Merangz

Merangz

I’d like to introduce you to Merangz. Made by Flower & White, these meringues tick several boxes for me… They’re delicious, made fairly locally (just over the border in Shropshire) and tick a couple of “free-from” boxes.

Merangz are made to a traditional Swiss meringue recipe with British free range egg whites and natural flavours. They come in two sizes: Giants and Bites.

Giant Merangz - Chocolate flavour

Merangz Giants are large enough to be eaten on their own or crushed up to make a delicious dessert such as an Eton mess. They are available in Madagascan Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Pistachio, Lemon, Salted Caramel and White Chocolate & Raspberry flavours.

Merangz Bites are the perfect size for a treat or to have a couple of different flavours in one sitting. I love the Bites as you can get a box of 5 different flavours:

Merangz Classic Bites: Strawberry, Pistachio, Chocolate, Lemon, Hazelnut Praline.
Merangz Fruit Bites: Passion Fruit, Strawberry, Lime, Lemon, Cherry.
Merangz Chocolate Bites (Seasonal October – March): Mocha, Chocolate Orange, Chocolate Strawberry, White Chocolate, White Chocolate & Raspberry.

My favourites are the Merangz Classic Bites.

Giant Merangz - Chocolate flavourMerangz have a lovely crisp shell and are light, airy and smooth inside. The flavours available appeal to everyone’s tastes and are so delicious. I wasn’t a fan of meringues at all, that was until I tried Merangz… Now the only meringues I do eat are Merangz!

The main ingredients of Merangz are caster sugar and free range egg whites, meaning they are naturally gluten free, low fat and suitable for vegetarians (depending on the flavours).

The Merangz pictured are Chocolate flavoured using cocoa powder for the flavouring and so are not only gluten free but also lactose-free. Perfect… for me, anyway! In fact, the only flavour Merangz I can’t have are the White Chocolate & Raspberry ones due to the whole milk powder used in the flavouring.

I picked up the Chocolate flavoured Giant Merangz at Coed-y-Dinas in Welshpool (a pack of 2 for £3.49), but I have also bought them and the Merangz Classic Bites from Ludlow Food Centre and I’ve seen them at the market on the square in Shrewsbury.

Go Merangz for perfect meringues!

    Those look heavenly and I had no idea they could come in so many flavors!

    I use to make something called a “forgotten cookie” – basically a meringue that was put in a warm oven, the heat turned off, then “forgotten” until they were cooled and ready to eat.

    Alas, I don’t eat eggs (including the whites) anymore, so no more meringues for me.

  2. Hi Nikki,

    I love meringues in just about every flavour you mentioned, although the mixed bites box appeals to me the most.

    All of the company’s products look and sound delicious, although I am not a big egg fan when I can see them, so the containers of liquid egg yolks would have to go!!

    A ‘Naughty but Nice’ post 🙂

    Yes, they look delicious, but without a shadow of a doubt, are actually the dullest and most flavourless meringues I have ever tasted… and if they had cost me the full £3.50 for two, I would have been absolutely furious!! They taste of nothing, the base was thick and crystallised and the inside was dust dry and devoid of any squidginess whatsoever! Terrible!
