Perkier Foods was founded by Ann Perkins and Steve Turner with a mission of bringing the nation a healthy on-the-go snack made with the most nutritious ingredients. All Perkier bars are gluten-free and plant-based and never use palm oil. We were lucky enough to try a couple of the bars and give our verdict.
Peanut Quinoa Bar
I found the peanut quinoa bar to be really delicious and definitely moreish. The whole chunks of peanut were really satisfying and along with the quinoa and sticky peanut butter created a really tasty and delicious bar. Each of these 35g snack bars contains 150 calories, 10g of sugar, and a hefty 6g of protein meaning they are ideal as a grab-and-go healthy snack for fuelling while training or re-fuelling afterwards.
The Peanut Quinoa bar by Perkier is also high in fibre, rich in antioxidants, and vegan and gluten-free so it's suitable for people on free-from diets.
I really enjoyed this bar and found myself wanting more! It was perfect to take on long runs and was a delicious snack that I could look forward to after miles of running.
Goji & Cranberry Quinoa Bar
I was really impressed by the Goji and Cranberry bar. It was really tangy and refreshing thanks to the mixed fruit while the quinoa and soya crunchies added a delightful crunch. Goji berries have a whole host of health benefits such as boosting your mood and promoting healthy eyes, skin, and hair. Goji berries aren't an ingredient I would usually find in my diet and so having them present in this handy bar was a real bonus.
The Goji and Cranberry Quinoa bar by Perkier contains 129 calories, 14g sugar and 5g protein. The low calorie content means it is perfect for those trying to lose weight as well as giving to children in their lunchbox or as an after-school snack.
I instantly fell in love with the Perkier bars as they are so tasty and moreish. The texture is really great and they taste a lot more unhealthy than they actually are! They serve several purposes as you could eat one before, during, or after exercise and they're ideal as a low-calorie snack to curb mid-morning hunger or to give children who are hungry before dinner. Each bar contains whole, organic ingredients that a lot of people usually wouldn't eat which not only makes them interesting but also very beneficial to your health. It's got to be a 10 from me for Perkier!
