Honest Snack Box Review

So. The day before Valentine's Day my postman didn't turn up with dozens of red roses and sacks of cards from admirers. But he did knock the door and hand me a little cardboard box that had been sent by a company called Honest, filled with healthy snacks.

Our Honest Foods run a snack delivery service, where you pay a subscription and receive a box of snacks once a month. The box I received included some sweet and salty popcorn, some milk and dark chocolate, a pack of dried physalis berries and some Yerba Mate tea. There was also a Flaxseed bar, some shortbread and a pack of chilli and lime nuts and dried corn.

The foods were very good and of great quality - the nuts had a kick to them, thanks to the chilli - and you could taste the citrussy lime. The Yerba Mate was a real treat - infused with lemon and ginger - which made a refreshing and reviving cuppa. Shame there were only three teabags though, I'll be on the lookout for more of those.

The physalis berries were tart in flavour, tasting like a cross between a clementine and a lemon - they were handy to just dip into but I imagine they'd be good to top onto a cupcake (I know - I take a healthy treat and try and imagine it popped atop a swirly cupcake. There's no hope for me).

The only thing I wished though, when I found out that this was a monthly box, was that there was a bit more of everything. My children nabbed the bag of popcorn, and the chocolate treats were easily schnaffled away on the Friday afternoon. There was a lovely range of foods, but I just wanted a bit more.

Honest do have a really good website - friendly, chatty and easy to use - and you can add any extras you'd especially like to your regular monthly box, too. Healthy, all-British snack foods - a great idea. I mean you're less likely to nip to the shops and be tempted by chocolate bars if you have one of these at home in the cupboard. Now. Where do I get my hands on more of that Yerba Mate?
