GoodOnYa Bars Review & Giveaway


"The GoodOnYa Bar is a bar gone rogue. Not afraid to use real food with healthy fats. This is not just an energy bar, but an organic nutrition bar that offers you real value for your money. Organic, dehydrated and full of flavor. This is what you should you be eating."- from GoodOnYa's website

The folks at GoodOnYa sent me some of their organic bars to try. I'm a big fan of healthy foods that require no effort on my part- open wrapper and eat! I tried out all three flavors, and am definitely a fan! I wish now that I had taken some photos to show you, but I was too busy eating!

The bars come in 3 flavors. I tried the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate ones first because hello- chocolate! The texture is a little like a very moist, chewy chocolate chip cookie, or maybe like an oatmeal cookie, thanks to the little crunch from the sesame seeds. There isn't a ton of chocolate, but the chocolatey bits are super dark, so you still get a lot of chocolate taste. I think my favorite was the Breakfast Bar, which has sunflower seeds, raisins, brazil nuts and maple syrup, among other tasty ingredients. I love looking at an ingredient list and seeing all things I can pronounce! And the third flavor, Peanut Butter Honey, is quite tasty, too! It tastes like real peanut butter (which it should, since that's what's in it!) instead of the fake peanut buttery taste you get in most regular granola bars. It was hard to resist trying all 3 bars in one day!

The bars are hand made in small batches in California, which I like- there's something nice about eating something that isn't one of millions made that day. Allergy note- Some of these obviously contain peanut butter, and the location where they are made obviously works with nuts, so you should probably skip this one if you have nut allergies!

If you are interested in trying them out, GoodOnYa ships orders for a flat $5 fee (only to the US for now), or you can try out a sampler pack like the one I got (one bar of each flavor) for $10 including shipping.

GoodOnYa is offering one of my readers the chance to win a sampler pack of bars- one of each flavor, a $10 value! To enter, leave a comment telling me which of the 3 flavors you think you would like the most! (Be sure I have a way to contact you in case you win!) This giveaway is open to USA residents only.

Entries must be recieved by 11:59 PM on April 3, 2011! I'll e-mail the winner on the , they have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen!
