Review of beond organic apple cinnamon bar

Now I’m a girl who likes her mid morning snack. I have tried a few alternatives to my old favourite Nature Valley bars but I still seem to have these by default. So I am making a real effort to try alternative snack bars. So when I stumbled across beond snack bars and discovered that they did an apple and cinnamon flavour I decided to give it a try.
I was drawn to the deep brown packaging and the small green apple to the front of the packaging. On the edge of the packaging and in white writing the snack bar is clearly labelled as being raw, vegan, dairy free, gluten free and paleo. On the ingredients list the only allergen highlighted is cashews. There is no may contain warning.
On opening the packet I was expecting something similar to the recent snack bars that I have tried ie: like the Nakd, or Rude Health snack bars. It was indeed similar. It was dark with small chunks of apple within the bar. There was a subtle sweet aroma from the dates with hint of cinnamon intermingled within this. I would personally describe as something similar to that of an apple cereal bar with a bit of date thrown in for luck. It’s texture was slightly sticky to the outside and a little gooey to touch. On biting into the bar I got a combination textures which worked really well together. It was soft and slightly gooey intermingled with a slightly crunchy tough element from the apples. As for the flavour the apple element was spot on not too strong or overpowering. The intermittent hit of cinnamon broke this up nicely. The dates and fruit juices added a slightly sweet element intermingled with this. I loved every element of this snack bar from the flavours through to the textures. All worked perfectly together.
So would I recommend this snack, yes I would. It made a refreshing change to have a bar that differs in consistency to those that are like Nakd bars. I enjoyed everything about this bar especially the chunks of apple. So if you are dairy free like me, follow a gluten free, soya free, paleo or vegan diet give these a try. They make a nice filling sweet treat and have made my mid morning snack list. So thanks beond for producing a nice snack bar that I can enjoy.
