Barleycup and I go back a long way. I grew up in a health conscious household and this, rather than coffee, was the drink of choice. When I moved away from home, Barleycup moved with me. If I want an uplifting invigorating drink that isn’t tea, it’s this roasted barley and chicory root beverage I turn to. It has similar bitter notes and aromas to those associated with coffee but with an underlying nuttiness which I really enjoy. Barleycup are currently running a #CutCaffeine campaign and as part of this are offering up a hamper prize to one lucky Tin and Thyme reader. Here’s what they have to say.
With recent research revealing that a third of us are consuming five or more cups of caffeinated tea or coffee a day – more than the European Food Safety Agency recommended limits – Barleycup is encouraging people to #CutCaffeine for the month of September. Barleycup drinks are the natural alternative to tea and coffee, perfect for those following a healthy balanced diet. As well as being gluten free (certified by Coeliac UK), caffeine free and with only 10kcals per cup, it has an excellent aroma and coffee-like flavour.
Available in four different varieties: Barleycup Powder, Barleycup Granules, Barleycup Organic and Barleycup with Dandelion; it’s an instant hot drink that the whole family can enjoy. It’s free from artificial additives and contains only natural ingredients, including roasted barley and chicory roots.
Barleycup is offering daily tips on how you can reduce the amount of caffeine from your diet on its Twitter page (@BarleycupUK) and they’re offering an exciting (and energising!) caffeine free hamper of goodies to giveaway to one lucky reader!
The hamper includes one jar of each variety, Explore’s new pulse pasta, a set of four pretty pastel mugs, an album of 100 running songs and a book of logical brain games – all aiming to stimulate the brain and keep you alert through the day – with no need for caffeine!
This is a sponsored post and apart from the top paragraph, not written by me. However, I only feature content that I’m interested in and hopefully that my readers will like too.
