The October 2022 Vegancuts Snack Box theme was No Tricks, Just Treats and I received snacks that were sweet, salty, chewy, and more. Read on to see what I received!

DEAL: Use the coupon code hellosub to get $5 off your first box on any Vegancuts subscription!   It can only be used once per customer, but it can be used on multiple subscriptions at once so long as they are in the same transaction.

The card lists the snacks in the box. Proceeds go to a charity that helps animals, like JP Farm Animal Sanctuary.

Plant First Camp Vegan Cheezy Mac ($6.66) I haven’t tried this yet because honestly, I’m not a mac and cheese fan. If I had to choose a quick meal between canned lentil or minestrone soup or boxed mac and cheese, I would choose soup 100% of the time. I like that the pasta is gluten-free and my daughter really likes mac and cheese so this will probably get made while she’s home from college for the holidays.

Nut Pods Almond+Coconut Creamer ($4.98) This is a sugar-free product that has sugar subs like stevia and erythritol instead. I don’t drink coffee so I have no need for this product, plus I once bought a jar of cookie butter from Trader Joes and ate it straight off the spoon and now I can’t really eat cookie butter ever again. Passing this to my coffee drinking daughter.

Fit Joy Garlic & Basil Pretzels ($4.49) This was a pretty big bag of pretzels, and there are about 4.5 servings in this bag. These are made with cassava and chickpea flour, potato starch, and date nectar. The dark stuff on the pretzels in my picture is the pesto seasoning (some of the pretzels were extra strong in flavor) and it’s good and a little spicy. I like the texture and prefer these over regular wheat-flour-based pretzels.

Barnana Plantain Nuggets ($2) I had no idea what these were going to taste like, and I am not sure I’ve even tried a plantain before (but I know what they look like). Turns out they are a chunky, non-sweet, ranch-flavored version of fried banana chips (not the freeze-dried type, but the kind cooked in coconut oil). Banana chips were never my favorite and even as a child I thought they might break my teeth but these were very good, like a super thick potato chip. They are high in calories, fat, and especially saturated fat thanks to that coconut oil but as an occasional treat, these were pretty darn good.

Mavericks Cookies Birthday Cake ($0.51) I wasn’t expecting to like these cookies but oh my gosh, they are so tasty and decadent and have much less fat than actual birthday cake and yet taste the same. I’m going to need a bigger bag of these ASAP.

Bakery on Main Strawberry Shortcake I was afraid this oatmeal would be too sweet and have that strawberry gum/candy flavor but it was pretty good. It has a texture that is similar to what I would get if I mixed oatmeal with Malt-O-Meal.

Bakery on Main Monster Cookie I like this granola, it’s like a broken-up chocolate chip oatmeal cookie! I filled a bowl with yogurt, whatever berries I had on hand (this week it was blueberries), and topped it with the granola. It also makes for a fun treat when eaten straight out of the bag.

Here’s the strawberry oatmeal!

HerbaLand Gummies Organic Turmeric & Ginger Pineapple Flavor ($4) For some reason I thought these would be individually wrapped but nope, they are gummies for adults. They are called “snacks with benefits” but the benefits that I saw are the fact that there’s turmeric, they’re low sugar, and they have 10 grams of fiber, although it’s the insoluble type. The serving size is the whole bag but the erythritol may cause GI problems and there is an aftertaste thanks to the stevia. I liked the pineapple flavor but the ginger is rather spicy. I appreciate that the bag can be cut into small pieces and placed in my compost pile!

Love, Corn in Sea Salt ($1.91) I am really into simple snacks and this one fits the bill – it’s just corn, sea salt, and sunflower oil. It’s a classic snack from my childhood and I still like them, but they can be tough on teeth so chew carefully.

NibMor Blueberry Organic Dark Chocolate ($3.34) I only saw this product on Amazon, I guess it’s been discontinued in the blueberry flavor. When I saw that it had a “natural blueberry flavor” I was again worried that it would taste fake and this time I was correct. Plus, the candy is kind of thick and hard, so a piece can’t be broken or chewed off, I had to gnaw it like a beaver.

Sunny Fruit Organic Apricots ($1.20) The bottom of the card mentioned a bonus snack that will vary and I was so thrilled to receive these juicy dried apricots. This is nature’s candy right here folks. They may not look pretty but they practically melt in the mouth. The flavor is unexpected too, a cross between a fig and an apricot.

I enjoyed my box full of treats this month! Just like pretty much all subscription boxes out there, there were a couple of items that were not things that I eat but I have found good homes for those two snacks and everything else was generally a hit with me! I especially liked the plantain ranch nuggets, cake-flavored cookies, apricots, and corn nuts. The gluten-free pretzels had enough for several snack times and I really liked their texture.

Vegancuts Snack Box is a monthly vegan food subscription that delivers 10 or more organic and vegan treats each month. Snacks can include a pantry item or drink and most snacks are gluten-free. Each subscription box costs $24.95 monthly, or save a bit with a longer pre-paid term.
