Yu Bars Review and Competition

We were sent four of these fruit bars (wild berry, cherry, apricot and strawberry) to try out here.  The boys reluctantly let me have the apricot one for myself, but it was touch and go!  They did try and hog the four between them.


Yu bars are real fruit and cereal covered in yoghurt.  So the perfect breakfast on the go, if you have managed to feed and water the children but not quite sorted yourself out in the manic morning school rush.


The bars have quite a sweet taste but are nice and filling, they gave me a welcome respite from the “I’m hungry” every five seconds routine my boys so love.

Here they are bonding over a shared love of these bars.  They kept taking bites out of each other’s to savour the different flavours.


Great mid morning energy boost if your starting to nod off with non stop entertaining of children over the Easter holidays.

A three pack of Yu bars costs £1.79 and are available to buy from Tesco.  You can read more about them here http://www.yu-rules.co.uk/ and enter their newsletter competition for the chance to win a family holiday!

I have three packs to giveaway to one winner.  To enter complete the rafflecopter below by 25th of April.
