I tried a Keep Healthy Apricot coconut bar and it was delicious! It had all natural ingredients and was affordable. No I am not getting any benefit to saying this, just sharing something that I found that you might like.
One of the things I really liked about this is that most bars pair it with chocolate. Certainly delicious and good, but having it stand on its own allows you to further appreciate the coconut flavor. I tried one of the other flavors the Date Pecan and it was good, but I like the coconut best.
Unfortunately this isn’t a really common bar and I wasn’t able to find it at Whole Foods. When I asked for it, they said it had to go through a process to get it approved. I said I would buy a case every week if they had it.
I have tried many bars and gotten burnt out on them. It was on a whim that I tried this and really liked it. It was genius to pair these flavors together.
Ok, so its obvious I like it. What is the downside of this? I didn’t have any downside. That is part of the reason that I like it. With other bars you sometimes get an upset stomach hours later while you are digesting it. Oh and don’t make the mistake of eating two Luna bars at once like I did. Experiment as your own risk.
I guess the only improvement I could ask for is in the packaging. If it had biodegradable packaging like that Algae thing I wrote about before it would be cool. It is probably hard keeping things free with natural materials like that. Perhaps one day packaging science will evolve to be worthy of these natural bars.
I like the fact that since they are in NY and I am in the NY area it is locally sourced. It would be neat if areas could grow their food needs locally, but that day will probably never come. Till then we can do our part to eat local foods.
