Fit Snack is a monthly subscription box delivering healthy nutritious snacks directly to your door. Every month, expect 7-10 full-size items plus samples of delicious and healthy snack foods. Fit Snack curates its boxes according to the following criteria:
- Each product always containing two or more of the following: GMO-free, high in protein, low in sugar, gluten free, organic, raw, vegan and all natural.
- Plus, we add in bonus items such as energy boosters, nutritional supplements, or refreshing beverages.
- Finally, we find a little space for exclusive workouts, workout gear or other active lifestyle inspiration.
In previous months, I’ve been disappointed with Fit Snack because the 7-10 items were either not full-size or not snack foods, but instead things like supplements or gum or beverages or the like. Recently, Fit Snack has been a bit better…but this month is another disappointment. Only one or two items would actually qualify as a snack.
Here’s a look at everything in this month’s box.
DEAL: Save $3 on your first box! Deal applies automatically, just visit and subscribe.
Each month includes an information card – on one side of the card, Fit Snack provides a workout for the month.
On the other side of the information card, there are details about each of the items (and lots of times, a coupon code for buying more of what you like). There are often “bonus items” not listed on the card – there were two in this month’s box. Unfortunately, even though it was listed, there were no Beanitos in my box – which is too bad, because I actually like those and they are a snack.
Wicked Lekker Tea: I’m not much of a rooibos tea drinker – I tasted this, but it wasn’t really for me. Additionally, a drink isn’t really a snack in my mind – and the selection criteria for Fit Snack indicates that beverages will be included as a bonus item. Unfortunately, it was one of the few full-size items in the box – so it seems it was included as an actual, not bonus, item.
Herbal Strategy: I’m not exactly sure what this is – the website from the information card (and on the product itself) doesn’t seem to offer or describe this product. The packet says to add to a daily smoothie – but that’s about all I know. A powder to add to a smoothie is definitely not a snack, plus I don’t like that the website associated with the product doesn’t seem to have anything to do with these little packets.
Chops Beef Jerky: Finally, a real snack! I’ve had Chops Beef Jerky before and it is delicious. Chops makes an incredibly moist and well-seasoned jerky.
Zippy Chocolate Energy Truffles: I’ve also had these truffles before – this variety is salted caramel, which was very yummy. In addition to delicious chocolate and caramel, these truffles have caffeine and guarana for a little extra boost. While I don’t generally consider candy bites to be a snack, this isn’t as problematic to me as the herb packets above or the sweetener below.
Zen Sweet Monkfruit Sweetener: Sugar substitute is not a snack. Sugar substitute is not even a product I’m very interested in.
Ultra Nourish Protein Powder: I do regularly drink protein smoothies. This is a new brand for Fit Snack to include – there is usually at least one smoothie or protein powder packet in each month’s box. The flavor of this powder is fine.
VItal Fit Tart Cherry Powder: I drink tart cherry juice as part of my recovery from training. I appreciate its value as a supplement, but I don’t consider this sample of cherry powder to be a snack. It can be mixed in with water, other beverages, or even foot – it has a very mild flavor.
Beanitos: The box, according to the information card, was supposed to include this snack…but this item was missing from my box.
Bonus items – Top Bit Food Topping and Pomegranate Berry Drink Mix: Neither of these are snack items, but it bothers me less since they are specifically bonus items (not on the information card. Both items have been included before in a previous Fit Snack box.
The October box is a giant step backwards for Fit Snack. I’m incredibly disappointed in how far they have diverted from their promise of including 7-10 full-size snacks with bonus supplements. Basically this was a box full of supplements with 1-2 snacks. I hope that Fit Snack gets back to their stated mission, as they had in the last few months.
