I work in a high stressful job and about 40 women in the office and we all love to snack when stress levels are high. We are always walking around the office asking who has snacks when we are feeling overwhelmed and need to snack. I took these to work so I could share them around and get some feedback. When I overheard someone saying who has snacks I popped up and said me. It wasnt long till a few ladies were standing around my desk asking to try them. They looked over the packet and said these sound yummy.

On taste they all said yum and give me some more. They all really enjoyed them and since I have seen ladies in the office eating them, so they must have gone out and seen them in the supermarket and brought some for work snacks. The taste is great, good amount of coating per nut and good size nuts, not to big and not to small. The balance if perfect and I really think these are just a great snack for on the go or times when stressed and need a fix to get you through the day.

I will be adding these to the shopping cart when I need them, as I know they go down a treat for not only work but also at home for everyone in the family and the kids really enjoy them as well. Great value for money and just make sure you don't leave them in the sun so don't all melt into a big pile. I recomend buying these if you haven't tried them already. The flavours are all good.

Having 3 young children and also working, I find that I tend to just snack on the go during the day, usually it is something unhealthy and I am trying to be better organized. When I saw these Skinny Dipped Almonds in a handy snack size, I thought they would be ideal.

The product comes in a box that is delightfully colourful, and the image shows the almond, the chocolate, and then the raspberry dusting. In the box you are supplied with 5 packs, which are 22g each. I grabbed one of the packets from the box on my way out the door one day and popped it in my bag, the packet is about hand sized. After a busy morning I was feeling peckish so decided to try these skinny dipped almonds.

The packet looks identical to the box, just in packet form and is easy to tear into, I poured the contents into my palm, there was a decent helping. I popped one in my mouth and it was pleasant, a smooth, thin layer of dark chocolate covered in the raspberry, it was nice and the flavour popped, there were different sized almonds in the packet. I feel these would be really handy in our household, the children had some when I got home and said they were yummy. The berry isn't tangy and no one specific flavour out does the other, I look forward to trying the other available flavours in the range.

Now I found this treat interesting. I love the berry dusted white chocolate because of how the smoothness of the white chocolate works together with the tang of the berry. I love the dark chocolate variety where the dark chocolate melts in your mouth. I love the skinny-dipped idea in general, as the minimal coating does actually still provide a great flavour with less calorie cost. So I was really quite surprised at how uneven the flavour seemed to be in this berry and dark chocolate flavour.

Where the raspberry dust had the effect of sweetening the subtle sweetness of the white chocolate, in this product the raspberry is completely overwhelmed by the dark chocolate. It is sweet, and then it disappears before it even has a chance to accent the flavour of the chocolate. Where the other flavours transition from tangy to sweet, to the earthiness of the chocolate, this product's earthy flavour is again overwhelmed by the rich bitterness of the dark chocolate. The chocolate is still nice, but it overpowers all of the other flavours.

Outside of the treat itself, the packaging is nice and vibrant. There is no question as to what is inside the packet, and the large pack consists of smaller "travel" packs, foil-wrapped for freshness and ease of travel. From a health standpoint, I prefer dark chocolate to white chocolate or milk chocolate. While the white chocolate is delicious, and milk chocolate is smooth, dark chocolate is rich and has just enough bitterness to ease my sweet tooth while preventing me from overeating.

It has all of the pieces and elements that could make a great treat, but the balance just isn't quite right for my tastebuds. If perhaps the raspberry dust was incorporated into the dark chocolate, not just dusted on the outside, the flavour profile would be lifted and much more long-lasting. As it is, it's fine, but it's not my fave.

I love almonds but they can be a little boring. As I've got a bit of a sweet tooth, I thought these would be the perfect snack to take to work. The skinny dipped almonds come in an attractive cardboard box that claims that whilst they are skinny on the chocolate, they're not on the taste. These almonds are thinly coated with dark chocolate and have a whisper of freeze-dried berry coating them. There are five 22g packets of almonds in a foiled lined package and there are approximately 10 almonds in each pack. The packs are easy to open and they were a lovely dark chocolate colour with a hint of pink dusting. Although you could taste the berry powder, I didn't think that that flavouring was overpowering. The combination of berry, chocolate, and almond nut was delicious and I liked to suck the berry powder off and then crunch the chocolate almond afterward.

Whilst eating these in the staffroom, a colleague saw them and said she was happy to see they had been released into small pouches. Evidently, once she has opened a big bag, they don't last long enough to bring to work and I can wholeheartedly see why. They are incredibly moreish. Technically, it would be a lot cheaper to buy a big bag and sort them out into individual portions which would also be more environmentally friendly. However, these are convenient and tasty. On the whole, a great lunchbox snack that's sweet but also healthy-ish!

I enjoy nuts of every kind so any snack that has nuts as its base is going to be welcome. I am not so keen on too much sweet stuff so I like the way that Graze have "skinny dipped" this product. Not only is it not oversweet, but the berry dusting adds another dimension to the chocolate layer. There were ten of us trying out this product so I allocated one packet to every two people. I got to share mine with Miss Nine, which was a good choice because she is a real foodie and always into exploring different ways to use new foodstuffs.

All of us were surprised at the initial acid burst as the berry dusting melted on our tongues. Miss Nine actually made a face, but then as the berry taste disappeared we were all left with a soft chocolate inner that melted away to leave a crisp nut inner. Despite the "skinny" version, we did not feel shortchanged on the chocolate. Miss Nine said she wished she could take a packet in her school lunchbox, but nuts are not permitted in her classroom because another child is allergic to them, so she thought she would take some on her next car trip instead. It was a hot day when we tried them and the chocolate was soft, but it had not melted - possibly because it was a thinner layer than usual and the berry dusting helped to stabilise it. The packet did carry a warning about not exposing the contents to direct sunlight, however.

Miss Nine said she would like to get another box so she could use them to decorate a banana split. She has made this dessert in the past with walnuts and raspberries on top of a layer of whipped cream, but thought the berry dusting and the chocolate would replace the fresh berries. This would work well because berries have quite a short season. My cousin said he would never mix them with another food because they were fine just as they were. Either way, both were positive and gave the product an unqualified thumbs up.

Having five little packets inside the box was useful for giving out portions for people going on an outing and taking their own supplies, but we wondered if the packaging was recyclable. It looks as though it might be since it is made of foil, but there was no information provided. This is an important selling point as people - especially children - become more environmentally aware. Products with home compostable packaging, or foil wrapping that can be recycled along with empty tin cans, are becoming more and more mainstream.
