Normally I would make my own snack bars, but sometimes when you're on the run, being able to grab something healthy and vegan from the supermarket is the next best thing. That's where these Raw Food Bars from the Woolworths Macro line come in handy.
You can currently find these bars in two flavours: Chocolate flavoured and Chocolate & Mint flavoured.
Made from a mixture consisting of 69% dates, 18% nuts (almonds, cashews and walnuts) and cocoa powder, they're one of the most healthy and natural bars you'll find on an Australian supermarket shelf.
In addition to the bars being made from raw ingredients, they're:
* Gluten Free
* Free from: artificial colours, flavours and preservatives
Sure, you could make these yourself at home, but when you're out of the house and on the run, these make for a great energy-filled snack.
These bars, at 50g each and a little over $2, are actually quite reasonably priced compared to similar products. They also happen to be on special at the moment, so now's the perfect time to give them a try!
It's great to see that such products are making their way to supermarket shelves. Perhaps in the future Woolworths may expand their Macro line to include some Raw Food Bars with some non-chocolate flavours, or even nut-free bars for people with allergies, or those watching their fat intake.
If I have just one complaint about the Chocolate & Mint Flavoured bar is that the mint flavour is there, but I would have preferred it to be more distinct.
Next time when you're in the supermarket, craving chocolate, consider buying one of these Woolworths Macro Raw Food Bars (found in the health food aisle) instead.
