A while ago I received a box full of goodies from Raw Revolution. I have been eyeing their Organic Live Food Bars at Whole Foods and was ecstatic to finally try them out!!
These bars are vegan, uncooked, peanut-free, dairy-free, made with organic & sprouted flax seeds, preservative-free, kosher, contain no refined sugars, non GMO, contain omega 3 & omega 6 fatty acids, low sodium, cholesterol-free, contain up to 6g of fiber and 8g of protein, contain no artificial ingredients and are made with organic sunflower seeds. The owner of Raw Revolution is also a registered nurse and a natural foods chef (ahhh I would love to have her life!). These are the definition of a clean, au naturale, healthy snack!
Tropical Banana – Very prominent banana taste, so if you don’t like bananas I wouldn’t recommend this one! I loved it though.
Lemon Dew – My favorite of these three! Light and refreshing taste (refreshing is a weird word to describe a bar but I don’t know how else to describe it!)
Apple Cinnamon – Reminded me of a healthy version of apple pie!
These were my favorite! I liked that they weren’t as high in calories as the original, came in more fruity flavors (surprising because I usually like chocolate flavored bars!), and had added green goodness like spirulina, kale, broccoli & wheat grass powder.
Chocolate Raspberry Truffle – Not very sweet, barely there raspberry and chocolate taste.
Coconut Delight – Very nutty and had a sweet coconut flavor.
Chocolate Crave – Not my favorite, it was too bitter and rich for my liking.
Spirulina Dream – Tasted just like Golden Cashew but it was green!
Golden Cashew – My favorite flavor! Chewy, and just sweet enough.
Chocolate Coconut Bliss – Very dense, could be a little sweeter (it had a bitter flavor from the cocoa powder i think), and a light coconut flavor.
Heavenly Hazelnut Chocolate – I could definitely taste the hazelnuts but it was a little to bitter.
They also have two new flavors that I’d be interested in trying: Cherry Chocolate Chunk and Almond Butter Cup!
Cashew & Agave Nectar – Just like Golden Cashew!
Spirulina & Cashew – Same as Spirulina Dream!
Chocolate & Cashew – Not a fave, just like Chocolate Crave.
Chocolate & Coconut – Pretty good, similar to Chocolate Coconut Bliss. I like the first two of these the best though.
All in all, these bars do live up to their healthy name, although the flavors were not particularly amazing. At least not enough to get me to spend $2+ per bar at the grocery store. If they were more in the $1-2 price range then I think I would buy Spirulina Dream and any of the Greens Superfood bars on occasion.
Thanks to Raw Revolution for letting me sample their products!
Have you guys tried any of their bars? Let me know what you think/thought!
