I'm actually EARLY this month! YAHOO! I think it's because this month's box was packed FULL with yummies!

February’s theme is ‘Follow Your Heart.’ It’s just three words, but following your heart is no small thing to do! Whether it’s hunting for a new career, starting a relationship, or simply resolving to do something you’ve never done before, following your heart takes courage and strength – and, let’s face it, some seriously good snacks to keep you motivated. Consider this month’s box as fuel for following your heart wherever it may take you!

*It would be safe to assume these snacks are gluten-free only unless otherwise noted.


Since I was eager to dive right into the box, I completely forgot to take a picture! So, I did an unboxing video!

Going in order of the unboxing...
CINN-CREDIBLE CINNAMON PACKETS
All this is, is just ground cinnamon. Mama Melissa and I put it in our coffee. If you’ve had cinnamon before, you’ll know what this tastes like.
The one thing I did like about this was that it did not stay in my cup, like other cinnamon powders. When I finished my coffee, there was no ‘grit’ left.

TASTE: 10/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

YUMMYEARTH LOLLIPOPS
I got 5 different flavors;
STRAWBERRY SMASH
WET-FACE WATERMELON
POMEGRANATE PUCKER
TOOBERRY BLUEBERRY
GOOGLY GRAPE

I’m not really one for lollipops anymore, so I have not tried these… I’m thinking about dropping them in my purse, so I can suck on them when I’m doing errands and my mouth gets dry. Once I try these, I’ll come back and edit this
TASTE: UNKNOWN AT THIS TIME
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

HOMEFREE LEMON BURST MINI COOKIES
Almost like a lemony shortbread. Very heavy on the lemon flavor, but not to the overpowering stage. Easy on the teeth. I really liked these.

TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

FREEYUMM HONEY APPLE OAT BAR
Going by the amount of things it was free from, I was honestly expecting something that tasted like cardboard. But I was surprised. I really couldn’t taste the apple flavor in this… it was more of a subdued apple flavor. Reminded me a LOT of Apple & Cinnamon instant oatmeal. Very chewy.
TASTE: 8/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Wheat Free, Soy Free, Fish Free, Shellfish Free, Sulphates Free, Sesame Free

BLUE DIAMOND ALMONDS MINI NUT-THINS
I received 2 different flavors of these as well;
CHEDDAR CHEESE
These kind of reminded me of a more saltier Cheddar Cheese Goldfish cracker. I REALLY couldn’t taste the almond in these. I took one of these for tasting purposes, then gave the rest to Mama Melissa, because they worked well with her pre-diabetic diet.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

HINT OF SEA SALT
Very… plain. I didn’t detect much of a salty flavor on these. There’s actually a cereal out on the market that has the same flavor, but I seriously cannot remember the name of it. I prefer the Cheddar Cheese flavor more.
TASTE: 6/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

HAGENSBORG CHOCOLATES TRUFFLE PIGS
These are so cute. They actually are shaped like pigs! I received 2 different flavors of these as well;
DARK PEPPERMINT
This was really good… and I hate Dark Chocolate! Reminded me of a York Peppermint Patty or a Keebler Grasshopper cookie.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

MILK CARAMEL
Had an odd taste to the chocolate… almost like ‘fake’ or ‘cheap’ chocolate. The caramel tasted like regular caramel.
TASTE: 8/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

WORLD PEAS ROASTED CHICKPEAS
Again, I received 2 different flavors of these as well;
TEXAS BARBEQUE
For something that is supposed to taste like Texas Barbeque, this is… well… bland. I didn’t really taste much barbecue flavor of these. I think Pringles BBQ chips have more of a barbecue taste to them. While these would have played nicely with Mama Melissa’s diet, she hates barbecue flavored foods, so these were mine. I don’t think I’d buy these on my own.
TASTE: 5/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

SANTA BARBARA RANCH
Not as heavy on the Ranch flavor as I would have thought. Tasted like a plain chickpea was a very light coating of dry Ranch dressing mix. I took a couple of these for tasting purposes, then gave the rest to Mama Melissa, because they also worked well with her pre-diabetic diet.
TASTE: 6/10

IWON NUTRITION PROTEIN CHIPS
FROM THE BAG: the feeling you get after an awesome workout. the happiness you experience when you accomplish something great. the passion you have for the things you love. the unmistakable felling of winning. in sport. in fitness. in life.
we totally understand. it’s these passions that we put into making all natural, healthy food products for active people.
i won! nutrition all started when our founder realized that most on-the-go meals were unhealthy, unnatural and didn’t taste that good, so he went on a mission to create exactly what he wanted using the best non-gmo and organic ingredients.
we hope you enjoy these chips as much as we do.
bringing all natural to the game
mark samuel, founder and ceo

After filming the video, I realized these were sriracha flavor. I’m not sure WHAT went wrong here, but these actually made me nauseous. It wasn’t the hotness, since I actually love sriracha flavored foods. I finished the one bag, because I didn’t want to waste them, but I did NOT like them.
They are VERY hard on teeth… almost like stale Doritos. I wouldn’t buy these on my own.
TASTE: 2/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Organic

ANNIE CHUN’S SEAWEED CRISPS in ORIGINAL
FROM THE BAG: Fall in love at first bite with Annie Chun’s irresistibly crunchy Seaweed Crisps.
We’ve taken our best-selling, Roasted Seaweed Snacks and layered them over hearty and crispy brown rice chips for a savory snack like no other.
Every bite-size crisp is over-baked, never fried, and contains 80 calories per serving.
Not to mention, they’re vegan, free of gluten, 0g trans fat per serving and a cholesterol free food.
What are you waiting for?
They’re delicious right out of the bag and perfect for on-the-go snacking, so go ahead and stock up your pantry, office or car to enjoy anytime.

Nope. Not happening in the SLIGHTEST.
Now, I will admit, they had a decent smell when I opened the bag… reminded me of sizzling bacon. So, I actually had high hopes for this snack.
Eating it was a whole different story. All I tasted was seaweed and musk. In my opinion, Annie should have just stopped at the brown rice chips. The seaweed ruined the entire thing.
TASTE: 1/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Vegan, Cholesterol Free, Non-GMO

PRETZEL PERFECTION RASPBERRY TRUFFLE COATED PRETZELS
FROM THE BAG: At Pretzel Perfection, we don’t think you should sacrifice flavor or quality when you choose a gluten-free product. That’s why all of out products are made with only the freshest ingredients and are always free of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. Our unique sweet and savory snacks offer delicious flavor combinations and always come with a safe, gluten-free promise.

Usually, I don’t really care for raspberry flavored foods, unless it’s raspberry sherbert or blue raspberry, which is a different flavor altogether.
But these were actually really good. The coating really didn’t taste like white chocolate at all; rather, more like a vanilla yogurt. The smell is quite strong, but it’s a pleasant smell. This was one of my favorites of the box.
TASTE: 9.5/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

The biggest problem I see disabled folks having with these products are opening them. A LOT of the packages, I had to take scissors to, so if scissors aren't your strong point, you may have a problem opening these packages.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Still loving the variety in this month's box. I like how I got lots of snacks, all that are good for me.
