Simply Chopped – Snack Bars

Simply Chopped is a company with a goal. One that cares about the environment by actually utilizing eco-friendly ways such as recycling all their paper products and even composting. You can tell they have a strong passion for food just by their ingredients and the process these bars are made. Every Simply Chopped Snack Bar is dairy free, egg free, gluten free, sugar free, soy free, wheat free, and no MSG. Simple, delicious, snacks that you can feel good about eating.

Not to mention that when you purchase Simply Chopped Snack Bar a portion of the profits are donated to reputable charitable organizations that support animal rescue, planet conservation, and humanitarian medical support. That’s why we were very excited for the opportunity to write this delicious review of the Simply Chopped Snack Bars.

Peanut Butter and Honey
An appetizing blend of peanut butter, rolled oats, and sweet honey provide a quick energy source that is natural and delicious.

Here at the Gear Nuts we are self-proclaimed peanut butter and honey connoisseurs, so naturally we were a little  skeptical about this particular flavor. Fighting each other down to the last square we were pleasantly surprised at just how good this flavor was. All the natural ingredients really stood out and enhanced the flavor. One of the best blends we’ve tasted. Probably because it loaded with dates, gluten-free oats, peanuts, raisins, almonds, coconut, honey, vanilla (water, alcohol 35%, vanilla bean extract), and cinnamon.

Cranberry Pineapple
A mix of cranberry, pineapple, almonds, and coconut offer both natural sweetness and the dietary value of fruits and nuts.

The Cranberry Pineapple bar was one of our favorites! The blend of fruits and nuts together made for an amazing combination. What really sold us on this one was the chunks of pineapple throughout the bar. This flavor is filled with dates, dried cranberries (dried cranberries, apple juice infused, sunflower oil), gluten free oats, pineapple, raisins, almonds, coconut, honey, almond flour, cinnamon, orange juice, and of course, orange zest. Yum!

In the photo above you can really see all the fresh ingredients that make up the snack bars. Simply Chopped has worked very hard to create personal relationships with all of their suppliers in order to obtain only the highest quality ingredients. They also produce the snack bars in small batches to maintain taste and freshness in every bite. You can tell they really care about the outcome of their products.

Blueberry Cocoa
Sweet blueberries with cocoa entwine two of nature’s favorite flavors in a bar that offers high fiber and antioxidants.

Alright cocoa lovers, this flavor was amazing! The cocoa and blueberry fused together made for a very sweet and unique flavor that left us wanting more. Simply Chopped hit the nail on the head when pairing up these two ingredients. It was all the dates, dried blueberries (dried blueberries, apple juice infused, sunflower oil), gluten-free oats, coconut, honey, cocoa, and cinnamon that really pulled this together.

Pistachio & Almond
A subtle crunch of almonds and pistachios infused with a hint of spices provide a great way to relax.

So not only are we nuts about gear, were also nuts about nuts! The pistachio and almond snack bar was super filling and hearty among other things. We really like the hint of cloves in this bar and how the pistachio flavor is mild but builds with every bite.  This bar includes dates, gluten free oats, raisins, almonds, pistachios, honey, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla (water, alcohol 35%, vanilla bean extract).

You can tell the second you bite into one of the snack bars that they have simplified things by contain only ingredients that you can pronounce. It’s great to know what you’re eating and being able to see it in every bite is even better. We’ve fallen in love with these bars, they are simply delicious!

Simply Chopped has a great kids coloring pages section on their website that helps make clean eating fun. Our Little Adventurers kept plenty busy all while learning good eating habits.

Head over to their website and check them out at simplychopped.com and order some delicious bars.

See you on the trails!
