Seriously LOVING these ones - being as they are, heavily loaded with two of my favourite nut varieties, though I was surprised and a little concerned at how peanuts are clearly included, but the percentage wasn't specified on the wrapper - the only nut not so specified. Still, 41% of the contents were accounted for by the macadamias, hazelnuts and honey alone, and my investigation of the bar indicated that no more than 10% of that bar in particular was peanuts - I can live with that. Still, would have been smart to be up-front about the peanut quantity.
The bar was tough and chewy, so more of something you might want to throw into your hiking pack for a day out on the trails, of for slow-burning energy release before a big day on the sports fields, rather than something to slip in the lunchbox for morning tea snack at the office. If you have loose fillings you may want to take care how you eat these as the hefty jaw action required plus the sticky sweetness of the honey may conspire to pulling one or more silvercaps loose.
Overall, this was avery filling and satisfying bar. I was very happy to have the opportunity to trial this bar, and I will certainly be keeping my eye out for them in the shops. I don't know if I would want to buy bars such as these via online - I like to see the foodstuffs before I buy them, but when they hit the stores I will be on them like a locust!
I am now a huge fan of the Go Natural range of bars, and like the rest the macadamia and hazelnut is packed full of flavor and absolute goodness. Its hard to believe something as small as this simple bar can have so many great qualities about it; gluten free, full of protein, no artificial colors and flavors, high in fibre and delicious. What more could you want?
The packaging is simple, easy to read, and best of all has a window for you to see exactly what you are getting..so no hidden surprises.
These bars are great for lunchboxes, after school treats, late night snacks, carrying in your bag or pocket. I found them fantastic late at night while studying.
The price may be a little high per bar, but they are worth it though. I would be keen to purchase in boxes of 6 or 8 at a cheaper price. Definitely something worth trying if you havent yet.
I love that these bars are 100% natural. While it means that they are more expensive, it also means that they are better for you.
It's really good that these are gluten free, and it's easy to see this on the packaging. It's also good to try something that is gluten free and have it taste so good.
There is a good mixture of seeds with pumpkin seeds, sunflower and sesame seeds as well as puffed rice and peanuts.
I didn't like biting into this as I found it rather tough. The honey gave it more of a toffee texture than a gooey texture and so it took some time to get through the bar.
If you're after a strong macadamia or hazelnut flavour then this isn't the bar for you as I found the sesame and the peanuts to be a little too overpowering. This is a nice bar, but if it was the macadamias and hazelnuts I was after then I wouldn't buy this bar.
If you like nuts, and want them in a bar form you can't really go wrong with Go Naturals Macadamia and Hazelnut bar, as well as the two aforementioned nuts this bar also has peanuts and an assortment of seeds.
Like all Go Natural bars, the presentation is great, they are good at showing you what is contained in the packet, which is really good for when you are looking at different products to try and buy.
The honey makes it sweet, and is better then having some sort of artificial flavouring but is still something to think about if you are on a no sugar sort of thing.
The combination of all the ingredients worked really well, and it was easy to chomp my way through it, it felt more satisfying then other bars out there.
Go Natural's Macadamia and Hazelnut bar is a delicious nutty treat. It does contain more peanuts than the two nuts the bar are named after but this didn't detract from my enjoyment. (In fact I didn't realise this until reading the wrapper after I'd devoured the bar.)
The bar was a great mix of nuts and seeds for crunch. The honey gave a great sweetness that also made it chewier. It was also great to see the the bar was full of natural ingredients that gave it so many health benefits, and is also a bar that people with food allergies (except obviously nut allergies) should look at.
I gave my four year old a bite to try and she begged for more. As she chewed she kept saying "Yum, yum, yum." I wouldn't buy this bar just for her because of the price but I would be happy to share one with her. If I saw it on special somewhere I'd pick some up.
I had the great pleasure of trying the Go Natural Macadamia and Hazelnut bar recently. I love that this bar is so natural. There are no additives which is important to me.
The bar is also gluten free, which is a bonus. I'm not gluten intolerant but many people are. Its good practice for companies to include this information on their packaging.
Aside from the macadamia and hazelnuts in this bar, there are also peanuts. A mixture of seeds also features - pumpkin seeds, sunflower and sesame with puffed rice as well. Because there is no coating on this bar like the Divine and Dream bars, you can see all the ingredients packed together.
The bar is difficult to bite into because the honey is like toffee. The bar crunched up in my teeth satisfyingly. The honey taste is not at all overpowering in this bar. I tasted the nuts for the most part. But peanut flavour is the most dominate nut flavour to me. Macadamia is a subtle nut flavour and even the hazelnut was masked by the peanut flavour.
I found this bar delicious and filling. But not a bar I would purchase if I was really keen on tasting macadamia. Its just a delicious nut and seed filled bar.
Random listing from 'Food'...
Our Sesame flavour is lightly toasted to bring out the sesame seed's essential oils, adding a healthy kick to the Preztel Crisps's delicious crunch. Sesame seeds are naturally rich in iron, magnesiium, manganese, copper, calcium, vitamin B1, vitamin E and a good source of lignans - which have natural antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.
Health qualities aside, one bite and you'll be saying "Open sesame!" again and again.
