A slightly awkward-to-open bar thanks to a tight, sticky wrapper, but at least the Mule bar’s tricky packaging is compostable if you bring it home (or it accidentally blows away).
A high proportion of the ingredients are organic and/or Fairtrade too, so it’s a low-guilt gobfull. A high percentage of starch syrups and fruit mean it packs a rapid energy delivery, chews down quickly and, for once, the wide range of flavours are as appetising as they sound.
That does mean potential to trigger an energy spike if you get greedy but pack size is slightly smaller than average, which helps steady snacking, if not relative value.
