Sweet Treat: Creative Nature Bars


Wondering around Tesco I spotted down the free from food isle, some yummy new snack bars to try. They were on offer, so I brought all four flavours. I thought that they were so yummy I would buy them again (for the third time)and share them with you. Normally 99p the Creative Nature bars are jam packed full of goodness, they are vegan and also gluten free, each bar is cold pressed to retain nutrients. They are a really great snack option for the 11am munchies! They all have a great texture and I will definitely be picking them up again.
 
There are few new snack bars in town and all four pack a flavourful punch!
 


This flavour was the first one I tried and I think it is delicious, it has a strong taste of red berries and is very fruity. The cranberries aren't too tart, the flavour is really balanced and almost juicy!

For a 38g bar you get 122 calories and 0.1g of saturated fat. That 0.1 is not a typo, that is it a delightful fact!

Ingredients:
dried fruit (apricots, cranberries, pineapple, goji berries), oats, sultanas, vegetable glycerine, natural flavouring.



This bar is the most savoury of the munch bunch and I really enjoy the flavour. There is a hint of sweetness but not overly so. It's a lovely change to having an overly fruity bar. Because of the protein content I noticed that this bar kept me going for longer than the other bars, which is a massive plus for me!

In a 38g bar you get 170 calories and 1.4g of saturated fat. This bar also contains 6.5g of protein, making it a get work out snack!

Ingredients:
roasted peanuts, dates, sunflower seeds, sultanas, hemp protein powder, vegetable glycerine



Smells liked a decadent chocolate dessert. On first bite you can taste the fruitiness, then comes the yummy flavour of the cacao powder and cacao nibs. It's delish. I would buy this again in a heart beat for when I am in need a chocolate flavoured boost!

For a 38g bar you get 132 calories and 1.1g of saturated fat.

Ingredients:
sultanas, oats, dates, cranberries, vegetable glycerine, goji berries, cacao powder, cacao nibs, cacao butter, maca powder, water.



Is the zingiest of the bunch and packs a punch with some serious ginger tang. I'm not a massive fan of ginger and this was not my favourite of the bunch. However I would not turn it down if it was the only thing on offer. It is still tasty and although the ginger is strong you still get a hint of papaya, I have to say that it is possibly growing on me (I'm currently eating one know and it's a grower!).

In a 38g bar you get 124 calories and 1.9g of saturated fat.

Ingredients:
dried fruit (pear, pineapple, papaya, apricots), oats, ginger, coconut, vegetable glycerine, barley grass powder, pau d'arco, lemon juice.


So there you have it, a new bar to add to my slightly unhealthy healthy fruit bar addiction. I would eat these bars in place of conventional treats. The full flavour of the bars is moarish but I find that I am left satisfied after one bar and not wanting to go back for more.

What flavours take your fancy?
P.S once you find you favourite you can buy single flavours in packs of 20 online.
