Fossil Fuel bars

As Monkey and I are often going off on a new adventure I need to think of different things to pack in my bag to keep my energy levels up.  I was recently sent some Fossil Fuel bars and I was looking forward to giving them a taste test.

Fossil Fuel bars

Fossil Fuel produce paleo/primal Macadamia & Cacao and Coconut & Cashew bars which contain only natural ingredients.  The bars contain no refined sugar, additives, preservatives or sulphites and are also gluten free.

I have to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of coconut, but I love cashew nuts, so I had mixed feelings about trying the Fossil Fuel Coconut & Cashew bar.  Would I like it at all?

The bars consist of 53% dates, 25% cashew nuts, 19% dried coconut and 3% coconut oil.  I was pleasantly surprised, I didn’t find the coconut taste too over powering at all.  I’m not sure they’d be my first choice of snack bar, but Daddy P really does like this version a lot.

Next up – the Fossil Fuel Macadamia & Cacao.  Now this is where the family started to squabble.  These really are lush, and we have all been fighting over them!

Fossil Fuel bars

Made up of 60% dates, 20% cashew nuts, 11.6% macadamia nuts, 5% raw  cacao and I’m presuming 3.4% coconut oil (it doesn’t give the % of this on the package/website).  These really are delicious and as I’ve already mentioned, they are a big hit here.

These bars are available from the Fossil Fuel website, either in separate 12 x 50g packs or in a 12 x 50/50 split for £18.99.  I think £1.58 for this sort of paleo bar is good value for money and we give them the thumbs up here.

 

 

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
