Review: Pure Bars

I was super excited this week to try Veronica Bosgraaf’s Pure Bars after receiving a sample package in the mail.  I’ve been eyeing these bars for a while since they boast superb nutritional stats.  See for yourself:

These organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free bars are made from dried fruit, nuts, rice protein, and agave nectar.  I love that the ingredient list is super short and that I know what everything on that list actually is.  They’re also lower in sugar and higher in protein than many dried fruit and nut bars out there.  With a lot of competing products like these, I honestly think Pure Bars are amongst the best in gluten-free, vegan, and raw nutrition bars.  This is simple, clean nutrition at its finest.  And to think I haven’t even mentioned how they taste!

Pure bars are delicious!  Like most raw foods, the flavors are rich, complex, and totally satisfying.  They come in these six flavors:

  • Cranberry Orange
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Wild Blueberry
  • Trail Mix
  • Cherry Cashew
  • Chocolate Brownie

My ultimate favorite is Cranberry Orange- with a cup of hot coffee and a slices of a fresh apple, this bar tasted like Christmas morning.  I have no other way to describe the deliciousness.  The runner up flavors?  Apple Cinnamon, Trail Mix, and Wild Blueberry.  I dare say they taste better than apple pie and blueberry muffins.  But who am I kidding, they’re all good!

Kudos to Veronica for making such wholesome and delicious food that are easily portable and dependably nutritious.

*UPDATE!:  The Vegan Backpacker is now offering an epic giveaway of PURE Bars.  What could be better?  Here’s the link if you are interested in free delicious things.
