Taste of Nature Review - a Healthy and Delicious Snack!

Most of the time I like to make our own treats.  And most of the time they are pretty healthy, with the occasional indulgence in sugary cookies, or even cake, mostly for The Captain...

But once in a while I come across a ready-made product that is so good and so delicious that I have to share it with you.

These Taste of Nature Organic Fruit and Nut Bars are one of those very special products. 

Everything you see comes straight from nature.  Nothing artificial, no fillers and no chemicals with hard to pronounce names!

Certified Organic - Gluten Free -  Vegan -  Kosher
Non GMO - Low Glycemic Index

Just take a look at a few of these gorgeous bars:

Canadian Maple Forest
and you can smell the maple syrup as soon as you open the package!

Pecans, apricots, Brazil nuts, honey, brown rice syrup, raisins, whole grain brown rice crisps, agave  nectar, maple syrup flavor, vanilla flavor, sea salt.

Himalayan Goji Summit and Persian Pomegranate Garden

Himalayan Goji Summit
Peanuts, raisins sunflower seeds, agave surup, almonds, goji berries, brown rice syrup, raspberries.

Persian Pomegranate Garden
Cashews, walnuts, apples, agave nectar, figs, cranberries, apple juice concentrate, sunflower oil, pomegranate juice concentrate, whole grain crisp rice, brown rice syrup, raspberries.

Taste of Nature bars are sweetened with agave syrup which ranks very low in the glycemic index.  As a result six of the eleven Taste of Nature bars were clinically tested and attained GI scores ranging from 38.2 to 51.7, well below the low GI target of 55.  This makes them a particularly good choice for a snack between meals that will satisfy hunger and maintain blood sugar levels... no highs and lows.

Whether you are watching sodium, dairy, wheat, cholesterol or are vegan or vegetarian, Taste of Nature meets the most stringent nutritional requirements with outstanding, satisfying taste.

  • No animal products
  • No dairy
  • No preservatives
  • No quasi natural sweeteners

There are 11 different combinations in the line up, and they are all mouth-wateringly tempting and absolutely satisfying and delicious. They are very simply packaged in a clear cello wrapper so that you can see exactly what you are getting.... and I bet you will not be able to choose just one or two!

It is so nice to find a really healthy pre-packaged snack that travels well. Stash one in your purse,your glovebox, your desk, your pocket, or your gym bag, and you have a nutritious snack that will easily take you to your next meal or give you the energy you need to carry on with your busy day.

The Captain and I have been enjoying them immensely... usually we open one and share it, savoring every little bite!

For my Weight Watchers friends, I want to tell you that these bars have between 150 and 220 calories and they range from 4 to 8 WW P+ each. 

You can buy them in several different retail outlets or online at  - Check out their contests and community initiatives while you are there.

Thanks to Taste of Nature for supplying me with a bar in every flavor in order to write this review.


  1. ok no doubt you have my attention!! I am all about clean eating, sometimes you need to grab something quick because like me I'm on the road every other week. I am going to be looking for this in the store now!

  2. Those look great! (Especially the Canadian Maple Forest; I'm Canadian, you know!). I'm like you; I give my kids a lot of home made snacks so that I can control the content, but sometimes, you need a pre-packaged option.

    Do you know offhand how many grams of sugar each has?

  3. Canadian Maple...Yummm! Thanks for the review! :)

  4. Mmmm Maple...they sound delicious!

  5. Those sound so yummy! I could go for one right now LOL.

  6. Thank you soooo much for sharing these what seem to be AMAZING go-to snacks! You know I live a very restricted eating habit as of late, and these seem to fit the bill! I even did a quick search to see if they were monopolized and they appear clean all the way around, which I'm a huge fan of. That's awesome you were able to write a review for a company clearly new to several of us:)

    Great job!

  7. I like the fact that they are a low GI food. I'm drawn to the maple flavor...


Thanks for leaving me a comment.
