Granola Gourmet Ultimate Energy Bars {Review & Giveaway}


Featured Sponsor

  
On the go, after a workout or for a quick and easy meal, I  LOVE the on the go variety. I was recently introduced to a 100% Natural energy bar by Granola Gourmet.

About Granola Gourmet

Founded by Jeff Cohen (a diabetic) and his family. Granola Gourmet Energy Bars are made with 100% natural and wholesome ingredients.  Frustrated by a lack of snacks that did not cause a blood sugar spike*, but that also tasted good Granola Gourmet was born. Granola Gourmet uses ingredients that are low or very low on the Glycemic Index*, because of this Granola Gourmet Energy Bars convert to sugar more slowly. 

Granola Gourmet's 100% Natural Ultimate Energy Bars are handmade in California and individually wrapped. These Kosher Vegan Energy Bars are wheat and dairy free. They are also very low in sodium (20-35mg) and contain 530-590mg of Omega-3's. All of this packed into a complete (approx.) 150 calorie energy bar. Amazing.
 
So all that goodness, what flavors are available? 

Ultimate Energy Bars are available in four flavors: Ultimate Berry, Ultimate Fudge Brownie, Ultimate Cran-Orange and Ultimate Mocha Fudge.

ace and friends thoughts on flavor: 

As much as I can appreciate a energy bar, I have to admit, I am always concerned about the taste. How can that much goodness also have a delicious flavor. I've now had an opportunity to sample Ultimate Fudge Brownie and Ultimate Mocha Fudge (do you see a pattern here?). I am a total girl and LOVE my chocolate, so of course, I had to try those first. I absolutely enjoyed the Granola Gourmet Ultimate Mocha Fudge. The bar was just the right amount of chewy and filled with tasty flavorful ingredients. Not too sweet, but just enough to satisfy my chocolate craving. Yum. I also liked that the Granola Gourmet Ultimate Energy Bars contained 5g of protein as well as sunflower and flax seed. Final Thoughts: Perfect for on the go and a great snack to tide you over to your next meal.
