Your little something extra
This June we present to you these melt in your mouth chocolate crunchy balls of perfection with 14 grams of protein per bag.
Knack Snacks was born out of one woman’s quest for a better snack. The founder, Brittany Boeckle, struggled to find a healthy option that didn’t compromise on taste or quality. So, she set out to create a better-for-you version of a beloved childhood favorite: the Malteser. After months of testing the Crunchy Protein Balls were born!
Committed to zero food waste and using only sustainable and socially responsible cocoa suppliers. The snacks are also gluten-free and made without artificial ingredients (No Nasties!)

It’s time to meet your maker
How long has your brand been going/ is it full time or do you do other things?
AromaHoliday started in 2015, solely designed, made, and run by me. I’m a Travel lover, a proud farther, family man, helped by my Wife who supports by Working for a Commercial Bank. Once a week, I care for a young guy who has Cerebral Palsy, we became strong friends during our time together, and enjoy many laughs along the way.
Where in the UK are you based and what space do you use for your ‘workshop’?
We operate within the beautiful Peak District, near Sheffield South Yorkshire. Our workshop started in the garage like so many others, we now occupy a small unit where all our products are made by hand.
What inspired you to start making candles? Do you have a passion that has been embedded in your brand?
The flash of inspiration came about while looking for a scented candle, as a gift for my wife. Despite being surrounded by a host of them in Store, I could not find any that personally connected with me or the person I was buying it for! So, I went home empty handed but importantly, with an idea buzzing in his head…What if he could create a scented product that would remind people of their travels?
Ever since leaving School in the late 80’s I have had a love for Travel, people, and different cultures. In 2006, when my son was only a toddler, we embarked on a World adventure to America, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, and Hong Kong. This life changing globetrotting trip, alongside my little partner in crime, provided the inspiration behind the many AromaHoliday scented locations we have today.
What do you love about our featured scent?
All our fragrances are unique, thought up by me and formulated solely for AromaHoliday in the U.K… You will not find them anywhere else!
The featured scent represents a warm African bush lodge, relaxing as the sun disappears over the savannah, it’s about far more than just what you see, it’s about what you smell too! An overindulgent seductive fragrance, opening with soft peach and luscious plum, leading to the heart of peonies, dark orchid and violet, all supported by a base of a soft leather, benzoin, and rich patchouli.
There are so many scents you can choose to make… How do you go about choosing for your collection?
I chose the extensive range of 28 destination scents, based on all the fabulous places, I’ve been fortunate to visit over the years. With help from memory and research, I hope to spark everyone’s celebratory travel memories!
What has been your proudest and funniest moment since starting out?
The funniest and proudest moments are the numerous Travel Candle photos sent in by customers from all over the World. Taken on holiday, they have either had our candles bought as a Gift placing them in the mood before their trip or by themselves, as a Me-to-Me present! Seems now to be some kind of competition online, having had photos of our Travel Candle Tins outside the Taj Mahal (Agra, India), Bangkok (Thailand), Heraklion (Crete), Maui (Hawaii), Auckland bush walk (New Zealand) and not forgetting the American tourists, who took one to Wimbledon Centre Court??? Fab and Funny!
Do you have any specific ambitions or goals for AromaHoliday?
I would like the AromaHoliday “World of Scents” Brand to become known as an instantly recognisable Global Gift shopping experience. The perfect Travel memory home presents, bringing past or indeed future adventures alive.
I have always pictured AromaHoliday as a destination within Duty-Free lounges of the World. We recently had early-stage enquiries to do so, but this requires large investment and is a goal to work towards for future…unless anyone wishes to Offer Now???
Do you have any charitable or environmental partnerships we should know about to share?
Yes, Proud Sponsors of ‘TOMORROW’S FOREST UK’, with over 9 million Trees Planted so far!
The AromaHoliday “Buy Me… Plant A Tree” promise on all our products, helps Offset Carbon Emissions for future generations to come…The more we Sell, the more we will be plant biodiversity habitats!
Is there anything that you believe makes your brand different or stand out?
AromaHoliday creates the most extensive range of Scented travel destinations in the World. Home fragrance that celebrates all our special destination memories… “Life’s a journey, so why not remember it!”
Our Gifts are ideal to relive city-break engagements, tropical weddings, exotic Honeymoons, anniversary date nights, or those family reunions abroad…all year round.
Traditionally made in the U.K. with Sustainable Non-GM Soy Waxes, Vegan Friendly, No Colourants or Dyes, Cruelty-Free, Paraben-Free, Cotton Wicks, Sugar Cane Bioplastic Bottles, all wrapped up within Recyclable Packaging.
Are there any plans for new products or news over the next few months?
We plan to extend our fresh spicy Thai inspired Hand Care range, by launching another two of our current scents and will probably be based on one Floral and Citrus bestselling locations. Recently I have been approached by several European Travel Tour companies, looking to use AromaHoliday products as thankyou marketing presents…we hope will all raise brand awareness.
That is it June’s box revealed! We hope you love this month box as much as we do Iggy Boxers! This indulgent fragrance will transport you to a warm African bush lodge, as you relax and watch the sunset…
