Made purely with fruits, nuts, seeds, and honey, it doesn't get much simpler than these sticky, chewy, crunchy bars. They're fantastic fuel during outdoor endeavors or when an afternoon pick-up is needed. The flavors and ingredients are well-balanced for a reward that isn't over-the-top sweet.

Since our original review, HoneyBars (known as Mariani HoneyBars in the U.S.) have had an image and flavor overhaul.

HoneyBars (Review) - dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free & wholesome

Almost all of the founding HoneyBars flavors have been retired, and replace by new on-trend options. However, the Sweet & Salty and Trail Mix flavors have stayed in the mix. We have sampled the latter.

Trail Mix HoneyBars live up to their name as a delicious, nutritious choice for a long day of hiking or biking.  Soft and sticky, this generous handful of premium trail mix is glued together with a dollop of high quality honey.  Conveniently packaged as a bar, the combination of peanuts, honey, raisins, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and almonds is sure to please most.  As to be expected, Trail Mix HoneyBars are high in good fats, moderately high in sugars, and have a strong level of protein.  Although this may not be the bar for everyday snacking, it is perfect for moderately paced endurance activities.

The other flavors of HoneyBars have similar wholesome, fruit, nut and seed ingredients. And of course, all are sweetened solely with honey.
