After jumping back into keto on February 1st, I thought I might do better long-term if I could find some grab-and-go keto-friendly snacks besides the same old meat and cheese.
Don’t get me wrong, I love meat and cheese snacks, but sometimes I want something crunchy, or spongy, or just anything else besides meat and cheese.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are easy for me. Snacks, not to much. So, after researching a few keto subscription boxes, I decided to sign up for Keto Krate.
You may have seen the affiliate link disclaimer above. Full disclosure: I was NOT a Keto Krate affiliate when I signed up for this box and I did pay for it. I reached out to Keto Krate after trying it to inquire about becoming an affiliate because I absolutely loved it.

February 2020 Keto Krate Review
This Keto Krate review includes some basic information about each product including the approximate price, some nutrition facts, any sweeteners in the ingredients, and my own personal thoughts on the product after sampling it.
I did NOT receive any coupons or discount codes. I will be looking into this further if they are not included in my next box. I am thinking that the discounts may be on the prices of the items in the members only store.
Magic Spoon Cereal in Fruity Flavor (7 ounces, 7 servings)
Price: $39.00 for 4 boxes on the Magic Spoon website. Not currently available on Amazon.
Nutrition: Each serving has 3 grams net carbs, 12 grams protein, 6 grams fat, and 0 grams sugar. It’s gluten free, soy free and grain free.
Sweeteners: allulose, monk fruit, stevia
Review: I’ve heard a lot about keto cereal in the last year or so, but never tried it. It’s not available in stores near me and I didn’t want to spend so much money on a product that I may not like.
Needless to say, I was super excited that my first Keto Krate had a box of cereal in it. And, at 7 ounces, this is full size.
The texture is awesome and the flavor was pretty good. It’s not as sweet as I was expecting but, for me, that’s not a bad thing.
The only thing that I didn’t like was that it sticks in your teeth. And, the hefty price tag.
Would I buy this again? Yes, but I probably won’t unless the price comes down or I get really tired of eggs for breakfast.
Better Than Good Snacks Ranch Veggie Protein Puffs (0.88 ounces, 1 serving)
Price: $23.95 for 8 bags on the Better Than Good website. They are not currently available on Amazon.
Nutrition: Each serving has 3 grams of net carbs, 16 grams of protein, 3.5 grams of fat and 2 grams of sugar. It’s gluten free and soy free.
Sweeteners: There are no added sweeteners.
Review: These little protein puffs are small balls that are about the size of some cereals. The size and shape made them kind of awkward to eat and I much would have preferred a larger crisp.
The initial flavor is really good, but it gets strong fast. I enjoyed them but couldn’t eat the whole bag in one sitting. It took 3 days for me to finish the bag.
Would I buy them again? Probably not. The price isn’t too bad, but the flavor just isn’t one that I enjoy in a snack.
Intakt Snacks Crunchy Cheese in Spicy (1 ounce, 1 serving)
Price: $10.99 for a 4 pack or $14.99 for a 6 pack on Amazon only.
Nutrition: Each serving has 2 grams of net carbs, 6 grams of protein, and 6 grams of fat. They are gluten free.
Sweeteners: There are no added sweeteners.
Review: I liked these okay. I prefer a non spicy cheese chip and usually only when I need something to pair with dip.
They do make some other flavors. I really do want to try the mozzarella and blue cheese flavor!
DNX Uncured Bacon Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper Bar (1.25 ounce bar, 1 serving)
Nutrition: There are 0 grams of net carbs, 10 grams of fat, and 11 grams of protein in each bar. They are gluten and soy free.
Sweeteners: There are no added sweeteners.
Review: These taste very much like most meat sticks or bars but without the added sugars. I enjoyed it. I also really appreciated the easy-open wrapper.
Would I buy these again? I don’t think I’d buy a pack of 12, but if I saw these sold individually I would definitely choose this bar over most other meat snacks.
Tomer Kosher Beef Stick (0.9 ounces, 1 serving)
Nutrition: Each beef stick has 1 gram of net carbs, 6 grams of fat, and 7 grams of protein. They are gluten free.
Sweeteners: Corn syrup solids are listed in the ingredients, however sugar is not. I am assuming it’s a very small amount.
Review: Again, these are pretty good meat sticks. I’m not too sure about the corn syrup solids in the ingredient list but the sugar per stick is 0 grams which still makes it a better choice than a lot of other meat sticks.
I wouldn’t purchase a whole pack of these, but would buy individual ones if available.
Ultima Replenisher Electrolytes (3 servings)
Nutrition: These are calorie and carb free as well as gluten free.
Review: In some keto groups I often see people talking about how they need electrolytes – especially in the beginning of starting this diet. I’ve never really had bad keto flu symptoms and used to just drink chicken bone broth when starting back up after a break.
If you’re one of those people who suffers pretty badly with keto flu, you might want to try these. I only tried the raspberry flavor and I have to say that I’m not really a fan.
I’m sure these are better than Powerade Zero or similar drinks, but I couldn’t even finish it. It just had an odd taste to me, likely from the electrolytes themselves since there is no added sweeteners.
