I was recently given the opportunity to sample some bars from New Grounds Food. The bars are called CoffeeBars, so you know they had my attention right away! If you’ve been following along for a bit, you know that I am a bar connoisseur. A couple of years back, I even did a Sweet 16, where Picky Bars edged out ProBar for the win!
There are lots of bars out there now. There are bars for every type of diet and interest. So what makes bars from New Grounds Food unique? A few things actually:
1) The company that produces the bars was founded by a couple of college students
2) Every bar is infused with a full cup of fair trade coffee
3) Every CoffeeBar is 100% organic
4) Every CoffeeBar is vegan and gluten-free
CoffeeBars come in three flavors:
Each bar is just under 200 calories, and the first ingredient is organic dates. You can’t go wrong with that!
I’ve tried all three flavors, and in my opinion, the Mocha Latte is the best, followed closely by the Coconut Mocha (sorry, Caramel Macchiato).
I am running a six-hour race on Saturday, and I plan on trying a CoffeeBar before the race and during the race. I will let you know how it goes!
In the meantime, try them out for yourselves. Through the end of August, go to the New Grounds Food website and use promo code fuelyourrace for 50% off a 12-count box of bars.
