I’ve been doing fewer and fewer product reviews, but sometimes I come across something, or something comes across my inbox and I’ve just got to try it – and subsequently – share it with you all!
I’m definitely a savory/salty snacker and when the afternoon rolls around, its not sweets that I’m craving. Truthfully, I usually want cheese but I definitely don’t bring cheese to work with me. (That would NOT be a good idea). Ideally I’ll have something a little salty and hopefully crunchy.
Journey Bars are essentially a savory “granola/nutrition” bar with flavors like Coconut Curry, Pizza Marinara, Rosemary, Parmesan Romano and Hickory BBQ. They are made with grains like oats, buckwheat, flax, amaranth, and definitely fit the bill for a delicious, crunchy, savory and healthy afternoon snack.
- made with whole grains
- simple ingredient list
- savory flavor without too much salt
- nutrition stats: 200 calories, 8 grams fat, 4 grams fiber, 6 grams protein
- no GMO’s (genetically modified organisms)
- there was a bit more protein in them, although I know that would affect the flavor/taste (in a perfect world!)
- they were in thinner pieces (I guess more like crackers) but I guess that defeats the purpose of a “bar”
