Cos’ I’m all about the snacks! Seriously. Recently, thanks to being a FitApproach #sweatpink ambassador, I got to try out these brand spanking new Hemp Heart Bars from Manitoba Harvest. I *heart* hemp hearts. Like seriously they are SUPER good for you and I’ve reviewed the Manitoba Hemp Hearts, and was eager to try out these new bars they came out with! So before we get into the snacks, let’s get the legal smeagle out the way. Yes I received these products free to review, but all opinions are my own. I keep it real yo!
Hemp Heart Bars – snacking on the go!
In my goody box I got two of the three new flavors to try, chocolate and apple-cinnamon, but there is also a vanilla flavor. Each bar is 45g and 230 calories, has 10g of plant-based protein (yes these bars are Vegan) and are non-GMO. Plus they have a whopping 10g of Omega fats! Interesting fact, hemp hearts are a complete plant based protein source! Anyway, that’s all well and good but how did they taste? Well initially I was expecting a crunchy bar for some reason, and nope, it’s a chewy bar. You can find details on their website for full ingredients. I tried the chocolate on the go between personal training clients.
It was pretty good. I liked the chewy texture. I did feel the hemp overpowered the chocolate a little and I would have preferred something sweeter. Or more bitter dark chocolate tasting, but I’m a chocolate snob (Remember I hail from Europe, we make good chocolate!) so take that into consideration.

Then flash forward a few days and BAM I end up sidelined on the couch with flu. Wow this was a doozy, well it still is. I am still completely congested with sinus/head pressure and still battling a cough. Not afraid to admit that this virus kicked my ass.
As soon as I could breathe again a little I managed to get some work down online so time to try the other Hemp Heart Bar I think! This one was the apple and cinnamon and out of the two bars I received this one was definitely my favorite. Nice sweetness that really pairs well with the hemp. Plus I need those healthy Omegas to help combat this flu. Again, nice and chewy and as the only thing I could taste anymore was sweet things this Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bar was just the ticket for an afternoon snack.
Again you can use the code hhbarlaunch1015 on their website for 15% off, but in the interests of saving YOU my lovely friends some pennies I checked out Amazon and there is a better deal on Amazon right now.
