Laid Back Snacks Review: February 2023
Laid Back Snacks is a healthy snack subscription service with more than 30 different nibblies to choose from including gluten-free, nut-free and vegan options. There are a variety of subscription options, mine is a surprise mix of 6 snacks delivered once a month. Here’s a look at February’s box.*
*They kindly sent us this box for review.
Laid Back Snacks offers three box sizes: 6, 10 and 20 snacks. Each is available by subscription for delivery every two weeks, every month, or every two months. Subscribers may select their snacks or opt for a surprise mix.
If you want to try a box or gift a box or a subscription, options are available there too.
Laid Back Snacks ships across North America. Shipping for the 10- and 20-snack subscriptions is always free and free in some areas for the 6-snack plans.
Now let’s get to the snacks!
Sunshine Mango · “Mango is our happy food. It reminds us of a childhood spent eating juicy handfuls on long summer days. Sunshine Mango is 100% organic and sweetened by the sun – not an additive in sight. This fruit features an impressive list of health benefits too. Mango helps level out any acid build-up in the body and clears the skin of clogged pores. One cup of sliced mangoes supplies an incredible 25 percent of your needed daily value of vitamin A. Go mango!”
I love dried fruit and sunshine mango is a fave. Sweet, chewy, all-natural — so good.
Hot Cocoa Hugge · ““It’s too cozy in here” – words never uttered by anyone. We’ve channeled maximum coziness in designing Hot Cocoa Hugge – the perfect throwback to happy childhood days. Sweet, smooth cocoa powder wasn’t enough of a taste profile for us. We’ve dialed things up using a sprinkle of salt and cinnamon for good measure. Enjoy all the indulgence this snack has to offer, perfectly paired with all the health benefits of almonds and cashews. So cozy!”
Laid Back Snacks’s newest nibblie is tasty as-is but toss in some mini marshmallows and it’s even better, IMHO. (And even more like hot choco.)
Protein Power-Up · “Building a strong body starts with good protein, whether you’re a veteran athlete or just hitting the beach weights for the summer. Get the fuel you need for growth through almonds loaded with potassium, protein-rich cashews, high fibre chickpeas, and cranberries with high nutrient and antioxidant content. Yoghurt chips give a smooth finish to your session, no blender required!”
After carbo-loading all winter I’m making an effort to eat more protein and this snack helps with 4 grams per portion. I’m even coming around to chickpeas, which I used to avoid.
Mexican Remix · “All fiesta, no siesta! This Mexican-inspired mix has more joy to give than an overfilled piñata. No blindfolds or dangerous stick swinging required to open up this delicious snack! And taco ’bout a combo of all the right things: crispy corn nuts, roasted black beans and spicy jalapeño cashews packed with protein. We guarantee your taste buds will be moving and shaking long after the bag is empty.”
Ginger Staycation · “Ginger Staycation is a laid back, relaxed kind of snack. Take a break from the day and do something that’s all about you. Australian crystallized ginger mingles with our gourmet selection of nuts to offer a delightfully chilled taste profile. And let’s not forget the chocolate. Dark chocolate is both delicious and really nutritious – it’s linked to 40+ health benefits. Who knew that kicking back could be so good for you!”
Mexican Remix and Ginger Staycation are much more my guy — he likes savoury snacks with a kick. (I just get a kick out of the descriptions.) Mexican Remix might be tasty on a taco salad. What do you think?
Also a hubby fave:
Cracked Pepper Pistachios · “Freshly cracked black pepper is one of life’s great flavours. We’ve added it generously to our delicious sauce, carefully poured that over our perfect pistachios, and then slow roasted the whole lot to give you the best in taste and goodness. Pistachios are chock-full of protein, healthy fats and fibre. They also have a low glycemic index (GI) value, which provides a longer lasting source of fuel than a high carb snack. What a nut!”
Laid Back Snacks has something for everyone, and ‘tho every one might not be for me, I don’t have to look far for takers. It’s fantastic to have snacks on hand that are delicious, (mostly) healthy, satisfying and sustaining and the subscription makes that easy. Maybe not easy to keep in the house (ours never last long!) but easy to get there.
