SlimFast VoxBox Review

I was fortunate enough to receive a SlimFast VoxBox from Influenster. I had to wait a little while to test out all of the products due to my strict diet, but I was finally able to open the box and trial the products to give them an honest review.

The box contained four products, which surprised me. When I think of SlimFast, I think of meal replacement shakes. I didn't realize they had other great products! The VoxBox included: 

1 - Vanilla Creme Protein Shake
1 - 100 Calorie Snack: Sour Cream & Onion Baked Crisps
1 - 100 Calorie Cinnamon Swirl crisps
1 - Slim Fast Dark Chocolate Meal Replacement Bar

The first two products I trailed were the 100 calorie snacks. However, since I am on such a strict diet, I only tried a couple of pieces from each bag. Unfortunately, these two products have too many carbs for me to enjoy them fully!

The Sour Cream & Onion Baked Crisps were actually pretty good. They were nice and crispy, dissolved quickly in your mouth and left a nice flavor of sour cream & onion on my tongue. Before surgery, I could definitely see myself enjoy these as a snack. The nutritional facts are as follows:

Calories: 100
Total Fat: 2.5g
Total Carbs: 19g
Sugars: 1g
Protein: 2g

Sadly, not enough protein and too many carbs for this chick. I would have loved to finish the 1oz serving though!

Getting silly with the bag of chips...

The second product I tried were the cinnamon swirl crisps. Perhaps, because I haven't been allowed anything sweet in a long time, but this bag was harder to put down than the first!! They were nice and crispy, dissolved in my mouth and left a delicious cinnamon taste on my tongue. Seriously, a yummy 100 calorie snack. Nutrition facts:

Calories: 100
Total Fat: 3g
Total Carbs: 20g
Sugars: 7g
Protein: 3g

Unfortunately, the carbs and sugars killed this one for me. Again, too many for this chick to consume so only a couple of bites and I was down. However, I would recommend this snack to people. Super yummy.
If only I could eat you delicious things...

The third item I tried was the Vanilla Cream protein shake. Overall, the shake was good. It had a nice sweet taste and it didn't leave the gross after taste that most protein shake tend to leave. In general, I don't tend to enjoy vanilla shakes because they are too sweet tasting and this one is similar. I can drink it a little bit at a time, but I can't drink a whole shake in one sitting. 

Calories: 180
Total Fat: 9g
Total Carbs: 6g
Sugars: 1g
Protein: 20g

The fourth product I received was a protein bar...which I have been too afraid to try. With my new pouch, I was sure I would be able to digest this one so unfortunately, I can not give an honest review of this product. Plus the carb content was way too high for me right now and the protein too low.

Calories: 190
Total Fat: 10g
Total Carbs: 20g
Sugars: 9g
Protein: 10g

Overall, I feel SlimFast has developed some strong products for those looking to cut calories. For a bariatric patient, most of the products won't work but that isn't unusual. 

Disclaimer: I received these products free from Influenster in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for this post.

  1. I LOVE Slim-Fast, I drink the shakes every day. I have the bottles for on-the-go and the powder so I can make my own with milk. The bars are hands down better than any other bars on the market.
