I've been receiving a lot of new products lately and that's always fun, but the downside is that sometimes it takes me a while to get them to do a proper review. I received a complimentary sample of Amrita Energy Bars a couple of months ago, and after trying them I'm wondering why I waited so long.
The closest thing I can compare them to are Larabar energy bars. Of course, Larabar's are based on nuts, whereas Amrita bars are based on seeds. The ingredients of the Amrita are simple -- primarily seeds and fruits. Date paste is the first ingredient and the remaining fruits vary based on the flavor, as do the seeds. They are top-8 allergen-free with do contain sesame. They also carry a warning for coconut (which you all know by now isn't really a tree nut).
Updated 10/01/2015: According to a company representative, the bars are made in a facility that makes foods with nuts and gluten. Therefore, these may not be appropriate for those with nut, wheat, and gluten allergies.
With flavors like cranberry raisin, apple cinnamon, apricot strawberry, and chocolate maca, there is a flavor for every palate. Pictured above is apricot strawberry. These bars are simple, taste great, easy to share, and travel well. I now have a new bar to throw in my bar for "whenever."
