The Primal Kitchen Paleo Bar Review

The Primal Kitchen kindly sent me some samples of their new snack bars, they are the premier Paleo bar here in the UK. From trying their grain free, wheat free, dairy free delights I am certain they will soon be worldwide! Eating Paleo on the go in the UK can be tough, there are not too many options that provide high nutrition, great taste and are all natural.

The Primal Kitchen philosophy

Firstly I asked the amazing team at The Primal Kitchen why they believe in Paleo in the UK. Suzie Walker, Founder & Nutritionist said:

“As a Nutritionist, clients come to me for a range of reasons, notably weight loss, PCOS and digestive disorders. Through my own clients it was how I discovered the true benefits of a Paleo lifestyle, seeing the transformations before my eyes.  By the time our daughter was born I was pretty much converted to Paleo. It just made sense, even feeding a 6 month old, why wean them on grains.  I ignored all the standard weaning guidelines and decided to wean our daughter the Paleo way – no baby rice in sight!.  Paleo to me is really eating clean, getting to know your food labels, making the right decisions and most importantly enjoying it. “ 

I couldn’t agree more and honestly couldn’t have put it better myself. I’m seeing more and more development and uptake of people “going” Paleo in the UK. The Primal Kitchen adds fuel to the much-needed fire, shaking up the snack industry and offering better choices.

Being a huge Macadamia nut fan I was extremely excited to try the Coconut & Macadamia Paleo bar first. It was everything I thought it would be, chewy, chunky and full of flavour. Unlike other gluten free bars available it was incredibly filling.

The Primal Kitchen Almond & Cashew Paleo Bar overall looked the most appealing, it was delicious as I had expected, and I certainly see it being an easy snack for anyone, Paleo or not to grab and enjoy.

Last but by no means least, onto the Brazil Nut and Cherry option. Undecidedly I wasn’t sure these flavours would go together however colour me wrong! What a fantastic combination, the strength of the Brazils against the sweetness of cherry. I wouldn’t have thought of it myself but I’m happy to say I’m sold!

– Cherries contain melatonin, which aides sleep. We all know that rest and recovery will help improve the quality of exercise. (Just another great point about these Paleo bars)

Why chose these Paleo snack bars?

Pretty simple! 

With 10 years in the food industry prior to Nutrition, Suzie Walker came to realise that there is an awful lot of rubbish out there. Snacks that simply don’t cut the mustard!! The bars were originally made at home for clients, until one day after some great feedback, Suzie decided to take this project further and launch The Primal Kitchen.

Many snack options have misleading labelling, poor ingredient statements and lack quality ingredients.

“Ingredients will always be paramount to me.  I don’t want to put anything in the bars that I or you wouldn’t use at home. All the bars have 5 or less ingredients and they are not covered in vegetable oil like other well know products.”

~ Suzie Walker, Founder & Nutritionist.

  1. These looks yummy, if not a little expensive. The article refers to other popular brands being coated in oil? Do you know which ones? I’m a big fan of nakd but have noticed these can sometimes be quite oily x


    1. Hi Blake!
      Yes, Nakd bars have a small bit of vegetable oil, used as a processing aid, so doesn’t have to be declared on the ingredients list. 🙂


    2. Hi Lucy,
      Sorry for the reply. Some bars like Nakd, I believe, use a small amount of oil in their production. As a by product of using dates and nuts natural oils will secrete and could make some Paleo snack bars seem oily.


    1. Bounce are not all Paleo friendly, best to check the ingredients. These bars are 100% Paleo! Plus they are cheaper than Bounce 🙂


  2. I’ve eaten many of there bars! Usually post-training and also on expedition where I wanted an energy bar that would give me energy and nutrition and was not a typical chocolate bar providing a sugar spike. Love them…give them a try, if you like nuts and fruit they will do the job nicely.


    1. Hi Louise,
      Great to hear you’re a fan too 🙂
