Welcome to Day #5 of this week's Chocolate and Coconut Series.
Today's Fuel - Coconut Dream bar from Probar LLC (Park City, UT) was designed as an energy bar for active folks on the go.
I tried mine out on a walk across town, and it did the trick.
The packaging is practical and is durable enough to protect the bar from breaking open if it sinks to the bottom of a bag.
This bar had a slight coconut aroma and a very slight chemical smell to it, although the bar was made with all natural and organic ingredients. (Ingredients for this bar: date paste, coconut, cashews, almonds, semi-sweet chocolate chips, chia seeds, natural vanilla flavor and sea salt.) And the predominant flavor was dates and coconut, as one might expect, with nut bits adding some additional interest.
The texture of this compressed bar was slightly soft and chewy and the date paste held all the ingredients together nicely.
The Organic Coconut Dream energy bar was was gluten and dairy free, and vegan.
