I first discovered Nature’s Bakery at the 2nd Annual Self UpnOut event in downtown Manhattan. After exercising for almost four hours, I took my first bite into their Double Chocolate Brownie and was instantly hooked. Rarely has there been a bite of chocolate that was so tempting and satisfying for my “a little something sweet” craving post-workout. After that first taste of such a dense, chocolately brownie bar, I was on the lookout for Nature’s Bakery at my local Stop n’ Shop. I was pleased to see that their products were on sale on a fairly regular basis, so I purchased a couple dozen brownie bars.
It was not long after that I had the opportunity to try all of their Fig and Brownie bars. There is certainly a bar for everyone: four types of gluten-free Fig Bars, four brownie flavors, and eight Fig Bars, in addition to recently launched bars.
Brownie Bar flavors include Chocolate, Raspberry, Blueberry, and Mint. My favorite is the Raspberry Double Chocolate. Each brownie is certified non-GMO, dairy-free, cholesterol free, soy-free, and Kosher. That touch of sweetness is from the dates, and each serving contains 8 grams of whole grains.
The gluten-free fig bars are: Pomegranate, Fig, Raspberry, and Blueberry. My favorite was the Blueberry. Each gluten-free bar is made with ancient grains. Ancient grains are grains that are largely unchanged over the last several hundred years, according to the Whole Grains Council. My friends who are gluten-intolerant loved these bars! Each chewy square was such a delight, they are so hard to put down!
The eight Fig Bar flavors include: Raspberry, Blueberry, Apple-Cinnamon, Fig, Peach-Apricot, Lemon, Strawberry and Mango. My favorite was the lemon! These bars are so perfect as a snack for school, an after school snack, and as a treat during work paired with your favorite cuppa tea or coffee. I will be packing these in my daughter’s lunchbox for camp and school!
