It's always a great day when a sweet freebie arrives through the letterbox and we were delighted to get this nice one from Jim Jams arrive recently.
The flavour we received was Jim Jams Hazelnut & Milk Chocolate Spread but they have other flavours in their product range, including Dark Chocolate Orange, Milk Chocolate, and Dark Hazelnut Choc. They also have milk chocolate dippers, crunchy breadsticks that you dip into tummy milk chocolate spread.
We peeled open our free sample and tucked in with fingers - yummy and can tell you that their product is just as good as other leading brands of chocolate spreads, only Jim Jams contains 83% less sugar than their rivals, some of which use the equivalent of up to 56 cubes of sugar in one standard jar.
Jim Jams chocolate spreads contain no added sugar. Instead, they use the natural plant-based sweetener, Maltitol to deliver the sweet flavour consumers expect, while also being very low in calories and kinder to teeth. Plus, Jim Jams chocolate spreads contain no chemicals, preservatives, or artificial flavours.
Smooth hazelnut chocolate spread which contains no added sugar and has less than half the calories of sugar but tastes just as good as other major chocolate nut spreads on the market.
What is Maltitol?
Derived from corn or wheat, Maltitol is a natural plant based sweetener that has nearly half the calories than sugar, is much kinder on teeth and is suitable for diabetics - consumption has little or no effect on blood sugar levels. Maltitol is safe and has been approved by both the EU and FDA in the United States.

How did we get this free sample?
This free sample was sent in to us in mid March and we quickly applied for it but before we could add it to the site, all the samples had run out.
We thought it would run out very quickly, because who doesn't love a sweet treat? If it ever comes back, we will be sure to get it posted on the site right away so that as many of you can apply for it as possible.
This is just another reason why you need to be super quick when applying for free stuff online. The demand for free samples is so high that they never hand around for too long.
