Review: Kiddilicious crunchy nibbles

L is a very fussy eater and I always try to find something new to see if I can push it a little bit further.  
For the past couple of weeks we have been trying Kiddilicious crunchy peas and sweetcorn nibbles and crunchy grape nibbles suitable from 12 months (£0.60p. individual pack in selected supermarkets- Asda, Tesco, Boots).

We have started with crunchy peas and sweetcorn as it's something L would never consider eating. 

"Peas and sweetcorn freeze dried into melt-in-your-mouth nibbles
We take tasty, colourful peas and sweetcorn and then simply take out the water to give a light, melty texture that dissolves easily in the mouth. 100% veggies with absolutely nothing else added".

 I didn't know what I expected to see, I guess that they will look completely different, that L would be so confused by what it is that would enjoy eating it. But in reality crunchy peas and sweetcorn were a dryer, smaller,lighter in colour and texture version of sweetcorn and peas as we know them, which put L off from wanting to taste them at all. She has tried to nibble on sweetcorn but peas completely put her off. We had several attempts and only one successful, but I guess the more I try the more accepting she could be.

With crunchy grapes though we had a completely different reaction. 

"Grapes freeze dried into melt-in-your-mouth slices
We take tasty, colourful grapes and then simply take out the water to give a light, melty texture that dissolves easily in the mouth. 100% fruit with absolutely nothing else added".
At first she wasn't sure what it was and played with it scattering dried grapes on the kitchen floor, the next day L was hungrier and more adventurous and had few grapes at a time. To make it easier for toddlers to crunch on grapes without chocking Kiddilicous pre-cut grapes into halves which is a great help. As always I have tried crunchy grapes myself, I personally would add them to a yogurt or similar but L didn't mind them as they were.

Even thought 1 pack is deemed to be used at once I have noticed that L prefers to have a little bit and leaves the rest for another day, which is a little bit impractical if you are on the go as the contents will go everywhere, that's the only downside I have found.

  1. Oh I haven't seen these, they sound really interesting #triedtested

  2. We have just tried the crunchy peas & Sweetcorn this afternoon, I didn't hold out much hope of the kids liking them as they usually fuss over the fresh variety but they loved them, I had a taste too and they are very tasty.

  3. We tried the peas & sweetcorn this afternoon but my son wasn't keen, he tried them and refused to eat anymore! The grapes he said were nicer but I'm not sure I would buy them again! Think I'll stick with the crispy tiddlers next time, their his fave! #triedtested
