BumbleBar Organic Energy Bar (Lushus Lemon)

BumbleBars are gluten free, vegan organic energy, sesame bars. I tried the BumbleBar Chai with Almonds Organic Energy Bar way back when (in 2007), and just didn't get around to trying another flavor of this bar until now. Luckily for me, the company sent me a sampler pack to re-introduce me to some of the varieties, including Lushus Lemon, which is the first one I picked up to try.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (45 grams)
Calories: 210
Total Fat: 12 grams, 19%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 8%
Sodium: 70 mg, 2%
Carbohydrates: 20 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugar: 10 grams
Protein: 6 grams

They aren't kidding when they named this flavor "lemon" as the aroma permeates every inch of this bar. Lucky for me, the lemon scent is stronger than the taste - I just don't think I would like a strongly tasting lemon nutrition bar. The texture is what really makes this bar delicious. The sesame seeds are held together in a matrix of brown rice syrup, along with flax seeds - but rest assured that BumbleBar did not make this bar too sweet - I don't how they managed it - but thank goodness that they did. I need to hear from other people who've tried this bar, because I always feel like the texture is similar to a bar with shredded coconut - not in taste, but in mouth-feel (and I know there is no coconut in the ingredients), but that's what this bar reminds me of.

Each 45 gram provides 210 calories from 12 grams of total fat (19% of the daily value), 1.5 grams of saturated fat (8% of the DV), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 10 grams of sugars and 6 grams of fiber. The ingredients list includes, Organic Sesame Seeds, Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Flax Seeds, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Crisp Brown Rice, Organic Soy Crisp, Organic Extract Of Vanilla, Organic Lemon Flavor (Organic Sunflower/Safflower Oil, Organic Lemon Oil) Natural Vitamin E For Freshness, Sea Salt, Organic Tumeric, Natural Vitamin E. for Freshness.

I LOVE this bar. It's organic, it's natural, not dripping in sugar, but the total fat could use some work (difficult I know, when the bar is all sesame seeds & flax seeds) - and the fiber content is good, plus there's some protein too. BumbleBars can be purchased online at $2.00 for each bar, and the Lushus Lemon is good stuff and worth buying - it's a little cheaper if you can find it at your local natural foods store though.
