Hello everyone! Today I am reviewing the monthly food subscription service, Vegan Cuts. The company was so generous and allowed me to try the March box free of charge so I could review it for you all! =)
What is a Vegan Cuts Snack Box?
Vegan Cuts is a monthly food subscription service that sends a box of vegan snacks (that are often also gluten free, organic and or GMO free) to your mailbox for you to try each month! I love this concept because it allows one to sample a variety of foods without committing to buying a large quantity! The company also offer a beauty box that is offers vegan and cruelty free prodcuts.
What was in the March 2015 Snack Box?* Supereats Chili Lime Kale and Chia Chips *
I LOVED these chips! They were the perfect balance of tangy and spicy. Side note- if you are interested in purchasing a bag, I just saw them at Whole Foods! (They also come in a variety of flavors).* Wild Friends Cranberry Sesame Peanut Butter *
This was not the sweet berry flavored peanut butter I was expecting, which I appreciated! The cranberries added a slight sweetness, but more than anything it reminded me of tahini because of the sesame. I liked it, but would not purchase it only because I am not particularly fond of tahini.* Atlantic Natural Foods Vegan Beef and Gravy *
I did not enjoy or finish this product as it unfortunately contained MSG, which I do not eat. Additionally, it tasted overly processed and resembled dog food both in appearance, smell and texture.* Chic-a-peas Roasted Chickpeas *
These were super yummy if you like chickpeas, which I do! The ingredient list is short and simple and overall is a healthier alternative to other savory packaged snack options.* Mighty Leaf Mint Chocolate Truffle Black Tea, Vanilla Bean Black Tea and Marrakesh Mint Green Teas *
I liked all three of these teas, especially the chocolate truffle. I added steamed almond milk and a little stevia to each which made them all great “dessert teas”.* Fruigees Kale and Grape Fruit Squeeze *
I LOVE grape juice, and that is exactly what this tasted like! It reminded me of a Mama Chia snack without the chia seeds. I definitely recommend these for children as the squeeze container makes spilling nearly impossible!* Funny Face Cranberries *
I have to say this might have been the weirdest cranberry I have ever eaten! =) The dried cranberries were flavored like cherry, which was both good and bad. I should preface this with the fact that I hate dried fruit most of the time, but I thought these tasted really good! That being said, I try to avoid processed foods and the cherry flavoring was artificial. These also contained added sugar. I would not consider these an unhealthy snack, however I would choose to eat a piece of fruit instead.* TCHO Dark Chocolate Square *
I LOVE CHOCOLATE and was very impressed by the smoothness of this chocolate and absence of bitterness that can sometimes be found with high cacao content.* Munkijo Coconut Water *
I liked this coconut water and there isn’t much else I can add to that! =)* Ocean’s Halo Korean Barbecue Seaweed Chips *
These tasted similar to sushi (undoubtedly because of the seaweed) and the barbecue flavor was palatable. The only issue I had with these again was the presence of MSG, which I choose not to eat and a long ingredient list with some questionable ingredients such as, “organic cane syrup solids” and “organic yeast extract”.
How Much Does it Cost?
Each month, the subscriber is billed $19.95 for the box (shipping is free). Vegan Cuts also offers a Vegan Beauty Box for the same monthly fee.
I had so much fun sampling everything in the box and recommend trying out this service if you are interested in trying a variety of vegan snack options.
A BIG ‘Thank You’ to Vegan Cuts for gifting me the March box!
