They're not filling, but nice to graze on
on 22 February 2014
I was excited to try these, and did so on an empty stomach.
I was (initially) disappointed...
(I suppose I was hungry and my body/brain was expecting a sugar rush - these don't contain any sugar)
But later, in the afternoon, I snacked on a few more and they're actually pretty tasty. They do taste as you would hope "strawberry and vanilla" would taste!
Advice for stoners - you won't like these cos there's no sugar rush. (Unless you have some donuts, or other such things, to have in conjunction with them)
Advice for parents - these are nice, try them. Good guilt free treats for the kids.
Advice for dieters - get these as a treat. (Don't binge on them - laxative effects!)
They really are good for teeth! The bacteria (that make all the acid that rots teeth) try to metabolise the Xylitol but can't. (IIRC, the chemical structure is very similar to that of glucose, so it kind of 'tricks' the bacteria)
I much prefer Xylitol to other sweeteners like the ones found in diet fizzy drinks - there's less bitter aftertaste.
I'd be lying if I said these were as satisfying as real sweets. That said, they're not bad, and actually, it's pretty mind blowing that it's a health food. I would describe the flavour as strawberry milkshake - it is yummy.
Kind of a shame they are so prohibitively expensive.
These are nice to take to the cinema, for example. (But remember - they're terrible for replacing a meal - don't have on an empty stomach!)
