I’ve been lucky enough to test some of the new products recently released by The Exante Diet – and I’m glad I have! I want to nom on one or two of them for the rest of my life, I think.
The Cherry And Almond Bar
When I was told, “You can try out a cherry-and-almond-flavour bar,” my first instinct was, “OOOOH CHERRY!” because I am a sucker for anything cherry flavoured. I have a thing for cherries. They’re in my top 3 fruits, and one of my top 5 flavours-for-things (although, strangely, I prefer artificial cherry flavour over actual cherry flavour… oops).
The Cherry and Almond Bar is almost like sitting down and eating a bar of exceptionally soft-and-squishy marzipan, without the guilt… and getting this gorgeously sweet hint of cherry flavour while you do it. I’ve never really tasted anything like it before. It’s one of those things where you eat it and you’re immediately like, “10/10 would eat again.”
It’s not overly sweet; it’s not overly almondy; it’s not overly cherry-ish. It’s just smooth, and delicious, and I definitely, definitely, would recommend it.
★★★★★/★★★★★ – amazing!
Crunchy Vanilla Cereal
The next up on the list was the Crunchy Vanilla Cereal, which was perfect for me but may, sadly, not be to everyone’s tastes. It’s a typical breakfast cereal, in that it has breakfast cereal flakes in a bath of milk. The milk is, however, vanilla-flavoured, and is of the protein-powder sort of vanilla flavour… which I happen to adore.
The cereal stays crunchy for ages, which is great, because I have a terrible tendency to leave mine sitting while I’m doing something else, only to come back to eat it fifteen minutes later to find soggy flakes and no milk, but not with this stuff. Crunchy flakes and heavenly vanilla milk! My kind of cereal.
★★★★☆/★★★★★ – I adored it, but I’m worried that the vanilla flavour might be too strong for some.
Apple Crumble and Custard Dessert
Unfortunately, I was really let down by the Apple Crumble & Custard Dessert (included in the box of 50 mixed desserts) (AND the Tiramisu, but I’ll move onto that next), because it didn’t taste much like an apple crumble with custard. It had a lovely texture, and nice, crunchy bits in it, but it tasted… lacking. It had a flavour sort of like the boiled sweets that are supposed to be apple crumble with custard flavour, but only very, very slightly. To say I’m disappointed is putting it mildly.
Having said that, I’ll re-state the fact that the texture is lovely, and the fact that there’s the smooth creaminess with the crunch is wonderful, and makes up a little for the overall lack of flavour.
★☆☆☆☆/★★★★★ – woefully lacking in flavour, but with a lovely texture.
The Tiramisu Dessert (pack of 7, save 10%) wasn’t quite as disappointing as the Apple Crumble and Custard Dessert – it had quite a bit more flavour, and came out almost like a mousse (not quite as stiff, though!), which was better. It didn’t taste much like a tiramisu, but it was coffee-ish, and there was a hint of cocoa, which was lovely. It’d definitely do if you needed something to kill a sweet tooth.
★★★☆☆/★★★★★ – not exactly what you’d expect, but good for those who need something for their sweet tooth!
I’m mostly pleased with the new products, as you might be able to tell! I’ve been almost craving one of those cherry and almond bars again since eating it – it’s that good. I’d definitely recommend them.
