I am headed up to Maine this morning for a fun girls weekend on the lake! While I am away, I wanted to leave you with a product review. Enjoy!
I received a very generous sampling from Divine Foods a few months ago and have been working my way through their line of Prana and Boomi bars.
I was sent their line of Prana Bars, Super Charger Prana Bars and Boomi Bars to try out.
[Disclaimer: I did receive these products for free, however, the review is my honest opinion. If I did not like the products, I would tell you! I only accept samples of items that I know I will like and that fit into my eating plan.]
All of their bars are made with organic, simple, easy to pronounce ingredients, which excites me right away. For example, the Pear Ginseng Prana Bar contains the following ingredients: Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Date Paste, Organic Almond Butter, Organic Almonds, Organic Pears, Organic Sesame Seeds, Organic Puffed Amaranth, Organic Ginseng, Sea Salt.
Not too shabby!
Prana Bars have a very smooth texture. Like Larabars, they are made from a base of dates, but they also contain puffed amaranth, which gives it a different (and great!) texture from a Larabar.
My favorites are below. I really enjoyed these bars. The flavors are so interesting and they all really worked together! I was very impressed.
Super Charger Prana Bars have the same texture as the Prana bars (above), but contain some ‘superfoods’, such as goji berries and maca, which make them super! I loved all 4 of these flavors and really cannot decide which I liked best, although the Blueberry Coconut was awesome!
Boomi Bars were my favorite of all of the bars due to the texture. They were chunkier than the Prana bars which I enjoyed. I like chunks of nuts and fruit throughout, which these definitely had. In addition to the amaranth, these bars also contain crisp rice which definitely makes the texture. Normally, I try to stay away from white rice, but in a product like this that I am not going to eat every single day, it is okay with me. Plus, it makes the bar!
I had a really hard time deciding on favorites because tha majority of flavors were great!
Overall, I really liked all of the Prana and Boomi Bars that I tried. I would definitely buy these products when I was in need of a snack and would use them as just that – a snack. Their website says that they can be used as meal replacements, but I don’t agree. They don’t have nearly enough fat, calories or protein for a meal.
