Other points to note:
  • In terms of size, we thought that these were the perfect size to carry in your pocket and eat whilst exercising
  • The texture of the bars were really moist and easy to eat
  • The flap jack textured ones tasted really good
  • But some of the more seeded protein bars were not as easy to eat or quite as tasty
  • Some of their protein bars also have the ‘Informed Sport / Trusted by Sport’ stamp on it to indicate that that product has been certified for banned substances

About GetBuzzing

The concept of their bars is based on wholesome food in a bar which is nut free and 100% on taste and this was started by Kate Wallace, the brand owner.  They bars are completely natural, approved by the vegetarian society and they are also 100% nut free, which is rare in this industry.  They offer everyone, including Nut Allergy sufferers, natural long lasting energy as a sustainable snack which actually tastes good. They were made in the hope that people would stop aimlessly snacking on nothingness junk and pick up whole food nutrition in a bar.  And that’s the beauty of getbuzzing products, they can be used by such a wide range of audiences; from toddlers to professional athletes.  They have called the company GetBuzzing as getbuzzing is a mentality, an outlook on life, rather than just a product.

    I do love the sound of these, I was sad to read that the vanilla one did not score as high as the others as that would have been my first choice.

      Yes unfortunately the others which were more like flapjack were better flavoured for us anyway…you may enjoy that.

    I might look into these as I’m currently half marathon training and need something with added boost for recovery and muscle build with the the protein. I was looking forward to the vanilla one, shame it was only a 5 on your scoring.

    My daughter uses the gym a lot and was looking for ways of getting more protein. She tried a drink this week that was stomach churning – not successful at all. These bars could be just the answer she is looking for! Thank you for your honest review and the scoring of the bars. I will share with her later x

    Oh I love the sound of the banana one! They’re not cheap but then decent food does cost more and it’s handy to have something in your bag that’s nutritional for when the kids get hungry too.

    I’ve never been a fan of protein bars, but would be willing to give these a go as a few sound delish, great way to start of the day.

    What a great idea to have a snack bar containing no nuts. They look scrummy

      It was Kara, fab idea too

  21. February 20, 2018 / 4:54 am

    These look delicious!! Personally I’m not a fan of protein bars because I haven’t found one that I liked the taste of… Maybe these will tickle my fancy!

  22. February 20, 2018 / 11:24 pm

    I’m planning on doing a lot of hiking soon and these would be perfect to try out for my little trips! Normally I’d go straight for chocolate but I’d be interested to try the vanilla or the banana one!

    • yeahlifestyle

      February 22, 2018 / 10:16 am

      Yes the other flavours are great to try out too.

  23. February 21, 2018 / 5:33 am

    A close friend of mine has a nut allergy (only developed recently) so I’ll recommend her these! Too bad that the vanilla one scored low for you, I love everything with vanilla and had gotten my hopes up 🙂
    Somehow, cereal bars aren’t really a thing here in Korea with the exception of some “diet bars” so whenever I travel, I love picking up some at local stores haha…

  24. February 21, 2018 / 10:19 am

    I don’t eat a lot of protein bars but these sound good, especially with the variety of flavours available.

  25. February 21, 2018 / 1:49 pm

    These sound awesome. They’d be great or a pre run or a post run snack! High protein so that’s great!

      Totally! Great option for those who have nut allergy

    These seem really great! Mint chocolate sounds incredible. Great review, as always!
