Core Foods Bar Review & Giveaway

I was recently introduced to Core Foods (HERE) by one of their representatives.  CORE Meals are FRESH portable food. They're as convenient as packaged products, but they're not candy, they're food. Each pack is 4 hours of stable, balanced energy. Grab instead of breakfast when you're in a rush, or after a workout for a solid recovery.  One bar plus two glasses of water is equivelant to a full bowl of oatmeal and four hours of energy.
 
 
 
I was sent an assortment of Core Food Defender Meal Bars (HERE).  I received three flavors:  Raw Almond Raisin, Raw Cashew Cacao, Raw Walnut Banana
 
A High-Fiber Vegan Meal for toning and weight management.  They carefully mix 5 fresh organic plants to pack all 13 amino acids, high plant fiber, and essential fatty acids into one balanced meal on the go.
 
This food is FRESH. Store in your freezer for maximum life and flavor. Take anywhere for up to 1 week. 
 
I liked the chewy consistency of the bar - similar, but a more moist two the standard Clif Bar.  However, these aren't sweet at all.  If you are looking for a sweet meal replacement bar, these high-fiber bars are definitely not going to be a sweet pairing with your morning coffee.  Enjoyed my bars with a carton of yogurt or a banana.  These high-fiber bars definitely left me satisfied and not hungry, though.
 
Each bar weighs a whopping 3.0 oz.  These are some solid meals in bar-form.  A box of 10 bars (meals) is $39.99.  The pricetag is a little steep for me, when you figure out the price point per bar.  Cheaper than going out to lunch, but not as cheap as I can typically pack my own breakfast or lunch.

  4. I would like to try the almond raisin version that I saw on the website. I'm sure it would be tasty and very satisfying with the fiber and healthy fats.
