Having a variety of grab-and-go, keto-friendly snacks has really been helpful at keeping me on track as I continue on my keto journey.
Even more so now, as we have been having the majority of our groceries and snacks delivered to our home and the options are often limited.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are still pretty easy for me. Snacks, not to much. I haven’t dabbled much into keto baking yet. I also started working out regularly which has definitely increased my appetite.

April 2020 Keto Krate Review
Please keep in mind that this review is being written during a time when a lot of foods are unavailable and prices may be fluctuating. The prices listed are accurate at the time of this post.
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.
Stoka Bar in Birthday Cake
Nutrition: Each bar has 4 grams net carbs, 9 grams protein, 22 grams fat, and 2 grams sugar. It’s gluten free, soy free, dairy free, and vegan.
Sweeteners: erythritol and stevia extract
Review: I tried this and was surprised how much I liked it. It’s crunchy with a lot of texture, but mine came broken in a bunch of pieces. I didn’t see any sprinkles except maybe an orange speck that might have been one, but I really didn’t care.
Overall, I would buy these again (hopefully for a little bit lower price!) and hope that they wouldn’t arrive broken.
Nush Pineapple Mango Cake
Nutrition: Each serving has 4 grams of net carbs, 5 grams of protein, 13 grams of fat and 1 grams of sugar. It’s gluten free.
Sweeteners: erythritol and monk fruit
Review: I have yet to try this cake and will update this section as soon as I do.
Jimmy! Protein Bar in Macadamia Nut
Nutrition: Each serving has 4 grams of net carbs, 9 grams of protein, 16 grams of fat and 2 grams of sugar. They are gluten and grain free.
Sweeteners: erythritol and stevia
Review: This is another bar that I was too excited to try, but ended up really liking. I’m finding more and more of these keto bars are not dry and tough. This one has a weird texture where it looks like it might be really chewy, but it’s not.
The taste is really good and I would definitely eat these again.
HighKey Mini Cookies in Chocolate Chip
Nutrition: There are 2 grams of net carbs, 13 grams of fat, 3 grams of protein, and 1 gram of sugar in each serving. They are gluten and grain free.
Sweeteners: erythritol, monk fruit, and stevia
Review: I actually love HighKey cookies. My fiancé bought me a couple of bags of their chocolate flavor cookies for Valentine’s Day this year and I was hooked. They do have a slight cooling effect to them from the erythritol but it’s not as noticeable as some other foods that are made with it.
The cookies are small, but a serving is 6 cookies. I definitely feel like that’s a good size serving.
I have and will buy HighKey cookies again and am looking forward to trying more HighKey products soon!
Revol Snax Matcha Latte Coconut Bites
Nutrition: Each serving has 1 gram of net carbs, 14 grams of fat, 3 grams of protein and less than 1 gram of sugar. They are grain and dairy free as well as vegan.
They do not state that they are gluten free, however, I do not see any ingredients on the label that contain gluten. It may just be that there is a possibility of cross contamination or they have yet to be certified gluten free.
Sweeteners: allulose, erythritol and monk fruit
Review: when I first saw this item, I immediately thought that I wouldn’t like it. I have tried and tried to get into matcha tea (although it was years ago), but just didn’t care for it.
For whatever reason, I really wanted to try these. In fact, this is actually the first item that I tried after opening my krate. And, I love them. I even jumped onto Amazon.com to see if they had them there and how much they are (they do, as noted above under “price.”)
The first thing that I noticed is that these taste mostly like coconut with a little sweetness from the vanilla “cream” inside of them. I don’t taste much matcha at all. They texture is very close to that of shredded coconut so it does come off a bit dry.
The cream is not really cream. It’s barely visible and has almost the same exact look and feel of the coconut. My guess is that it blends together with the other ingredients when they are made.
The reviews on Amazon are harsh! The package shows what looks like a very liquid-y cream in the center so people feel that it’s false advertising.
It honestly doesn’t bother me, although I agree that the picture on the package does not actually represent what you will see inside. I will still buy them and may even try other flavors.
Quevos Sour Cream and Onion “Chips”
Nutrition: Each serving has 4 grams of net carbs, 10 grams of fat, 8 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar.
Review: I have yet to try these chips and will update this section as soon as I do.
Dang Coconut Chips in Tropical Mango
Nutrition: Each serving has 5 grams of net carbs, 17 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, and 1 gram of sugar. They are gluten, soy, and dairy free as well as vegan.
