Honest Foods Almond Trail Mix Bar Review

Honest Foods Almond Trail Mix BarHonest Foods Bars (now called Earnest Eats) have always intrigued me with their smooth, dense nature, sleek packaging design and all natural profile. I am a bar girl at heart (as in the portable nourishment typically consisting of oats, dried fruit and/or nuts, type of bar), therefore, Honest Foods roped me in and after one bite of their Almond Trail Mix Bar, and I'm happy to keep them in my nutritious and delicious world.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 54 grams
Calories: 210
Total Fat: 9 grams, 14%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 190 mg, 8%
Carbohydrates: 31 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugars: 14 grams
Protein: 6 grams

As I began to enjoy this portable mid-day snack, I immediately detected a very prevalent almond flavor, which tastes as though it's coming from an abundance of almond extract. The bar itself is dense and moist; but, thankfully, not to the point that your fingers get all sticky (my math homework would have paid the price, otherwise). Better yet, you can spot whole almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and walnuts, which I loved. The texture is just perfect and with the second ingredient being almond butter, this is one smooth treat that will keep you satisfied in more ways than one (say "hello" to 6 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber)! The first ingredient, organic whole oats, provides a substantial chew, complementing the "trail mix" add-ins very nicely.

In addition, each huge 54 gram bar provides 210 calories, 14% of the daily value for total fat, 5% of the DV for saturated fat and 14 grams of sugars. Furthermore, it is vegan-friendly and packed with 190mg of Omega-3's.

The ingredients list is all natural, and as I mentioned before, you can pretty much see all the ingredients in the bar - talk about minimally processed!

I thoroughly enjoyed this bar and took pleasure in just how natural it is, but I might suggest that they cut back on the almond extract just a touch. As the wrapper states, "our products look, smell and taste amazing because they are naturally that way". Sums it right up, I think! Each bar typically costs about $2.00, depending on where you happen to come across them. This is somewhat expensive, seeing as they are typically sitting next to a bar that is on sale for $1.00. However, go the extra mile, spend the extra dollar, and you will be rewarded.
