Review: The Paleo Diet Bar

I think the search for the perfect Paleo protein bar is one a lot…a LOT…of folks have taken on but rarely get right.  Larabars are great, but they’re pure sugar.  AMRAP, Rx Bars, and even the more-Primal-than-Paleo Quest Bars are all nice to have around for emergencies but, at least in my case, I’m still looking.

Or I was until I was given the chance to sample a couple of the new Paleo Diet Bars.  OK, so the name isn’t the most creative, but what hooked me was that they’re the first meal replacement/protein bars to be officially endorsed by Dr. Loren Cordain, one of the most instrumental figures in the Paleo movement.  Why so special?

“The company making them has gone to extensive lengths to ensure they are Paleo specific. They even did a potassium sodium breakdown to ensure hunter gatherer composition” (Jon DeLeon, Paleo Diet Foods)

While you guys know I’m really not all about turning Paleo into an exercise in historical re-enactment, I was pretty impressed with the macro- and micro-nutrient panel.  The bars boast an impressive 17 grams of protein (from nuts, hemp, and egg whites) and 9 essential amino acids while being completely soy, dairy, grain, and legume free.  The ingredients are all things I can pronounce, too…alway a good thing!

  • Almonds
  • Dates
  • Egg White Protein Powder
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Dried Cranberries (Cranberries, Apple Juice Concentrate)
  • Hemp Protein Powder
  • Strawberry Juice Concentrate
  • Coconut Oil
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Sea Salt

There are two flavors available–cranberry almond (my favorite) and cinnamon raisin (also good).  The bars are hefty enough to be a complete meal replacement so as a snack half was plenty for me.  Overall: great flavor, filling, and portable.  I got to test them during finals, so they were just what I needed to grab and go in the morning but are also a terrific option for the holiday season and all of the flights, road trips, and customer service lines that come with it.

My verdict?  Give em a try, fo’ sho’.

    I was intrigued until I saw the label, 12 Servings in one bar! Am I reading it correctly?

      I don’t think that you are reading it right…from what I can make out on the label in the picture above, it says “Serving size 1 bar(70g), servings per container 1″
