I have previously done a blog post where I had tried some healthy snacks before (which you can read about here). I actually still buy all of the things I bought last time and I’ve tried them in some of the other flavours they sell. They have become some of my favourite snacks.
Since I enjoyed trying those healthy snacks I thought I should try some different ones and who knows maybe I will find a new favourite.
The first thing I tried was watermelon slices. I never used to like watermelon but I saw it in a small packet and thought I would get a pack to try. I actually really enjoyed it, I’ve been taking it to work to have with my lunch a lot. Watermelon is low in calories and fat. It is also a good source of vitamin A and vitamin C.
The second thing is ‘Nákd – Posh Bits’ in cocoa raspberry flavour. I think these are the most delicious things I’ve ever tried! They are honestly so good, I could easily eat the whole packet in one sitting. They also sell them in cocoa mandarin and cocoa sea salt. I haven’t tried them yet but if they are anything like the cocoa raspberry then they are sure to be very tasty. They are 100% natural raw fruit & nut bits. They have no added sugar, are gluten free, 1 of your 5 a day and are vegan.
The next are ‘Beond Bars’ I had never heard of ‘Beond Bars’ before until I saw them in Aldi. I have tried these in two flavours, the acai berry and raw choc. The raw choc bars are vegan, paleo, gluten free, soya free and non GM. They are so tasty, you can really taste the chocolate. So they are perfect for when you are craving a chocolate bar but are trying to be good. I googled them and they have other flavours I want to try like cinnamon apple and the baobab pineapple.
The fourth thing I tried is ‘Urban Fruit Brilliant Banana’. Last time I tried the perfect pineapple and I loved it. I actually don’t like bananas. Although I haven’t actually eaten one since I was a child but still its the flavour and texture I don’t like. But when I go Bali in October I want to try a ‘Pisang Goreng’ which is a fried banana, so before I go I’m trying to make myself like banana and this seemed like a great place to start. They are vegan, gluten-free and basically just baked banana so I decided to give them a try.
Lastly is two different flavour ‘Perk!er Quinoa Bars’. The first flavour is Goji and Cranberry, which is high in fibre, a source of protein, source of vitamin E, 100% vegan, gluten, wheat, and dairy free. The second flavour is Coconut and Chia which has the same qualities as the other, just switch out vitamin E for Omega 3. I didn’t like the Goji and Cranberry one, I don’t know if it was the cranberry’s or the goji berries I can taste but I just don’t like it. The coconut one however was really tasty and I wasn’t expecting to like it because coconut is not my favourite flavour but its actually quite nice.
I would actually love some vegan snack ideas that don’t contain nuts, we have a strict no nut policy in work which means I can’t take most of these, so some ‘no nut’ ideas would be great! If you have any let me know in the comments below or on twitter.
