I think my husband was a little upset because there wasn’t any traditional style jerky in the box. Instead, there was a package of shredded machaca jerky along with a yummy recipe for using it in a keto-friendly Mexican breakfast scramble.
Included in the box were some old favorites and a few new items to try. I can honestly say that I loved every product, although there is one item that isn’t gluten-free. However, it’s a product that used to be a regular for me when I got started with low carb eating.

Let’s take a closer look at each product in the box!
Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette – Retail $7.95
Primal Kitchen products have all been amazing so I was excited to try the Greek vinaigrette dressing included in the August 2016 Keto Krate. In fact, I cracked open the bottle the same day!
I had no idea that the Primal Kitchen brand was founded my Mark Sisson of MarksDailyApple.com. Did you? Anyway, it’s a great place to go for information about a Paleo and Keto diet.
This tasty vinaigrette dressing is perfect for any salad. It’s also great to use as a marinade. I eat lots of salad, and I love that this vinaigrette has negligible carbs. It’s Whole30 approved and absolutely delicious!
I’m thinking I may need to stock up on this delicious dressing. The Keto Krate included a $1.00 off coupon as well as a 10% discount code to use at PrimalKitchen.com. I haven’t seen the Primal Kitchen brand sold in any of my local grocery stores, so I may have to take a drive to some shops near the bigger cities. But, ordering online from Amazon is always an option.
People’s Choice Machaca Jerky – Retail $6.00
The jerky included in this month’s Keto Krate is a finely shredded Machaca jerky. It’s perfect for mixing into your favorite low carb dishes.
I went ahead and tried the recipe for Mexican scrambled eggs that was included with the jerky. Along with the shredded jerky, you add onion, tomatoes, jalapeno, cheddar cheese and avocado into the eggs. It was super yummy!
The jerky is made with 100% USA beef and has zero sugar and carbs. There’s also no additives, preservatives, MSG, or gluten. It’s a terrific ingredient to add into a paleo keto diet.
Keto Krate subscribers were given a 15% off discount code to use at PeoplesChoiceBeefJerky.com for more. It’s a pretty good jerky at a reasonable price so I’ll probably be buying more. You can also find this shredded jerky on Amazon. And, if you really love it, you can buy it in a five pound tub!
Good Dee’s Chocolate Brownies Mix – Retail $11.99
Baking mixes are a favorite of mine. I just wish there were more low carb options. When will the mainstream companies realize that we want these in regular supermarkets?
If you are craving some fudgy low carb brownies that are fool-proof, you’ll love the Good Dee’s brownie mix. This amazing low carb mix is gluten-free and each serving has only 1g net carb.
Prefer cake-like brownies instead? No problem! With this mix, there’s an option to make either fudge-like brownies or cake-like ones. I, of course, chose to make the fudgy ones. And, they were so good! I had a hard time eating just a single serving.
There’s a 20% off coupon included in the August 2016 Keto Krate to use at Good-Dees.MyShopify.com for more. I was happy to see that this delicious low carb brownie mix is also available on Amazon Prime. So, be sure to check this one out!
Protings Protein Chips – Retail $2.00 Each
I was glad to see a repeat of the Protings Protein Chips in the August 2016 Keto Krate box. These yummy low carb chips were also included in the March shipment.
These chips really satisfy the need for something salty and crispy. The Zesty Nacho flavor is my favorite, but the Toasted Sea Salt flavor is a good chip to use for dipping.
I love that these low carb chips really fill me up between meals. So, they are a great snack to have available at work. There’s a 15% off discount code included so I may have to stock up at Protings.com for more! You can also grab some of these chips on Amazon Prime.
B-Up Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Bar – Retail $2.59
Have you tried the B-Up protein bars? This was my first introduction to them. There’s only 2 grams of sugar in each tasty bar. One of the sweeteners used is Isomalto-oligosaccharide (aka IMO), a prebiotic vegetable fiber.
I thought the bar was pretty tasty. It’s more of a treat for me than a wholesome snack. But, certainly something that you can have every once in a while.
La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortillas – Retail $5.99
Although there are a lot of recipes for low carb tortillas, I still have not made my own. When I first moved to this way of eating, the tortillas made by La Torilla Factory were my favorite. Since they aren’t gluten-free, I haven’t bought them in years.
I’ll probably share these tortillas with my family. My older daughter loves quesadillas and I used to make them for her with this brand of tortillas. She never knew that they were low carb. Pretty sneaky, huh?
I also used to make my Mexican chicken lasagna recipe with these tortillas. I may have to drag that recipe out of the archives and make it again!
No discount coupon was included. But, it’s pretty economical to buy a five pack of these off Amazon.
What did you think of the products featured in the August 2016 Keto Krate box? Are they worth the $34.95 price? The retail value of the products in the box is $38.52 and that’s not including any shipping costs. Separate shipping could cost $15 or more if purchased them individually. And, Keto Krate saves it’s subscribers money with the included discount codes.
I still think Keto Krate is a great value for the convenience of having low carb products automatically delivered each month. My subscription will continue.
