Long time, no WIAW, eh? Well I am back for the most fun food party on the web this week! Though I will say, my pics leave a lot to be desired. Now that we are well into the fall season, the times for good lighting are few and far between. So please excuse the dark, unattractive foods pics! Doing the best I can.
To make up for my long hiatus away from WIAW, I thought I’d start things off with a bang this week by giving away some new bars I’ve had the chance to try!
Art of Raw is a Canadian brand that is now officially available in the US through their online store! I actually tried these in Canada a few years back and liked them a lot. So I was bummed that they weren’t sold here…until now. The generous founders as Art of Raw sent me a big box of bars for myself (half of which is already gone! 🙁 ) and agreed to send one to one of my lucky readers as well!
You will LOVE these bars, people! As their name suggests, they are totally raw, vegan, and have no added sugar. Each bar is handmade and they come in some of the most unusual flavors I’ve ever heard of. Creamy Cinnamon Maca (spicy and sweet..with almost a chai like flavor!), Lemony Coconuts (zesty and tropical), Spiced Cacao and Goji (bold with a little heat and nice sweet goji flavor), and Minty Cacao Truffle (chocolate and mint…need I say more!?) to be exact. If I had to choose a favorite I would go with Creamy Cinnamon Maca only because I’ve never had another bar like it.
Aside from the taste, I also love the SIZE of these bars. They are much bigger than your traditional fruit and nut bar and they are nutrient dense! Tons of healthy fats and nourishing calories. I also really like that they are more firm than other fruit and nut bars. As per usual with my bar eating, I like them best straight out of the freezer….I swear it makes the flavor even more pronounced!
So do you think these are something you’d like to try? Well enter below to win your very own mixed box of bars!
Good luck, everyone!
