If You Love Sesame Seeds, You'll Love BumbleBars

If You Love Sesame Seeds, You'll Love BumbleBars

When it comes to food, I definitely judge a snack bar by its package. The bright golden colored wrapper on the BumbleBar is what attracted me to it (I also like cute names). Many energy bars can include lots of crappy ingredients, but when I flipped this bar over and read the nutritional info, I was pleasantly surprised.

After I checked out the website, I discovered that BumbleBars were designed by a woman (wahoo!) named Liz Ward. She lived in the woods and hiked 8 miles every day. She thought it was a crazy oxymoron that hikers were outside in this beautiful environment, but they were eating foods that harmed the planet (she's against non-organic and dairy based foods). So she developed organic, vegan and gluten-free Bumblebars.

I tried the Original flavor. If you want to take a peek at the picture and the nutritional info, and hear what I thought then

Serving Size 1 bar
Calories 230
Total Fat 16g
Saturated Fat 2g
Cholesterol 0mg
Sodium 75mg
Carbs 17g
Fiber 5g
Sugar 9g
Protein 6g
Ingredients Organic sesame seeds, Organic brown rice syrup, organic flaxseed, organic evaporated cane juice, organic peanuts, organic vanilla, organic cinnamon, sea salt, natural vitamin E for freshness.

This bar is all about sesame seeds and flaxseeds. Initially, when you take a bite, it has a delightful vanilla and cinnamon flavor, but that soon wears away and you're left with the earthy flavor of those two seeds. Sesame seeds are not my favorite so I wasn't a huge fan of the seedy aftertaste, but I do like the fact that this bar is made with all organic ingredients. What's more? One bar has tons of protein and fiber. I'm telling you, if you LOVE sesame seeds, this is the bar for you.

I'll be sticking to my Larabars too. I just tried the chocolate coconut and it's great just like all the others... :)

16 grams of fat?! That seems quite high (the Balance Bar I just ate has 6 grams of fat).

I'm not completely sold on the concept but I'm always happy to have a non soy option. I prefer the Nectar bars to Laras though.

They are a little pricey over here, but as a vegan the Bumble Bars are one of my favorite treats. I love the Chai flavored bars the most.
