Food Review: Bumble Bar Chai With Almonds

Something about the flavor of cardamom makes me crave chai tea, so I was curious about the Chai Bumble Bar with Almonds. An energy bar that tastes like chai — how delightful.

This bar, like all Bumble Bars, is organic, vegan and gluten-free. These bars were dreamed up by avid hiker Elizabeth Ward who found it oxymoronic that hikers were enjoying nature while eating snack foods made with ingredients that harmed the planet, being conventionally grown. I wouldn't limit my consumption of this bar to just hiking, it is a great pre-gym snack.

To see what I thought of the bar and its nutritional information

It is chock full of seedy goodness and chai spices: ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and turmeric. The chai spices really jazz up this bar and I must say I think the flavor is superior to their Original vanilla flavor. The taste was a little jarring on the first bite, but the subsequent bites seemed perfectly spiced. The texture is great too and the almonds add a little extra crunch to the experience. I really appreciate those four grams of fiber and those six grams of protein! Try one and let me know what you think.

Eh, I'm not a big energy bar person, so I probably won't be trying this. If you like chai, it probably tastes ok.

I think I had one of those before. I recall that it looked just like this food block that I used to feed my parakeet when I was a kid. I don't remember what it tasted like - I only remember thinking "whatever happened to me bird?"
