If you guys remember my article about how to read packaged food labels, I pushed Kind and Clif bars into the ring to duke it out. However, both food bars failed in the sugar department, and the Clif bar had too much sodium. In the end, the Kind bar won, but still had a whopping 12g of sugar.
Enter: the YAWP! Bar, named after a line from Walt Whitman’s poem Leaves of Grass.
The lovely people over at YAWP! were kind enough to send me free breakfast bars to try out and review on here, and my photographer brother had a ball taking dramatic shots of said breakfast bars in trees and in plants:
The YAWP! bar stood out to me not only because it fits in perfectly to the vegan, paleo, and clean-eating diets, but also because the bar contains real food in an ingenious way that makes me wonder why the heck no other nutrition bar has been able to do the same as well.
YAWP! Naked Nutrition Bars have only seven ingredients, all of which are organic. The Mocha bar has ten ingredients, but they’re all organic as well. I find it impressive that there is no grain in these YAWP! bars, which makes them paleo-friendly.
More great perks of the YAWP! bars:
- All natural
- Low carbs (under 13g)
- High protein (7g)
- No added sugar or sugar substitutes
- No additives or preservatives
- They’re handmade in small batches in Hillsborough, NC
The Cafe Mocha nutrition bar has a bit of a chocolaty, semi-sweet taste, textured, crunchy, interesting, slight hint of coffee. Dates made it a bit sweet, but not so sweet that it overpowers the rest of the bar. The Naked bar has a more savory flavor, but still had a great texture to it. Both bars are very filling and delicious. They’re crunchy, tasty, and prove that you don’t need sugar to make something taste great.
These bars are perfect for snacks in between classes or as a pre-workout snack, and I highly recommend them!
I don’t recommend many products on my blog, so when I do, you can expect a truly great product.
