Snack Check: why our sweets are nailing healthy snacking
It's never too much bragging about our custom-made menus at The Jar Healthy Vending. Yes, we are really proud of our local healthy treasures selection.
From juices, micronutrients-infused water and sweet snacks to proper meals - everything has the perfect balance of taste and nutritious goodness.
But surely, a little proof of awesomeness goes a long way.
Our team prepared a snack check to see which products make it to the top of the list to become the best sweet addition to your midday lunch break with The Jar Healthy Vending.
For those who are spoiled with chocolates and sweets, this is the saviour of the day. Imagine high-grade Swiss chocolate but with 46% less sugar? Definitely a better option among other convenience shop bars. Healthy, tasty and absolutely satisfying - which is why it goes 5th in our list.
Nutritious Check: gluten-free and vegan, Sweet'n'Salty bar contains organic almonds which boost brain health and are a great source of Vitamin E.
Might be just the best choice for those sugar craving moments. It's vegan, filled with healthy ingredients (no joke) and nutritious nuts only (no peanuts), contains just 100 kcal per one cup and has literally nothing artificial in it.
It might not be as healthy as a slice of mango, but it surely satisfies your tastebuds in the best way possible. Do not compromise on taste with these guys!
Nutritious Check: organic dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants, it reduces blood pressure and helps to improve cognition, while hazelnuts, cashews and other healthy nuts only add up to the health benefits of your post lunch snack treat.
Now we are moving towards not just good taste providers but energy suppliers. Cacao and Match Press bar is one of those energy boosters with superfood infused incredible taste.
This guilt free snack might be the most 'balanced' bar due to lower sugar content but high source of protein.
Nutritious Check: matcha is a well-known superfood with anti-ageing, antioxidant properties good for digestion, mental health and cognition.
So you've been onto some heavy mental tasks for quite some time and desperately need glucose to boost your mood and brain health. We suggest a ground-breaking alternative to chocolate - dates. Just as sweet as any conventional treat, dates however come with a lot of health benefits.
Nutritious Check: Source of potassium - contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system. High in fibre and low in fat.
P.S. There is a legend that if you consume 7 dates a day, you won't be harmed with any evil. Also, the best choice for your iftar this Ramadan!
The first time I've tried it - I couldn't think of any other snack I was craving so much for. The whole selection of Pollen and Grace Super Squares is an absolute hot find.
Dates would have been in the first place in our list in terms of nutritious value, however we do realise that chocolatey, creamy taste might be this special something people are craving for while choosing their midday treat. Well, you've found it.
Nutritious Check: each Super Square has some kind of superfood, which upgrades your snack x10 in terms of nutritious value. Hazelnut Square has an adaptogen Reishi, which is a treasure in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
