A Happy New Year to all!!
The team at Bah Humbugs hope you had a fun and festive Christmas and welcomed 2017 in with fireworks and champagne!!
At this time of year many people take a look at their lifestyle and resolve to improve things in the year to come. We at Bah Humbugs are no different and, despite being in the business of supplying delicious traditional sweets and treats to the nation, we also understand the need to maintain a balanced and healthy diet.
Following a good investigation of our products we have come up with a list of sweets that you can fit into a healthy way of life without suffering the pangs of guilt for falling off the sweet wagon! So, hold on to your resolve by all means, but have a quick look at the list to see if anything takes your fancy! We would always recommend that you consume your treats in moderation, and so everything on this list we would advise you work out a plan to fit them in with the rest of your balanced diet...
Chocolate Covered Treats
We have a range of delicious treats wrapped in a chocolate coating.... raisins, peanuts, brazil nuts and crystallised ginger, all of which are good for you and, if you add them into your treat allowance, they may just help you stay on the straight and narrow by giving you a little boost!
Our mint and humbug range is extensive and we've included them in this list as they are so refreshing and give you a little sugar boost when you need one, especially if you've reduced your intake in other areas. We would suggest a variety to use as after dinner mints so they become part of your meal rather than a sweet for the sake of eating one. We have delicious mint crumbles, buttermint bonbons, classic mint imperials, golden humbugs, stripey humbugs, mintoes, spearmint chews and many more! Dinner guests will also appreciate these on the table to finish off their meal.
Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
If you're into 'bean counting' or calorie counting then why not try a mix of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. You can count out your allowance and eat them whenever you want! Each Jelly Belly Jelly Bean is 4 calories, so you can have 25 beans for just 100 calories! Whether you're with a slimming club or just counting your calories most people can squeeze 100 calories out of their daily calorie allowance for a treat, so we think this a great one for those managing their daily intake.
There are many claims of health benefits from liquorice, including soothing gastrointestinal problems - a common issue after so much overindulgence in December! It is also thought to help cleanse the respiratory system - something that we could all do with to keep the winter colds at bay. Liquorice may help relieve stress by balancing cortisol levels in the adrenal gland. Now, although we don't have the medical evidence to prove these claims, liquorice has been used for millennia as a health supplement, so who are we to argue?
There will be many of you who have decided to reduce your sugar intake, either for specific health reasons, or as a general improvement of your diet. If this is you, then we have a lovely range of sugar free sweets, including some traditional favourite flavours such as Sherbet Lemons, Rhubarb & Custards, Chocolate Eclairs, Spearmints Chews and many more.
In summary, whatever your plan for the New Year for your health and well-being, remember that you can build treats into it. Check out our website http://www.bahhumbugs.com/ for ideas, and if you have any questions then drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org
With our best wishes for a happy, healthy and fun filled 2017, from all at Bah Humbugs xx
