Food & Drink - This Month I've Been Trying...

Ombar Organic Chocolate Coconut & Vanilla Centre*, £1.99/35g and Ombar Organic Chocolate Raspberry & Coconut Centre*, £1.99/35g
These organic and vegan-friendly chocolates were very rich. The raspberry and coconut one was a little too bitter and sickly for me, but had a nice fruity undertone. The coconut and vanilla bar was a little lighter and the flavour combination was really lovely.
(Coconut & Vanilla Ingredients:
Coconut cream*, coconut sugar*, raw cacao*, coconut oil*, cocoa butter*, ground vanilla powder*. *certified organic. Cocoa solids 60% minimum.)
(Raspberry & Coconut Ingredients:
coconut cream*, coconut sugar*, raw cacao*, coconut oil*, cocoa butter*, raspberry powder*, ground vanilla powder*. *certified organic. Cocoa solids 60% minimum.)
Tesco Organic Sweetened Soya Milk, £1/1 litre
This soya milk is the cheapest I've found, with organic ingredients. I love it in my coffees, cereals and recipes. I've tried cheaper soya milks, which are no match at all and taste rather unpleasant! I'd definitely recommend this (or the unsweetened version) milk as a dairy-free option.
Kallo Organic Milk Chocolate Thin Rice Cakes, £1.49/90g
These organic, vegetarian and gluten-free rice cakes with a chocolate covering were a really lovely snack and tasted pretty good!
Organic Milk Chocolate (59%) (Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Full Cream Milk Powder, Organic Cocoa Mass), Organic Wholegrain Brown Rice.)
Special K Nourish Cereals*, £2.99/320-330g
I was really impressed with these new Nourish cereals from Special K; they are low in sugar and fat and taste delicious! I loved each variety, with the Nuts & Seeds hazelnut, almond & pumpkin seed one being my favourite. I'd definitely recommend trying these for a quick, healthy breakfast option. These are great with soya milk or yoghurt.

  1. The coconut and vanilla ombar sounds amazing!

  2. Ombar chocolate bars sound great and would love to try them. It seems that Kellogs are going in the right direction and hopefully in the future they totally remove the processed sugar from their cereals and use the natural ones instead.

    1. Yes, it's nice to see mainstream brands encouraging healthier options. xxx

  3. This is such a great idea for a blog post series, so pleased to see you are continuing with it. The Ombar chocolate looks very intriguing and the flavour combinations are lovely. The cereal sounds so good, and I like how it’s a little healthier. Nice post!! :-) xx
