We've sussed out these delicious almonds, thinly coated with dark chocolate. We've stripped some layers to go skinny on the chocolate but not on the taste. Our multi-packs make it easy to get your skinny on when you're out and about.
Ingredients: Roasted Almonds (50%) (Almonds, Canola Oil), Dark Chocolate (50%) (Cocoa Mass, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin), Natural Vanilla Flavour, Milk).
Dark Chocolate hit with almond is a must have for the flavour taste buds. This almond coated in dark chocolate is so tasty and yummy. The prefect blend of the two and the right amount, not one flavour over powering the other. These goes down and treat and are great for a snack at 3pm when feeling hungry and needing that pick me to get through to dinner time. I took these to work and everyone who tried them really enjoyed them.
The went down a treat and I will be buying more for the work space so I can enjoy these at work and share them with my mates. Its amazing how fast these can be eaten when people here that chocolate coated nuts have been opened. For the price you pay, they are a great snack and plenty in the packet. The kids love them as well, and I guess it depends if you want to share them with the kids or keep for yourself.
The dark chocolate I find is not overly harsh how some dark chocolate is, it is a lovely treat alongside the almond. The crunch from the but and the taste of the chocolate work so well together. I will be buying some to take camping with us, for some late afternoon snacks or after dinner snacks when playing cards. Also good for when friends pop over. These would also work well on a platter, I think adding them to a platter would be a real treat and also go well with cheese.
Growing up I remember thinking as a child how boring nuts were, and I would never eat them, as I have gotten older though I have started to enjoy them more. Lately I have been attempting to get healthier and lose some weight, to do this I have started reducing the junk I eat, and replacing with healthier alternatives. As I am a busy mum of 3 young children, and also work, I often find my energy levels take a dive, when I saw these snack packs available, I thought they would be perfect to have on the go.
The packaging is visually appealing, and the packets inside the box are identical to the box, each packet is 22g in size, which when poured into my palm filled it. The packet was easy to open, and due to its size it is perfect in lunchboxes, bags, purses, or even just on hand in the glovebox of the car. The skinny dipped almonds were all roughly the same proportion, and the thin layer of dark chocolate was just the right texture, and thickness. The almond has a nutty taste which is not overpowered by the chocolate, and after finishing there is no weird aftertaste.
I enjoyed these and will most likely purchase more to have on hand, the kids have taken them in their lunchboxes to school to have as an energy boost after their swimming lessons. This product is a winner and I would be keen to see them in a larger multi pack size in the future.
I've been on a diet for nearly 5 months now and managed to reduce my weight by around 25kg. It was a lot of hard work managing cravings and changing what I eat while slowly increasing my exercise levels. while exercise has slowly gotten easier to do (and be motivated to do) as my weight has decreased, my initial weight loss was completely down to changes in my diet. Now, I have previously been a bit of a fast-food addict, and an energy drink addict, and helps explain how I got up to 125kg+ (considering I could eat 6 cheeseburgers in a single meal along with a litre of V).
The hardest part of changing a diet is the addictions and cravings for fat and sugar. While fruit were nice, it can get a bit boring after a while, and it never satisfies enough to remove the temptation of sugary things. One of the things that I used to "tame my elephant" was dark chocolate. It had that sweetness that could help reduce the cravings, while the bitterness prevented me from wanting to eat too many of them. I used to specifically pick dark chocolate with almond varieties as a way to further dilute the calories of the sugar with a healthier alternative like an almond.
So you can guess that I was very pleased to discover this product. Flipping the formula I was using to move it even more towards the healthy side of things, rather than bits of almond embedded in a chocolate bar, this is a skinny-dipped coating of chocolate around an entire almond.
The product itself comes in 5 easy-to-travel-with foil packs, which helps keep the product fresh for longer and help reduce the temptation to eat the whole lot in one go. Granted the portion size they provide is still quite high on the calories, but they have certainly taken a good number of steps to cut down overconsumption.
The ratio of chocolate to almond makes this a nice treat if you want to practice mindfulness with food. You want to enjoy and experience the dark chocolate flavour, but as this is only a skinny-dipped product, it doesn't have the necessary thickness (compared to say, a Nestle scorched almond) for you to chew the chocolate off of. You can't really use your teeth at all initially as if you do, the flavour disappears completely within moments. The way that this product is layered on means you get the best enjoyment by letting the treat be held in your mouth, rolling it around and savouring the flavour as the chocolate slowly melts away in your mouth. Sweet, and earthy with a slight bitterness. I like it.
I love chocolate almonds and love how the humble almond can be so quickly transformed. Five packs of 22g Graze Skinny Dipped Almonds come in an attractive cardboard box with a picture of two chocolate nuts on the side - one that is thinly coated with a "Yeah!" next to it and a thickly coated almond with a "Nah!" next to it - how Kiwi! It's pretty obvious what you're getting and if you want your almonds coated in lots of chocolate, this isn't the nut for you! When I looked at the nutrition information, I did notice that they were lower in saturated fats, carbohydrates, and sodium than other almonds in the 'skinny dipped' range. I took this to mean they're probably the healthiest for you... well, they do say dark chocolate is good for you!
Each foil pack contains around 10 good-sized chocolate almonds and they are definitely thinly coated, but not so you could see the nut anywhere. They were more-ish and I'm glad I only packed one pack to work as I could easily have eaten two packs. You can taste that it is high-quality dark chocolate they have used and these are really tasty and gave me the sweet pick me up that I needed at breaktime. Yes, it would be cheaper to buy a big bag and portion them out, but I know if I did that, I'd sort the first portion out and then probably finish the pack. These are convenient and delicious snacks to enjoy on the go that are easy to pack in your lunchbox or bag if you are going out.