Sweeteners: stevia and monk fruit
Review: I’ve had Dang’s regular toasted coconut chips in the past and really love them. I especially appreciate that the chips are quite large. Most toasted coconut is shredded.
These coconut chips have the perfect blend of coconut and mango flavor. They are crunchy but do have a typical coconut texture and mouthfeel to them.
I like them a lot. The carb count is a bit high, but they are made with real mango juice so I assume some of the carbs come from that.
I would definitely recommend Dang Coconut Chips and will likely buy these again. I will probably try a different flavor just because mango is not a personal favorite.
Field Trip Crispy Cuts Pork Rinds in Parmesan Peppercorn
Price: The Field Trip website is currently out of stock of all of their pork rinds and the prices are not listed now. I did find them for $33.45 for 12 bags on Amazon.com. Other flavors are about $10 less so this may fluctuate quite a bit!
Nutrition: There is 1 gram of net carbs, 6 grams of fat, and 7 grams of protein in each serving.
Review: here we are again. Pork Rinds. I don’t eat them so I haven’t tried this product and don’t plan to. I have tried one tiny little nibble of a pork rind in the last month during a health food store tour and have no interest in doing it again. Sorry.
If you like them and also like Parmesan peppercorn flavor, you’ll probably enjoy these. I’m not judging.
Sweetwood Smokehouse Fatty Original Smoked Meat Stick
Price: $30 for 10 meat sticks with free shipping on the Sweetwood Smokehouse website.
Nutrition: the nutritional information is not on the package.
Sweeteners: sugar (A lot of meat sticks of this kind have a small amount of sugar in them. It’s usually less than 1 gram and often labeled as 0 grams in the nutrition facts.).
Review: I don’t get too excited about meat sticks unless they are a unique flavor or something really different. This one is shorter and fatter than most but not flavored. It’s good and great to grab-and-go, just not overly special.
Moon Cheese Cheddar Believe It
Nutrition: There are no carbs, 14 grams of fat, and 11 grams of protein in each serving. They are made solely from cheese.
Review: I do like these types of crispy cheese snacks. This Moon Cheese is similar to the Whisps that were in last month’s Keto Krate, but these are cheddar flavor and round, like little balls.
They are great for a grab-and-go snack. I’d buy these if I saw them in-store, especially on a road trip or something like that.
Legendary Foods Pizza Flavored Almonds
Price: $5.99 for a 4 ounce package or $27.99 for 12 one ounce packages with free shipping on orders over $50 on the Legendary Foods website or $22.99 for 4 4-ounce bags and $27.99 for 12 one ounce bags on Amazon.com.
Nutrition: There are 4 grams of net carbs, 7 grams of protein, and 18 grams of fat per serving. They are gluten free.
Review: well, this one got my attention. I have had all kinds of different flavors of almonds – I even make my own Chipotle Chili Almonds. But, I have never seen or even heard of pizza flavored almonds.
I’m a big fan of switching up flavors to avoid getting bored with the same foods though, so I was actually kind of excited to try these.
They are spot on pizza flavor. It’s really kind of weird! The ingredient list is a bit long and does contain some foods that some strict keto dieters might not want to eat (soluble corn fiber, smoke flavoring).
If you’re not super strict, and craving pizza or just in need of something different, then give these a try! I’m still surprised that I enjoyed these so much and may end up purchasing more in the future.
Is Keto Krate Worth It?
Now that I’m on my 3rd month of Keto Krate, I can say with certainty that it’s absolutely worth it. Here is a breakdown as to why I believe this.
First, in order to be able to try all of these products, you often (almost always) have to buy an entire box or multiple packs online since a lot of these foods are not yet available in stores or are only available in some health food stores. You can see the online prices in the pricing section of each item listed above.
For example, to try the Quevos, I would have had to pay either $15.00 for a variety pack of 5 bags or $29.99 for 12 bags of just the Sour Cream and Onion flavor on Amazon. If I didn’t like them, that would basically just be money lost.
Second, the total value of the items, should you be able to buy them all individually, is about the same or more than the cost of the box and that’s not factoring in any shipping costs.
Third, it’s a really great way to find some keto friendly items to help you in your journey. This month my favorite finds that I’ve tried so far are the Revol Snax Matcha Latte Coconut Bites, the Dang Coconut Chips and strangely enough the Legendary Foods Pizza Almonds.
In this box there are 18 servings of keto-friendly snacks.
