I love food. In fact, a large proportion of my wages goes on trying out new food. Since losing a lot of weight I vowed that I would look for food that is equally as scrumptious as it is nutritious and if I was going to eat something with more calories than I would like to think about, it has to be worth it. Every month I receive subscription boxes from the Degustabox and Graze - both of which I look forward to and thoroughly enjoy, but lately I've been getting a little bit bored of the same old packages coming through my door. When 'The Handmade Treat Company' asked me if I would like to review one of their boxes, I knew that it would be a great chance to try something different and potentially find a monthly box to subscribe to.
The Handmade Treat Company are the UK's first handmade treat box, delivering fresh, healthy handmade surprises straight to your door. These boxes are £9.99 a month including postage and the majority of their items are vegetarian. My box this month came with: A bag of Joseph's Caramel and Sea Salt popcorn, Lemon Sherbet sweeties, Dark chocolate buttons, Rawcha - 100% Vegan Matcha bar, a Date and Walnut bar and a vegan lip balm. Popcorn is one of my weaknesses and my husband always goes for salted, it was nice to have a bag of sweet popcorn all to myself. The lemon sherbet sweets were a delight - so tangy and sweet, perfect for a midday sugar fix. I loved the dark chocolate buttons even though I'm not a big fan of dark chocolate and the Date and Walnut bar was lovely, even though I don't usually like dates. I admit I didn't like the Rawcha bar, but I don't really like those type of products in general, however it was nice to see a vegan, gluten free product thrown into the mix.
Another thing I really liked about this box was the added little extra of a recipe card so you can try make a handmade treat of your own. I'm trying to get into baking and I love that this is a vegan recipe as the doctors have told me I should try to avoid dairy when I can. Overall, I really do love this little box and I will be considering this box when I renew my subscriptions in the New Year. For those who love to snack and want to try something healthy as well as yummy, this box is definitely worth a try.
