Product Review: Pure Bars – vegan/ organic

Posted on | January 8, 2009 | 1 Comment

There are  many gluten free snack bars on the market. So what makes a Pure bar so great?

These bars are raw, organic, fruit & nut bars that are cold processed and vegan.  They are also dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free and contains 1 1/2 servings of fruit, 4-5 gram of fiber and 6-7 grams of protein. These gluten free bars are flat, thin and very dense. They are also soft and chewy with a wonderful texture.  I admit, this sounded very impressive and healthy to me, but I hoped it tasted good.

I sampled two flavors- chocolate brownie and cherry cashew.  The verdict?

Chocolate Brownie:  YUM!  This bar has a subtle chocolate flavor with chunks of organic walnuts, just like a real brownie. There is a tangy sweet smell thanks to the date base, but strangely I didn’t taste much of the dates in the bar itself- just a tangy aftertaste. I was thrilled, since I am not a huge fan of dates. This bar is a winner in my book. Ingredients: organic dates, organic walnuts, organic agave nectar, organic almonds, organic cashews, organic brown rice protein, organic cocoa. Rating: 5 stars

Cherry Cashew: I was surprised by this flavor- it has the same tangy smell and taste, thanks to the date base. However, as you eat it, a mild, but fresh cherry flavor builds in your mouth. Again, the chunky nuts are add a soft crunch that is very satisfying. The only aspect I wished I could change was the presence of more cashew flavor, it definately takes a back seat to the cherry.  Ingredients: organic dates, organic cherries, organic walnuts, organic agave nectar, organic almonds, organic cashews, organic brown rice protein. Rating: 4 1/2 stars

I think these bars would be great for traveling or as a quick snack when you are out and about. Since they are softer, you don’t have to worry about them getting crushed and crumbly.

Overall, these are great gluten free snack option,and I look forward to trying their other flavors: wild blueberry, cranberry orange, chocolate chip trail mix, and apple cinnamon.

    My daughter was diagnosed with two rare diseases and we have tried a natural diet. upon trying to make meals for her she was becoming board of food and shes not big on fruit so its been hard. we went to shoprite and saw this pure bar at register. i bought it for her and to my surprise she liked it. we are on food stamps because my husband has been out of work due to car accident and back surgery. with my daughter sick its been very hard. is there any way ou could send us some coupons for this product. She really liked it and it will help her get some nutrients she needs. Thank you
