Hi everyone!! Over the past 2 weeks I was lucky enough to taste test Nature’s Path newly revamped line of organic granola bars. This post is dedicated to a full review of each bar, plus something fun at the end. Enjoy!!
This was the first of the bars that I reached for. Imagine that! It was very coconutty, which was a huge plus, but I would’ve liked to see a bit more dark chocolate spread throughout. I give this a 4/5.
Maple + pecan = one of my favourite flavour combos. And this bar didn’t disappoint! There were lots of pecan chunks and a nice, strong maple flavour. An icing drizzle sealed the deal. The Mmmaple Pecan is one of the 2 new flavours that include flax plus which is an excellent source of Omega-3’s. 5/5
I liked the sunny hemp bar best of all. It seemed thicker than the others and was really dense and chewy, yet crispy like a rice crispy treat. This bar in particular had tons of fruit and oats packed into it. A definite 5/5!
This little gem tasted naughty in the best of ways! LOL! Full of berries with a generous yogurt drizzle. If you want something good for you that tastes like a treat from DQ, this is your bar. This is also the second bar that contains the flax plus. I personally found it a tad too sweet so for that reason only I give this one a 4/5.
She thoroughly enjoyed both. When I asked her how they were all she could manage was Mmmmmm….awesome!!! HA!
Although I liked this bar, it was my least favourite of the lot. I found the apricot to be a bit on the strong side and the icing overly sweet. The 2 seemed to clash rather then meld together for me. I must say though….LOTS of apricots!! 3/5
These new bars are packaged in boxes which use 36% less cardboard which saves 472000 gallons of water and 46 tons of waste yearly. Pretty cool stuff!
Overall, all the bars were chalk full of flavour and were loaded with fruit and/or nuts and seeds. They’re on the sweet side, which is just fine with me, but if you aren’t a sweet type of person, you may find them a bit overwhelming. At 130-150 calories per bar, they were a decent size and worked perfect for a morning snack or afternoon pick me up. At my grocery store a box of these bars runs about $4.50. Definitely more expensive than what I would normally spend, so they wouldn’t be a staple in my pantry, but I would buy them say, once a month.
I hope this review has been helpful and that you’ll give these bars a try. With 8 different varieties to choose from, I guarantee you’ll find a fave!
