  • Chia seeds
    Hi All, This product is great! My boyfriend loves it too, which is great! It's can be used so many ways which is great. We often sprinkle it on the top of yogurt and fruit in the morning to get some omega's into our day. They don't taste strong or impede on the taste of the fruit or yogurt which is great too, they just a a bit of a crunch and pop with we both like. I think they are a great way to introduce a healthy food choice into your life. The additional fibre they add into your day is a wonderful bonus too!
  • Red palm oil
    Hi all, I tried the product and I wasn't thrill with the texture, I found it had a sort of grainy texture to it. Perhaps keeping it in the fridge would help with this. I did enjoy the taste - it was fresh tasking compared to many oils I use. Using it as a stir fry oil I would consider using it in something like hummus, I think that would add a nice base flavour with out being over powering. For the time being though, I don't think I'd go out of my way to find it.
  • City Snacks - freeze dried fruit
    Hi All, The pear snack was tasty - even my boyfriend enjoyed a bite or too. It actually tastes like pear and the texture was much better than I anticipated from the look. I was expecting a cardboardy taste but was pleasantly surprised by the light and airy texture. Easier to eat that chewy dried fruit. It's a nice alternative to dried fruit that has been sweetened. I would recommend it - however the price point might be a bit high for an everyday kids lunch box treat.
