Raspberry and Chocolate Raw Revolution bar
This was the first Raw Revolution bar I tried, and it didn’t disappoint. I am a big fan of chocolate with raspberries, strawberries, or cherries, so this bar was up my alley. The aroma was similar to most dried fruit and nut bars, with a hint of cocoa. When I tasted it I noticed the strong raspberry flavor first. It slightly overpowers the chocolate but tastes good. The cocoa cut the sweetness and made it much richer, but it tasted more like cocoa than chocolate. The bar looked like a giant fruit leather studded with nuts, and was one of the large, more substantial raw food bars I’ve eaten.
If you are looking to include more raw foods in your diet, this bar could help you achieve that with 90% raw ingredients. The nutrition facts were phenomenal. It’s a little heavy in calories, but sometimes the smaller bars need to be supplemented with a piece of fruit anyway to be more filling. Containing 4 grams of fiber, 15 grams of fat, and 8 grams of protein, Raw Revolution makes a great balanced breakfast in a pinch.
For comparison’s sake, it has about the same macros as an English muffin with 1 ½ tbsp peanut butter. (270 calories, 14 grams of fat, 2.5 grams of fiber, and 9.5 grams of protein). The English muffin breakfast has none of the iron or vitamin c, and takes much longer to make when you wake up at 7:59 for an 8:00 appointment!
On the website, this 2.2 oz bar costs $1.99, but at my local health food stores I couldn’t find it cheaper than $2.50.
