    – Hello everyone, I'm Mike, this is Baz Welcome to fridge cam – Now, everybody loves to snack – Especially if your name is Jamie Spafford – And in today's episode, we explore healthy snacking food trends and see if they're any good

    – Disclaimer, this video contains some shocking food puns (upbeat music) – You guys evidently enjoy and keep asking us to review certain products This is our first look at a handful of them I've picked a number of "healthy" snacking products – For today, we've got our chef James and a normal, Mike, to test out these products

    – I don't know if I even unhealthily snack, except for maybe some chocolate in the evening – I get really hungry between meals so I have to think about what I'm gonna snack, otherwise I'm just gonna eat bad stuff – But you're thiccer than me, like two Cs, thiccer than me – Yeah – So

    – What, booty-wise? – Well, just everything, like, (Barry laughs) pick a muscle, you're thicker than me at it (upbeat music) – Number one Lift the cloche Should say straight off, snacking may also include drinks – (laughs) Can you snack on a coffee? – Food and beverage that you might consume outside of meal times

    – Okay, okay – Caveats already It's a very small packet There's not a lot going on in there – This packet here is only filled up to there

    – There's a gram – Oh, it says one g on it, doesn't it? – Yeah, it's a gram – I thought you were doing that by weight (laughing) – [James] I am a chef – I thought wow, he can literally feel grams

    – [Barry] It's Columbian roasted coffee powder with added red ginseng from Korea – It's coffee and additives – The additive being ginseng, which has been used for hundreds of years in Chinese medicine and they claim to have a number of health benefits And by adding it to your coffee, will give you the vitality you need for the day Ginseng is a root and if it's grown for up to four years, it's fresh

    If it's between four and six years, it's white If it's six years or more in terms of how long it's grown, then it is red, and that is therefore the premium Would you like to make one? – Yes, please – Yeah – [Mike] So this is what it looks like

    – [James] It smells slightly fruity (upbeat music) – So it's not huge in flavour It tastes earthy I wouldn't say it tastes like coffee, would you? – I like it more than instant coffee – Yeah, it's much nicer than instant coffee

    – It tastes like more like tea – All right Doctor Barry, tell us the health benefits – Well before I do that, can I just double check, are you feeling anything at all? You have any, any effects on you? – You are not a real doctor, are you? – I'm feeling a lot of love – Okay, so it's shown to have antioxidant properties that could help improve brain functions And but also the one that jumped out to me is it can enhance blood flow in the penile muscles

    – That's the love I felt (laughing) – [Barry] Yeah, so it can strengthen your immune system in people with cancer and even enhance the effects of certain vaccinations – And as with all these products, we're not making any health claims, we're just sharing what the product is, what they claim to do and look at what those ingredients are – It tastes fine – I don't think I would drink it for enjoyment

    – Red coffee, on the rise? Or a bit of a flop? – What that, what? – No peeking! (laughing) – Honestly, I could see this being a thing – I don't think people will, but at the same time, I don't think it's a flop As a product, it's fine – I think it's on the rise, – Have a chat, – come to a discussion – You think it's not fully floppy but like somewhere in the middle? – It's like a semi

    – [Mike] There you go (laughing) (upbeat music) – [Ben] You've had your morning stimulus, this is the next one – High protein brot It's a multi-seed loaf in a cup – Is it, oh, is it bread? No way

    – And it's 25% superfoods – That is a claim – [Ben] This is microwave bread in a mug High protein, 25% superfood and vegan Fast, substantial, tasty

    – I am fascinated about this I don't know about it from a health perspective But bread in a mug, if it's good, like cool – [Ben] This particular thing provides you with 23 grams of protein per hundred – So you put the powder in, 75 mls of water

    Oh, it's really banana-y – It's really banana-y Give it a stir, and then in the microwave for how long? – Three minutes (timer beeping) – [Mike] It hasn't risen – [James] It looks a little bit sad

