PROBAR Gluten-Free Fruition Bars {Review, Giveaway & Coupon Code}

PROBAR logo
When it comes to snacking, I'm always on the lookout for products that combine three important factors: healthy, tasty and portable. After all, between school, sports, lessons, activities, friends, appointments and more, being able to pull something out of my bag for the kids and I to munch on can often be a lifesaver.

Although I would like to say that those items that I pull out meet my three criteria... that's not always the case. Even if I mean well, I find that what constitutes an on-the-go snack can sometimes cross the line over into unhealthy treats that are better off left at home.

Therefore, when I was introduced to PROBAR and the way that their meal bars are made from whole, organic, 100% vegan, raw foods, my interest was peaked. Then, after hearing that PROBAR had taken their commitment to convenient, natural, high-performance nutrition and went one step further by creating gluten-free products, I knew it was time to try these for ourselves.

Fruition

A natural alternative with easy to pronounce ingredients and a variety of flavors, PROBAR's new Fruition bars are the first certified gluten-free product in their lineup. These fruit-dense, superfood snack bars deliver one serving of fruit in every bar, are built from a 100% vegan, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free medley of dates, oats, chia seeds, and cashews, and contain only around 160 calories.

When a selection of the seven flavors of Fruition arrived, the hardest decision was figuring out which to sink my teeth into first!

PROBAR Fruition

Available in Blueberry, Cherry, Cran-Raspberry, Peach, Lemon, Strawberry and Chocolate Orange, I unwrapped a Peach and was impressed with the thick texture and the way that I could see the amount of fruit, dates, seeds and more right inside.

PROBAR Fruition review

As each bite results in a dense, slightly sticky, extremely tasty result, it didn't take long before I felt as though I was a little hooked on Fruition. After all, the texture is balanced, the flavors are delicious, and I felt satisfied at the end of the bar knowing that I wouldn't be immediately hungry 10 minutes later!

PROBAR Fruition review

While the Fruition bars immediately met my criteria for a go-to snack (on-the-go or at home), I knew that the true test would be with my kids and if they were as excited to find the PROBAR packaging awaiting them as I was.

Even though they seemed somewhat skeptical at first, the initial taste test (and those that followed) was a success!

kids love probar

Considering that we are all new PROBAR fans around here, I'm looking forward to adding Fruition to our regular rotation of snacks and knowing that they will provide my family with the healthy goodness that they need and the delicious taste that they desire. Instead of feeling guilty pulling out a food that is packed with processed ingredients that I can't pronounce, I'll know that these are simply natural!

Retailing for around $1.79 per bar or $18 per box of 12, Fruition are available in store near you or online directly from PROBAR. Even better, right now if you enter the coupon code BLOGGER at checkout from the PROBAR Shop, you'll receive 40% off of your first order! Considering a box of 12 is currently on sale for $16.63, that discount will bring it down to less than $10!

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be able to enjoy the fruity flavor and wholesome goodness of Fruition bars, because...

One lucky person will win a box of 12 Fruition bars from PROBAR!
