GoMacro Bars Review and {Giveaway 7/7/15}



**Disclosure: Complimentary product was received in order to bring you an accurate review and a giveaway. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.

As an active family, we are always looking for new snacks to toss in our bags on the way to an adventure. Looking for a solution with simple ingredients can be quite a challenge. Recently, I learned about GoMacro Bars which have quite a range of flavors but have very simple ingredients. So, I had to try.........




GoMacro Bars are produced by a family-owned company that focuses on supporting a natural, whole-food based lifestyle, environmental stewardship and concern for the welfare of all living beings. The bars are 100% vegan, USDA certified organic, certified Non-GMO, gluten free and kosher. They are made mainly from raw ingredients and the ingredients are easily decipherable! Often, this a challenge so definitely a plus!



The story of GoMacro Bars is truly one of family. After the family matriarch Amelia was diagnosed with cancer, the family sought healthy diet options as Amelia began converting to a macrobiotic diet. The family had long emphasized eating wholesome, locally grown foods and the family owned a farm in Wisconsin where the family could grow their own food. Already on their way, their journey continued. The development of GoMacro Bars grew from their exploration of healthy, natural foods.

Eager to try GoMacro Bars as a snack alternative during our hikes, we brought them to visit a waterfall in Waterfall Glen near Lemont and Darien, Illinois!


The Taste Test:

Surprisingly, GoMacro has been able to craft 11 different flavors--all into the trappings of compact bars that easily can be stowed in any shape or size of bag. One thing that I immediately noticed about GoMacro Bars is that if I got a little hungry on my hike, I didn't necessarily need an entire bar to satiate me. On various trips, I noticed I only needed half of a bar to hold me over until a meal. Truly the type of snack you need when traveling!

Sesame Butter + Date GoMacro Bar
GoMacro Bars are soft and chewy which may have a hand in why I feel so satiated after eating one! Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip was an automatic favorite flavor as were Cherries + Berries, Cashew Caramel and Almond Butter + Carob. I really love that the fruit containing bars such as Cherries + Berries and Sesame Butter + Date have such noticeable chunks of fruit. The quality ingredients do show and it is refreshing to find bars that are not dry.

A rainbow of flavor.
The rainbow of flavors include:
  • Peanut Butter
  • Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chip
  • Banana + Almond Butter
  • Sunflower Butter + Chocolate
  • Cashew Butter
  • Almond Butter + Carob
  • Granola + Coconut
  • Sesame Butter + Date
  • Cherries + Berries
  • Cashew Caramel
  • Apples + Walnut
