Bought them again this year….will be a yummy snack on the road to Kentucky!
As LG and I were maneuvering the crowds at the Inman Park festival Sunday, we came upon a booth with samples of organic bars, granolas, and nut mixes. Pure Bliss. I had sampled them at Whole Foods a few months ago and having only had a protein shake for lunch before the festival, I was craving a little treat.
I tried the mocha java flavor and loved it. They also have coconut acai, and chocolate peanut butter. The bars also come cut into chunks in a bag for snacking. Three little pieces constitute a serving (approximately 1/3 of a bar), with 130 calories (kinda high), 4.5 g. fat, 20 g. carbs, and 3 g. protein, 3 g. fiber, and 9 g. sugar.
The company is local and the product, although not a diet food, is delicious and vegan, made with dates, almonds, walnuts, oats, brown rice crisps, cocoa powder, flax meal, cocoa butter, cocoa liquor, brown rice syrup, and evaporated cane juice (we all know this is sugar).
I’m working towards eliminating toxic, processed foods from my diet. Not an easy task! Goodies like Pure Bliss make it easier.
