MuleBar offers a choice of seven fairly unusual flavours from Hunza Nut to the tangy delight of Liquorice Allsports, Pinacolada to Summer Pudding, Apple Strudel to Mango Tango and Jimmy’s Choc Orange. There wasn’t a bad apple (strudel) amongst them in the taste-test and in addition to having great natural flavours their natural juiciness didn’t leave us feeling like we needed to reach for the bidon after every bite. If you’re looking for organic and Fairtrade credentials, Mulebar have these too…
These substantial, but not overly bulky, 56g bars certainly deliver on the nutrition front. Values vary between varieties but to take the Hunza Nut flavour as a fairly typical representation you can expect 197kcal with 38g of carbs (22g from sugars) and 3g of protein; fat it suitably low at 3g with just 0.4g being saturates.
Some of the flavours come in compostable wrappers (with a commitment to extending this to the full range eventually) and the company is also signed up to the ‘1% For the Planet’ scheme, with 1% of sales going to a network of more than 3000 global environmental organisations.
So: great taste, goodly amounts of energy from organic, Fairtrade sources, charitable and with a sense of fun, there’s really nothing to dislike as far as TriGear are concerned.
