Real Handful Snacks – Review & Giveaway

I first tried a sample of Real Handful snacks earlier this month at the Blog On MSI conference, I tried Mochaccino and Banoffee mixes which were both delicious so I was delighted when the brand got in touch and asked if I would like to try one of their hand packed ration boxes and an extra one to offer as a prize to one of my lovely readers.

Real Handful are a healthier impulse snack, they come in a variety of flavours and contain a mix of the best quality dried fruits, whole nuts and seeds with added ingredients like natural flavours, chocolate and yoghurt. Not only are they tasty and delicious they are ideal as an on the go snack or an afternoon pick me up when you need a little extra fuel.


The ration box I tried contained the following flavours:

Strawberries & Cream – A Summer time blend of juicy strawberry flavoured raisins, strawberries, cranberries, white chocolate chunks and cashews.

Blood Orange & Dark Chocolate – A fabulous blend of blood orange flavoured sultanas, orange flavoured cranberries, dark chocolate and peanuts.

Blueberry Blitz – A vibrant blend of blueberries, blueberry flavoured cranberries, jumbo flame raisins and whole cashews.

Mixed Berry Crunch – A very berry blend of blueberry yoghurt raisins, strawberries, cranberries and whole Almonds.


My favourite flavour is the Blueberry Blitz the combination of flavours and the chunky cashews taste so delicious, Daisy tried the snacks with me and she loved the Mixed Berry Crunch especially the blueberry yoghurt raisins, we shared a bag as an afternoon snack as the portions are really generous.

I’m really impressed with the quality of the ingredients, everything tasted as described and the dried fruit was so juicy and all the combinations I tried blended so well together.
