Foodie Finds – September 2018

A little bit late with posting this, but better late than never! This shows what a busy month September was for me, but probably the best month of the year so far! I went to Egpyt for a holiday which was incredible, I turned 21, and to top it all off I also started my third year of uni!

But I’m officially back and full of blog ideas! Despite this busy month, I still managed to find some goodies…

1) Whey Box cookies & cream protein sachets43356915_312586136236288_6768224763157413888_n

I wanted to include this mainly due to the convenience that this gives. I bought two sachets to take on holiday with me, as you never know where you are going to get your protein from when abroad :’) I rate the protein highly on taste, texture, and it also mixes well, so it’s a good option for if you want a quick protein hit on the go.

2) Fulfil chocolate hazelnut whip

One of the best protein bars I have had! I’m a big fan of the hazelnut and chocolate combo and this really does it justice, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a more chocolatey protein bar than this. Whenever I see it when I’m out, I just have to buy it :’) Definitely would recommend if you’re a Nutella fan!

 

3) Minimoos vegan honeycomb chocolate bar43318838_276645512971876_621280454024101888_n

I was craving some chocci, and this somehow managed to find it’s way into my basket! This was my first time trying any vegan or gluten-free chocolate, and I certainly couldn’t taste any differences. I think the honeycomb is a great addition to this bar, it’s a yes from me! Also, I think it’s the perfect size as I realise with myself I can’t open a bar of chocolate and finish it all…so you’ll be safe with this if you’re like me!

Back at it again with another protein bar (help!). I’ve been looking out for this one for quite a long time, and it didn’t disappoint. I like fulfil bars because of the added vitamins that they include, which other bars often don’t. Very chocolatey, very delish = a chocoholics dream.

 

5) Candy Kittens Eton mess43437576_269592967020590_8240858440663040000_n

Saving the naughtiest until last! Someone actually bought these for me, but when I tried them they just had to feature in the foodie finds! Eton mess is one of my favourite summer desserts and these sweets do it justice, for sure! Also, they are vegetarian and gluten-free.

Foodie Finds – August 2018

How are we at the end of August, already?! I feel like ever since uni ended for summer, that I haven’t actually stopped :’) Still, I’m feeling ready to go back and take on the third year! I’m also looking forward to September as it’s the start of new beggings (and my birthday! πŸ˜‰ I Found lots of goodies this month (mainly grenade products because I’m well and truly obsessed!). Let’s get into ittt…

40436300_325124618242772_7928773953588297728_n1) Grenade Carb Killa Shake

Despite my love for grenade bars, I had never tried their shakes until recently. I purchased the cookies and cream and the fudge brownie shake, and they basically taste like the bar! I personally wasn’t keen on the cookies and cream shake, as I found it far too sweet but the fudge brownie one, on the other hand, is delish! I would definitely choose the bars over the shakes, but I get that it’s a convenient way to get your protein in.

2) Sour Cream & onion Quinoa Bites40479100_520616281730775_865848574896766976_n

I love finding healthy alternatives to crisps, and these do not disappoint. They are only 85 calories per pack, and yet taste so amazing. Quinoa flour is the main ingredient in them, giving them a slightly different texture to normal crisps…I rate them!

This looks way better than it tastes! I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this one as it was too sweet or me. The vanilla is very overpowering, making it very sickly to eat. Although the texture is a lot softer, compared to the others, the cookies and cream will always have my heart :’)

4) Tan Rosie – aubergine and mushroom spread40444606_492000197982278_3487029448782381056_n

This stuff is so good! I first discovered Tan Rosie products at the Chilli Fiesta in August. I love how their products use such simple ingredients, yet the flavour is incredible. You can literally do anything with this product, I was having it on toast and mixing it through quinoa and spaghetti. I haven’t seen a foodie product like this, and I definitely think there is room for something like this on the market…good luck to the ladies who are running this!

40409988_256969575153157_582020510158684160_n5) Grenade Carb Killa Chocolate Fudge Brownie

Back at it again with another Grenade product :’). I had been wanting to try this bar for so long, and I wasn’t that pleased with it. I think the original grenade bars have set the standard so high that nothing can compare! It tastes very chocolatey, but I found it a bit too rich!

6) Nims Pineapple Fruit Crisps40525842_2107629889249869_6587183104127926272_n

I thought this was quite a novel way to get your five a day in, and so had to give them a go. The only ingredient is dried pineapple, that has been dried naturally. Although they are high in sugar (naturally occurring), with each bag containing 14g, they make a nice sweet snack that also counts towards one of your five-a-day.
