I'm always looking for tasty 'bars' to use backpacking. Since most of my trips aren't long (usually 1-2 nights), I'm not too concerned about calorie per weight and such, I just want something tasty and easy.
I noticed these Simple Squares in my local organic market, and decided to try them out. Very tasty, small, easily packed. For me, a definite winner. I'll be taking them on backpacking trips from now on.
1 bar weighs 45g, and has 230 calories. 17 grams fat (5 saturated), 16 grams carbs, 6 grams protein. 95 grams sodium, no cholesterol.
Simple ingredients: organic cashews, organic almonds, organic honey, unsweetened coconut, organic vanilla extract, sea salt. That's it in the basic bar. Other bars have an additional ingredient, like rosemary, or coffee, or ginger, etc.
And, as I said, quite tasty!
