I’m always looking for new healthy snacks for our family to enjoy. We eat a lot of fruit, but it’s fun to mix it up sometimes.

I received 4 Gourmet Granola Ultimate Energy Bars, one in each flavor, to review:

  1. Ultimate Berry
  2. Ultimate Cran-Orange
  3. Ultimate Mocha Fudge
  4. Ultimate Fudge Brownie

As soon as I opened the box, Zoë was begging to eat one. She first had the Ultimate Cran-Orange granola bar and it was so delicious that she immediately wanted a second one. Next she ate the Ultimate Berry granola bar and also loved it. I got a small bite of each of them and they were really good.

She wanted another one, but I told her she had to wait until the next day. When she woke up the following morning, the first thing out of her mouth was that she wanted a granola bar. She has a good memory!

Luckily I had gotten up before her that morning and ate the Ultimate Mocha Fudge granola bar (sneaky Mommy), which was also good. So she got to eat the final flavor, Ultimate Fudge Brownie. She was not happy that there weren’t any more… she started begging me to go to the store to buy some more!

If you’re curious about the nutritional content:

  • 100% Natural
  • No Wheat
  • No Dairy
  • Kosher
  • Vegan
  • Non-GMO
  • Very Low Sodium (15-35mg)
  • No Refined Sugar
    (This is one point where I disagree—the bars are sweetened with agave nectar, which is not as natural as it’s made out to be. Read my thoughts here and another great article on agave nectar here).
  • 10-13g Whole Grains
  • 391-590 mg Omega-3′s
  • Handmade in California

You can purchase Ultimate Granola Gourmet Energy Bars on Amazon.com in packs of 10 of each flavor:

  1. Ultimate Berry
  2. Ultimate Cran-Orange
  3. Ultimate Mocha Fudge
  4. Ultimate Fudge Brownie

The only thing keeping me from ordering some more myself is that they’re sweetened with agave nectar. If that doesn’t bother you, check out Granola Gourmet Energy Bars.
