Enough chocolate to give feed the chocolate craving and it will fill you up. Metcalfe’s skinny rice cakes mix the perfect balance of wholegrain and white rice for a crisp, light crunch. Each slice is then lovingly coated in a generous layer of dark chocolate.At just 85 calories per serving, what’s not to love!

I absolutely love these mini packs of propercorn – you feel like you are having a wee treat but it is actually full of goodness and not too calorofic! Perfect Stress Snack! Every pack of PROPERCORN is made using the best quality, GM-free corn and It’s also a brilliant source of fibre.

It’s hard to believe that something this tasty can be so good for you! A delicious combination of coconut, macadamias, cashews and whey protein, the Coconut & Macadamia Protein Bliss ball is a great source of high-quality protein that’s easily assimilated by the body. It’s also high in fibre, and tastes amazing. I absolutely love these as a wee snack in the afternoon to make you feel good, look good and fill up.
