Garbanzo Bean Snacks

This week I was sent a package with three packs of delicious yet ever so healthy Garbanzo Beans. When I first heard about them I was intrigued as there doesn't seem to be anything else like this out at the moment in the UK and I wasn't really sure what garbanzo beans actually were but with a little research I found out that Garbanzo beans are just another name for chickpeas, I think that it is actually what the Americans call them.

Now onto the actual review, all of the flavours were absolutely delicious, they were crunchy, filling and very satisfying. The portion size is pretty huge at 65g which is even more impressive for the amount of calories in them, and it isn't as though they are lacking in flavour because even with a heavy cold I could experience the taste sensation that was inside each pack.
The Thai and the Bombay flavours were both quite spicy but not to the point that it is painful, and the Tomato and Herb flavour was quite rich in flavour, with a lovely hint of rosemary probably my favourite of all of them!
I look forward to all future products released in the Garbanzo bean range because they are absolutely deliciously nutritious and perfect for an afternoon snack or with lunch to replace crisps.

Cinnamon Pringles

When I heard about these new cinnamon Pringles I was intrigued to say the very least, a sweet crisp, quite bizarre yet a good concept as sweet and savoury is becoming an ever increasing food trend
Upon opening the pack I was greeted with the slight smell of sweet cinnamon, I was ever so slightly nervous as I took my first bite as I didn't really have any idea what to expect.
The taste was nice although a little strange as the still had that signature potato Pringle taste to them. They actually reminded me of the cereal Cinnamon Graham's or are they called Curiously Cinnamon now, I'm not too sure but either way what I am trying to say is that they are nice enough and worth a try but they aren't a taste sensation that will leave you wanting more.

Sweet n Salty PopChips

I love anything that is sweet and salty so I am really enjoying the current influx of these type of products.
These Popchips are simply delicious, they are light and crunchy, a perfect accompaniment with lunch! They are rather unique in the way that they are made as they are neither baked nor fried they are actually popped with air just like popcorn is  which makes these a tasty yet healthy snack in comparison to other crisps available.
They are available in a wide variety of flavours (although I have yet to actually find any others ) so there is a flavour to suit everyone
Overall I really enjoyed this tasty little snack and would highly recommend them !

YooMoo Devilmoo

The demand for frozen yogurt in the UK is starting to grow and quite rapidly too so I thought that it was my duty as a food lover and reviewer to sample some of the YooMoo frozen yogurt as they are a company that specialise in it.
Frozen yogurt is typically healthier than traditional ice cream due to there being less fat in it and if I'm honest you can tell. It isn't as creamy or smooth as regular ice cream and it is quite tart ( I personally quite like it being tart as I enjoy natural yogurt). The chocolate flavour is rather pleasant, not too sickly and not too sweet, the natural flavour is actually quite refreshing so makes a nice afternoon snack 
Overall I quite enjoyed it, it was a guilt free way to enjoy a bit of chocolate throughout the day, with its cute little chocolate stars and tiny pieces of. Fudge brownie in it.
