So, as I’m sure you’ve gathered from the name of this blog, I’m more of a dinner person than a breakfast person! I know, I know! “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” (blah blah blah) but to be honest the only breakfasts I really enjoy tend to be a Full English breakfast or a heavy Nigerian breakfast like Yam with eggs…if I ate either of those every day I would be the size of an elephant! I do like my Weetabix but to be honest most other cereals don’t really do it for me. So what am I left with? Toast. Most days I just have some toast and tea and look forward to lunch! So when I received news of a new range breakfast bars I was intrigued. I’ve tried breakfast bars and breakfast biscuits but I’ve found most of them to be rather dry and tasteless. The 9Bar range sounded really exciting with the tag line of being “moist and chewy” and I was so pleased to receive a few samples to review that I decided to try them pretty much the next morning.
As you can see there’s a great selection to choose from full of healthy goodness. I have to say that I was really impressed with all the flavours particularly the Almond & Raspberry flavour bar because I don’t usually like almonds but this was actually quite yummy. Perhaps my tastebuds have changed or the combination just worked but the Almond & Raspberry bar went down a treat. All the bars are indeed moist and chewy, packed full of flavour. I just ate a bar for breakfast with some tea and I was full for at least 3 hours*, not bad for a 50g energy bar. I only wish they were slightly bigger…but that could be because I’m a bit of greedy guts. I liked the Cashew & Cocoa bar (although surprisingly the Almond bar was my favourite), it felt like I was eating an actual chocolate bar for breakfast without the guilt! That’s got to be a good thing!
You can buy the range online. There’s some more information about each flavour below and why you should give 9bar breakfast bars a go.
*Even though I could eat one bar and fill full for a few hours, everyone is different though so you might need to eat something else with the bar like some fruit.
