Well, look what showed up at my doorstep about a month ago: the next best thing to being there!
As mentioned in my last post, the kind people at Bora Bora foods mailed me a really nice package, including their newly-reformulated bars to try. Honestly – and I’m not “just saying that” – they’re GREAT.
*Pros of Bora Bora bars over other similar bars: USDA organic, OU kosher, certified vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO. Plus, the flavors are UNIQUE.
Though I don’t suffer from any allergies, their being organic is very important to me, as I try not to buy ‘conventional’ items as much as possible (especially when there’s (dried) fruit involved). I also like that they’re vegan and non-GMO. I was going to add that they’re soy-free (as this is also a positive in my eyes — we’re inundated with that stuff), but I don’t see any official statement to that effect, despite not seeing soy on the ingredient lists.
Also in the package was this awesome mug with the company logo on the back. To my happy surprise, this guy was made in the USA!
This is the Tropical Sesame Cranberry flavor. Look at that! Delicious! Extremely fresh-tasting, gooey-chewy (in a good way), and the tart cranberries really stand out and make your mouth water.
If you like fruit-and-nut/granola bars but hate that they’re often tooth-breakingly hard as rocks, you’ll love these.
This is the Tribal Cinnamon Oatmeal. Again, the flavor was awesome and not at all vague. Funny, because I couldn’t remember the exact name at first and started typing “apple” because there are chunks of dried apple throughout. The cinnamon flavor is bold and this TRULY tastes like a bowl of apple-cinnamon oatmeal (reminded me of those flavored Quaker packets from my childhood). Plus peanuts and raisins for fat, fruit, flavor, and staying power!
Everything came in this cool box. There was also a t-shirt included, which I gave to my mom. Shouldda snapped a pic.
And, now, for the blog world’s tiniest giveaway ever (since I’m supposed to review the bars, the t-shirt has been claimed, and I’m still considering what to do with the mug): who wants five Bora Bora tattoos?? 😉 Don’t all shout out at once. Link to this post on your blog or tweet about it and leave a comment telling that you did so and I’ll randomly pick a winner (probably among the two readers who might “comepete”)! But, really — who couldn’t use
If the folks at Bora Bora ever want to offer some bars up for grabs here, I’ll let you know. 😉
