Gregory's Tree Fruit Twists - Front Packaging

 

Please note: our Gregory’s Tree Fruit Twists were received free of charge, but this in no way impacted on our opinion. We were not obliged to write a positive review, and the brand did not see this review before it was put up on the site.

 

I’m sure you’ve all experienced “the dip” before. Whether it’s a mid-morning slump, a 3pm battle to keep focused or an early evening internal debate over whether to just call it a night at 8pm, a dip in energy can lead to our brains telling us that we need to boost our energy levels – and fast.

The problem is, a lot of the time that might involve a strong coffee or a sugary treat – or, in this current period of lockdown, whatever we can grab first from the kitchen cupboards. While it certainly works to give us a boost, it’s perhaps not the healthiest way of doing it…and can also lead to a similar slump an hour or two later once that short-term energy boost has worn off.

Gregory’s Tree created their Fruit Twists to combat this very problem. Made using pure organic fruit and without any gluten, dairy, GM or nuts, each pack of two twists is just 60 calories. The natural fructose these twists contain also offer sustained energy – unlike refined sugar-based sweet snacks, which are just empty calories with no nutritional value.

They’re available in two different flavours – strawberry, and blueberry & raspberry – and they’re available in a box of five packs (each containing two twists) for £2.99, or 24 packs for £11.60 via Amazon – and you’ll also find them in Morrisons and Whole Foods. I left the true taste test to the real snack connoisseur in our household – my two-year-old. He’s a snack fiend, and I’m always on the lookout for healthy options that’ll keep him going until his next mealtime.

Each individual package could be easier to open, but they’re perfect for popping into a pocket, handbag or changing bag for when you’re out and about. Once opened, they certainly look appealing too: glossy, deeply coloured twists with a strong fruit smell from the outset.

Texture-wise, I was expecting them to be pretty chewy, but they’re actually fairly solid. Considering there’s no refined sugar in these at all, they’re incredibly sweet – making them a great alternative to a bag of sweets for both adults and children alike.

The strawberry flavour was more recognisable than the blueberry & raspberry, which had more of a generic berry flavour. They were wolfed down by Oscar, though – who has now started asking me for “fruity snacks” in the afternoons when he’s peckish…

Working out at around 50-60p for a pack of two twists, depending on which size multipack you go for, Gregory’s Tree Fruit Twists are priced pretty reasonably compared with other healthy snacking options. I’ll definitely be buying them for the toddler!
