What’s better than a slice of steaming hot apple or cherry pie? Yea, I couldn’t think of¬†anything either ūüėȬ†(except if it’s topped with some vanilla frozen yogurt- a la mode!!)

Organic Food Bar has several types of bars¬†that are all organic, all healthy, and according to the website, “outrageously good”! The company sent me a few of their bars to try, like the Cherry Pie flavored Bar,¬†and the Apple Pie Bar was purchased. What’s cool about these is a portion of the proceeds spent on the bars goes to support local schools- nice! These bars are preservative free, have no trans fats, are unprocessed, no artificial ingredients, are dairy free, and have no high fructose corn syrup or refined sugars.

Each bar is a typical breakfast or granola bar size, but these bars do not have the typical texture. In fact, they have a fruity/chewy texture, similar to a PURE bar.

Cherry Pie- This one says Oohmega! on the cover, as it provides 1000 mg Omega 3’s per bar. Woop! It was¬†lightly sweetened, almost bland at first. The flavor comes through after you chew it for a bit, and then you taste a bit of cherry. It’s not bad, but it’s a bit off. There are little oat pieces dispersed throughout, and it also has a funky “flaxseed” taste to it. Also, when you hold the bar, you get an oily texture left on your fingers- but the first ingredient is cashew butter, so that’s probably why. What I did like was that there was a delicious cherry chunk in the bar, that added some instant sweetness. Sadly, it didn’t remind me of¬† homemade cherry pie, and I give it 2 1/2.

Apple Pie- this one says Oooatmeal!¬† on the cover. I’m not sure why, but this one was much better. It had little pieces of apples dispersed throughout, and the cinnamon was a nice compliment to the bar. It was much sweeter than the Cherry flavored one, and actually did sort of remind me of Apple Pie! I wonder what it would taste like heated up in the microwave… I would eat this one again- 4 stars.

Overall, not bad. I’d like to try some of their other bars Organic Food Bar has to offer and give them a shot. I do like that these are unprocessed, contain¬† healthy fats, and are sweetened with agave rather than refined sugar. A nice change to a sugar laden granola bar every now and then!
