^^what I received^^

Going in order of the unboxing...

WISE POPCORN in 30% REDUCED FAT SEA SALT
Just reminded me of plain salted popcorn. Popcorn is a fave snack of mine, so it was nice to see this in the box.
TASTE: 10/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

HIPPEAS in VEGAN WHITE CHEDDAR
FROM THE BAG: We didn’t follow the rest of the snack pack. We go our own way.
We think ‘taste good’ and ‘do good’ can be in the same sentence.
Join us to change things for the better, one chickpea at a time.
Peas, Love and giving back.

Going into this snack, I thought it’d be just like a puffed Cheeto or a puffed cheese curl.
While the shape is the same, Hippeas are WAY more crunchier.
These had a weird taste to them. I guess I’m not accustomed to vegan cheese. But they really weren’t too awful.
TASTE: 8/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Kosher, Vegan, Non-GMO

VEGAN ROB’S PROBIOTIC CAULIFLOWER PUFFS
FROM THE BAG: Plant based=Vegan
You don’t have to be Vegan to enjoy Vegan Rob’s plant based snacks! Created from ingredients of this green Earth, they are addicting with a taste that’s out of this world!!
Meditate and focus on the crunch. Feel your stress melt away as you reap the benefits of the cruciferous cauliflower. Loaded with probiotics, many of which are lacking in the human body, they support digestive & immune health and taste incredible! Crunch consciously and crunch Vegan Rob’s Probiotic Cauliflower Puffs!
Join our Vegan revolution! Love yourself, our planet, and all living things. Snack as clean and kind as possible.
‘Live & Enjoy!’ – My mother’s mantra
Rob

So, Vegan Rob is the same as Crunchy Rob from the December box. These were still in the ‘puffed cheese curl’ form factor, but considerably SOFTER than the Hippeas puffs. You can really taste the cauliflower in these.
I thought they were okay, but not something I’d go out of my way to find/buy.
TASTE: 7/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Kosher, Vegan, Non-GMO

TREEHUGGER ALL NATURAL BUBBLE GUM
I’m not one for gum, so I think these will go untried. If I do try these, I’ll edit this.
TASTE: UNKNOWN
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

BUFF BAKE PROTEIN COOKIE in SNICKERDOODLE
I usually LOVE Snickerdoodle cookies, but this was very bland and dry. I ate 2 or 3 bites of this and, because it was NOT diabetic and my FH didn't like it either, I ended up tossing it away.
TASTE: 2/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

FREEYUMM GINGER COOKIE
Opening this, I was expecting a gingersnap-like taste and texture. Instead, I got a very soft cookie that looked undercooked and tasted bland. I really did not like this, which was a surprise, considering I did like the Honey Apple Oat bar from February’s box.
TASTE: 4/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Wheat Free, Soy Free, Fish Free, Shellfish Free, Sulphates Free, Sesame Free

18 RABBITS GRANOLA BAR in DATES, PECANS & COCONUT
FROM THE PACKAGE: 18 Rabbits began with a love story. The smell of mom’s homemade granola wafting out of the kitchen window, while two rabbits fell in love in the backyard. Bringing food back to its roots, we use pure and simple ingredients from farmers we know and sources we trust.

I’m usually not one for dates (after a bad experience with pitted dates and my teeth) but this was delicious. I really couldn’t taste the dates; the other ingredients overpowered the dates.
I really liked this. Reminded me of a chewy Quaker granola bar, just thinner. It wasn’t too hard on the teeth either.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

TORIE & HOWARD’S CHEWIE FRUITIES
I reviewed another product by Torie and Howard, their Pomegranate & Nectarine hard candies. Going into this, I was COMPLETELY expecting a candy with the texture of Starburst pieces, but these candies have a translucent appearance and the texture/chewiness of a Hi-Chew candy.
There were three different flavors in the bag…
MEYER LEMON & RASPBERRY - First one I grabbed from the bag. Reminded me heavily of either Raspberry or Rainbow sherbet, which I love.
POMEGRANATE & NECTARINE - I still couldn’t taste the Pomegranate in these. I tasted more of the nectarine than anything.
BLOOD ORANGE & HONEY - Tasted absolutely ZERO honey in this. The orange flavor overpowered it. But this was my favorite by far.
Unlike the hard candies, I would DEFINITELY buy these if I saw them.
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

FOODS ALIVE LEMON-CHIA CRUNCH CRACKERS
Okay, so these aren’t really ‘crackers, per se. I’d call this more like ‘sesame brittle.’ I usually like things with lemon, but this was way too heavy on the lemon flavor. It was also VERY hard on my teeth. I would NOT buy this on my own.
TASTE: 6/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Raw Diet, Non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher, Organic

SALAD POWER JUICE DRINK in VEGGIES & MANGO
A drinkable salad. It has kale, celery, carrot, bell pepper, cucumber, tomato & spinach in it. I actually reviewed the Plain flavor of this last February. Considering it had mango juice with it this time, I really was sort of expecting something like V8 Splash or the old Boku juices from the 1990s.
But again, it was NASTY. I had 3 or 4 sips before I said ‘Nope, Not happening.’ and tossed it.
TASTE: 1/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Vegetarian

WILD GARDEN MEDITERRANEAN FOODS SNACK BOX TO GO in TRADITIONAL HUMMUS AND VEGGIE CHIPS
Okay, so I stupidly tossed the box after eating this, and I’m NOT going to dig in the garbage for it.
That being said, I really didn’t like this… or should I say, I’m not one for hummus. I wasn’t back in June 2016, and I’m still not.
I DID like the veggie chips they sent, and if I saw them in the store, I’d be inclined to buy them. But the hummus ruined it for me.
TASTE: 7/10 (10/10 for the chips, 4/10 for the hummus)
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.
