Tasty – but tiny,
This review is from: Alpen Light Chocolate and Orange Cereal Bars 19 g (Pack of 5) (Grocery)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As someone who uses cereal bars as a convenient but not too bad for you mid-morning snack, these Alpen Light bars seemed like a good choice. And indeed, despite some scepticism that 'light' might mean tasteless, these bars taste pretty good – they're chewy, distinctively orangey, and with just enough chocolate to tickle the taste buds.
It's not often that 'chocolate orange' is used in conjunction with foodstuffs claiming to be healthy, however, and there is a reason for that. In exchange for having half the calories of a normal Alpen bar, they also seem to be about half the size; in fact, you're quite likely to want to scoff down two bars at once, thus negating any of the promised calorific benefits. In short, a reasonably tasty snack, but healthy only by dint of their diminutive size.
