Product Review

As promised...my review of the Bora Bora Exotic Coconut Almond Superfood Bar.

They arn't lying when they say coconut! I am a huge coconut fan but this coconut flavor overpowers all. I bought this bar because its packaging was so appealing. Mentioning all natural, gluten free, no refined sugars, superfood, non-GMO and kosher. Quite pleasing for all, wouldn't you agree? In addition to the great claims, a USDA Organic seal compliments the exotic themed packaging.


Nutritional low down:
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!?


Head's up Local Foodies:

  1. Speaking of coconut food bars. I had an awesome one the other day. GREAT tasting and I love coconut. I found these KIND Fruit + Nut bars at the grocery store. Nutrition facts look pretty good too but i'm not the expert. Check them out if you find them in your area.
