afternoon-treatsHaving been sent a couple of different treats to try lately, we decided the best idea would be to have a little afternoon taste test/treat session. After all, who doesn’t love a little afternoon treat?

First, we were sent these new chocolate topped rice cakes from Kallo. I like the idea of these because plain Kallo rice cakes have the shortest possible ingredients list: brown rice. That’s it. They’re my snack of choice when I’m in a snacky mood, and I often spread peanut butter or cream cheese on a rice cake for lunch. S loves a rice cake here and there too, but then she still likes a treat snack too. These hit the mark because they are rice cakes with a little chocolate on top – and nowhere near as sugary (or filled with random flavourings, additives, colourings…)



The verdict?

Well, here is the photo I tried to take of the packet before we started eating…


Let’s just say, they didn’t last long. Here is S skillfully modelling the fact they come in handy little packs, perfect for a lunch box.

S loved the rice cakes so much, she actually sandwiched them up and ate them two at a time. Luckily, I was able to hide a couple of packs away for another day!

Next, we had some new florentines from Thomas J Fudge’s


After the success of the rice cakes, S was keen to try these too!


The box contained 16 mini florentines with milk, dark and white chocolate. Florentines are basically chocolate with flaked almonds and syrup. Not terribly good for you, but… terribly good! Nom!


General consensus was: thumbs up!

Luckily for mummy though, S still preferred the rice cakes – so I got to eat some of the florentines!

Ohh yummy! I do like the look of the florentines! S looks happy with everything x

    She was very happy… I think we’re going to end up having to buy lots more of the rice cakes! Better than stocking up on chocolate biscuits though!
