9 bars.

23.4.11

I recently won a giveaway on Sofia's Journal and the prize was a sampler pack of 9 Bars. What is a 9 Bar you say?

9Bar is a deliciously nutricious seed bar designed to get the maximum nutritional goodness from seeds in a convenient and tasty way, so its no great surprise to find the main ingredient of a 9Bar is a blend of wholesome seeds. Sunflower seeds form the main base of the bar but the mix also includes pumpkin, poppy, sesame and the legendary hemp. The flax variety has added flax, or linseed as it is often better known, one of the best plant sources of Omega 3. Seeds are a nutritionally dense food containing a wide range of nutrients including minerals, vitamins, essential amino and fatty acids. As part of a balanced, healthy diet seeds can provide a wide range of nutrients.

Plus they are wheat free, gluten free, dairy free, lactose free, yeast free and egg free!


I was pleasantly surprised by the bars, and I intend to order some more from the site very soon. My favourite bar was the nutty variety, and I didn't dislike any of the others (original, pumpkin, flax and organic).

I was surprised by the size of the bars - they're a generous size and certainly very filling. The amount of calories in each bar was higher than I thought, but it was no higher than a bar of chocolate which isn't particularly good for you or filling in any way. These serve as a great snack but also a way to keep the hunger at bay.

Have you tried any of the flavours?
