My New Favorite GF Snack and Giveaway-Truebars

Disclaimer: I was given a sleeve of Truebars to review and giveaway as their blog. I am a Truebar Brand Ambassador but received no compensation for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always. 

I know I'm a huge slacker and haven't tackled reviewing all the great products I tasted at Expo East. Honestly I'm just finishing up going through my samples and goodies that I lugged home with me! 

One product that really stood out to be was Truebar from Bakery on Main-which I had never heard of before the Expo. I talked with Sara there and then got in contact with some super nice people from Bakery on Main who sent me a bunch of Truebars to try and review.  
I just really like these bars as an alternative to some of the protein bars I eat in my rotation. I'm really excited to announce that since connecting with the brand, I've become a Truebar and Bakery on Main Brand Ambassador! I'm sure you'll be seeing more of these bars, but let me tell you more about them!

the swag I was sent
Truebars are a product from Bakery on Main, a small-batch,gluten-free bakery/company that started due to the need for gluten-free options in the bakery's home of Connecticut.  Truebars are great because as their slogan says, they have NOTHING to hide

The ingredients are all spelled out for you on the back of the bars and there is nothing weird, chemical, or deceiving.  Truebars are made with many low-GI ingredients and have lots of fiber and Omega 3 from chia seeds.  They are awesome not matter what kind of diet or lifestyle you follow because they are non-GMO, dairy and casein fee, low sodium, certified gluten-free, Kosher Parve, and contain no transfats or cholesterol! 

Check out the Truebar ingredient list (all on their website!)

At Expo East there were TONS of different yummy protein or snack bars that I tasted. I can't even tell you how many I sampled. Truebar stood out to me not only because it is gluten-free but because the bars are less than 200 calories which makes them great as a pre-run fuel or snack.  

Most of them are sweet from the fruit the bars are made with so they definitely satisfy my afternoon sweet tooth!  I seriously wouldn't be smoozing some bar brand to the interwebs if I didn't actually love them. 

I really fell in love with Truebars because they came in so many unique and delicious flavors! Truebar has 6 flavors that you can check out here 
  • Coconut Cashew
  • Apricot Almond Chai
  • Fruit & Nut
  • Hazelnut Chocolate Cherry
  • Raspberry Chocolate Almond
  • Walnut Cappucino
My favorite has to to be the hazelnut chocolate cherry, with the coconut cashew and apricot almond chai as close seconds. I'm just a sucker for chocolate and cherries. It is so delicious, and the flavor definitely stands out. The apricot almond chai also has a really strong chai flavor which I wasn't expecting when I first tried it-SO good! Since they are made with fruit and nuts mostly, the texture of these reminds me of a Larabar.


Like I said before, I've been eating them as an afternoon or post-dinner snack when I want something sweet or eat half a bar before a workout or run in the morning. It provides the perfect amount of fuel to get my body going and stop my stomach from rumbling in the mornings (forever hungry, over here). 

You can check out the store locator or order bars here on their website where they are offering a sleeve of 12 bars for $17.99 with free shipping!
