    Oh I want to try those raw revolution bars! A worthy purchase you reckon?

    I only tend to buy bars when I’m travelling these days… most of the time I know I can make them myself (and better as you say) 🙂

    Are you a tim tam slam fan!?!

  2. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    Simply Bars was one of the sponsors at Blend last weekend! I loved getting to try those bars.

    That Tim Tam loks delish!

    I haven’t had any of those bars, but I have made your brownie bites and I’m sure they’d win hands down.
    I’ve been going through a sesame seed phase and cannot get enough of these bars:
    I’ve been crazy about sesame seeds and tahini, although I haven’t seen that black sesame seed paste you like. Hopefully I’ll find it soon.

    I bought two types of raw revolution bars from that shop in Griffith last year, one was Spirulina and something, and the other was cashew and agave nectar. The first one made me sick (I actually threw up), and the second one was sickeningly sweet but at least I still felt alive afterwards. So, alas, I can never face another raw revolution bar again 🙁

    I’ve not tried *any* of these. I had plans at the start of the year to make snack bars, starting with the peanut butter-quinoa puff ones that I made from your recipe (remember those?), but that batch was really the end of my efforts. Maybe I should bring them back. Maybe I should bring exercise back so I have an excuse to eat them, too…

  6. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    As I’m reading this at Sydney airport, your last feature has me thinking “really? where?” and wanting to embark on a treasure hunt. I may yet do it 😉

    Also, my NY accommodation sounds remarkably similar to your NY accommodation – I suspect it’s a common sort of experience actually (mine was at a YMCA) – and I have been wanting to try those raw revolution bars for ages but not been able to justify the cost. It’s cheaper than a trip to New York, so now I may just manage it.

  7. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I try not to snack but really when they look this good, it’s hard not to right? 🙂

  8. Vien @ We Dare Food

    HAHA are those tim tam sweet flavours any good? been wanting to get one but not sure which!

  9. Kath Lockett

    None to all of them but YES to iwanttotrythemallrightnow. With my coffee.

    Sweet Wishes!

    That’d be something to say to yourself each night in your insane asylum / prison cell of a hotel room in NYC. Eep.

    The Raw Revolution bar looks like it’s fallen prey to the curse of organic snacks worldwide, where there are multiple fonts and lots of writing on the packaging so that it’s tough to tell what the product really is. As long as its tasty!

    I loved Magic Eye!
    I do not love Tim Tams. I’ll eat pretty much any old chocolate if I feel the need, but TT’s are always a little weak and greasy for my liking. Not judging you though! Neverr! Indeed I’m applauding you with envy, because I haven’t tried a single one of those bars.

    Hahhaha… You’ve given me so many ideas and recommendations to binge on, I love it lol! I shall classify these under “exam-study-snacks-so-no-touchy”. And this sounds sad but I’ve never tried any of these! I always stick to the same product once I’ve found one that I like. How unadventurous (booo, wince… booooooooo)

  13. Christine (Merf)

    I’ve never tried any of those! You won me over on the Raw Revolution, as I too love New York. I’ll have to give those a try.

  14. leaf (the indolent cook)

    I’m intrigued by the first one. How alive is the food in the live food bar, I wonder? 😉

  15. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Raw Revolution is one of my favorite snack bar makers. Quality ingredients and they have really creative flavors.

    I have never had a Tim Tam. Gasp! And I had no idea they came in so many different flavors. Turkish Delight is a flavor that you’d never see in the states. They’d fill it ever-so-predictably with sugary peanut butter or flavorless nougat or chocolate frosting and it’d give you a toothache just looking at it.

    I love it when food tastes of memories – wish I had lovely foodie memories of new york – would be far superior to what we thought were blood stains on the wall and also to my discovery that chilli in new york means lots of minced meat! Oh no I forgot dojos which I loved

    As for the other bars – bad caramel bar for having too few nuts for Hannah and too many nuts for Sylvia! The only one I have tried of all these is flavoured tim tams – well they taste of memories and are so available and calling my name at the supermarket

    Argh. Stop!
    /furtive rustling in pantry…

    The coconut, chocolate and almond bar was VERY VERY strange. It was almost as if ALL of the ingredients had lost their individual tastes and transmogrified into something completely new and, in fact, not as nice as the originals. Ho-hum.

  19. Em

    What exactly is a beer nut? I have always wondered this. Is it just any nut that is consumed with beer? I am pretty sure it is not a nut made with beer. 🙂

  20. Ames

    I haven’t tried any of these bars sadly but that Morish one looks AMAZING! Wonder if they sell them in Melbourne…

    1. Ames

      And I totally should have clicked their website first before writing that comment ha! Now I know where to get them, yay!

  21. Hotly Spiced

    There are some really yummy looking bars here. I can imagine how you love New York. We sent our son there last night to study during the summer. We paid a huge sum of money for him to stay in student accommodation in Brooklyn. He had to share a tiny room with two others. He hated that room and was barely there (especially as one of the room-mates was a black rapper who wouldn’t stop playing his music night and day), but he sure did love New York!

  22. Gary

    I really like most of the Morish stuff. The bar you showed is addictive 🙂

    Having tasted so many of the TimTam varieties I’ve settled on the original and the double coat as my favourites. On cold Canberra nights I confess to having two. One to savour slowly and then the second to slam with my hot chocolate.

  23. Amy

    The treats are addictive, aren’t they?

    I (despite being coeliac and having to follow a gluten free diet) fell for the double choc caramel tim tams a few days ago. I had the option of either nothing, the Woolworths Macro double choc gluten free cookies or the caramel Tim Tams. Given that the gluten free ones were fully loaded with soy (which I find worse than gluten) I decided I needed to try these ones out. I only had one, but it was quite satisfying – pretty rich. Don’t think my tummy appreciated it though… 🙁

  24. whisperinggums

    And what about the Tim Tams might I ask? You are too funny…

  25. elise

    hmmm…i thought raw rev bars were the grossest. and the simply bar was just so so. now that tim tam on the other hand….woweeeee…i want i want!! looks to die for tasty.

    Sorry I am not really a healthy bar girl 😉

    Ooohhhh even the wrapping looks so American if you know what I mean Angle Babe… I want a bar now! With lots of chocolate and less raw-ness.. actually bacon might help.. Fry me some bacon.. 😛

  28. Tammy

    I keep those one of those raw revolution bars in my car for emergencies but I agree that your raw brownie bites are the bomb. I had them for my birthday.

  29. Ellie@Fit for the Soul

    I would like to try the simply bars b/c I heard they’re really good! I’ve tried raw revolution once. And you probably know that I’m seriously not picky! Perhaps I tried an unpleasant flavor, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

  30. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Well with those descriptions, I’m REALLY tempted to try Tim Tams…especially Turkish Delight ones.

    I think the only one of those I’ve tried is the Simply Bar, which was good but not GREAT. I have a deep and undying affection for Larabars so nothing really compares in my mind.

  31. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I haven’t tried any of these bars! Can’t blame you for loving your NYC bar. But yeah, I’d favour your recipes any day, lady. Oh! Oh! Start a business packaging them! I’d buy.

  32. Lucy (Beyond Bourke Street)

    Haven’t tried any of them (except the Tim Tams!). Go Natural makes a date, chocolate and macadamia bar that’s quite tasty, and reminds me of Larabars. Too bad we don’t have Larabars here in Australia 🙁

  33. Louise

    I have 3 key lime lara bars squirreled away in the cupboard. My lovely friend brought them from the US for me. I haven’t tasted any of these bars. I have tried some of the Tim Tams. I can’t believe how awful the Turkish Delight ones were. Blurgh.
