Bara Brith and Parkin, our worst kept secret.

Ey up, how's it going? We've been excited about these two flavours since we first started mixing things together in Christian's kitchen a year ago. They just took a little longer to perfect than Cherry Bakewell and Choc Kendal Mint Cake, and we haven't done a great job of keeping them a secret.

Bara Brith and Parkin bring us up to four all-natural energy bars that celebrate our national parks - not a double choc chip mega fudge brownie flavour in sight. Same plastic-free, fully compostable packaging. Same dependable, portable, no refined sugar base. Still vegan and still made here in the UK.

Don't waste your energy.

Bara Brith, in celebration of Snowdonia

Based on the rich fruity tea bread of Wales - fruity, tangy, get in my face delicious. Tastes like orange and tea.

Never tried Bara Brith? You haven’t lived. A Welsh delicacy, literally meaning ‘speckled bread’ with dried fruit and orange peel soaked in tea before baking.

This titan of treats is more Welsh than Tom Jones & daffodils. It was in Snowdonia that we first tried Bara Brith, so this one goes out to days on Tryfan, Crib Goch and Cadair Idris.

Parkin, in celebration of the Yorkshire Dales

Treacly, gingery and fiery all at once. Don't mess with Yorkshire.

Scoffed down by hungry walkers, riders and climbers across God’s own county, from Malham coves to Tan Hill Inn, the Wolds to Ribblehead.

A sticky gingerbready cakey type thing made of oatmeal and treacle with a hint of spice too, it’s outdoor refuelling at its most delicious, a worthy inspiration behind our Parkin flavoured bar.

So the sun sets at around 4pm now. But that doesn't stop a fresh-air-head getting their fix, does it? Charge up your lights, dig out your long johns and keep us posted on what you get up to in the dark.

Let's take this outside.
