October Treat Trunk Healthy Snack Box

No tricks with our October box – only treats 🍫🎃

There were 3 items that contained gluten in the box this month which was the peanut butter granola and the 2 Indie Bay pretzel bites, so we switched these out for our gluten free subscribers this month.

Let us know in the comments which your favourite was or which snack you’d like to see make a return! 💚

We Made – Lemonade
A refreshingly zesty still lemonade made with real fruit, no refined sugar and no artificial nonsense!

We Made Drinks began whilst Alex, Pat & Angus were studying at the University of Southampton. In the final year of their business degrees, they were set the task of starting a business for one of their modules. After much discussion, they decided to have a go at making refreshing lemonade in their student house on Granby Grove.

They bought all the ingredients, mixed up a batch, bottled their lemonade and pitched up a stall on the University campus. The first batch of 160 bottles were a huge hit and sold out in just a few hours! Their zesty lemonade received some great feedback, leaving them with only one option when they graduated – to continue making lemonade!

A lot has happened since they made their first batch; they’ve evolved into a family run business based in Buckinghamshire, and have added three more flavours.

As they started at University, their ‘Make It Big’ scheme aims to run events for other young entrepreneurs and start-ups to network and help their ideas grow.

Pearls of Samarkand – Apricot Kernels
These wild organic apricots kernels are:

  • 100% natural
  • low levels of amygdalin
  • exclusively selected
  • Nature’s finest
  • in Fairtrade Quality
  • gently processed and dried
  • vegan and in raw food quality

Pearl’s of Samarkand’s organic Fairtrade apricot kernels are distinctively fruity, yet nutty too. They are very popular as an alternative to almonds and can be eaten raw.

Apricot kernels are a good source of minerals and vitamins, primarily B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorous and iron.

Apricot kernels are similar in appearance, colour, shape and texture to almonds, but are crunchier, fruitier and more aromatic, as they were previously surrounded by a fruit.

Only very sweet apricots are used for sweet apricot kernels. This ensures that amygdalin levels are low and the kernels can be eaten without any concerns.

The Fairtrade organic apricot kernels are sourced exclusively from Uzbekistan/Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and Fairtrade products, and are cultivated by the Fairtrade farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.

After being carefully harvested, the apricots are washed, halved and pitted. The shell of the kernel is cracked open and the actual apricot kernel is gently sun-dried. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.

The apricots are pressure treated and laser sorted in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic apricot kernels are checked individually to make sure they contain no impurities.

Organic ingredients: Sweet apricot kernels

EFSA recommends a consumption of not more than 1 – 2 apricot kernels per day.

Forever a chocolate lover, in 2012 the seed for Raw Halo was planted after Founder Meg reduced the sugar in her diet. She’s always believed in a little everyday indulgence, but over the years had become more mindful about what goes into her food.

The idea started as a simple wish: to pick up a chocolate bar, count the ingredients on one hand, understand all of them, and for the chocolate to taste delicious. She couldn’t find that bar though, so decided to make her own!

She began with a simple blend of raw cacao and a touch of coconut sugar, which was an instant hit with friends and family. They encouraged her to dream big… and she did. In 2014, she started Raw Halo, making organic raw chocolate from ethically-sourced, plant-based ingredients, with shine, snap and smoothness in every bite.

Producing small batches from her home kitchen and delivering bars by hand to local, organic stores; the business quickly proved to be a winner and soon she needed an extra pair of hands. Her partner, Jonathan joined the team and together they now run Raw Halo.
