It’s the age-old problem for snack bar lovers. How can you enjoy these treats without feeling guilty about the ingredients? Well, now it’s possible thanks to Super Pop. This is a sumptuous snack bar, creamy, crispy and nutritious. Think of it as a healthy cookie that really tastes good.

The brainchild of health-conscious mother Melissa Wessely, the Super Pop snack bars proves tasty and healthy can get along. Melissa started this in her kitchen but has since become a business. Built on the motto of “snack powerfully”, Super Pop Snacks are butter bars with popped quinoa and 100% free from dairy, gluten, and soy.

Other ingredients include soy/dairy free chocolate, dried blueberries, organic coconut oil, organic pea protein, organic honey, flax meal and organic brown rice crisps. Popped quinoa is the key ingredient as it is a complete protein source and allows Super Pop to have less sugar than apples.

These snack bars are also egg free and have no preservatives and artificial sugars. Four flavors are currently available, almond chocolate, almond blueberry, peanut butter honey and peanut butter chocolate.  The tastes vary but during preparation, the nut butter always comes first. In addition, Super Pop Snack Bars contain only healthy fats and plant-based protein.

Unlike other so-called sugar-free bars, Super Pop is free of sugar alcohols such as erythritol, prebiotic fiber or tapioca fiber. These sugar alcohols lead to a spike in blood sugar levels which can be dangerous. Instead, Super Pop Snack Bars use only organic honey which is delicious and nutritious.

Super Pop Snack Bars are handmade and prepared in batches to ensure quality control. Unlike other snack bars, they are not subject to intensive processing. Combined with its healthy ingredients and you’ve got the ideal protein bar.
