As promised...my review of the Bora Bora Exotic Coconut Almond Superfood Bar.
210 calories, 14 g fat, 7 g saturated fat (unfortunately, that's what coconut does), 0 mg cholesterol, 18 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 7 g sugar, 4 g protein
Ingredient list reads all legible products in which are all organic; you know that’s a plus in my book!
Now whilst this bar hit the high note for flavor profile and had all the flavor a coconut fanatic could dream of, it was more of a treat bar than "feel great" superfood bar that they claim it to be. Got a super sweet tooth? then it's for you! Otherwise, stick to your usual power bar while I search for something to suit you not so sweet toother's ; )
You may catch me snackin' on another Bora Bora bar in the future but for now I am on the look out for the next top bar that curbs my cravings, maintains satiety and is nutritionally appealing. What does a girl have to do to find this!?
