Special K Peach and Apricot Bar
Advantages: Very tasty, good snack, quality ingredients!
Disadvantages: A bit on the pricey side! Could eat more than 1 in one go!!
Looking out yet again for some nice snacky things that we can eat in the evening or during the day, I discovered these Special K Peach and Apricot bars. Now I don't particulary like Special K products as I think you pay through the nose for the name and if anything has health bar written on it you get caught again with it being overpriced.
Now with both me and daughter trying to do healthy for a couple of weeks, we decided to give in and give these bars a go as they were on special offer in Tesco's. It worked out that if you got one box it would be £2.11p or 2 boxes for £3.00 making them a bit cheaper!!
So what is Peach and Apricot like, well I have been getting used to the taste of apricot over the months by eating dried apricots as a snack for a change and it did take some time to get to like the taste I must admit. Well in these bars you can really taste the peach and apricot and they taste really delicious!!!!
These come in a white box which holds 6 x 23g bars, with the Special K logo and a picture of the bar on the front of the box it also say's 50% more fruit, which with the taste it has I can well believe that it does. The box has a perforated square on the front that goes onto the top which you peel back to reveal the 6 bars sitting there.
These are wrapped in a white wrapper which is similar to the box, now when you lift out the bar it will look reasonabley big,BUT when you squeeze the wrapper at the end it will transform into a much smaller bar than it looks!! A good inch smaller I would say!!
On tearing the wrapper off at one end it will reveal an attractive cereal bar that has a wiggly icing squiggled over the top which I believe is yoghurt. These bars feel firm to the touch, but as soon as you put it in your mouth you will notice that it is really quite soft to the bite.It is a bit sticky to the touch and you can clearly see the fruit in amongst the rice and wheat cereal which is then binded together with a sticky something!!
Now there is no denying it these bars do taste absolutely delicious and that they are worth the amount we paid in the offer. You do feel like you are having a really nice snack and as long as you don't wolf it down in one and just take your time to eat this then alls well!!!
These bars each have;
You can buy these in several different flavours with some of them being;
~~~Fruits of the Forest~~~
They also do a bliss range which have;
~~~Orange and Chocolate~~~
~~~Raspberry and Chocolate~~~
Now I have tried the Mint and they were equally as lovely with the added bonus of having their bottoms covered in smooth chocolate. This is what makes the Bliss range different as they have chocolate on them!!
So I will not moan to much about the price as being at the moment I can get these for a reasonable price and I will give them 4 stars as if they filled the wrapper I would then give them a 5!!
Summary: Nice to replace a higher calorie bar with if doing healthy!!
