As outdoor enthusiasts, we all consume a lot of bars. Dharma bars fill the bill for those people looking for a bar that is organic, vegan, gluten-free, or kosher. These 42 gram (1.48 oz) bars are available in three flavors that each have a different variety of ingredients to provide nutrition for different purposes. While I don't feel confident enough to explore Dharma Bars' claims for each bar, I can attest to the flavor and ingredients of each.
The bars are listed as Endurance, Recover, and Balance. They all have different nutritional facts and taste profiles.
Endurance consists of dates, almond butter, cocoa, vanilla extract, and Himalayan pink salt. Each bar has 160 calories, 70 of which are fat, and 4 grams of protein. This bar had a nice cocoa flavor with a nice chew without any of super sugary taste of many bars.
Recover is made of dates, almond butter, dried cherries, almonds, rice protein, hemp protein, cocoa, vanilla extract, Himalayan pink salt. These bars also provide 160 calories, 60 from fat, and 6 grams of protein. These bars have more of a dried fruit taste with a hint of cocoa.
Balance offers dates, almond butter, coconut, coconut oil, vanilla bean, cinnamon, and Himalayan pink salt. They have the most calories at 190, 110 from fat, with 3 grams of protein. These have a pronounced coconut flavor and were by far my favorite in the taste department.
The small size of the bars and the price point of $2.50 makes these fairly expensive as far as bars go. They certainly provide a good tasting, nutritional snack for people looking for an organic, vegan, gluten-free, or kosher bar. As far as the purpose of each bar to your nutrition I will leave that up to the individual consumer.
