Laura raved about Weil By Nature's Path Organic Chia Razz Pure Fruit And Nut Bar and I couldn't wait to try one myself, so I couldn't believe my luck when the company actually sent me samples to review. The attractiveness of these bars is that they are contain no artificial ingredients, no added sugars or GMOs and they're vegan. Plus Dr. Andrew Weil is a leading physician in the field of alternative medicine, as well as a well known published author.
I started with the Pistachi-Oh! variety which is supposed to be a combination of pistachio and organic spices. I took a bite and to describe the first thought that came to mind was that this is one weird flavor. Maybe it's just me, but I felt that whatever spices they used - they used too much which made this bar taste ... off ... too much and too strong. The ingredients list is of course organic everything: dates, cashews, pistachios, dried unsweetened coconut, lemon juice concentrate, and spices. Bars made primarily from dates tend to be sweet first and foremost, and with this bar, there was not much else to it - even the cashew and pistachios seemed finely chopped and didn't add much to neither the texture nor the taste.
Each 45 gram bar provides 190 calories, 10% of the daily value for both total and saturated fat, no cholesterol or sodium, 4 grams of fiber, 20 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein. I got these as samples from the company, but they run around $1.49-1.99 each. To me, that seems like way too much to pay for bars that don't really taste that good. I would rather have a Larabar Pistachio Bar.
