Food Review: Yotta Bar

When I need a quick snack, granola and energy bars are the best because I can slip them into my purse, desk drawer, or gym bag, and they'll stay fresh until I need a pick-me-up. I just came across a new kind of bar made by the Undercover Vegetable Company. Incredible name, huh? The bars are called Yotta Bars, and they come in three flavors: Cherry, Orange, and Apple Cinnamon.

The package says, "One serving of veggies and fruits per chewy granola bar," and website says they're made without refined sugars and contain only ingredients everyone can pronounce. Sounds healthy, but how do these bars taste? To see what I thought,

.

I so wish I was loving this bar because the ingredients are so healthy. But I guess there's a reason no other energy bar company has added dehydrated peas, asparagus, broccoli, sweet potatoes, celery, green pepper, corn, spinach, and parsley to its granola bars. I'm sorry, but the dried bits of apple were not enough to cover up the fact that these bars are full of veggies. I did like the chewy consistency and the slightly crispy oats, but I'll be nice and say that I just didn't care for the flavor (I could say much worse). Peeking at the nutritional info, these bars aren't outstanding in anyway, so I'll stick to eating my veggies in a salad or with my meals, and if I'm feeling snacky, I'll take a Larabar instead.

I just heard of these & was wondering what the nutritional rundown was, sounds like the other flavors might be able to mask the veggies a bit better

I personally will stick to my Think 5 bars when wanting to get a lot of veggies and fruit into one snack. They're relatively ok tasting, but definitely worth it on days where you know you'll be at a BBQ and probably not able to sneak in all the servings of veggies and fruit you need. One bar = 3 servings of veggies + 2 servings of fruit! I get the Chocolate Red Berry kind because the chocolate masks the intense veggie/fruit flavor of the bar (which is green, by the way)... http://www.thinkproducts.com/5-bars.php

I don't eat a lot of energy bars, but these sound really healthy...almost like, too healthy. I tried a juice drink made with pureed spinach, broccoli, cucumbers, and watermelon. Supposedly, the watermelon was supposed to mask the veggie taste, but it didn't. I bet that's how these bars are. I prefer to have my fruits separate from my veggies, I guess.

Good call. Plus, other than the 1 serving (which really isn't that much) of veggies, the nutritional info (calories/fat/carbs/protein) is astoundingly similar to...a candy bar.
