Goal Power is a new kid’s healthy flapjack snack and game that promotes children reaching their goals and enjoying a healthy active lifestyle. The idea is the children enjoy the healthy, fibre and nutrition-packed snack and then they can collect cards or set goals online to achieve.

The aim is to help kids to get outdoors, be active and take some time out from their screen time.

Happi Oat Milk Chocolate

I don’t ever have to be asked twice to try out a chocolate and I do enjoy oat milk, so I was very excited to try out the range of chocolates from Happi.

Lower in sugar than other chocolate brands, dairy free and vegan friendly, Happi ticks all the boxes for treat time. There is a wide choice of flavours too and it ticks the boxes for recyclable packing too, using a card sleeve and a home compostable plastic inner. I do much prefer to choose a product that is more environmentally friendly.

It’s not just for the kid but me too, I get a 15 minute lunch break at work normally and I can’t just be grabbing a chocolate bar everyday! So I was only too pleased to try out some Munchy Seeds.

As a general rule I don’t go too fancy with my chocolates, I prefer a good quality dark chocolate over a milk, but it tends to just be off the shelf from the supermarket and enjoyed of an evening. Conscious Chocolate offers something a bit different, being a raw chocolate and I was intrigued to give it a go.

Oxford Rye Organic Vodka

We have recently had the pleasure of trying Oxford Rye Organic Vodka, it’s a sublimely smooth drink and would make an excellent Father’s Day gift.

Having thoroughly enjoyed it I’ve got some more information about this wonderful drink to share with you, so please read on.

Eco Friendly Firelighters fireDRagon

With barbecue season on it’s way, the weather must get better soon surely! Barbecues across the country are getting cleaned and ready to go, charcoal is being purchased and burgers are making their way into shopping baskets ready to be enjoyed. So I thought I’d share a great new product with you, FireDragon from BCB International.

FireDragon is an eco-friendly firelighter made from rotten vegetable mass. It sounds horribly simple, and it is, but it could mean great things for the planet if people make the switch. HRH Prince Charles called it “remarkable” on a recent visit to BCB International.
