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. Then, I loved it so much, I became an affiliate.
The March 2020 Keto Krate is my second box. If you’re interested, you can read my February Keto Krate Review, as well.

March 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.
Fatt Bar in Caramel & Sea Salt Flavor
Price: Fatt Bar is actually a UK product and the prices are in their currency on the Fatt Bar website. You can, however, find them on Amazon. At the time of this post, the price is $15 for a pack of 5 bars.
Nutrition: Each bar has 2 grams net carbs, 2.7 grams protein, 11 grams fat, and 1.6 grams sugar. It’s gluten free, soy free and grain free (although it’s noted on the wrapper that it may contain traces of all of these foods).
Review: This Fatt Bar is made primarily from a variety of nuts. The first ingredient is chicory extract and it also contains inulin, natural flavoring, and salt.
I liked this but I didn’t feel it has much caramel flavor at all. It definitely has the sticky, chewy texture of caramel though.
Overall, I would eat this again, but I don’t think I’d buy it. Maybe in another flavor.
Ketologie Keto Bar in Chocolate Almond Butter
Price: $39.99 for a pack of 12 on the Ketologie website. I was not able to find these on Amazon at the time of this post.
Nutrition: Each serving has 3 grams of net carbs, 14 grams of protein, 17 grams of fat and 2 grams of sugar. They are gluten free and soy free, although it’s not labeled as such.
Sweeteners: stevia extract and monk fruit
Review: Based upon the flavor alone, I really wanted to like this, but I just couldn’t. In the first bite I immediately noticed it was pretty dry. But, it has a little bit of texture in it similar to the Kiss My Keto bar from last month’s review that I ended up liking okay.
A few more bites into it and I didn’t want to finish it. It was just too dry for my tastes. The texture is similar to a traditional protein bar but it crumbles and not in a good way, like a cookie might.
I won’t be purchasing these, unfortunately.
IQ Bar in Peanut Butter Chip
Nutrition: Each serving has 4 grams of net carbs, 11 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat and less that 1 gram of sugar. They are gluten free and vegan.
Sweeteners: allulose, stevia plant extract
Review: Now, this bar is GOOD. It’s moist and chewy with plenty of texture from the peanuts and chocolate chips. You don’t feel like you’re eating a keto or protein bar at all.
They actually aren’t marketing heavily on being keto, but rather a plant-based bar with 6 brain nutrients:
- Lion’s Mane – a superfood for staying sharp
- MCT’s – slow burning fats for mental energy
- Omega-3’s – building blocks for cell membranes
- Flavonoids – polyphenols for fighting free radiacals
- Vitamin E – anti-oxidant for cell membrane support
- Choline – a compound for neurotransmitter support
So, there’s a lot more to these bars than just healthy fats and proteins!
At around $2.00 a bar, these are some of the more reasonably priced keto bars I’ve seen so far. Definitely adding these to my favorites list!
Lenny & Larry’s Keto Cookie in Chocolate Chip
Nutrition: There are 3 grams of net carbs, 15 grams of fat, 8 grams of protein, and 2 grams of sugar in each bar. They are gluten, grain, and egg free, although processed in a plant that also processes these foods.
Sweeteners: erythritol, sugar (in the chocolate chips), stevia extract
Review: This is one of only a handful of keto products that I’ve been able to find in grocery stores. I have tried both this flavor and the peanut butter cookie.
Both flavors have the cooling effect that is common with products sweetened with erythritol. It was kind of a turn off, but I still ate the whole cookie. I do prefer the peanut butter flavor.
I haven’t bought these again, but I’ll still enjoy the one that came in this box.
Ketosis Cups Almond Espresso Chocolate Keto Cups
Price: $3.99 for a pack of 2 cups on the Ketosis Cups website. Shipping is free on orders over $40. I was not able to find this product on Amazon.
Nutrition: Each serving has 2 grams of net carbs, 15 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein and less than 1 gram of sugar. The box does not state they are free of anything, but the ingredients do not include soy, gluten, or grains.
Sweeteners: erythritol and stevia
Review: Again, the cooling effect of the erythritol in this product really comes through, but so does the coffee which creates an interesting combination of flavor.
