Posted on | September 15, 2008 | 2 Comments
Sorry for the delay! I have felt so frustrated this past week- my IP address was blocked from my my site host, so not only could I not update my site, I couldn’t even view it! This is the second time in two months. I am hoping it is the last or I am switching!
Yum! These hearty fruit & nut bars from Desire Tree International are very tasty and boast no refined sugar or corn syrup (sweetened with honey), no additives or preservatives. I also like the description on the back: ” if you can pronounce it, your body will recognize it.”
What I like about these bars is that they taste fresh and chewy. The fruit is big, plump, and slightly sweet. The nuts are big and pack just enough crunch to be satisfying. I was impressed with the high quality ingredients.
I sampled two flavors:
Almond-Apple-Cranberry: This flavor tasted like a “traditional” fruit and nut bar with tons of plump raisins and cranberries. The apple flavor is very mild. This bar was fairly soft with a slight crunch from the almonds and crisped rice.
Ingredients: almonds, raw honey, cranberries, dates, apples, crispid rice, gluten free oats, pineapples, raisins, sea salt “and unconditional love”- no kidding- it says that on the package!
Cashew-Almond-Pineapple: This flavor is the sweetest of the two. The pineapple flavor is much more bold and blends well with the cashews.
ingredients: almonds, cashews, dates, saw honey, pineapples, crisped rice, gluten free oats, seas salt “and conditional love”
Overall, these are high quality, portable snacks that can curb your appetite on the run.
Rating: 5 stars
PROS: fresh, high quality ingredients, portable, very tasty!
CONS: You have to buy them by the box ( 16 bars) if you buy from their website
