Nudie Coconut Chips

Coconut is such a delicious flavour and there is nothing better than getting a whole coconut, cracking it open and eating the flesh whilst it is still fresh with the coconut juice on it. Coconut is often thought of as a bit of a superfood because all of the nutrients and good fats in it that supposedly speed up your metabolism (how true this is I don't know but we can live in hope).
So anyway, when I went to the free from and allergy food convention a few weeks ago I bought a few bags of these 'Nudie' coconut chips and they were absolutely delicious! They were sweet and slightly salted which just amplified the sweetness. They weren't oily or greasy at all which was lovely, basically I loved them and I can't wait to get more bags! Where from I am not entirely sure but I will make it my mission to find even more!

Beyond Dark Chocolate

I absolutely love chocolate, in any way, shape or form so when I found out that I have a problem with lactose I was devastated that I would no longer be able to enjoy it. Thankfully though, my favourite type of chocolate (dark) is free of dairy, but sometimes it can get a tad boring having just regular dark chocolate so when I spotted these yummy varieties of it. Chocolate Orange and the unusual Chocolate Raspberry! 
Both were incredible, just wow. I loved the rich and so indulgent, the perfect serving size that leaves you feeling satisfied and happy. I look forward to any future additions to the range seeing as there is a lack of single serving dark chocolate products on the market!

Cocofina Bars

The CocoFina as you will have guessed from the name specialises in coconut based products, ranging from the increasingly popular coconut water to the staple raw food bars. From what I have tried from the range I can quite happily say that it is all absolutely delicious!
The bars consisted of coconut (obviously), dates, and cocoa and goodness me this is a match made in heaven! The bars are moist and sweet with enough texture and subsistence to leave you satisfied. I ate the bars as a snack inbetween meals and initially I was a tad worried that I would still be hungry but boy was I wrong! The fibre filled, healthy ingredients worked brilliantly not only as a taste sensation but as a good source of energy too!
Overall I really enjoyed these bars because they were absolutely delicious yet incredibly healthy using only natural, vegan ingredients.

Kind Bars

These Kind bars are simply delicious, they are chewy and sticky yet have a good crunch to them thanks to the plethora of nuts in it. The flavour was natural and subtly sweet so as to not seem artificial or sickly. There are only natural ingredients in it and they are sweetened with honey. The fruity flavour shines through wonderfully and adds a freshness to them that you just can't beat! They are a great source of energy because of all the nuts and fruit in them and leave you feeling nothing less than satisfied after munching on one! They are typically £2.00 a bar which I must admit is quite expensive but I think that they are imported from America originally.
