Carman's Muesli Bites: Hunger Savers (14 Sept 2009)


Bite-Sized Hunger Savers

Thanks to a competition run by Jenius I was lucky enough to win a set of Carman's Muesli Bites to try. Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE free stuff — my middle name is free (or it should be anyway). I've noticed these on the supermarket shelves and it looks like Carman's is really embracing the social media platform by providing samples to food bloggers I follow like A Table for Two, Chocolatesuze, Fig and Cherry, Citrus and Candy and Jenius. One thing is for certain, whether it's right or wrong, is if you give food to a food blogger, it's very hard for them to resist photographing it and blogging about it — it's perhaps our passion and weak spot. It's sometimes hard to be objective if you receive something for free because your also trying to the gracious about it as well. I find the size of these muesli bars convenient when you're in need of a quick snack which isn't too heavy. They've saved me a few times now at work when I've had a few meetings in a row and can't quite get to lunch as well as a light afternoon pick me up snack. Even though they're not mind blowingly tasty I feel like I'm eating something reasonably healthy. Being Australian made and owned has got to be a good thing too.

Free stuff makes me smiley too >:D

On a side note, Zenya noodle-bar (on your wishlist) is definitely worth a go; the ramen is reasonably-priced and there are some pretty nifty combos. But stay away from Kuali if you value your tastebuds :P
