Oskri Organics Quinoa Bar Review

Oskri Organics Quinoa BarAfter my wonderful experience with an Oskri Cashew Bar the other day, I decided to try more. After all, the amazingly short ingredient lists and their delicious taste means was really cemented in my memory. This time I opted for the Oskri Organics Quinoa Bar. Quinoa is a super-healthy grain I've recently discovered, but I don't think I've even heard of it being used in a nutrition bar before,

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (53 grams)
Calories: 230
Total Fat: 12 grams, 16%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 61 mg, 4%
Carbohydrates:26 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugar: 14 grams
Protein: 4 grams

I shelled out my $1.39 for the bar at Whole Foods, and opened the package right away (if you've figured out anything about me so far, it's that I have little self-restraint when it comes to trying new foods). I liked the fact that the 53-gram serving was divided into three crispy sheets, which made me feel like I was eating more. The appearance of the bar/sheets was that of a grain-studded "cracker" of sweetened goodness, and the scent was intoxicating: sweet but not too sweet. The sweet scent probably came from the first and last of the four ingredients in the list - rice syrup, quinoa, sesame seeds, and date syrup. The taste was fantastic too, with a nice hearty crunch and just the right amount of sweetness. So good Oskri Organics Quinoa Bar.

Each serving of Oskri Organics Quinoa Bar (3 sheets, or one package) provides 230 calories, 12 grams of fat, no saturated, 4% of the daily value for sodium, 3 grams of fiber, 14 grams of sugar and 6 grams of protein.

All in all, I love this bar - the taste, nutrition facts & ingredients - it's so rare to find a product in which all three things are just on point!
