Blue Dinosaur Bars
Now that I'm back home in Australia for a while I couldn't resist reviewing Blue Dinosaur bars.
They make paleo snack bars made with organic and natural ingredients including organic coconut, dates, nuts and sulphur free organic fruit. They are gluten, soy and dairy free, containing no preservatives, added sugars, colours, stabilisers, flavours, or anything artificial. They do well getting the flavours right. The main ingredient in their bars is coconut.
As well as trying their main bars I have also tested their NEW Super Bite bars.
Price: around $3.45 each
Super Bites around $2.90 each
This is my favourite flavour! If you don't know what a Lamington is, it's a popular Australian dessert. It's like a sponge cake with chocolate and coconut on the outside. This pretty much tastes like a Lamington! Just without the sponge. Most of these bars are quite crumbly actually. But this tasted so good! This one is my favourite. If only it was a bit less crumbly it would be perf.
2. Banana Bread
This one is chewy and not crumbly. It tastes like banana bread, maybe a bit too coconuty. But nice flavours.
3. Dark Cacao
Definitely dark cacao. This bar holds together better. It is a little bitter from the cacao. Still sweet though. You can taste the pecans. Being Blue Dinosaurs only chocolate flavour I almost wanted it to be a bit more chocolate.. Maybe their next flavour? I actually discovered two little date pit bits in my mouth while I was eating it so be careful. They do mention to be careful of that on their packaging! At least you know it's natural AF.
This has a slight blueberry flavour. Not too much going on but overall it was tasty and sweet.
5. Sour Cherry
This bar is also a bit denser. I have to say Blue Dinosaur do well getting the flavours right. There is a little sourness. You can taste the sour cherry and coconut equally. Light flavours, nothing overpowers, and the cherry flavour tastes natural.
6. Mac' Lemon
Great soft flavours. Natural lemon flavour. Lemon and coconut go extremely well together. If you love lemon flavoured snacks you'll love this one.
