Product Review: Agave-Sweetened Bumble Bars

Posted Jan 27 2009 6:22pm

BumbleBar is such a cool company. They use only organic ingredients, and more than 70% of those ingredients come from worker-owned cooperatives. Not only that, but their bars are very tasty.

Recently, the 13-year-old company added four new agave-sweetened bars to their collection: Awesome Apricot, Chunky Cherry, Tasty Tropical, and Cherry Chocolate.

Since chocolate is on my no-eat list, I just tried the apricot, cherry, and tropical flavors. When I opened the first package, I noted that the bar is pretty flat. Also, it tends to bend pretty easily, so it's handy for pulling off small bits at a time.

All of the bars are pretty seedy -- and by that I mean that they have plenty of sesame seeds. They're also a bit on the sweet side (for me, so I just had a small portion at a time) and quite sticky from the agave nectar. Keep that in mind for car eating. You might want to put a couple of wet naps in your glove compartment.

Overall, I really enjoyed the flavors and the seediness of the bars. They also tasted so fresh. It was nice to try a new choice for a healthy, organic energy bar, especially from family-run, ethical company.
