I was at Trader Joe’s the other day and decided to check out the nutrition bar aisle to see if there were any newbies. At first glance I noticed “Pure” bars. The bright beautiful and clean packaging definitely caught my eye. Upon further investigation I really loved that these bars are all natural, gluten free and vegan. Then I flipped the bar around to read the nutrition label and ingredient list. For an average of 180 calories each bar has approximately 3-5 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein, are low in saturated fat, and the ingredient list…. nothing but goodness. Ok, ok….I decided to give them a whirl hoping the taste was as good as the marketing.
I picked up the Chocolate Brownie Pure Bar… need I explain why this one caught my attention?
