A couple of weeks ago I was given the opportunity to review AMRAP Nutrition’s newest flavors.  Have you heard of AMRAP nutrtion?  It’s a great company that boasts about their Paleo friendly bars. If you’re anything like me, finding dense and clean nutrition is important.

I was pretty excited when these arrived because they were huge!  I love myself a bar that can act as a meal, especially when in a bind.

I tried my first bar while we were on the road.  It was the Fig Cacao and it was the perfect fuel for a long road trip.  I didn’t feel the need to stop and indulge in fast food and it kept me satiated until we arrived to our destination.  The bar was chewy and the fig flavor was slightly outweighed by the dates, but I love dates so this wasn’t a deal breaker.

I asked my husband to take a bite, but he wasn’t a fan of its chewy nature. I, however sort of love the chewy texture of bars like this.  It makes it feel like more of a treat and lets me daydream about chewing on caramel.

The following morning I ate my second bar as post run recovery fuel.  It was the Almond Honey and it was a perfect texture of chewy with the occasional crunch of nuts all cloaked in a mild honey taste.

Lastly, a few days later I used my last bar, the Cashew Vanilla.  It was bittersweet as I nibbled on each remaining bite.  I kept wondering what I could do to make that final bar last, but before I knew it my sticky fingers were empty.  My stomach was satisfied and my body was fueled for another lunch run.

Much like my Clif Bar addiction, these bars could easily find their way as a staple in my home.  All three of them were delish, but I think my favorite was the Almond Honey!  If it weren’t for the steep price of $30/8pk, I would be ordering these bad boys in a heartbeat.

Lucky for you, you have a chance to win your very own pack!!  I will be giving away three of these 8pks!!!  To enter the giveaway please visit the link below and comment on this post.  Feel free to share with your friends!!
