I always love discovering new food in my supermarket, especially when it’s either super healthy or very delicious (or both!). In this blog post I’m sharing my 5 favorite new discoveries from the last few weeks. From healthy granola to red velvet chocolate bars; all these products are now for sale and tried and tested by me. Some products are available worldwide, some in Europe and some (unfortunately) only in the Netherlands. I’ve listed the availability with each product. I’d love to hear which ones you’ve already tried or if there are new products that are missing in this blog post!
Dutch breakfast-brand Bolletje has introduced 3 new products. Bolletje is famous for its ‘beschuit’ and also sells Knäckebröd and crackers in Dutch supermarkets. As of this spring they added 3 crunchy mueslis to their assortment. These ‘Krokante Ontbijtgranen’ don’t contain any raffinated sugars (or honey), and are only sweetened with a bit of date. This makes them a a much healthier option than most supermarket granolas, because I absolutely understand that you don’t always have time to make your own homemade granola.
Red Velvet Chocolate
The chocolate brand with the best name in the world ‘Hands off my chocolate‘ has added a new chocolate bar to their family: Red Velvet and White chocolate. This chocolate bar is inspired by the classical Red Velvet Cake and is made with only natural ingredients and real Belgian fair-trade chocolate. The colors are great with a pink bottom and white top. The good thing about this bar is that you don’t have to share it, you can keep everything to yourself as each piece is marked with ‘mine’! I’ve decorated the red velvet cupcake at the top of this page with red velvet chocolate bar crumbles.
You can find the Hands Off my Chocolate in Dutch supermarkets Albert Heijn, Marqt and Jumbo and you can order it online if you live in the Netherlands.
Lakrids is a very special liquorice brand from Johan Bulow from Denmark. They have very special flavors like chocolate coated liquorice with passionfruit or coffee and dark chocolate liquorice. Lakrids has released a limited edition for the summer of 2018. These ‘Bærries’ come in two flavors: Wild Blueberrie and Sea Buckthorn. These two berrie flavors in combination with the chocolate coating are ideal flavors for warm days. Lakrids ships worldwide, order your Lakrids Liquorice here.
Van Eigen Deeg
I discovered these new Van Eigen Deeg cookies in the Dutch Jumbo supermarkets. They’re made by a baker’s daughter from Nijmegen who wanted to let people enjoy in a responsible way. These artisan cookies are made with natural and fair ingredients. And what makes them really unique is that the package is a 100% decomposable! There are four different flavors, pictured are honey-almond and fig-walnut, and you also have chocolate-spelt and cranberry-coconut.
New Tony’s Chocolonely flavor
Last month Tony’s Chocolonely introduced a new temporary flavor: White chocolate with coconut and pineapple. This chocolate bar will be available for 6 months. Even though I normally don’t like white chocolate and I’m not a big fan of coconut flavors; my boyfriend and I devoured this bar in less than an hour. With a tropical touch, it’s a great chocolate bar for summer! Other news from Tony’s Chocolonely; the white chocolate stracciatella bar won the competition for best limited edition bar and will now be added to the standard assortiment. The chocolate bars are for sale at several Dutch supermarkets, the Tony’s Chocolonely Super Store in Amsterdam and online on their website (Tony’s Chocolonely also has a webshop for the United States, but these exclusive bars aren’t for sale there)
