Cave Cravings Paleo Snacks Subscription Box Review

I recently agreed to sample some Paleo snacks from Cave Cravings.  If you aren’t familiar with them yet, Cave Cravings is a subscription box service that offers healthy, natural, and organic Paleo snacks, delivered monthly to your door. 

And I was quite eager to get into mine when I opened it and saw the contents.

Feb 7 Caveman Cravings Box 001

This box contained:
  1. 4 Caveman Cookies
  2. 2 Bearded Brothers Bars
  3. 2 Bite-sized samples of other Bearded Brothers Bars
  4. 2 packages of Coco-Roons, Vanilla Maple and Lemon Pie
  5. 2 packages of Sophia’s Survival Food Jerky Chews, Mild and Original
And an information card describing each item and listing their retail values.

The first item I sampled was the Caveman Cookies.

Feb 7 Caveman Cravings Box 003

It is a chewy and somewhat sticky cookie, just under 2 inches in diameter, made from almond meal, honey, raisins, walnuts and some tasty spices.  It is very similar to, but much sweeter, than one I make myself and I did like the chewy texture and spicy flavors.  If you like oatmeal raisin cookies, you would like this one.  I really like that they are individually packaged for convenience, portability, freshness, and portion control.  The Captain says ‘thumbs up’, too.

The full sized Bearded Brothers Bars are 2 oz. so I cut one in half and shared it with The Captain, to sample and enjoy with tea one afternoon.  The flavor … Radical Raspberry Lemon, and it was delicious.

Feb 7 Caveman Cravings Box 005

Feb 7 Caveman Cravings Box 006

It is made from organic figs, dates, sun butter, hemp seeds, raspberries, chia seeds, lemon extract, and sea salt.  Of course it’s delicious!  And I like the soft, chewy texture too.  Very much like a  … dare I say it…. LARABAR.  And very much like one you would make at home with similar ingredients. 

We also really liked the bite-size samples…those flavors were Colossal Coconut Mango, and Bodalicious Blueberry Vanilla.

Next up… Wonderfully Raw Mini Coco-Roons.  I am a big fan of coconut macaroons and was really wondering about these little guys.    Lemon is one of The Captain’s favorite flavors so we opted to sample them first.

Feb 18 Caveman Cravings cocoroons 001

The package weighs 2 oz. and there are 9 pieces inside.  The suggested serving size is 3 pieces… which doesn’t seem like very much.  But if you eat them slowly and savor each bite, 3 are quite enough.  They are so flavorful and packed with healthy coconut, almond meal, coconut oil and natural flavorings… nutrient dense ingredients that are filling and satisfying.

I have to admit I am saving the Vanilla Maple Mini Coco-Roons for a special occasion. And I just may eat them all myself!

It took us a while to get around to trying the Jerky Chews.  I haven’t eaten much jerky and was not sure I really would like them.  These are from Sophia’s Survival Foods and came in two flavors… Mild and Original. 

Feb 27 Cave Cravings Jerky 001

So far we have only sampled the Mild.

Feb 27 Cave Cravings Jerky 002

It is not like any other jerky I have ever had… it is softer, and drier, but still quite chewy like a jerky should be, I think. I could taste the lemon and the garlic in this jerky and was kind of sorry I had shared it, quite honestly.  But it is very filling and I am sure the whole 1 oz. bag really would have ended up being too much!  I am looking forward to trying the Original flavor soon.

All in all, I was really pleased with the selection of snacks in this Cave Cravings box.

If you are interested in Paleo snacks for you and your family, check them out.

Have you tried a subscription snack box service?  What do you think of them?


  1. This sounds good! I have tried Healthy Surprise but discontinued as we received a lot of flavored nuts, which none of my family is huge on. I like nuts, and so does dear hubby, but I can't go beyond lightly salted as I tend to opt for plain. Some of these sound yummy enough that I think my 6 yo would like. What do you think?

  2. I have never gotten one of these boxes, but I have had Sophia's Survival Food - I even made a video about the jerky - and LOVE IT!! :)

  3. I have only tried Stridebox and liked it, fun to get to try new things. All the things you got look really good. I may have to check this one out.
