Go Go’s Full of Beans Review
New at various outlets and supermarkets are these mini snack trays featuring Cheese cubes, Beans, Peas and even chocolate covered coffee beans and contain 12.5g of protein per pack.
The first section contains a savoury mix of Spicy Chilli & Lime Peas and Edamame Beans and are lime toasted and crunchy to the bite. They tastes slightly salty at first and then comes the lime flavour and spicyiness at the end but they’re really really tasty. They have a great all round salt and spice mix of flavours and the texture is fantastic. I know many other products like the Graze snacks have salty or not so good tasting beans but these are very snackable.
Next is the cheese mini cubes(about 8 in all) and taste like average cheese so we’ll move on but they do give a good contrasting taste when mixed with the beans and peas.
The last section is the sweet mix and contains chocolate covered coffee beans(about 8) and salted biscuits. As soon as you lift the re-sealable seal you get a nice whiff of coffee and chocolate. The biscuits are like pretzels but without the saltiness and they have remnants of the coffee beans in the background taste. The choco coffee beans are surprisingly soft to the bite but filled with a fantastic coffee and chocolate burst of flavour, none of them overwhelming and too strong but instead a great tone of taste, a great infusion.
Overall I really like this mix of flavours and it contains a fair amount, enough to share without getting angry plus I love the re-sealable cover. What I don’t like is the price. At £1 (which it is on offer at now) I wouldn’t think twice but at £1.50 I’m unsure and looking at other options.
