Golden Oreos

I love American food, it is not just the taste of it but I think that it also has something to do with the allure of novelty products that we can't get here in the UK regularly. 
These Golden Oreos are absolutely delicious, they were the traditional structure of an Oreo, just with a golden biscuit rather than the usual chocolate one. 
The flavour was lovely and pleasantly sweet, they reminded me of custard creams actually so they also had the nostalgia factor (which I must admit was a tad strange as it was a product from a faraway land!)
Overall I really enjoyed these Oreos, I just wish that we had more varieties here in the UK, because I would love to try the mint or peanut butter flavours!

The Primal Kitchen Bars

The Primal Kitchen, the name alone makes me smile because it is so funny to picture a cave person cookies in some big industrial kitchen, and when paired with the simple yet effective packaging! I found these in my local Superdrug on offer for only a pound so I couldn't resist picking up one in every flavour to sample! I know they are supposed to be energy bar things but seeing as I do basically no physical activity I decided that I would have them of an evening with a cup of green tea. 
I really enjoyed these bars, the flavours were naturally sweet with a slightly softer texture than Nak'd bars but still very nice none the less. The coconut one was probably my favourite of all the flavours but that is probably because I love coconut (as you have probably noticed from my many coconut based reviews)

Slim Fruits Sweets

This week I received a lovely package in the mail from the kind people at 'Slim Fruits', with a selection of their products. 

Slim Fruits, they’re sugar-free, fat-free and packed with fibre so they fill you up, not out.

Slim Fruits’ best selling sweets are the world’s first product to harness the beneficial properties of soluble fibre.  Once eaten, they combine with water in the stomach and swell which helps to suppress in between meal hunger pangs and leaves your sweet-treat craving well and truly satisfied in a healthy way. 

The pastilles come in two flavours; Luscious Peach Melba and Luscious Rhubarb & Strawberry. At only two calories a pop and packed with the same fibre content as six slices of wholemeal bread - minus the carbohydrates and fat - Slim Fruits has created the dieting Holy Grail: sweets that help rather than hinder slimming.

So I was intrigued to try these sweets, initially I was concerned that they would taste quite artificial but thankfully that was not the case at all! They were natural in flavour and pleasantly sweet. The rhubarb flavour was definitely my favourite and they actually reminded me of rhubarb and custard which was rather enjoyable.
Overall I enjoyed these sweets and found them to actually be quite filling much to my surprise!
