Our latest box of goodies arrived the other week from Degustabox and they have been very popular. Hubby is on a diet at the moment and the Hartley’s 10 Cal jelly pots were just the thing for him. He also liked the Fruit in Jelly pots as they were also diet friendly. Another product receiving the low cal thumbs up was Db’s Discoveries Nothing But range. They are healthy, freeze-dried fruit and vegetable snacks and they are all under 80 calories. Continuing on the healthy theme I have been eating Nutribix Gold and Grains in the mornings as my cereal. it tastes a bit like Weetabix, but it’s got interesting and tasty things added like coconut, honey and sorghum. I think for me it’s still a bit too much like Weetabix to be my cereal of choice, but it’s made a pleasant change. Beloved Dates bars are 100% natural and have no added sugar. They are very nice and full of lots of healthy goodies.
Continuing with the snacks, we’ve enjoyed Ritz Crisp and Thin which are a new oven-baked potato snack and they are very moreish. The London Crisp Company have some great tasting crisp and the sea salt and malt vinegar flavour has been a hit. On the subject of vinegar we were pleased to see Sarsons Malt Vinegar in there. This is a new limited edition bottle featuring the ‘Fish and Chip’ characters created by artist Paul Thurlby. On a sweeter note, Mr Kipling’s Exceeding Good Slices lived up to their name with tasty ingredients like dark chocolate chips and coconut. Diving chocolate was simply divine. I have a bit of a soft spot for caramel and their Caramel bars were wonderful.
On the drinks side we’ve tried VitHit which is a juice based soft drink with 1000% of the recommended daily allowance of 8 different vitamins. Good for the teeth and the waistline too as there is no added sugar and there are fewer than 35 calories in a bottle.J2O have developed a Spritz range which is just the refreshing drink for the summer ahead. This would be a nice drink to serve to non-drinkers or drivers when others are having something fizzy.
