Review and Giveaway: Element Bars Custom Bars- Ends 8/16- US Only

Element Bars.  All Natural, Customizable Energy Bars.
Element Bars are these wonderfull delicious energy bars! They are really filling and yummy :).

For my review I received 12 bars. 4 of 4 different flavors. The 4 flavors I  received were: Detox Therapy , Nuts about Health, The Cherry Dates Nuts, and the Race to Recovery.

At the Element Bar website you can actually design your own energy bar. I was messing around a little bit on the website and while designing mine I came up with this:  As you can see you can choose your own ingredints. And I know, some people like to know whats in there food (calorie wise etc) Well while your making your bar a nutrition lable is actually made during the process so you can see all the ingredients and nutrion info before you buy it!

Out of the 4 "Pre-made" flavors that I got to try I would say The Cherry Dates Nuts was my favorite. It had this really smooth texture to it, and I love that because it keeps me chewing longer (curbing hunger) It also had a really sweet taste. I honestly didn't think I would enjoy this one at all because I don't like Dates or Cherries, but the mixture tasted wonderful (all 4 of those are gone lol! :) )

Next is the Detox Therapy. Personally I did not enjoy the Detox Therapy Bar. It smelled really good, but when I tried it, it reminded me of like a pumpkin. It tasted like the smell of pumpkin pie (??)  Personally thought I hate anything pumpkin. It just grosses me out.  Aaron however enjoyed the Detox bar, he liked the grainy texture and said he would eat it again.
Then the Race to Recovery. I love love love my blueberries and this bar is packed full of them! I really enjoyed this bar and I am trying to save them for quick lunchs at work (but I don't know if they will last until I work on Monday! lol!) This bar was also really chewy and I loved that too! \
  And finally there was the Nuts about Health. I enjoyed the texture and chewiness of the bars, but honestly, it didn't have a taste. You could get a really nutty taste but it was very light and  I felt like I was eating a packing peanut, kindof weird. I am also not a huge nut fan, so that could be another reason I wasn't so attracted. And again, this has pumpkin spice in it, and that is a huge turn off for me (personally!)

 Overall I was very satisfied with Element Bars. Each bar is chopped full of wonderful ingredients! These make the perfect snack bar for anyone!
