“ Brand: Eat Natural / Type: Yoghurts „
I'd recently been getting into Eat Natural bars and the like after trying on a whim the Dark Chocolate and Macadamia one and becoming somewhat addicted! Waiting for a train the other day I became a little peckish and picked up another from the station cafe for a whopping £1! Most places sell these bars for around 80p each or you can get packs of 3 in most supermarkets for a little under £2.
Tempted be my usual favourite I resisted and decided to try something different, in a pretty, turquoise wrapper the 'Blueberries, pistachios and yoghurt' caught my eye. (In the dooyoo picture the wrapper looks a slightly different colour). Surprising, considering the ingredients are entirely different it had a very similar taste to the chocolate and macadamia one. I think this is due to the crisped rice and chewy caramel goo they use to bind all the goodies together. What you get in this bar is a layer of soft yoghurt on the bottom with a topping of broken up pistachios, dried blueberries and crisped rice. The result is a chewy bar, though I found it a bit too sweet and sickly. I think this is due to the yoghurt coating. It's a shame because most of the 'Eat Natural' bars use this coating but I find the bitter dark chocolate worked better with the sweet chewyness and the nutty flavours.
Eat Natural bars don't display and nutritional information on their bars, but from checking the website I've found that this 45g bar contains 211 calories 17g sugar and 12g fat (although a lot of this is good nutty fat). So natural, but not exactly super healthy.
Overall, I was a little disappointed with is flavour, especially considering I enjoyed the other so much. I think I'll steer clear of the ones with yoghurt coating, they're just far too sweet and sickly, I could even finish mine. Waste of £1!
