Another month, another SourcedBox! This months sourced box contains a variety of healthy snacks perfect for taking on picnics, carrying in your bag whilst out on a trip or if your like me to have on your breaks at work!

Soffle's Rosemary and Thyme Pitta Chips | 5.5syns per bag

These are a perfect accompaniment for dipping into your favourite dip or to add to an afternoon picnic. I shall be having mine on 2 seperate occasions with a homemade syn free houmous to save on my syn allowance.

The Giving Tree Strawberry Crisps | 3.5syns per 18g

I've heard of this brand before but never adventured to try them! I love the idea of eating a fruit in the form of a crisp I feel a little left out when everyone else is eating an actual packet of crisps and I have to sit out.. 

Virtue Sparkling Energy Water Lemon and Lime | Synfree!!

This sparkling energy water is to replenish your energy with its added caffeine, vitamins and ginseng extract. The flavour was very bland for a lemon and lime drink but it was refreshing to have whilst on a late break at work.

Clearspring Chilli Roasted Nuts | 6.5syns per 30g bag

Working at M&S, we sell a few Clearspring products within the ambient oriental section but I never knew they sold nuts and snacks! I love the Walkers Sensations Chilli Nuts so to have these an alternative has made me happy! 

SAF Raw Beetroot and Horseradish Activated Crackers | 11syns per 44g tube

These little crackers are just a little over 1 syn each but are great for an afternoon nibble with cottage cheese and crudités.

The website for this company is currently under reconstruction but you can buy them from online retailers.

Wild Trail Seed and Nut Bar | 9syns per 46g bar

I love Wild Trails bars and use to eat them often before starting Slimming World. This is one of the lowest bars in this months box and is handy to have in your bag for on the go.

The Tiger Nut Company Cocoa Dusted Tiger Nuts | Unsure on the syns for these

Upon reading on what tiger nuts were, I was intrigued to see these have extra nutritional value compared to other nuts as they are considered a vegetable! My overall thought after trying these wasn't good. They were very drying when eaten on their own but I think with them sprinkled over yogurt, it might make a difference.

Couldn't find the company website

BodyMe Raw Cacao Orange Protein Bar | 13syns per bar

I LOVE protein bars and to get one that's chocolate orange is amazing! Like the other bars in this box then syns are high but I find that if you've had a Synfree day why not have that treat of yummy goodness! I'm looking forward to trying this in the next couple of days!!

Rhythm 108 Lemon and Ginger Biscuits | 6.5syns per 2 biscuits 

These biscuits are great to dip in your tea, coffee or even crumbled with yogurt to create a mini cheesecake inspired dessert. 

The Living Food Kitchen Inca Berry and Pumpkin Seed Coconut Flapjack | 14syns

These flapjacks come in 3 flavoursome flavours and are dairy free as well as being gluten free! I love flapjacks and prefer to have them as an occasional treat. The syns are pretty high on this bar but halved then crumbled onto of your favourite yogurt and fruit will add that extra crunch to any dessert or treat.

The Good Guru Good Berries Powder | 1syn per 8g serving

This little sachet of powder has lots of goodness that can be added to smoothies, cereal, yogurt or porridge. I will be adding this to either a tub of quark to added extra flavour or to my morning porridge for that extra goodness! 

I hope you enjoy my review of Julys SourcedBox and every month I am going to continue to review these boxes. Leave your comments and I look forward to reading them :)
