Food Review: Bear Naked Chocolaty Cherry Granola Bar

Granola bars make great pre and post-workout snacks, so I always keep some in my gym bag to nosh on. Since variety is the spice of life, I like to try out news ones, and recently sampled some Bear Naked Grain-ola Bars.

Each bar is made with 15 to 17 grams of whole grains, with no hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, or preservatives. To find out what I thought of the Chocolaty Cherry flavor, keep reading.

The soft and chewy consistency of this bar reminded me of a homemade cookie, and that is a plus. As you can see from the photo, it's made mostly with whole oats, but you can also see bits of dried cherries, pecans, and almonds. The oats and ground flaxseeds add a fair amount of fiber, and the honey, maple syrup, and molasses add a subtle natural sweetness. The chocolaty flavor complements the cherry perfectly, so it tasted more like a dessert than a granola bar.

This bar is slightly high in the calorie department, but definitely kept my energy levels high throughout a tough cardio workout. If chocolate doesn't float your boat, Bear Naked makes these grain-ola bars in two other flavors, Fruit + Nut and Tropical Fruit. Each bar is less than $2, so they're affordable, tasty, and satisfying.
