Snact Banana BarsIf you’re looking for ‘healthier’ type snack bars, it’s not hard to find them these days. From bliss balls to protein bars, there is no shortage of alternatives to chocolate bars.

Pure Bite 80 Calorie Crispy Snacks Review

Pure Bite popped rice clusters blueberry & cranberryAs someone who has long advocated the principle of snacks under 100 calories, I’m delighted to see that that Pubic Health England, through their Change4Life campaign, is recommending that children eat snacks with fewer than 100 calories. There’s no harm in adults doing the same!

With this in mind I was delighted to receive a sample of a snack by the company Bite UK Ltd called Pure Bites who have snacks with around 80 calories. They won a Great Taste Award in 2017 so I was looking forward to finding out what they’re all about.