    – Flop it Ta-da – [Mike] It's very bouncy isn't it? – [James] Yeah, it's just like a dense bread Like a soda bready type – [Mike] It is like a soda bread isn't it? – It looks better on the inside than it did on the outside

    – Seedy, bready, really nice Cheers – Cheers – Instantly you get banana, don't you? That's the first thing – Oh yeah that hits you, so it's very banana-y bread

    Then I just get crunches of seeds – It's actually quite nice – Yeah – I'm super surprised – It's dense

    It's stodgy – It would benefit from something – They say it goes with anything So sweet breakfast with honey and jam, noon as a side dish with soup or salad, or for dinner with a hearty topping of cheese, egg, ham, and the alike – Absolutely

    – It's honestly not bad – 20 grams of protein in this is actually quite a lot So if you're looking for something high protein, sort of lowish carbs I guess that fills you up and it's tasty in under five minutes, then I'd say this is brilliant – You can keep it in the cupboard – [Mike] Yeah

    – And it's literally like it is instant bread rather than buying six rolls and having some of them go off Come on Ebbers, let's have a good one – Let's have a good one – Is this microwave hello or wave goodbye? (laughing) – That is some of the worst – No, ones we've ever had – No, that's bad

    – Sticking with it – The bread is better than saying microwave hello But it's a wave hello for me – I would also wave hello to this bread (upbeat music) – Lift the cloche

    – [James] Shrivelled fruit – I look at this and I'm underwhelmed Although, – Is this healthy though? Dried fruit is notoriously not healthy – Yes, it's just full of sugar What have we got here? We got dried kiwi and orange

    – [James] Pineapple and orange – Cheers – This is rind Keep it real, eat the peel More fibre, vitamins and nutrients are packed into the edible outside than the flesh of the fruit alone but comparative to salty, sugary, fried snacks, this is a fairly sensible option

    – [Barry] How does the rind taste? – The kiwi is like eating sour sweets – Yeah, tangy – In a good way – The orange is like marmalade It's bitter, so it's not just a hit of sugar, Which is really nice

    It's got all sorts of stuff going on I like it And there's a really chewy nice texture So as a substitute for candy, sweets, things like that, I can see it really being useful – Provides a sugar hit, but I'd have trouble eating the whole pack, which is probably a good thing

    'Cause I think like the trouble with dried fruit is that it is very sugary It's probably good for like getting a sweet hit – Yeah – Instead of something like chocolate – Doctor Barry, could you tell us about the health benefits? – [Barry] So fruit rinds on average contain three to four times the fibre content compared to a serving of flesh alone

    Fibre not only makes a snack more satisfying, but high fibre diets are linked to less heart disease, improved gut health, lower cholesterol, and lower obesity rates – What I particularly like about this one is it's not just the 'inverted commas' healthy benefits, it's also the food waste So the amount of fruit and veg that's thrown away and a lot of that is the peel that we wouldn't normally eat So not only you saving that, which Mother Nature's gone through the effort of grow, you're also getting health benefits of the fibre and the antioxidants – Ask the question

    – Okay then, are you loving the rind? Or should we leave it behind? – I think it's a great product I'm gonna say loving the rind I think the general public might leave it behind, however – Oh, I'm loving the rind I think it's good

    (upbeat music) Oh, what on earth is that? – Oh, it's a little heart on a stick – A TeaPop? What's a TeaPop? – Oh my goodness – This is silly – Mine's lemon and ginger, what flavour is yours? – Mine is passion fruit punch – Gourmet tea, 100% natural tea made easy

    Dissolves in water Each TeaPop is made from natural extraction of all the goodness from loose leaf tea, fruits and plants formed into a crystallised pop to provide the perfect brew in each cup – [Barry] At TeaPop, we believe there is a better way to enjoy quality tea A more easy, fun and fuss-free experience where a consumer can enjoy their favourite brew wherever their heart desires – [Ben] This is a long collaboration with Chester University to create this bag-less tea, and it's supposed to be yeah, fun and an experience

