Bora Bora Bar Review

I Say "Mmm Mmm" to the Bora Bora Bar

I just came upon a new energy bar called the Bora Bora Bar. Made by a company called Wellements, these bars contain all organic ingredients. They are packaged in a clear wrapper, so you can see the whole nuts, seeds, and raisins that make up the bar. Bora Boa bars are available in five flavors, but I thought the Almond Sunflower bar looked especially good.

Want to see what I thought? Then


Serving Size 1 bar
Calories 180
Total Fat 11g
Saturated Fat 1.5g
Cholesterol 0mg
Sodium 15mg
Carbs 18g
Fiber 2g
Sugar 12g
Protein 5g

This bar tastes just as you'd expect — kind of like trail mix. I love that the ingredient list is short and sweet: raisins, whole peanuts, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pieces of Brazil nuts, crispy brown rice, and agave syrup. They use agave syrup instead of honey because it has a low glycemic index so it won't affect your blood sugar levels as much.

I loved the crunchy and chewy consistency, and the agave syrup added the perfect amount of sweetness without being sticky. This bar will give you 5g of protein and 2g of fiber, so it's a healthy snack that'll satisfy your hunger. I would definitely buy this bar again, and now I'm excited to try out the other flavors.

I guess it's due to the nuts but this seems awfully high in fat...

Why do so many "energy bars" rely on carbs rather than protein? So users get that horrible quick sugar buzz-esque rush than the crash and hunger again.I'm trying to stick with protein bars over energy bars. Protein brs that have natural protein sources and low gylemic indexs and a low ratio of carbs or at least some complex carbs in there.
