With the shops inundated with chocolate in readiness for Mother's Day and Easter, you might find yourself searching for a healthier treat...a guilt-free alternative to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Well, look no further! Panda All Natural Liquorice is the perfect sweet and chewy snack for when you are counting the calories. The range contains just four ingredients: molasses syrup, wheat flour, liquorice extract and aniseed oil. Then they add a little fruit puree, raspberry, blueberry or cherry, to make a sweeter, softer textured liquorice sweet. It'll satisfy your cravings and you'll benefit from the health giving properties of the liquorice plant. It's been used for thousands of years for the treatment of digestive problems, ulcers, respiratory conditions, hangovers and for detox.
The new fruity Panda Liquorice is a million miles away from the hard, bitter liquorice from our childhood. This is like a healthy version of pick 'n' mix!
We were sent a bag of each of the three fruity flavours of Panda All Natural Liquorice to try out. Dad, Ian who is a big fan of liquorice thought the flavour was very mild, which would definitely appeal to children. They taste very natural and not at all synthetic. The texture was nice and chewy and the shape was fun made up of tubes joined together. Kizzy said they were 'addictive' as she chomped her way through a handful. They are definitely a great alternative to the high sugar sweeties which are loaded with e numbers. The Panda Liquorice comes in a resealable pouch for freshness.
They can be bought for £2.25 in Holland and Barrett.
