Exante Diet Food Range

Exante Diet Food Range
Summer is almost here and that means that I can't cover up in layers upon layers, under a blanket *I'd love to be like that all of the time* and I have come to the realisation that I will have to shed the layers of wool and blankets and wear more weather appropriate clothing especially as the weather in the UK recently has been so sunny and warm! I have never been that happy with my weight/figure and it doesn't help that I adore food and cooking so it was great timing that I was contacted to see if I wanted to try some diet food and meal replacements from Exante Diet

I was kindly sent a range of their products from meals, snacks and shakes, all of which I have tried and I now have mini reviews on. If you want more in depth thoughts or the nutritional information then leave me a comment below and I will reply as soon as I can! 

*Exante Diet Thai Green Curry with Rice Pot Meal 
This is the first item I tried from the range that I was sent and it is definitely one of my favourites! It is Vegetarian Society approved, it is a good source of protein and each pot contains 281 calories. The pot contains soya mince as a vegetarian alternative and I do like soya mince but it does have a mushy texture which combined with the rice makes for a one textured and just mushy meal. However, it is really tasty, a little spicy and it is very filling! Perfect for a work lunch or on the go. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

*Exante Diet Double Chocolate Chip Flavour Cookie
I was excited to try this one as I do have a weakness for cookies but this was quite different to what I thought it would be like - it is very dense and a little bit savoury which I wasn't expecting. The cookie is yummy and it's also very filling but I probably wouldn't want to try this one again. However, it high in protein, fibre and vitamins and minerals so it tastes a bit naughty but it isn't unhealthy. Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.

*Exante Hot Cross Bun Flavoured Bar
I love hot cross buns, so I thought I would love this but I have mixed feelings! The bar has a fudge consistency and texture which I like and it does have a overall nice flavour but I don't think it tastes like hot cross buns - it tastes like fudge with a white chocolate coating. I do like it but I don't think I would want it again; however I think it will appeal to some as it is sweet, fudge like and filling as everything else in the range is. Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.

*Exante Protein Crackers (Dutch Cheese)
I used to eat things like this all the time as a snack as they usually don't contain a lot of calories and you can put whatever toppings you want on them. I really like these they don't contain a lot of calories and they have a mixture of seeds in them such as flaxseeds,  sesame seeds and sunflower seeds. I've been liking these for lunch with cream cheese and salad on them as even though they have cheese inside then you don't really taste it at all. They are filling, tasty and obviously very easy to prepare for a snack or lunch. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

*Exante Curried Sweet Potato Soup
I love sweet potato, it's amazing as an alternative to fries or in a hearty spiced chowder with butternut squash and dill so I was excited to give this one a go. Firstly, I'm not a fan of the packaging, I think it would be better if it was in a tub container. The soup itself really doesn't look appealing at all but it smells so nice and it tastes really good too! It is spicy to me as I can't handle spicy food but it was flavourful too and really filling. Along with the Thai rice pot meal, I'd definitely recommend it. Overall rating: ★★, 5/5.

*Exante Chocolate Orange Meal Replacement Bar 
During high school, for breakfast, I almost always had a breakfast bar/cereal bar as I was usually running late and they are quick and easy and this is pretty much a breakfast bar to me - it would be great on the go, it is perfect for breakfast or lunch and it kind of tastes like a Terry's chocolate orange! Along with the soup and rice pot, I'd also really recommend this bar! It's probably my favourite item from the range that I've tried! Overall rating: ★★, 5/5.

*Exante Flavoured Shakes 
I am not a fan of milkshake drinks or anything like that so I wasn't really excited to try these but the flavours sounded nice, especially the honeycomb flavour! The honeycomb shake smells amazing, like toffee or banoffee ice cream but sadly I'm not a fan - the texture is a bit thick and creamy which I wasn't expecting and it tastes quite artificial. The vanilla flavour is the same sadly. Overall rating: ★★☆☆☆, 2/5. 

Overall, there are some products that I loved such as the soup, crackers, the chocolate orange bar and the rice pot meal which I would definitely recommend and that I'd love to try again but then there are others that I didn't like so much, including the shakes, cookie and hot cross bun bar. I think the products are well worth trying and they have quite a wide range of products to choose from including a fair few vegetarian options! 

Have you tried anything from Exante Diet? Have you tried any diet food brands?
