We all get that 4pm slump after a busy day and we reach for a pick me up to get us through till dinnertime. With so many snacks out there, it’s hard to know which ones are the best, so we’ve (rather selflessly) eaten all the samples and compiled a list of our favourites. Happy snacking!
“Snack with intention” is their promise and how the founder, Stephanie, encourages us all to snack more mindfully. They believe positive nutrition starts in the mind: it’s all about changing behaviours, ONE BITE AT A TIME. Mindful Bites make premium nut butters and snacks blended with superfoods, created with health and indulgence in mind by foodies for foodies. All the ingredients were first filtered for their nutrient-density, impact on the sugar levels and also ethical sourcing in the supply chain. They then focused on putting together the best mix of tastes which would evoke indulgence, without ever adding any sugar or preservatives. Can’t choose a favourite flavour? Neither can we!

The California Walnut Commission, established in 1987, represents the California walnut industry, made up of over 4,000 growers and almost 100 handlers. Their goal is to educate consumers and buyers about the finest walnuts that come from the sun-kissed orchards of California – and to share the all-round deliciousness, health and wellness benefits, and versatility these mighty little nuts have to offer. Their strict quality regulations means these Walnuts are naturally sweeter than other varieties and make a delicious snack! We’ve been playing around with them in the kitchen, too… creating energy balls, trail mixes and granola.
