Review: Yawp! Nutrition Bars

I love to eat healthy snacks, and this is especially important when I'm on the go. I often end up driving and in need of a pre- or post-dance class snack. Trail mix is a fun and relatively inexpensive treat, but it is difficult and often messy to eat in the car, not to mention the potential hazards. Bars are a more convenient option, and Yawp! created one with only a few simple and mostly organic ingredients that's more fun than eating homemade trail mix.

  • Just under 200 calories
  • Relatively high in protein
  • Easy to eat on the go
  • Available in two flavors
  • Fun name and packaging
  • Made with organic ingredients
  • May be hard to find locally
My samples arrived in this festive box
Yawp! comes in two flavors, Naked and Mocha. They have the same base of organic almonds, dates, pepitas, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds. While the dates provide a bit of moisture, the texture is pretty crunchy, so I recommend eating with some water. The Naked was flavored with cinnamon and salt, which added a nice balance to the flavor. The Mocha is another tasty option, especially if you like cocoa/coffee blends. I love how they come in fun packaging and have such a creative name. I was also happy to see that they are almost entirely organic and grain-free, making them an excellent food to eat for special diets such as gluten-free, soy-free, vegan, and paleo. They are slightly sweetened with dates, not added sugars. The price is higher than some bars, but the quality of the ingredients is quite high. They are available online with bigger discounts for bulk purchases, but there is also some retail availability, especially in the North Carolina area. If you're looking for a healthy snack that is convenient for travel, Yawp! is a great option.
