Whole Earth Product Review…

I have just been sent this parcel full of yummy Whole Earth products to review.

As a big fan of their Peanut Butter I was really looking forward to trying the chocolate spreads.

Whole Earth began as a little company with big ideas about offering more natural, healthier food over 40 years ago. They believe healthy food should not be a punishment and with natural ingredients you don’t need artificial flavours.

The Whole Earth company food range now includes:

  • Peanut butter
  • Chocolate spreads 
  • Cereals
  • Drinks
  • Snacks
  • Baked beans Ketchup and
  • Coffee alternatives.

The chocolate spread range is Dark Chocolate,Caramel and Chocolate Swirl,Milk chocolate,smooth Hazelnut and Crunchy Hazelnut.

Dark Chocolate:

  • 100% Natural ingredients.
  • Dark chocolate is not something we usually eat in our family but trying to be more healthy it is something we are considering changing too. I am sure if you like dark chocolate you would love this but it’s not yet something I am a really big fan of…..

Crunchy Hazelnut:

  • 100% Natural Ingredients.
  • Now this is more to my liking, I love the taste of this and I could imagine the smooth hazelnut one would be even tastier

Caramel and Chocolate swirl:

  • 100% Natural ingredients.
  • Wow love this,possibly my favourite one of all. Sweet,very sweet (although still natural) just how I like it and the kids love this one too 🙁 in fact I am starting to think maybe they like it too much as this disappears every time I go into the kitchen.).

I love chocolate spread on:
1.) Cinnamon Raisin Bagels.
2.) Thick Uncut Bread.
3.) Digestive Biscuit.
4.) Cream Cracker.



The Peanut butter range is Original Crunchy,Original Smooth,Organic Crunchy,Organic Smooth.


I tried a rival peanut butter a few years ago as my husband liked it as a child. However I found it far too sweet sugary and sickly. So never put it in the shopping trolley again.

When I saw the new Whole Earth Peanut butter on the shelf when shopping with my husband I said “go on then we will give it a go”

Although I had no intention of trying it. After it was in our cupboard for a few days, I tried a small amount on my finger and surprisingly loved it from the first taste.

It tasted so yummy not too sugary!! It hit all the buttons, I have loved it ever since.

 All the family now have it and even my eldest son who is a fitness fanatic raves about the ingredients and the health benefits and calls it a “super food”.

I had not tried the nutty one until this and I really think it tastes better than the smooth one.

I love peanut butter on:1.)Toast.
2.) Bread.
3.) Pieces of apple.

I also made some yummy peanut butter cookies from the crunchy one this weekend….

Warm peanut butter cookies
What you need:

  • 100g Chocolate
  • 115 g crunchy peanut butter
  • 75g butter or margarine
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 115g self raising flour

Method:
1.) Pre-heat oven to 180c/gas 4
2.) Grease two baking trays
3.) Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
4.) In a different bowl mix the peanut butter ,butter and brown sugar together,then mix the egg in by using a wooden spoon,stir in the chocolate and sive the flour in and cream all the mixture together.
5.)Place 24 spoonfuls of the mixture onto you baking trays and cook for 12 minutes or until golden brown…

Leave until cooler lovely warm or wait until fully set…

And their Organic Sparkling drinks are

 Cola,Elderflower,,Lemonade,Ginger

Cranberry and Apple & Raspberry.

We got to try the Lemonade and the Cola….

Love the taste of these and the lemonade taste very different to lemonde that I have tasted before but in a good way…

How do you eat your chocolate spread or peanut butter I love finding new things to try

As a runner I have heard a lot about peanut butter jelly or jam sandwiches being good for you..

Something I will be trying next!! mmmm
