PRODUCT REVIEW – in a way

Those lovely people at Fuel My Blog arranged for some snacks to be delivered to me to try, made by Wholebake.
Unfortunately, Daddy Papersurfer got to them before I did, so I can’t say much except *grumph*.



I did notice however that the makers were probably old hippies as the bars contained hemp, had a picture of weed on the packaging and even the name, 9 Bar, has connotations with the days of ‘peace and love’. [9 Bar is a term used by dealers for a 9 ounce bar of pot – DP didn’t know anything about all this, I had to tell him].

Anyway, he said they were delicious, although he found the individual bars rather large and filling. He would have preferred there were four smaller bars rather then three large ones.
They are the sort of snack he likes, healthy and all that, but be warned, they are still quite calorific, so don’t assume healthy means non-fattening.

If Mark, who runs Wholebake, would like to send me some more, I would be very grateful. Some anti-DP device should be employed, like long words on the envelope to confuse him and then I might stand a chance of ‘getting me some’. I could go and buy some I suppose at Waitrose, Asda, Sainsbury, Tesco, Morrison’s or Holland & Barrett but I haven’t got any money – *grumph*.
