NUSH Yoghurts...

Dairy Free Almond Milk Yoghurt from NUSH today... Again, these are the kind of yoghurts I'd use in a dessert rather than breakkie... I'm very intrigued about the hibiscus flavour... I might have to go back and indulge! I took these pics in Tesco but I'm sure a quick google will find you a list of stockists! 
Anyone tried them out? x

Ethica - Oat Yoghurts

OK, I used to work in marketing so I know all the tricks they use to lure us in with packaging and placement... and sure enough when I saw this I fell for it all...  'OOOOOH pretty packaging... it's vegan, no added sugar... might be worth a look...' Nope... Not for me... If you're vegan it might be right up your street or maybe it would be fab as a dessert/custard kinda thing? Also the SPs worked out the same for every flavour which never happens... Any one tried them out? x

Chef Tomato ketchup...

I know a few eye roll at these kinda posts but if you're watching your sugar intake or the amount of salt in your diet, it's kinda handy to know there's brands out there who have different versions of products you like! I'm a huge Chef Tomato Sauce, I'd go as far as to say a Chef Sauce Snob! So when I spot these I buy them to have in the cupboard... SmartPoints wise you're not going yo break the back with either ... Anyone else a fan? Can we start a Club? x

AND made in Ireland and you all know how I love to shop local!

Mayflower Ready Made Sauces...

I'm a huge fan of the Mayflower curry sauce, it's SO handy when you want a quick easy dinner! The southern style gravy is lovely too. So when I spotted these I wondered how they'd do SP wise, a lot of processed sauces have loads of hidden sugars in them... I know a lot of people don't like to make sauces from scratch so I've done these per tub and for 100g which is still a lot for one portion... Anyone tried these? x

Mayflower Chilli Black Bean Sauce
per 100g - 3SP
per 400g tub - 14SP

Mayflower Cantonese Sweet & Sour Sauce
per 100g - 8SP

Fruit-tella 30% less sugar...

OK so I worked out the full sugar versions of both of these and the 30% less sugar isn't that great of a saving to me, and that's purely because I'd give these away with my mother for a bag of cheese and onion crisps! The marketing spin is these are they're 30% less sugar, so you're tempted to pick them over the full sugar version thinking they're better for you and they would be... but there's 15g worth of sweets less in these too... Just a thought... x

Fruit-tella 30% less sugar Strawberry flavour sweets
per 120g bag - 20SP

The full sugar version is 25SP for 120g
but the bag you buy is 135g and 28SP...

Fruit-tella 30% less sugar Summer Fruits flavour sweets
per 120g bag - 20SP

Again the full sugar version is 25SP for 120g 
but the bag you buy is 135g and 28SP...
