“Yoga Bars, Naam toh Suna hoga?” (Yoga Bars, Betcha heard the name?). Well, apart from my febrile & futile effort at trying to modify that “Shahrukh Khan” monologue, I have a big soft spot for these babies.
Let’s face it, I’m a hardcore foodie and that does put me in constant touch (all 5 senses) with food, all the time. I’m always eating out, every other day & the days I’m not, I need to make sure, I keep a check on calories, easy portions & invest as much green as I can in my meal.
I, have the meals sorted, but the dilemmas happen at the dreaded snacking bits of time. It’s ever so easy to actually, fall prey to those delectable fries or crisps or just something illicitly not good for you. In order to curb that craving, or sometimes a meal itself, I scoured the grocery isles for an alternative. There were quite a lot of options to be honest, but what attracted me to these bars, were their claims. They just had been everything I was looking for.
The “Yoga Bar” endeavour had started with 2 young & dynamic founders “Suhasini & Anindita Sampat Kumar” venturing into the field of ” Healthy Snacking “. I’m a sucker for all young entrepreneurship, i, super love supporting it. The talented sister duo, put the idea to the mould & viola.. We had the “Yoga Bar”.
The packaging is par excellence. The matte feel, the great font & the smart use of colours, makes this a hit.
The most primary thing that impressed me was, that they don’t add cornstarch or added vitamins in their products. They try to keep the bars as natural as possible. The raw & organic feel, that the bars have is commendable. The first bite, itself is a dead giveaway about the quality.
Let’s break it down now, here are the brief insights:
- All natural product.
- Devoid of preservatives, artificial flavours & additives.
- No cornstarch or added vitamins.
- Limited shelf life, which means it’s good for you.
- Great combinations, delish bars & exotic taste.
- Inexpensive, about Rs.35/- per bar.
- Filled with fiber goodness.
- No transfat.
- Has chia seeds.
- Only best ingredients chosen, high stringency.
- Are aids in weightloss diets or clean eating regimes.
Phew!! Quite a list eh? My favourite bars have to be ” Chocolate Chunk Nut and Peanut butter”
While, the Peanut butter one is smooth & textured, the Chocolate Chunk Nut is nutty & chewy. Trust me, when I say this.. These babies keep you satiated for hours, which I guess is due to the fact, that they have chia seeds in them.
With the fitness market booming & new brands popping up with an array of products, Yoga Bar stands true to its ideals & doesn’t compromise on giving you the best “Healthy Snack” your money can buy.
Grab your bar & chew away to health.
