I recently was contacted by Rise Bar to try out their different bars. Now, I really am not a huge bar person to be completely honest. A lot of bars are used as meal replacements and it’s just not enough food for me. I also don’t feel like it’s healthy to have just a bar for a meal either. So those feelings aside, I’m always pretty wary of trying bars. A lot of them also are just a ton of calories for what you’re actually getting. When the Rise bars arrived I was apprehensive. The bars seemed to be a much different consistency than I was used to and also very natural, which sometimes can lead to weird flavors. The moral of the story is that I need to be more adventurous and try new things because these bars are my new ADDICTION. I cannot get enough! I was so surprised how light the bars were and how tasty they were. Instead of being a bar that is a ‘meal replacement’ option, they are a great addition to my morning coffee, or post workout on-the-go snack. They’re great with my lunch and I don’t feel like they are such rich flavors like chocolate mocha swirl. My favorite flavor was the pineapple macadamia , but all of them are really unique flavors , which I love. Another one I love is the Almond Honey Protein bar after a long run when I’m STARVING and it’s not exactly full meal time. A few of them also have the chia seeds in the bar too, which added quite a good crunch as well, which much to my dismay means that B likes them and they start disappearing rather quickly.
Needless to say, I’m hooked and so thankful that they sell these bars at my local Sprouts! It’s your lucky day too because Rise Bars has also generously offered to giveaway a variety pack of bars to someone as well. To enter, just pick a few of the options below!
