My First Ever Subscription Box: Vegan Cuts Snack Box

Vegan Cuts Snack Box, vegan food, vegan snacks, review

And so I succumbed, to a subscription box that is. But it’s not a beauty box mind you. Of all things, I was drawn to snacks! Kimberly from The Plastic Diaries was the great enabler because right after reading her post, I salivated like a hungry wolf wanting to taste those vegan foodies.

So what convinced me to tackle the world of snack subscription box? First, nothing really interests me at the grocery aisle anymore. It’s the same salty, cholesterol-packed, carbo-loading, sugar-laden and overhyped finger-lickin’ good snacks. Second, the only health food store near me has limited assortments. Third, I want a quick snack to tie me up ’til lunch time.  Fourth, 7-10 snacks at $19.95 a month with free shipping sounds like a great deal (I can only buy three items for the same price at my local health food store).

Vegan Cuts, as the name implies, caters to people with vegan lifestyle. Similar to most subscription boxes, you can auto-pay every month or cancel anytime. From what I read, you receive the box 2nd or 3rd week of the month. Shipping was fast because it only took less than a week from the time I placed my initial order.

Nii Bar Peanut Bar (organic, gluten-free, vegan, soy-free): I didn’t like the taste so I gave it to Hub who’s more into protein bars. He didn’t like it either.

St. Claire’s Organics Peppermints (certified organic, allergen-free, vegan, kosher): straight-up minty; a quick remedy to garlic or pizza breath, haha!

Somersault Snacks: they look like dog treats but good enough for light snacking.

Peeled Snacks Apple clusters: gone in minutes, it’s my #1 favorite; very fruity and not so sweet, if that makes sense.

Lemon Snakaroons: devoured in minutes (hey there are only 3 pcs!); I like the mix of coconut and lemon taste.

Pasta Chips: made with sea salt but it’s not too salty which is a good thing.

Nutiva Hemp Protein: still unopened because I haven’t made a real smoothie in a while.

Uber Green Antioxidant Powder: tastes like tea when mixed with water

Crushed Fruit Blueberry Plum: nice but quite sour for my taste.

Date Lady syrup: my least favorite because I’m not into syrups anyway.

Overall it was a good try. I can’t form a solid opinion yet because it’s my first box so let’s see what July has to offer.

Are you curious? Vegan Cuts ships to Canada for additional $8, around the world for $15.

    Ohhhh I enabled you! YAY! haha. Well I'm sad it wasn't a raving review for your first box. I hope your second box will win you over. I think it's definitely more useful with more than one person in the household because my mother has opposite taste to me so anything I don't think I'll like I pass to her. Having said that, sometimes I've eaten something from the box because I wanted a snack and nothing else was on hand only to completely fall in love with the item I thought I'd hate.

      I'm actually excited for July. For the most part, taste preference is relative. I just don't want another syrup por favor, haha!

    ahhhhhhhhh geeeeeeee, now I'm hungry!!!! It all looks yummy…well, ok except the hemp protein powder scares me…seems like it would taste like grass. like grass in the yard not that other kind, lol.

    I'm curious about some of those snacks! #omnomnom

  4. July 8, 2014 / 1:27 pm

    I am totally curious! Need to try at least one box. I love the variety!

    • July 10, 2014 / 4:28 am

      yeah, nothing to lose IMO because it's $19.95 w/ free shipping

    Sounds like a mixed bag of likes and dislikes, but I look forward to seeing what you say in the future on this, it sounds like such a great concept. I really want to look into this, I'm going to wait and see what you say in the future!

    I am so with you about snacks in the grocery store, they all look so unappetizing! But quite a few of these snacks sound really good!

      It's nice to know you feel the same way. I went to Walmart today and didn't even bother checking out the snacks aisle

  7. July 8, 2014 / 6:13 pm

    I subscribe to Graze & am so happy with the snacks that I've been receiving.

  8. July 8, 2014 / 7:21 pm

    Well this sounds interesting!! I get so tired of going up and down the aisles looking at junk at the store-so this might be a good option to try something new! Some of those snacks sound really good!

    • July 10, 2014 / 4:33 am

      Try one box; if you don't like it, you can cancel. I was at Walmart today and didn't even look at the snacks anymore

  9. July 8, 2014 / 7:34 pm

    I am super curious about this, and definitely want some healthier food options.

    • July 10, 2014 / 4:34 am

      I had the same feeling like yours that's why I decided to try

  10. July 8, 2014 / 8:00 pm

    Crushed Fruit Blueberry Plum sounds so interesting! I'm not sure I'd like the rest.

  11. July 8, 2014 / 8:34 pm

    This sounds like a delicious subscription box 😀

  12. July 9, 2014 / 1:03 am

    I would love to try this!

  13. July 9, 2014 / 1:22 am

    This is so neat, I've never heard of this box before! I love how these are all smaller brands, none of which I've heard of to be honest. Next time I have the money to spend on a subscription box, I will definitely revisit this one for consideration! Good find!! 🙂

      Thanks Lydia. I've heard about it from another blogger as well, Kimberly from The Plastic Diaries. I've seen some doing unboxing on Youtube but never paid much attention.

  14. July 9, 2014 / 2:24 am

    Cool box! I'd never think to sign up for a snack box but it's such a good idea.

  15. July 9, 2014 / 2:57 am

    Oh the things that I would do to that crushed blueberry plum! I love tart fruit!

  16. July 9, 2014 / 3:31 am

    This looks like a great subscription box! I know of a vegan friend who would enjoy this one.

  17. July 9, 2014 / 3:37 am

    Those lemon snakaroons look delicious 🙂

  18. July 9, 2014 / 4:26 am

    Great idea. I've never subscribed for a snack box before. I'm really into macaroons, yes, I love them, especially lemon flavors. It'll be a great snack but only got 3pcs? The apple snacks looks good though. Maybe I'll try them (I'm not vegan XD).

  19. July 9, 2014 / 7:27 am

    I have seen reviews and open boxes of this subscription. I have been wondering if this is something I would enjoy – everything looks yum.

  20. July 9, 2014 / 11:04 am

    Hmmm, I've never subscribed to a box but hey, I'm going to try it. Definitely
