How about a review!!
Fit Snack contacted me about reviewing a box for them. I got it about a while ago, but in good corporate fashion, I've been swamped. And then my computer broke.
But anyway, the snacks have been a lot fun to make my way through.
Back in July, I took a blood test that identified some food sensitivities. I started avoiding things like wheat, corn, oats, dairy, sugar, and a handful of other things. When I first started this "diet," I was just shocked at how many things had "hidden" ingredients in them. Like who would have thought that tomato sauce would have sugar in it?!?! So I started becoming hyper aware of what I was putting in my body. Even canned soup contained sugar and corn. Everything contains high fructose corn syrup. Even some of the "healthy" cereals I was eating contained sugar. It was just disgusting and eye opening.
One of the hardest things is to find healthy on the go snacks. I eat fruits and veggies when I can, but it's hard to take celery sticks every where. A bag of nuts is easier to tote, admit it.
So when Fit Snack contacted me, I was really excited! I wanted to see what they could offer.
I have become allergic to almonds in the last few years so I gave the almonds to my boss. He and his friends tried them on a road trip and said they were great.

Thankfully, I could eat some of the snacks they provided. The pancake mix was AMAZING!! And the Simply 7 lentil chips were great! I had them with homemade salsa and actually found the same brand at a health food store and grabbed a big bag. The Fit Snack veggie chips were very good too.
Unfortunately, a lot of the snacks still had sugar in them. This, of course, is no fault of Fit Snack, they did not realize I did not eat sugar. But it's an interesting observation. I was thrilled at the quinoa chips since I have started adding quinoa to my weekly menu, and since there were the same brand as the lentil chips, I figured they would also be sugar free, but unfortunately not. They have corn starch, corn four, AND sugar in them. Needless to say, I was bummed. I have found that items with "alternative" flours still contain corn or wheat. I'm not sure why this is the case, but I wish they would stop it.
Lenny and Larry's "The Complete Cookie" was good, but contained wheat and sugar. But I have some friends who cannot have eggs or dairy and I have told them about this product. They were thrilled to know about it! A friend has a young son who is allergic to just about everything but could have this cookie. I should have saved it for him, but it was a good looking cookie. :-)
The "Complete Energy Bites" kinda threw me for a loop as I read the back of the box. They contain 135 mg of caffeine! How cool is that!? However, the very first ingredient is.... sugar.
