Pingos are baked muffin balls filled with yummy, soft centres. Made the Mother Earth way, they contain no artificial colours or flavours and have 25% less fat*.

Pingos are the perfect size for little ones and come individually wrapped, so they are easy to pop into kids’ lunchboxes.

Choose from four flavoured centres:

  • Raspberry Yoghurt
  • Chocolate
  • Strawberry Smoothie
  • Caramel NEW

How do you define these ?

They’re not like other products that are around at the moment, in that they are not a fruit or muesli bar even if they do have the external crust and a delectable centre.
They’re not a cake that is going to crumble as soon as little fingers get them.
They’re not a biscuit although do have biscuit aspects to them.

So what are they ?

They’re PINGOS

Pingos are baked muffin balls filled with yummy, soft centres. Made the Mother Earth way, they contain no artificial colours or flavours. They fit great into kids lunchboxes and even better into Mums handbag for a quick treat on the run when the little darlings are demanding a treat while we fulfil the more mundane aspects of being a parent. They come in individual little packets that are nice and easy to open in a hurry, and the size of the Pingos means that they never get wasted.

I often find that my children will eat half a bar etc because it’s just too much for the younger ones – and that’s where the Pingos are perfect.

When these arrived in the mail my first thought was how much the children were going to love having these in their lunchboxes, but then the fact that these ones were CARAMEL finally dawned on me and I figured I’d better try one before the little darlings got home. I’m not sure it was a good thing or a bad thing because to be honest….Mummy LOVED them. So where do I hide them for that sneaky treat when no one is looking ? Or, do I be a nice Mummy and actually share ? The latter decision won out when I hadn’t chosen my hiding spot before the kids came home and spotted them. Of course they just had to try them so reluctantly, I handed one out to each of them.

Much to my horror….they also loved them which means that they were then asking for them in their lunch. So much for my sneaky treat for me.

Seriously though, these were great. The caramel wasn’t of the type that is sickening sweet, but still tasty enough to be extremely moreish and leave you wanting more.

We will definately be buying this flavour in the future although perhaps the next lot I just might have to hide ;)