Personally, I wouldn’t buy these but it seems I’m the minority. They are rated 4.5 stars on Amazon.
Smartcakes in Vanilla Latte (2 cakes, 2 servings)
Nutrition: Each serving has 0 grams of net carbs after subtracting the fiber and erythritol, 2.5 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein, and only 38 calories per cake. They are also gluten free.
Sweeteners: erythritol, monk fruit
Review: I looked on Amazon for reviews of these before trying them. They just seemed to be too good to be true.
One of the reviews stated they were moldy and had a not-so-pretty picture of the evidence which made me put off trying these for a few days.
Honestly, they are amazing. The texture is the most like actual cake than any other keto baked good that I’ve tried so far. I also really enjoyed the flavor.
They do go bad fast, so you need to either eat both once opened, or freeze them.
I will definitely be buying more of these. Whenever I slip up on keto, you will likely find me with a face full of Tastykakes. These just might help keep me on track!
Explorado Market Cinnamon Roll Soft Batch Cookie (1.94 ounces, 1 serving)
Price: $19.98 for 8 cookies on the Explorado Market website. They are not currently available on Amazon.
Nutrition: There are 2 grams of net carbs, 15 grams of fat, and 5 grams of protein in each cookie. They are gluten free.
Sweeteners: allulose, erytritol
Review: Somehow these soft cookies feel chalky and dry when eating them. The cinnamon flavor is really strong and not well balanced with sweetener.
I like the ingredient list and the concept, but I think it needs a little tweaking – at least for my own personal preferences.
Munk Pack Peanut Butter Granola Bar (1.12 ounce bar, 1 serving)
Nutrition: There are 2 grams of net cars, 5 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fat per bar. They are gluten free, soy free, and grain free.
Sweeteners: allulose, monk fruit
Review: these “granola” bars are probably my favorite item in this month’s Keto Krate. Followed closely by the Smartcakes, Ross Chocolates, and Chocolate Covered Strawberry Keto Bar also in this month’s box.
These bars are made with peanut butter, sunflower seeds, coconut and flaxseeds and taste so much better than your typical dry protein bars.
I do wish they had a chocolate peanut butter version, but they tasted great with a little piece of the Ross Chocolate below.
These are going in my Amazon cart right now! I love them.
Kiss My Keto Chocolate Cookie Dough Bar (1.76 ounces, 1 serving)
Nutrition: There are 3 grams of net carbs, 9 grams of protein, 19 grams of fat, and 1 gram sugar in each bar. They are processed in a facility that also processes wheat and soy.
Sweeteners: erythritol, stevia, monk fruit (labeled as lo han guo)
Review: I was also hesitant to try this bar and the one below it. Just from the weight, it seemed like they’d be more chalky, dry protein bars.
I almost threw it away after one bite, but even though it does have a dryer texture, the taste is okay. It wasn’t my favorite, but it was tolerable. I also liked the little crunchy bits in it. I’m a sucker for added crunch.
I wouldn’t seek them out, but if more come in future keto krates, I’d eat them.
Keto Bars Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bar (1.65 ounces, 1 serving)
Nutrition: There are 5 grams of net carbs, 18 grams of fat, 5 grams of protein, and 3 grams of sugar in each bar.
Sweeteners: erythritol, stevia
Review: I was not expecting to like these bars at all. In fact, I saved it for last. But, I was wrong – they are really good!
They feel like they’d be a dry, chalky bar but that’s not the case at all. They do have a little tartness to them from the strawberry as well as texture from the almonds, coconut, and strawberry seeds.
It’s a great balance of taste and texture.
For the amount of carbs and sugar in these bars, I would say that you really have to love them. But, they are definitely worth it if you can squeeze one into your daily macros once in awhile.
Ross Chocolates Minis Dark Chocolate Thins with Hazelnut (3 ounces, 3 servings)
Price: $39.99 for 8 bags on Amazon. They are not sold on the Ross Chocolates website, nor are they available in stores near me.
Nutrition: Each serving has 2 grams of net carbs, 12 grams of fat, and 1 gram protein. They are gluten free. There is a disclaimer that they may be cross contaminated with soy in the plant they are manufactured in.
Sweeteners: stevia, erytritol
Review: the Amazon reviews on these chocolates is mixed with the lower ratings coming from a people who claim they changed the recipe and don’t like the stevia.
I’m not usually a fan of stevia and find it too sweet. I also am not a fan of the cooling effect of erythritol. However, I found these chocolates to taste very much like regular chocolate.
I didn’t taste much hazelnut, but rather just a hint.
Overall, I would try these again.
Is Keto Krate Worth It?
The simple answer is yes, but here’s a little breakdown as to why Keto Krate is worth it.
First, in order to be able to try all of these products, you often (almost always) have to buy an entire box. For example, to try the Magic Spoon Cereal you would have to buy 4 boxes for $40. That’s the full cost of the krate to try a product you might not like.
Second, the total value of the items, should you be able to buy them all individually, is approximately the same value as the cost of the box.
Third, it’s a really great way to find some keto friendly items to help you in your journey.
I miss cupcakes, but the Smartcakes that I tried in this krate are a great alternative when the craving hits and I don’t ruin my diet.
