  1. These are a great idea for a lunch box filler - maybe with out the chocolate if you're being healthy :) I live in Australia and i haven't heard of rice syrup, is that like golden syrup? or glucose syrup?

  2. Brown Rice syrup is made with Brown rice. it is not nearly as sweet as golden syrup or glucose syrup.
    Dark chocolate is very good for you in small amounts.
