Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on July 13, 2019
I bought this due to the fabulous reviews. I saw Saponaria root extract in the ingredients, but I told myself I was being overly cautious. It has a very sweet taste compared to what I grew up eating and the texture is odd at room temperature; it’s almost like a marshmallow. Once I refrigerated it, the texture was better. However, I got extremely nauseous after eating it. I thought I had too much, so I gave myself a day off from it. I tried a bit of it again and the nausea returned. My gut told me to look up the unknown ingredient and guess what? Saponaria root is toxic in overdoses, though what exactly constitutes an overdose probably varies. It can cause nausea, diarrhoea and vomiting. I’m giving the product two stars, because I realise not everyone is as sensitive as I am and the flavour, though very sweet, wasn’t awful. I cannot return this, so unfortunately the remainder is going in the bin. Lesson learnt: always look up unknown ingredients if you are prone to digestive issues.
