PURE Bar Review

January 12, 2010

Snack

Pure recently sent me some of their PURE bars to review. I was so excited to get the package!

Here are some important and AWESOME facts about PURE bars:

  1. USDA certified organic
  2. Vegan
  3. Raw
  4. Gluten Free
  5. Full of vitamins and minerals
  6. Each bar provides a full serving of fruit

Look:

The bars are full of whole, ground ingredients – similar to a Larabar but less ground up. When you open the package you can see the oats and whole bits of fruit.

Texture:

The bar is chewy and slightly sticky in a natural way. They don’t crumble because they are more moist than that. These bars have a great texture.

Ingredients:

The ingredients in the PURE bar are just that, pure! Here is a glimpse at the ingredient list of my favorite PURE bar flavor – Wild Blueberry from their website.

Organic Dates, Organic Wild Blueberries, (with Organic Apple Juice Concentrate and Organic Canola Oil), Organic Cashews, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Walnuts, Organic Brown Rice Protein, Organic Almonds, Organic Unsweetened Lemon Juice Concentrate, and thatโ€™s all! (unless you count the 14 essential vitamins and minerals, healthy antioxidants, and healthy Omega 3 fats in every bite).

    Mmmm, they look really good! Might have to try them since you gave them such a good review ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Liz Says:

    Both soy and gluten free, too! That’s a hard combo to come by, I should know ๐Ÿ™‚ Is the 20g of sugar too much for this kind of snack — not really sure — regardless, I’ll be trying them anyway. Great review!
