Keto Subscription Box Review: Top 3 Low Carb Delivery Options Compared


I just opened all 3 keto boxes for this month live on Facebook, and as promised here is my comparison and review of the Top 3 Keto Box Subscriptions: Keto Krate, Keto Delivered, and The Keto Box

The boxes featured in this post from all three companies are February 2018 boxes, and they are no longer available. But they give you a great idea of what types of low carb foods to expect from a variety of Keto Box Subscriptions.

I included a list of these 26 products from all 3 boxes at the end too.;)

Keto Subscription Box Review

They each send you different products every month, but I’ll show you what types of products and the variety to expect – and the main differences between the top three companies you can choose from.

I’ve been working with Keto Krate the longest (over a year and a half), and work with all three companies on a sponsored and/or commission basis. I’ve been getting The Keto Box for about six months, and Keto Delivered for a little less than that, but I have a good feel for what to expect from all three at this point.

Why Keto Box Delivery?

What I love most about these low carb delivery options is that I don’t get to choose what will be in the box, so every month is a surprise package! It’s just plain FUN to get your box every month and open it up to discover what’s inside. πŸ™‚

I’ve found some of the BEST low carb foods and companies this way, that I never would have found or had the opportunity to try otherwise.

Many of which have become staples in my low carb kitchen!

You get a variety of products every single month, some are snacks or sample size and many (most actually) are full-sized products.

Most of these products you cannot get locally or in stores, so you save a lot of time & money compared to ordering individual products online (usually in larger quantities) and paying shipping at multiple sites.

Any of the Keto Box Delivery options are an incredible value too, considering the variety of expensive specialty products in each box.

The BEST part: it really helps you mix things up and keep from getting “food bored” when you have new low carb, keto friendly foods to use every month.

PLUS it’s a great way to reward yourself for staying on track. πŸ˜‰

Do I love everything that comes in every box? Not at all. The things I don’t like (for me: biltong, beef sticks, very spicy foods) I give to people that will, or donate them to the food bank. There are very few products I don’t like in these boxes though, and it’s encouraged me to try a lot of new things and interesting recipes!

Keto Subscription Box Review

The three keto box delivery companies I’m comparing are:

My TOP recommendation is Keto Krate, with The Keto Box pulling a VERY close second. Keto Delivered has it’s appeal, but hasn’t really “wow’d me” in 4 boxes straight in comparison to the other two. (But more on that below…)

Top 3 Low Carb Delivery Options Compared

All three keto box subscriptions are very similar in most ways.

They cost the same: $40/month (give or take a penny or a nickel).

They all deliver to the United States only. Keto Krate specifically says, “anywhere in the USA including Alaska, Hawaii, APO, and FPO destinations.”

You can cancel your subscription anytime – there’s no contract.

The Differences…

Keto Krate is always gluten-free, and is the only keto box delivery company that specifically states they have a Gluten Free Policy as well as no products with malitol. They also offer a satisfaction guarantee.

While I have not received products with gluten or malitol from the other two companies (to date), Keto Delivered says “we cannot guarantee all items are gluten free” – per the FAQ on their website.

This would be the ONLY reason that The Keto Box is not a straight up tie for my top recommendation, because most of my readers prefer gluten free products. Like I said, I haven’t received any products with gluten in the ingredients from them in at least 6 straight boxes, but it’s not stated either way on their website.

The Details

Keto Krate
(Use promo code FIVE2018 for $5 off your first box)

  • $34.95 + $5 flat rate to ship anywhere in the USA including Alaska, Hawaii, APO, and FPO destinations.
  • 8+ Keto snacks delivered every month
  • 5 net carbs per serving or less, gluten free, malitol free
  • $20+ in coupon savings in each box
  • No contracts, cancel anytime
  • 100% money back guarantee

Keto Krate used to say “6-9 products delivered every month” but I noticed they recently changed that to “8+ products.” They definitely packed their last box fuller than I’ve seen it before!

My recommendation for Keto Krate includes my hunch that they’ll continue to be a VERY competitive market leader in this space. πŸ˜‰

My recommendation does NOT include the fact that I could potentially earn more long-term recommending the other two companies;)… but outside of some growing pains last year, this company has really proven themselves.


