5 Snacks To Look Out For At B.I.G.

Confectionery holds such a big part in all our lives that most of us instantly relate childhood memories to them. Stories of sharing, stumbling across by accident, or sneakily taking our siblings’ share can bring bouts of laughter anytime we stop to think about them. Of course we’re very aware that confectionery is best consumed in moderation, but we have a wise person to thank for the saying “Everything in moderation, including moderation itself’. In that spirit, let’s dive into our top 5 picks for snacks and sweets you absolutely must try:  

Sheila G Brownies

Move over peanut brittle, we’ve just found our new favourite teatime snack! If you’re anything like us, you wouldn’t understand those people who cut off the crispy corners and bottoms of brownies and cakes and only eat the softer middle parts. Like, how could you even? The crisp, ever so slightly burnt crusty parts are what makes life worth living. And now Sheila G Brownies pack all that goodness into an entire bag! Screw feeling guilty, life is brittle.  

El Sabroso Guacachips

With all the rage about avocado these days, why not just have em’ directly on a crisp? El Sabroso’s Guacachips combine the crispy kick of savory corn chips with buttery-smooth avocados all in one bite. While it tastes muy-excelente on it’s own (because the guacamole is already pretty much on there), you can still try it out with different dips of your choice. Here’s a salsa recipe we recommend from ASpicyPerspective.com – enjoy!

Mister Free’d Tortilla Chips

They say nothing in life is free – but when it’s gluten-free, guilt-free, and free-kishly good, that’s something we could get used to! These ‘craveable’ tortilla chips are made with simple, natural ingredients that’ll have you reaching for another bag almost without thinking. Incorporating healthy superfoods and proteins, they are available in 3 distinct flavours which are Kale & Spinach, Chia Seed, and Blue Maize. We think a nice hummus dip would go particularly well with this, don’t you – click here for a great recipe!

YumEarth Organic Hard Candy

Drop all your other candies because YumEarth is in the building! This charming organic candy company started out as two Dads trying their hand at making simple, quality sweets for their children. They were particularly concerned with the presence of allergenic substances in some candies they found on store shelves, so they set about making sure their sweets had none of the ‘top 8 allergens’; eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree-nuts and wheat. Ranging from Wild Peppermint to Pomegranate Pucker, their hard candies are as delicious as they sound. 

Mr Stanley’s Crispy Salted Caramel Cocoa Coating Caviar

Known to most by their instantly-recognizable pastel-coloured striped boxes, Mr. Stanley’s has been brightening the faces of candy-lovers everywhere since 1843. Before you dismiss this product as too ‘atas’, don’t worry it’s not real caviar – it’s just a creative way of naming their little salted caramel flavoured cocoa pearls that are truly irresistible (we recommend putting a padlock on the box). Don’t take our word for it, try it for y- oh, you’re on the way to get them? Awesome!
