I love eating freshly made fruit bars and Pure Bar comes pretty close to making it right in your own kitchen. Fruit bars that are made with all-natural ingredients and in the case of Pure Bar – organic ingredients – are more natural to the taste and a lot more wholesome. But Pure Bar is more than just a fruit bar-making company. The company is dedicated in making snack bars that contain only the purest ingredients and the freshest around. In fact, their bars are so “fresh” that they call them “Raw” meaning ingredients that aren’t cooked above 118 degrees. But why make them “raw”? Because raw foods aren’t overcooked thus maintaining their nutritional value. Thus Pure Bar sets themselves apart from other fruit and snack bars.
What I liked most about Pure Bar snack bars is that their ingredients are very simple yet pack a whole lot of nutrition and flavor. They’re also lightly sweetened with organic agave nectar although the agave nectar is almost unncessary because it’s sweet enough. Pure Bar’s snack bars are almost like eating a handful of fruits and nuts except in a bar form and definitely much easier to carry around. They’re also certified organic by the USDA so you know that you’re eating food that haven’t been touched by toxic pesticides so they’re better for your health and for the planet. Another great thing about Pure Bar snack bars is that they are gluten-free so they’re a good choice for gluten and wheat-intolerant folks. Their bars are also minimally processed and contain no dairy products so vegans can enjoy them as well.
Currently, Pure Bar fruit bars come in 6 different flavors – Chocolate Brownie, Wild Blueberry, Cherry Cashew, Apple Cinnamon, Cranberry Orange, and Trail Mix. My favorite is, can-you-guess, Chocolate Brownie because it tastes extraordinarily like a chocolate brownie except with an extra kick to it since it contains organic cashews, walnuts, and almonds so it’s also quite filling. You can find Pure Bars in most natural food stores and you can even order them online: http://shop.thepurebar.com
Pure Bar was developed by a mom who wanted to create something delicious and satisfying for her vegetarian daughter. And like its name entails – pure ingredients and pure deliciousness are packed into each bar. As a family-owned and operated business, Pure Bar is able to maintain the integrity of their ingredients and their mission is simple – providing natural and wholesome snacks for everyone. By using organic ingredients in their bars, they are already contributing to the sustainability of our planet but they also go one step further in helping the world by teaming up with the Celiac Disease Foundation and planting one tree for each 3 bars that are sold. A company that helps people and the environment – how can they go wrong with that?
