Pure Bar Organic Wild Blueberry, Raw Fruit & Nut Bar, 1.7-Ounce Bars
Grocery & Gourmet Food
Our Wild Blueberry Bar is made with dried, organic, wild blueberries from Oregon. Wild blueberries are important as they have higher ORAC (antioxidant power) values than even cultivated or conventional blueberries; in fact, higher ORAC values than most … see full wiki
My first experience with the Pure Bar brand was with their Cherry bars. I wasn't overly impressed, Neither was my family. However, the Blueberry Bar is a much bigger hit! My 9 year old son actually said he would rather have this over a candy bar! That is pretty impressive in and of itself. My personal impression is that there should be more blueberry in the bar. It is pretty disappointing to me that blueberry is so far down the list of ingredients. Maybe … more
Unlike most all-natural foods that, in my opinion, tend to taste like tree bark, this one was not at all bad. However, since I tend to like bars for bigger servings of fiber vs servings of fruit and vegetables (I eat plenty of that stuff in fresh form) I still can't buy these over my favorite - Fiber One bars. That said, for what this product IS - and since most people don't eat nearly enough fruit in their diets - I liked it and would buy it again.
As these bars are made without most of the bad stuff in others, they taste rather different. Not bad, just different. Noticeably less sweet, and without the artificial binders, they also feel different in terms of texture. It would take some getting used to, doing without all that sugary flavor, but the blueberry bar tasted just fine.
I've tried a number of this sort of thing and Pure ranks amongst the top. There is a rich blueberry taste totally unlike all the synthetic flavoring we find in heavily processed foods these days. It's basically just fruit and nuts, but the nuts aren't chunky or crunchy. The texture is soft and slightly moist, kind of like a dense cake. Above all, it tastes really great without a lot of added sugar. The natural flavor of the blueberries really comes through. If you're looking … more
You hear raw organic, all natural, and you start to think "this is probably going to taste like drywall." These bars, I'm pleased to report, taste a lot better than that. In fact, they taste so good I'm not sure I believe the ingredients list. My only, very minor, complaint is that there isn't all that much blueberry flavor. This makes sense, given that blueberries are rather low on the ingredients list, and nuts are at the top. (Why is it that the front of a package usually lists the ingredients … more
Foolishly, I ate about a third of this bar before looking at the ingredients. I really liked the taste--but realized too late that it contains dates... and I am mildly allergic. I can honestly say my raccoons enjoyed the rest of the bar. If you don't have food allergies, this is truly a great bar in terms of being low fat, high protein. And tasty.
The Pure organic bar is lacking in flavor but it is a good substitute for a meal if you are in a hurry or in need of a snack. It's moist and not crumbly like granola bars and while the flavor is bland, at least it doesn't taste awful like so many other energy bars. I am not a nutritionist nor do I go out of my way to eat healthy, but that this bar is certified organic and has a lot of natural products in it which is a plus. For energy bar, it'll do.
This bar would be its offspring. This was the first thought that came to mind while eating the Pure Organic Wild Blueberry bar. As a new mom, I'm often left 'snacking' my meals away throughout the day. This usually means a lot of food in 'bar' form. While I did think this bar tasted all right, I wasn't in love with it. I must have eaten a million Blueberry Crisp Cliff bars when I was in my first trimester because I literally couldn't … more
I recently tried the Pure Bar Organic Cherry Cashew, Raw Fruit & Nut Bar, 1.7-Ounce Bars (Pack of 12) and didn't like them at all so I didn't get my hopes up for this flavor. However to my disbelief, I actually enjoyed the wild blueberry bars. It was a totally different experience for me. The mixture of fresh blueberry and nuts makes a great combination. I let my kids try a bite and then went on and on about how much they liked them. These bars are 100% natural without any added preservatives or … more
I had the opportunity to try both the cherry cashew and the wild blueberry flavors. This flavor gets an extra star for the taste. While I still feel that those enjoying a raw food lifestyle would be better off making their own snack bars...this flavor might find its way into my shopping basket on a regular basis. Here is my reveiw fromt the cherry cashew flavor: I love that this bar is made from raw foods!! I've been trying to … more
This is a great-tasting bar. Wildberries are very sweet, but not too sweet. It has 190 calories and nutritional content similar to Zone bars. However, I felt a bit more full while chewing on a Zone Bar. Oddly enough I think its because Zone bars require more chewing and Pure Bars are very soft and delicate and you can finish them rather quickly. Obviously the more chewing you do, the longer it takes you to finish the bar and by the time you ate one, your brain already told your stomach that it has … more
I know it often takes some time for changed to be incorporated on product descriptions here, even after companies have submitted them, so I'm hopeful that it's just an unintentional lag. The current label has different ingredients and claims from the product description. Here's what it says: Certified Organic Ingredients: Organic dates, organic cashews, organic walnuts, organic rice protein concentrate, organic wild blueberries (with organic apple juice concentrate and organic … more
I am always on the hunt for something that I can keep with me or use as a breakfast-type item...I am just not a person likes to sit down and eat a full breakfast. So, when I got the chance to try the Wild Blueberry flavor of the PURE Organic Raw Fruit & Nut Bar, I figured I may as well. I have tasted some absolutely hideous bars, and I have had some that I quite enjoy. This was sort of in the middle - the flavor was a bit on the bland side, though certainly not horrid. There … more
The Pure Wild Blueberry raw fruit and nut bar is made of fruit (dates, blueberries) and nuts (cashews, walnuts and almonds) and is certified organic with additional organic ingredients. One bar is 190 calories, (70 from fat) and a notable 6 gr protein and 3 gr of fiber. The Pure Bar is very similar in texture to a Larabar (which is a less chewy, denser type of fruit leather) with bigger chunks of nuts (compared to the Larabars I've tried.) The Pure Wild Blueberry bar's blueberry flavor burst out … more
This is a really great tasting raw food bar... filled with nuts, dates, and fruit, the Pure bar has a nice texture (not crumbly) and an enjoyable taste. Pure bars will be right up there with Larabars as raw organic food bars that taste great, come in a variety of flavors, and bring whole food nourishment. The only noticeable caveat for those who are supersensitive with foods is that these are processed in a facility that also makes non-vegan food products.
If you need a healthy meal you can carry conveniently, these bars are a very good choice. The ingredients are all organic real foods: "Organic Dates, Organic Cashews, Organic Walnuts, Organic Rice Protein, Organic Wild Blueberries, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Almonds, Organic Lemon Juice concentrate, Organic Blueberry flavor." They claim "nothing cooked, nothing processed". This is a refreshing change from our world of modern processed foods. And yet … more
I've had a variety of fruit bars over the years and this is definitely one of the worst. It doesn't have a great deal in the way of good flavor and it's over burdened with cashews and walnuts (neither of which I like). The labeling makes great hey out of the fact that it's not got gluten, doesn't use GMO's, has no cholesterol, no trans-fats, and that the blueberries used therein are raw. Because, you know, mankind was doing fine before we actually started cooking our foods. Beyond … more
I was a bit hesitant when I unwrapped the bar since, at first glance, it doesn't look all that appetizing. Just a dark slab that doesn't inspire much confidence. But, one bite and I was sold - this tastes great! Very fresh, sweet but not cloying, soft and chewy with the nuts adding some crunch. Perfect mid day or late day snack. My only small complaint is that the bar is sticky to the touch, which can make it a bit messy if you're eating it on the go and don't have a napkin … more
