The Primal Pantry Paleo Bars Review

I first came across The Primal Pantry Raw Paleo snack bars at a health food show in London. Little chunks of them were on offer to taste, and I kept going back for more. They’re truly delicious.

If you love nuts and dates, you’re bound to like The Primal Pantry Paleo bars. There are five varieties available (at the time of writing) and you don’t have to be a Paleo follower to enjoy these little beauties.

Here are a couple of new Stevia sweeteners recently spotted on the shelves of a Morrison’s supermarket.

While I don’t personally use spreads like butter any more, my family still spread butter on their toast etc. and my elder daughter does lots of baking with butter. So I decided to let them be the judge. Of course, I did try some myself…
