Nothing But Snacks & National Vegetarian Week 2015

Nothing But Snacks & National Vegetarian Week 2015
This week is National Vegetarian Week (18 - 24 May 2015) and Nothing But are sponsoring the occasion. I am proud to say that I have not eaten meat for 20 years. My parents saw it as a teenage rebellion but I owe my education in all things animal cruelty to the late Dame Anita Roddick, Founder of The Body Shop. I remember spending my weekends in stores signing petitions and buying up their products. I think the decision to stop eating meat was a natural process driven by awareness.

Nothing But* is a freeze dried fruit or vegetable snack that count towards one of your five a day. They are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans (Vegetarian Society UK Approved), Gluten free and under 80 calories per pack. There is no added fat, salt, sugar, artificial colours or preservatives.

Nothing But Snacks Strawberry & Banana Freeze Dried
I have sampled Beetroot & Parsnip, Strawberry & Banana and Pineapple & Grape. Before opening the packet I was a little wary but once I saw that they actually just looked like shrunken pieces of fruit/vegetables I dived straight in. I enjoyed all three varieties and although slightly cautious of the fruit I didn't have any problems in terms of my OAS (Oral Allergy Syndrome). 

A list of stockists are available on the website (linked above). I did spot them in Wholefoods Kensington and if memory is correct they were about £1.19 a bag, which seems a bit expensive but I guess you could argue comparable to other healthy snacks.

  1. They are expensive but I like that they are freeze dried locking in all of their vitamins. I think it's very handy to have in your handbag as a snack or sugar boost especially as chocolate can melt and make a mess. Hmm I better count my pennies...
