I recently went to Asia on holiday and even in 35 degree heat they didn't melt or go sticky. They're also quite light, so I put one or two in my back pack to snack on throughout the day, which came in very handy on long journeys. They taste delicious and are a pleasure to eat!! I shared a few with travelling companions, who also said they were delicious!
3.0 out of 5 stars... had these over in the states and they were great, soft
2 April 2017
I first had these over in the states and they were great, soft, gooey and increadibly tastey. These ones are like a workout for my jaw. tough and chewey and taste slightly of peanut. I'm not sure if they are a different recipe or just older stock but they aren't anything like the ones sold in the US.
The bars are ok but the value of buying in bulk is lost when several of the individual wrappers were compromised. I had no way of knowing how long the bars had laid open so had to throw them away. I didn't notice the damaged wrappers until I was halfway down the box; I wish I had complained at the time but will demand replacements in the future. I recommend checking all the bars immediately when the box arrives.
This flavour is tasty enough - it's nicer to munch on something substantial instead of gels all the time.
These are delicious, and deceptively filling, energy bars. The price works out at around £1.50 per bar (or more) - which is a bit steep - but if you are looking for high-energy low-weight rations for walks or - dare I say, considering the wrapper - climbing then these are excellent.
Essentially oat based, with around 270-280 calories per bar (dependent on flavour), and a good size - in practice I think you will not want to eat more than one at a time.
The peanut butter variety - like all of them - is very tasty, but if you are in a group It does have certain aromatic qualities. Basically, you can always tell who has eaten the peanut one. Alright while out on the moors, but if you are in a car on the way home you'll probably be safer to go with a different flavour.