While I don’t love the erythritol, I do enjoy the coffee flavor and the thin slices of almonds all throughout these chocolate cups.
I’ll enjoy the 2 that came in this box, but I won’t purchase these unless they change the recipe to use a different sweetener.
Kiss My Keto Ketogenic Chocolate with Pumpkin Seeds & Sea Salt
Nutrition: Each serving has 1 gram of net carbs, 13 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein and 0 grams of sugar.
Sweeteners: erythritol and stevia extract
Review: Even though this product contains erythritol, it does not have anywhere near the same degree of cooling effect as some of the previous products above.
The combination of sweet chocolate and salty, crunchy pumpkin seeds is absolutely delicious.
This is definitely a product that I’d not only buy again, but seek out other varieties of.
Pork King Good Nacho Cheddar Flavored Chicharrones
Nutrition: Each serving has 0 grams of net carbs, 5 grams of fat, 8 grams of protein, and 0 grams of sugar. They are gluten free, but not labeled as such.
Sweeteners: erythritol, monk fruit
Review: I can’t tell you how these are because I refuse to try them.
When I started my keto journey (after many years of following low carb), I said I’d never resort to eating pork rinds. Yes, I know there is a whole crowd of pig skin loving people ready to tell me how much I’m missing out, but I’m 100% totally okay with missing out this time.
If they make me try them in culinary arts school, I suppose I will, but I doubt we’ll be learning how to cook with pork rinds – ha!
Whisps Parmesan Cheese Crisps
Price: You can buy Whisps on Amazon.com. The varieties and prices vary greatly. At the time of this post, a pack of 6 bags of Parmesan Whisps is $21.99 with free Prime shipping.
Nutrition: There is 1 gram of net carbs, 10 grams of fat, and 13 grams of protein in each serving. They are made solely from cheese.
Review: This is another product that I’ve had before. I do like these a lot. They are great for using with dips. They are a bit salty tasting so the combination of the crisps with a savory dip like hummus or red pepper dip are a delicious compliment.
My kids like these too so I definitely will be buying these again.
Front Porch Pecans in Sea Salt Flavor
Price: You can buy Front Porch Pecans on Amazon.com. They are currently $21.99 for a pack of 4 bags. You can also check the Where to Buy section on the Front Porch website to see if they are available in a store near you.
Nutrition: There are 1 grams of net cars, 2 grams of protein, and 22 grams of fat per serving. They are gluten free, soy free, and grain free.
Review: To be honest, I usually just buy store brand pecans. I didn’t realize there could be much of a difference, but let me tell you – these pecans are so much better!
I don’t know how to describe the difference but it’s definitely a better texture and taste. I like the added sea salt, as well. It’s the perfect amount.
My store brand pecan days are over. I’ll be seeking these out to buy asap!
Choc Zero Milk Chocolate Pecan Almond Bark
Price: $6.99 a bag on the Choc Zero website with free shipping on orders over $34.99 or $14.99 for 2 bags on Amazon.com with free Prime shipping. The pecan flavor is not currently available on Amazon. It appears to be a seasonal flavor.
Nutrition: There are 3 grams of net carbs, 1 grams of protein, 13 grams of fat, and 1 gram sugar in each bar. They are gluten and soy free.
Sweeteners: monk fruit extract
Review: Choc Zero has long been my go-to keto chocolate brand. It tastes so much like traditional chocolate but without all the sugar.
I believe the pecan flavor is new, because I’ve tried every other flavor of their bars. The coconut is my favorite, but I like and purchase all of them.
I will definitely be purchasing this flavor with my next Choc Zero order.
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 Ketologie Bars, I would have had to pay $39.99 for 12 bars. As it turned out, I didn’t like them so that would be the cost of this entire Keto Krate down the drain to be able to try just one product.
Second, the total value of the items, should you be able to buy them all individually, is 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 are the Kiss My Keto Ketogenic Chocolate with Pumpkin Seeds and Sea Salt and the Front Porch Pecans. I’m also happy that I got to try the Choc Zero Chocolate Pecan Bars before my next order.
