Frank Bars Honest Snacking - Gluten, Nut & Dairy Free





I answered a tweet asking for bloggers to review Frank bars. I am familiar with the brand from last year’s Allergy & Free From Show. A Frank bar is free from gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts & seeds (other than those naturally found in fruit), additives, preservatives, colourings, salt and sugars. They are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans. I note there are no “may contain” warnings on the label which is positive and should please some of my readers with allergies. There is a page on the Frank website dedicated to allergen information which gives reassurance to Free From customers like myself. Pat on the back to them for attention to detail because many websites can lack this information.

Frank bars are available in a variety of flavours, you can choose between Blueberry & Chocolate, Oat & Chocolate, Double Chocolate, Orange & Chocolate and Strawberry & Chocolate (or just have them all). They are made from around 50% dried fruit (dates & plum) and the dairy free chocolate is made with coconut cream. I know I have a reader who can't have pea protein so unfortunately these are not suitable for you.

Frank bars compare well to my favourite snack bars from Nakd but there are differences in terms of texture. Frank bars are firm and solid in comparison. My favourite is the Double Chocolate because a) I'm a chocoholic and b) there is a pleasant hint of coconut cream which I don’t pick up in the others. Orange and Strawberry are two of my allergies so I fed those to my Boyfriend. He’d make a rubbish blogger because his mind blowing review consisted of “it’s was all right, I’d have it again, could have wrapped it in chocolate” (FYI the bars are topped with chocolate rather than fully coated). His other contribution to this blog post was Creative Director for photographs, I shall leave it there.

If you want to know where you can buy Frank bars there is a list of stockists on the website (click here). I note Asda stores are now stocking them but I’d like to see Frank bars in other major supermarkets (I lack a decent Asda where I live). There is an online shop but it’s currently awaiting re-launch. 

Have you tried Franks Bars? Do you have a favourite flavour?

  2. I've heard a lot about these and the different varieties really sound delicious! Amazing that it's free from nuts as well as I always find it so hard to find health bars without them x

    1. I understand from other readers who can't have nuts how hard it can be to find things, so I was pleased to see these would be suitable :-)
