Tasted: Frank Honest Snacking Orange and Chocolate Snack Bar

IMG_0848_Final-2

By Nut-allergy Alexis
A very rich and dense chocolate snack; imagine a highly concentrated fruit malt loaf.  Tasty and not for gulping down quickly.

The product
Suitable for a wide range of people with allergies. ‘Energysmart’ presumably refers to slow release energy from complex carbohydrates. Ignoring the delicious-sounding ‘added vegetable fibre’, it looks to be a healthy snack.

The verdict
Very dense and rich with a texture like dry malt loaf. Indeed, it may be too rich to appeal to children, and as an adult it is unlike usual snacks which can get bolted down in a few seconds. The packaging is very simple and plain but the taste is more sophisticated than it would lead you to expect.
