Organic Food Bar (Wild Blueberry) Review

Organic Food Bar (Wild Blueberry)Organic Food Bar products are 100% certified organic, and they boast that :the World's first organic bar is now the World's best selling organic bar." Well, I tell you, I couldn't wait to try this out. I eat a nutrition bar practically every day, and my only problem with this brand was trying to decide which variety to try first from the sample pack the company sent me. I opted for the Organic Food bar Wild Blueberry flavor first, because each bar has at least 20% wild, whole, organic blueberries. Oh - and did I mention that this bar is vegan and 98% raw too?!

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 68 grams
Calories: 300
Total Fat: 12 grams, 19%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 6%
Sodium: 5 mg, 0%
Carbohydrates: 35 grams
Fiber: 7 grams, 28%
Sugar: 24 grams
Protein: 9 grams
I opened my bar and took a bite. Finally, a natural bar that's not "date" based (like LaraBar Cherry Pie Bar) - dates are on the ingredient list, but quite close to the end. This bar is instead made with almond butter, and it shines through in the taste but it's not overly nutty at all. Instead, this blueberry bar tastes like a super dense blueberry muffin, and quite sweet, but in an entirely natural way. Deliciously yum. The ingredients are simply, organic Almond Butter, Organic Blueberries (Organic Blueberries, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Maple Syrup, (0,5%) Organic Sunflower Oil), Organic Dates, Organic Premium Blue Agave Nectar, Organic Bio SproutsTM - Flax, Organic Sesame seeds and "Lots of Love!"

Each 68 gram Organic Food Bar (Wild Blueberry) provides 300 calories, 12 grams of total fat, 1.5 grams of which is saturated (19% and 6% of the daily value)), 7 grams of fiber (28% of the DV), 24 grams of sugars and 9 grams of protein.

When looking at the calorie count, bear in mind that this is a pretty hefty bar, weighing in at 68 grams. These bars retail for about $2.49 each. That's quite pricey but for the quality of ingredients, it might be worth it to a lot of people (but maybe not dieters). The sugar content is quite up there too, which means that for me, this is more of a treat, something I would eat instead of a blueberry muffin (which has much more calories, fat & sugar).
