Laid Back Snacks Review January 2023
Laid Back Snacks is a healthy snack subscription service with more than 30 different varieties to choose from including gluten-free, nut-free and vegan options. I have a subscription that sends a surprise mix of 6 snacks once a month. Here’s a look my latest 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 can pick 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.
My January box was a mix of sweet and savoury snacks, including a couple of snacks we’ve never tried. (We’ve been fans of the co. for years so we’ve sampled quite a few.)
Most bags have four portions, roughly a palmful each.
Top to bottom:
Wasabi Me · “Wasabi can be dangerous if mistaken for guacamole. Who hasn’t done that before, right?! That’s why we’ve lightly coated our crunchy peas with wasabi to give you just the right amount of heat in your snack. With both salt and spice, this is a big personality snack for big personality snackers. Wasabi Me isn’t all party though. Its substance includes high protein, high fibre, and high nutrient levels to help you relax throughout your day.”
My fella loves snacks with a bit of a kick so I’m not surprised this one went over so well. And I can’t stand anything the least bit spicy, so he can have it. (Call it Wasabi Him, not Wasabi Me.)
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!”
Even pepper is too spicy for me so I passed on these too but they’re a hit with my guy. And so good for you too!
First Date Bites · “First dates can be really great, or slow and excruciating experiences. There’s often not a lot of middle ground … we think you’ll be crushing on our First Date Bites from the opening hello. In the pros column, each bite contains deliciously sweet fresh dates, bone fortifying almonds and high fibre quinoa crisps. In the cons column, you might get a little handsy once you get started. Remember to play it cool and leave something for the second date.”
Finally one for me! I’ve been wanting to try these bites for ages and they’re scrumptious. So fresh! And the shredded coconut on the outside keeps your paws from getting sticky. I recently got back on the bike and even just one of these before a workout helps me push it harder than I would otherwise.
Tuscan Road Trip · “Everyone loves a road trip, especially with a companion like this! This scrumptious mix was inspired by our healthy hunger for adventure. Explore new horizons with all the goodness of super-berries, mighty nuts, and delicious dark chocolate. Almonds help build and maintain strong bones, while cherries are considered a great source of dietary fibre. And let’s not forget, dark chocolate is linked to 40+ health benefits. Happy travels!”
I could eat this entire bag in one sitting. So much delicious goodness between the crunchy nuts, the delicious dark choco and the tart dried cherries. Love LOVE this one! 😋 My favourite in the box.
Plus two more snacks! Maui Pineapple for me and Sweet Sriracha Crunch for him.
Maui Pineapple · “One bite of our juicy pineapple will have you channeling white sandy beaches. In addition to awesome powers of teleportation, these tropical fruits are packed full of incredible antioxidants. Maui Pineapple is a wholesome super-snack for you and the lucky people you share them with. Each delicious bite provides a healthy boost of fibre and essential nutrients. Everything you need to help keep that bod in tip-top shape!”
Sweet Sriracha Crunch · “Sweet Sriracha Crunch is our happy-days mashup of heat and sweet. While your taste buds zing with spicy sriracha, the maple syrup sweetness comes through to smooth out the experience. If you’re looking for that satisfying potato chip crunch without all the nasties, then look no further than corn nuts and our roasted edamame. Edamame is low calorie, contains no cholesterol and is an excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium. Happy crunching!”
