Supertreats is the brainchild of a mum who noticed the crash and burns effect that sugary treats and chocolate had on her toddler and his friends. Being unable to source a healthier alternative for him she set about developing her own. Chocolate, delicious though it is, contains high levels of both refined sugar and stimulants which can lead to the highs and lows we have all witnessed in our adorable children when they are bouncing off the walls, shortly followed by the inevitable meltdown.
Made from a blend of carob, whole milk and cocoa butter, sweetened with coconut blossom nectar, and containing no refined sugar or stimulants Supertreats are a great alternative to chocolate that we were really impressed with when we tried them before – you can read our full review here. Both kids loved the original two flavours (Silky Milky and Merry Berry) so were really excited to hear that they had added a new flavour to their range.
The latest Supertreats offering is the Cheery Chia bar. Combining organic orange oil and chia seeds in a delightfully crunchy bar it really is delicious and is our new favourite flavour. When we originally reviewed the Supertreats bars the kids managed to scoff them all before I got the chance to try them out as a cooking ingredient. I really wanted to check out how they would cope with being cooked, so this time they were hidden on the top shelf until I had the time to have a play. The result is our Orange, Carob and Chia Seed Biscotti recipe, which contains no added sugar and is perfect for both kids and adults.