    – Oh, yours smells amazing Mine does not In it goes (upbeat music) Oh – Oh, it goes fast

    – This was a product sent to us by Amanda She thought it would be good for us to have a look at So I bought some – I'm getting the delicious combination of lemon and ginger coming through now That smells amazing

    – I think it tastes nice It's sweet and then ends bitter, soury – The same here You get ginger, not getting a huge amount of lemon, and then it sort of tails off and tastes similar to the bitterness that you get from a loose leaf tea – I think you get the flavours and then you get the tea afterwards

    – Sort of thing I can imagine seeing in a boutique-y hotel there like a, yeah, something a little bit different – It's a gift, isn't it? – It is a bit fun, absolutely – [James] It's 100% a gift for a tea lover – I definitely think it's very Instagram friendly as well And the video we've seen from the brand, you know, the videos look good because of the shapes before and the process of stirring

    What about if I told you that each one works out at one pound 50? – Oh, that is – [Ben] So nine pounds for that tube – [James] 100% one off gift – That pricing for me is just a complete turn off – Would you pop it like it's hot? Or drop it like it's not? – Yes! – Oh no! We're back! Well done mate, that is cracking! I would drop it like it's not

    – I would also drop it like it's not We see a lot of these things that are good products, but just unnecessary (upbeat music) – [Ben] The fifth and final one for today – Are they nuts? – They're nuts covered in cacao – They are exactly that

    Nuts covered in cacao But I want to know what nut? – Interesting, 'cause I was instantly gonna say brazil nut – It looks like a cross between a brazil nut and an almond – Vogue called it the delicious healthy nut you've never heard of – It tastes like a praline

    – Wow, and they are delicious It just melts in your mouth, it melts away – They are crunchy, but then as soon as you sort of crack 'em, they just dissolve into deliciousness – I think the closest nut would be a macadamia nut This is a naughty snack

    This is not healthy – This can't be healthy – So these are called pili nuts – [James] Pili – [Mike] Pili

    – [Barry] They're used in Filipino cooking They're often added to cooking and baking in its roasted form They give a sweet, bitter flavour and a velvety texture – The pili nut is grown on trees in the nutrient rich soil surrounding the Mount Mayon volcano This is a healthy snack product that has four ingredients

    Pili nuts, Ecuadorian cacao, yes, it has salt, and yes, it has sugar But it is the nut that is kind of the focal point here, albeit the other ingredients are well-sourced too – That deserved the Great Taste Three-Star Award from 2018 that it was awarded, 'cause they taste amazing They're sprouted nuts, which we know activation means that you get all the nutrients within them So I can see how its made the H word

    – They are absolutely delicious – It tastes like it should be really high in sugar – That's the thing, like it's a genuine substitute to a chocolate bar – You get the sweetness that you're looking for – The other thing that is important here is it is complete protein, so all of your essential amino acids provided

    One of the highest sources of magnesium, and also really high in phosphorus, which is good for bone health Considered second most important behind calcium – That's genuinely new to me, and I really like those They are delicious, and they taste like they should be far worse for you (laughing) – So they are very, very difficult to get hold of in the UK

    And I think this comes to why they haven't really scaled and they're new to us is because of where they're grown and they are difficult to scale However, I picked up those bags in LA, when we were last there And they were about $4 a bag – That's how much I expected it to be – Yeah

    – It's not like, jaw-dropping amount – As with all of these, I wouldn't eat them for their health benefits The health benefits are a nice bi-product to them, if they are delicious – Okay then A great product or not? – Or not? – Nut, nut

    – Or nut? – It's all in the delivery! – Wow, we've given up haven't we? – It is a great product – Yeah, it's a great, great product And it's completely new to me Really delicious So which of those, if any, do you think will take off? Comment below

    (upbeat music) and now a blooper – We've got Mike and Jamie here, a chef at a normal – This is James – [Ben] That's James – It's only 12 years, mate You were rehearsing in the mirror last night and you didn't expect James instead of Jamie

    (laughing) – Clip that together That's the blooper right there
