These days we should all be aware that there are a lot of preservatives, additives and sugar added to a large amount of our food. So, when we talk about the “Bar” market, really most of what is available at the grocery store that are called “Granola bars” are in fact just a chocolate candy bar in disguise.
That being said, there has been a recent shift in the market toward healthy options on the go. So when we heard that Kashi (the 7 whole grains people) had come up with a new line of bars made with natural ingredients, and without all the additives, we had to meet with them and see for ourselves.
and we did just that!
The good people at Kashi invited us in to see the ingredients, the process and get to know and taste the new bars for ourselves.
The first addition is the Kashi joi Nut Bars with wholesome ingredients that give you a little boost to keep moving. Ideal as a healthy snack with 6 grams of protein, the unique flavour combinations are:
- Raspberry Dark Chocolate Hazelnut – Rich hazelnuts and chocolate come together with fresh raspberries to provide a delicious combination of sweet nuttiness and bright flavours.
- Pistachio Fig & Lemon – With a lively combination of on-trend Mediterranean flavours, this bar adds zest to your palate with a truly unique combination of ingredients.
- Coconut Cranberry Almond – This bar features the brightness of cranberry, the cool smoothness of coconut and an exotic hint of ginger.
The second addition are the Kashi joi Almond Butter Energy Nut Bars. With almond butter as the primary ingredient, these substantial bars help satisfy hunger and are ideal to help prepare for physical activity. Soy-free and providing 9-10 grams of protein strictly from the goodness of nuts, the three delicious flavours are:
- Dark Chocolate Espresso Nut – This choice features a combination of dark chocolate and ground coffee, rounded out with a note of cinnamon.
- Banana Chocolate Nut – The familiar comfort of chocolate and banana are elevated with a sophisticated flavour that’s natural, not overpowering.
- Blueberry Maple Pecan – A classic combination of blueberry and maple are combined with pecans for an indulgent yet satisfying flavour.
Made in Canada and only available in Canada, Kashi joi nut bars are grounded in a delicious base of whole nuts and are bursting with real, simple ingredients selected with care for both their taste and their inherent nutritional value.
So if you’re looking for a Candy Bar, this isn’t what you want, but if you’re looking for a quick and healthy snack without all that other junk, it’s probably time you tried the new Kashi Joi bars for yourself.
