When R.e.d.d. Bar contacted me about trying out their products I felt the timing could not be more perfect. I had recently upped my workout game and my schedule is busy with summer bustle and hustle. When I am on the go I usually settle for a Kind bar but it doesn't curb my appetite and I usually and hungry again an hour later. Having a product that you can take on the go, keep in your car or purse and gives you energy is perfect.
What I love about this product:
-They are a local Portland based company. Recently moving for Portland ME to Portland OR. I love supporting my local Portland brands and businesses.
-They are walnut free! This is more personal but I am allergic to walnuts and a lot of plant based bars contain them.
- They have protein. 9 grams-10 grams! This helps keep me feeling full for longer and avoiding that crash I get around 3 pm.
-They are soy free. I actually include a bit of soy into my coffee each day but try to avoid it most other times. I found a lot of the bras I liked in the past were PACKED with soy. No bueno.
-They have a great texture. I am definitely a texture girl, but not the way you would think. I hate those chalky bars and bars that taste like I am chewing on a giant raisin. These bars are moist with the perfect amount of chew. Not too much and not too little.
-They have natural caffeine in them! This is probably why I feel so energized after I have a bar without the shakes.
My favorite flavor was the chocolate but if you loooove peanut butter then the peanut butter one is for you.
