Review & giveaway: Pure Bar

September 24, 2010

Happy Friday, everyone! Despite the death of my camera last night, I’m looking forward to the weekend. Matt and I are going to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival tomorrow afternoon (it’s wine and chocolate weekend!), and then the Plaza Art Fair in the evening. Do you have anything fun planned?

I’ve got a delicious snack to share with you today. Awhile back, I was delighted to receive a box of Pure Bars from Veronica Bosgraaf, their creator. When Veronica’s daughter decided to become vegetarian at age six, she wanted to provide her with a healthy, wholesome snack with no refined sugars, no chemicals, and no genetically modified ingredients. Instead, Pure Bars are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fats—perfect for kids and grown-ups alike!

I’d seen Pure Bars before at Whole Foods and in my gym’s café, but I’d never tried them. I was thrilled to find that Veronica sent me a dozen bars—two of each flavor!

The six varieties of Pure Bar are Chocolate Brownie, Cherry Cashew, Cranberry Orange, Apple Cinnamon, Wild Blueberry, and Trail Mix.

So what’s so great about Pure Bars? Not only are they vegan, gluten-free, high-raw, AND certified organic, but hello! They’re scrumptious! Every one of them is nutty, chewy, and naturally sweetened with dates and agave.

I liked that the Cherry Cashew bar contained 7 grams of brown rice protein.

I gave the Cranberry Orange bars to Matt, since I’m anti-orange, and he said they were citrusy and just-sweet-enough.

The fruity Wild Blueberry bar paired beautifully with an afternoon cup of raspberry earl tea.

My favorite, though, has to be the Apple Cinnamon bar. They certainly don’t skimp on the fruit—just look at all those apple chunks! Pure Bars have definitely earned a spot in my snack pantry.

Oh yes, it’s already time for…
ALMOST VEGAN GIVEAWAY #7
