With 83% less sugar than other hazelnut chocolate spreads can JimJams spread really taste as good? The answer is a big yes! You’d never know that it had so much less sugar as it’s just as sweet and tasty. 

The chocolate spread has a great texture that makes it easy to spread on toast or bread. It is lovely and creamy with a yummy hazelnut and chocolate taste. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, so personally I’d prefer it a little less sweet, but that’s just a personal preference. My friend tried some on toast while she was visiting and she loved it, the sweetness level was just right for her.

You can use this spread in lots of different ways, it is very versatile. I like it on bread or toast, but my favourite way to eat it was on some pancakes I made with some strawberries. It was very yummy! This was a special weekend treat for me, but because there is so much less sugar in this spread, it was still quite a healthy breakfast.

I’m quite active and I’m currently studying for my black belt in karate, so I like to eat healthily to stay fit. The chocolate spread was a lovely treat and gives me the energy I needed to get through a busy day at school or at karate training. 

As well as using JimJams as a spread, I also used it to make a scrummy chocolate and hazelnut milkshake. It really was lovely! I didn’t know that you could use chocolate spread to make things like this, so I was very pleased that JimJams sent me some recipes to try.

I’m sure that this spread would be very popular with both children and adults. Parents will love it as it’s an easy way to cut down on the amount of sugar their children eat. I’d prefer it to be less sweet, which is why I’ve given it four stars, but my friend said she would give it five stars - so maybe we should call it four and a half stars! I’d like to try the chocolate version without the hazelnuts as I think I’d prefer this flavour, Mum has promised to get me some to try. 

I’d definitely recommend this spread, especially if you have a sweet tooth.
