Product Review: Health Warrior Pumpkin Seed Bars
Health Warrior has been in business for several years. I first tried their brand when they were a new company making chia bars. Since around 2011 or so when I first tried them the brand has grown a ton and made huge leaps in the food bar industry. I think I even had some packed in my gear for the first World’s Toughest Mudder back in 2011.
I forget how I first learned about the brand but they were small at the time and all I knew were their bars tasted great and had a bunch of Chia seeds in them. I was big on chia as most everyone is after reading the book Born to Run.
Fast forward to the end of 2017, I got an email from the company asking if I wanted to give their new bar a try. The new bar is made with Pumpkin Seeds, Honey, Peanuts, Cocoa powder, Milled Quinoa, Cocoa Extract, Coconut Oil, Peanut Extract, and Sea Salt. While some of the items are not exactly on a normal day to day eating it still is a better option than a lot of bars on the market and these days I find myself dashing from meeting to meeting or trying to get in a class or ski before heading back to the computer. Sometimes I just need a bar in a pinch. I thought, well this is a company I have liked in the past, why not give it a try.
They sent the Pumpkin Seed Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter bars, actually a box of them. I brought one to a meeting with me for the upcoming Utah Podcasters Summit yesterday and found myself grabbing one today while I spent the afternoon doing some video edits. All I can say is these bars taste amazing, just the right amount of sweet and savory for me. I like that all the ingredients are pretty clean and I can read them without weird fillers and crap. They are also Soy Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, so they definitely fit into a lot of different diets.
Some might think of a Payday Bar but for me, it has its own unique taste, and it’s something that can easily be slipped in my jacket pocket skiing, at a meeting, or when I am too lazy to make a meal.
From the first bite, you know you are eating real food and can feel good about it. Health Warrior is currently offering a sampler pack for those interested in trying their new Pumpkin Seed Bars. While I have only tried the one flavor if the rest are even remotely as good as this one, they are definitely a slamdunk.
