Organic Food Bar One (Chocolate Macaroon Crunch) Review

Organic Food Bar One (Chocolate Macaroon Crunch)I'll be the first to admit that the brand name - Organic Food Bar - isn't incredibly inventive, but really, it tells you all you need to know: that these bars are 100% organic. As a chocoholic, one flavor that I was immediately drawn to was the Organic Food Bar One (Chocolate Macaroon Crunch). From the website, "Our Macaroon Crunch harkens back to the homemade macaroons that mom made, the ones you couldn't wait to eat before they cooled. But, Organic Food bar One, Chocolate Macaroon Crunch, contains something very special: probiotics. Each bar is packed with over one billion probiotic cultures, more than ten times the active cultures found in yogurt!"

I opened up my bar and was greeted with the pleasant aroma of coconut. Unfortunately, I didn't see that much chocolate, and when I bit in, I tasted predominately coconut too. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE coconut but more chocolate would have been nice. That said, this tastes wonderful and it's absolutely delicious. The coconut is moist but not sticky, and the texture is just chewy enough without breaking your jaw or just melting away in your mouth.

The delightfully decadent taste of this Organic Food Bar had me a little fearful of looking at the nutrition facts. So, of course I enjoyed every last bite before I turned the wrapper over. I found that each 45 gram bar provides 210 calories, 10 grams of fat, 7 grams of which is saturated (15% and 35% of the daily value), 6 grams of fiber (24% of the DV), 19 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.

The ingredients includes Organic Rice Syrup, Organic Coconut, Organic Coconut Almond Granola (Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Barley Flakes, Organic Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Organic Raisins, Organic Almonds, Organic Coconut, Organic Oat Bran, Organic Sunflower Seeds) Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Bio Sprouts™ - Millet, Organic Chocolate Chips (Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Chocolate Liquor, Organic Cocoa Butter), Organic Acacia Fiber and Bacillus Coagulans GBI-30 6086. I listed out all the ingredients because as organic as this is, it's mostly organic sugar & coconut - which accounts for the high fat and sugars.

I bought Organic Food Bar One (Chocolate Macaroon Crunch) on sale for $0.99 cents, and while it's delicious, plus props to them for the probiotics, I could only eat this as a treat with all the sugar & fat. I would go with Attune Dark Chocolate Probiotic Wellness Bars instead.
