Honest Food Bars (Product Review)

Note: Thank you to Honest Foods for sending me the following bars to sample.

The Honest Foods Difference (From their website)

From the moment you open the package to your very last bite, you can see, taste and smell that Honest Foods are different. Full of rich flavors and amazing aromas, with lots of whole nuts, fruit and other goodies that you can actually see, Honest Foods are a feast for the senses.

What's the difference? For starters, we believe in the nourishment of whole foods. Not only does food taste better when you use whole ingredients, it keeps you feeling full longer. We source organic ingredients whenever possible, and most importantly, we leave them whole—we don't macerate, extrude or otherwise mush them to a pulp.

Honest foods are made in small batches and baked in real baking trays. They're minimally processed—which is why you'll sometimes notice that you'll get a big chunk of nuts on one side of your plank and a big chunk of oats on the other. We don't use spray on vitamins, or soy protein powders, we just let the ingredients be themselves.

And there you have it. The whole truth, and nothing but the truth. We hope you enjoy our foods.

Oh wow, this bar was delicious! It tasted like a cookie! No joke. Honest foods bars are great alternatives for snacks since they are easy to take on the go and they are filling. They are made with almond butter, so they are nice and moist, and not dry. The top three ingredients are oats, almond butter and peanut butter. I also like that they have big chunks of ingredients in the bars, rather than having them all blended together. I definitely recommend you try these bars.
