Good Full Stop Snack Bar Review & Reader Offer

When you enter a giveaway and actually win, it’s such a buzz isn’t it?

This is something I rarely get to experience myself, so you can imagine my delight when a notification popped up on my phone to say that I’d been selected as the lucky winner of a #FreebieFriday giveaway on Twitter. The prize was an assortment of Good Full Stop snack bars 😋

I was really chuffed as I’d been wanting to try these bars for ages. They’re produced by a company based in Devon, South West England (so not far from me) and I’d read lots of good things about them. On the website, the bars are described as being made with ‘natural, wholesome ingredients’ with ‘a hint of naughtiness’.

Chocolate Rose Energy Balls

For this month’s entry to the Suma Blogger’s Network, I’m sharing a recipe for one of my all-time favourite snacks – Chocolate Rose Energy Balls They taste more like a decadent treat than a snack, yet they’re packed with nutrient-rich energy-fuelling ingredients.

Chocolate Rose Energy Bites

Filled with wholegrain oats, nuts, dates and cacao, each ball provides a healthy does of protein, heart-healthy fats, slow release carbs, as well as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are really satiating, so I find that just one is enough to fill me whenever I need an energy boost or afternoon snack.

They’re easily portable, so perfect for stashing in backpacks for day trips and bike rides. They also make a great after school snack. Lil’ L loves them! Continue reading
