Sleek Treat Review September 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 is a really great box for those of us who pay attention to our sugar consumption. I’ve been doing a lot of research on sugar as of late, and trust me when I say this…….sugar is NOT your friend. If everyone did just a little research on sugar and the negative effects it has on our health Sleek Treat would be the most popular box on the market.
Here’s a look at the treats we received in the September box…..
Smart Baking Company Smartcake Cinnamon

This little gem is sweetened with monk fruit which I am now familiar with thanks to last month’s box. Before that I have never heard of monk fruit. It is a small sub-tropical melon and the juice is twenty times sweeter than other fruit juices.
The Good Chocolate Bar
Signature Dark mixed with crushed organic almonds and Maldon sea salt. 100% ORGANIC INGREDIENTS: Cacao nibs, Erythritol, Salted almonds, Cacao butter, Mesquite Powder, Stevia, Vanilla.
Eeek!! I am so excited about this chocolate bar! Here are just a few reasons why it will probably become my new favourite treat:
- The Good Chocolate has on average 37% fewer calories than other leading chocolates made without sugar.
- The Good Chocolate have just 1 Net carb per bar, and less than 1 net carb per square in Signature Dark, Mint, Ginger and Himalayan Salt flavors.
- The Good Chocolate uses a curated sweet-blend that is 100% organic and sourced from fruits & plants: Mesquite powder, Stevia & Erythritol.
- Cacao is the most antioxidant rich food on the planet, nothing comes close. Cacao nibs have more antioxidants than goji beries & blueberries. Science shows antioxidants can help protect against cancer and other degenerative diseases, as well as provide anti-aging benefits. Recent studies have found Erythritol to be a potent antioxidant as well.
- Our sweet-blend is sourced from fruits and plants, and curated to be delicious and perfectly complement the palate’s need for sweet – while remaining metabolism & digestion friendly.
Sorry for the information overload. As you can probably tell I am just a little bit excited about this bar. I need to figure out where I can purchase more!
Snowflakes Candy Apple
Treat yourself to the tantalizing sweetness of Snowflakes Candy Mints. Made only with 100% USA birchwood xylitol and the finest flavorings and essential oils. That’s it. It’s candy at its simplest.
Enjoy Snowflakes anytime to freshen breath or just satisfy a sweet tooth. For oral health, two to three pieces after a meal will help coat and protect your teeth against harmful cavity-causing bacteria.
These look super fun and I love that they come in a tin. It makes them the perfect treat for your purse.
Everly All Natural Drink Mix Pomegranate Berry
Everly ® helps you drink more water by making water taste better without any bad ingredients, so you can stay hydrated and enjoy what you drink. Our healthy drink mixes are all natural, sugar free, zero calorie, and enhanced with vitamins and fruit extracts.
These are a great way to hydrate yourself when you need something a little more exciting than water. I’m pretty good with my water and rarely need to drink anything else, but there’s the odd time that I crave something with a little more oomph.
D’s Naturals No Cow Bar
The No Cow Bar is a truly delicious, plant-based high protein bar made with cutting-edge ingredients, like organic brown rice and pea proteins, prebiotic fiber and natural sweeteners. No Cow Bars fuel an active lifestyle using only the best natural ingredients with no added sugar or other junk.
This is my kind of bar! It’s natural, vegan, non-GMO, dairy free, soy free, gluten free, and high fiber. It was created by a young man with a dairy sensitivity who was trying to find a dairy free protein bar that was low in sugar. He couldn’t find one so he created his own. I am more than comfortable with all of the ingredients with the exception of the erythritol, but that’s a common ingredient in sugar-free products so I really can’t complain.
Sleek Treat Review September 2017 – Final Thoughts
I feel like I may have said this last month, but this month’s Sleek Treat box is my favourite thus far. I absolutely love the mixture of items we received this month, and I love that they have been including all-natural treats as of late. I really, really hope to see more natural goodies in the future. It’s so hard to find sugar-free, healthy goodies. I try to stay away from sugar as much as possible, but sometimes I just need a little chocolate in my life. I think that’s why I am so excited about The Good Chocolate bar, as well as the No Cow Bar. I really like the direction Sleek Treat is heading. I feel like this box gets better and better every month.
