Review: Macro Greens Bar (Chocolate & Cinnamon)

I was looking forward to trying this bar from my July Vegan Cuts Snack Box as this was the first bar I've received in either boxes (Conscious Box or Vegan Cuts) that was chocolate (and I love chocolate). So, as with all my previous bars, I brought this one to work with me to munch on during my break.

Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed. The bar was littered with nuts and, sadly, I hate nuts in chocolate. Although the chocolate part itself tasted different from other junk chocolate bars, I think I might have actually liked this bar if the nuts were taken out. Or even blended or something. I like my chocolate bars to be "smooth", not crunchy.

Even though I finished the bar over a couple of weeks, I'm definitely not going to buy this flavor of bar in the future.

Better late than never though ;)

Review: Food Should Taste Good Chips (Multigrain)

Finally got around to trying these chips from my July Vegan Cuts Snack Box. I was excited about trying this product the most I think because I had seen these Food Should Taste Good chips on sale where I work for months now, but never got around to actually trying them. But I finally have now, thanks to Vegan Cuts.

Food Should Taste Good multigrain chips

My initial reaction upon opening the bag was that the chips were pretty big. I always thought they were smaller. Boy, was I wrong!

As for the taste, I (sadly) wasn't that big of a fan. It wasn't horrible, but I don't think I'll ever buy the multigrain flavor in the future.

I did have a coupon for the bigger size bag, so I bought the barbeque sweet potato chips. I'm (guiltily) in love with the Lays Stax BBQ chips, so I was comparing them to these. Sadly, I didn't like this flavor of Food Should Taste Good chips either. Maybe third time's the charm with another flavor?

Review: Organic Flavrz (Revive)

So, I finally got around to trying one of these flavored drink mixes from my very first, June Conscious Box. I was at home working one day when I got thirsty, but wanted something a little more exciting than just plain water. So, I filled up my Blender bottle with water, then dumped in the entire contents of the Revive, Superfruit Sports Drink mix, and then shook the bottle to mix it together.

Maybe it's some kind of placebo effect, but knowing that it's vegan, organic, and non-toxic (compared to like Vitamin Water), it tasted so yummy! I'm excited now to try out the other flavors I got.

Added some ice to make it colder

I can definitely see myself buying these in the future :) Two thumbs up, I definitely recommend it!
