Crispy Sesame Seaweed Sandwich Snack Review

Crispy seaweed is popular in Japanese restaurants, but it’s not something I've ever been tempted to eat. However, when wrapped around a piece of sushi, it's really quite inoffensive, in that I can't really taste it!

So when I spotted this Selwyn’s Seaweed Sandwich snack in Holland & Barrett, with only 20 calories per pack, it had to be worth a try.

Funny Feet Strawberry Ice Cream Lollies Review

Funny Feet are strawberry flavoured ice cream lollies which apparently were very popular in the 80’s. They were phased out of production in the 1990s and all but forgotten about.

But thanks to a Facebook campaign by The Grocer magazine, asking for the brands people most wanted to see brought back, Funny Feet won hands down (groan)!

So, for all those with fond memories of Funny Feet, they can now be found once more in the shops, in the same yellow box from the 1980s. And good news for calorie counters, Funny Feet have 70 calories each.

Graze Snack Box Review – Lemon Cake and Cup of Tea

Graze are expanding their product lines in all sorts of directions, one of which is their ‘Afternoon Tea’ range. This line includes a slice of cake together with a tea bag infusion.

At the time of writing the selection includes: Banana Cake (55 calories), Carrot Cake (81 calories), Lemon and Poppy Cake (81 calories) or Love Cake: limited edition (106 calories).

I’d been hoping for one of these cakes to show up in a Graze box soon, and this week, there it was. The Lemon and Poppy Cake with an afternoon infusion.

Claudi & Fin Greek Style Frozen Yoghurt Lollies Review

Sales of frozen yogurt are at an all time high. According to, frozen yogurt sales are going up, while ice cream sales are declining. One reason appears to be that consumers see yogurt as a healthier, lower fat alternative to ice cream.

This isn’t necessarily always the case, as many yogurt desserts can have as much or even more sugar than ice cream. For this reason I've never been too interested in frozen yogurts. However, after reading about new ‘healthy’ Greek-style yogurt ice lollies called Claudi & Fin with only 52 or 56 calories each, I had to try them out.
