Vegan Cuts recently asked me if I would like to try their September box. I have wanted to try them out for a long time, so of course I said yes! What’s Vegan Cuts, you ask? Vegan Cuts is a monthly subscription service, most known for their monthly box full of delicious snacks, they also now have a monthly beauty box and also allow you to purchase vegan food and beauty products outside of the monthly boxes.
The September box was full of delicious looking snacks that I couldn’t wait to try. In addition to being entirely vegan, almost everything in the boxes are gluten-free as well. This box was entirely gluten-free from what I could see, bonus!
Let’s take a look at what’s inside:
Seaweed Love Roasted Seaweed with Olive Oil
I love roasted seaweed. If you have never had it before, it is as addictive as kale chips with a salty sea flavour. The addition of olive oil made these ones taste really good.
Raw Snacks Cranberry Cashew Bar
This was really good, too! It was similar to a Lara bar, with lots of dates, nuts and cranberries. Yum!
Home Free Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies are nut free and whole grain, and gluten-free (contain oats). They were good, and I would probably buy them in the future if I was looking to satisfy a cookie craving.
Kiwa Vegetable Chip Mix
These were one of my favourites from the box. The mix contains a mix of cassava, arracacha, green bananas, beetroot, and sweet potato. I ate almost the entire bag for lunch one day (please don’t judge me!). I will be looking out for these in stores, they were delicious!
Barnana Banana Bites
These were really good. They are all raw, gluten-free, vegan and organic. Sold! If you love raw date bars, you would probably like these as well as they have a similar texture, but a banana flavour. They were pretty addicting, but made with only bananas so they are a guilt-free snack!
Sunology Natural Sunscreen
I haven’t had the chance to try this sample yet, but I have been looking for a sunscreen that is both more natural and vegan. This seems like it should fit the bill!
Herbal Zap Supplement
Based on Ayurveda, this is a powdered supplement for boosting immunity. It had a nice spicy kick. After I had it, I read that they suggest trying to mix it into a cup of tea to create a masala tea. I wish I had of tried that, it sounds delicious.
Tee Chia Super Seeds Cereal
Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of this cereal. The directions said to add hot water, and the cereal didn’t really absorb the water so it was a bit too goopy for me. If I was to try it again, I would probably try a smaller amount of boiling water and hope for a better texture.
Atlantic Natural Foods Vegetarian Tuna
This was my least favourite item out of the box. It is most likely a personal dislike of the product, as I stopped eating fish before I even became vegetarian. The thought of eating fish doesn’t appeal to me. When I opened the can, immediately I could smell something fishy, and I drained the product like a can of tuna. I took one bite and it tasted too real for me. That being said, if you are missing the taste of fish, maybe this is the perfect review for you!
Overall I thought the vegan cuts September box was awesome! Subscribing to a box means that every month you get to try different vegan products at a great price. In addition to the snacks, you also get coupons! Who doesn’t love coupons? I haven’t seen many of the products that are part of the box in stores here in Canada, so it is a good way to try things you might not have access to otherwise. As I mentioned before, for fellow gluten-free people, most of the products are gluten-free as well.
Today is the last day to get your orders in for the October box, but there’s always November!
