Trick yourself!

I have a little trick I've just discovered! I bought some of the Arnotts Mint Slice balls a while back because I love Choc Mint ANYTHING, but I wouldn't be satisfied with just one biscuit.

1 serving (20g, 10 balls) of Arnotts Mint Slice balls = 428kJ
1.25 Arnotts Mint Slice biscuit = 422kJ

Which would you rather eat? 1 1/4 biscuits or 10 cute little balls which you can suck on and let the mintiness dissolve in your mouth?! They also have the Tim Tam Balls:

1 serving (20g, 10 balls) of Arnotts Tim Tam balls = 440kJ
1.1 Arnotts Tim Tam biscuit = 447kJ

I don't know how they've done it, but it sure helps when you want something sweet and chocolately without going over your kilojoule limit!!

sounds like you have found a nice treat there Em.....it would certainly take longer to eat 10 balls than 1 little bikkie!! The kj content is good too...for all you calorie nuts out there (like me) it is 101 Calories....less than a milkyway!!

Yeah they're beautiful Ally!! Feels like a real treat and I take so long to eat them :D But yeah I guess definitely not good for someone who can't stop at 10 balls :(
