I'm the one in the family who presses for healthier foods. I have to admit though that granola and trailmix is not my favorite item. When I do get trail mix, I'm ashamed to say that I pick out the pieces I like and leave the rest for my husband. To me, wholesome bars are usually tasteless, dry, and crumbly.
Last week I was offered some Pure Bars to review, and I was a little worried about what I would say because I know my preferences and I want to be honest.
Not to worry!!
Pure Bars are moist and sweet. They have the consistency of a good brownie. Everything in it is fresh and fresh-tasting. My first bite of the ChocoChip Trailmix Bar was a surprising burst of flavors. Under the name of the bar, it says, "Like a friendly hello you can eat." I can honestly say that it was a delicious wake up to my taste buds. This particular bar is made of dates, agave nectar, apples, raisins, cashews, almonds, walnuts, rice protein, and sea salt -- all ingredients are organic.
The Cranberry Orange Pure Bar is mild, sweet but not an overwhelming flavor.
We both found the Cherry Cashew Pure Bar especially nice.
All of these bars are organic, and totally raw. They each have 400 mg of Omega 3, healthy antioxidants, are low in sodium and are vegan.
Here's what they DON'T contain:
NO refined sugars
NO gluten or soy
NO artificial nothin' (yes, it's really on their package)
So if you're looking for a good and healthy snack, I would suggest giving Pure Bars a try.
