Good taste, but very sweet

These bars are very tasty, however, I doubt that they are very healthy considering they are full of sugar, both from the dried fruit and the chocolate. As long as you know this, it tastes great!

Tastes great but heavy on the cals

Nice bars, bit of crunch and chocolate, but very high in fat and sugar, not sure about the cholesterol lowering claim and seems a bit of a contradiction to insinuate healthy when there are 174 cals per bar.  Found half a bar enough otherwise a bit sickly.  Received as an item to review.

It could be better

It is a very tasty bar; if you're looking for good taste and you don't mind the price for the few bars that you get then it is as good a choice for snack bar as any. Additionally, they claim to be cholesterol lowering. I am not sure if they base that claim solely on the fact that the bar contains 'plant stanol esters' and that that has been found to lower cholesterol or if they have really tested the cholesterol-lowering capabilities of this bar. I dare say it's probably the former hypothesis to be the one that applies here. At any rate, I wouldn't buy it again due to the amount of other not particularly healthy ingredients that certainly wouldn't have good effects on one's health if these bars were to be eaten regularly as a snack. So if you're looking for cholesterol lowering plant stanol esters you may just want to reach out for an apple. I received this item via an Ocado voucher in exchange for a review.

Too sweet

I found these too sweet almost dessert like. Otherwise the flavour is not too offensive. Interesting that they are cholesterol lowering but have relatively high saturated fat in them.
