Premium bakery Loaf specialises in handcrafted breads and baked goods. Loved by New Zealanders, it is halal and made with all natural ingredients which are just some of the good qualities that allowed the artisanal bakery brand to expand from New Zealand to Hong Kong and Singapore.
Since Loaf’s Sweet Range will be coming to Singapore, we tried out three of the brand’s Sweet Range Minibites, which are packets of sweet bite sized snacks that vary from brownies, to cookies and even muesli squares. Will it withstand the herworldPLUS taste test?
Okay, we need to start by saying the Brownie Bites serving is generous. The brownie pieces were pretty big! The large brown square that came out of the package crumbled very easily, which made the eating very messy. After I bit into it, there was quite a mess! Sadly, it wasn’t as sticky as it was described on the packet. I think it’s the large amount of sugar, which is also most of what the whole brownie is made of. (yikes!)

Gooey Caramel Bites
The Gooey Caramel Bites are actually chocolate biscuit squares layered with caramel, and topped off with a thick slice of chocolate. I liked the coconut shreds in the biscuit layer since it gave the whole shebang a lot of texture. The chocolate and caramel were winners too, and they melted wonderfully in the mouth, though some people might find it too sweet.

Cranberry Pistachio Bites
Chewy and grainy is how I would describe the Cranberry Pistachio Bites. These bites were sticky, moist and had lots of texture – due to the generous amounts of flaxseed, pistachio and cranberry, yay! They were really generous with the honey too – which was too overwhelming at first. On a second mouthful, the honey really brings out the myriad of flavours in this nutty little cube, not bad at all!
