I am a chocoholic and I need help! There I said it and that’s half the battle right? Seriously I have to eat a block of chocolate every day without fail. I tried to join the ‘I Quit Sugar’ brigade but the no sugar bit didn’t work for me.
A friend recently told me about Carob. Apparently it’s a great replacement for chocolate lovers as it’s supposedly delicious and low in fat and calories. Carob is also high in protein and essential vitamins, and is naturally gluten and caffeine free! It sounds to good to be true ?!
I received a box of Australian Carob Co products from Red Balloon Marketplace to try. I must say they didn’t taste as bad as I thought. Yes it’s definitely not chocolate but the health benefits will help to convert me I hope.
Included in the box was 1 x 100g Carob Buttons, 1 x 200g Carob Powder and 1 x 200g Kibbles ( which you receive every month on subscription). Great for use in smoothies, baking or as an on-the-go snack. I carry the buttons in my bag to stem off those sugar cravings and it works. Now I can satisfy my sweet tooth without the guilt!
I am definitely a subscription service fan. I get my magazines delivered so why not carob treats? It saves you the hassle of going to buy them and you’re stocked up every month. One less thing to worry about!
