Pure Bars are the best snack bar ever! Raw. Vegan. Gluten-Free.

picture of Pure Bars are Organic. Raw. Vegan. Gluten-Free. Delicious!

I have been trying to get away from processed foods.  I want to provide my family with healthy meals that not only taste good today but will benefit their development and choices in the future. We are eating more whole foods and I feel good about it. One thing I haven’t dived into until now is snack food. I learned about The Pure Bar recently because of an incredible contest they are holding. I’m so glad they got my attention because the Pure Bars are even more amazing than the contest (although I wouldn’t mind winning a trip to Costa Rica).

The Pure Bar Review

Pure Bar offers certified-organic snacks that are a natural, healthy choice. Pure Bars are gluten-free, raw, vegan, and vegetarian. Pure Bars contain omega-3s, low sodium, 4 g organic fiber, healthy antioxidants, and 1.5 servings of fruit. Pure Bars do NOT contain refined sugar, no artifical ingredients, no preservatives, no transfats, no cholesterol, no dairy, no gluten or soy, and no GMOs.

We are gradually going toward organic, all natural foods but it is a slow process. I admit that my husband and I were skeptical when we read the ingredients on the Pure Bars that we were sent. How good can a snack bar be with NO sugar? Seriously. With the right combination of fruits and nuts, it can be even better! Let me tell you that we were blown away with how incredible Pure Bars taste! Forget how healthy they are. Forget that I can read and understand every ingredient on the package. They taste marvelous!

We liked every single Pure Bar we tasted. Each was true to the flavors on the package. Lots and lots of flavor with the right amount of chewiness and perfect mix of fruits and nuts. Our #1 favorite was the chocolate brownie. It is the best, fudgiest dark chocolate brownie we’ve ever had. And by far it was the healthiest!

Okay, so let’s not actually forget how healthy Pure Bars are. I love how they list their ingredients on the front of the package because they have nothing to hide! After listing out the ingredients, the package reads “and that’s all!” Don’t you just love it!? You’d expect something at the end that you can’t understand or sugar or something! With Pure Bars, you can have delicious, sweet snacks that are healthy too.

Win a Trip to Costa Rica from The Pure Bar

Set in 1000 private acres of rainforest, Lapa Rios overlooks the gorgeous wild Pacific Ocean. Hike through the rainforest with staff naturalists; you can hang 10 in the surf, kayak into the sunset or marine watch via ocean mangrove boats. Relax with yoga, massage, or in a hammock overlooking the heavenly beaches.

    I learned that the Pure Bars are gluten free, kosher, organic, vegan, and raw. Something for anyone’s palate.

  3. Kendra says:

    they teamed up with the Celiac Disease Foundation. We make a gluten-free snack, so we thought it was important to promote healthy, delicious dietary choices by supporting an organization that aids people who struggle with gluten intolerance. This is great and thanks for the chance

  4. Joanne Schultz says:

    I learned that their products are available in our Mother Earth store in Poughkeepsie NY !

  7. Justine says:

    I checked out the Pure bar site and I learned that they care about the environment, and they plant a tree every time a customer buys 3 pure bars!

  8. christa says:

    I love that there are NO additives of any kind! The world needs to get rid of high fructose corn syrup, which is in most bars like this…

  9. jamie anderson says:

    I can’t believe that a healthy bar is so much healthier then the rest and still tastes good. Good food can taste good.

  10. Emily says:

    I love these – found them when I was in Michigan (they originated in Holland MI) – they are gluten free as well – and fantastic!

  11. Emmy says:

    Pure Bars are made from fruits and nuts wrought by nature, and they don’t like to strip them of their essence before they get to our mouths
    That means that all of their bars are cold-processed and made with whole, simple, organic ingredients, resulting in a higher nutrient density and fewer toxins than in cooked alternatives.

  12. Erin E says:

    Pure Bars are still made to give people the same great, uncompromising nutrients our customers crave.

  16. Nancy Meyer says:

    I learned that they, “choose certified organic fruits and nuts that have never taken a shower in any herbicides or pesticides.” Love it!

    Okay so I finally get an explanation for ‘raw’: That means that all of our bars are cold-processed and made with whole, simple, organic ingredients, resulting in a higher nutrient density and fewer toxins than in cooked alternatives.

  18. Jordan says:

    I learned that these have five grams of organic fiber and seven grams of organic protein, they sound like a really good snack!

  19. Kimberly Ahlstrom says:

    like pure bars on FB
    I learned that it was a mom who created pure bars in her kitchen for her 6yr old daughter who was a vegetarian.

  20. Lentil says:

    I’ve always been intimidated by a raw diet, it seems it would be so difficult to sustain.But I read this on the Pure website: “Choosing raw doesn’t mean you have to adhere to some freakish diet plan where you only eat grass and drink water. Making the decision to eat unprocessed foods, even only once a day, can help you to consume the vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants that your body needs. Even small choices can make a big impact”. I like the idea that you don’t have to have an entirely raw diet to get some benefits!

  21. miriam says:

    i’ve learned that a sugar free snack bars taste marvelous!! didin’t think that before! hope to win these vegan bars now! finger crossed!!

  22. Suzanne K says:

    After a visit to a zoo when her daughter was 6, her daughter decided to become a vegetarian and that was the start of the adventure that ended up making these great, healthy foods!

  23. Cindy says:

    Hi Susan, You did the 1st entry right, just had to tell me something you learned from the Pure Bar website. I will email you with hints on how to do the extra entries too. I’m coming up with a tutorial to post later to help people too. I don’t want it to be confusing, just give you chances to enter to win. 🙂

  24. Susan Payton says:

    Blogging around and found your blog. I am trying to learn how to enter give aways. It gets complicated sometimes they all have different requirements. So I hope I am doing this right. Since I am a vegatarian, I had to try to enter this one. I went to the pure bar website and what I learned and found interesting is that they lower the ingestion of toxins. That is so imporant.
    Thank you for letting me enter and visit.

  25. diane r. says:

    I got carried away on the website….I learned what a great website the Pure Bar has, and that there are many facinating recipes to try that are vegetarian!
    My middle daughter is studying health and nutrition in college and has been a vegetarian for several years now and I plan on keeping this site bookmarked so that I can visit it frequently.
    Would love to win these bars for my daughter, Holly, who is always looking for healthy snacks to grab on the way to her classes.

  26. Linda Lansford says:

    Pure Bars are made from certified organic ingredients and are gluten-free, vegan, raw, kosher, and entirely delicious.

  27. Michelle L says:

    I learned that by consuming raw foods even once a day you get more of the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs,

  28. Melissa says:

    I learned that they launced the “Buy-3/Plant-a-Tree effort”, where they plant one tree every time a customer buys three Pure Bars. What a great policy!

  29. Diane R. says:

    I found out that Trader Joe’s is the main retail store that offers these bars. It’s also my main grocery store How could I have overlooked these bars. I’m going to have to check them out.

  30. Leanne says:

    I learned that I want to go to Costa Rica. That photo was beautiful! Oh, and I’d like to taste these bars also. 🙂

  31. tori smith/fourtynine morgan says:
