    Macadamias are the best nut 🙂

    At least the best nut for eating. I know some pretty awesome nuts that are great for hugging and chatting to.

    Queensland nuts (Macadamia) are my favourite. I’m not fond of carob, but I’ll give this one a go. 🙂

    I liked the sound of the go natural bar until I read it had carob – no no no! and the seedy bar looked so good and chewy that I don’t understand how it could be crumbly. Sigh! Well I am sure I would share your appreciation of the peanut butter bar

    I never knew it was possible for a snack bar to be bad…and yet you have shown me the error of my ways. Of course, now I can just avoid these dodgy ones and continue to feel like my own snack bar success is constantly winning at life.

    I ate 2 of those mcadamia/carob bars straight after giving birth to Misty 🙂 Anything would have tasted good after that marathon though!

    Yeah I wasn’t impressed with those soft-eating bars either… I had high hope for them too, boo – at least both of us are pretty adept at making our own food processor raw vegan treats 🙂

    I haven’t tried any of those bars because I’m not much of a snacker (but oh how I was in my youth!) I love the look of the one that looks like something you’d stick in a bird cage but what a shame it was disappointing because it seemed to be a great healthy option. When the healthy options falter, why not console ourselves with peanut butter and chocolate! xx

    Speaking of fruit nut bars.. the Boy absolutely loves the Woolies branded ones.. I know.. I thought they would be all yuck, but it’s quite pleasant.. I think he likes it because it’s sweet and we both know what a terrible sweet tooth he is 😛

    I haven’t had the privilege to try the good ones of these bars but I think I’m falling fast for the PB chocolate one – I do wonder why 😉

    Thanks for a fabulous review!

    Yes Yes Yes!!! I do adore the Macadamia Divine bars, but the Macadamia Dream bars are way better to me. They are actually my favourite snack of all time – probably equal to yoghurt coated Sesame Snaps.
    But I do adore macadamia nuts, and I love a slightly sour and tangy yoghurt coating. I also love hard and crunchy bars, so the Go Natural Soft Eating bars don’t appeal at all and I haven’t tried them.
    I noticed that the Macro brand has released some soft bars like that but I haven’t tried them.
    I was actually just thinking how much I missed the Macadamia Dream bars when I noticed your new post! 🙂

    I’ve not had any of those ‘rectangular packaged goods’, but by golly, I get massive cravings for them when I’m sick. Like I am now… I want that Incredibar! Want!

  11. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I have been eyeing, and resisting, the Choc Almond Raspberry bar and am now rather thrilled that my resistance may have been for good measure. I may have to look more closely at the Macadamia Divine bar though, as whilst I don’t much like macadamias either, I do love carob and it is firmly in my ‘dairy exception’ category.

    Also, I want the peanut butter ones very badly indeed and that last picture is taunting me in its unavailability 🙂

    Am not a big fan of health (or whatever they are called) bars but of all these the one that would attract me most is the macadamia nut one. Love them nuts!

    Why do all the best bars come from other countries?!?! Argh! 😛

    I haven’t actually tried any of these. I’m currently addicted to oaty slices…….but only the choc chip one’s. The rest not so much (although the plain are kind of nice crumbled up with yoghurt).

    Now to wait patiently for a delicious peanut butter and chocolate bar to make it to the shore’s of Australia…..

    Wuuu wahhh… I honestly can’t remember the last time I had a snack bar! Used to eat a lot of them cause I never had lunch breaks on Mondays. Forgot how diverse they can be. Was quite hopeful of the agave seeds one too. I wouldn’t mind the condensed milk but if it tastes bland……… Pass! Haha. Hope you’re doing well and enjoying your long weekend, woo hoo! Backtostudies,bye.

    Sad that there are so many misses when they all look like hits from the surface! I guess a lot of “healthy snacks” can be like that… They look/sound good, but really taste like grass clippings. It’s the lucky good finds that really make you appreciate that fact! Love hearing about more of the selection in your neck of the woods- I hadn’t heard of those brands over here.

  16. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    That macadamia bar sounds so so good, but I love macadamias. Mmm, and that peanut butter one looks scrumptious as well.

  17. Catherine

    I’m with you on the grass cuttings. Seedy bars are just…seedy bars (haha unintended and on Monday morning!)

    I wish I had either of the other three sitting next to my cuppa right now

  18. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL well I do have my Southern moments but I don’t tend to use y’all, more suga’! 😛

  19. Emma

    This reminds me that I still need to eat my Spam-flavored macadamia nuts from Hawaii. Mmmmmmm, I’ve chickened out a few times.

    I bet the reason I was skeptical of your raw treats is that energy bars have long freaked me out. I haven’t tried many in the past 10 years or so, but the ones from my youth were so gross to me. I guess PowerBars were the only thing around back then? So phony fake tasting, I thought, which always struck me as weird.

  20. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Ooo i love these reviews of yours 🙂 I love snack bars but hehe it’s a bit silly because sometimes these snack bars are actually full of sugar too 😛

    I love the look of the first one ~ where did you get these? I wanna get some and try soon 😀

  21. Ali

    Snack bars are a bit hit and miss at times, aren’t they! The peanut butter and chocolate one sounds delicious!

    hahaha “my mouth was being punished” you’re amazing. I love saying y’all & I feel like a completely doosh when I do it. I have no right to say it. it makes no sense coming form my mouth. but i do it anyway. I’ve wanted to try those go natural bars soft fruit & nut. boo they taste bad!

    I’m a huge ‘y’all’ speaker. And then I say “Wassup homies” and my humiliation is complete.

    PB and chocolate – you can never go wrong.
