November's SourcedBoxer of the month is Silke, a 20 year old university student who has a huge vegan sweet tooth, absolutely loves breakfast and revels in all things Christmassy.
Why did you sign up to SourcedBox?
I discovered SourcedBox through Niomi's YouTube channel last Christmas. I was trying to put together my Christmas wish-list and had absolutely no inspiration, so when I came across SourcedBox it seemed like the perfect gift. I just love the idea of new, healthy vegan snacks being delivered right to your door - it feels like Christmas every month!
What's your snacking style? Are you an 11am pre-luncher or a 4pm slump-banisher?
Both! But I do prefer 11am snacks, it's like dessert after breakfast.
How does SourcedBox help you to lead a happy and healthy life?
SourcedBox helps me to discover new snack brands, inspiring me to make healthy, exciting breakfasts. It's nice to know that I always have healthy snacks lying around for when I'm in a hurry or have a busy day at uni. When I have a new snack waiting for me in my backpack to eat in between lectures, it makes those long days at uni that bit more exciting.
What has been your favourite snack so far?
My top pick would have to be last year's SourcedBox Christmas Spice Bar. It was the perfect combination of two of my great loves: Christmas and chocolate.
What were your top 3 picks from November's box and why?
- Salted Caramel Swayzee by Loving Earth – Firstly, it's chocolate! Secondly, I love the way they only use healthy, natural ingredients to make this absolutely divine bar.
- Immunitea by T Plus – I always love the tea sachets in my box! I love tea, so this way I can discover new and tasty teas each month.
- Sweet 'n' Smokin' chickpea puffs by HIPPEAS – If it wasn't obvious by now, I have a huge sweet tooth. These chickpea puffs reminded me of how extremely yummy savoury snacks can be.
'Tis the season, what's your favourite festive snack?
How could I not answer that question with chocolate? Everything chocolatey: brownies, chocolate banana bread, chocolate hazelnut cookies, ... the list goes on. However, cinnamon or pumpkin spice cookies seems to be my go-to this season as well.
