Little Bellies Biscuits

I received a sample box of little goodies from Little Bellies and you can receive one too! (Link at the bottom of this post.) There is too much in the range to fit into one post, so I'm reviewing each of the product categories separately. Today is biscuit day!

Who doesn't love a bite sized bicky?!? These cute mini biscuits taste as good as they look.

The Animal Biscuits contain (per 100g) 14.0g fat (4.3 saturated), 19.0g sugar, 5.0g fibre and 170mg sodium. So these aren't entirely a green light according to the RHealth keyring cheat guide, but you can't expect a biscuit to be perfect. It is wonderful to know that the sugar content comes from organic grape juice concentrate. 

The Mini Gingerbread Men are also sweetened purely with organic grape juice. This makes up (per100g) 20.5g sugar. You're also looking at 13.0g fat (4.2g saturated), 5.0g fibre and 160mg sodium, so again not perfect, but a good place to start if you're chasing a little treat. (I compared the nutrition panel and ingredients list to another mini gingerbread and I can tell you that Little Bellies are *so* much better from what I could tell) The ginger flavour is beautifully subtle. I'm not a huge ginger fan, but will quite happily munch on Gingernut biscuits. These Mini Men are not as strong in flavour as the Gingernuts, to give you an idea.  Miss M has started to proclaim her dislike of everything, so I'm not sure if she's inherited my aversion for ginger, or if she's just being picky, but I quite liked their taste. 

  • Certified Organic
  • No added preservatives, artificial colours or flavours
Loving a little less, but liveable:
  • Price wise these are well above the unit price of your average tea dunker

I love the cute little animals and will certainly be introducing these to Honey when the time is right. For now with Miss M's appetite I'm afraid budget is going to win.

Tune in next week to see all these wonderful goodies incorporated into our lunches and snack :-)
