Really appreciated the order and especially the customer service! Next time I’d love to limit the flavours to the peanut butter bar and hazelnut if possible. Thanks 🙏🏼
Unfortunately I wasn't a big fan of the taste or texture of these bars. I'm sure they'd be a great choice for lots of people but not me. The only one I could actually finish was the lemon shortbread, but it wouldn't be an eat again. They were beautifully presented though and the communication from Chief was excellent. Overall they were worth a try and it was good to have the option of a sample box 🙂
I really love the collagen bars , they are my mid morning snack with my coffee. Great thing is I know they are healthy as well as delicious 😋
Delicious and fills me up.
My only issues are the price and the fact that it’s made of 100% imported ingredients.
Hi Tom, thanks so much for your feedback! These are two things we care about two and they are related, so here's some more info.
On price, we use nuts instead of dried fruit or artificial ingredients which has a big impact on the end price of the product. To give a sense of just how much the difference is, nuts (which make up most of the bars) retail at >$23/kg, dried fruit at $3/kg and fake stuff at <$0.50/kg. The problem with dried fruit based bars is they’re usually over 30% sugar but the ones to really worry about are the $3 bars made from a chemical soup of artificial thickeners, fillers, sweeteners, vegetable oils, syrups and sugar alcohols - all of which is damaging to your health and despite the claims on pack these types of bars are definitely not health foods. When it comes to health, we think value is more important than price, but you can still grab our collagen bars for $3.75 each on subscription.
As far as Australian ingredients goes, we want to use sustainably grown nuts from local sources where we can but consistency of supply and cost is an issue we're working on and we need more volume to solve it. When it comes to collagen, there is no Australian made collagen yet (which is crazy) but we're working with some local partners to change this.
Everything is of course made in Australia and we are an Australian owned business.
I loved the shortbread-like texture of these bars. The little bits of crunch add great diversity in texture and there’s no space food stick texture. No protein aftertaste. Have already bought more. I love the lemon shortbread most! Just wish there’d be sales! 100% recommend.
