Also, according to a recent article from Globe and Mail, many are starting to eat them as like snacks as well to my surprise. I agree that it is not a wise idea in the long run or on a regularly basis in substituting for main meals but as snacks once in a while to satisfy your snack urge (and for the fun factor), why not? haha
Heinz Pureed Pumpkin, Potato & Beef was the first flavor I tried. So how did it taste? Let me start with the smell. It smells WONDERFUL! A strong hint of beefy aroma and hint of pumpkin scent. Use your imagination and maybe you can small the potato but I could not. Texture was mushy just like mashed potatoes but slightly thinner. Taste wise it really tasted nothing like what it smelled! It was very bland on the first bite but gradually grew richer after a few spoonful. I think it would taste better if it was served warm.
After this "heavy" main course, it was time for something sweet! Please welcome Organic Baby Prunes & Oats. It actually smelled like prunes! It was relatively liquid, less mushy than the pureed pumpkin, potato and beef. I could not taste any oats in there, the sweetness of the prunes dominated the overall flavors. It seemed to be fruity but this tiny bottle contains 38g (out of 113g) of carbohydrate and 19g of sugar. Well, does it make much of a difference to me with the nutrition contents? Not really, the key is whether I enjoyed the meal.
Among the two flavors I tried today, I preferred the Prunes and Oats as snack replacement because of the sweetness. Judge it for yourself and give them both a try. More to come within the next few days! By the end of this special detox session I will see how many kg / lbs I have lost ... hopefully!
