Picky Bars [Review]

Picky Bars

Yum…. Picky Bars are delicious! They’re also full of good for you ingredients and lacking several potential allergens like gluten and dairy. They are the brain-child of Lauren Fleshman – 2x USA 5K champion, Stephanie Rothstein – professional marathoner and Jesse Thomas – professional triathlete; all athletes that are conscious of making sure that what they put in their bodies fuels them appropriately and are sharing that with all of us.

I received a pack of each flavor of Picky Bars to try and I LOVED them! But my absolute favorite was The Need for Seed… I have a weakness for sunflower seed butter.

All-In-Almond Picky Bar - Partially Eaten
All-In-Almond bar… I ate most of it before I thought to take a picture!

The addition of the crispy brown rice cereal in these bars really elevates them, I found that was the element that really made these stand out from other date-based bars. The little bit of crunch adds such a nice texture!

The only downside of the bars is that they’re kind of pricy. For a “rookie pack” of 3 bars it costs $9. If you buy an 8 pack it is $21, reducing the price-per-bar to $2.62 and the “pro pack” is 15 bars for $37, making the individual price $2.46. I am still very tempted to join the Picky Club… 18 bars for $37 as well as other perks. You can order them online or find them in a store, although it doesn’t seem they’re in any Nevada stores as of this posting. But if you see them… grab one. They’re definitely yummy!
