Energy bars are certainly something we depend on as a family (I don’t go ANYWHERE without food or the kids rise up against me… ) We have tried a bunch of them and I have to say this up-and-coming new company has something BIG going for them! Created and perfected by Derek and Brittany Manwill, Mazama Bars are giving the “Big Guys” a run for their…bars….(or money!)?? I got a chance to taste them months ago and have been eagerly awaiting their site to get up and running to be able to introduce them to you all.
Just like they claim, they are fresh, tasty and nutrient-rich, and something I have to hide and save for the outdoor adventures (or we would eat them every day!) They come in 3 different flavors (chocolate banana, wild berry and hazelnut mocha). I personally detest the taste of coffee, and think the hazelnut mocha ones are my favorite (though they are all truly delicious.) They go for $42 for a box of 12 or $22 for a variety box of 6 bars. Yes, a bit more expensive, but their size and ingredients definitely warrant the cost.
I managed to corner Britt long enough to ask her a few questions – I really think sometimes this is the very best way to get to know a company, especially a new one! Make sure you read all the way to the end for a chance to win some bars for yourself!
