Let’s talk snacks…… Do you love them? Do you hate them? I happen to be a HUGE fan of snacks and need to have a wide selection in the pantry at all times. I pack a “snack bag” every time we leave the house these days so a subscription like Laid Back Snacks is a must-have in my books.

Choose from 5, 10 or 20 snack box sizes. Delivery is always free for 10 and 20 snacks, and free to some areas on 5 snacks.
Choose the snacks you want each month or let them surprise you!
Here’s a closer look at the snacks we received in our September Laid Back Snacks box….
We received a fun little bonus item in our September box – withinUS Coconut Creamer
Maple Praline Almonds
Maple Praline Almonds are our salute to the Great White North. Thanks for being awesome, Canada! We use the finest maple syrup from Quebec and mix in some praline deliciousness. The two go together like flannel and lumberjacks. These crunchy nuggets are artisanally crafted in small batches using superior grade California almonds. It’s not all indulgence though, almonds also help to build and maintain strong bones. Strong bones for everyone!
Ingredients: Dry roasted almonds, Sugars (cane sugar, maple syrup), Natural flavour
This first snack is a Laid Back Snacks favorite. I would definitely consider this to be one of their more popular snacks, and it’s one I will reach for when craving something sweet. Instead of snacking on a chocolate bar I will make myself a cup of tea and grab a handful of these yummy almonds. Sometimes you only need a few to keep the sweet cravings at bay.
You don’t need to be a cinna-maniac to enjoy this delicious mix. For those who love the sassy spice, prepare to have your socks knocked off. This nutty medley is long on flavour with just the right amount of salty and sweet roasted in. Cashews give you an extended energy boost and help support the immune system, almonds help us build strong bones, and pecans are heart healthy. C’mon Cinnamon, let’s get spicey!
Ingredients: Dry roasted almonds, Dry roasted cashews, Sugar, Dry roasted pecans, Spices, Sea salt, Cornstarch, Expeller pressed canola oil, Natural flavour
I mentioned above that Maple Praline Almonds are one of the most popular Laid Back Snacks, but if I had to choose my personal favourite out of the sweet options, C’Mon Cinnamon would be it. I like the mixture of cashews, almonds and pecans. It’s SO good.
A yawn is a silent scream for coffee. Reaching for your afternoon cup of joe? Maybe it’s time to try something a little different. Is Spicy Joe a coffee-flavoured snack that’s spicy or a spicy snack with coffee flavour? Regardless, coffee and chocolate make life better, so we’ve mixed energy (and mood) boosting dark chocolate coffee beans with protein rich Sriracha cashews, spicy wasabi peas and crunchy wild rice sticks.
Ingredients: Wasabi peas, 70%+ Dark chocolate coffee beans (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla, salt, coffee beans, confectioners glaze, arabic gum), Sriracha cashews (roasted cashews, organic sriracha sauce, garlic powder, kosher salt), Wild rice sticks
Spicy Joe is hit and miss with me. I love the idea behind this mix but I need to be in the right mood to enjoy it. So….. I often find that this one will last in my snack bin longer than most others. I think it’s the chocolate covered coffee beans. They need to be snacked on at specific times during the day:)
Sriracha is so hot right now, in all sorts of ways. We took some time to decide which of our favourite nuts could handle the spicy action this exotic hot sauce brings to the table. It turns out that the smooth, rich flavour of the cashew is the perfect dance partner. Cashews give you an extended energy boost and help support a strong immune system. And Sriracha…well, you’ll have to let your taste buds decide!
Ingredients: Roasted cashews (cashews, canola oil), Sugars (organic sriracha sauce (organic red jalapeño puree, water, organic sugar, organic garlic powder, xanthan gum, citric acid)), Garlic powder, Chili powder, Kosher salt
Sriracha Cashews are up there when it comes to my favorite snack mixes. I love the creamy sweetness of the cashews mixed with the spiciness of the sriracha, it’s the perfect snacking combo.
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.
Ingredients: Corn nuts, roasted black beans, sriracha cashews (roasted cashews, organic sriracha sauce, garlic powder, chili powder, kosher salt)
Lastly we have Mexican Remix and out of the 5 mixes I received this month it would be my absolute favorite. I love the corn nuts, the roasted black beans and the cashews. I love the salty, crunchy, spicy vibe it has going on, and I love that it doesn’t include anything sweet. This is the kind of snack I reach for when a chip craving hits.
Laid Back Snacks Review September 2021 – Final Thoughts
My September Laid Back Snacks brought with it one of my favorite salty snack mixes and one of my favorite sweet snack mixes. I love the variety I receive in each box and I love that my snack bin is stocked up for another 4 weeks. I often grab a pack of my Laid Back Snacks as we rush out the door in the morning, and when baby Steven is ready for pre-school they will be a great addition to his lunch box. Laid Back Snacks is a must-have for anyone who loves snacking!
