Our review

Easy to eat, decent value, best used when you need a fast fix of energy

This 60g, fruit-based bar is a good fast fix reviver but best nibbled steadily for a slower release. The ingredients of all four flavours (peanut, coconut, banana, and wild berry) are mostly dried-fruit based, bulked up with starch sugars and oats.

What little fat there is comes from natural oils and it’s low in sodium. The relatively strong but not overpowering flavours are all natural with no nuts, artificial colours or sweeteners. 

It’s easy to open, moist enough to chew easily and temperature stable too. There’s very little protein (High5 do a separate 27 percent protein bar) and that’s backed up in a fair old rush of energy shortly after eating. 

This is great if you need a quick pickup, but generally it’s better being nibbled gradually rather than gobbled down in one.
