My first introduction to GoMacro bars was in 2014 when I was attending Southwest Institute of Healing Arts for my Holistic Nutrition certification. The bookstore carried them, and they were great in a pinch! Sometimes my days got so busy, I didn’t have time to grab a solid dinner — ironic, I know. But I always felt like the ingredient list was good, they were organic, vegan AND tasted great!
When Run Eat Tweet AZ told me I would be given a variety pack of mini GoMacro bars to sample, I was STOKED!! (The bookstore only had 2 or 3 flavors and they were always the same; the variety pack had them all!) The day my box arrived it was like Christmas! I went running to the front door and nearly slipped and fell on my way there (True. Story. Darn socks.)
I immediately opened the package to see all the available flavors. I was AMAZED to see there were eleven flavors!!
- Protein Pleasure – Peanut butter chocolate chip
- Sweet Rejuvenation – Cashew Butter
- Protein Replenishment – Peanut Butter
- Prolonged Power – Banana + Almond Butter
- Protein Purity – Sunflower butter + Chocolate
- Wholehearted Heaven – Almond Butter + Carob
- Balanced Goodness – Granola + Coconut
- Sweet Revival – Sesame Butter + Dates
- Sunny Uplift – Cherries + Berries
- Protein Paradise – Cashew Caramel
- Morning Harvest – Apples + Walnuts
I’m not gonna lie. Immediately after taking a few pics, I ate one bar – peanut butter chocolate chip. Because who doesn’t love that combo? It didn’t disappoint.
Ok, I had two bars. 😀 This one was granola coconut. Look at those simple ingredients! Each mini bar is around 100 calories.
One of the other things I loved about the GoMacro mini bars, is how convenient they were. After a run I could grab one and eat it while I was stretching. Pictured below is the sesame butter + dates bar. I didn’t like it as much as I thought, but I’m not a huge fan of the sesame flavor in general, but I LOVE dates so it balanced out.
And especially after a trail run with the Run Eat Tweet AZ crew! 7 tough miles and I was HUNGRY! I grabbed banana + almond butter and almond butter + carob, both are tasty choices. But without a doubt, my favorite flavor is peanut butter chocolate chip! Then a close second is granola + coconut, and cherries + berries taking third place.
Side note: As a graphic designer, I have to say — go check out their website! It is SO cool! I also love the packaging on each and every bar. They are all unique and relate to the ingredients; I love the little details. It is rare for me to love everything about a product, but from the taste, the ingredients, the packaging and beyond, I really have to say you won’t be disappointed in GoMacro.
I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to try each and every flavor and share my experience with you here. As a bonus, they are also gluten-free, in addition to being vegan. WIN WIN!
