A couple week ago I hinted that I had a few giveaways coming up. Well, I figure this weird rainy/snowy Spring day is a great time for one of them!
The very nice people at Raw Crunch Bar sent me a box of bars to try out and giveaway!
The founders, Ross and Kathy, were both in the fitness industry, always wanting to eat fresh, real food instead of stuff filled with ingredients they couldn't pronounce. So, they worked hard to find just the right combinations; this North Carolina company makes each cranberry, goji berry, blueberry and chocolate bar by hand to guarantee freshness.
I love that these bars are fresh with all natural ingredients. They all come in at 150 calories, which I really like. As much as I love larabars, I feel like each new flavor they come out with has even more calories than the last. At 150, it's a good snack that'll hold me over and give me the energy I need, but not as many calories as a mini-meal. They're low in sugar and sodium which is always a good thing. And in case you're wondering, except for the chocolate flavor, they're all gluten, soy, dairy, and peanut-free (the chocolate isn't raw or soy-free).
Like the name says, these are raw and crunchy. They have a tendency to break up, especially after I threw it in my purse that seems to hold more stuff than a suitcase! They can be crumbly, but they are good.
The blueberry was a bit sweet and I would have liked a little more chocolate in the chocolate version, but that's because I can always take a little more chocolate! The cranberry was a perfect a mid-afternoon snack while I was out running errands. I shared a little with Woody and he thought it was a little dry, but agreed it's just because they aren't held together with something like dates, like larabars are, which naturally add a little moisture. He did like it though.
At first bite I knew I was going to like these. They're fresh, crunchy and healthy. I'll definitely be seeking our more of these bars!
Okay, so the giveaway. Enter before Sunday March 27th at 10:00pm EDT.
One lucky winner will win one bar of each of the four flavors!
