This has to be my favorite again very sweet which I love sweet things,I had to take a break while eating it,Again this was very well made and I would eat this and recommend to anyone. I think when I buy some I will eat with ice cream.
We also got a couple of drinks,
"Tuvunu" Greek Mountain tea with Honey & lemon.
Greek Mountain Tea or “Sideritis” is one of the most aromatic and beneficial indigenous herbs of the Mediterranean. Here at Tuvunu we decided to make it available for the very first time as a healthy, all natural ready to drink beverage that can be enjoyed throughout the year, cold or hot, anywhere in the world.
So we combined the wisdom of Hippocrates with one of our grandmothers’ favorite recipes that was typically boiled and enjoyed hot in the winter, to create a new healthy beverage that can be enjoyed during the summer: Iced Greek Mountain Tea with fresh squeezed lemons, wildflower honey and brown sugar that’s ready to drink anytime, anywhere. That’s Tuvunu!
This is a really lovely refreshing drink and normally I do not like any kind of tea drink but on tasting this I am a tea convert,there is really nothing bad to say about it and all I can say is try it for yourself you will enjoy it.
Tasty, original but most of all refreshing! Green Cola is a new proposal for Cola, addressed to all, even to those with special dietary habits (eg diabetics) looking for a product with minimal caloric cost, without sacrificing the taste result.
I really enjoyed this is certainly tasted different but very nice I want to buy this in the future.
So these are only a tiny selection of the products available and I would advise/recommend you head over to Their website and check out everything they have.
I will be buying from them in the future.
