The Best Bar Ever
A lovely friend recently contacted me asking if I would be interested in trying a protein bar from her friend’s company. Yes, please!! I absolutely love finding new, healthy, and tasty protein bars to add to my diet! I will tell you one thing about this company…they are confident!! With a name like “The Best Bar Ever” it must be good!
After taking a look at the nutritional stats, I was already intrigued. This bar is made from real food like mixed nuts, cherries & cranberries, honey & molasses, whole oats. They are nutritionally balanced with a blend of healthy fats, quality carbs, and 15 grams of premium protein. Gluten free too!

When I received the bars, there was a note telling me to refrigerate them. At first I though that was odd, but it makes perfect sense! These bars are made fresh weekly and aren’t loaded with unhealthy preservatives and chemicals just to give them a long shelf life. Think about it….most bars can sit on the shelves for months, or even years!!! Why? Because they are packed full of preservatives!
As soon as I unwrapped this bar, I could smell all the awesomeness! I really noticed the honey and cranberry scents. The texture was soft and chewy which I love! It actually kind of reminded me of fruit cake… a high quality, delicious fruit cake! It was sweet, fruity, nutty, and very hearty. Big pieces of nuts and fruit gave it a great texture.
It kept me full for a long time too, with no sugar crash. A lot of bars out there taste amazing because they are packed full of sugar…you would probably be better off eating a candy bar! This big bar only contains 11 grams of sugar which comes from natural ingredients.
Of course I wanted to get a little creative with this tasty creation…
I broke the bar into tiny pieces and baked them at 150 for about 6 minutes. Teeny Tiny Cookies!
Baking the bar gave it a slight crunch on the outside, but stayed soft and chewy inside. Great eaten alone or mixed in some greek yogurt!
I definitely give this bar two thumbs up! It tastes great, meets my “healthy” standards, and can be transformed into a super fun snack! These bars are appearing in some stores, but your best bet it to buy them directly from their website. I will say they are a little pricey at $20.94 for six bars, but ya get what ya pay for. Plus, these bars are bigger than your average bar and half of one makes a great snack!
