Snacks to Feel Good About | Raw Revolution

When I was offered the chance to sample Raw Revolution Glo bars, I jumped at the opportunity. A bar made with organic, vegan, gluten-free and non GMO ingredients? Of course I'll try it!

Health and wellness are another big focus of mine, and in my quest to lead a more natural life, food comes into play. While I no longer have a meatless diet, I focus on healthier, more whole foods in cooking and in snacking. Especially when it comes to snacks I can keep at my desk, I want something that will make me feel better, rather than sluggish in the afternoons.

What intrigued me about Raw Revolution was their company style. They're a woman-owned business, and founder Alice Benedetto is a registered nurse and natural foods chef. All the bars arevegan, gluten-free, kosher, dairy-free and non-GMO.

When I got my samples in the mail, I was excited to see a variety of Mixed Nuts, Caramel and Sea Salt; Creamy Peanut Butter and Sea Salt; and Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt bars.

Each of the three bars have a very good flavor to them. They're filling, without making you feel overloaded. Not too salty, not too sweet, and not too vegan-tasting. And that's what's important, right? There are so many vegan snacks available, and they all sound tasty, but end up tasting like cardboard. These bars actually taste like food!


Admittedly, I'm not the hugest fan of peanut butter, but I was open to trying it in these bars. Also admittedly, I am a huge fan of sea salt mixed with sweet items. A dark chocolate bar with sea salt sprinkles? I am all over it. I was especially excited to try the Raw Revolution dark chocolate, peanut butter and sea salt bar. It's still my favorite one of the three. The chocolate was softer and melted in my mouth, which was a great complement to the other flavors. The peanut butter in all of the bars wasn't overwhelming, so I enjoyed it more.

They're a perfectly sized pick-me-up snack that leave me feeling full and healthy.

In our house, I am more of a foodie hippie, compared to my fiance. So I was pleasantly surprised when I found him going into the pantry and grabbing a bar, without complaining that it was hippie vegan food. In fact, when I went to the pantry to grab the remaining few bars that I thought were still in there, I found someone had taken them as travel snacks for his recent trip to San Francisco. Maybe I was a little bummed that I had no photography props, but I was more excited that they were so well-received in the house.

Raw Revolution Glo bars...my non-vegan fiance loved them!




Where can you find Raw Revolution? Search their store locator, or order online!

I used their store locator feature to find the grocery stores near me, and found Raw Revolution Glo at Vitamins Plus. They carry a large variety of the Glo flavors and regular flavors, and were very well-priced. Win win!
