Brands spotted

This week, we've spotted eggs made from chickpeas, a subscription service that sends curated snack selections to your home, and a moisturising hand sanitiser that's nicely scented (we've got more on that trend here, in case you missed it).

We also spotted Sparking Botanicals, a new soda brand from tea company Rishi Tea & Botanicals. The brand launched in May 2020 with a line of six sodas, all featuring flavours you might be more familiar seeing on a box of herbal tea, including dandelion, turmeric and saffron. The brand has since struck a distribution deal with Iris Nova, meaning its drinks can now be ordered (just like cans of Olipop and Dash Water) by text message.
