High5 Chocolate Orange energy bar
Good value, nice tasting but perhaps a little rich for some
High5’s chocolate orange energy bar is mainly formulated with dried fruits (dates and sultanas) and ground cashew nuts (20%).
It also contains 5% chocolate chips, which, along with the natural orange extract, give the bar its chocolate orange flavour. It’s a bit of a different take on flavour compared to the usual fruit and/or nut options but by no means unwelcome.
In testing, the flavour was considered authentic without being overly sweet while the moist, slightly nutty texture was easy to swallow. The downside was that the bar felt a bit heavy on the stomach after eating – no doubt due to the relatively high fat content.
