Jim Jams Less Sugar Hazelnut Chocolate Spread

In these days of sugar overload, it’s hard to find a packaged product that doesn’t list it somewhere in the ingredients. Therefore, I was intrigued to hear about a range of spreads and jams that have been specifically produced to contain far less sugar than their counterparts.

JimJams is a new brand which includes an alternative to that high sugar favourite (Nutella), with 83% less sugar.

I purchased a jar of the JimJams Hazelnut Chocolate spread to see how it compared with Nutella.

Cranes Premium Cranberry Cider Review

Cranes cranberry ciderYou may not have heard of Cranes, but I have a feeling their name will become a familiar one in the not too distant future. Cranes is the world’s first premium cranberry cider’ which is made from fermented cranberries. At the time of writing there are three varieties: Original Cranberry; Raspberry & Pomegranate and Strawberry & Kiwi.

Cranes Cranberry ciders are 4% alcohol and sold in 275ml bottles. Each bottle has just 99 calories, around half the calories of wine!

Koko Dairy Free Light Review

Having tried out several brands of dairy free coconut milk, Koko’s Dairy free alternative is my favourite (see review). Besides tasting nice, it's low in fat, saturates, salt and calories. If, like me, you like the taste of Koko Dairy free, you might be interested in their Light version.

I must admit that when I was kindly sent a sample to try out, I couldn’t see the point of it. I mean, the original is already low fat etc. so why make one that’s even lower? Even more so since we’re all being told that low fat isn’t the way to go now!

Inspiral Organic Kale Chips Review

Inspiral sweet chilli and mint Kale ChipsGood old potato crisps may still be one of the country’s favourite snacks. But these days they have plenty of competition from other vegetables. Like kale for example. Kale is one of the latest healthy food trends and with good reason. Kale is rich in antioxidants, calcium and vitamin A. But to be honest, it’s not all that tasty in its pure unadulterated form.

One of the tastiest ways of preparing kale is turning it into crisp form. While there are many brands offering their own version of kale crisps (see review pret), my favourites so far are made by Inspiral. They make a range of different flavour varieties and they come in different sized packs. Great news is they are all low in calories.
