is a Sugar-Free Subscription Box with a focus on Low Carb treats safe for pre-diabetics, diabetics and those interested in living healthy without sacrificing gourmet flavor. They Kindly sent us this box for review.

Sleek Treat showed up at the post office a few days ago, and I almost forgot what it was. This sugar-free candy subscription is still fairly new, so I didn’t really recognize the name at first. It wasn’t until I opened the box and saw all the awesome goodies inside that I remembered what it was. How could I forget about this awesome little box. I’ve been waiting for something like this to show up on the market.

I’m excited about this box for two reasons. First, I myself try to stay away from sugar as much as possible. I truly believe that sugar is to blame for a lot of the health problems we are experiencing in today’s world. Second, my Dad is diabetic, but not because of genes, obesity, or lack of physical inactivity. My Dad, is and always has been extremely healthy but he went through some major health issues with his pancreas a few years back and is diabetic as a result. Any who…….I LOVE learning about boxes and products like Sleek Treat now that our family is affected by diabetes and since I try to avoid sugar. Sorry for the long explanation, I’m just very excited about this box and wanted to give you the background info.

Enough about that, let’s have a look at what we received in our January box:

Hi-Fibar Pumpkin Spice Orange Granola

An excellent source of Fiber in a Pumpkin Spice Orange Granola Flavor, ideal for a cozy night at home or quick snack on the go.

Granola is my comfort food. Actually, most breakfast type meals are my comfort foods – granola, cereal, and toast. I was planning on gifting this box to my Dad but I REALLY want to keep the granola for myself…..is that wrong?

Coco Polo 70% Dark Chocolate Cocoa Nibs

Refining chocolate produces small pieces of pure raw cocoa called nibs. They are included in this bar for an intense cocoa experience along with crunchy texture. Stevia sweetened, this natural chocolate is packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Cocoa nibs are my favourite. I actually just purchased a bag to use in baking, smoothies and on my coconut ice cream. When you are watching your sugar intake, chocolate is one of the items you miss the most. I was really happy to see this in the box.

Tru Chocolate Dark Chocolate Wafers

Made from only the finest organic non-GMO fair trade cocoa, blended with healthy ingredients, Tru chocolate is packed with Acai powder, citrus & green tea extract. Enjoy the decadent mouth feel and quality in conveniently wrapped single bites.

Little chocolate bites like this are perfect to have on hand, and in your purse. This is the one time I love receiving sample sizes.

Xyloburst Lollipops

XyloBurst lollipops are the perfect swap for sugary treats. They come in apple, orange, raspberry & strawberry flavours, and they’re great for tooth health.

Xyloburst Fruit Sours

Combating sugar and starch which promote tooth decay, xylitol is a sweet and healthy alternative. XyloBurst’s fruit sours are a breath-freshening burst of all-natural sweet and sour flavor.

ThinkThin High Protein Bar

Cookies and Cream is a delicious blend of creamy milk flavor and chocolatey cookie bites. Great for post-workout energy or even a meal replacement.

This is another item I really want to keep for myself, but won’t. I don’t love that these bars are made with Whey Protein, but I love that they have zero grams of sugar.

Chocolate Chocolate Crispy Caramel

At just 100 calories, ChocoRite Chocolate Crispy Caramel are a great tasting milk chocolate candy suitable for low carb diets. These little nuggets have an explosive caramel flavor that is sure to satisfy your sweet cravings.

Just looking at the package makes me want to eat this. You can’t go wrong with chocolate, caramel and crispy bits.

Sleek Treat Review January 2017 – Final Thoughts

I am SO glad I discovered this subscription box. Sleek Treat has a really good thing going here. I absolutely LOVE that they cater to low-sugar and diabetic lifestyles. This would have been a great box to know about when I managed the retirement home. Quite a few of our residents were diabetic, and we always needed to have no-sugar treat options for them when we celebrated birthdays and holidays. I also think this box is reasonably priced. I know first-hand that sugar-free treats are expensive, and hard to find. I am very happy with my first Sleek Treat box!

XOXO

    I was so excited about getting my very first box of sugar free goodies! I paid extra for the cold shipment, but it still took 3 days to arrive so all of the chocolate was fully melted into a massive mess in the foil bag. I was so beyond disappointed! I wish there was another alternative out there for such a subscription box, but I couldn’t find one. Therefore, I’ll just have to continue to seek my own goodies and order them individually. If this product shipment is improved upon (like maybe 1 day delivery with cold packs), I would sure love to hear about it!

      Oh no! That’s not good. Did you contact customer service?

      1. Lisa Goff says:

        Yes. Melanie responded this morning requesting a photo of the melted items. I didn’t save them (it was a huge mess). She also went on to say the cold packs were -21 deg fereinheit when shipped three days prior, so the likely cause was that it sat in my mailbox too long. However, the mailman handed me the box, and it was packaged in a standard cardboard box with no insulation beyond the foil bag the chocolate was in. The tracking shows it took three days to arrive to my house. The freezer packs were in the bottom of the box with the hard candy on them, and the foil pouch was in the top. It’s not hard to imagine freezer packs will not stay cold for three days in a cardboard box. They wouldn’t stay cold three days in a cooler. The “customer service” response simply solidified my decision to cancel. Common sense is deeply lacking. Unfortunately, this business isn’t likely to survive unless packaging improves and shipping time goes down to one day (when someone opts cold shipping).

        1. Sarah says:

          Good to know, thank you for all the info. I always like to hear other people’s experiences with subscription boxes, and so do other readers. This makes me think we should implement a review/rating system on our box directory.

        2. Sleek Treat says:

          Hi Lisa,

          We are sorry about your unpleasant experience. We try to be as clear as possible and our cold shipping methods are clearly detailed at check-out. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to ship overnight due to the high costs of shipping. When shipping products with chocolate (especially chocolate with inclusions) at extremely high temperatures, we cannot control how long they sit in the USPS truck or en route – we are actively working on improving every aspect of our Subscription. We have already sent you a replacement box with different products which are not perishable. If you are looking for a refund, please email customer service. We try our best to procure high quality small-batch products which are hard to find and deliver them to those who could benefit from them as cost-efficiently as possible.

        3. Sarah says:

          Thank you so much for responding and giving Lisa an update. It is much appreciated:)

    The review/rating idea is a good one. I appreciate others feedback as well.
