When I was asked to review the Treat Trunk I jumped at the chance. We have a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter who is the snack queen! She’ll happily graze all day, but put a plate of food in front of her that resembles a nutritional meal and she’ll turn her nose up at it! So after months of throwing these meals in the bin, I now try and focus on getting as much goodness into her via her snacks as I can. But it’s hard work – and there’s only so many packets of raisins she’ll have. So we gave the Treat Trunk ago and we were impressed!
Treat Trunk is a brand new subscription box filled with healthy snacks for all the family to enjoy together. It’s the only healthy subscription snack box in the UK created for both children and parents. You can sign up to receive the Treat Trunk on a monthly or quarterly basis, or even as a one off Gift Treat Trunk and it gets delivered direct to your door. The Trunks contain a mixture of snacks for all the family, some especially designed for kids, and some chosen specifically with parents in mind. Their products are dairy-free, vegan, with no nasty additives, and sugar sensible. Many of the products also come in recyclable or biodegradable packaging and each brand’s ethics are taken into consideration before going in the Trunk.
Our Treat Trunk arrived a few weeks ago and I must say I was pleasantly surprised with how much you got. The packaging was fab – designed to actually look like a trunk – and it got me and my little girl really excited to see what was inside! A little letter, addressed to us all was a lovely little touch and gave a brief description of what was included in our Treat Trunk (and there wasn’t a box of raisins in sight!) There were lots of brands I was familiar with including BEAR and Nakd. There was also a lot of things I’d never heard of and if I’m being really honest there were a few things in there I would never have picked up if I’d seen it in the supermarket. But this is one of the many things I love about the Treat Trunk – you try things you’d never usually dream of!
At around 3pm (prime snacking time!) on the day the trunk arrive my little one got a little peckish and insisted she wanted some chocolate! But armed with my Treat Trunk I was able to offer up a cacao and orange organic raw brownie. It claimed to taste just like chocolate orange. This is exactly the thing I would never consider trying – how could a vegan organic raw brownie taste anything like chocolate? Obviously for the purposes of this review I had to have a little taste myself. And guess what Mumblers… it tastes just like a flamin’ chocolate orange!! It was gorgeous and my daughter loved it too. And an added bonus after she’d finished she, and my sofa were not covered in chocolate, which is what usually happens! Coupled with the fact that she wasn’t swinging from the rooftops in a sugar rush frenzy for the next twenty minutes, we were already sold on the Treat Trunk.
The next day we were off to see my family in the Midlands, which meant a two-hour plus car journey – so that meant more snacks! A delicious cereal bar saved a meltdown on the M1. My daughter and her cousin loved the Super Sour Bears Yo Yo’s. In fact, everything we’ve tried so far has got big thumbs up from us all! We’ve all enjoyed the pear crisps (something I never new existed) and hubby been a big fan of the Nakd bars, especially the salted caramel ones. We’ve had Berry Superbars that have saved us from full on meltdowns in the supermarkets and some rather delicious organic salt and vinegar flavoured chickpea puffs that have curbed our hunger on the train to York.
We’ve still got a fair few things to get through including some yummy flavoured teas and some interesting sounding lime pepper savoury porridge! All-in-all we’ve loved the Treat Trunk, loads of variety and lots of things I would never think of trying which have pleasantly surprised us all! A great idea that’s taken the stress out of trying to feed my family something healthy they’ll actually enjoy!

Disclaimer: We received a free Treat Trunk for the purposes of this review. We did remind Trunk Treat that we can’t be “bought” so if they sent us a box load of tasteless, weird “healthy” snacks that we wouldn’t be willing to tell porkie pies to our readers. Fortunately this potentially awkward situation never arose as the contents were splendid! (#phew) We are extremely happy to recommend this fantastic company and their delicious boxes.
