Bora Bora Bars (Product Review)

Note: Thanks to Bora Bora Foods for sending me a bunch of bars to sample, as well as my very own t shirt and mug!

Bora Bora's bars are all natural, organic, contain no refined sugar, are gluten free, non gmo, vegan and kosher... can it get any better than this? Any they are very delicious!

The bars are separated into three different categories:

- Antioxidant: flavors include: tiki blueberry flax, paradise walnut pistachio and pacific mango macadamia

- Superfood: flavors include: exotic coconut almond, tropical sesame cranberry, wild pomegranate pecan and native acai walnut.

- Energy: flavors include: island brazil nut almond, tribal cinnamon oatmeal, and volcanic chocolate banana

Island brazil nut almond- this was the first flavor I have sampled.
Website description: Meaty Brazil nuts, toasted sunflower seeds and crunchy almonds. It’s an energy and taste boost.

Benefits:
Brazil Nuts may aid in the release of energy from food and help support the immune system.
Sunflower Seeds are packed with healthy fats, protein, fiber, minerals, and phytochemicals. Studies have shown that they may promote healthy cholesterol levels.
Almonds have been shown to promote healthy cholesterol levels and are rich in antioxidants.

Select Ingredients
Organic Raisins, Organic Peanuts, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Brazil Nuts, Organic Almonds, Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Walnuts, Organic Whole Grain Crisp Rice, Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Organic Sunflower Oil (Organic Sunflower Oil, Natural Tocopherol, Organic Rosemary Extract).

One bar has 200 calories, 12 grams fat, no trans fats(!), 18 grams carbs, 10 grams sugar and 5 grams protein. I highly recommend you try this bar. Since it's full of nuts and seeds, it kept me full.
