BumbleBar Organic Energy Bar (Cherry Chocolate)

BumbleBars are gluten free, vegan organic energy, sesame bars. So far, we've reviewed Lushus Lemon and the Chai with Almonds, both of which are mighty tasty. The company sent me a few more varieties to try out and since there are a few chocolholics in the house, they almost snuck off with the Cherry Chocolate flavor. Luckily, I managed to get it back, so I could do a review.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (40 grams)
Calories: 180
Total Fat: 10 grams, 16%
Saturated Fat: 3 grams, 16%
Sodium: 105 mg, 4%
Carbohydrates: 19 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugars: 14 grams
Protein: 4 grams

I think this might be my favorite BumbleBar flavor. The taste of chocolate is oh so yummy, and surprisingly, it doesn't taste too sweet. There is also a scent of cocoa powder, which is very enticing. It's weird, but one thing I notice about BumbleBars is that they all have an aroma, which is usually related to the flavor. The cherries are present all throughout, and they add a nice change in texture from the the crunchy sesame seeds from which this bar is made.

The ingredients in the Cherry Chocolate BumbleBar are, Organic Agave, Organic Sesame Seeds, Organic Dried Cherries, Organic Dairy Free Chocolate Chips (Organic Cocoa Liquor, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Sugar, Soy Lecithin {GMO FREE}), Organic Coconut, Organic Flax Seeds, Organic Almonds, Organic Cocoa Powder, Organic Chocolate Extract, Organic Cherry Flavor, Sea Salt, Natural Mixed Tocopherols, A Natural Source Vitamin E Used to Protect Freshness.

Each 40 gram bar provides 180 calories, 10 grams of total fat, 3 grams of which is saturated (16% of the daily value), 14 grams of sugars, 4 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. This bar has more saturated fat & more sugar than the other flavors reviewed, and for this reason, I might not reach for this as often as the other flavors. Still, I'm a fan of this bar and BumbleBars in general - organic, all natural ingredients list, and hefty enough size to make it last. You can buy these bars online at the Bumblebar website - $1.80 on sale currently, regular price of $2.00. Totally worth it!
