Bravo Bars – What Makes These Non-GMO Bars Different?

I recently had the opportunity to try Bravo Bars. They come in 3 different flavors: Chocolate Cran Almond, Cran Nut & Seeds and Cherry Coconut.

Bravo Bars in 3 Flavors, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Non-GMO

As the product box states, they are gluten free, soy free and non-GMO. In addition, the Cran Nut & Seeds flavor is also vegan.

Other Bravo Bar Features Worth Noting:

1. Protein Content

What the packaging doesn’t mention, however, is that these bars are higher in protein (9-13 grams). I think that this important to note, since most people don’t assume that fruit-and-nut snacks contain a lot of protein. The special ingredient here is grass-fed whey protein.

2. Paleo Friendly?

Furthermore, aside from the grass-fed vanilla whey protein, I consider these bars paleo-friendly. Actually, many people following a paleo lifestyle appreciate grass-fed products and therefore I think would like the extra grass-fed protein in these snacks.

How are Bravo Bars Different?

Bravo Bars taste like a homemade snack. The texture feels soft with some crunchiness and some chewiness but not too much. Pieces don’t get stuck in my teeth.

I really like the fact that they digest easily. For example, when I first tried them, I ate 3 bars in one sitting (oops!). However, they did not cause a lump in my stomach or any discomfort like some other bars can.

What I Didn’t Like About Bravo Bars

Bravo Bar Cran Nut and Seed, Soft-Baked Whole Food Bar Overall, I think Bravo Bars make a tasty snack or after-meal treat. That said, I was expecting (and looking forward to) more tanginess from the cranberry and cherry.

I didn’t find the tanginess I thought would be there. I also couldn’t taste the coconut in the Cherry Coconut bar. Therefore, I preferred the Chocolate and Cran Nuts & Seeds bars more.

If you don’t like tangy flavors, this may be good news for you. In any case, the homemade taste make Bravo Bars worth trying.
