Eat Natural Maple Syrup, Pecans & Peanuts Bars
Recently some new Eat Natural bars appeared in my local Tesco Express, I've never been a fan of their bars to be honest as I find them rather sugary and unhealthy for a "natural" snack bar, but it seems they have upped their game and reduced the sugar whilst increasing the protein content. Always a good thing in my book! They're also wheat, dairy and gluten-free so are suitable for us folks with various intolerances as well as being vegetarian. Yay!
For £2 you get three 45g bars, which I must admit I thought was a bit steep. But you have to pay for your health, I guess!
The bars smelled nice and peanutty with a hint of maple syrup. They were kind of sticky, but not overly so, they still held their shape despite my warm hands.
They tasted pretty decent! Not too hard and not too chewy, not too sweet, with just the right amount of maple flavour and crunchy nuttiness. They were very filling and satisfying, I didn't feel the need to eat another after the first as so often happens with sugary sweet snack bars...the high protein content must have been working its magic!
Overall, these are a great new variety from Eat Natural and I'm glad the company have upped their game in the snack bar department. Although these do contain sugars there's a lot less than the standard "healthy" snack bar, and theyre more full of the good stuff, so I'd happily buy these as a snack without feeling too guilty. These are great if you're watching your sugar intake.
