Oats fans will appreciate this snack. The taste of oats is prominent, compacted together with sweet syrups, it gives you a sweet chewy taste with the odd oat crunch. The white chocolate melts in your mouth to offer a creamy after taste. It is sweet and may be a bit much for those who don’t have a sweet tooth. A great tasty oat snack, its sweetness the only downside 4/5

Overall score and thoughts:
The Jungle oats brand is a family favourite, known for its quality breakfast oats, the bars make for great addition to its product line. It is tasty and stays true to its oats roots. There are many variants, ensuring your taste buds won’t go bored. The only downside is the high sugar and fat levels which make it a snack to be eaten on the odd occasion or when doing exercise.
