I received these complimentary products for review as a Sweat Pink Ambassador. All opinions are my own.
I was super excited to get my first opportunity as a Sweat Pink Ambassador to review the Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bars. I’d been curious about hemp for awhile and this was a perfect introduction to it, as well as to Manitoba Harvest’s products.
I admit that I’m not usually a fan of bars. I’ve tried my fair share and I usually like them a few times, but then can’t continue to eat them. However, I went into this with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised.
Before I even tasted then, I checked out the ingredients and nutritional information. Below are photos of the Chocolate bar.
While it might seem like there is a high amount of fat, these bars can fill in as a small meal on the go so the numbers overall seem right on target. I was impressed with the 10g of protein and 10g of Omegas, as well as how low the sodium, carb and sugar totals were.
I was also impressed with the ingredients list.
Nothing crazy here! In fact, you might even have a bunch of those ingredients in your own pantry. So as you can see, before I even got to the taste test these bars had already passed both the nutrition and ingredient tests.
Now would they stand up when it came to taste?
I think my face in that photo says yes! They were really good. The bars were soft, which I like my bars to be, not overly sweet, and quite yummy. They were also filling. They’d be a great pre or post-workout snack, a quick meal on the go, or just when you need a healthy snack to satisfy your hunger.
