So it’s pretty obvious here at Bliss that I’m a carb loving gal… let’s just take a gander at some of my recent post shall we?
–Blueberry Muffin Bread
–Chewy Oat Bars
–English Muffin Bread
… you get the point! Now, I could try and use the excuse that I run a lot and therefore need to eat a crazy amount of carbs to fuel… but let’s face the truth-I just LOVE ’em!
Seeing as how much I love me some carbs, it’s a pretty safe bet to guess that I love all types of granola/snack bars as well! There are so many great companies out there committed to producing wholesome, healthy and delicious snack bars-but be aware! There are a lot of sketching companies too, trying to convince you that their ‘snack bar’ is a healthy little treat but is sometimes no better than a candy bar 🙁
Have no fear! The Blissful Baker is here to help you wade through the huge ocean of snack bars and determine which ones hold up to their health food claims!
One of the most popular snack companies is the Clif Bar Company. People people people! Here is a company you can love and trust! Not only do they create a bunch of different healthy snack bars, but they also encourage an all around healthy lifestyle-by supporting many different sporting activities-from marathons to snowboarding. They also believe in connecting with the world their products are grown in by: sourcing organic ingredients and supporting organic agriculture, engaging the people who grow, make, package, transport and eat their food and encouraging hands-on volunteer service. It makes me so happy when I love a product AND their company! I feel so much better buying their products when I know that the company does something good with the profits for our entire world!
Clif Bar was kind enough to let me sample and review for you wonderful readers their newest bar creation- Luna Fiber Bars. They come in three flavors: Chocolate Raspberry (so dessert-like you’d swear you’re eating a candy bar!), Vanilla Blueberry (tastes like something my grandma would make for Sunday church brunch!) and Peanut Butter Strawberry (a great remake on the classic combo that I am admittedly obsessed with!)
The Clif Bar Company sells many different kinds of bars! They make bars for a variety of needs, tastes, textures and people! I’m sure you’ll find one that suits your nutritional and taste-bud desires! (And no-I was not paid in any way to say that or anything else on this post…that last bit sounded a tad ‘infomercial-ly’ 😛 ) One of my favorites (before trying the new Luna Fiber) was the Original Clif Bar-Crunchy Peanut Butter… anyone surprised my favorite was a peanut butter variety? Yeah-didn’t think so…
