JimJams 83% Less Sugar Spread Snack

I recently was told that I am on the verge of becoming a diabetic so lately I have had to change what I eat in a big way and one of the main things I had to cut from my diet was sugar so that meant cutting out my daily treat of munching on a chocolate bar or two.

So when I received an email to taste and review JimJams newest product of Milk Chocolate Dippers which is a healthier chocolate snack I could not resist. JimJams milk chocolate is 83% less sugar than a normal chocolate spread.

Did you know that most chocolate spreads contain the equivalent of up to 56 cubes of sugar in one standard jar?

JimJams

Kellie and Kevin wanted an alternative healthier treat for their children and so it became their mission to create a chocolate spread that tasted fantastic yet contained a lot less sugar than leading brands (83% less sugar to be precise!) and so JimJams was born.
