Levi Roots Caribbean Snack Pots Review*

Lunches are something I've struggled with for a while now, especially with working from home. I just lack inspiration when it comes to finding something exciting each day and sometimes I tend to repeat the same thing over and over and then I can't even face it the next week! Because I've been struggling to find something tasty and filling for lunch recently, I was thrilled when Levi Roots got in touch and asked if I'd like to try out their new range of Caribbean Snack Pots!

I was already a fan of Levi Roots other products, their original reggae reggae sauce is a favourite of ours to go with meals and I also love their instant marinades so I was really intrigued to see what the snack pots would be like. These have been created to spice up our lunchtimes, exactly what I need! There are 4 flavours, all packed with Caribbean spices that contain natural, wholesome ingredients, low levels of salt and sugar and they're also suitable for vegetarians too. I was sent each of the 4 flavours to try out so let me tell you what I thought of each one.

Reggae Reggae Noodles

The first pot I tried was the Reggae Reggae Noodles. I've never been a huge, huge fan of other brands like this but I was excited to see if these would be different, and they really were! I was pleasantly surprised to see the noodles were quite thin so cooked a lot quicker and the sauce wasn't watery in anyway. The BBQ flavour with subtle tomato and notes of allspice, thyme and scotch bonnet was perfect. Whilst spicy it definitely wasn't overpowering and it was far more filling than I expected it to be.

Rasta Pasta

I was a little sceptical of how the Rasta Pasta pot would be because I've had things like in the past and I find they always tend to be quite watery and plain tasting but I ended up really enjoying this pot! With mild spice, this pot contains chilli, pimento, nutmeg, cassia, parsley and basil. It was unlike any pasta pots I'd tried before as the sauce thickened really well, the pasta cooked perfectly and it had such a lovely flavour.

Caribbean Coconut Rice

I'm such a carb queen and anything with rice is usually a winner for me but this ended up being my least favourite of all the snack pots. That doesn't mean it's bad at all as it's not that there is anything wrong with it, the coconut flavour just isn't what I would usually go for. The Caribbean rice which contains an infusion of coconut milk, black pepper and chilli reminded me quite a lot of Thai red curry which I'm really not a fan of so it makes sense that this wouldn't be my fave, but I do think if you like meals like that, then this would be great for you.

Curry Noodles

As I loved the Reggae Reggae noodles so much, I was really keen to try the Curry Noodles. These have an aromatic blend of turmeric, chilli, coriander and fennel, mixed with onion, garlic and parsley which give this pot the fragrant taste of the Caribbean. I actually think I preferred these to everything else, the flavour was incredible, not too hot but had a nice kick. They were really filling and like with the Reggae Reggae noodles, the sauce consistency was perfect and they were just incredibly tasty.

Aswell as loving the taste of these pots, I also love the colourful packaging. They are quite clearly part of the Levi Roots brand and I'd be drawn to them straight away in a store. The pots are really decent sized and as I've said already, incredibly filling, which for a snack pot you might not usually find. I've been enjoying these as lunch or as a snack when I'm feeling a little hungry in the afternoon and they've been great to have in ready to grab. Another thing I love is how easy they are to prepare too, fab for when you're busy either at work or at home and can't find a spare moment to make anything. Just pop the kettle on and in 5 minutes, your delicious snack pot is ready to enjoy.

I was so impressed with this range so I definitely recommend keeping an eye out for them in future. I'm going to pick up a few more to have in ready for days when I just don't have time but need something tasty for lunch. All 4 of these Levi Roots snack pots are currently available at Costcutter, Nisa and selected Spar stores, and you can find out more on the Levi Root website.
