Taste of Nature review and Giveaway

I love to eat. I try to eat as healthy as possible, but I want my food to taste good, so more often than not, I end up eating junk food(meaning all foods made with artificial nonsense and such).

Unfortunately, I always seem to choose my taste buds over my waistline and my health. Finding a product that as beneficial to both is not easy by any means.

I have found a new snack food though, and it is the best of both worlds. Taste of Nature makes snack bars that will blow your mind.

Not only do they taste amazing, but they are made with real ingredients you can actually recognize and they are actually good for you.

Every bar is 100% Certified Organic, Gluten Free, Certified Kosher, Certified Vegan, Low Sodium, Non-GMO, and Good Source of fiber.They are also Low Glycemic.

Some also are a good source of antioxidants and/or Omega-3.

I was able to try 6 of the flavors, and they are all fantastic.

Himalayan Goji Summit:

Contains: Peanuts*, raisins*, sunflower seeds*, almonds*, agave nectar*, goji berries*, brown rice syrup*, raspberries*.
*Certified Organic

This flavor is bright and fruity. The chewy texture is wonderful, and the hearty nuts make this bar ultra satisfying. The best of sweet and savory perfectly accenting each other.

If you are a fan of Goji berries(and raspberries) than this is the bar for you. This is the superfood powerhouse of nutrition.

Persian Pomegranate Garden:

Contains: Cashews*, walnuts*, agave nectar*, figs*, cranberries* (cranberries*, apple juice concentrate*, sunflower oil*), apples*, pomegranate juice concentrate*, brown rice syrup*, whole grain brown rice crisps*, raspberries*.
*Certified Organic

This is the fruitiest of all the varieties. This variety is like an island vacation in a bar. It is very unique compared to any other snack bar or packed food available.

This has a wonderful chewy bite thanks to the fruit pieces, but it is also very crisp(lightly, not crunchy). The nut give this a really nice balance of flavor, but the fruit is the star of this one.

Brazilian Nut Fiesta:

Contains: Raisins*, peanuts*, agave nectar*, sunflower seeds*, almonds*, Brazilian nuts*, brown rice syrup*, walnuts*, whole grain brown rice crisps*, pumpkin seeds*.
*Certified Organic

As the name suggests, the nuts really are the star of this show, but the raisins and agave nectar give this a perfect sweetness to contrast the salty and savory nuts. 

The protein this bar provides makes it perfect for natural energy before/after working out or playing sports.  

California Almond Valley:

Contains: Almonds*, raisins*, sesame seeds*, agave nectar*, sunflower seeds*, brown rice syrup*, pumpkin seeds*, whole grain brown rice crisps*.
*Certified Organic

Almond lovers rejoice. This is the bar for you. Takes the ordinary almond and turns it into one of the best snacks bars you'll ever taste.

The golden California raisins add the perfect chewy sweetness to the savory bar. The Sesame Seeds give just the right amount of light crispiness and added nutrition. 

Qu├ębec Cranberry Carnival:

Contains: Peanuts*, raisins*, agave nectar*, sesame seeds*, almonds*, cranberries* (cranberries*, apple juice concentrate*, sunflower oil*), pumpkin seeds*, brown rice syrup*, whole grain brown rice crisps*, cranberry flavour*.
*Certified Organic

This is a wonderful flavor. The fruit, seeds and nuts all fit together perfectly, and the Agave adds the perfect sweetness to the whole bar that ties it all together.

Canadian Maple Forest:

Contains: Pecans*, apricots*, Brazil nuts*, agave nectar*, brown rice syrup*, raisins*, whole grain brown rice crisps*, maple syrup*, maple flavour*, vanilla flavour*, sea salt.
*Certified Organic

The apricots in this bar set it apart from all the others, that along with the maple, Brazil nuts and sea salt make this bar very special.

Perfect for adults as well as children, and an apricot lovers dream. 

All of these bars are fantastic, from texture to flavor to nutrition to hunger fighting(keeping you full). These may just be the best snack bars I've ever tried. I wish I could recommend one flavor to buy, but they are all so good I cannot choose. Especially with more varieties available on their website.

One lucky winner however will get a box(12 count) of  the Persian Pomegranate Garden flavor. Just enter below for your chance to win. Good Luck.
