Raw Crunch Bars – The Pros & Cons of this Paleo Bar

Raw Crunch Bars Variety Pack with 6 Different FlavorsThe Raw Crunch Bar Variety Pack offer a great solution for people who want to eat healthy, but also enjoy snacking too.

The Pros:

These raw paleo bars contain a well-rounded list of ingredients, with a good amount of healthy fats, protein, fiber and carbs.

One of the first things that I noticed about Raw Crunch Bars is that they contain several ingredients that supply omega-3 fatty acids. A diet high in omega-3 fatty acids helps boost brain function and cardiovascular health.

People on a low-carb diet or who are trying to lose weight will also like this paleo bar. Each package contains only 150 calories, and there are approximately 10 grams of carbs in each serving. (It is important to note that 3 of these grams are from fiber.)

While only containing 150 calories, these bars are nutritionally dense and very satisfying due to the healthy fats. They also don’t spike your blood sugar, since they only contain 5 grams of sugar per serving.

Something unique about this product is that the company dehydrates the ingredients in their bars rather than baking them. In addition to keeping them raw, it helps to keep the enzymes intact for an even healthier snack. (Enzymes aid with digestion.)

More Health Benefits of the Raw Crunch Bars:

  • Raw
  • Organic
  • Non-GMO
  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Contains Superfoods and Antioxidants

Possible Disadvantages:

1. Raw Crunch Bars cost about $20 for 6-bar variety pack. They cost more than other organic and all-natural paleo bars. For example, the Raw Revolution Bars cost about $20 on average for a package of 12 bars. These also contain organic, raw and non-GMO ingredients with comparable levels of protein, fiber and omega-3’s.

That said, you can save money on Raw Crunch Bars by getting a 12-bar pack of a single flavor. These cost between $31 and $33.

2. All of the Raw Crunch Bars contain nuts and seeds. If you are allergic to these ingredients or aren’t a fan of trail mix, you probably shouldn’t get these bars.
