Looking for a convenient way to try out new low carb and keto snacks? Keto Krate is putting together the best new keto products in their subscription box.
If you follow me on Instagram (and you can follow me HERE), you will have recently seen that I received a Keto Krate for review. Snack boxes, or monthly subscription boxes filled with various snacks, are all the rage right now. I think Nature Box started it, although I could be wrong. I have received countless offers to test out “healthy” snack box subscriptions and not once have I been tempted. Because they just don’t have enough low carb options for either me or my readers. The vast majority of them simply don’t meet my definition of healthy.
Obviously, with a name like Keto Krate, this snack box subscription is a little different. They aim to provide their subscribers with healthy snacks and products that fit the low carb lifestyle. Now that’s something I can get on board with and something I could recommend to my readers. But I had to try it myself first.
I received January’s Keto Krate and the contents therein were:
Cello Whisps (parmesan cheese crisps)
Big John’s Beef Jerky
Good Dee’s Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
Vermont Smoke & Cure Chipotle Meat Stick
Gorilly Goods Pumpkin Seeds
Emerald Nuts Cocoa Roast Almonds 100 Calorie Pack
Coco Polo Milk Chocolate Bar with Almonds
Zenify Stress Relief Drink
Certainly lots of good tasty stuff there and many of the sorts of things I would reach for myself when looking for a pre-packaged low carb snack. It was nice not to have to go searching for things like this on my own and have them all just arrive on my doorstep. Although both the jerky and the cocoa almonds contain a little sugar, the amount per serving wasn’t significant enough to concern me. They would all make great on-the-go or travel snacks. Except maybe the Zenify drink…pretty sure airport security wouldn’t appreciate you trying to sneak that through!
But I didn’t want to review the box without making the cookies from the mix. And since it was a mix, I thought it would be fun just to hand over the reigns to my girls and have them make the cookies on their own. Or at least mostly on their own. I have kitchen control issues, apparently, and I had to give them a little bit of direction lest we end up with one big glob of cookie.
The cookies were quite good. I won’t say that they were great, as I found them a bit overly sweet for my taste and the texture was not my ideal for a chocolate chip cookie. But I think this will always be the way with pre-packaged mixes versus homemade. They were certainly quick to whip up (so easy, a 9 year old and a 6 year old can do it!) and good enough for an easy sweet treat. The kids loved them, especially with a little peanut butter smeared on top. And the woman who makes the mix is on Instagram and I applaud her efforts to give the world a convenient low carb cookie mix. So go check out Deelowcarbcafe too!
So is the Keto Krate subscription worth it? Well if you are like me and always on the hunt for new low carb product ideas, I would say yes. I am looking forward to my next box and will share my thoughts on that one too. And I am hoping to run a giveaway for a free box or two next time so stay tuned!
