Based on the description of these bars, you may have the same first impression I did. “Woo hoo! Another healthy snack bar that looks delicious but falls short (way short) in the flavor department.” Well, you wouldn’t be wrong about them being healthy (it’s raw and vegan, for crying out loud!), but these actually taste like CANDY BARS!
Each bar is covered in a layer of smooth, dark Agostoni Chocolate that adds richness and decadence to every bite.
The Nutty Nougat Bar reminded me of Easter candies that I had as a kid. The nougat filling inside of these bars did actually taste like nougat! This variety is loaded with cashews, almonds, and coconut, making this a perfect post workout or mid afternoon snack! It is sweetened with raw blue agave and covered in the dark chocolate that I mentioned before. Yum!
The Peanut Butter & Coconut Bar is one of my favorites. Whenever you combine peanut butter, coconut and dark chocolate, you have a winner in my book! It’s absolutely a cure for anybody’s sweet tooth but also provides protein and healthy fats to carry you through to the next meal. Delicioso!
The Mint Chocolate Bar was a surprise! Almonds, brown rice crisps, coconut oil, and raw blue agave combine to make the filling of this bar, and organic mint oil sends it over the top! This is a grown up version of a York Peppermint Patty (I’m sure kids would love it, too!). Mint and dark chocolate is just another one of those “can’t fail” combinations. This bar is refreshing and fabulous!
Growing up, my Dad’s favorite cake was German Chocolate. He would ask for it every year for his birthday. Not surprisingly, the German Chocolate Bar reminded me of him and his birthday cakes. Pecans, almonds, coconuts, brown rice crisps, cacao powder, and coconut oil combine to make the signature sweet and coconutty flavor. His birthday would be coming up pretty soon… I may order a case of these for that day to celebrate his memory. He would have loved these bars!
The Coconut Bar is pure, simple and delicious. It’s filling is made of sweet shredded coconut that is covered in a generous layer of dark chocolate. Again, this is a healthy yet fabulous version of a Mounds Bar. I give this one an A+!
The Double Chocolate Bar is perfect for Chocoholics. The rich filling is made with raw dates and cacao powder that’s covered in wonderful dark chocolate. You’d never guess this bar was good for you!
