Healthy Snacking with Light Bites

Tuesday, 22 August 2017



I am a snacker and it is my greatest downfall. Whenever I'm hungry, you'll always find me reaching for a bag of crisps or the packet of Jaffa Cakes. So, when the people over at Light Bites got in touch and asked me to sample their range of snacks that you can buy exclusively in Superdrug (and now on 3 for 2!), I was extremely excited.


Light Bites have a range of different snacks including superfood bars, popped chips and, my personal favourite, the freeze dried fruit and yoghurt. All of the snacks are incredibly filling and also incredibly low calorie - there isn't one item in the range that's over 100 calories. I never thought I'd enjoy eating something with quinoa and chia seeds in it but the bars are insanely delicious. I'm not especially on a diet but I do try to eat right and not eat too much processed food as it makes me so bloated, but these bars would be perfect for you if you are dieting. In fact, they're included in the Lighter Life Fast 5:2 diet which is also available from Superdrug. On this diet, you can nibble on two Light Bites snacks on your fast day, as well as the four Lighter Life  fast products.


The range currently has 4 different superfood bars, 4 different gluten-free popped chips and 4 different types of freeze dried fruit. I have sampled most of the range and have to say, I really enjoyed trying them. I was sceptical at the start, especially of the Chocolate, Caramel and Cookie bar. I thought it would taste of fake chocolate, like quite a lot of these healthy 'chocolate' bars do. However, the chocolate was smooth, creamy and actually tasted of chocolate which I thought was a miracle. However, the bar that really stole the show for me was the Goji Berry, Quinoa and Chia Seed. I will for sure be buying a ton more of these. I'd never tried goji berries before but now I know I love them; they are ridiculously tasty. 


As for the popped chips, my favourite was 100% the Sweet & Smoky Chipotle.  I love BBQ things as it is, but these chips have just the right amount of smokiness and sweetness which make them completely delicious. Another firm favourite of mine was the Cheddar Cheese and Chutney which really just satisfies my constant cravings for cheese & onion crisps. The one flavour of these crisps I wasn't so keen on was the Roasted Shallot and Cider Vinegar. To me, they just weren't really my thing. I'm not a huge fan of vinegar and while I'm a firm believer that shallots are one of the greatest things to bless this earth, the taste of vinegar was a bit too much in these for me, and therefore I wasn't too much of a fan.  If you want to try out some of these popped chips then they're going to be 50% off at Superdrug starting tomorrow until the 19th of September!


For me, the stand out of the entire range is the freeze dried fruit. It melts in your mouth when you eat it and turns into a delicious mush in your mouth. My absolute favourite was the Mango and Vanilla Yoghurt one, which I was gutted I wasn't sent in my sample box, as it had been a stand-out to me! However, the Apple with Strawberry Yoghurt does rival it - the fruit flavours aren't fake tasting at all, they're natural and delicious and I've definitely found a new favourite snack in these. I like the ones that have yoghurt in them just because the creaminess really works well with the fruit flavours and creates not only a delicious texture, but also a fantastic flavour combination. I highly recommend trying these.


I love these low-calorie, reasonably priced snacks by Light Bites next time you're in Superdrug, you should definitely pick some of these up. They're really delicious and if you're dieting - or even if you're not - you will really enjoy these snacks. They're perfect for snacking on during the work day, having in your handbag incase you get snacky during a shopping trip or just having in the house to reach for instead of a HobNob.

  1. Omg these sound yummy! So glad the chips are gluten free, I'll definitely be picking up a few bags. I'm currently search for some snacks bags to pop in my lunch box for work and these sound perfect!
    I'm really into snacks bars at the moment, I can't believe I haven't tried those yet.
    Thanks so much for introducing me to these, I'm now very hungry!

  6. Literally every one of these snacks sounds delicious to me, especially the pesto and sundried tomato!! Surprisingly as I've got older, healthier snacks just sound and taste so much nicer than fatty ones to me, I'm a sucker for a bag of dried fruit in yoghurt haha!
