We were sent a sample of Pulsin’ Kids Bars, William (age7), official Chief Tester for Entertain the Kids wouldn’t settle until we let him try them.
If I am completly honest, we have sampled bars before and they were not very nice, so I didn’t really have high hopes for the Pulsin’ bars.
One-by-one we opened the bars, just breaking off a little bit for me and William and “I am a convert”. William simply loved them all, exagerated “yummi” noises were now in full swing and he wanted to finish the bars but I had other plans.
As a parent, I would happily pop these into William’s lunch box as a “sweet treat” in place of chocolate or biscuits. The packaging and images are really appealing and fresh. Definitely a healthier alternative and they are “Gluten Free”.
Let’s play a “taste test” game
So, once out of the wrapper, the bars are identical. I chopped the into pieces onto separate plates and put the wrapper under the plate, out of site. I asked William to try them and guess the flavour and choose his favourite.
William was 100% with his answers and, although he loved them all, his order of favourites are:
- Apple & Blackcurrant
- Orange Choc Chip
I was surprised because I thought his favourite would be Orange Choc Chip, my favourite.
Now for the official bit
