Pure Bar Organic Cherry Cashew, Raw Fruit & Nut Bar

My family takes a lot of fruit and granola bars for snacks. My husband is a teacher and carries a couple in his briefcase for when he needs a quick pick me up and both kids take one for a morning snack. We all like chewy bars so this seemed right up our alley.

The flavor was pretty good. If you are looking for a chewy snack though, this might not be your thing. The fruit bits were chewy enough but the rest of the bar was like a soft cookie.

What turns me off entirely to this product is the price. Amazon currently has it list for $17.60 for a box of 12. But the normal price is listed as $30. That is what I would expect to pay for a power bar that is about twice the size of this healthy snack.

I’m afraid my family is going to be staying with standard granola bars for now. While they may not boast all the nutrition of Pure Bar Organic snacks they are a lot more affordable when you are going through 12 of them a week (about $5 versus the $17.60).

Description:
Our Cherry Cashew Bar contains dried, unsweetened, organic tart cherries. Cherries are undoubtedly one of the most antioxidant-rich foods, with powerful phytonutrients and a good dose of Vitamin C, to promote healthy aging and a strong immune system. We choose extremely high quality tart Oregon cherries with excellent flavor that are not sugar-infused (like many), but are carefully dried in their natural state.
