Review: Easter Eggs from Jamin

Review, Jamin easter eggs chocolateWhen I was a child I was always looking forward to the period before Easter, because that would be the time of the Easter eggs. My parents would usually get a bag of these chocolate eggs in shimmery foil with loads of colors. At that time, most of the eggs were made of solid dark, milk or white chocolate and on a rare occasion you would find some filled with praline or hazelnut. Things sure have changed since then. Nowadays you can buy Easter eggs with filled with everything you can imagine. One of my favorite candy stores, Jamin, even sells 40 different flavors! And they add new flavors every year, how cool is that? This was beyond my imagination and I decided to test 15 of the most appealing and creative flavors.

Review: Chia loves fruit

image

Do you think regular jam holds too much sugar? Then you should try this new alternative called ‘Chia loves fruit’ from Mister Kitchen. In this jam, a great amount of sugar has been replaced by chia seeds. To be exact, Chia loves fruit contains 65% less sugar than regular jam. The chia seeds take care of the binding of the fruit, without extra sugar or gelatin and they add a little bite as well. Stevia is used to make it a little sweeter.

There are 3 different flavors: blueberry – cranberry, apricot – orange and strawberry. I tried the strawberry flavor this time, because I thought this flavor would be easiest to compare with the other jams I know. Lees verder

Review: BubbleTea from Yoyo! Fresh Tea Bar

Ever since I learned about the existence of BubbleTea, I wanted to try it. I figured  I would like it, because I love tea and fruit and I am always open to try new things. And, of course, the cute little bubbels seemed like a fun thing to try. As fortunate as I am to live in Rotterdam, where there are multiple BubbleTea bars, I thought about trying it every time I went shopping in the Rotterdam city centre. But for some reason it took me about 2 years (don’t  ask me why, as I have no clue?) to go and get my first BubbleTea.
