Vegancuts Snack Box Review July 2019
Vegancuts makes it simple to discover the best vegan products. Their experts search every corner of the cruelty-free world to uncover new vegan brands and meticulously review and select products that they can stand behind. They kindly sent us this box for review.
Eeek! I am so excited about today’s review. It has been a long time since I received my last Vegancuts Snack Box….too long. I almost forgot how much I love this box, and am so glad to be reviewing it once again. And…it’s perfect timing as they just did a re-brand and revamped their website, boxes, etc…
When you sign up for a Vegancuts subscription you have 3 options to choose from:
Beauty Box ($22.95): The Beauty Box is the easiest way to discover cruelty-free brands without committing to full-size products or prices. Each month they send 4-7 new products to try, ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skincare. Typically the contents of the monthly Beauty Box have a retail value of $50+.
Snack Box ($24.95): The Snack Box is great for people who like to try new snacks. Each month they send out a box that’s packed to the brim with 10 or more vegan snacks, ranging from chips to cookies and sodas to teas.
Makeup Box ($39.95): The Quarterly Vegan Makeup Box is an easy and affordable way to try full-size, cruelty-free & vegan makeup. Each quarter they’ll send you four or more new makeup products, ranging from lipstick to mascara to luxe nail lacquer.
Here’s a closer look at the July Vegancuts Snack Box….
The Vegetarian Express Parma Zaan Sprinkles
This excellent parmesan alternative is completely dairy-free and is an excellent complement to your dishes that taste better with a cheesy flavor. Use on spaghetti, salads, casseroles, and even popcorn! 6 oz. (170g) container is $8.99.
Ingredients: Blanched almond meal, sea salt, nutritional yeast, dehydrated onion, citric acid.
I’m a huge fan of nutritional yeast. It’s a great way for us vegans to get a little extra B12 in our diet. And it’s a great substitute for cheese flavouring.
Fix Hot Sauce
This hot sauce is a perfected blend of organic chili peppers, garlic, sea salt, rice vinegar, and pure cane sugar–nothing more, nothing less, ‘cause that’s how we like it.
I’m one of those people who will put hot sauce on everything. I always have it in the fridge and am very happy to try a new brand.
Fruit Bliss Organic Fruit
Fruit Bliss Organic Turkish Apricots are Non-GMO Project Verified, USDA Organic, Gluten Free, Vegan and Kosher OU certified. Case contains (6) 5 oz. resealable pouches. Note: Our apricots are a natural dark brown color due to the fruit oxidizing naturally from drying in the sun. Most dried apricots are a bright orange color because they have added sulfur dioxide, a chemical color preserver and an allergen for some people.
For some strange reason I’m not a huge fan of dried fruit. I really wish I was as it’s such a convenient snack. These apricots would be great for my purse or gym bag.
Just Date Syrup
Just Date Syrup is made from one perfect ingredient: organic California medjool dates. We’ve gently extracted their natural sugar and vital nutrients to bring you a rich, delicious, and healthier sweet.
Lately I’ve been loving rice cakes with tahini, banana and honey. So I’m sitting here looking at this date syrup thinking what a great substitute it will be for honey.
Kay’s Naturals Protein Snacks
Move over hummus, because there’s a new snack on the horizon that’s bound to knock your socks off. Explore the complex taste sensation that is the chickpea snack, and relish the flavor of these barbecue puffs. Also known as Pass the Peas, these chickpea-based foods will have you craving more as you dive into each bag. Because chickpea puffs are naturally high-protein foods, you’ll feel fuller over the course of your morning or afternoon.
Ok, I can’t even tell you how excited I am for these little protein puffs. This is the kind of snack I love to have on hand, and BBQ is one of my favorite flavours. They are vegan, gluten-free, and have 6 grams of protein and only 3 grams of sugar per serving.
LesserEvil Himalayan Salt & Apple Cider Vinegar Puffs
These grain-free, nutrient-dense puffs are packed with all organic cassava, coconut and sweet potato flours then dusted with organic coconut oil and Himalayan salt to create the perfect snack for everyone.
Salt & Apple Cider Vinegar sounds really good right about now. I’m very familiar with the LesserEvil brand and really enjoy all their products. I haven’t tried their Paleo Puffs as of yet but I have a feeling I am going to love them.
Love, Corn BBQ Corn Snacks
LOVE CORN is on a mission to make Premium Crunchy Corn your favorite snack and put a smile on your face one kernel at a time! LOVE CORN’s delicious, crunchy roasted corn kernels are packed with flavor, have the perfect crunch and fun, iconic packaging is loved by adults and kids.
Another BBQ snack, they are speaking my language. Crunchy corn snacks are a great alternative to chips so I’m happy to add these to my snack bin.
Bob’s Red Mill Organic Oatmeal Cup
An oatmeal cup that can be made with bowling water or in the microwave, ready in 3 minutes. Includes flax and chia seeds.
This will be great to have on hand for a quick breakfast. Thanks to the convenient cup I could also take it with me as I’m heading out the door.
Cusa Tea Sampler with Mango, Oolong & English Breakfast
Currently available in seven flavors, Cusa Tea offers a taste and style of premium instant tea to suit any tea drinker. Made only from pure tea and real fruit or spices, each flavor achieves its smooth and balanced taste without the use of additives, fillers, preservatives or sugar.
Savory Wild Sweet Balsamic & Golden Fig Portabella Jerky
Dive into this sweet & tangy fan-favorite of rich balsamic vinegar that’s beautifully blended with the taste of luscious and ripe golden figs for a perfectly balanced flavor experience. It’s ‘bella brilliance in a bag! All of our Savory Wild jerky products are gluten-free, vegan, and are a good source of the antioxidant Selenium. They are non-GMO and contain no Preservatives, Hydrogenated Oils, Saturated Fats or MSG.
I was so excited about these that I opened them while I was writing this review. I’ve tried coconut jerky and really love it so I was intrigued by the idea of mushroom jerky. I’m happy to report that it is really good. Great flavour, very chewy and satisfying. I would definitely buy this again.
PUR Gum Tangerine Tango Mints – Bonus
PUR Mints Tangerine Tango is a juicy burst of tangy freshness! Revitalize your senses with a succulent combination of tasty tangerine and a mellow mint undertone that will surely have you coming back for more.
PopChips Yes Peas Sea Salt Flavour – Bonus
Bet you never imagined popped peas could taste this good. neither did we! the secret is in the simplicity. That’s all it takes to create this wholesome and delicious snack. plus, with 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per serving, you’ll have the whole family saying “yes peas!
I’ve had PopChips many times. I try not to keep them in the house as I am known to eat an entire bag in one sitting. This individual sized package is perfect for controlling my craving.
Vegancuts Snack Box Review July 2019 – Final Thoughts
Now I remember why I love the Vegancuts Snack Box so darn much. The July box introduced me to some really amazing snacks I never would have discovered on my own. The mushroom jerky and the Kay’s pea puffs are both so good that I have already been researching where to purchase them and how quickly I can have them delivered. Vegan snacks can be hard to find, it’s not as bad as when I first became vegan, but it’s still a bit of a challenge. So of course I love the idea of a snack box doing all the research for me. I’m extremely happy with the July Vegancuts Snack Box and have a feeling it will become a new favourite. It’s definitely in my top 10 list.
