The Exante Diet Review: Day Four

FATGIRLslim | The Exante Diet

Last week, I was offered the chance to trial a week’s worth of Exante Diet [afilliate link!] products, and I know that The Exante Diet have really expanded their product line since the first time I did a week-long review of Exante Diet products.

So, for this entire week, I was doing a weekly vlog and then I had planned to do one big review (I’m writing this on Thursday, 24 September), but have decided to split the reviews up and post them on their respective days, with one collated review at the end.

Products eaten today were as follows:

Orange & Pineapple Shake

It’s seeming to be a trend, with the shakes, that all I’m saying is, “They’re not sweet enough for the flavour they’re trying to be!” which is really, deafeningly, disappointing.

The chewy sweet I’m trying to remember in the video, in case anyone’s interested, is Fruit Salad flavour Chewits, by the way. πŸ™‚ I literally went through about 25 different retro sweet online stores before I found them, pointed at the screen and went, “THAT’S THEM!”

But the shake itself still isn’t quite sweet enough to carry the flavour. >:( Sadface. Consistency’s lovely, again. Just lacking that little bit of sweetness to really bring out the flavour and make it really, REALLY great.

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†/β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… for the Orange & Pineapple Shake alas.

Maple Syrup Flavour Pancakes

I’m Scottish. I’m sure anyone reading this blog has figured that part out – especially if they’ve watched a video of me speaking words from my mouth. I even actually live in Scotland now! But the point of me saying this is: I have a certain preconception of how pancakes should be. And that’s… well. Thick and fluffy, and definitely not like this:

FATGIRLslim | The Exante Diet: Maple Syrup Pancakes

THAT SAID!: they tasted delicious. There was a lovely flavour of maple syrup all through them, and I didn’t have to add anything to them to enjoy them. I usually take maple syrup and butter with my pancakes, but I didn’t have to, with these, because they were already maple-syrup-flavoured.

Just definitely not the kind of pancake that I’m used to.

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†/β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…, alas.

Sausage Mix

FATGIRLslim | The Exante Diet: Sausages

I will straight up admit that I was grossed out by the thought of this before I’d even tried it. I visited a supermarket with my school when I was a kid, and they showed us how to pumped sausagemeat into skins, and while I love eating sausages, I hate handling sausagemeat. It’s just gross.

THAT SAID TAKE TWO!: I made the sausage “meat” into a hamburger patty shape by scooping the made-up mixture into the frying pan and pressing it down with the back of the turner. It cooks wonderfully, and is actually quite crumbly, spicy, and it really tasty.

I’m just disappointed there’s not more to it. GIVE ME MORE! GIVE ME ALL THE SAUSAGE MIX! πŸ™‚

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…/β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… – although ewwwww I’m not touching that stuff with my hands! πŸ˜‰
