Pure Bar Organic Wild Blueberry, Raw Fruit & Nut Bar

My first experience with the Pure Bar brand was with their Cherry bars. I wasn’t overly impressed, Neither was my family.

However, the Blueberry Bar is a much bigger hit! My 9 year old son actually said he would rather have this over a candy bar! That is pretty impressive in and of itself.

My personal impression is that there should be more blueberry in the bar. It is pretty disappointing to me that blueberry is so far down the list of ingredients. Maybe “Date and Blueberry” bar should be on the label. (Yes, I know it says “Raw Fruit and Nut Bar” on the label, but it says Blueberry first). Or perhaps “Raw Fruit and Nut Bar, with Blueberry”.

Still, not a bad snack bar. I just wish the price was more inline with other snacks for children.

Our Wild Blueberry Bar is made with dried, organic, wild blueberries from Oregon. Wild blueberries are important as they have higher ORAC (antioxidant power) values than even cultivated or conventional blueberries; in fact, higher ORAC values than most foods. They also contain nutrients like Vitamin C, potassium, iron and fiber. We specifically choose apple juice-infused (not sugar-infused) wild blueberries to avoid refined sugars.

    Dang, sounds good! I like that it’s clean. I’m going to look for it at Costco.
