{review} Awesome Bars

Because you can't fake awesome.

Seriously. Their web address is: How cool is that?!

A little over a month ago, I won a contest over at Naturally Fit Sisters for a sampling of some Awesome Bars. I was beyond excited to try these out.

From their website:
Healthy + handcrafted + natural ingredients + biodegradable wrapper = Awesome Bars.
In our little granola factory, we believe that food can only be as good as its ingredients. Which means, no fake “stuff” is added to our wholesome bars. Only real ingredients from real people; because really, you can’t fake awesome.
Sounds good to me!

These arrived at my home just days before I started my new job. Perfect timing! Now, I would have some deliciously awesome snacks for my first week. :D

I was given 1 of each their 5 flavors to try - Blueberry Almond, Cherry Almond, Coconut Pecan, Cranberry Trail Mix, and Salty Peanut.

All were so delicious! All had a dark chocolate coating on one side. *heaven* The flavors all mixed really well. I don't normally like anything cherry, but I even enjoyed the Cherry Almond. There was not one bar that I had to struggle through eating. No, I had to forcibly pace myself, so I wouldn't sound/look like a pig.

They were that good.

I also loved that each bar was packaged in a biodegradable wrapper. I'm not always very good about it, but I try to do my part. The idea of biodegradable packaging made me smile. But, unfortunately, it was also my biggest complaint. If you can call it a complaint.

The packaging is very noisy. 

I definitely would not recommend slipping these into your purse to sneak a snack in during church or a meeting or anywhere quiet. I sometimes felt awkwardly noisy while trying to nibble on these at my desk.

Despite that, if you're looking for a yummy healthy snack, you can't go wrong with these granola bars. They are awesome. 'Nuff said.

I received these bars for winning a giveaway. I was in no way compensated for writing this review. All thoughts/opinions are my own. Pictures were swiped from the Awesome Bars website.

  1. I've never heard of these bars, but they really do sound awesome. :) Love that they have biodegradable wrappers, too, even if they are noisy!

  2. I have noticed that about biodegradable packaging, but even so, I think it's great! Just can't "sneak" those snacks.

    1. Awesome Bars commented on my link to this post on Facebook with this: We say that you are announcing that you are being green every time you rip into an an Awesome Bar and crinkle the package.

      Pretty awesome. :D
