If visions of Charlton Heston screaming “It’s people!” pops into your mind any time you see the word “Soylent,” you need not worry about Soylent Squared Snack Bars. While these snack bars aren’t made of people, they are good for people.
Soylent Squared are the first 100 calorie snack bars that give you what you need when you need it. The bars are packed with 5 grams of protein—from plants—as well as 36 essential nutrients, including 26 vitamins and minerals, nine amino acids, and two essential fatty acids (both omega-3 and omega-6). The bars also provide probiotics to help promote digestive health. Probiotics also help to boost your immune system, 70 per cent of which is located in your gut, making keeping your digestive system healthy extremely important.
Unlike other “nutrition” bars, Soylent Squared doesn’t rely on high doses or sugar, nor does it use less sustainable animal protein. Just one or two of these packs makes the perfect snack, or you can round out a whole meal with three or four. You can pick from three different flavours: Chocolate Brownie, Salted Caramel, or Citrus Berry. The bars come in packs of 30 squares.
Soylent markets its products direct to consumer, so you’ll have to go to their site to pick up the bars, though they do have plans to expand into Amazon soon.
Shelbys Healthy Snacks are Empowering Indulgence
Shelbys reports that 48 per cent of all Australians have no interest in sharing their snacks. It’s really not so surprising, although there are bound to be negative health effects for that half of the population (myself included) who tends to consume the entire packet of their favourite treat.
For those who can’t help themselves, Shelbys Healthy Hedonism is a new snack brand empowering indulgence without the insecurity.
The Shelbys’ range of Dipped & Dusted Almonds and bars are all-natural, low GI, gluten-free and refined sugar-free – so a healthy alternative for when snacking feels like the appropriate course of action.
Shelby’s Dipped & Dusted almonds range comes in four flavours:
- Matcha & yoghurt
- Raspberry dark chocolate
- Espresso dark chocolate
- Cinnamon & yoghurt
The bars range comes in six different flavours:
- Peanut butter, coconut, lemon slice
- Peanut butter, coconut & dark chocolate
- Pistachio, cranberry & Himalayan salt
- Almond, turmeric, coconut & yoghurt
- Almond, matcha, cranberry & dark chocolate
- Cashew, blueberry & coconut
Shelby’s also found that 62 per cent of survey respondents reported they are most likely to snack on the couch, after dinner. So now it’s possible to crack open some snacks while binging TV at night and not feel so bad about it in the morning.

Don’t Go to the Lobby, Order Your Snacks with the Hoyts App
It used to be that before the movie started in the theatre, a little animation would play that prompted you with the jingle, “Let’s all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat.” Of course, that meant running the risk of missing the previews and potentially the first part of the movie, depending on how long the lines were or how slow that pimply faced teenager behind the counter moved.
Hoyts has come up with an app that lets you order snacks before you even get to the theatre, or from your seat. Hoyts CEO Damian Keogh described the reasoning behind creating the app: “Guests are continually at the heart of our business strategy and the Hoyts app with food and drinks enabled, will provide convenience and a seamless in-cinema experience like no other.”
You can download the HOYTS app from Apple and Google Play. With the app, you can order food and drink either with your ticket purchase or separately. The app also lets you choose other features offered in HOYTS theatres, as well as track what movies are playing near you.
You’ll still have to get up to go get your treats—they aren’t offering in-seat delivery yet—but at least you won’t have to wait in line.
Mad Mex Introduces Pineapple to Burritos
In a move that is set to get tongues wagging (at least on a bunch of Tinder dates lost for proper conversation), Mad Mex has today announced its latest burrito acoutrement, and its one that already divides the nation.
The humble pineapple has a long and storied history. From its place as the European symbol of hospitality, (fact: rich folks used to be able to rent one for an evening to show off their immense wealth) to the fact that it is, objectively, the prince of fruits (both in terms of both handsomeness and taste), the ananas is an A-list ingredient.
Known for its balanced acidity, however, has seen its occasional invite to the savoury dish party to be a contentious one. And while millennials love to debate whether or not it belongs on that so hallowed Australian culinary delight: the Hawaiian pizza, Mexican chain Mad Mex has come to the party and announced that the delicious condiment will now be available on its famous burritos.
That’s right: you can now get a little pineapple love rolled into your favourite Mexican kebab.
Whilst not a traditional ingredient in burritos, Mexico is a leading producer of the pineapple globally, and it’s a key ingredient in many traditional Mexican recipes.
“Whilst some will call it sacrilege, we know there are a LOT of pineapple fans out there – some of them living in secret – and they’ve been waiting a long time for this day to come,” says Mad Mex Founder and CEO Clovis Young.
“We want to empower Aussie pineapple lovers to indulge their passion with a fun twist on traditional burritos! We’re excited to see what Australia decides: do they love it or hate it?! Let’s find out. And who knows, if the new burrito is a hit, this might not be the last we see of it on the menu…”
Diners are encouraged to cast their vote on how they think the ingredient plays, with entrants going into the draw to win a AUD$2,000 travel voucher for a tropical holiday worthy of a boozy bevvo served in the hollowed-out yellow fruit.
