taste of nature bars

That moment when you go from “kind of hungry” to “raving hangry lunatic”?

Been there.

Specifically, between the hours of 11AM and noon every day.

Consider yourself forewarned.

It’s just that it’s this weird witching hour that is too late for breakfast, but too early for lunch, and yet still requires food. That’s where these Taste of Nature bars come in.

Previous to discovering them, my desk at lab was a danger zone during this hour because you never knew what kind of mood I would be in or, more specifically, what I would throw at you. Now I can be an even-keeled reasonable person all morning long!

At the least, I will not fling a stapler at your head. So that is a vast improvement.

Because I am not the kind of person who can keep a good thing to herself, I toted these along to the.boy’s family’s barbecue a few weekends ago and passed them around after a grueling and hunger-inducing game of ping pong.

Now, if there is one thing I know about the.boy’s family, it is that they are not the kind of people you can sneak healthy ingredients by. They know. They always know.

But even though these bars just so happen to be certified organic, gluten-free certified, non-gmo project verified, and made exclusively from real foods like nuts, fruits, and grains…they got two thumbs up! Not an easy feat. But definitely a testament to just how tasty they are.

Taste of Nature bars come in all kinds of scrumptious flavors, like Brazilian Nut Festival, California Almond Valley, Quebec Cranberry Carnival, Canadian Maple Forest (<–my personal favorite!), Himalayan Goji Summit, and Persian Pomegranate Garden. You can check out where to buy them near you using their store locator, but they are general available in most natural product stores and grocery retailers. I am lucky enough that a store just a block and a half from where I live – A Matter of Health – sells them!

So I can stock up whenever I want.

Dangerous but delicious. That’s just how I roll.

So if you’re into snacking, but want to do it a bit more healthfully and naturally, these are definitely a bar worth trying!

And whatever you do, keep yourself from entering “raving hangry lunatic” mode. Throwing office equipment never benefits anyone. Ever.

  15. Reeni says:

    These sound yummy! The maple one would probably be my fave too or the cranberry.

  16. the problem with being hungry at 11 is I make bad choices at noon ! like a bag of chips that starts to call my name before I can get to the salad bar. I have yet to throw things at people though… but the instinct is there! lol..
    these bars sound really good..

  17. sandra says:

    I eat these all the time – my son loves them…

  18. I have had these bars before, and can definitely attest to their tastiness 😉

  20. We love these bars and buy them often! Great video of the game, and the pool looks so soothing with this heat wave we’re having. Glad you got to cool off! Have a great day!

  21. bellini says:

    I love these made in Canada snacks. They seem to be lined up at the cash register where you would normally find candy bars, etc. A much better alternative.

  22. Hotly Spiced says:

    I’ll look out for them when I’M IN NEW YORK! Joanne, I’m coming; not sure if you’re aware. I have to come to rescue Miss Arabella. She’s so homesick. So I arrive on Monday and will be in NYC until July 22nd. I appreciate you must be beyond busy but if you’d like to have coffee with a couple of Aussies, we’d love to meet you. We’re staying in Fifth Avenue – will put up a blog post tonight with all the news. Unbelievable! xx

  23. Monet says:

  24. Dangerous but delicious huh? Sounds like a good motto for lots of things 🙂

  25. Kate says:

    These look similar to the Kind bars I love so much. I’ll have to give them a try.

  26. Leah Davis says:

    Love your GIF!! I will have to give these a try. I’ve recently been loving dark chocolate covered goji berries – so maybe I’ll try the goji flavor first!!

  27. Oh gosh, how I wish I could get these here! ;–) They look soooo yummy!

  28. These look good. I will have to look for these Taste of Nature bars in the stores.
