Bora Bora Organic Foods bars

Author: Healthnuttxo

Bora Bora Organic Foods– doesn’t the name just make you feel like you are on vacation? I know it did for me! Bora Bora Organic Foods sent me some of their bars to try (along with a cute mug and t-shirt- thanks, guys!! =) ), and I must say they were quite unlike anything I have tried before. These bars come in a variety of flavors, and, according to the website, fall under 3 ¬†categories- “SUPERFOOD”, “ENERGY”, and “ANTIOXIDANT”. I tried the Tribal Cinnamon Oatmeal and Tiki Blueberry Flax bars.

Tribal Cinnamon Oatmeal– this one falls under the “ENERGY” category, and is also vegan and gluten free. I must say this one was certainly DELICIOUS! Chewy and sweet, it reminded me of an oatmeal cookie. I just loved the cinnamon flavor- absolutely delicious. There were also little crisp rice pieces throughout the bar, and chewy, sweet apple pieces. I also loved that this bar was only 5 grams of fat. Woo! 4 1/2 stars

Tiki Blueberry Flax- this one falls under the “ANTIOXIDANT” category, and is also vegan and gluten free. Not as sweet as the Tribal Cinnamon Oatmeal bar, but still pretty good. I liked te big, crunchy almonds, which balanced nicely with the chewy crisp rice. The raisins and the blueberries added the sweetness, although it was mild. I also tasted a little bit of flaxseed aftertaste, and a pumpkin seed flavor. 3 stars

Tribal Cinnamon Oatmeal- 1 bar is 170 calories, 5 grams of fat, 26 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 14 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.

Tiki Blueberry Flax- 1 bar is 180 calories, 9 grams of fat, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 8 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of protein.
