Doing You WELL Wednesday (Product Review)

Hello my victorious readers! 
 
Today, I will share a review of a snack bar that I received in my July Conscious Box.  Conscious Box is a monthly subscription box ($19.95) of eco-friendly products.

This is what Conscious Box had to say about the nutrition bar:

Apples, cinnamon, organic gluten-free oats - oh my! Skout's Organic Apple and Cinnamon Trailbar is packed with health-boosting benefits alongside a deliciously natural yet oh-so-satisfying taste. Free of soy, dairy, refined sugars, and other artificial fillers, Skout makes it easy to pack healthy, fulfilling snacks, whether you're heading to the office, the gym, or the trail!






My review:

The Skout Bar is made with all organic ingredients. It is perfect as a lite meal or snack - very filling on an empty stomach. It satisfies the sweet craving. However, unlike other candy, cookies or other sugary sweets, it is sweetened with organic agave nectar and dates. And, did I mention? There are no unnatural preservatives on the ingredient list!
 
It is the perfect accompaniment for a fresh brewed cup of coffee (I enjoyed my bar for breakfast.  I ate it on a day when I had to do breakfast on the run!) 

Will I purchase this product?
If I could buy it locally, I would -depending on price. I checked with my local healthy market, and they don't carry it. I try to keep a snack bar in my bag, especially if I know that I will be away from home. It curbs the urge to impulsively buy unhealthy snacks due to hunger. My favorite bar to carry is Pure .


Have you tried the Skout Bar? If so, did you like it? What nutrition bars have you tried?

  4. I don't eat bars, but if you do, this sounds like a perfect option. I would prefer to have an apple or other piece of fruit. Your blog looks fantastic!!!

  9. I used to do bars but cut them out when I realized what some of the ingredients were, but this one looks pretty good. The price point would have to be competitive with my regular fruits and nuts that I use as snacks, however.

  10. I truly understand, Alison. There is nothing more nutritious than whole fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Having a bar , for me, is about convenience, and it curbs that desire to pick up a candy bar. Have a great weekend!
