Tasty Vegan Snack Bars – Yes, it is possible!

ok… I will be honest with you, I am not a vegan or a vegetarian or planning on becoming one. I love meat just to much. However, I do occasionally enjoy having a vegan snack bar. I stumbled across these one day when I was shopping at Naturista’s, here in Lethbridge. This is a relatively new locally owned Health Food Store.

So one day when I was in there shopping for a new water bottle – thanks to BPA’s. One of the employee’s at Naturista’s asked me if I have ever tried a vegan snack bar. At first I was a bit skeptical, however, I thought there is always a first for everything. To my amazement, they are actually quite good.

Some of my favorite vegan snack bars are:

Bumble Bar – ok the name is kind of weird, but the bar’s are quite good. There are mimg_1918any different flavors to choose from, however my favorite one is the Chocolate Crisp. It is a sweet blend of sesame seeds, crisp brown rice and peanuts. I find that this bar is great alternative to a regular old chocolate bar. I have also tried there new one, Cherry Chocolate, however, the mixture of cherries, chocolate and sesame seeds didn’t sit so well.

 

 

Healthy Addictions bars – they got their name right with this one! So far I have only tried the Coco Bliss img_1916flavor and it was quite addicting – I now have a craving for another one! This bar is vegetarian and made with raw ingredients such as – coconut and agave syrup. This is a soft chewy bar with raw agave syrup in the middle and the outside is made of raw cocoa with raw agave syrup. It has a sweet taste, again it made a nice alternative to a  chocolate bar.

 

The Simply Bar – this bar kind of reminds me of a rice crispy square, but available in more flavors. It is aimg_1931-2 natural bar with low calories and lots of protein – 17g. WOW!!! However, this bar is not my favorite. I find that they are a bit dry and sometimes hard. Again, they come in lots of different flavors – I have only tried the Lemon Coconut, and I didn’t really like it. However, I would try another flavor such as the Cocoa Coffee or the Chocolate Peanut Butter.

Again, all of these bars can be bought right here in Lethbridge, Alberta at Naturista’s. I would also assume they could be purchased at any Health Food Store.

    I am a big fan of the Simply Bar. You would be hard pressed to eat a snack that has as much protein and as few calories as the Simply Bar.

    It’s also made from non genetically modified ingredients, which is important for the earth.

  3. Thanks for the great comments on our bars at Naturistas.
    Let us know if you discover any that you love and suggest the store sells.
