This rainy Sunday afternoon in Feb has bought me to finally write this long-overdue review of a product I received at Christmas very kindly from one of my clients...thanks Jen!
Before receiving this product, I had never heard of The Goodness Project ( https://thegoodnessproject.co.uk ), but on opening the package and doing a little research, I absolutely love the idea! The company sources the best vegan, gluten-free and natural products that are available on the market and make them available in subscription boxes on a one, three or six month basis.
My box included the 7 products pictured above, none of which I have ever tried, and if I'm honest I'm usually quite dubious about buying an entire box of each new product to try that comes out in case I don't like them, and I'll be the first to admit that snack bars have to be pretty tasty for me to want to buy more than one at a time!
I was so pleasantly BLOWN AWAY with the choice of snack bars in the box and they were absolutely perfect on my mornings between working with clients and teaching Barre. So on to the small details... an individual review of each bar - other reviews may differ, but for my sweet tooth, this is what I thought;
1. GOJI GOODNESS (£0.99 for 38g bar from The Goodness Project)
A raw fruity flapjack, at 118 calories and counts as 1 of your 5 a day. I'm not always a fan of these types of bar, as the texture is something a little different to get used to, yet the berry flavours bursting from this bar were delicious and kept the bar moist.
2. MONTEZUMA'S 73% DARK CHOCOLATE (30g bar, not currently available from The Goodness Project in this size)
Mum and I LOVE dark chocolate and I do genuinely feel that it sorts my sweet cravings out on days where I need a little pick-me-up. This bar was perfectly sized - although if I had the larger size I wouldn't say no to eating the whole thing! The chocolate was the perfect mix of bitter and sweetness, and on research, I found the creators of Montezuma's have a lovely little story of how they came up with their chocolate making business.
