Okay, before I get started, I just want to point out how lovely the weather is! Is it nice and sunny where you are? Because it definitely is here in Cornwall and it’s really starting to feel like summer and is inspiring me to do more summer activities and blog posts.
Today’s blog post, as you can see by the title, is a review on July’s Sourced Box. I love the whole concept of Sourced Box. If you don’t know what Sourced Box is, it was co-founded by youtubers Marcus Butler and Niomi Smart. it is basically a monthly box that you can buy, which includes around 10 different healthy, vegan food and drink. I am not vegan, but I bought this as a one-off box, to try and see what I liked. Also I’m trying to eat healthier. The box comes with a range of different snacks, and I payed around £20 for mine as it was one-off, but they do some great deals! I do still think this is pricey and not many people can afford it, but I thought it was worth it.
So, enough with the rambling. Now, I’ll tell you about July’s contents.
Lemon&Ginger Tea Biscuits: If you follow my Instagram, you will have seen my raving about these delicious biscuits. I really enjoyed these. The lemon definitely overpowered the ginger, but hints still came through and they were just so yummy and went perfectly with a cup of tea.
Seed and Nut Bar: This product only contained 5 healthy ingredients, which I thought was so good, and the taste of this is lovely, but there is a very strong nut taste (obviously).
Peach Crisps: I wasn’t too sure on these as they were a bit odd. Initially, you have a strong peach taste, but there is an after taste of a wafer? I did like them, but couldn’t eat too many, as they were very sweet.
Inca Berry and Pumpkin Seed Flapjack: Okay, I loved this. The fact that this is healthy and can still taste so good is amazing! The combination of coconut and burst of fruity flavour is lovely, and it’s definitely one of my favourites! I think you all should try this one!
Lemon&Lime Energy Drink: I was quite disappointed with this drink as when I opened it, it smelt so strong and fresh, but the taste didn’t live up to the smell. I’m not a fan of plain sparkling water, which this tasted a lot like. However, I really liked how they tried to make an energy drink healthy.
Tamari Roasted Soya with Chilli: I love spicy foods, but these weren’t that spicy, although some of my family disagreed with me. I snacked on these whilst blogging and drawing, and the packet came with so many in that they lasted so long, which was really good.
Cacao dusted Tiger Nuts: I really didn’t like these. It was a strange texture and taste, as it mixed sweet and savoury. I liked how they tried to be different and original, but I wasn’t a fan.
Rosemary&Thyme Pitta Chips: These are a perfect snack for at home or on the go! They had a lovely, herby taste, which I enjoyed on their own, but I’m sure would be lovely with other foods too.
Beetroot&Horseradish Activated Crackers: I did like these, but as they had a strong taste, I couldn’t eat many as one time. They were a nice, different side to snacks and being healthy.
Raw Cacao Orange Protein Bar: This was absolutely gorgeous! Definitely my favourite. It tasted just like chocolate orange, but in bar form and healthy! How do you get better than that? I did have to have a drink whilst eating it because it did dry my mouth a little, but I really liked it!
So, overall I highly recommend Sourced Box and it’s products! Some of these, I definitely want to repurchase. I would definitely want to repurchase Sourced Box itself, however as the price is quite high, I think I will have to wait a few months before being able to do this, which is very unfortunate. Overall, it was a great thing to try and I’m so glad I did. If any of you have tried it, let me know what you think in the comments.
