CLOSED Yu Bars Review and giveaway ends 1st April

A BRAND NEW DELICIOUS AND HEALTHY SNACK RANGE FOR YU!

Conor gave up chocolate for Lent, he is not particularly religious, he just liked the idea of giving up a favourite food to see if he could. He is doing well. He still needs a snack for college days and when he fancies something yummy.  He eyed them cautiously as he says health bars are normally yuck!

I was asked to try out Yu Bars and also to give some away to my readers.

I wanted to try at least one and chose the wild berry, this bar appealed to my taste buds, sweet, delicious and if I had not promised Conor the rest, I would have reached for another.
I love the name. It sounds as if it should be a character on a TV ad for Yu Bars. The slightly naughty berry who keeps terrorising the other calmer berries!

First bite is a creamy yogurt coating, then a lovely crunchy chewy texture, finally a yummy fruit filling made,
with 40% fruit .
It works so well, its sweet enough to make you feel like you are having a treat, its low enough in calories to be a healthy snack. This bar is 133 calories.

They are half price in Tesco's at the moment 89p for a pack of three.

Conor loved them, he will be taking them on his weekly expeditions, he does a lot of walking as part of his college course, the Yu Bar will keep him going.
Yu! Bars
Available in strawberry, cherry, wild berry and apricot
RRP £1.79 per 3 x 30g bars

Yu Bar have kindly offered five followers the chance to win one box each.