Keto Delivered

  • 5-7 keto friendly products.
  • Supports small businesses
  • Artisan keto-friendly products

Video Unboxing: Keto Krate, Keto Delivered, The Keto Box

All three of these are February boxes, one from each of the three companies, to give you ideas of the variety of keto products and low carb foods to expect:

Again, these are February 2018 boxes. If you sign up now you’ll be getting the next box delivered the first week of next month, with totally different products in it.

My personal favorite is Keto Krate but The Keto Box has been just as good. Again, the only real difference so far in my experience is the quality food policy:

“Keto Krate is gluten free, maltitol free, aspartame free, and soy and sucralose conscious. Soy or sucralose will never be found high up on the ingredient list.”

Keto Delivered is always a good box and a great value. I do like their angle for artisan foods that are locally sourced. It just seems like less products than the other two. And maybe it’s the “odd” “artisan foods” that throw me off a little, lol – I’m never sure how to use those!

Maybe it’s just me. You can see the February box below, the January box here and here, and a video of the November & December boxes here (with more photos in the comments of that video).

If you already get Keto Krate and would like to add even more variety, or would like to try something new for awhile, I highly recommend The Keto Box as it’s been consistently GREAT and gluten free so far -since I’ve been getting it.

With all three of them, the boxes will be better some months than others, and some products in the boxes will be better than others. But it’s STILL the best way to discover fun new keto friendly low carb foods – without having to order them in bulk from multiple websites. πŸ˜‰

Most of the products you’ll get in these boxes aren’t available in local stores at all. They’re high quality specialty products, and usually very expensive to order online – making these low carb delivery options a GREAT value!

I hope this helps you make your decision on the best Keto Subscription Box for YOU…

I would love to hear which of these you have tried, or are getting now, and what you enjoy most about it – or which ones interest you and why.

I love the “food surprise” element – and knowing I always have something on the way to mix things up a little. πŸ™‚

As I sign off (hungry, mind you! -lol) I am second guessing my comparison of Keto Delivered. I’ve given you links & photos of their last four boxes as a good sampling though, so I would love to hear YOUR thoughts. My biggest concern is for those who are gluten-sensitive, although that’s not a major issue for me personally.

I really struggled with this comparison. They’re all three good. They’re all three the same price. They all vary and you never know what you’re going to get…

They are all an incredible value too, considering the variety of expensive specialty products in each box.

But if I were a betting woman I’d put my money on Keto Krate continuing to fight for the lead, although The Keto Box does bring some strong competition…

I would have a seriously hard time deciding which one to give up between Keto Krate and The Keto Box! πŸ˜‰


Keto Delivered is owned by Keto & CO by the way, which has some interesting products I’m going to review next month, so stay tuned for that.;)

p.s. If any of the foods in this month’s three keto boxes interested you, I have reviews and/or coupon codes for many of them. Or at the very least I’ve already researched the best places to order them online (best prices, free shipping, etc).

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts & experiences on any of these Low Carb Delivery options and/or keto friendly food products! Leave a comment and let’s discuss. πŸ˜‰

    Lynn, thank you for this. I’ve been intrigued by these services but somewhat leery of ordering. I don’t eat beef for religious reasons and I was afraid they’d be loaded with beef products. I see now that I’d only have to give away maybe one product in a typical month. I’m off now to use your discount code for the Keto Crate. Thanks again for that!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      You’re welcome, Anne. πŸ™‚ So many people have asked which box to choose, and I hesitated to recommend one over the other. I do love them all for different reasons.

      I rarely eat the meat products, but sometimes I do – like the kosher beef sticks and the Roam pork sticks. Otherwise I give those to my son, or my daughter & her friends like them for their hikes & road trips.

      Enjoy the Keto Krate!! It’s LOTS of fun. πŸ™‚ *cheers*

  3. cynthia says:

    HI Lynn hope your doing ok. I have a huge question. I’m confused with the carbs. I should just count carbs or net carbs? if your answer is net carbs, how can I see net carbs in myfitnesspal?
    Thank you
