I Wish I Could Just Make My Own…
Do you ever go food shopping and are in the mood for something..but just can’t find EXACTLY what you are looking for? If the answer is Yes, than I am right there with you. I get this way very often when food shopping..but especially when I am looking for granola bars. Some have chocolate, but no antioxidants. Some have protein but no fruit. Some have almond butter but no almonds. I always end up buying a few of each so I can satisfy all of my needs.
This all changed when I discovered YouBar (click on the picture above to visit the site!). The very inexpensive way to create your very own granola bar…that includes everything you love. You click through your favorite base, what vitamins and minerals you want, flavors, extras, and even name the bar whatever you want! I decided to give this a try to see if I really could successfully combine all of my favorite tastes.
- Base: Organic almond butter & organic dates
- Raw almonds
- Organic agave nectar
- Organic dark chocolate chips
- Soy protein isolate
- Organic Goji berries
- Organic flaxseeds
- Antioxidant infusion
- Organic ginger
- Vitamin C
So obviously I taste tested one upon arrival and it was pretty good!! Definitely a great energy bar before a workout or an afternoon snack..even better accompanied by some water or coconut water!
The box of 12 granola bars was priced at $41.00 which includes shipping and handling (just to put that in perspective that is $3.48 per granola bar which is less than the price of an individual Kind, Luna or Clif bar). They arrived promptly on my doorstep 3 days after ordering and the company assures you that if you do not like your bars, you can return them and get another! Additionally, if you are not confident enough to put together your own, you can order their most popular flavors or a variety pack of bars made by others (they always make extra of each order to try them out and add them to these packs!) so you could end up with some pretty cool flavors!!
Do these bars sounds delicious to anyone? Please keep in mind that they do contain soy and wheat (just in case we have any food allergies out there). But..how about winning some of my signature bars (named after my successful Florida Keys Ragnar Relay team)?!?!
