This Creative Nature Heavenly Cacao bar gives a great energy boost as well as a hit of raw chocolate with a nice crunch from the cacao nibs.

The Product
Thankfully, there is a move away from the sugar laden flapjacks that aren’t really that healthy at all – to an ever-increasing range of more natural bars that are free of processed sugar. And many like Creative Nature are Vegan-friendly too!

Creative Nature Cacao bar is a cold pressed  bar made with raw cacao (not cocoa!) which aims to lock in all the goodness of the cacao bean, but with a natural lower saturated fat content. .

The Verdict
It’s hard to believe that there’s no added sugar in these bars as they taste really sweet! The sweet berry taste follows through with creamy chocolate flavours. The addition of some cocoa nibs, little bits of raw cocoa bean, add to an interesting texture. The dried fruits and the raw chocolate provide vitamins and minerals combined to deliver sweet energy boost treat without guilt of having a calorie-loaded chocolate bar.  From now on, they are going to be my choice for my mid afternoon pick me up!

Cacao?
Cacao is the Latin American name for the tree that produces the beans that are used to make chocolate. It’s also commonly used to describe chocolate in it’s raw state before any heating has taken place. Keeping chocolate in it’s raw state is said to preserve all the beneficial minerals that are lost when it’s heated and sugar is added. It’s also said to be full of antioxidants and to be a mood booster.

Creative Nature Tropical Treat
I wasn’t as keen on this bar as the others in the Creative Nature range. The ginger overpowered the other ingredients and gave it a rather fibrous texture.Tasted by Vegan Caroline
