The goods!

kcal: 110  protein: 8 g  fat: 8 g  sugar: 0 g  net carbs: 0 g

retail value $11.99

First impression was a like.

This is the first non jerky type of meat to really be included in the Krate and it was a good one. We got the Campania Handcrafted Uncured Italian Salami, if there’s one thing I love more than jerky it’s definitely salami. I don’t have a lot of experience with uncured meats but this one paired well with some stone ground mustard and Parmesan crisps.

You do need to make sure and remove the outer casing before serving though, but it’s absolutely beautiful when sliced!

Innocent Chocolate

It claims to have zero net calories, but I don’t know about that (still skeptical). So I just counted the calories into my day, but it should work out to effectively zero net carbs (just a touch skeptical on that one). Otherwise this stuff is delicious, it went really well with some natural almond butter for dipping.

It may not the best sugar free chocolate that I’ve tried but it’s also not totally gross. Innocent Chocolate is sweetened with erythritol & stevia but still has a nice dark chocolate bite to it.


Brooklyn Biltong

serving size: 1 oz

kcal: 70  protein: 12 g  fat: 2 g  sugar: 0 g  net carbs: 0 g

retail value $9.99

retail value $9.99

First impression was a not for me.

I’m a fan of jerky but this biltong was more like jerky crumbles. I really had mixed feelings with this one, it’s not bad but it’s not my favorite. I could really taste the allspice they used in the seasoning and I’m not sure if I really liked the flavor that made. For practically a $10 price tag I don’t think this will be a repeat for me.

Like most Parmesan/cheese crisps by itself it kind of tastes like overcooked cheese to me, but with a dip these are great! I enjoyed mine with guacamole, they also paired well with some spicy chili I made. I will say that these are a lot sturdier than some of your average Parmesan crisps and they are definitely bigger than bite size. I might not go out searching for them but I also wouldn’t’ mind trying them again. I did like the addition of chia seeds, it made them feel a bit fancier than a normal Parmesan crisp, lol.

Miracle Noodle

serving size: 3 oz (85 g)

kcal: 0  protein: 0 g  fat: 0 g  sugar: 0 g  net carbs: 0 g

retail value $3.99

retail value $3.99

First impression was a big like!

I’ll admit I was a little hesitant to try these, but now I’m glad I did. If prepared properly the actual shiritake noodle doesn’t carry any taste on it’s own. (Thoroughly rinse and then pan fry the noodles for best results.) We received the Angel Hair variety and I had mine with some shrimp, grape tomatoes and a fresh homemade avocado pesto. It went realllly well with the strong pesto flavor without adding any unwanted flavor itself. I will suggest serving it with a strong flavored sauce or seasoning b/c the actual “pasta” doesn’t contribute any flavor, use a bland sauce you’ll get a bland dish. So make sure to season appropriately! For a price tag around $4 I will be making this again.

Raw Revolution Glo Bars

serving size: 1 bar

kcal: 180  protein: 15 g  fat: 11 g  sugar: 2 g  net carbs: 3 g

retail value $1.99

retail value $1.99

First impression was a love!

We were given the Creamy Peanut Butter & Sea Salt flavor and it was divine. It’s a protein bar made with raw superfoods (including things like coconut oil, chia seeds & flax seeds). I really like this one! It even has that oil sheen you get from natural peanut butter and isn’t sweetened, so the flavor can really shine through. My favorite part is the addition of the seeds, it adds a little something extra. Will definitely pick some more up if I see them again.

    I’m glad you mentioned that the Raw Rev bar was yummy — I just looked it up and apparently they carry it at one of my stores…I just usually don’t have time to turn over every single bar in the ‘protein bar’ section to see which I can actually (i.e., not many of them!) so now I will be looking for this one next time I’m there. 🙂
