Review: Rise Bar Blueberry Coconut Energy Bar

Category: , , , , / 4/09/2012
Energy bars have become readily available over the past few years. Stores such as Whole Foods boast impressive selections that often occupy an entire aisle. With so many choices, who has time to read all the labels? Fortunately, Rise Bars print "vegan" right on the front and have created a product that's practically allergy-free. Read on for my review of their Blueberry Coconut Energy+ Bar.

Pros:
  • Simple, organic ingredients
  • Vegan
  • No gluten, GMOS, dairy, soy, or peanuts
  • Stable source of energy
  • Sweet, coconutty, and delicious
Cons:
  • May need to order online
Summary:
This Rise Energy+ Bar packs a real punch. It's sweet and delicious yet contains some fantastic, organic ingredients. You can see for yourself, as pieces of berries, amaranth, and coconut are visible in the dark blue bar. The taste is great, but the appearance may seem a little unusual for someone new to natural energy bars. Also, those looking for a low-sugar bar should note that this variety contains conventional sugar alternatives such as tapioca syrup, brown rice syrup and a bit of evaoparte can juice (apparently from dried blueberries). Currently available for about $1.86 each via Amazon.com's Subscribe and Save program, these bars are competitively priced considering the quality of the ingredients. I highly recommend these tasty bars for those looking for vegan, organic, or allergy-free food on the go.
