Chocolate Bar Arrivals for Autumn 2013

As it's coming up to Christmas again, there is the usual onslaught of new chocolate bars appearing on confectionery shelves everywhere. Over the past few weeks I've come across a new bar from Mars, two from Cadbury's and one from Kinder.

Rather than write a single post for each new chocolate bar I've found, I've decided to lump them together in groups to save time. I'll also be adding them to my Calories in Popular Chocolate bars post.

Patient.Co.Uk - MyHealth Tool Review

The Internet is awash with self-help health websites. Many of them are very useful, while others should be labelled with a health warning! But the Internet is often a first port of call for many of us when searching for information.

However, when it comes to our health, it's simply not worth taking a risk from dubious online sources. If you’re concerned about your health or just want to know how you can go about improving your lifestyle, you can find a wealth of information from patient.co.uk.

Weight Watchers Oat & Wheat Crackers Review

Weight Watchers Oat & Wheat Crackers BoxI’ve been trying to cut down on the amount of wheat based products we eat in my family. This isn’t easy as wheat, in some form or another seems to be a part of most meals. As a halfway compromise, I picked up a box of Weight Watchers Oat & Wheat crackers.

They’re low in calories, fat and sugar and are described as Light and crispy with oats and wheat. One single cracker has only 18.5 calories.

Graze Box Snack Review – Coffee & Walnut Cake

Graze Box Coffee and Walnut cake, one of my all time favourites. However, I can’t even remember the last time I ate a real slice of this cake. It's just not something I'd choose as a snack any more.

But actually, Graze's coffee and walnut cake isn’t a cake at all. This snack is great if you're trying to get healthy and feel you’re missing out on treats. With a clever combination of ingredients, Graze manage to conjure up a similar taste sensation to coffee & walnut cake, albeit in a healthier way.

Snack a Jacks Packs for Under 100 Calories

Snack a Jacks savoury Rice Cakes and Crunchy Curls are great tasting snacks with around 7% fat. They’re available in individual sized packs or multipacks. Snack a Jacks are ideal for helping with weight control as packs typically contain around 110 calories.

But, if you’re looking to shave a few more calories off your daily intake, you’ll find the bags inside the multipacks bags have fewer calories. True, the packs are smaller, but you’d barely notice the absence of two or three rice cakes or crunchy curls.

Sweet Freedom Choc Shot Review

While browsing the ‘Sweet Freedom’ website a few weeks ago (a site I hadn’t visited before), a new product instantly caught my attention. It was called Choc Shot and was due to be released into the supermarkets in a few weeks. What perfect timing.

While the new Choc Shot sounded like an ideal solution to my kids ‘Nutella’ addiction, it also ticked the right boxes for fitting in with my new low GL way of eating. Yep, this product has a low glycemic load (foods with a low GL rating encourage the body to burn fat) AND each teaspoon has just 14 calories or 13.7 to be exact!
