Taste test: AntiOx chocolate

AntiOx Chocolate

I recently had the good fortune of taste testing AntiOx Chocolate. I really enjoyed the Acai blend which claims to be very high in antioxidants. Any true chocoholic will sing the virtues of their vice, including myself. The chocolate bar was 70% cocoa and sweetened with Stevia. I am usually not a big fan of stevia products because sometimes they are overpowering, but they have got the balance right this time. I happily scoffed the whole bar in a couple of days.

The blocks come in Goji berries and Acai flavours, which are both powerful superfoods. AntiOx Chocolate have a RRP $4.65 for an 80g block. They also come in 40g snack bars based on wholegrains and superfoods. All products are available in the health section of Woolworths, Coles, IGA stores and health food stores.

Tomato twinkies

I predict that heirloom tomatoes will become a food trend some day soon, similar to how sun-dried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar were a few years ago. A couple sells heirloom tomatoes at the local markets and that’s where we were introduced to all the different flavours and colours. They can range from peachy yellow ones to ugly black flecked sweet ones.

Tomato twinkies are a family favourite and something I fondly remember eating with my dad after school. I haven’t a clue if anyone else calls them that. It’s important to use real butter and home-grown tomatoes. A few years ago, I changed the version slightly to Jatz biscuits with mozzarella cheese, cherry tomatoes and torn basil. Either way they’re still the best snack.
