RXBAR Product Review

RXBAR review

I love the simplicity of these bars. There is a short list of ingredients for all bars that I can both pronounce and identify. I try to stay away from packaged foods because they usually contain a bunch of made-in-a-lab terrible for you ingredients. Although when something is as great for you and convenient as an RXBAR I had to give them a second glance. All the bars contain no artificial sweeteners and have some sort of dates, nuts and egg whites in them. They are gluten and dairy free bars. Each RXBAR contains whole protein from egg whites making the bars chewy but I saw no issues with the texture.

Below is a definitive foodie-approved ranking of RXBAR Flavors:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Maple Sea Salt
  • Blueberry
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Chocolate Sea Salt
  • Coffee Chocolate
  • Coconut Chocolate
  • Mint Chocolate

 

Peanut Butter: The peanut butter bars have a creamy peanut butter base with peanut chunks throughout. These have a strong peanut aroma and leave you feeling like you just licked the spoon!

Maple Sea: Smells and tastes just like maple syrup. The salt flakes make for a perfectly salty and sweet combo that balances out the sweetness of the maple. Throughout the bar you will find whole nuts which gives the bar awesome texture. The bar itself is soft with little chunks of nut throughout. I love how the bar has no added sugar and is sweetened with just dates.

Blueberry: yummy bar that can double as a breakfast. It contains dried blueberries and nuts. It has a similar flavor complex to a blueberry muffin.

Apple Cinnamon: Smells like fall and honestly as good as those Glade-plug in cinnamon apple air freshener. There is a strong cinnamon taste that can be overpowering at first but is balanced out quite well by the apple flavor. The bar is chewy but is not artificial tasting.

Chocolate Sea Salt: Deep dark chocolate flavor with sea salt flecks for complexity.

Coffee Chocolate: I am wondering if I got a caffeine jolt from this bar? It has a strong coffee flavor with chunks of rich dark chocolate.

Mint Chocolate: Not a terrible flavor but I wasn’t crazy about how strong the mint flavor was in this. It also contains chunks of dark chocolate.

If I was going to purchase a box of these it would for sure be the Maple Sea Salt or Peanut Butter. You can buy these bars here.
