Review & Giveaway: Barre Bars

Have you tried Barre?  Barre is a real food bar developed by two dancers.  Barre says, “made with real ingredients for real athletes.”

The box I received from Barre

Their mission stated on their website really struck me as an athlete:

“The mission of Barre is to provide exceptional nutritional fortification – inspired by these needs – for dancers and everyone else who demands clean, wholesome, nutritious and great tasting sustained energy. To accomplish this goal, Barre produces and distributes health-minded snacks and performance products specially formulated to live up to the rigors of such a demanding artist-athlete lifestyle”.

So what’s in a Barre bar?  The bars are loaded with:  agave, cocoa, cranberries, dates, flax and hemp seeds, oats, pecans, sea salt, sunflower seeds, and walnuts.  YUM!  Vegan friendly, no refined sugar and packed with Omega 3s!

Are these bars just meant for dancers?  No.  Barre bars are anyone who wants to perform their best through wholesome nutrition in a convenient package.

The Flavors:  Black Swan Chocolate Berry, Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan, and Ballerina Sprulina

After trying these bars, my favorite flavor would have to be the Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan.  I loved the cinnamon part!  The Black Swan Chocolate Berry was the first one I tried.  It took me a little to get used to the unique flavor.  Once I read all of the healthy ingredients it made me like the flavor even more.  The Ballerina Sprulina took me a little bit by surprise because it was green in color.  I shared this one with a friend and she too was taken back by the green color, but said she actually really liked the taste.
