I bought these for a great little snack in the afternoon but then started to find the texture and taste slightly change. Over around a year, I saw that the original chocolate slice went through many phases. It began as a nice, perfect (not too crumbly) slice, then became compact and hard. I started getting ripped off with the chocolate, only receiving one tiny piece per slice. It got to the point where every box I bought was completely different. The ingredient quantities changed but no new information was displayed on the packets. Wouldn't recommend!

The better snack for us besides icecream and choclates when kids want a kiddie treat. And i love them too as an on the run mum. Healthy and sooo tasty! My kids dont eat snakes and lollies so great substitute. Soft enough to eat for all the family.. tods to parents to grandparents.
I agree with other reviews that "something is not right" with this product. They always taste like chemical, bad, man made chemical !
I understand production methods and I think it comes from the toxic, poisonous plastic wrapping being put on the food product while the plastic is still hot and just formed which could /would taint the contents with a chemical taste.
I think the product is suspect and will not eat them further,
Our milk is filled into plastic containers as it is blow formed and the milk acts as a cooling agent for the plastic helping to cool it and form its finished shape.
Something wrong with these bars
I am not one to easily get sick from food but couple of weeks ago I got so sick and ended up throwing up entire day and and night. At the time I wrote it off to something being wrong with dinner because only other thing I ate that day was this almond and honey bar but didn’t think that would ever make me so sick. Yesterday I had one of those bars at work for lunch and by afternoon I was so violently ill throwing up in a bin at work. There is nothing in the ingredients that ever caused such a reaction for me before these. Never touching them again. I still feel sick.
I keep these on my desk at work!
I have a box of these on my desk at work! I can't get enough! I like the ones with the bits of chocolate in it the best, and if you heat it up slightly it just melts in your mouth!
I wish more came in the box, like muesli bars, so that they would last longer but I'm happy to go with what they offer for now.
Questions & Answers
I do like the almond, grain and honey Oaty Slice - however I am concerned about their calories and fat content. I eat one of these each day with a fairly regular sort of diet. I am trying to lose weight but am I sabotaging my progress because of these bars?? Liz
These slices contain 181.5 Calories each, but they do contain about 27% fat (of which 40% is saturated (bad) fats), 10% protein and 44.5% carbs. They also contain 20% sugar (8.5g). and only about 5% fibre. Given the small size and total calories, I wouldn't say that you are impeding on your progress, but I would advise that you stick to one a day as the sugar and saturated fats are on the high side.

Baked Oaty Slices contain fibre and wholegrain cereals and can be consumed as part of a balanced diet when eaten in moderation. They are not designed as a weight loss product, however can be enjoyed if replacing other food choices with similar nutritional value.
