The keto diet has become an incredibly popular eating approach, one that many people swear by. This is hardly a surprise, as the low-carb and high-fat diet promotes weight loss while providing many potential health benefits. It’s also a welcome alternative to modern foods, which tend to be highly processed and full of artificial ingredients.
Yet, despite the benefits, the keto diet can be challenging. You need to cut out many common foods and ingredients. This makes it much more difficult to eat food that you enjoy, especially if you’re short on time or energy. Some people turn to keto meal delivery services or meal kits to make things easier, but what about snacks?
It’s always good to have some easy and healthy snacks on hand. These can often be the difference between sticking to your keto diet and giving up. This is where keto subscription boxes come in. They contain various snacks (and sometimes ingredients) that make the keto diet much easier to follow. You might even discover some new favorites along the way.
Keto Krate is easily the most well-known keto box out there. The subscription is regularly featured on keto diet blogs, with many people featuring unboxing videos where they highlight the various snacks each month. Reviews tend to be positive, so it’s no surprise that Keto Krate boasts a 98% satisfaction rate.
The included snacks never have more than 5 grams of net carbs. Most of the time the carb count is considerably lower. The company also avoids gluten, aspartame and maltitol as ingredients.
Keto Krate is a brilliant way to discover new snacks that you would never have found otherwise. You get at least 8 of these in your monthly box. The company also includes coupon savings, giving discounts if you buy some of the snacks locally.
There are 2 monthly plans to choose from. The first, Nibbler, costs $19.99 per month and provides 4 or more snacks in each Krate. The second, Muncher, costs $39.99 per month. While the price sounds high, Muncher does provide at least 8 snacks, including some unusual choices.
The Keto Box
The Keto Box hasn’t been in circulation for as long as many of the other examples on this list. It’s also another snack box that doesn’t specify the carb content that they’re aiming for, which is a shame.
Don’t let those aspects put you off. The Keto Box also has some clear advantages. One is their transparency. There are plenty of images of the products you might find in the box. The site even has images of previous boxes. The style gives you a good idea about what you can expect before you sign up for anything.
The Keto Box also aims to be responsive. While there are currently no customization options, the people behind the site look for customer feedback following each shipment. They use this to guide future boxes. The style helps ensure that the selection is always the best that it can possibly be.
Subscription to the box costs $40 per month. This provides you with between 8 and 11 snacks each month.
My Keto Snack Box
My Keto Snack Box costs $38 per month, with no contract. This gives you the ability to cancel any time. Shipping is free in the United States. The box can be sent internationally too, but you need to pay extra to do so.
The basic version of My Keto Snack Box has 8 to 11 snacks. Some of these come from keto and low carb brands, while others are conventional snacks that are simply low in carbs. All of the snacks no more than 5 grams of net carbs (per serving), so they’re perfect for keto.
Onnit Keto Box
The Onnit Keto Box is a little different than most other options, as it doesn’t just contain snacks. Onnit also includes various supplements in the mix, which are mostly produced by the company. Supplements can be useful in many situations, helping to improve your health. Some may even make it easier to stay in ketosis.
The box costs $55.95 each month (you save 15% if you order on subscription). This is more expensive than most other boxes. The price difference is probably due to the supplements.
For some people, this approach might work perfectly. It offers a good chance to try out some of the products from Onnit, ones that you might not want to pay full price for.
However, Onnit isn’t fully transparent. They don’t provide details about the net carbs per snack. They don’t even say how many snacks come in the box. While some people love the snack selection, other reviewers suggest that you’re not getting much for the price that you pay.
Powerful Keto is a keto box with a masculine twist. Many of the snacks are similar to what you would find from other companies – except that Powerful Keto avoids any ‘foofoo food’. It’s not entirely clear what this means in practice, but the male focus alone might be a reason to consider the subscription.
You’re paying $40 each month for the box, which contains somewhere between 6 and 10 snacks. These items tend to be high in fat and protein, while still being low in carbs and sugar. You can also get a discount by pre-paying for 6 or 12 months at a time.
Keto boxes often contain similar snacks, simply because there aren’t that many keto producers out there. Keto Delivered is a little different. The company focuses on artisanal products, ones that are produced in small batches.
This style means that you’re getting more unusual snacks, ones that you wouldn’t find elsewhere. The selection includes examples like Moon Cheese, NYC Rooftop Pepper Sauce and Empire Mayonnaise Sriracha.
Each box contains between 5 and 7 different products. These tend to be full-size and the total retail volume is always $40 or more. There is a strong emphasis on ‘ultra low carb food products’. Despite this, Keto Delivered doesn’t provide details about the net carb levels they are aiming for.
KetoCan gets its name because the box is designed for Canadian residents (although it does ship worldwide). Subscriptions cost $46 CAD every month and they automatically renew until you cancel membership.
The box is a great choice for finding new snacks, as KetoCan focuses on local and Canadian suppliers. There is also an emphasis on including new products from month-to-month. This means that you’re not getting the same snacks each time. Instead, there is plenty of variation to keep you interested.
The main limitation is that the company doesn’t provide details about the carb content. This could mean that some of the snacks have more carbs than you would like.
Sleek Treat is marketed as a low carb box, but it is keto friendly as well. The company has a strong focus on health and nutrition overall, aiming to provide natural products that don’t contain any added sugar.
There are 2 main versions of the box. Their main one is the Sleek Treat Signature Monthly Subscription. It normally contains somewhere between 7 and 9 different snacks, many of which rely on natural sugar alternatives. The box costs $34.99 per month when ordering month-to-month. You can also pay a little more if you want the box to be frozen before shipping and insulated.
There is also a Sleek Treat Mini. This is a much smaller subscription, just providing 3 to 5 low carb snacks. It costs $14.99 per month. The size and price make it perfect if you just want a little something each month.
This is another box that doesn’t provide details about the carb content of the snacks. Not offering the information is always a slight problem. That’s even more true for companies like this, where keto isn’t their main focus. It isn’t clear whether their version of keto friendly is going to match yours.
Not Pie Keto Subscription Box
Not Pie is best known for its cupcakes and Cupcake of the Month Club. Those aren’t keto-friendly, but the company does also offer a Keto Subscription Box. The healthy treats rely on a specialized sugar alternative, which takes advantage of monk fruit and D-ribose. Other ingredients are carefully chosen to ensure that the cupcakes offer health advantages and have a similar texture to regular cupcakes.
Signing up for a subscription is simple – there's just one option. This is a 3-month membership, which costs $95 for the 3 months. The first month of your subscription will always provide keto brownies, while the second will provide chocolate chunk cookies. The third box is a mystery, based on whatever the company dreams up that month.
Just be aware that the company does talk about using cassava flour in their description. Cassava flour is relatively high in carbs and is normally avoided in keto baking. This could mean that the treats aren’t as keto-friendly as the company suggests.
