Snacks & Bars
We have carefully evaluated what outdoors enthusiasts typically need from snack/energy products and looked at what is currently available. Our conclusion is that it is the traditional products such as flapjack bars and trail mix which offer the best mix of nutrients and energy, for walkers and backpackers at least.
Flapjack has lots of oats, which release energy slowly over a long period, which is generally what is needed.
Trail mix contains a selection of dried fruits and nuts, which give high levels of energy for the weight, as well as a good mix of nutrients.
We have created our own Explorer Trail Mix: a superb luxury mix of nuts and dried fruit specially made to our own unique recipe to guarantee interesting and refreshing flavours. Snacking on this mix is a great way to boost energy and nutrients during the day. You get 575kcal of energy in each bag (gross weight 131g).
We currently stock flapjacks from Classic Cakes and Blackfriars Bakery. Classic Cakes are based in Daventry; we've found they produce an excellent range of flapjacks, with good oaty flavour, great texture, and lots of calories for the weight carried.
Blackfriars Bakery from Leicester boast that they "bake a wicked flapjack" and from our tasting we would certainly agree: great oaty flavour, moist and with a really nice texture, they are also generously sized for outdoors appetites!
