Today was Day #3 of Chocolate, Grains and Grasses Theme Week.
This package of two heart-shaped energy bars was created by The Healthy Baking Company, LLC (Emeryville, CA), and is a part of a line of heart-shaped energy bars. This was the only flavor with chocolate that I saw at the store.
These energy bars are gluten free, Non-GMO and vegan; and they contain no wheat, dairy, preservatives, cholesterol, trans fats, and/or added oils. They are "naturally sweetened" with brown rice syrup and fruit juices. They are made in a nut-free facility.
These bars contained a smattering of small chocolate chips, but the chocolate was just a mild accent flavor. The bars had a hearty texture, but there was a slight skunky, odd flavor note. I shared a piece of this bar with a friend, and she shared this observation. Otherwise, all was good, and I loved the heart shape.
