|Rise Bars - The Perfect Quick Bite|
The bars are all made in a dedicated gluten free facility. Some of the bars are vegan. The protein bars are high in protein of course with some having 3 times the protein of an egg. The bars contain many organic ingredients and have no GMO’s. Considering some of the things I’ve read about genetically modified organisms in our food supply, I smiled knowing these bars were safe.
The Rise Bar company sent a variety pack of 12 bars which included (4) Breakfast Bars, (4) Energy Bars and (4) Protein bars in the flavors listed below.
- Crunchy Macadamia Pineapple
- Crunchy Cashew Almond
- Crunchy Cranberry Apple
- Crunchy Perfect Pumpkin
- Coconut Acai
- Raspberry Pomegranate
- Blueberry Coconut
- Apricot Goji
- Almond Honey
- Crunchy Carob Chip
- Sunflower Cinnamon
- Lemon Cashew
The Almond Honey bars only have three ingredients: Almonds, Honey, and Whey Protein Isolate
Each day my 12 year old daughter and I sampled one or two different bars. We’d cut them in half so that we could each get to try them before discussing the flavor, texture etc. They were all good. My daughter preferred the breakfast bars and energy bars over the protein bars. She liked the crunchy textural elements that many of those bars provided while the protein bars had a more chewy candy consistency. I found that the high protein content in the protein bars was best at staving off hunger for a longer period of time.
They all tasted very natural unlike many of the sickeningly sweet bars that are on the market. My daughter is already asking for more of the crunch cashew almond bars and is quite upset that I ate the other half of the bar.
In short if you are looking for delicious, highly nutritious, gluten free bars that don’t contain GMO’s this is the bar for you. They’d be great to keep in your handbag for a quick snack or small meal replacement. They’re great for refueling after a workout or any other time that you need a quick pick-me-up.
