Review: Organix's Goodies

It was lovely to find out we would be testing and reviewing some goodies from Organix, we was looking forward to receiving the parcel from our postman pat.


When the box arrived I sat Alesha on my knee as we opened it together and she had a huge smile of excitement on her face, wondering what's inside the box! The photo below shows the goodies the lovely people at Organix us.

Simplicity of the products (Maize Snacks)
The packets are simple in design but colourful and attractive enough to have the 'wow' factor for a young imagination.
The maize snacks were not too big for Alesha's little hands, she found them easy to hold and their wasn't a problem with her shooving them in her mouth. After she got the taste of the first one it didn't take her long to try and get as many in her hands as she can. These would be very handy when out and about to enjoy as a snack.There is no need to be worried about the salt and fat levels because, these snacks contain a third less salt and fat than in most children's snacks.

Simplicity of the products (Squeezy)
Alesha really enjoyed the Mango, Pear & Orange squeezy, to the point where she whinged when she heard me say 'last spoonful'!
Alesha wasn't too sure about squeezing it, she got a fright with the first one as too much came out so we decided to put it into a bowl. I must admit they smelled yummy so I couldn't resit having a spoonful and it tasted as good as it smelt! Each pouch contains 100% organic fruit with absolutely no artificial ingredients
There was no lumps of fruit, just simply smooth like a fruit smoothie.

Simplicity of the products (Gingerbread Men)
We know as soon as we saw these that they would go down a treat with Alesha as she loves biscuits. 
She was all happy when Andrew took them out of the box and gave her one in each hand, don't think she could wait to get started on them!
She ate the 2 of them no problem, she really enjoyed them, she washed them down with a drink of water and was a happy bunny afterwards. I was really pleased with these because they are made with wholegrain flour and sweetened with grape juice and no nasty sugar to harm her little pegs. 
These didn't break up easy and crumble which would of ment a huge mess, so less cleaning afterwards.

Availability (Gingerbread Men)
These can be purchased from a wide range of shops, supermarkets and online. You can find them in Sainbury's for £1.75, also on Organix's online shop they have them for £1.99. This box contained 15 gingerbread men but how about a gingerbread men tin and that contains 30 (the tin would be great to use afterwards, they do a box which contains 5 packs of mini gingerbread men,now that would be ideal for lunchboxes or to pop in bag when going out.


Positive's
  • Don't crumble very easy
  • Great price
  • No additives and no sugar
Negative's
  • Never found any negative's

Simplicity of the products (Banana Date Fruit Bars)
I was happy when I seen we got these to review as she has had the apple date ones before and love them.
The banana date bar certainly did tickle Alesha's taste-buds, I unwrapped it and handed it to her, didn't take long before it was gone and she was moaning for more. It's great to know that she enjoyed these because, they are made from 100% organic fruit and contain no artificial ingredients and no added sugar or concentrates. 
They are a great alternative to sweets and chocolate bars.

Simplicity of the products (Cereal Oaty Bars)


A very healthy product, as are the rest of the Organix's range. These contain 100% organic ingredients, the one in the photo that Alesha is enjoying is the apple & orange. They are packed full of healthy wholegrain oats and juicy raisins, so they're a good source of fibre. Alesha really enjoyed these, it was lovely to see her happy face enjoying them. The only problem I found was, they are very messy, a little bite and you have a mess as the oaty bar falls apart easily.


Availability (Cereal Oaty Bars)

These can be purchased from a wide range of shops, supermarkets and online, you can find them on Boots website for a box of 6 
£2.34.On Organix's site for 
£2.25 is also a box containing 6 bars.

The cereal bars come in 5 flavours, apple & orange, coca & raisin, raspberry & apple, blackcurrant and also carrot cake.



Positive's

  • Choice of more than one flavour
  • Good source of fibre

Negative's

  • Crumble and cause a mess very easily
