My Review & Ratings - 5.0 out of 5 - This OFB is a really delicious bar! Yum…this bar truly does taste like a Chocolate Coconut Macaroon cookie! It has sweetness and richness of the chocolate, and the exotic nature of the coconuts. As well, it has a deep buttery taste of the Macaroon cookies. Organic Food Bar was brilliant in making this bar. Chocolate-lovers…and coconut fans…this will satisfy your sweet cravings. This bar is heavenly!
The wonderful thing about this bar is that it contains the live active cultures, those that you find in yogurt. They help make our tummy digest food and beverages better and function well and boost our immune system’s to fight-off germs, bacteria and potential diseases. I love that! d final of the 4 flavors, I’ve tried and eaten. This particular bar tasted somewhat like a gourmet chocolate and coconut dreamy dessert.
Nutritionally, the ingredient list is exceptional, as all OFB’s are. The label includes an impressive list of major points – raw, cold pressed, gluten free, no refined sugars, no soy, no dairy, no peanuts, non GMO, and is 70% raw, which is great. This particular bar has a low-moderate amount of fiber with 4 grams and is moderate in protein with 8 grams. Also, what I especially appreciate is that the “Raw” line of these bars is that they are a bit lower in calories, at 210 calories, than the Original Collection line (which range between 280-330). The only “con” I can think of is that it’s not as high as I’d love it to be in protein, and it’s a bit too high in fat, with 10 grams, but I’ve eaten bars (PROBARS) with double that amount (with some as high as 22 grams), so I’m not complaining with this 10 grams here.
