As an avid hiker I’m often looking for ideas on what to pack in my backpack to munch on when trailwalking and was introduced to Barnana – the super potassium snack. I love that these are bite sized and easy to share with friends when you’re hiking.
I was given a variety of flavours to try out – from the original flavour, peanut butter flavour (my favourite), chocolate and coconut. There’s other flavours as well and all are organic, natural, gluten and GMO free.
Did you know that 20% of bananas are wasted at the farm as they don’t meet retailer expectations? Barnana ensures there is zero waste farming by sustainably upcycling these bananas, resulting in an additional income for organic banana farmers and not to mention these are very tasty treats!
Crafted from chewy organic bananas that have been dehydrated for you to enjoy. The original flavour was rather nice, sweet without being too sweet.
The dehydration process means that the naturally occurring sugars caramelise and condense. For the chocolate fans out there you’ll adore the chocolate covered banana bites (whilst I’m not a big fan of chocolate – that is to say, I’m not one who can sit there and eat a block of chocolate by myself – though I have friends who can easily devour that – I quite liked the bite sized portions… it was enough chocolate for me without resulting in my feeling ill afterwards – I envy those who can easily indulge in chocolate!)
This bite sized product is organic, gluten and dairy free and non-GMO. If you’re a fan of coconut rough – you’ll really enjoy the coconut flavour. The texture in this chewy bite is incredible.
Barnana has no refined sugar, preservatives or cholesterol and has 18 months of shelf life. The Peanut Butter version was by far my favourite out of all the flavours I was given.
With Barnana, you’ll get the energy boost you need to continue hiking and taking in the gorgeous scenes of Mother Nature at her best. It’s a great healthy treat for whatever you’re into – even post-workouts, mountain-bike trails, sports etc. It’ll keep you going and it’s great for you too.
