“These bars are to die for!”

A BGOOD Bar Review by Marc Wagner, M.D. @

That’s what my wife said after demolishing two bars. Our current favorites are the Espresso Date Nut Bar, the Peanut Ginger Bar, and the Cherry Pistachio.

More than 50% of the calories in BGOOD Bars come from healthy naturally occurring fats in nuts, seeds, and flax. This gives the bars a low-glycemic index in spite of tasting sweet and it also gives them plenty of stick-to-your ribs energy—a backpacker’s dream. (But maybe too good for backpacking. I mean, backpackers should be roughing it, right?)

If you’re picky about the quality of your chocolate, then you’ll appreciate the attention to dark chocolate detail in these bars; it’s exquisite. And if you’re concerned about the issue of mold or yeast in nut-based bars, then you’ll be happy to know that BGOOD Bars receive an excellent score on the Water Activity Analysis from the Food Innovation Center at OSU. Maybe that’s why these bars taste so fresh. Because they are.

Moist but never messy, crunchy but never crumbly, these bars have totally replaced big-name commercial nut bars at our house. The maker, Judy Goodman, has generously donated an entire box of 12 bars (6 flavors) for this giveaway.

bon appétit!

Always gluten-free and non-GMO.
