Apparently it’s got 48 calories per serve???? (of course, check the nutrition panel on the side, and it says 120 calories per serve, which is 250mL. LIARS). Ah that makes more sense given how sweet it tastes (48 calories is a meagre 100 mL serve)
Girl. Read the reading tlist they send you with these things. All the new boxes will have the proper serving sizes marked (250mL) for Aussie consumers. :)
How does it taste? Sweet. Like chocolate yogo (actually more like snakpak!!) Just like chocolate milk without the taste of dairy. Yes, I’d drink it, but probably needs to be really cold to be best (perhaps served with ice?)
I received my ticket to the Good Food and Wine Show from Chobani. It is, like, the most awesome Greek yoghurt out there. Seriously.
I was supposed to go with friends to the Good Food and Wine show. But they were sicked with the cold that’s been going around, and only let me know an hour before we were meant to meet *sadface* So, I was left to wander and sample on my own. Here are my thoughts…
Ahem…. Maybe I don’t share my thoughts on that pic ;)
Skinny Girl Cocktails were vamping it up, with skinny girls in mini skirts, and offering samples of their cocktails and also massages (not that I could be bothered waiting!). The Margarita was good. Ready to drink, with some rimming salt ;)
I dabbled in some Avocado oil. Hmmm… Think I’ll stick with Olive for the price…
There was a crapload of cider for sampling. Of which I tried none :(
I had a good chat to the people of Rowie’s Cakes about how great it was that they were supplying to the Qantas QFML and VGML range :) And their ANZAC bikkies were awesome.
Yes, I spend too much time browsing the aisles at my local Woolworths. Especially the ‘Health food’ aisle, which consists of various gluten, dairy and sugar-free goodies just waiting to be tried. Here’s a few that I picked up recently at my local store… [click to continue…]
We may have a little victory in the search for a cane sugar-free, dairy free chocolate that doesn’t have a laxative effect or taste like ew.
Loving Earth produce a range of raw chocolate bars that are dairy-free dark chocolate and sweetened with Agave syrup. They’re vegan and also gluten free. Oh and fair trade cocao, but made in Australia. Sweet.
I shared an almond bar with my workmates this afternoon, who all approved, and were also happy for me ;) I’ll try the others at some point (I have the lucoma and maca one to take to my eight hours of uni on Sunday. I think I’ll need it!) but even if there’s only one awesome flavour, it’s a great start!
(available online, or from various health food stores in Australia, NZ, Malaysia, Japan and Israel, apparently!)
On the quest to till be able to eat yummables without nasty things happening inside of me, I’ve been trawling the “health food” aisles… can’t do health food stores yet, aisles will be my starting point. There is so much out there now for gluten free! A few years ago when I’d heard of such [...]
I know, I know, I’m not supposed to eat nearly this much chocolate, let alone in one sitting, and yes, my intestines were paying for it for the rest of the evening. But, oh, it was good to visit the Lindt Chocolate Cafe at Darling Harbour last week. Nom? Tweet
Unfortunately, it looks like I won’t be eating chocolate for awhile. *sulks* It seemed to be upsettling my stomach over the Easter weekend, and then when I had a mini mars bar yesterday, my tummy wasn’t happy at all for the rest of the afternoon. It may not be the chocolate only, but I’ll start [...]
After mindlessly eating my second Freddo Frog, (after already having my “treat” of cake that day”) I decided, That’s it – I need another month without chocolate. And it’s decided. No chocolate for me (or Rish – he’s in on it too) until the evening of September 27. A month off chocolate. Help us all. [...]
Just sitting here, checking my email, and snacking away on a salmon and tomato sandwich. Remembering how much I love canned fish such and tuna and salmon, and how I used to live on tuna or salmon sandwhiches as a kid. With the snackfood of a bowl of lettuce with lemon juice for a snack. [...]
So, not even a week ago, I boldly declared that I was to have no more chocolate for a month, until Rish and my anniversary on December 6th. Of course, last night, Rish tempts me with a block of Lindt chocolate… and tells me that I’ve earned it from all my work at the gym [...]
