Honest Snack Box Review
Just to let you know, this post was written before I went fully paleo to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding.
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?
