I’m back to review some items that Slimfast and Influenster sent me for free. All of these reviews and opinions are my own.
When I received the little red package of goodies, there were four products inside. I was surprised they sent so many items, and excited to see what they were going to taste like. I’ve never used Slimfast before, so all of these products were brand new to me.
I started off with the 100 calorie drizzled crisps in the flavor cinnamon bun and they were SO good. I really loved these a lot. Not only could you snack on them from the bag, but the packaging also said you could put them in a bowl with milk and eat it like cereal. I thought that was clever, but I opted to eat them from the bag. For only being 100 calories I felt like I got a good amount of crisps to munch on, and I would definitely buy these if I saw them in the grocery store. I would give these snacks a 5/5! (so yummy!)
The next product is the Slimfast Advanced Nutrition Meal Replacement Shake in the flavor Vanilla Cream. At first glance I love the packaging, and how it shows you how much sugar, vitamins, and fiber is in the drink. For all those who can’t intake gluten or lactose, it doesn’t have any- so you can drink this product! I was a little nervous to taste it because I don’t normally go for “vanilla” when it comes to meal replacement shakes. I would rather opt for chocolate, but that didn’t stop me from trying out the drink. The first couple of sips were sweet, and actually good. I was surprised I liked the vanilla flavoring. But halfway through the drink, I was already getting sick of the flavor. It sort of tasted like cake batter to me, and for some people that isn’t a bad thing- but for myself, it was a bit too much. And that’s why I usually opt for chocolate flavoring for any kind of protein/meal replacement shakes because vanilla usually isn’t for me. But that isn’t Slimfast’s fault, as I didn’t get to choose the flavor of my shake. As for the statement on the bottle that it has a “4 hour hunger control” I would say it’s true. It does fill you up when you drink it. If I was at school, and in between classes I could see how this and a small snack would help me feel not as hungry. I give this product a 3.5/5. If I can get my hands on a chocolate flavored one, I would definitely give it another try.
The third product is the 100 calorie snack baked crisps in the flavor sour cream & onion. Once again, the packaging is great: showing you how much protein and fiber is in the baked crisps.I opened up the bag, and I really liked the texture of the chips. They reminded me of “pop chips”, as they are light and crunchy! So good!! I loved the flavor I got as well, but they also have it in mesquite bbq for those of you who aren’t a fan of sour cream & onion, which sounds so delicious. If you’re a chip lover, or crave chips as your “unhealthy” snack (like I do), I recommend these chips because they will fulfill your cravings & they are only 100 calories. I give this a 5/5.
The last snack is the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Meal Replacement Bar. It has 10g of protein, 5g of fiber, and 18 vitamins and minerals. It is gluten free, and contains peanuts and almonds. It has 190 calories for the full bar, and it is a great snack between meals. My favorite part about this bar was the nuts and the chocolate. My least favorite part was probably the sea salt taste. It’s easy to throw inside your backpack or purse when you’re on the go. I give this a 4/5.
As the new year is coming, I know many people are trying to get back into shape, and any little thing can help. I’m actually in the process of starting my fitness journey again. It’s good to know that there are healthy snacks out there! The baked crisps and drizzled crisps were my favorite from all of these products!
Would you try any of these products? Have you ever tried Slimfast products, and if you did- how was your experience? Thank you for stopping by!
