BBQ Popchips

I have recently developed a love and appreciation of barbecue flavoured things, possibly because as a vegetarian most barbecue flavoured items are off limits so I was excited when I found that PopChips offered it as one of their flavours!
The flavour was strong and smoky, with a spicy kick at the end of every mouthful, but by no means is it unpleasant! The chips themselves were a good size, crunchy and crisp that left you feeling very satisfied and absolutely guilt free because you know that they were cooked in a healthy way, rather low in calories and incredibly flavoursome!

Jelly Belly Milkshakes

Jelly belly had released three flavours of milkshake about a month ago, and when I first saw this product I was a bit sceptical because I thought this would just taste like some cheap rubbish that resembles cardboard or something with equally little flavour. But after a while I was tempted so I bought two flavours, the “top banana and French vanilla”.

For obvious reasons they are not vegan but they are in fact vegetarian and for another added bonus there is no artificial colours, sweeteners and flavours.
There are only a couple of ingredients the main one being semi-skimmed milk, which I always feel is a little reassuring in these type of products.
Once I started drinking I was pleasantly surprised to find that both of them were smooth and creamy not thick and tasteless like I had imagined. The French vanilla was particularly delicious and both were ideal in size and had a pleasant aftertaste which I find rare in milkshakes.
I am ultimately pleased that I picked these up and will definitely buy again and cannot wait for the new flavours!

Caramel Oats so Simple Pot

Porridge is such a deliciously versatile food but often the flavours can be the same and become a little boring. So when I heard about the new Caramel flavour that Oats So Simple have recently brought out, I just knew that I had to try it! 
Caramel flavoured things always have such an indulgent and luxurious feel to them that I cannot help but love.
Now onto the review, the serving size is good and will keep you full through to lunch without feeling bloated or sickly. The flavour was nice enough but it wasn't really caramel that I could taste, it was more like Golden Syrup which was rather disappointing but perhaps I was expecting too much, it was pretty unlikely that it was going to taste like dulce de leche but hey a girl can dream?
Overall it was a tasty breakfast that was a nice break from my regular vanilla overnight oats but it just doesn't taste like caramel. It was worth a try to satisfy my curiosity and abate my sweet tooth but not if you are looking for a phenomenal taste experience.
