If you know me, you would know that I am partial to my snack bars and can have them at any time of the day, thanks to the convenience of grabbing them, and the relatively better ingredients compared to chips and chocolates. I was recently sent some samples of the ASAP bars by the brand, and believe it or not, I was nibbling into one of them as soon as I opened the pack! These delicious snack bars have been my go-to mid-meal snack for the past few days. Read on to find out more about these droolicious nutrition bars.
I received 2 packs of the ASAP bars in the assorted flavours – Fruit and White Chocolate, Almond and Dark Chocolate, and Cashew, Almond and Caramel. The name ASAP stands for “As Simple As Possible”, which is what is reflected by the ingredients of these bars. They contain oats, rice crispies, nuts, honey and brown sugar with a thin coating of chocolate/caramel to add the gooey factor. Tastewise, they are quite different and better than most of the nutrition bars I have tried recently. Unlike many bars that taste largely of peanuts and rice crispies, with these ones you can actually taste the almonds and other nuts as well as the oats.
The texture of these bars is also perfect and they are not too hard to bite into nor too soft to break easily. All three flavours have a distinct taste to them which is true to their respective names, but my personal favourite is the Fruit and White Chocolate variant because I am partial to white chocolate. I would also like to point out that with many nutrition bars, the chocolate doesn’t really taste like the chocolate we love but with the ASAP bars, the chocolate coating is milky and reminds me of high-quality chocolates. The only thing that I would wish to change is the sugar content, which is a little high for my liking, but this is a personal preference and the sweetness may, in fact, make these bars a great alternative for those who are trying to slowly transition towards a healthy lifestyle.
Overall, I feel that the ASAP bars are a filling and delicious snack which is a great way to keep yourselves full until the next meal or when you are out and about. They are also pretty affordable with a price point of INR 180 for a box of 6 bars. The ASAP bars can be purchased on Amazon and I would recommend trying at least one pack, I am sure you will fall in love with these delightful yet healthy treats.
