When Wild Thing contacted me looking to collaborate, I couldn’t say no to their exciting and vibrant Paleo bars. I knew that this was a company who I’d love working with as their ethos complements mine – bio, vegan, organic, Paleo and generally wholesome food without comprising the delicious factor!
I’m a big advocator for eating Organic foods because organic paleo food is grown without pesticides and in a way that helps bio-diversity thrive. It also guarantees that there are no additives, chemicals or unacceptable processing added during production. That’s why I love that Wild Thing organic paleo bars are made exclusively with raw ingredients.
– BERRIES AND SEEDS: On an initial impression, I loved the look of this Wild Thing bar – the deep, vibrant purple colour and funky design gives the whole company and snacking experience a fun and carnival-like feel to it. And that’s exactly the sensation you experience when biting into the bar – a burst of wholesome nutty and berryilicious yumminess (sunflower seeds, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, blueberries, goji berries) 👍 I also loved the texture, the chewiness of the bar is perfectly complemented by the crunch of some of the bigger nuts such as the pumpkin seeds to give an all-round delicious tasting experience👌
– COCONUT & CHIA: Loved the crunchy, flapjack-like texture to this bar. I’d say that it was actually my favourite one as it was sweet (I have a major sweet tooth) due to the main ingredients being dates, coconut and cashews. But it had truly divine taste – similar to that of golden syrup – which perfectly complemented the slightly more bitter taste of the chia seeds.
– CACAO & ALMOND: Heightened by the luscious smell of cacao, I was particularly excited to try out this flavour – and I definitely wasn’t disappointed! Biting into the bar, my tastebuds were awakened by the strong taste of cacao – in all its raw, natural, bitter and earthly glory ❤️ Think it is the perfect bar as a not too indulgent, guilt-free treat as its’ not overly sweet or decadent – so is absolutely the right snack to curb any hunger pangs or chocolate cravings without the feeling of guilt/ failed self control afterwards. Also loved how the chewy texture was broken up by small chunks of almonds to provide a crunch every now and again 🙂
– NUTS & SEEDS: I’m simply in love with all things nutty so this bar was delicious in my opinion! It had a slightly different texture to the others due to its composition of various nuts and seeds (sunflower seeds, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds) and is crunchier, more grainy and has small pieces of nuts/ seeds distributed throughout the bar which I quite enjoyed as each bite has a slightly different taste and crunch to it 🙂 I was happy to find that there wasn’t simply one nut/ seed which overpowered the others in terms of flavour, each nut/ seed was definitely present in an equal and complementary way 👌 Absolutely divine!
