September's "Harvest Moon" Sleek Treat Subscripton Box Review

Hey! September's Sleek Treat Subscription Box is once again full of amazing snacks. This month's "Harvest Moon" box contained 9 yummy snacks. Sleek Treat's subscription box always allows me to eat healthy and to put low sugar snacks into my son's lunch box. All of the snacks are great for those who are diabetic or for those who are on a low sugar diet. I know a few people who are diabetics and I know how tough it is for them to find low/no sugar snacks. Sleek Treat works hard each month to find delicious snacks for their subscribers!


I love how each box had a little insert that shows all of the snacks. It also gives me nutritional information, too!

Smart Baking Co. Cinnamon Smartcakes are yummy, flavorful and moist. These Smartcakes are loaded with healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. I love how these are covered with cinnamon on the top. These little cakes are SO light and airy. They pair well with a hot cup of tea or coffee.

Sencha Naturals Green Tea+C Drink Mixes contain 10mg of caffeine. These drink mixes contain whole leaf green tea, acerola cherry and supporting herbs to help you stay well. September's box contained 2 flavors: Original & Dragonfruit/Pitaya. I really liked the effervescence that these had. Great for when having a cold. The original flavor was my favorite.

Nush Foods Blueberry Cakes are truly bursting with blueberry flavor. Nush Cakes are soft, moist and have a cake-like texture. This Blueberry Cake is packed with yummy blueberries! I have had Nush Cakes before and they are one of my go-to snacks. They are very filling!

Intakt Cheese Lover Original Cheese Snacks are made with Soft Buttery Cheese. These cheesy bites resemble the moon's surface. Intakt Cheese Snacks are dehydrated which leaves them super crispy! I love this savory snack. These little cheese crisps pair well with a sandwich. But, I enjoy eating them by the handful!

Noosh Almond Butter had 3 of their products in this month's box. Original, Cupcake and Coffee Almond Butter! Noosh's almond butter recipe is simple and all-natural. It's made with real California Almonds. This was my very first time trying these almond butters. I really enjoyed the Cupcake flavor. Noosh's Almond Butter is smooth and creamy. They have a wonderful taste to them. One of the best almond butters that I have ever had!

Quest Maple Waffle Protein Bars are sweet and have a gooey maple syrup flavor. These protein bars make a great breakfast. This protein bar tastes just like a buttery, syrupy waffle. I love it's chewy texture and I love how it doesn't have that sweetener aftertaste to it.

ThinkThin Protein Cakes have a sweet vanilla flavored center, white frosting and topped with colorful sprinkles. ThinkThin Protein Cakes are high in protein and are made with premium ingredients. This protein bar tastes just like a vanilla protein shake. The white frosting pairs so well with the chewy vanilla center. My sons loved them!

My Thoughts

Sleek Treat always contains the best low/no sugar snacks. Most of the snacks in September's box were new to me and a few of the snacks I have had before. All-in-all, the featured snacks were all really good. Snacks that I feel comfortable giving to my family. Especially my kids because they aren't loaded with sugar. My favorites from September: Noosh's Cupcake Almond Butter, Nush Foods' Blueberry Cake, ThinkThin Protein Cake and Intakt Snacks Cheese Snack. September's Sleek Treat offered a great variety of sweet and savory snacks. This is a subscription box that I highly recommend!

Pressels Pretzel Review

Hey! Welcome to A Sampling Bee! I have something super yummy to share with you today! Raise your hands if you love pretzels. If so, you are going to love Pressels Pretzels! These pretzels are unlike any other pretzel. Pretzlels have always been one of my favorite go-to snacks. So, I'd say that I am quite the pretzel connoisseur. ;) Pretzels are just such a healthy, yummy snack. Much healthier option than potato chips or Doritos.

Pressels are healthy pretzels that are low in sodium and low in fat. Pressels are available in 4 unique flavors: Sesame, Everything, Sriracha and Sea Salt. These yummy pretzels are baked and they have 80% less fat than potato chips. As far as sodium goes, Pressels only have 210mg per 17 pieces. Those 17 pieces are only 99 calories! Pressels are non-GMO, Vegan, trans fat free, MSG free, Preservative free and white sugar-free and contain no artificial colors. Pressels are made with 2 basic ingredients: wheat and flour. Simple is best!

Everything Pressels are coated with onion, sesame, garlic and black caraway. These taste just like an everything bagel! I wonder how they'd taste dipped in cream cheese?!
Sesame Pressels are coated with the best sesame seeds from India. I love anything that has sesame seeds on the top. These Pressels remind me of every hamburger bun- covered with sesame seed!
Sea Salt Pressels are coated with sea salt granules. These are salted just right. Not overly salted like most pretzel brands.
Sriracha Pressels are the spicy! They are coated with sun-dried chilies. The Sriracha Pressels have just the right amount of heat! I love dipping this flavor into a cold guac!

My Thoughts

These Pressels are SO good! They're flavorful and super crunchy. Pressels differ from any ordinary pretzel simply because they taste better and they are made to be a healthier snacking option for us. Pressel has come up with some pretty amazing flavors. There aren't a lot of flavored pretzels out there so that makes this brand unique. I find myself chomping on Pressels every time I need a little snack. They are bite-sized and can be eaten right out of the bag or dipped into your favorite dip! This is healthy snack that I look forward to snacking on at parties and family gatherings. My kids love them, too!

Circle B Ranch Big John's Snack Sticks Review

Hello! Welcome to my blog, A Sampling Bee! Today, I am sharing my review on Circle B Ranch's Big John's delicious Snack Sticks. Whenever were going on a long trip, I always have either snack sticks or jerky in my bag. Something about these snacks just screams "road trip." I love taking Circle B Ranch's pork sticks along for the ride because I know that they are healthy. And, the whole family loves them! What's not to love about a snack stick that is low in carbs, low in calories and high in protein?

Big John's Snack Sticks come in 3 yummy pork flavors:  Hawaiian, Bacon and Jalapeno Bacon. Circle B Ranch uses only natural ingredients in their product. This means that they are nitrite-free, nitrate-free, free from red dyes, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup and sodium benzoate. Big John's Snack Sticks are gluten-free, MSG free, dairy-free and free from antibiotics and hormones. Ingredients in them are minimal. The sticks are stuffed into a regenerated collagen casing.

Circle B Ranch has a wide variety of pork products. See what they have to offer HERE.

My Thoughts

I absolutely love these pork sticks! My favorite flavor being the bacon. These sticks are so flavorful and I am amazed by how juicy and moist they are. They are easy to eat and chew. Much softer than I expected. The beef sticks are not over salty and the spices are just right. The individual packaging makes them portable. I love throwing a few of them into my purse! They give me a healthy energy boost in between meals. As a kid, I loved Slim Jims. After I found out how they were made, I never bought them again. Thanks to Circle B Ranch, I can now enjoy beef sticks again!
