Product Review: Weil Chocolada Walnut Bar

I have been on a bar kick lately.  I am training to run a half marathon in October and have been trying to find a bar that agrees with me that has decent nutritional stats too.  That isn’t always easy.  On top of gluten, I really can’t do seeds (like sesame seeds).  I really liked the Boomi bars, but the seeds and I just can’t get along.  Also, sometimes I have issues with fruit.  So, on top of reviewing these bars for taste/texture, I am seeing how my body does with them.  I won’t bore you or gross you out with the latter details.  ;)  I just want to make sure that if I am bringing a bar along on a long run that it won’t be causing me grief before I am done, if you know what I mean. 

These bars, made by Nature’s Path, were very good.  Very close to Lara Bar.  The first thing I noticed on my first bite was a strong taste of vanilla, which is odd because it is the last ingredient on the list.  I didn’t notice it after the first bite.  This bar has great texture and nice chunks of nuts.  I was very satisfied by this bar and it held me overly nicely to lunch (about 3 hours).

Made with love and …

Organic dates, organic almonds, organic dried unsweetened coconut, organic walnuts, organic natural cocoa, organic vanilla extract.

Simple & gluten free.  Also vegan!  I would like to see a little more protein in the bar, but without dairy or soy, that is hard to do.  I prefer to stay away from soy (doesn’t always agree with me) and dairy while exercising as I am lactose intolerant. 

I think that these would be great to take along on a long run.  I am excited to give some of the other flavors a try!
