REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: SOLSTICE BAR


Fountain of Youth blend


I was sent some bars and a bag of "Fountain of Youth" Antioxidant Blend from Solstice Bars.

PRODUCT
The bars come in a package split into 2 bars with a chocolate filling in the middle. There are 3 flavors - 1) Dark chocolate, cherry & almond, 2)Mochadamia and 3) Dark Chocolate and Peanut butter. You can guess which one was my favorite. The Dark Chocolate, Cherry and Almond (with flax, hempseeds, cherries and almond)was fantastic, the Mochadamia had espresso beans in it and was a great morning wake up, and the Chocolate/Peanut Butter (their best seller)was divine.

The bars were all similar in that they each have goji berries in them. They are made with agave syrup, belgian dark chocolate, rolled oats, and a mix of nuts, seeds, and grains. These bars were delicious. Each 1/2 bar (pictured above is one bar split into two halves) contains 150 calories (170 for the peanut butter/chocolate). It is perfect if you want to grab a snack, or eat the whole bar for a small meal.

The bars have been a favorite of President Obama and been said to keep his energy high!

The new Solstice "Fountain of Youth" Blend contains 8 antioxidant rich fruits, nut and cocoa nibs and makes a great addition to yogurt, cereal, or a baked good, or can be eaten right out of the bag. I had it with a spoon and it was fantastic.

Check out the website for a further description of the products.

COMPANY

The company sprouted from a small café in Oregon to the whole country. Reiner Bohlen and wife Stephanie wanted to share their discovery of a nutritious delicious bar. Solstice Bakery is family-owned & their bars are handmade in their Corvallis bakery.

    Well, there really isn't a location anywhere near me (Toronto). I guess the closest would eb Rochester? That's a long drive for some bars, so hopefully I'll win the giveaway. ;)
