NINE seed bars - Gluten Free 🌱

Hi, has anyone tried these NINE bars? You can get cocoa and raspberry, original seed, pumpkin and sunflower etc.

The ones I am thinking of buying are the peanut seed ones 20 bars for Β£10. I don’t usually buy things like this but need something convenient. I thought they might be ideal when out working or walking but not if they are not nice or if someone can suggest a better option. I’m not too fond of fruity bars though.

This is the ingredients in the peanut seed ones which I think probably aren’t that unhealthy. Any feedback would be appreciated πŸ™‚

Sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and dehulled hemp seeds (45%)roasted peanuts (35%), rice syrup, sugar, vegetable oils and salt.

Thanks

I've not tried those Ali but Aldis sell their own raw fruit bars which I love. One of them is Paleo Macadamia and Coconut and there are others, I love them all.

Oh ok. Thanks. Macadamia and coconut sounds good. I tried the peanut trek bars, they are nice but they are packed with dates and they hurt your teeth lol or maybe I just need to go to the dentist!

They also do Hazelnut & Cacao, Almond & Cashew and Cashew Crush, what makes you think I have all if those in my cupboard lol. I absolutely love them and even more when they come out of the fridge. πŸ˜€

Well you’ve sold it to me. I’m going to buy some of those. (Unless you’ve got them all stashed in your fridge lol)

I love them and they are so handy when out and about, I think they are much better than Nak'd bars. Oops, maybe I do have the stock stashed away lol 🀣🀣

Rice syrup, sugar and veg oil πŸ€”... not so great. How about you making seed/nut bars and freezing some for later use? Or just take a banana out with you ?

Yes, that’s another option. I know I did wonder about the sugar and oil. I’m not that good with fruit and bananas are okay if I eat them the day I buy them, I was just looking at another option rather than making the bars as we make everything and sometimes it’s nice to have some convenience but like you said, if I could freeze them that would be an option πŸ‘πŸ™‚

There's an increase in snack foods that bear some semblance to whole foods. I think these are the snack foods of the future.

Thanks Andy. πŸ™‚

I wasn't too keen on nine... not very yummy. We like nakd bars. Cocoa crunch, blueberry muffin. Really good for walking/running.

I see what's on offer and try different ones. I really like Frusili Red Berry but if you're not into fruity ones won't be for you.

Thank you. I have now tried the NINE peanut and seed bars and I love them. Although I have to say I’ve nothing to compare them to as I’ve not had these things before. I’m going to try the ones that have been recommend to me on here and get a little selection together. Eating these will stop me having so much bread. That’s the plan anyway. I will try the ones you’ve suggested, thank you πŸ‘πŸŒ±πŸ˜

I’ve just nipped down to sainsburys and got some nakd bars. I was impressed by the lack of ingredients! πŸ‘πŸ™‚

Yes!! Properly transparent! πŸ‘πŸ˜ much tastier than they look once opened too! 🀣

I bought the bakewell and cashew cookie ones. πŸ‘πŸŒ±

I've tried neither of those but the ones we get are so good I'd be surprised if they can't keep it up across the range πŸ‘
